RE: Pan Am 103. Twenty Six Years Ago At Lockerbie.

This tragedy will always stick in my mind. Especially the date, as I was deeply saddened by this event. May those who perished onboard, and on the ground, rest in peace. This event showed the flaws in security all around us, and we suffered a much more horrific even on 9/11/01. Those who did perish ...

RE: Frontier Airlines

Hi MSYtristar, I agree with mariner on this one. With the rapid retirement of the remaining 737's, I would bet that it is the cause of some service cuts. Frontier announced some additional service to specific cities that had a reduction in flights in FEB/MAR. I will do a little research to see if I ...

RE: More A380 Pictures

I really dont like the looks of it. I mean, it does look a little too big to fly. I guess we shall see. I would not want to be the one loading it!

RE: Non-Rev?

So does that mean that Frequent Flyer travel is not considered a form of non-rev? Are they somehow making money off of you for that particular trip?

I would classify that as positive space. Good point though!

Do you work for an airline? Or do you know someone who gets buddy passes? That is the only way you can non-rev. If you do work for an airline, there are several ways to do it. It also depends on which airline you work for too. Usually you list yourself on a flight. Listing is putting your name on th...

What would you rate the movie on from a 1-10? 10 being the best of the best. I rented a movie called Air Marshall. It was awful. I literally turned it off halfway through, as ...

Glad to see they are still flying. It brings back memories of my childhood, and it is cool to hear the name in the industry. I wish them the best of luck, and I hope they are here to stay!

RE: 727 Converted To Home.

Yeah, some guy has a 727 as a house outside of Hillsboro Oregon. It was very interesting to see how they moved the aircraft from the airport to the new spot where he wanted it set at. I am not sure how the project is going, but I understood he was removing everything from the cockpit. If I had an ai...

RE: Would A US-HP Merger/partner Be More Feasible

I think <acronym title="America West Airlines (USA)">HP</acronym> and US would be a disaster at this point. The costs alone would be mind boggling. Employee relations would become worse, as seniority, and benefits would be a source of problems. Then comes the conversion of aircraft. Painting, and ca...

RE: What If You Were In Control US Or UA

I would shed some weight. Start back at the basics, and simplify the fleet. The airlines are still eating too many carb dinners, when they should be going Low Carb!!!

Alright, I guess I am hungry.. (Off to the refrigerator!!)

RE: Which Is The Hardest Landing Airport?

I flew into St. George, Utah a few times. The approach end of the runway is on a sheer cliff. I always held on tight, and held my breath on that approach. Especially when the pilot left the curtains open, and you could see the white knuckles on the yoke. Of course that was on the old Fairchild Metro...
