I'm sure this has already been covered ad-nauseum and I do apologize for redundancy, but does the UK have a chapter 11 equivalent? Were any laws changed after the Monarch fiasco.

One doubt...after this TCX airline demise, the main Thomas Cook Group wont be affected, working normally as an hotel and tour operator, or will also enter into some kind of administration/protection? I believe so that the whole group is packing up its bags, however Condor is still operating? We wai...Jump to post

Gosh and there I was thinking the 800 was a five hour plane. Those Copa flights definitely have some restrictions, although the fact that they don't have to deal with the east-west winds as much also helps them. Also with seatback IFE and free meals it's just like a widebody, minus an aisle. I mean...Jump to post
This is not unique to Delta, ATI JVs have killed traditional alliances. Alliances do not allow capacity coordination. That is key to the price and margin control Delta wants. Basically alliances allow “too much competition” between partners is the real translation. Alliances also grew too fast, whi...Jump to post
BOS-STL. Make it like MKE. WN currently has a monopoly, and five daily 737s with no competition. Also, SAN would be advisable. I'm thinking STL on an E175 and SAN on a 738.Jump to post
With widebodies, the comfort choices are entirely in the hands of the airlines. And the customers. It has been noted elsewhere that Y customers seem ready to switch for only a few dollars difference in ticket prices - despite any seat (or bag, or meal, or IFE, or bathroom size, etc) differences. .....Jump to post
Does anyone know why it was running as a 763 instead of a 752? Equipment swap?Jump to post

Age of the aircraft seem like a pertinent piece of info, given the topic. How is your comment relevant to the discussion?
Already being discussed.

More like it’s cheaper to put people on a train and use a slot in a severely slot constrained airport for a profitable route. Even if that’s the case, which I think it is, still makes sense towards a future strategy in Europe on reducing short-haul flights by using train feed for long-haul. A combi...Jump to post
I know this sounds crazy at first, but hear me out: FAT. No, it's crazy on the 2nd and 3rd thought, too. When ATL-ONT has struggled over the years something like CLT-FAT has no chance. Be happy with the DFW frequencies. You wouldn't just be overflying DFW, CLT has less than half the O&D traffic...Jump to post

Also a lot more capacity on the EWR- SLC route from DL and UA. Anything to do with the new terminal?
DEN-RIW-SHR. It’s a SkyWest milk run like DEN-PUB-LBL, DEN-HYS-SLN.
First cancellation seems to be Air Force One flight to Poland. Mar-a-lago needs protection. With the current track it will take a direct hit as a Cat4 storm. What is Trump going to do to "protect" the resort? This should be good! They've sent home all workers, leaving only security guards.Jump to post
My biggest gripe with AA is consistency and that comes from the top. Some great staff, some awful & that’s been the case for too long now. It’s particularly the case when you compare ground staff versus those in the cabin. Onboard, especially domestically in J, you might get a comfortable 737 w...Jump to post

IIRC AA did ORD-ANC at some point or another. Between 2002-2005, AA operated up to 3 flights a day to Anchorage. I believe AA kept the DFW-STL route alive until the end of the 2003 season. When the STL-ANC route was nixed, the additional flight shifted to ORD, leaving 2x ORD-ANC, and 1x DFW-ANC dai...Jump to post
Also nice to see BZN getting some love.Jump to post
DFW-ANC on the 788 should be a much more comfortable ride than DFW-FAI on the 32Q.
AA is playing catch-up in the Alaska market. It lags United and Delta, and the FAI additions are a good step. The Alaska Air codeshare may also help.
LGA-BZN and LGA-FCA are additions to LGA-JAC as a Saturday-only outside-perimeter flight. I find AA's NE strategy from NY and Boston interesting; in recent months you've seen capacity on short-haul domestic downgauged with the addition of markets like JFK-SFO, BOS-GCM, LGA-BDA, LGA-MTJ, LGA-EYW, and...Jump to post

Pretty rainy today. Most planes circled in a holding pattern then landed, resulting in a long line down the Mississippi corridor for the 30s around 8:30. Don't know if there were any diverts; I don't think so. Planes are coming straight in now; not too many delays.Jump to post
Hasn't there been some up gauging on the Canadian routes? I feel like a bunch that had CR9's and E175's now have A319 service. I could easily be wrong though as I'm working off of memory.
