Do the LAX drops have anything to do with their partnership with AA?Jump to post
Skywest also has their order for 100 MRJs they could look at. Not sure when those planes are actually supposed to land next year.Jump to post
With so many 757s, I definitely think we will see some painted.Jump to post

Allegiant already flies there, or do you mean Stewart to Concord?
AA has pulled down JFK and BOS enough for the most part to allow jetBlue to join OneWorld as a connect member allowing jetBlue to sell flights on AA and BA metal across the pond and allow AA and BA to connect out of JFK and BOS, That would be interesting. Or if AA goes full in and buys jetBlue to ki...Jump to post
I think, if AS wanted to, there would be a deal to be had with AA to swap A321s for Boeings. What Boeings? This isn't a sports trade. What would AA have to offer that would compel AS to give up an aircraft that customers seem to like and management is carefully considering their best approach with?...Jump to post
If Terminal 1 is going to get rebuilt I think this is stupid to not build out T8's wing fully and allow JAL to move in as well and have the Oneworld in one house.Jump to post
Based on the picture here in the AA press release it looks like the Eagle gates are turning into larger? Or are they going to just use them more for larger jets? http://s21.q4cdn.com/616071541/files/images/PR-images/2019/02/20190205-Landside-View-HD.jpg http://news.aa.com/news/news-details/2019/Amer...Jump to post
I assume Norwegian has a crew base at DUB? What with DUB-YHM starting soon and DUB-PVD/SWF seeming to be the only truly viable transatlantic services operated by the 737s from those secondary U.S. airports, it seems far more logical to have one Irish base rather than 2 American bases. While existin...Jump to post
Aer Lingus being part of IAG - would make me think that there is already the same pricing? Feel like all it does is move the connection target points for traffic to free up seats on the targeted higher premium direct routes.Jump to post
Possibly a redirection of the airline? I am surprised that no one has gone for new marketing and updated livery. Or even a surprise with the intent to be launch customer for 797.Jump to post
The dropping of EDI and BFS also indictates that flying long haul loco in a 737 or A320 to secondary airports may well not be sustainable. EDI is supposed to be due to taxes and fees. Cuts to other non-US airports also occurred. So there definitely is a fine-line to profitability. Belfast is suppos...Jump to post
60 from jetBlue and 20 from AA. Big fleet on the market for someone to pick up. Aeromexico Connect is adding more from Air Canada so they could look for some at a great deal. I would think that charter companies would possibly love them, especially if the tv's and all will be left in place. Think th...Jump to post
I googled it and was able to read the entire article from the Wall Street journal that was posted. Said more info will be released in the coming weeks. It is not the same article from post 2. I cannot imagine a rebuild like LGA. I would assume three terminals basically. 1 to 4 will be demolished and...Jump to post
Norwegian will be down to three destinations soon at SWF:
Siting taxes as the cause and sure Brexit is throwing them lots of curve balls.

Enough with the special schemes, what JetBlue needs to do is hurry up with the restyled interiors and sharklet installations! The decision was made not to continue with adding sharklets to the 320s Strange decision considering the rising costs of JETA1.. I am pretty sure the cost to modify the wing...Jump to post
I too wondered about the joint venture and how much AA has a say in where BA goes next. Also is there a limit to the joint venture and how much AA and BA can share in destinations/flights? I am also guessing that AA can run connections through PIT and BNA and anywhere else?Jump to post
G4 also made a deal to use easyJet's orange color on the planes they ordered direct from Airbus. Wonder if some funneling of use aircraft maybe sourced there too.Jump to post
Maybe G4 can get a hold of some of the AA A320s with all AA has on order.Jump to post

HPN would not work with seat limits per hour for any flights of this sort.
It amazes me now that the other airlines use small enough aircraft and time it right so that jetBlue can bring in A320s.
I would love to know the actual demographics of people using the Norwegian flights.

I would think the Port Authority could be his best friend after what he did with jetBlue at JFK - Come build your airline at SWF and we will help you.Jump to post
From the article: "This is a story of firsts and lasts. Cathay Pacific went on to own and operate the original prototype Boeing 777-200 – B-HNL, which retires this year after 18 years of service. On retirement, she will take her place in the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field – fittingly the same...Jump to post
I would think that there is a deal to be had with AA and United if United really wants back in. With the rebuilding of ORD and gate constraints there I am sure United could offer something there. Though I would think that United would want in to compete against AA on all the routes they add at JFK. ...Jump to post
When the Port Authority took over SWF there was many discussions about how it was going to expand the NY market. Yes a good chunk of the talk was marketing spin, but still. One of the items pointed out at the time was that SWF was just above the congested NYC airspace. It's landing and takeoffs are ...Jump to post

I have not read the 1st quarter report. I can not imagine that Southwest doesn't want these aircraft in service for the summer season. It was my understanding that with the discontinuations of the 300 series spare aircraft were less and the flight schedules adjusted to make up for the loss associate...Jump to post
In this day and age of boring paint, I honestly would not be surprised to see the globe stretched out or basically the Ted paint scheme with a blue color.Jump to post
It's all about the pricing. Delta and airTran both flew SWF-ATL and both I believe had pretty good loads. airTran stayed until jetBlue came in and began Florida. Then airTran left and soon did Delta's ATL. I am surprised though that AA did not trade the PHL flights to CLT or ORD with the retirement ...Jump to post
