I'm in tech, though I don't get into the legal side of things often. Seems like the copyright violation has a basis. But is the AA system so "open" that it can be logged into without having to go in via an API? * API is a means by which two systems communicate with each other. No communica...Jump to post
I don’t know about you all, but I thought of UA’s future international routes from EWR in the next 5-10 years since EWR is UA’s biggest international hub Note, before I share them out, some of these routes right now won’t be able to work due to government restrictions and so forth. Here’s what I sa...Jump to post
I'm having a real issue with photos on this site. Having gone to a full frame canon camera, having a Macbook Pro and Lightroom to post edit my photos in I still get rejections on images that I look at on my screen.

Newark is landlocked. There won't be any new runway. Not necessarily. Tunnel a segment of I-95 and plop another runway over it. Not that radical... If the new terminal at JFK is $9 Billion, I can only imagine how much that will cost.. Well that's a good point. But, if the Federal government pays fo...Jump to post
Excellent work. I'm looking forward to seeing how this evolves once the airlines finalize the summer schedules in the coming months.Jump to post

Is AA still planning to renovate and expand T8? At this point, bring over AS and BA to T8. I went by it on Saturday afternoon. Got a great photo also but unfortunately there's no way to upload a photo to a discussion thread. Looks like they've poured some concrete already and there's lots of constr...Jump to post

Impressive. I first became aware of this reading a Reuters news story: (Reuters) -Delta Air Lines said a flight from South Africa to the United States was temporarily diverted from Atlanta to Boston on Sunday for technical reasons. Flight 201, an Airbus A350, from Johannesburg was initially set to a...Jump to post
This reminds me of a flight I had on an AA763 MIA-LAX 10 years ago. We were stuck at the gate at MIA for about 15 minutes past departure. The Captain came on and explained that they were going to "reboot the systems" on the plane. He gave a great explanation, saying that it was just like w...Jump to post

They can start by getting rid of absolutely asinine things like: (1) charging people who paid business class for seat selection.

There was an airspace rework for central and south Florida that went into effect in August? I think? All of the arrivals and departures are all new. All of the old departure and arrivals were discontinued. Ah, that makes sense, thanks! N62NA, of course weather and/or flow of air traffic can dictate...Jump to post
Updated to add: I just noticed a MIA-DFW flight taking the same route. Maybe the route out over Sarasota has been "discontinued" for some reason?Jump to post
I noticed on my AA flight MIA-LAX back in August that instead of heading up from MIA to Sarasota and then heading out over the Gulf of Mexico, we headed West-Southwest out of MIA to about Marco Island on the west coast of Florida and then headed out over the Gulf. Seems like AA is sticking with this...Jump to post
I just looked at an aerial map of the area and tried figuring out how and extension from the current terminus of the N train would get to LGA. I get the 2 block extension north to the Con Ed facility, but then how do you head east? Do you snake around to the east and head down 19th Avenue? Then tur...Jump to post
I suppose if the Federal government owned the airports, then yes, they would be within their authority to mandate that. But they don't own the airports. Looking to the Federal government to do "economic goods leveling" is doomed from the start. So yes, a "pretty American" soluti...Jump to post
The answer for ensuring service in these areas is ultimately a return to Regulation. If Spirit or Southwest or United or any other airline wants slots at EWR, LGA or any other slot restricted (read high yield) airport it could required to serve selected number of EAS type towns. I suppose if the Fe...Jump to post

IIRC, you only have to run the N two or three blocks to the north where you hit the NIMBYless safety of the big ConEd facility, and from there you are practically home free. Overcoming two blocks of NIMBY opposition should be possible; not without aggravation, but doable. But then how would you cro...Jump to post
There has to be a distinction made between preventive measures and punitive measures. I’m not an expert but it’s hard to imagine a crew member or passenger being civilly or criminally liable for physically preventing this kind of behavior, even if the disruptive subject finds that intervention very...Jump to post
Saw on the news today that there have been over 4,000 people who have disrupted flights this year and only ONE person has been charged with a crime. And nobody at the DOJ sees a problem here?

There are laws. They do not lead to easy enforcement. It is easy to say no interference with flight crew, but that in itself is a meaningless non-enforceable law. Jurisdictional, definitions, enforcement methods, dispute resolutions are all part of a law that works. This seems pretty clear to me: 4...Jump to post
I believe the US have a justice system in place and regardless of the motive or the mental state of the defendant, they are entitled to a fair trial, no? So I don't think the sentence they're facing will come from any a.net member. The point is out of over 4,000 of these incidents, there has only b...Jump to post

First, I think the composition on this photo is very nice. It may appear low-in-frame at first, but I think the inclusion of the tower makes this a very strong photo.

Hello all, was wondering if anyone could provide information on what domestic routes AA will be flying the 787 out of ORD this fall and winter. Will we see the 787 to LAX, PHX, LAS again?

Personally AA should just stick to its guns of offering streaming on all its aircraft (with power on all seats of course) and then reflecting having one less service by having the lower/lowest cost consistently more than its competitors.
