Who's aircraft are you referring to, AQ737? If Midway, then don't hold your breath. JI is now a subsidiary of US Airways and has suspended their operations and returned their 6 737-700 aircraft to the lessor. It's a shame that we won't see JI's great yellow livery any longer. As for Virgin Blue fitt...Jump to post
It depends on if you count the 727's that Southwest leased/aquired during the late 1970's and early 1980's. Here are a few pictures of the 727-200's. The first two are of a bird leased from Braniff, with a modified <i>Southwest</i> title. <br><table align=center border=0 width=500><tr><td><center><f...Jump to post
Thanks for the confirmation. I was hoping, though, for the equipment to be a 737-series aircraft.

If memory serves, we've talked about this topic before in another thread. The last I heard (which means very little), Continental would be resuming it's non-stop flight to Newark, NJ (EWR).

Hey guys, I read an interesting article today from the Navy News Service. This new cruise missile engine, tested recently in Hampton, VA, can attain speeds in excess of Mach 6.

Airliners.net is the only aviation-related website I visit regularly.

As many of us are well aware, London's airports include Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), Stansted (STN), Luton (LTN), and London City (LCV). I am looking for more information on these airports, and if someone could give me a quick brief on what purpose each airport serves, I would be very thankful (i....Jump to post
It is my understanding that the 777 was designed from the ground up, three-dimensionally, and completely on computers. Besides, Boeing didn't acquire the McDonnell Douglas corporation until August 1997! The answer is no, the 777 was not derived from the MD11.

Possible. What's with the JMC A330's? Supposedly there was another JMC A330 stranded at MSP in the last week. It seems JMC has used a number of equipment substitutions lately, including an Omni Air Intl. DC10-30 and a Comet Air A310. It was discussed on another thread (to read, click <a href="http:/...Jump to post
I would think it would be pretty obvious. Perhaps the best thing that has ever happened to Atlanta is its ideal location and its home carrier, Delta. I feel that the surge in passengers at ATL is directly related to Delta's presence there (obviously). Don't get my wrong--AirTran has helped too, but ...Jump to post

Yes, because the WN flight numbers are in the 4XXX and 5XXX range, and because they are arriving and departing in cities not normally served by WN, they are probably charters as well. Not all airlines use the same system, though. Many of the ex-TWA routes operated by American use four-digit flight n...Jump to post
I was looking through a flight-tracker tonight and found Aeromexico 6420. It seems that Aeromexico serves both SFB and MCO. Was 6420 a charter or scheduled service?

Today, Saturday, at MCO I was surprised to see a departing A319 in US Airways <i>Shuttle</i> colors. My question is this: On the weekends, does US operate the <i>Shuttle</i> equipment on non-Shuttle routes? If not, I assume that this A319 was just an equipment substitution. This may have been discus...Jump to post
Dutchjet has a good point. If the 737-600 operates so poorly and uneconomically, why does Boeing continue to market the product? <b>SAS</b> may not be 100% satisfied with the product, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad product. The 736 simply didn't meet <b>their</b> expectations. Lat...Jump to post
Logically, most of the routes into STL previously operated by TWA are now operated by American using ex-TWA aircraft. TWA did operate the 767 (and L1011, as mentioned above) into MCO before the buyout (see pictures below). The STL-MCO route is operated by a 767-300, and it sure is nice to see the TW...Jump to post

Jetstream 61: A valid topic, yes, but why would you book PHL-ORF on Midway Airlines anyway? Midway suspended a number of its routes months upon months ago, and until recently (per the US agreement) had service to Florida via RDU to only DCA, LGA, and BOS. In addition, if you have any credits on Midw...Jump to post
MAH4546: Right, however the issue wasn't if KEF-MCO was in the 752's range.

Icelandair operates a seasonal service to Orlando (MCO), however I do believe there is a fuel stop along the way.

I've enjoyed my visits at MCO, JFK, SFB, DCA, MIA, FLL, ATL, TPA, and BHM. But TPA nicer than MCO? I beg to differ.

I don't know if Virgin Express is a possibility, but I have a feeling (as I mentioned above) that Virgin Blue would be interested in these birds.
