Dutch Harbor is not a "subsidized" EAS market. Alaska always ran it as a "capacity purchase agreement" with PenAir for the past 10 years (or more?).Jump to post
Giving Dutch its own thread...
Penair previously operated Anchorage, AK to Dutch Harbor/Unalaska (DUT/PADU) using its fleet of 34 Saab 340B - bookable only to 26/27 passengers, and then upgraded to the Saab 2000 with barely 40 passengers. After the S20 overrun, Penair stopped flying and Ravn operated the route using its Dash 8-20...Jump to post
Is southeast going to go down tow. Daily milk run? I've heard JNU will get down to basically the milk runs.

a weight restricted E175 would make it... she's got the brakes for landing and the wing/engines to get her off the ground. Mid Atlantic/USAirways mastered Key West very quickly with the E170s back in 2006.... DUT is only 300 feet shorter than EYW. Yep, E175 can work there just like it does at HHH. ...Jump to post
Well Danny parked the 135 the moment his dad stepped away from the PenAir ops. State of Alaska *will* need to step in, since they pay for Medicaid/Medicare travel in Alaska... add in DPS/Troopers, etc. I'm still in shock that Ravn didn't at least cut frequencies. The Canadian carriers are keeping al...Jump to post

AAG does significant cargo business, with close ties to Lynden and others. Its cheaper to throw some stuff in the belly of a 737 than it is to buy space on Global/Atlas/FedEx. Case in point: Look at Juneau, Alaska. Alaska is barely putting on 10-20 people a flight (if even), but the Juneau schedules...Jump to post
with MASSIVE AIF (PFC) fees, the airports in Canada shouldn't be charging the airlines a damn thing! An airline that flies to YVR pays almost the same rent (counter, office, ramp, gate rents) as they do in Seattle. yet passenger fees: YVR AIF = $25 SEA PFC = $4.50 Let THAT sink in.... someone is get...Jump to post
I flew Alaska First Class on Friday, we were offered only water or cans of soda. Snack basket was passed around, and deli packs offered from economy.
No more inflight magazine either.

Just wanted to chime in from a *NETWORK PLANNING* perspective. Not all airlines have time to update a SSIM (IATA standard file for the flight schedule), unless they are on automated SSM (sends individual flight updates rather than all at once in a single file) updates to the GDSs. In the case of Fro...Jump to post

Pacific Coastal is the lastest victim
could it be related to the strength of the floor locks, as I'm pretty certain that any can has to be locked into place. And there are weight limits on each can.Jump to post

They also never brought back PBI-MHH after Hurricane Dorian. There's really NOTHING in MHH right now. Its still in clean-up mode. I think they just got the roof on one of the schools fixed.

I'm wondering about Compass at this point... they are also on their way out, no?
Scary to think that all will be left of the once powerhouse will be GoJet, the once "scab" airline. (ref: ALPA, not me. I honestly don't care).
Getting 60 frames from VX and gates/slots would have gave B6 the opening they desperately need to grow on the west coast. I can confidently say they would not have done the reciprocal of what AS is doing which is pull back the California operation in exchange for RJs and parked 737MAXs. A larger VX...Jump to post
I do think it's strange that AS can't make KOA work from SFO, but they can from OAK/SJC. It seems like they would want to keep it to compete with UA. Its timed for nothing more than local traffic, which boggles my mind. If it arrived 2 hours earlier they can get some connection traffic on it. But a...Jump to post
If their boarding pass says ITT, then once you enter customs, hang a very HARD RIGHT and that will put you into the connections area (only for AC-AC). If that area is closed (and it does), then you will clear with everyone else, but stay on the right. Its a bit shorter than the left and exiting into...Jump to post

Air travel is NOT a right, but a privilege. Therefore, concessions to accommodate all should not be made. Reasonable, yes. Forced, no. Especially by government. The public has gotten away too long by being cheap and claiming every animal is an ESA and its causing a mess. Its about time the DOT tries...Jump to post
I'm going to be curious to watch WN's ITO loads when they hit the T100s.

AC has been in T2 for a while. At one point, AC had close to 9 flights a day out of FLL. In its "slow" season they have 4. Compared to Westjet's sole flight in the off season...
