Seems like with Tech companies choosing to migrate east from likes of Seattle and Si Valley, AS’s best bet for expansion would be to follow them. The tech companies aren’t migrating east, it is the other way around. Some are getting so big that they need to open campuses in more cities, but by and ...Jump to post
The thought is tech people talking about tech, but also how those tech compnaies run their businesses. At A.net everyone is an armchair CEO at some point.

Economists have a term where somebody make profit in part off of costs that others bear. Maybe “externalities”?
How about limiting home owners to one internal combustion engine vehicle ... phased in over time....dare we consider that as an eventual goal?
Hello. A.net seems to be rather special: cool aviation geek content, lots of knowledgeable and active a.netters, plus a lot of discussion about commercial aviation as a business. Is there a similar forum for Enterprise IT, as in servers, storage, software, data networking, public cloud services, etc...Jump to post
How does anyone outside of AAG Operations and Finance have a clue about how profitable these routes are? I can imagine that if you can get publicly available load data (can you??) and they are just horrendous that’s a reasonable indication. But still far from conclusive. Beyond loads are other facto...Jump to post
Hopefully some of those DAL flights will become mainline eventually. But if you get a 1st-class upgrade and get a seat on the single side in the E175, it's pretty nice! In fact they did upgrade me on the way down, Saturday evening. That single left seating was fun, but as I texted my family “the wo...Jump to post
A few weeks ago I flew in and out of DAL for the first time. I really liked the fact that I could drive from downtown to the airport quickly and didn’t need to take the highway. You are driving along some typical road and then suddenly you are at the airport. The rental car facility is pleasantly cl...Jump to post
The OP’s FlightGlobal link mentions a possible fourth terminal. Where would that be built?Jump to post
Even had Narita expanded years ago the advent of efficient mid sized twins and alliances would have led to lack of hubbing through Tokyo, except for ANA and JAL.
It still seems a bit strange to think of Narita with more than one runway.
Yeah, I don’t think so. I used to pay quite some attention to their route maps and don’t remember that.Jump to post
When was the last time a ‘new’ airport for regularly scheduled commercial jet service opened in the US, was that Denver?
There have been new concourses and terminals since then, but opening PAE is more than that.
Not a nice situation. The pasenger was probably trying to keep a promise to the family and not have to cancel their holiday. That’s commendable. The airline’s flight crew weren’t out to ruin anybody’s vacation but at the end of the day they are responsible and liable for the flight and passengers as...Jump to post

Besides Seattle metro being about 4 million persons, and a rich and very quickly growing one at that, it is hugely important to the world’s IT industry.

I can’t imagine AS letting those gates go, at least until they’ve tried for many years to make money from them as part of their system. It’s a differentiator for them, and a lever to pull with routes and pricing. UA ran the numbers and pulled out of JFK. Now they apparently regret that. If anyone in...Jump to post
Times have changed. My Dad grew up in Denver decades ago. He said he and his friends would bicycle over to the airport and ask if a plane would be arriving “that day”. In those days Cheyenne was the busy stop as the airplanes “couldn’t get over the Colorado Rockies.” Wyoming was the much easier path...Jump to post
The taxiway along the second runway at Narita swerves close enough to the runway at one point that if a plane is landing the taxiing aeroplane must pause while the other passes by. It is full length, but taxi movement depends on what’s happening on the runway.Jump to post
Thanks as always for putting this summary together--I really like looking at it every Sunday morning! One question: In the title, it says "VX Gone." What does that mean?

For IAG. Maybe operate the upper deck with BA service for example. F/J/W/Y and then downstairs 10/11 abreast Y/Y+ with Level crew? As I started reading that sentence my mind raced ahead to the idea of BA service and branding on the upper deck, with Iberia service and branding on the lower deck. Tru...Jump to post

Having noticed the occasional story about such cold-hearted acquiescence I'm very glad to see the ruling.

So we saw a number of routes from SFO and SJC, and now these new routes from SAN.

Hang on - remove the staircase? I know there is another one at the back, but I thought the staircase also acted as an emergency evac route which legally allows passengers in the front bit of the upper deck with no door in front of them.

Pros and cons of the old and the new. This is definitely better than the old on a mobile phone, but I like the old color palette and density of topic summaries.
