Re: 2 Fired United FAs awarded $800k+ (Possibly 1.5mil) From Jury

This is exactly when there is no morale at UA. These FAs did the service. I don't think an apron is necessary to pour drinks. It seems like a witch hunt to get rid of senior FAs. Something similar at TWA in 1987. A FA with 25 years was fired for taking 4 cup cartons of milk and a used Ambassador Cla...

Re: Emirates Flight Attendant Jumps From Aircraft in Apparent Suicide Attempt

This article states that there may have been an argument (verbal exchange) with a colleague: http://www.monitor.co.ug/News/National/Emirates-crew-staff-jumps-off-plane-Entebbe-Airport/688334-4341750-13vv72az/index.html Another article says the FA is Bulgarian. The article makes it sound like she wa...

Re: AA hiring flight attendants for LIM and EZE

One of the most unusual foreign Flight Attendant bases if JAL's London base for it flights from Tokyo to London. Flew a 77W from Haneda to London Heathrow and it must have had three European FA's. One, Carolina, commutes to London from Spain for her flights to Japan. PA back in the 1970's had a Lon...

Re: How did PanAm feed its network?

This was the main reason they bought National. They wanted domestic feed. They had agreements with smaller airlines to feed them over the years. Empire and Allegheny were some of the feeders.

Re: Dog killed onboard United Airlines flight (in cabin)

The bins have an opening at the very top when closed. Could the dog have been crushed by bags during take off or landing?

Re: Pan am long haul operations from Miami 1980-1991

It has just came to my mind tha accident in los Rodeos . It was a Klm n a PanAm, no? What was doing there that PanAm? It was a charter flight from LAX to Las Palmas via JFK. They diverted to Tenerife after a bomb scare at the Las Palmas Airport. The passengers were boarding a Med cruise in Las Palm...

Re: Pan am long haul operations from Miami 1980-1991

From the October 27, 1991 timetable:

PA134 MIA-CDG
PA441 MIA-GIG-GRU and MIA-GRU-GIG
PA443 MIA-CCS-REC
PA451 MIA-GRU-GIG
PA453 MIA-EZE-SCL

Interestingly, PA was still flying from JFK to GRU & GIG nonstop.

Re: Pushing E175 to 4 hours 41 minutes block time

I know for a fact a company based in Madison has a 100's of employees that travel every week for business across the country. They currently primarily use Delta but United is making a big push to win the business. Note the mainline service added between MSN and ORD the last couple years. On a perso...

Re: Mesa Airlines Beech 1900 DFW Ops Question

So what exactly was the difference between Air Midwest flights and Mesa flights? It was similar to the way Republic used to have Republic, Chautauqua, and Shuttle America. They used different names for different operations, but they were all basically Mesa. Freedom Air flew the Delta Connection fly...

Re: Mesa Airlines Beech 1900 DFW Ops Question

I flew Air Midwest from Kansas City to Columbia, MO, between 2006 and 2008. I usually bought my ticket from US Airways. In about 2007 the codeshare deal was announced with Midwest. I often flew BOS-MCI-COU. The Air Midwest flights left from a lower level gate area in Terminal A in MCI. The cabins we...
