She mentioned something that HP has been having to pay AQ to carry mail/freight that they were unable to get to HNL
|Quoting Jmc1975 (Reply 2):|
The flights are usually weight restricted by 20+ pax every day. Alot of money goes out to bumped passengers who are affected by it. I can't imagine how it will ever be profitable in its current state.
|Quoting Usairways85 (Reply 12):|
Out of curiousity how do they figure out when a plane is overweight while it is on the tarmac at the gate. How do they know when to stop adding paxs and luggage? If a non rev is bumped from the flight do they make sure their bags were taken off the aircraft?
|Quoting TropicBird (Reply 16):|
The flights are weight restricted because the aircraft have MTOW problems due to landing gear certification. It is a paperwork problem, not the gear itself and a permanent solution is in the works.
|Quoting HPRamper (Reply 21):|
Probably because some of the doomsayers were predicting aircraft would be continually full of people cashing in their FlightFund miles and thus not paying for the tickets.
|Quoting CO737800 (Reply 25):|
Since US and HP are one airline cant they put a US767 on the route?
