As long as AS and AA (domestic at least) are in C/D/N and the foreign oneworld airlines are in S (or will A be possible when the new international arrivals facility opens, in principle sometime this...

Although Cranky Flier indicates (https://crankyflier.com/2020/07/02/american-rallies-around-partner-hubs-in-2021-long-haul-schedule/#comment-1608125) that AA and AS actually negotiated a prorate...

Can the D gates at SEA even accommodate a widebody? Given that arrivals obviously must be at S (or I guess A with the new arrivals facility opening fairly soon), will AA just do all widebody...

I don't even see "manufactured outrage" about Alaska's tail decoration; that implies a fair number of people who are outraged. I see one poster (the OP of this thread) who has asked if "Chester"...

Very much not true. Are there Native Americans who don't care about the Redskins name? Yes. But there is also a very significant number who are offended (49%, compared to 38% "not bothered", in a...

Indeed. It is very much not for any non-Inuit (or at least non-indigenous) person (including me) to say whether Chester is racist.



I think what is quite different is that the Aunt Jemima and...

AA and WS ended their partnership because WS entered a joint venture partnership with DL and ended their other frequent flyer partnerships with US airlines; every indication is that AA would have...

Qantas is a frequent flyer partner of both AA and WS, so based on the wording of the OP I assume this actually is one ticket, albeit an unusual one (since AA and WS are no longer FF partners). And...

Regarding the effect on the partnership, it seems to me that weaker airlines need partners more. As airlines retreat, they can’t be all things to everybody anymore. In AA’s case, their network would...

Well, if you wait until after the fact (ie after you fly the flights), it's AA you contact, not AS. And it's unlikely you'll ever need to call anyone. Anytime (inclusive) between booking and check-in...

Historically, my recollection is that AS hasn't posted a start date or an earning chart before a new partnership commenced. AA is the same for new oneworld members. In both cases, the earning chart...

The 772s and 77Ws are in very different places in their life cycle at AA. It's virtually impossible to imagine them retiring the 77Ws, the oldest of which was delivered new at the end of 2012....

Hasn't that been the plan for years, that American would head to T1 and Virgin America (now AS) would get all of the T2 gates?

No, I think I was unclear. BC's modelling simply guesses/assumes that with the current rules, about 30% of the normal contact happens. It's not like the province says "thou shalt have 30% of thy...

In general, the level of restrictions should be tied to the status of the disease in a given jurisdiction. Any significant amount of travel undermines the ability of local officials and health...

No one is forced to make that choice, but the rest of us are forced to live (or, quite literally, die) with it. My employer is not likely to allow me into the building until September at this point...

That is exactly the attitude that is wrong and dangerous, the absolute worst of DYKWIA and American rugged individualism. The risk isn't to individual travellers; it's the risk to all of us of too...

I assume this means you have had COVID-19 and are now recovered. If so, I'm glad you're well and imagine it may not have been a fun period.

If you're able to be that certain, you should submit the...

I believe the last major US airline to fail (rather than go through chapter 11 reorganization or at least have most of its assets be acquired by another airline in bankruptcy ) was Eastern in 1991....

They’ve already announced, completely unsurprisingly, that they’re postponing the launch from 2020 to 2021. Whether it will actually launch in 2021 is another question. My crystal ball is broken.

Alaska's booking system is very good at handling this situation, in my experience; it's exactly as the OP described. You book the adult's ticket first. Then, when booking the child's ticket, it will...
