Didn't they already have a Swedish AOC from when they bought Fly Nordic? Or did they let that AOC expire? This was my first question when I saw the title of this thread, but yes they did have a Swedish AOC up until the end of the last decade but merged everything into their current one. I wondered ...Jump to post
I spent much of the day at SFO on Friday the 22nd to see off a friend heading home and add in a bit of spotting. As you said, the AI 77L also took off from 1R; I thought it strange being so close to the ends of the 1s yet for some strange reason I still thought it was going out to the 28s, so I assu...Jump to post
15A here, it was a blast that exceeded my expectations, and I already had lofty expectations considering it was VX (if my username is a clear signal), though certainly helped by Alaska giving effectively free reign including opening the AS Lounge at LAX to anyone on the flight and past its normal op...Jump to post
A widebody operating an international departure can also be towed to gate 8 (or another on the opposite side, not sure of the specific number) to free up 1/3 for arrivals, or at least I've read it that way. DY has also grown a lot at FLL with roughly the same destinations and frequency as OAK. Is DY...Jump to post
I know this topic hasn't had a post for days (Flyertalk's discussion is a fair bit more active, including confirmation that AS is going to do something special not only for this flight but also flight 1182 to EWR, but I'm not a member there), but before this past Easter weekend the price dropped to ...Jump to post
At this time, one type I'm excited to fly AC's A330 come June as it'd be my first, although that might be a bit up in the air since UA rescheduled the inbound SFO-YVR from 8 AM to 8:40 AM with a 37-minute connection to an AC A330 to fly YVR-YUL.

I find it interesting that (for a time), which callsign/AOC is used at least for the 787s seemed to be first determined by the route, not the country the aircraft is registered in. A G-registered aircraft could fly to a destination that is neither SIN or EZE but use the DY/Nor Shuttle AOC but from w...Jump to post
They currently have 5 flights a day out of international terminal. Are these typically the Mexico flights? Mex, sna, MSP, SLC and one other flight.

I thought that Norwegian had planned to only lease out the NEOs. That might have been their initial plan, but now they're seeing opportunities to use the planes for themselves. Maybe they'll still lease out some of them, but not all. Pretty much this. Leasing out the A320neos yes, but sometime last...Jump to post

Hi everybody, According to FlightRadar24, it seems that the only route that the new A321neo is operating on a regular basis is SFO-DCA; even then, you see the occasional A320 operating this route.

SFO, LAX and MIA at least operate with turns around or in excess of 20 hours in the 3-weekly winter schedule, whereas in the summer it's closer to a 2-hour turn since those flights operate daily and are actually pushed farther into the evening.

Too bad, it was always nice to have the option to earn Alaska miles on intra-Europe flights on AF/KL since jump-starting onto Mileage Plan from VX/Elevate.

What does this have to do with JetBlue? Yeah, they both have Blue in the name, but this name change has nothing to do with B6.
