First cancellation seems to be Air Force One flight to Poland. Mar-a-lago needs protection. With the current track it will take a direct hit as a Cat4 storm. What is Trump going to do to "protect" the resort? This should be good! What does Trump have to do with Mar a Largo? He's had to di...Jump to post
Let the exodus begin https://i.imgur.com/GTYBXnQ.png That’s pretty cool. What's sad about hurricane planning and evacuations is when airlines / flight schools / private owners move their planes out of the way, only to have the storm shift and THEN head directly for where they sent their fleets!

The noise footprint of a CRJ 900 is probably one of the quieter commercial jets operating in and out of LGB right now...
I wonder if AA is just going to pony up the $$ for the fine since they are the ones who set the schedule and have schedule/operational control over what YV does.
I don’t understand the fixation on seat back IFE that many people have on this forum. Wouldn’t it be simpler to have in seat power in all seats and bring your own device? No, it is not. It's infinitely easier to use built-in IFE rather than fiddle with your own device, worry about digging your char...Jump to post
This comes as quite the shock. The Medallion Foundation, which helps smaller airlines and offer "above and beyond" training programs to pilots in Alaska, will be closing down in September due to reduction in funding from the FAA and apparently some new language that requires they be more o...Jump to post
My understanding is that there is some sort of gentlemen’s agreement between UA and HA that keeps them from starting GUM in exchange for UA staying out of the Hawaiian inter island market. Maybe someone has more insight. 77H Unfortunately that would garner the interest of the U.S. Department of Jus...Jump to post

I wonder how many pre-HP US A320s/A319s are around.. they all *used* to have power until Dougie ripped them all out (or was that Scott K?). And had actual legroom. And you felt like you weren't sitting on a park bench.Jump to post
I believe that Alaska was able to renegotiate the leases to be more in line with Alaska's credit rating. Regarding the Airbus, I'm starting to think there's going to be a long term home for them with the A319s and A321neos. Alaska has been using NEO on some interesting runs lately, where the perform...Jump to post
except foreign aircraft aren't supposed to do charters within the US... had a huge huge blow-up with Air Canada about this years ago when they flew some hockey teams to the States, and then to another US point. Almost *every* US Airline complained to the DOT about it.Jump to post
I am SO not feeding the trolls, but since when was JetBlue's performance actually good? Not sure I've ever heard of JetBlue being on time, and not being a basher, but I think the last on-time JetBlue flight I had was from SJU to FLL years ago. Everything else has been 20-45 mins late.

I guess a better question is- are these carve-outs TRUE meals or do they just get to pick something from the Buy on Board catalogue/offerings.

Re: NH and F. The wealthy Asian traffic has rebounded in Hawai'i. There *is* demand for a non-Y/non-cattle class product and I believe NH is doing their best to capture and own that market.

Where does the report say the radios weren't working? The pilots were talking to ATC... it was ::: here ::: on this thread where it was speculated the radios were fried.
They didn't declare an emergency, just said they were coming back.
EYW needs to extend that runway to accommodate flights to YYZ. Why? There's already service to EWR and ORD. I would think YYZ is possible using the existing runway. The locals won't support expansion of the runway. The locals b*tched to the heavens about "all that noise" when Delta brough...Jump to post
Gosh I bet those up in Juneau and much of Alaska are salivating at the thought of using an airport they can pop in and out of quickly such as PAE, as Washington state is such a large part of their social and resource chain. Pop into PAE for a day or two. Reconnect with associates, family, and other...Jump to post
I'm not sure we can use a Sabre or GDS inventory to really accurately tell you how busy or full a flight is. Some airlines like Alaska & United, will reopen a lot of buckets in their matrix to keep certain fares open. I've been on a few flights with almost every bucket open/showing 9, yet the fl...Jump to post
They apparently had no clue that it’s a Customs’ law in probably every country that you have to pick up your bag when you first enter the country and clear Customs with it. Not necessarily true. I've connected in NRT multiple times and unless anything has changed since 2006, I've never had to do th...Jump to post
But for Air Italy to go public with this, they very well could have had an agreement with AA for AOG/parts. That's normal in the airline business. And its normal for competitors to "help" eachother. Otherwise, you'd be forced to keep spare parts and AMT/A&P/Inspectors at ALL of your st...Jump to post
I kind of think in a way the market has spoken to Alaska. People want to go nonstop from PAE and not connect in PDX unless it is to get home to PAE during a weather or maintenance misconnect. Sure PDX is a convenient plus option as an alternative to the hourly shuttle at SEA for granola Northwester...Jump to post
Alaska could also axe the 9pm PAE-PDX and 7amish PDX-PAE flight without causing uproar. Well it might piss off 2 or 3 passengers. Are the load factors on those flights low? Those 2 are by far the weakest. I don't even want to publicly disclose loads, but uh, yeah. I'm surprised they just don't canc...Jump to post
And did a few mins of research about WN's connecting flights.

Unfortunately its hard to really compare AS and WN. On all these intra-CA flights, a large chunk, if not majority, are continuing legs. Most of Alaska's flights are point-to-point, or link to a hub. SNA-SMF on WN may continue to PDX, GEG, SLC, etc. SMF-SAN may go on to HOU/ABQ/PHX, etc. So WN has be...Jump to post

I think we will see SFO-PHX become a regular route.
However, I think Alaska execs said their growth will be nearly flat (well 2%) for the next year.
Super beautiful island, and I'm guessing the Out Island Promotion Board or MOT was subsidizing it, because Silver/Gulfstream previously ran this using 1900s way back in the day.
