“With the retirement of the 777, we have made the decision to open two new bases in ATL and LAX. Enhancements to the 350 now allow it to operate key long-haul...

Alright everyone, its been a while since I've posted, but given the NMA delay/taking up the LATAM A350 order, it makes sense to put that I post it here. As of right now, Delta has 33 281 seat...

Thank you everyone. I selected the chicken tandoori. I'll be back with a full report on how everything went. I booked this flight a while ago and never expected to have the pre-order. Question is...

Yes, I happily received it.

Anyone else recommending the tandoori chicken? On a side note, can United offer a Western option?

Does anyone know when the pre-ordering will become available? I see on the website, pre-orders will be available beginning 5 days before the flight until 24 hours. Also, any chance we’ll be able to...

I figured as much in regards to the CRJ-700 flight. I don't care for these planes as they are basically a stretched version of the devil's chariot, the CRJ-500, only with a cabin upfront. My rule is...

The domestic 777s and pmUA 777-200ER aircraft are PW engines, which in the case of the ERs, has limited their MTOW. The GE powered 777-200ERs that were delivered to CAL are rated at 656,000 MTOW,...

Easy answer in all caps. NONE. ZIP. ZILCH. ZERO. Unless the Japanese economy enters a severe recession, all are staying. Why? First of all, no nighttime slots. The nighttime flights primarily killed...

Before Delta submitted the application I was certain they would apply for ATL/DTW/SEA/PDX using a mix of 772/A350/A339neo aircraft and either JFK-HND or HNL-HND. Well, it should be clear now that...

After all of Delta's reductions, they still fly PDX-NRT. Why? Its the largest O&D international route ex-PDX and there is no competition. Makes little sense to cut it. If ANA or JAL announced a...

This is it for NRT. Delta will just four of the twelve slots to exit NRT entirely. I expect them to apply for six and receive five. DTW/ATL/SEA-HND are all a given, no debate there. I would be...

This is correct. The RR powered aircraft can also haul the full 656k. Delta’s eight 777-200ERs are rated at 656k. With more 789/78J/77Ws on the way, in addition to international expansion, the first...

The 777-300ER has a good bit more range than 656,000 MTOW 777-200ER, which are either GE powered or RR powered. Take EWR-HKG as an example. CX used to fly their higher density 777-300ER HKG-EWR...

After closing trading the stock is up more than 5%. Best financial year for United in a long time. There were rumours of more 77Ws. Bringing the fleet to 22 fully replaces the 747s in terms of...

I think TPG meant sCO 777s will be undergoing Polaris mods as the 787-10s take over six EWR-Europe routes. The sUA fleet will finish next year while its probably going to be 2020 when the sCO fleet...

3) Parker and gang are not alone in downsizing J in order to match paid capacity. In fact I'd argue Delta has gone much farther than AA in pairing down J in order to sell J seats rather than fill the...

As I stated earlier, Delta made a huge error in making SEA a West Coast Asia hub while they could have done so in LAX. (Richard wanted SEA, Ed wanted LAX, and we're seeing the results of that.) If...

A minor milestone here as this would have been the last 737-900ER of the original order for 100 737-900ERs placed back in 2011. In June 2015, Delta was going to order 40 more aircraft, along with...
