RE: Southwest Hits The Brakes On Growth

Nice to see no changes listed for <acronym title="Tulsa - International (Municipal) (TUL / KTUL), USA - Oklahoma">TUL</acronym>. I'm hoping that service stays consistent as the Wright Amendment restrictions are lifted over the next few years. I have to say I'd be surprised to see 733's go over 735's...

RE: Why AA Won't Order Boeing (for Now).

This is the same rhetoric that comes out everytime that contracts come due for negotiation. One side says "gimme more, gimme more!" and the other claims to not have the money. That's why it's called negotiation. Hopefully both sides are smart enough to meet in the middle at a level that works for bo...

RE: WN To Cut BWI-LAX/OAK, PHL-LAX/OAK?

I expect WN to continue to do what they do best. Mix and match loads through direct flights rather than longer nonstops. It's how they've gotten where they are.

RE: XJet - New Stations?

IND should be considered at some point, the new midfield terminal is opening next year and will have plenty of capacity available compared to the current terminal. It could make a nice base for <acronym title="Cambodia International Airlines">XE</acronym> similar in scope to <acronym title="Albuquer...

RE: Pilots Vote 'no Confidence' In NWA Execs

This is nothing more than posturing before contract negotiations start, and unfortunately status quo. This round of talks between the lagacies and the unions will be really interesting to watch! Pension and retirement benefits will be as much an issue as pay, and health care costs. The unions IMO kn...

RE: NW And The 748i And 748f

If <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym> buys the 748F, it would stand to reason that they would buy the 748i as well. There is a place in <acronym title="Northwest Airlines (USA)">NW</acronym>'s future for an aircraft to replace the 744 as a pax carrier and the 748i would be a grea...

RE: UA And The 748i

They are friendly with Airbus, why not 388's? I don't think either is likely for UA.

RE: AA 787 Order In 2009, A Pilot's Opinion

As has been stated before, <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> has large quantities of aircraft that will be reaching retirement in the next 10 years or so. They need to get the orders placed soon to secure slots, or most likely firm up slots that Boeing is holding for them as a pr...

RE: 62 737 UFO Order: Single Order For 739ER

I'll cast my vote that these frames are for <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> as 752 replacements. With <acronym title="Federal Express (USA)">FX</acronym> actively looking to add more 752 aircraft it would make sense that a major player like <acronym title="American Airlines (US...
