Re: S1 recessed- and sliding seats approved by FAA

This is a case where they are just over thinking seat design. The middle passenger is already wedged between two other passengers. Having that person fit further back and lower will do nothing to make it feel less claustrophobic. I had the same thought, as if you're now being swallowed up even more...

Re: SNA-takeoff procedure oddity

Doesn't seem like a very long taxi nor hotter weather than usual in Orange County. However, for max performance takeoffs, dont they hold the brakes and rev up the engines? Would that cause them to heat up at all despite a lack of friction?

Re: DL A321 Seats Blocking Exit Door

Here, you can see the same aircraft with the extra exit deactivated: 5141381 Question: is it a regulatory mandate or just a "common practice" to have the active Emergency Exists highlighted on the outside? By highlighted, I mean that they are visible on the paint scheme (even if by just a...

Re: DL A321 Seats Blocking Exit Door

I'm pretty sure this is what the OP is talking about. Seen same on JetBlue and (this example) Vietnam Airlines. It is kinda surprising how much it protrudes into the exit and blocks the observation window.

Re: Mesa E175 incident in ATL?

If it’s a Mesa plane why would DL buy it? Mesa and whomever hit had insurance Wondering the same - also, Mesa leases those E175's from UA. United owns them outright. Well if a DL employee on the job hit it and is at fault it would be under DL’s insurance... Yes, it was a Delta employee that hit the...

Re: Mesa E175 incident in ATL?

It was explained that it was hit by a baggage tug 3 weeks ago, employee was texting and driving. Damage was more extensive than expected (fuel and hydraulic lines) and was bought by DL's insurance company. Both engines currently removed. Sounds like a write-off. This info is from an ATL airport mana...

Re: American A321NEO Cabin Shots

At least its different... when the LED lighting system is capable of something like 1.4 billion different color combinations and United, American, Delta, Alaska, Jetblue, and Southwest ALL choose BLUE. What impresses me is that American sprung for and selected the illuminated handrails just below th...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread - 2019

Sounds like some LGB news is coming soon. The company just pushed a "save the date" (March 12) to all LGB pilots, flight attendants, and station personnel as well as SJU employees for an "Open Call: Ask the Experts: Network Strategy - LGB and SJU." Maybe the other shoe is finally...

Re: Will JetBlue ever fly to Hawaii?

Not happening ever... 1) No ETOPS and nowhere close to getting it. 2) They say they'd love to fly there, but then in the same breath that its a competitive, saturated market and they wouldn't be relevant since they don't offer enough connections or frequency. 3) Its a long stage length with low yiel...
