Really hope this pans out! Getting there is such a pain now from the states. Have flown VN on a few domestic flights and loved them. Our daughter was adopted from Vietnam and we love the people, culture and of course the amazing food! Looking forward to an STL-LAX-SGN! Last time we went we had to ro...Jump to post
I just head on the ABC News radio top of the hour report, the victim has died from their wounds and was a WN employee. Prayers going out.Jump to post
He was replaced by CFO. Once the US elections are over not sure what EA has left to do. Much of its Cuba charter business has evaporated, and has not been able to excecute on its plans to establish relations with foreign airlines serving MIA with feeder flights, or establish its own schedule servic...Jump to post
Wow. Surprised to read this.
I found the last poll question the best. "Would you attend a wedding reception at Lambert?" Ha! I hope this works out but unsure it would be a success. Maybe 2x weekly? But since 57% of the traffic at STL in 2015 was on WN, and just about 20% was AA, I don't know.... It is obvious that Sla...Jump to post
Had NO clue they were being built in CHS. Thought that all happened in Washington... Learn something new every single day. ThanksJump to post
Here is one that is headed over to either HAN or SGN
Was looking up my flight tomorrow and saw HVN98 (VN-A868) flying across Wisconsin. Looks like she originated in CHS and might be on her delivery flight. What is done to the 787 in CHS? Just curious. That is a long flight if they did CHS-HAN (7550 NM) or CHS-SGN (8161 NM) would assume that she will h...Jump to post
Very glad to see that this has finally started to unfold. It will be VERY nice to not have more than one connection for us to get to SGN anymore. Usually we have to go STL/SFO/ICN/SGN or even add DEN into that mix! STL-LAX-SGN will be great!!!Jump to post
Southeast Louisiana @ Oklahoma State
If that tail number is right, here is the Ravn Alaska plane based off the FAA serial number .
Looks like she spent her early life over in SE Asia.
Sadly, five perish in this crash. Looks like 7H 3190 on 8/31/16. Not sure of the registration on the 208. Hageland (dba Ravn) has had a bad go in the past 4 years with crashes. I remember watching the TV show "Flying Wild Alaska" when Era Alaska was featured as was Hageland. Now all under ...Jump to post
That was an event for sure. After we pushed, 20 mins waiting to taxi out. Once we did, we ended up on the taxiway for 55 minutes shutdown before they re-routed us out. Seems like the flights that suffered the most were those heading North. I have to say the entire flight crew did a great job keeping...Jump to post
Some flights are getting re-routes. The rest are like us. Shut down or SET so they can shuffle planes around. Pretty messy.Jump to post
Sitting on the taxiway right now engines shutdown on WN1495 to STL. Seems that all West and North departures are shutdown due to weather. Some planes I am hearing on live atc have been on the ground for almost three hours and some not able to return to a gate. Any other airports in the NE as slammed...Jump to post
My personal wish list for WN out of STL would be: BDL PVD BUR CUN MEX PVR ONT But STL is one of those markets that seem to gain a few, lose a few with WN but who knows? Those 2 new gates on D won't sit idle for too long. I see your wishes and mine are similar! I could see CUN being a seasonal add. ...Jump to post
Been down, now form nearly 1:30. Discovered it trying to check in for my flights tomorrow from MCI-STL. According to their Twitter, agents are issuing hand written boarding passes (like the good old days). Obviously delayed flights are occurring. Looking at the schedules around 2 hours on average. W...Jump to post
I would love to see the return of a London flight to STL. Realistically, I would be very surprised to see it happen though. I went back and found that KMOV ran an identical article three years ago, (link no longer works) but here is the thread. viewtopic.php?t=562391 We all got a laugh when the airp...Jump to post
I'm no fan of Star Wars...dumbest thing ever; however, love the livery. Anything that stands out, I tend to like. Breaks up the monotony. Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but not sure "dumbest thing ever" would be accurate since the movie franchise has grossed $6.5 billion. I o...Jump to post
There is the original thread that has been going since the crash.
Probably easier to consolidate over there versus have multiple discussions on the same topic.

Looks like they have found the wreckage.
I travel to TUL once every month or so. Lived there for 13 years and the numbers of flights available from STL are half of what they used to be. Used to have options all day, nonstop. Now a late morning to Tulsa and a late flight home makes it tough to get there. Found the same with OKC too.Jump to post
