Re: Fresno Aviation Thread - 2021

Didn't think I would be seeing the DH4 stick in FAT, but I guess that with QX now flying the E7W out of ANC and other OO/QX E7Ws doing more normally mainline routes, it'll be like this for a while until AS mainline starts bringing back airplanes. That being said, at least AS's traffic mix in FAT is ...

Re: HA announces OGG-LGB, ONT-HNL, AUS-HNL, MCO-HNL

ONT-HNL has long been on the wishlist for ONT travelers. When HA tried the service in the early 2000s, it was on the DC-10 and later the 767 and was put on life support when they tagged LAS onto it to try to fill the plane as much as they could. I believe they also tried it in the 80s with somewhat ...
