Suggest the MODS put the flame up on this thread and make it sticky, I be loving it, so to join in....


1. WN is closing its operations at DAL and moving in the dead of night to DFW
2. The extra width of the A320 over the 737 can be seen from outside and felt inside
3. Airbus planes by design cannot go 10 abreast, its an impossibility I tell you.....
4. Additional sales of the A380 are just around the corner that is approaching in the next 10001 9999 9998 9997
5. BA is going all economy
6. WN is now a legacy because they are no longer an oil company hedging their bets
7. FBW will eventually be used by Boeing under license from Airbus
8. The third law of Airbus a/c no longer conflicts with the first law as it was replaced by alternate law
9. The 747 reigns supreme
10. MIA is to the rest of the world what MIA is to the rest of the world
11. Airlines actually choose the superior a/c
12. Airbus will cease giving away a/c
13. Boeing will commence taking orders from non-premium carriers
15. FR is the most hated carrier in the EU and no one in their right mind flies on them

and finally, the 757 is Go*** I mean FISH

1.) Miami. The demand for premium service there is simply unlike anything the world has ever seen. Also it has 600 PDEW to everywhere in the world, including Edmonton which is why that will be a perfect scissors hub to connect Miami to Asia, unless American starts MIA-NRT which is launching "any day now" since 2004.

2.) Miami. You're a complete fool if you think it doesn't deserve a second mention. It's definitely not just a city where the 1% of every South American nation likes to hide its money. To suggest that is simply an insult. Walk down Collins Boulevard in Miami Beach and you'll literally be tripping over the premium demand oozing from every doorway! Also, 600 PDEW to everywhere and now it's also time to argue about how large the metro area is!

3.) FLL is for trash yields and scum who don't dress nicely enough to use MIA. Except that it's part of the metro Miami area (which is DEFINITELY larger than Boston's metro area!) so it is also oozing with premium demand. Just not as much of it! But still a lot!

4.) International service to MCO was just started because Aer Lingus and Emirates and Icelandair didn't have planes with the right level of luxury for Miami. But they will start Miami soon.

- Richard Anderson is literally god.

- Pax choose their tickets by price, price and only price.....except when they choose it based on the airline's profitability (I mean everyone knows that passengers prefer Delta over Virgin America because Delta offers superior ROI + higher margins + frequent dividends). Airport/schedule/airline/equipment have literally no impact on their purchasing decision.

- Airbus is only around to satisfy the egos of EU governments.

- Milan Malpensa has literally no future because everyone prefers Linate since its so much closer to the city.

- Literally all of Emirates' routes are loss making. Emirates actually fly only a few passengers and the whole operation is just a big accounting conspiracy by the UAE government.

- When my local airline orders Airbuses not Boeings, the appropriate course of action is to write to my senator and get them to open into an investigation the affair, because Airbus must have bribed the airline's ceo for them to have ordered such crappy planes.

- Airbus never does any innovation ever, they just copy Boeing.

- It is literally impossible to make any money with Airbus A340s/A380s. All airlines who claim to are state subsidised and reporting phoney numbers.

- Airbus's fly-by-wire and flight-envelope-protections are literally the worst thing since cancer and are the biggest killer in aviation.

- Pax hate the comfortable seats, nice meals and new aircraft of the ME3.

- The 767-400ER is literally the greatest thing in all of aviation (that's why there's so many of them around, right?). Anyone who voices a contrary opinion will be hearing from my lawyer. Oh and so will airliners.net

- Delta buys used planes which makes them really, really innovative. Noone's ever tried that before.

Quoting AngMoh (Reply 53):
Once you fly a 77W, it is profitable regardless of route, operations or anything else

Haha...i've been laughing for an hour reading this.

My favorite themes; some have been posted but repeating them validates that we see similar patterns.

1. Everyone on A.NET is a CFA and is masterful in evaluating airline financial statements.
2. Which ever metric best helps me make my point is also the single best metric - especially "GAAP Net Income ex-specials"
3. Doug Parker is turning AA from a 5 star airline into a LCC.
4. All good/bad at United is either the credit/fault of the Continental executive team or the legacy UA surrly flight attendants
5. Delta is God's gift to airlines and the traveling public. It can do no wrong.
6. Delta is the devil incarnate, not a single thing they do deserves any credit and always should be criticized.
7. UAL hates LAX and is rapidly pulling out.
8. Delta will fail in SEA because SEA loves local companies and no single Alaska frequent flyer will ever consider flying Delta
9. Seatback entertainment is clearly superior to wifi entertainment and everyone uses it
10. No one uses seatback entertainment anymore because everyone has tablets
11. The following hubs will close: CLT, PHX, SLC. IAD
12. AA does not need PHL and JFK
13. The entire traveling public pays very close attention to the plane they fly and the hard product / amenities. No one will choose to fly an older plane (what about the relative humidity!).
14. The Delta refinery is stupid and will never make money
15. The Delta refinery is brilliant and has only improved profit and margin
16. Unions are the anti-christ and are fully to blame for poor financials. They are also no longer needed as corporations are kind, thoughtful beings that would never screw over a worker to save a buck.
17. Unions are always completely rational and have never taken an unreasonable stance.
BOS-LGA-JFK | A:319/20/21, 332/3, 346 || B:717, 735, 737, 738, 739, 752, 753, 762, 763, 764, 787, 772, 744 || MD80, MD90

EWR-PHL is 80mi straight line and probably around 2 hour of road driving. If you take SEPTA+NJT it's easily 2.5 hours if not more.

