Was this *just* cancelled, or did it drop off the schedule some time ago? I'm curious because I have a ticket on LGW-OAK in about a month from now; I don't remember even seeing LHR-SJC as an option when I was booking it. (Maybe I should check the OAG thread again.) Shame, too, because SJC has direct...Jump to post

How’d they know the wheel came off? The only indication was the ANTISKID-INOP posting on the EICAS. GF My guess would be by someone seeing the big wheel bouncing happily down the runway.... Please tell me someone made a "you picked a fine time to leave me, loose wheel" joke a la NASCAR.Jump to post

IMHO, the real news story is EUG-SAN, it's a first time non-stop. A market that has some potential, hopefully a year round add as time passes.

2017 numbers from EUG: https://www.eugene-or.gov/DocumentCenter/View/38018 It's striking how DL's traffic has literally doubled while AS has declined around 12% for the year (and ceded the #1 spot to UA).

I just rode an as e175 for the first time. It’s more comfortable than their 737! Anyone who thinks a q400 competes on any segment is delusional. I agree.

I think it's going to be close, but I think it won't push over 20 million. The first half of 2017 has seen an average of 5.3% growth.

United is inflexible currently. That is an issue. Since UA is inflexible with employees, they do not feel empowered to be flexible with passengers. There is a culture issue at UA.

AS/QX/OO would be cool to see do EUG-LAX, or perhaps even EUG-SFO. But I suppose AS must be alright with AA doing EUG-LAX, and UA would probably respond in some form if AS started EUG-SFO.
