How viable will the Houston energy sector will be down the road as the world moves away from the use of fossil fuels? With as great of progress we're doing to move from fossil fuels, it will still be decades or even a century before we are totally done with them. Oil notwithstanding Houston has a d...Jump to post
As a soon to be former CSA at WN, the MAX grounding is killing us (non mechanics) the most. The bad timing with Spring Break made it even harder with all flights at my station being full. My Cohearts fought valiantly and with Spring Break all but over the light at the end of the tunnel can be seen. ...Jump to post

The fact is, despite some on this site's ridiculous protests to the contrary: the market is extremely competitive, with 3 global legacy carriers + 1 regional legacy carrier, a nationwide LCC, a large east coast and transcon LCC, a large Hawaiian carrier, and two large ULCCs. There's not many niches...Jump to post

Can a ULCC provide good quality? Absolutely! However, it requires investing some of those profits to keep the product good. From what I see, most of the current ULCC's could care less about a quality product. Spirit however seems to be doing something about it. I am hearing their on time performanc...Jump to post

My dad was a flight sim tech for a major US cargo airline. He'd take me and my brother to fly the simulators when ever we had the chance as kids.

With EWR being added, Denver is now the only Star Hub with no TK service. Any chance of TK heading that way? Might be a better option than Emirates IMHO.

One wonders if JetBlue enters TATL and is su cessful at it, how long will WN sit by. WN is not an airline known for emulating the sides of others.

New Orleans has mostly back office operations for energy companies at this time. They also have lots of offshore supply companies that really don't need to send employees to Europe very often. New Orleans is also the poorest city in the top 50 US metros, so their O/D traffic for Europe isn't up the...Jump to post
