Some excellent lists above - impressed with the tastes here. Some of mine, also dating to my upbringing on early 90s MTV and the bargain bins at Amoeba Records: Talking Heads - Speaking in Tongues The Cure - Pornography The Stranglers - Rattus Norvegicus Nirvana - Incesticide Siouxsie and the Bansh...Jump to post
-Skyway (flew on behalf of Midwest Express)/Superior (formed from Mesa’s Skyway assets after Midwest Express ended relationship with Mesa and took over Skyway) Desert Sun was the AWE F70 operator for about a year before Mesa got CR2's. They didn't fly props. The rest flew B1900's with a few J31's a...Jump to post
Simple Flying may as well be citing a 4th grade history textbook on the Spanish-American War: really, it adds nothing new to understanding. It seldom does. They're not informing you - they're monetizing your page views. Don't be used. This definitely screamed "content marketing creation" ...Jump to post
And I think that was Florida Gulf at the time- Mesa had a handful of 1900 operators and mushed them all into Air Midwest I think (Liberty Express is another USX operator that YV owned..) Mesa had a bunch of carriers operating under the same umbrella. Air Midwest Florida Gulf Liberty WestAir Mesa De...Jump to post
I love it when someone on airliners who is usually named “Fly(smallstation)” gets upset because their grandfather/father/etc/whatever worked for/lived in/saw Ferris pass out at 31 flavors at/etc/whatever and is mad because the ERJ/CRJ/Metro/Brasilia/wherever flying out of their burg/city/town/whate...Jump to post
A little OT here but I remember flying US back in 2000 MCI-Manhattan,KS then a tag to Dodge City, KS (where I was going). We flew some kind of prop plane (B-1900 I'm assuming) through a terrible thunderstorm. The women in front of me looked like she was ready to scream. I also remember in 2001 flyi...Jump to post
The little hub that ZV had down in CLT was short lived. I believe they did that LWB, BFL and whatever that third city in that trip was once a day also. They flew the B1900 on Charlotte-Lewisburg, WV-Bakersfield, CA? I assume you mean Bluefield, WV whose code if BLF. I'm not sure of the third city b...Jump to post

I said the same thing when UA added routes ex-MKE, but I can almost guarantee MKEMIA will do well. People in WI see traveling to Florida almost as a pilgrimage. If you fly it, they will come.Jump to post
Kenosha is a symptom of a much larger national disease.
If your phone number starts with 414,262, or 608, this is nothing new.
WI has been the scene of voter suppression, gerrymandering, destruction of social safety nets and union busting for years.
Fun watching the usual suspects list all the illegal things the black guy did as proof why he deserved to be shot in the back, while ignoring all the illegal things the white kid did as proof of why he is innocent of murdering people. I wonder why that is. Yep, right on time. You can set your watch...Jump to post
Blake's sister has some things to say:

The photos I’ve seen show him with an object in his hand, and it looks like a knife. As a police officer do you let this potentially violent criminal drive away with a bunch of kids while having a sexual assault warrant active and while potentially holding a lethal weapon? No, you try another non-l...Jump to post
Wasn't NW quite top heavy compared to other airlines? I wonder whether DL inherited that in the DL/NW merger? I've heard more than one person say that DL have never before in their history been more top heavy than they are right now... At the station(s) level, NW ran much leaner than the current mo...Jump to post
I thought all lives matter? Where are the all lives matter people protesting a man being shot in the back seven times in front of his children? Nah, they only matter IF they obey instructions...because if only the guy had complied, he wouldn't have been shot (you know...because going to check on hi...Jump to post
That's where (VP/MD/D) I expect to see a good bit of departures - the amount of GM and above positions I think tripled from when I joined DL corporate in 2012 and left in 2019. Given that these roles carry a hefty bit of pay, there's definitely some opportunities for trimming the fat. +1 There are ...Jump to post
DL ATL-PVD OCT 3>0 NOV 3>2
DL has good bench strength behind Gil. There's Lentsch. And Ed sent Medeiros down to MEX to run AM as COO for two years and turned that operation using most of the DAL playbook around before wanting back in the states. DAL prefers to bring up from within so it'll be interesting to see. It'll be int...Jump to post
My optomitrist had an employee show up with one with the vent on one side in the front. Also see people wearing them around town. If you breath out it releases through an unfiltered vet,. If you breath in it comes through the mask & vent stays closed. Thats why you don't see that model in hospi...Jump to post
During the Second World War, the authorities in London asked their citizens to turn their lights off a night, to deny the German bombers the opportunity to sight their location. No one whined that, "It's my right to keep my lights on!" . No one complained that, "I am special, and I d...Jump to post
DL already dropped over 20 markets via DOT exemptions. If memory serves, only 4-5 (maybe 6?) are showing availability. My guess is the rest are gone for good.Jump to post
You'd think a SEAL would know all about small sacrifices for the greater good.
As for DL itself, rules are rules; they have been extremely clear (and adamant) about mask usage. They have also stated that no one is above the "law," be it a Diamond elite, or a former SEAL looking for clout.
At SBN all AA flights are worked by Corporate Wings for both the counter and below wing. I'm not positive but the DL and UA flights are worked by the former DGS with the UA counter worked by ZW and DL counter by DL.
Eh. The thing about DBQ is that of the metro areas around there, it is by far the smallest. Aside from a John Deere plant, there's not much going on. With business and university travel next to nil, this doesn't surprise me. DBQ is well-connected by four-lane expressways to ALO, CID, and MLI (not t...Jump to post
