JNU is way too difficult, particularly for pilots who may be unfamiliar with the approach and a plane with mechanical difficulties. Hence, they chose YXY. Makes no sense. Unless the weather was bad they have a localizer approach. The cirus club flies it every year It's not just the approach, depend...Jump to post

Good for them. There are way too many idiots out there who think their business meeting or their trip to Disney are worth risking other people's lives for (not just during COVID, but all the time). Also, 100.4/100.5 are pretty much the standard for most facilities that have a temperature check righ...Jump to post

Many markets, like my hometown of CID, will only see one Delta flight a day. 1 CR9 to MSP and that’s it. Looks similar for MSN, DSM As well. Lots more routes chopped from DTW. How many flights a day are being run from ATL? Would be curious to see. Looks like DL has gutted domestic connections thru ...Jump to post

Moisture definitely sets it off. I had it go off once on my chest because of a coffee spill that was mostly dry and already embarrassing enough.
Separately, would Delta cancel a summer flight, if it is 50% full at this time but most of those seats are frequent flyer tickets from 25K to 28K miles round trip? There is no way Delta (or any airline) would fill anywhere near 50% of a summer TATL flight with frequent flyer tickets. The cancelling...Jump to post

Why don't the unions waive dues for a few months to help employees? Aren't they supposed to have the employees' best interest at heart? At a minimum they should issue a press release that all union executives are taking temporary pay cuts in proportional to their members' income. LOL - That will be...Jump to post

So lets say one forgets to reconfirm their paid ticket and shows up for their full flight and the airline sold the seat to someone else? Did the airlines refund the unconfirmed passenger back in those days when they resold the seat? If not what right does the airline have to double dip by charging ...Jump to post
I'm sure there are a few routes out there where cargo is significant enough that large planes fly the route to compensate but it can't be many - maybe someone else has a few examples.

AA just doesn't know when to quit. They generate such bad will with their customers. People who buy tickets are customers.

I agree with the posters who say use the time to go into Munich. Munich airport is clean and very efficient and a great place to connect.

Do you have any statistics to prove that, or are you just making it up as you go along? :roll: IF you would read the OP's link the stats for each aircraft are individually detailed.

Another day and another Delta widebody diversion? According to FlightAware they descended as soon as they turned around and flew a long way at 12,000 feet. It might be a pressurization problem.

No one who was not on that airplane (except maybe those that interviewed them afterwards, if that happened) can know what they could have or could not have done.

I think it's a perk that needs to be abolished. Employees need to fork up the cash like the rest of us. Them getting free or next to free traveling dilutes the experience.

Minneapolis is quite good at it. As someone who moved from Chicago to Minneapolis, MSP is in much better shape when it snows.

Does ALPA deserve a share of the AMEX or Techops money for example? My guess is that Delta mainline produces less than 50% of the total, yet it must be admitted, is the "flagship."