The leakage is hardly material other than the most price conscious cohort.

And don't forget that AA PHL is larger than UA EWR, so there's plenty of feed to support such a service if they actually have the desire to launch.

The ideal FA candidate for a US legacy carrier is a blue haired elderly lady whose veins in her legs are as blue as her hair. The US legacies actively recruit at retirement homes.

Airbus has adopted the use of GPS guided lasers to realize the perfect alignment of carpet fibers to satisfy the maniacal whims of the QR CEO.

CX pays senior pilots to come on to a.net and correct the posts of flight simming armchair CEOs.

The only way for US LCCs and legacies to increase profits is to fit less comfortable chairs and charge for everything they can, including toilet paper.

The best way to solve Boston's traffic issues is to close BOS and rely on MHT, PVD and ORH for the area's aviation needs.

MKE needs more service as it is an untapped/underserved market
ORD needs A380 gates tomorrow so that BA, EK, LH, KE and UA's always impending future order will have a place to put them
LHR will never have that 3rd runway
The US legacies should give up 50% of their gates/slots at their major city hubs so that WN can start new service to MDW/DAL and BWI. This will bring good competition.
UA dragged down CO
CO was the world's best airline until they merged with UA
PHX will be dehubbed soon by AA
LAX is 100% O/D
Americans are crazy for wanting frequency vs double daily A380s on ORD-LGA

The most common passenger "type" is the "know it all' who knows nothing.

Pajamas and bare feet are really the most fashionable way to travel.

Fa's REALLY DO care when you pout for the entire flight because you didn't get that dried out piece of chicken you dreamed of.

Everyone on A.net is really qualified to be an airline CEO.

and my favorite: A.net is really NOT a forum for airline enthusiasts, yet a place for bitter, airline "wannabees" to come and pretend they work for an airline.

MCO is a dump that no one wants to go to given its proximity to Heaven (MIA), except for crazy Disney fans which is why they have the code MCO for Mickey Mouse.

BR's Hello Kitty service is bleeding money because it's a stupid idea and the fact that so many Asians love Hello Kitty makes no difference.

Only taxi time from the city center to the airport determines convenience, because only the plebs take public transportation.

DL wants to bring the Spirit of St. Louis back into commercial service because it's in better shape than their MDs.

People only want day flights transcon and redeyes TATL, no exception. Domestic redeyes violate the Geneva Convention. If bankers had taken more redeyes JFK LHR instead of wasting time watching movies on day flights, there would have been no financial crisis.

1. BA has never and will never use GE engines
2. The French on the other hand will never use RR
3. The RR triple spool is the most economical engine around
4. The GE-90-115 has too many shut downs that it affects ETOPS standards
5. Polar flights must be flown by a/c with 4 engines
6. The hair dryers on the A340 have finally been replaced by real engines
7. The A320 props were feathered thus allowing the Hudson landing
8. Concorde never super cruised, burners all the way baby
9. The GTF has rendered all other engines obsolete, GE is trying a LEAP of faith
10. Engines are to be tested with non-frozen birds, frozen can create discrepancies in the data gathered.

Not an engine guy so must rely on my A.Net experts.

Defrosting them is the order of the day for windshield tests as well.

2.) Miami. You're a complete fool if you think it doesn't deserve a second mention. It's definitely not just a city where the 1% of every South American nation likes to hide its money. To suggest that is simply an insult. Walk down Collins Boulevard in Miami Beach and you'll literally be tripping over the premium demand oozing from every doorway! Also, 600 PDEW to everywhere and now it's also time to argue about how large the metro area is!

Since this is strictly a "Fact Based" thread we need to make sure the facts are correct:
IT'S NOT Collins Boulevard IT'S Collins Avenue.

And yes Mildred ALL AIRLINES have no clue how to run an airline.

BOS getting all those new Asian services is a bubble. PHL has at least the same amount of local demand to Asia than BOS. If it was not because EWR being so close to Philadelphia and everybody driving there to catch a flight, PHL would have at least the same amount of Asian services than BOS.

Also, the US carriers never gave BOS any attention and one of them should have made it a hub.

DEN and PHX should be shutdown, because DFW is the one true airport.
The A380 will do just fine, as long as Airbus makes it bigger and more expensve.
American carriers should be avoided at all cost.
F9 will be bought by B6 or WN.
But not before it goes bankrupt.
