After working at NW for 3 years now, I've seen a lot happend with our airline and other airlines in the industry. After Sept. 11, however, Southwest has absolutely kept their head above the water...and it is amazing me more and more every time I hear about their status. They have made so much money ...Jump to post
Becoming a pilot has always been my dream, and I am almost there. I think there are many things that attract me to becoming a pilot. The money is one of them of course, but to people who live and breath aviation, like myself, have something more on their mind when they fly. I take flight about 4 tim...Jump to post
We've seen a few airlines like Frontier, PanAm, and National make a come back after closing their doors years ago. What airlines do you guys think will try making a come back, or would like to see come back? I'm wondering if Eastern or Braniff would ever start up again. I'd like to see them, along w...Jump to post
I hear this new terminal being built, supposedly for AA and their int'l flights which 2 have been dropped, is going to be done very soon...who is going to move in there? Also, repaving the runway farthest from the terminal is going to be repaved, anybody know when? I tried getting the master plan of...Jump to post
Thumbing thru a small book entitled "Southwest Airlines-30 years, One Mission, Low Fares", I came accross a page that shows an old table of fares, one section being Executive Class and the other Pleasure Class. Did WN have different classes back then?

Hey guy- Know what...? Most of us don't have time to lick our cute little thumbs and thumb our way thru the forum to make sure there's not another freakin post of the same nature as ours. If you do in fact have that much free time being an airline pilot and all, you better start flying for an airlin...Jump to post
Hey all you non-revers out there, and anybody else interested...I'm planning on taking a Hawaiian Airlines DC10 one way from LAS-LAX this coming Monday. I hear that they are retiring them very soon, and I want a chance to fly on one. For all of us airline employees in the US, I believe it's 26.00 fo...Jump to post
I have 4 days off this next week. I'm debating on a few places to go, and one of my choices is PHX via HP. We get free tickets on HP so I thought they'd be the best...are they a good airline to fly? Never flown them... Also, PHX, what's there to do there for tourists? Best place to stay thats cheap?...Jump to post
Currently, the airport is building a new customs terminal adjacent to the A terminal. It has 3 new jetways and it was supposed to accomidate the AA Tokyo, Paris, & Taipai flights, also the Mexicana flights. Now that AA cut the Paris and Taipai routes, what are they going to do wtih those jetways, an...Jump to post
I'm still in awe everybody... I work for SWA here in SJC, me and a few fellow employees flew down to LA to see the show today...well I was called up, number 2 in the very beginning, and after 2 tries, won myself on stage, won 9,000 in prizes (dinnette set, and painting), then spun the wheel, got 95c...Jump to post
Airplane tires are filled with nitrogen, not air. They would explode from the pressure change if they had air.
After take off, the breaks are applied to the main gear to stop the wheels from spinning as they are raised up into the well.
The wheel well of a 747-400 is 230 sq. ft.
Not sure, very good question. I haven't seen them around SEA either...Jump to post
Boeing757Fan- Yes, please do not post anything that you do not know anything about... We will be keeping our DC10's well through the next 5 years. The A330 orders have been put on hold, we have not taken delivery of our 753's yet, and like Braniff said, some of our -10's have been grounded because o...Jump to post
When planes land there are two basic types of thrust reverse, the ones on the MD80 series and the normal engine split-apart. What exactly is happening within the engine when that happens? How does it slow the plane down? Do the fans turn the oposite direction? Please explain in detail each engine an...Jump to post
I was wondering since SWA is remodeling their planes inside and out, are the aft-facing seats in the 3 and 500 series aircraft going to be removed, or are they going to still have that on their planes?
One more question, how much longer are we going to see UA 727's?
Friend's b-day is next week, I need to order him a model of a Croatia Airlines A320 or 732, or whatever. What company can I find one thru, Wooster? I don't want one that involves painting, just the snap-together ones. Thanks for any info...
Thank you Mah4546. The only airline we've really seen go under in the US from this catastrophie is Midway which was already suffering losses and already had filed chpt. 11. You guys are trippin. Although the airlines are suffering, they will not go under, guaranteed.
On behalf of all my fellow normal buddies here on a.net, I'd like to apologize for the supidity of some people speculating that you were involved. They have this rare syndrom that nobody can find a cure for, it's called somthing like "have no life" and another common one is "I like to play cop" or s...Jump to post
I hope it will be gone. There is no need to have any tools at the airports for terrorists. I love spotting, but dude, 1000's have died. Airports need to start becoming camps. You get in, you fly out. That's it. If you want to spot, walk down Sepulveda.
Are you guys like normal? Do you think in light of everything going on right now that people are looking to this website that is among millions in the internet? Do you think that thread posted about the WTC over a year ago is actually one of the terrorists? Are you guys for real, please tell me you ...Jump to post
I can't help but sort of laugh at some of the posts I've been reading lately about people bitching because they cannot spot in the terminals anymore, or cannot get airline stuff from the desks, etc. Right now, take a second and just think of what happened on Tuesday and then tell me again how mad yo...Jump to post
