What's the reasoning for that? No TPAC or TATL service, no AVOD, no possibility of Admirals Club access, no Y+ or F upgrades... I also switched from AA, Chemist, to Delta.

Questionable fleet decisions on some routes. On MIA-SEA, the 321S has better range than the 738 and usually can do the route much more easily, but a 738 is still often scheduled on the route...often times needing a fuel stop even when the 321 can make it. Also, 737s are regularly scheduling into bo...Jump to post

It's an INC article. I'd take it with a grain of salt; they love to rip AA. It's like Huffpo with Donald Trump.Jump to post

Keep waiting, you won’t see SMF-FLL on AA.
I meant that as any carrier to FLL (eg. B6), not AA. Obviously AA would service through MIA.

They don't have to be worried, a lot of pax are offended by airlines everyday, whatever their religious belief. But hey, they are jews so the FA is clearly antisemitic. While many in the western framework see Judaism as simply a religion, it is a peoplehood, ethnicity and cultural heritage. Also wo...Jump to post
According to an email to its pilots, Delta still plans on announcing BOM service later this year. This was as of yesterday the 17th and in direct response to the suspension of Jet Airways. Unless Delta partners with Air India, Mumbai is a no go. Just tossing this out there! Though seriously, back t...Jump to post
Load Factor Spreadsheet updated for January https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Yw4fGz1al2nkcjP6_v0cucDmpsxWeA0nRn7LXdgoI2I/edit?usp=sharing The 44% (rounding up) on DL to CVG really stands out.

I love watching an airport start to gain traction. San Deigo, my home airport, went through two such periods, one domestically many years ago, and then another international period over the last few years where we've seen rapid growth and now have flights to London, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Zurich, Cabo, ...Jump to post
I just left my company's travel trade show and Delta was present.

Hello United fleet experts, Are there any aircraft that still sport CO's old checkerboard fabric economy seat covers (like the GE-powered ex-CO 772ERs with the 2-2-2 lieflat biz class)? Also on the UA fleet site, what are the "old seat covers" vs. "new seat covers" on the 752s? I...Jump to post

AA dropped DFW-GIG after its season ended and only lasted a couple of months I believe. They also cut DFW-UIO. I think AA should leave the less prominent SA markets to MIA. Wasn't UIO and MGA cut by AA due to the MAX issues and the schedule readjustment? DFW-UIO was cut in 2017/2018 or so--nothing ...Jump to post
Iceland is a popular destination. The flight itself might not be a cash cow, but it fits into AA's transatlantic portfolio nicely, and I am sure many frequent flyers are booking these flights as opposed to taking AA to a gateway then Icelandair the rest fo the way.

I went to the Galapagos out of GYE during spring break. I flew back to MIA on AA out of GYE. It was completely full. JetBlue made a good decision starting GYE-FLL; I believe the route was announced a week after we booked our return flight GYE-MIA on AA. The AA flights (at least in March) from GYE ar...Jump to post
I've seen taxi times on departing flights (Delta to Nice, AA to SFO, Aeroflot to SVO, etc.) that have been around 3.5 hours. Shortest taxi I've seen in the past hour is 1 hour 20.

Definitely EWR. I say built one over I-95 and make it a tunnel below it for cars like at LAX. The problem with building another 4/22 runway at EWR is there's no way to get arrivals onto it or departures off it without compromising traffic flow to an existing runway due to traffic conflicts with LGA...Jump to post
Probably CM is also preventing the incursion of potential airlines like WN or B6 into the FLL-PTY market. Since NK and CM are on FLL-PTY, for some reason I visualise WN or B6 flying from FLL to BLB, RIH or even ONX instead of PTY. Oh, WN won't touch Pacifico. They are not seeking international expa...Jump to post

Not seeing pictures.
That said, you got a nice blog.
Do you think any more international airlines will come to DFW?
I've though for a while that two MAD frequencies from DFW on AA (1x 772, 1x 789) is a bit much. I would like to see Iberia take one of those frequencies with an A330-200. What are your thoughts?
I wonder if DL could jump on LAX-ELP. Then again, unlike AA or UA, it doesn't appear to be very invested in LAX these days.Jump to post

A month later, Elwell initiated another exchange.
