MGA could use a longer-haul flight, most likely to MAD, as well as a nonstop to New York. Both Air Europa or Wamos come to mind. Wamos will initiate GUA-HAV-MAD 1x weekly with 330 in June. UX MAD-SAP 1x weekly with 332 started on April 26. I also envisage room for flights into the MGA-MAD market. R...Jump to post
In February, Delta made its first expansion of flights at CVG in over a decade. However, from what I see, I think DL could make a few more routes (on both mainline and regional) work out of CVG. The arrival of the CS100 could also help them expand. My apologies if this Here are some of my ideas: Sho...Jump to post
Youngstown, OH, only Allegiant
Hilton Head, SC, only American
Joplin, MO is only served by AmericanJump to post
I wonder if AC will call it a W/O or put it back into service...
Didn't see this coming but congratulations to both Iran Aseman and Boeing nonetheless. I could definitely see this really help Iran Aseman grow.Jump to post
Pretty cool to see a larger international presence at MSY. Also, great trip report(s)!Jump to post
Congrats to them. I wonder if we'll see them launch for intercontinental routes like JFK, LAX, and MAD now...Jump to post
Well AC is retiring their A320 family aircraft already.
Are we about to see them retire the A330's now? Very interesting nonetheless
DL is the most likely candidate. I can see them retiring some of their A320s sooner rather than later, so we'll see how that shakes out.
It is also a possibility that they order the 737MAX to replace their A320's, similar to what AC is doing.
Hoping it's for 25 748i even though there is no chance of it happening...Jump to post
The last DC-9 in commercial service will be retired sometime around 2100... Along with that, AC is starting to retire their A319/A320/A321 once their 737MAX aircraft enter service (Some going to Air Canada Rogue). Don't know the exact retirement date though. SK 736's are slated to be gone by 2019. L...Jump to post
Personally, I'd love to see the 737MAX in the EK livery. I feel like it would look much better in that livery compared to the A320NEO.Jump to post
Also, on topic, found this great pic of two iconic 747s (the first 747 and first 747-400 over Seattle in '88) http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yJRgkA9oY6M/UN1nc0HbUzI/AAAAAAAAAOA/Cn2JmIMEtmw/s1600/Two747s.jpeg At least both planes still exist, even if in different museums. I haven't actually seen that pho...Jump to post
I was casually walking around near the DCA approach path (aircraft well below 1,000 feet at this point, and easily recognizable) and I believe I saw a 727-200 with winglets landing at DCA. I only saw it from behind, but I did not recognize the livery, and it did not sound like a regular CRJ-700 or E...Jump to post
