Isn't a big part of this that Spirit will not even check in a passenger less than 45 minutes before departure. If so it will help the airline look good, but if you've stood in line for a half-hour and you get to the counter at 44 minutes before your flight - that might really stink for passengers. ...Jump to post
Spirit had the best on-time performance among North American carriers for the second consecutive month in November, according to FlightStats. Delta came in a close second to the low-cost carrier. The weighted monthly average fell nearly 3 percentage points to 79.8 percent. https://www.businesstrave...Jump to post
Sure, but NK stock still is 3.5 times that of jetblue so... Do you know the difference between stock price and market cap? This really is a pretty funny statement Finally, thanks. I thought I'd been missing something because something so obvious hadn't been mentioned, until I saw your post. JetBlue...Jump to post
Oh God the monthly Jetblue thread with the regular jetblue fans, Europe is imminent comments, etc.. Truth is, no idea how jetblue makes money, their Cuba flights, their situation at LGB, their CASM, their perfomance in general... assets may be an explanation but it really is no surprise an investor...Jump to post

Does this mean that ba will cancel their service here too. Bit of a blow to the airport The airport cannot handle the current load of international flights specially at peak hours. Wait times at 5-6pm, can be an hour or more inside the aircract before you can even deplane, because customs is backed...Jump to post
Any chance NK will add some more international service from ORD? B6 is sitting on two unused slots in MEX, could NK snatch them? ORD/LAS-MEX would def be a goldmine... That’s definitely not the case. Check the schedule for next summer before you make a comment like that. In Mexico City, where JetBl...Jump to post

I think NK is and has always been underestimated here in a-net (who knows why theres almost no difference now between them and coach in the legacies nowadays). They are the healthiest theyve ever been. It was largely ignored in this forum, of course - but they got an amazing Q3 perfomance, their sto...Jump to post
What's wrong with having multiple airports? Many large cities have: Washington DC, NYC, London, Paris, etc. Nothing, except that the flight patterns for Santa Lucia and the current airport intersect, which means that neither can be used to full capacity. And none of those cities are in a valley 700...Jump to post
OMG people here on a-net really are d-bags eh?? SN may need to be swallowed by LH to survive, but this can be a huge opportunity for someone to start a new Brussels-based carrier. With everyone in Europe pretty much on IAG, AF/KLM or LH, competition will be diluted and you can totally base a new air...Jump to post
B6 also reduced MCO/FLL-MEX.... whats going on at MEX too much competition?Jump to post
Hopefully it does work out for TK unlike EK unfortunately. Other points mentioned is that even an IST-CUN route is in their future they want to start with service to MEX first. Also plane most likely to be used is the 787-9. Not really “unfortunate” though. EK could have flown DXB-MEX-CUN-MEX or si...Jump to post

None. Except people hate Spirit cause it's Spirit, even though they've never flown them and just heard it from someone else when they got upset they got no free water in a perfectly fine airline. Bingo, I think its just a-net though, even Spirit’s facebook and IG people mainly write good things abo...Jump to post
I don't know why I would need to be alerted to an earthquake in Alaska if I am in Missouri. This is not what this system does. I know... It is to remind us that Muslims or North Korea or Germany or Iran are going to bomb us at any second. I am all for regional alerts about floods, Amber alerts, ear...Jump to post
Frankly I think many of these airlines enjoy the sport of competing and collecting authorities like trophies whether they have room on their mantle to store them, or in this case business case to operate the flights. Yeah well B6 isnt doing so hot lately, so as to why they keep doing stuff like thi...Jump to post

* No window seat fees But this really isn't true anymore, and I think it's a clever way of pulling the wool over people's eyes. On many routes you pretty much have to buy a Business Select fare or Early Bird to not have a center seat. I'd rather have a bag fee than a no-center-seat fee. I agree, I ...Jump to post
As I’ve continued to say, expect plans on new routes to continue to be put on hold or cancelled as the pilot shortage/resignations continues. Several A380 Captains I know have been rostered in excess of 115hrs flight time for the month of October. 115 hrs/month? seriously? there isn't a single capt...Jump to post
It will also be a company making a profit for a few years with a crop of zero seniority/bottom of the pay scale new hires in a industry where time based seniority is everything. And when the labor costs inevitably go up with time, he will sell. (speed up this timeline 2x if the pilots/FAs unionize ...Jump to post
I'm sorry but slot related or not who in sane mind would fly to that bus station which is MEX? Did any of you fly to/from MEX airport in recent times? If EK had a choice and was looking for reasons not to fly somewhere, a single visit to that place would answer it. Its still waay better than the li...Jump to post
