RE: Skybus A/C In CMH

The Skybus website lists 6 features of their service: 1) Low fares - With a new young workforce, employee costs will be low, but how will they pay for their new fleet of 65 A319s? And presumably they don't have fuel prices hedged already. Given that I just flew home for Christmas and paid $44 less t...

RE: San Diego's Aviation Future Screwed

As long as we set a requirement set that allows no possible candidate sites, there will be no new airport. Mirimar has a l...

Last night I got to chat with someone involved in the effort to defeat the Miramar proposal. What an airhead.

The A380 is way more at risk of being an "Edsel" in the market. Airbus as a company needs to get better control over the words that come...
