I think this is what happened, which makes me side with the passenger: 1. He is booked on DL HNL-LAX-PDX. 2. He checks in at HNL and gives DL his bag. 3. For some reason (delay, overbooked) DL bumps him and rebooks him on DL HNL-SEA-PDX. 4. For some reason (delay, overbooked) DL rebooks him on HA H...Jump to post
Will AA ever go back to TLV? If so, which hub would it be launched from? PHL but I suspect that it will be a 2019 add as by then it will be a bit more defined what is happening with the 333s and there are a few other higher priority adds that only consume a single aircraft. What about DFW-TLV? I do...Jump to post

Precisely. The Hawaii market can be a low yielding proposition with the intense competition. They may have been smart not to fly there and employ their assets more profitably on other, higher yielding routes. HA did fly ONT-HNL with a 767 in the past. Not sure why it didn’t work since that is still...Jump to post

As I recall, LA officials agreed to a cap on gate and hardstand positions at LAX, as part of the agreement to permit TBIT to be built. Eastward expansion may be of interest to some of the carriers, but the agreement with the neighborhoods will have to be revised to allow it to happen. AFAIK, the re...Jump to post

According to NBC nightly news two brothers were on two different flights to Tokyo (I am assuming UA & ANA) and both got on the same flight That's certainly added a little spice to the mix.

There will never be a relief airport in the LAX basin. There is way too much money driving keeping the facility right where it is. Those forces are why the 'green line' does not run to the airport, but instead is south and stops over a mile away. This way you have to pay for a ride to the airport; ...Jump to post
While I don't think LAX is going far enough (or fast enough), the major issues are being addressed. I 5-10 years, they will need to look at extending the Sepulveda tunnel or something similar, and likely in that same time frame there will be pressure to address the uninhabitable zone between the 11...Jump to post

So here's my question. When a human has a peanut allergy all peanuts are removed from catering and announcements are made in the gate areas that anyone who has peanuts to please not bring them on board. So in this case a human trumps an allergy. However, now we're seeing a passenger with a pet alle...Jump to post
She should not be removed. Taking a pet on a plane should be a privilege, not a right. If anyone is disrupted by a pet, it should be the pet owner that should be removed, not the person suffering as a result of the pet being on the plane. Alternatively, pets should be carried in the baggage hold, l...Jump to post

Some form of free personal entertainment is important. Wifi, IFE, or power. None of the three, window seat and book. I would rather have seat-back IFE over free WiFi content.

I think, even with assuming environmental approvals, the major problem with an offshore Long Beach airport is that there is no place to put it. With the three oil islands and the large container shipping traffic there is just no place to put 2+ miles of runway and taxi space in the Long Beach ocean ...Jump to post
I lived right off the 57 and yes I would regularly make it to ONT in 30 minutes or less. In case you don't know freeway speeds are fast in So cal.

ONT is mostly concerned with being able to serve the local catchment area and drive an economic engine for the region. No one is trying to make anyone from Los Angeles drive to ONT to catch a plane.

The market of Los Angeles is not in Ontario. The market of Ontario is not in Los Angeles. Apples to oranges.

This might be the most informative part of the incident. There were 121 passengers on the American flight (757, JFK-DUB) and nine crew members.

Go for it, then. Just let us know which airport that might be as well as how the market size compares to LGB. Dozens of cities , on the east coast.

I don't see any way that ONT can realistically be offered as an LGB alternative. A whole new and different market, maybe, but not an alternative.
