RE: DCA Gate Changes

Will AA flights that currently departed from 28-33 now move over to the northern-most pier currently used solely by US? Does this mean all AA/US flights occupy only that one north pier?

Does anyone know when AA/US will be joining their gates at PBI? Currently One is in the C terminal and the other in B.

RE: Flying Through And Dodging Clouds

Thanks everyone. I should clarify though. I am not talking about storms necessarily. I was thinking more along the lines of a standard (not rain or storm producing) layer of broken, but thick clouds. I find that often it feels like we fly through these perfect holes or breaks. Not a major deviation,...

Flying Through And Dodging Clouds

I've noticed, so often, we seem to perfectly dodge clouds and fly through small breaks/openings. I suspect this is entirely coincidental, but thought it was worth an ask. Do pilots actually dodge clouds and find openings during climb and descent? Or, would that have to be done only by making unautho...

What Plane Will I Be On?

I know this has been asked before, but as far as I could find, not since 2004. Is there any resource out there (or trick) that helps one figure out exactly what plane (in terms of reg. #) they'll be on prior to showing up at the airport and looking out the window? Much appreciated.

Does anyone have or know if there are any interior photos out there of the most recent AA 737s that have been delivered with the new cain/IFE? I've searched extensively with no luck.

AA 767 Overhead Bins

Does anyone know why the <acronym title="American Airlines (USA)">AA</acronym> 767's have 777 style bins only through first class and the first three rows (mini cabin) of economy/main cabin extra? Why would they not update bins through the entire cabin? Is this the case across other airlines' 767's ...

Steering Plane On The Ground

I know that planes have some sort of tiller to steer on taxiways, but i've always been amazed how planes are always so centered on the taxiway lines. I have to imagine its pretty difficult to see when steering a large aircraft. So how are they always so precise?

WN Climb Rate

I've noticed, consistently over many years, WN flights seems to take of and climb at a significantly steeper rate than other airlines. I would have never thought that this is something that could vary airline to airline, but rather might be based off airport or aircraft. That being said, I have noti...
