In addition to being the right-capacity aircraft for these routes, I believe the 717 is engineered to withstand a lot of compression/decompression cycles in one day -- supposedly Hawaiian is having...

DL will re-route folks, preferring AF or VS to other carriers. Where that doesn't work, they will use other airlines with whom they have interline agreements. I don't know if DL prioritizes SkyTeam...

I don't think it's a huge problem unless you are in Group 2 and want a ton of time to get up to the desk and still be in "your group." The solution to the problem would likely be to combine groups...

It's pretty much an industry standard, with the exception of Star Alliance airlines where the operating carrier determines earning.

The wording on the oneworld site is pretty clear: under the piece system, OWS gets an extra bag up to a maximum of two. OWE gets an extra bag with no maximum.

I believe they were talking about the possibility of an airside bus at BOS/JFK. I believe they plan to colocate at LGA. The BOS B-C connector should be finished by 2022, but AA is on the far side of...

The CrankyFlyer article that JDiver linked to is great. It does imply towards the end that earning FF miles may likely be limited to BOS/NYC. Now, since a B6 customer might fly BOS-ORD-SLC, I'm not...

The vast majority of US domestic flying is on narrowbody aircraft, which do not require an accessible lavatory under the ACAA. I hope that some point in the next few years, Americans realize that "if...

I see two possibilities:

1. DL is charging VS more (in dollars) for seats, so VS has to raise prices.
2. DL knew about the 60,000 mile sweet spot and pressured/told VS to raise award prices on DL...

Delta has some very smart people doing fleet planning and figuring out the correct sizes of aircraft to have in the fleet -- it's part of the reason they have the 717s in the first place. It can't...

My expectation is that they will still use the same fare classes (e.g. you can book an E fare that relies on underlying V inventory or you can book a V fare) but the adder will increase. It's also...

At least some of the 717s are leased through 2030. My guess is that they are still negotiating with Boeing. The negotiations are going to be vicious... DL is a hard negotiator and Boeing is in a bad...

B6 actually restored their IROPS interline agreement with AA at the beginning of this year, so if something goes wrong... you might end up flying AA in coach!
