Re: Delta Employee Uses Vulgarities Towards Customer @ PDX

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...

Re: American Airlines Network Thread 2018

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...

I don't see TLV coming back until they settle the TWA lawsuit. I believe the Israeli courts still assert that AA still owes the workers money. Unless that has been settled, any AA property can be seized, sold and used for payment.
