I picked up my cousin at MCO yesterday. He flew NK flight 841 from RIC to MCO. The aircraft was an A320. He said literally every seat was full. Packed. That got me to wondering how much traffic has picked up now that Covid vaccines have been widely disseminated in America. As an aside, we have many...Jump to post
My apologies at all, didn’t see winds that strong where I was, but MD/VA did get some winds. I do get frustrated by threads that make operations seem like a spectator sport, second guessing decisions, operations. You're right in that there are frequently threads here that are a bit overblown (no pu...Jump to post
We changed hands again about four years ago (maybe six months after the migration), and not long after, development to the site pretty much halted. I don't see that changing anytime soon. It's frustrating for all of us as well, but there's nothing we can do about it. Makes me wonder if anybody has ...Jump to post
It’s a windy day, big whoop. As a pilot, we’re trained to land on, guess what, windy days. Spring time brings windy days, which in the central plains of the US are called breezy days. Not really big whoop — IAD had a gust yesterday that hit 55kts. That's fairly significant no matter where you are. ...Jump to post
As with other high caseload countries, they issued a 212(f), restricting entry into the US for foreign nationals who have been in India within the prior 14 days. Could you tell me how that is differs to the terminology I used, ie people from India ? In English, a US foreign national from India woul...Jump to post
Some of the posts in here are starting to get quite personal and borderline hostile. Let's take the tone down a few notches and just have a productive discussion please.
Antonov 124 just landed on RWY 30! Wonder what she is carrying? A Globemaster (C-17) landed about 30 minutes or so ago as well. If you're talking about IAD, they see some real interesting metal fly in. I flew AMS-IAD and on final I spotted Gambias IL62 hanging out on the ramp. It was a great sight!...Jump to post
Don’t get me started on that. They made “improvements” to the T4 ticketing level. But it looks like they did it on a bare bones budget. White flooring with white walls. It reminds me of an insane asylum. I’ll have to take a picture when I am there next time. It looks bad in my opinion. The only col...Jump to post
The action has begun. Winds have picked up considerably. IAD using 30 for arrivals. Just watched a Brickyard with a rough landing at DCA using 1. Should have used 33! ANA 9652 went around. This is an odd flight number, what would this be? FR24 states it is 789. Also, Emirates 2543 from CPH landed a...Jump to post
It's still a pain in the ass regardless. It's an antiquated way of uploading images and actually got worse after the migration. It is. Unfortunately the platform the then developers chose (phpBB) isn't really conducive to posting images, but it's a solid and commonly used forum platform. They heavi...Jump to post
DFW showing delays due to staffing. Anyone know if this is covid related? It's not listed as a covid impacted facility, but that doesn't mean that it isn't. It's possible that one or a few areas are short due to contact tracing. I don't have any particular insight, but I do know firsthand that cont...Jump to post
Anyone have any updates to the new United Club? I know it was put on hold for a while, but since I'm assuming it's just a matter of furnishing the space, I can't imagine there's a huge amount of work to be done. I've heard a few rumors, but nothing seemed to be very definitive. Not an update so muc...Jump to post
All you need to do is upload them to Flickr or Imgur. Then copy the url as a .jpg and use the [img] code. Otherwise, you can just post the raw links. It's not as easy as it could/should be, but I went to ASU and even I can figure it out, so no PhD required. The site migration was nearly five years ...Jump to post
Forgive me if I missed it, but any updates on the new Polaris Lounge at IAD? Just curious if work was slowed or halted due to covid. I think it was originally supposed to open sometime early next year, wasn't it?Jump to post
Any images showing the progress of the new T4S? I've seen it at a glance from some YouTube trip reports but would love to see the progress from a still image.

Why does it seem thats this place has flooded with pro AB fanboys, even some of the ones who are pilots, their post trickle with sarcasm, and others so bitter that their hometown airlines own Boeing a/c (you know, the lesser brand, the one that can only win orders by giving away free planes") ...Jump to post
You are correct... I think they just bought the AOC, but it is a new company. That's the fast track to your very own airline. I'm assuming they're the same airplanes too. 3 738s to start with another one coming online shortly. They're even going to fly with the "Casino Express" callsign. ...Jump to post
IMHO as far as cargo goes GYR could play a big role at Amazon. There is room and Amazon has quite a few distribution facilities on the west side. They could eliminate some of the central Phoenix traffic hassle by coming from the west to buckeye road centers. It could also work for the LA line haul ...Jump to post
FYI your recent software upgrade broke a highly useful feature. It deleted the "last post" option under the username of the latest poster in a thread, making reading updates in large threads a complete pain in the rear. Please fix this. It's working fine for me.

I think the window for Gateway to play any large role in the Amazon network is closing quickly and will be closed in the next 3-5 years. Amazon is setting the valley operations to be pretty centralized along the 10 and PHX provides that access. With East Cargo actually being available for Cargo ope...Jump to post
It's the old Xtra Airways if I'm not mistaken. You are correct... I think they just bought the AOC, but it is a new company. That's the fast track to your very own airline.

Why can't United take this opportunity to work out a new lease with the MWAA to move at least some of it's operations into gates on the A/ B concourse. The place was a ghost town many times pre-pandemic. They could probably fit a good portion of their domestic operation into the A/B concourse witho...Jump to post
Racist statements will not be tolerated. There won't be warnings. There's nothing wrong with presenting opposing viewpoints, but there's no need for blatantly racist language.
Users should use the report post function to bring things like that to our attention quickly.
The big problem is though Delta never targets DTW for growth. They want to make DTW a O/D heavy market. We you operate flights to places like SJC and SNA once a day you can't compete with ORD that gives you multiple connection opportunities.

Although parts of this are funny, over 500K people in the US alone have died from COVID. Not sure that was the best way to get at the funnier aspects of the post.

Couldn't help but notice that Atlas seems to be flying almost daily to SOF from Hahn and other US Bases.

Flew through IAD yesterday afternoon and found it to be much busier than I expected. KLM, QR, BA, LH, EK, EY, and SK were all on the ground at the time, more than what I had expected.
