I would assume that all HA services to mainland west coast will be served by A321 aircraft as quickly as additional aircraft are introduced into the fleet. That would be in line with most other carriers that offer predominately single aisle aircraft on those same routes, and presumably why HA inves...Jump to post
Why wasn't the 736 successful? Just bad timing entering the market? The 735 did decent enough didn't it? Most sources claim, that the Boeing 737-600 is a rather heavy aircraft despite the appearance of a short haul jetliner. This variant was probably not the best-suited aircraft for those airlines,...Jump to post

Hopefully DTW-DXB will come on line soon. We need to see LAX, SEA, and BOS up to 2 daily again. Also ORD needs to see an A380 before DTW is even thought about.

To me, BNA seems like an obvious add for a seasonal Condor flight eventually, but I don't see it until 2019 at the soonest. I think other carriers will wait to see how the BA flight does before launching additional TATL service from BNA. I expect WN to add a few more destinations in 2018, among the...Jump to post
I think 2018 could be a good year for BNA. If this London flight does well, it wouldn't surprise me to see Condor add seasonal FRA service from here. I hope this is the year WN gives BNA some love.

This is 3 times the number of airplanes that they have now. Some will be for replacement, but probably +100 will be for expansion.

I don’t see us getting any Hawaiian service here in ABQ. The population here is not very wealthy and it’s a short hop to California in order to connect to a Hawaiian flight. I won’t say never but I’d say it’s extremely unlikely. You don't have to be wealthy to go to Hawaii. The issue is there's pro...Jump to post
Ontario, Airport is your best bet. ONT has fewer destinations than they did 10-20 years ago. Delta used to fly 763's there when they had a hub at DFW. It's too far away for many. Southwest dominates.

If you want my opinion.. I see KDEN, KORD, KATL, KBOS, KABQ, KMIA and KMSP being the only possibilities of even possible future service.

What is concerning is that the press release mentioned there isn't definitive to the cause or spot of the outage. That likely comes later. There have been several comments about where the problems started. It would be irresponsible to report until they know. I think the midnight ETA is optimistic.Jump to post
However, it's a minor point, WN is also big at ATL and has no agreements, but no one is criticizing them. Delta has other hubs they can use. I wonder if WN runs a lot of connecting traffic through ATL. Those going to/from ATL have no choice but wait.. And for those connecting through ATL, I hope WN...Jump to post
When will the FAA put flight caps at ATL in order to stop this kind of stuff (one little thing going wrong causing massive disruptions)?

The fourth total power outage in the recent past? News to me. No, the 4th time the DL network has been paralyzed because of problems at ATL.

At the risk of igniting a DL vs AA flame war, which I don't want to do: I think events like this drive home how important it is that DL and AA should have a full interline agreement.
