Really wonder why? No advance seat assignments, cattle car "get in numerical order" boarding, no IFE … silly tacky acting crews .. .ugly livery ... so why ? JetBlue is vastly superior. And more professional. The 77,000 people who took the survey seem to disagree with you. Those are probab...Jump to post
Interesting. Thank you. I enjoyed watching it. Does that mean that at this point there are no more propeller aircraft at American Eagle? I have never been on a Dash-8 but I'm sure it was a nice airplane to fly on. Not only on American Eagle, but also on United Express and Delta Connection. End of a...Jump to post

Did you go to the gift store? They used to have the best vintage stuff there and cheap. I bought a Western Airlines cup & saucer for $3. The gift store used to be inside part of an L-1011.Jump to post

Pan Am briefly flew 737's between LAX and SAN. Braniff DID allow passengers to fly just LAX to SFO because I took the flight a couple of different times just to fly Braniff. The flight originated in Ecuador and then nonstop to LAX and on to SFO. Pan Am didn't fly the 737 until deregulation and Bran...Jump to post

DL last flew JFK-NRT on the 744, and cut it as they started dismantling connecting traffic out of NRT. Am prepared to be wrong here but haven't DL operated JFK-NRT more recently with a 777?

I remember flying STL-PIT on a US Airways DC-9 in 2000. The Captain retired when we landed in Pittsburgh. His family was onboard. The son passed out donuts to all the passengers. We got a water cannon solute on arrival. There was a group of flight attendant trainees onboard doing a training flight.Jump to post
I think if FSDan listed the destinations and frequencies of those 93 CR2 flights (hint!) we would see that they are not all going to be upgauged to CR9/E75. In a few instances it's going to be CR2 or nothing - at the loss of some destinations from the network entirely. DTW-CIU (Sault Ste Marie, pop...Jump to post
This 757-300 was almost shot down during the Mombassa terrorist attack on November 28, 2002. It was operating Arkia 582 Mombassa - Tel Aviv.

It's amazing how some airlines have such bad luck in certain cities; ie. TWA in FCO. Comair and Endeavor. Not even remotely the same airline. All they had in common is the mainline partner they were flying for. Correct but to the public it's still Delta regardless of the DCI carrier. Comair killed ...Jump to post
I think AA has the worst problem right now looking uniformed. You have FAs that are wearing clothes they purchased themselves and uniforms from both AA & UA. I've recently seen AA FAs were uniform pieces that were discontinued in 1998. Mgmt really needs to figure out how to provide a nontoxic un...Jump to post
Did AA take over the routes to CDG, FRA, and LHR after 1991? I think UA took over some international routes after 1991. United picked up Pan Am's South American routes when they shut down in 1991. (American got Eastern's routes, which originally were Braniff's). They maintained a hub in Miami for a...Jump to post
Continental was one of the first airlines that merged First & Business into one cabin, BusinessFirst in 1992. TWA followed in 1995 with Trans World One.Jump to post
For an example lets say a DFW-HKG trip is worth 30 hours of pay total. Even at a new hire rate of $27/hr and paying $200 for the trip, the FA would still make about $600 for the trip.Jump to post
Eastern's pay scale was the highest of all airlines. Patently, false. As part of the buy-out, the pilots took a 20% pay cut. GF Was there ever a time when EA paid more than DL? I thought the pay gap between DL and other airlines was even higher back then. Delta has always paid high to keep the unio...Jump to post
