Going to CLE next weekend via Delta. I don't mind the arrival aboard a CRJ-900, particularly up front in the business class seats. However Delta still insists on torturing we travelers by using its regional affiliates obsolete 50-passenger CRJ-200s. On the CLE-JFK route an Endeaver CRJ-200 departs ...Jump to post
Southwest has loaded a 2x daily CLE-MKE with their latest extension this morning. How long before UA drops this? What makes you think UA will drop? It's a lot easier for UA to make money on a small market with 50 seats at a time versus 150. Also, due to the business nature of the city pair, there a...Jump to post
I can never get a handle on how pilots, some of whom earn north of 200k per year for flying maybe 80 hours per month What airline is paying this kind of money? SIGN ME UP! Not sure if you realize, but starting wages for pilots is often under 35,000 a year! Try Delta, United, American, Southwest and...Jump to post

The American Customer Service Index has been released and, surprise, the worst is not United. Not surprisingly, the worst is Spirit. Why is it a surprise the worst is not United?

Question. Do we actually read the article before claiming it "cringe worthy" or are we looking for as much attention on the topic as we can get by assigning a sensationalist title? These people were trying to get a product they didn't pay for. Can we stop bashing United now?Jump to post

An airplane like this would return travel to a lot of smaller airports within 500 miles of a hub that have lost service in recent years as the original 50-seat regional jets have become less economic to operate. And 2030 is not as far off in the future as it may sound. Of course, we need more small...Jump to post

You say Major U.S carriers but what about NK,F9 or G4? Seems that no has said yet that they are better then Norwegian . Maybe that shows something......

I have been marveling at the success of JetBlue in CLE. Their L/F for November was 89.4%. More surprising, the loads have been building steadily since summer. I'm looking forward to seeing traffic numbers for CLE-BOS. I think some of the increase must be attributable to GE moving their headquarters...Jump to post
Norwegian is less safe. Their staff are less qualified than most RJ crews in the US. I give them 24 months before their first high profile incident.

A deal to buy or lease parked Embraer 140s from American Airlines makes way too much sense as those seem to fit into its business model. For those airfields not able to handle jets, the ATR 42 would be nice as well. Why buy 140's from previous American life when if they wait a bit longer they'll be...Jump to post
I don't disagree with a word that you said. But the simple fact of the matter is cost. Having two pilots and a FA is VERY expensive, especially if you are going to only be able to spread that cost over less than fifty seats. Cutting corners in the name of profitability is no way to operate an airli...Jump to post
If UA is indeed going to operate the 777-300ER from EWR on long haul international routes, then I would think HKG and potentially NRT will be up gauged from the 772ER to the 773ER as well. Guessing that rotating SFO based crews on these flights will be fairly simple with SFO-HKG already going to 77...Jump to post
Ultimate's website is now scrubbed of any reference to CVG. One the subject of fares, if you booked CLE-EWR/MMU-CLE today departing Jan 17th and returning Jan 19th, the fare on Ultimate would be $559. The fare on United would be $1,144. EWR is 13nm closer to NYC. In this case I'm tempted to call Ul...Jump to post
Rouge is using a lot of 763s in winter on short runs. LAS, FLL, CUN, MBJ. Some of these routes have the 763 operating year round. Winglets aren't required and are actually dead weight on these short hops, as the increase in range or payload isn't necessary. If the weight of winglets on short segmen...Jump to post
I feared this would be another wealthy amateur pilot in over his head and was really hoping that it would not turn out to be the case. Turbine, single pilot, IFR is serious business.

PPL's flying jets scares me, pure and simple. Last night wasn't the worst weather I've ever flown in by any stretch, but if you don't have your s#!t together, those cheese holes can line up real fast. I agree 100%. I wouldn't have trusted flying myself around bad weather in a jet at night back when...Jump to post

The 777-200ER is a old fuel guzzler compared to the frames available now. The A330-300 took 90%, everything that is in her range. Now you can chose the 787-9 or A350-900 for the same or more range at a far lower cost or a A330-900 doing 95% at a lower cost if you do not need the full range. That ma...Jump to post

If they truly intend to add 20 new small cities you really get into marginal territory. Stuff like AMA-ORD or FWA-IAD don't count because UA* already serves Amarillo and Fort Wayne. Finding 20 new cities not already served by United and then coming up with plausible routes is not that easy. Althoug...Jump to post
The aircraft are 100% going to Republic, it's as simple as that. Republic cancelled the order because it was almost impossible (probably completely impossible) to find financing for these aircraft while in bankruptcy. That's where United comes into play.

the 0100 departure from MEX will help alleviate some of the heat issues, if only subtly. Not a good day for AM... One of Airliners.net's biggest myths is that MEX is a hot place.

Too many variables to compare them side by side. They fly at different altitudes and more then likely, along different routing. Second, the 787 isn't scheduled out for over and hour and the flight aware enroute time is completely estimated, their flight plan may not even by filed yet.Jump to post
