FAKE NEWS! But seriously, as a DEN native and as someone who loves DEN as an airport, I would never say it has the best food in the US. At least in the west, I think SFO is best, or LAX TBIT, with PDX being second. DEN Concourse C has been revamped to have some good offerings, but B and A are still...Jump to post
Perhaps someone might post who the hell 3M are when they're at home, especially since the link requires a login. Its a Portuguese airline that operates ATRs on behalf of TAP Portugal. They had some A310s in the past. I'm presuming that they want to do some charter flying again, possibly on behalf o...Jump to post
Well, one could also assume that 3M stands for the Minnesota Mining & Manufacturing Company and they're looking to replacing their company jet fleet which they're using for flights to the Caribbean. That was my first assumption! I guess a couple of us still remember the airline Silver descended...Jump to post
Interesting reactions so far.
The new location on Beacon Hill Road is at one on the SXM airport car-rental agencies. They catch many more take-offs and landings with all-around better photography then the Sunset Grill location did.
But why would a.net folks be interested in that?
"HSV-DEN on an E145 shows up as “inappropriate” because Huntsville is large enough to be in the “small hub” category.

"The Carribbean" is a relatively large place. It would seem location popularity and runway length might be better determiners of which aircraft to use. For instance, SXM already receives AA and DL 757s and B6 321s an well as AF 343s, TUI 788s, and KL 332s. Their runway is just over 7000 fe...Jump to post
No one *loves* Insel Air as its reviews show - chronically delayed flights; deferred aircraft maintenance; even stale food served to passengers.

Off the top of my head, I'd say that since WS is eating AC's lunch in Victoria, AC need to do something different.

The location is hardly an excuse, when you have a McDonalds on the other side of the road.

No they aren't going to repaint a 747 in a former livery for old times sake. As for the final 747 flight my guess is something that hits all the domestic hubs.

It was so successful, it was removed from the market. A clearer answer would be that "Tango" went from a free-standing carrier to class of service within Air Canada mainline.
