Oh you speak for every liberal in SEA...OK. Flight shaming would be the most dramatic in Seattle where the woke liberals and socialists love their Alaska. What would they do?

Yeah I don't get the RJ7 thing and I've yet to hear from anyone in marketing as to why this is. It could be operationally due to E75 movement among carriers and mtc but given the scope of the operation, you'd think they'd find somewhere else to drop in the RJ7. Strange. And not a good look. The RJ7 ...Jump to post

DL SkyClub was a minimal investment in a space that was originally built as the west half of Continental's massive President's Club. When DIA finally opened, the entire west side was walled off and never used. It is now a USO and a DL SC. Perhaps DL moves back to C and reopens the space above the C ...Jump to post
I have a hard time viewing this UA/DIA document and tentative agreement other than a pipe dream. For the life of me, I don't see how on earth this is approved - and if it is, how WN, F9 and maybe even other airlines sue.

I'm sorry but I can't help you. You think Frontier utilizes a gate with 2 flights a week? They have a high daily gate usage. You clearly have no idea how F9's business model works or how they utilize DIA. So because of your thinking, F9 shouldn't get any more gates? Sure I guess if you want to fly t...Jump to post

So because of your thinking, F9 shouldn't get any more gates? F9's poor decision making isn't UA, WN, or DEN's problem. Who's to say they won't pull down flights again? They certainly might, but that is not a reason to not give them gates. If they don't use them they will lose them... Same as for UA...Jump to post

Why would they want them after cutting so many flights at DEN?
Exactly Frontier abandon Denver and now they want back?
The fleet was originally operated by Evergreen, which ironically owned Pinal Air Park, until shortly before its demise.

With the holidays at hand, 2 of the Boeing Dreamlifters made a trip to Marana/Pinal Air Park outside Tucson on Christmas Eve. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/GTI4366/history/20191224/1830Z/KCHS/KMZJ https://flightaware.com/live/flight/GTI4336/history/20191224/1633Z/KPHX/KMZJ Note the second flig...Jump to post
LOL. Too good! At least one bag belt broke at SEA, coupled with high levels of absenteeism among rampers. This caused a cascade effect where aircraft waiting for or unloading bags took longer, meaning they pushed late, and inbounds had to hold short of the gate at an already gate-constrained operati...Jump to post

More GE at Boeing long term is bad. Just look at track record of Harry & Jim.
Short term, David might work to calm everything down.
But this company needs to rid itself of the GE/McD influence. Badly.
This announcement sadly, and especially the absurd comments from Greg that they can't set schedules because of the holidays, only affirms more my opinion that this launch is up there with so many over the past decade of failed brands: Western, People, Eastern. Greg is a good man though so I don't ex...Jump to post
Odd. I live there and have 119 segments this year. I find your description absurd, honestly.

DL also keeps an unsual number of spares when compared to other fleet types I've been told.

One, if the not the single biggest, reason for the 321NEO order over Boeing was the P&W contract work. Makes me wonder why they went with all the various types they currently had... delivery slots? Opportunistic purchases? They've been shrewd in a lot of their deals, no doubt, but increasing fle...Jump to post
GEG market, which includes Coeur d'Alene and Sandpoint, Idaho, has been on fire the last two years. This is a big get.

But the brakes on the 321NEO at DAL - at least as a trans-Atlantic option.

The AS 738/739 fleet is deplorable on the inside. The Recaro slimlines are terribly uncomfortable for anything over 90-120 minutes and are a first-generation slimline.

That's quite the indictment on the sanctity of the operation... Alaska views growth in number of seats available not number of aircraft. They can park the entire airbus fleet, replace the 737-700 and older 737-900 and 800 with new max, and then order 100-150 E175,E195 at horizon and call that growth...Jump to post
Compass got used and abused but they were nothing but an operational laggard within DAL. And customer numbers told the same story.

319/320 and 220 have higher net promoter scores than the 717's. Delta wants consistent, best product on mainline out west. Also part of why Compass is getting pushed off property.

No. Not all 732's went to CO Lite. The difference in the 2 configurations was Frontier vs People. Continental didn't rearrange any of the seating or galleys. Except I think People's 732 fleet may not have been entirely reconfigured for F class by the time of the merger.Jump to post
F9 will not acquire any older gen A320's going forward. In fact the only one's staying on property will be Sharklets. Everything is leaving at lease expiration. F9 is planning a future on NEO's.
