Indeed if B6 would simply follow the rules they would not have the city on their backs.
Years of slot violations and low slot usage rightfully make them targets for enforcement action and growing ill will from community and city leaders.
JetBlue troubles continue at LGB. This time over failure to fully utilize its slot holdings as carrier employs day of week and seasonal scheduling practices falling below required slot usage percentages. Long Beach may soon start penalizing JetBlue for not complying with a new rule requiring the car...Jump to post
Comparing CX serving to TLV to IST is not a very good comparison. TLV has pent up demand from Israeli's heading East which due to the limited LY service, so they must fly on other carriers and via other hubs(IST being one). In addition, there is decent inbound religious tourism to Israel also. The q...Jump to post
Didn't LAWA masterfully eliminate the gate cap when they eliminated the project to move 6L/24R north? Something about more gates in the CTA area if they remove the west remote gates..

A comment about T-9 and Star partners.
