ORD/ATL/DTW are materially shorter stages than JFK, and probably also have lower ATC contingency fuel reserves.

Yes, IAD is a dump (C/D).

At the end of the day, does it really matter *that* much? (Compared to spending billions on a new concourse?)

They didn't exactly PAY him $50M, he cashed in options he was granted when the stock was a lot lower. Its (possibly excessive) but at least long-term comp. (And, though its an accounting entry,...

I doubt 2-3 years from now anyone will be worried about the MAX. Boeing will keep selling them and keep building them. Just like almost nobody today thinks about the 787 battery fires.

its definitely a high $$$ area, there's lots of people going between NY and OC.

I much prefer SNA over LAX and when I'm in the area, its usually to OC, not LA. I wish AC brought back YYZ-SNA.

It looks like the newest ones are ~12/13 years old so practically toddlers as far as LY goes.

based on NYC787's data, it looks like EDM is about 3 months away and EDN (the first 788) about 3 months after that, with 3 more 788 to follow in the next few months after that.
