As a side note, when booking STL-Europe on AA, I mostly get connections through CLT or PHL, with some places (like CDG, LHR, or BCN) going through ORD. I prefer ORD when I can because I can take a 787 over an A330. Curious why you like the 787 over the A330. Are you usually traveling alone or with ...Jump to post

Just saw this posted on Twitter. Swift runs tons of pro and college sports charters as well as as vacation charters. Swift acquired EA part 2. I guess this just gives them some more cash? Thoughts?
I am SHOCKED there is no SFO-SGN. I would think that could EASILY be done 5x weekly. I just HATE the super long connections to get there. Takes FOR-E-V-E-R!Jump to post

It wouldn't pay for the project, but putting a re-do of Concourse on HGTV would be really neat, fun and interesting.
Watching the meeting from yesterday. More opening T2 to T1 talk. Sounds like it still would take Southwest opening more gates but if they do it would open all the way so you could clear security from T1 if your flight was out of one of the old D gates and cut down on your walk. They are adding a fa...Jump to post
Chancellor's new flight. Doesn't the German Air Force have a backup plane so she didn't have to fly on a regular IB flight? Yes, they have an identical back up aircraft, another A343, that was even flown into Cologne last night to pick her up. Problem was duty time for both crews. After landing in ...Jump to post
BLV is looking to expand. 2 new gates. $30 million dollars. Start next Fall and it would take 3 years. Most interesting part to me is the expansion looks to include INTL baggage claim. So it makes me wonder if they have had talks to add a flight to Mexico or the Caribbean. Personally, I want the ai...Jump to post

Looks like Chancellor Merkel's A343 had some issues. Had to divert to CGN
Looking at FR24 most of the WW flights that were scheduled to leave already from KEF show "unknown". Wonder if that is a sign they are down for good?
Google translate :rotfl: "The shit wing is stuck in the wall, it does not happen," says a witness. Side note, wonder if this plane was under tow into the gate?

On 20th November, an Aeroflot 738, VP-BCG operating flight SU 2112 to ATH hit a man on its takeoff roll. The a/c flew normally to ATH, as they did not see the man as it took place under darkness.

Unpopular opinion I’m sure....but I loved this livery. Being born in 1992 and growing up in Denver, it’s just the United I remember. Back when they had happy meals for kids on board!

This post led to me learning that the official name of the country is 2 words. Had no idea. At one time, it was. That isn't the case today though.

I’m optimistic about this and the viability of the entire operation after they cut 5 US markets in a week that were supposedly doing “very well.” Did you even look at the loads WW had at JFK, DFW, CLE, CVG and STL?

This is definitely a huge set back for STL. I really feel terrible for the RouteDev team. This stings horribly. Will be very difficult to get another TATL to enter the STL market again.
