Unfortunately, it applies to EVERY Brasilia flight, not just MRY. Due to the increased average passenger weights introduced in the early 2000's, you'd be lucky to see more than 28 passengers on this...

Well, you're not wrong per se. As I understand it, it's a special galley cart that plugs into the airplane. I've never actually seen one myself, though.

UA is retrofitting their E-175s with ovens to serve hot meals, and it's stated in the press releases that these AS flights will serve hot meals, so, yes, they will have ovens.

That depends on cabin configuration. If you go for the default 88 seat single-class configuration, yeah, you'd be seeing a restriction, but with 76 seats in a two class configuration, it'd be fine...

It's operating at ALL risk to themselves. They get all of the revenue of the flight, and pay UA what is in essence a franchise fee to allow it in their network (res, FF).

The E-170 does have slats. The E-175, while a bigger and heavier bird, also has the performance to operate in/out of this airport just fine, even as far as SLC or even DEN. The venerable CRJ-200...

The only major point of contention would be that SIT only has an LDA, which has higher minimums, but even then, it's not much higher than your standard ILS. Besides, it's not like this airline...

There's always the rare passenger that accuse pilots of not performing a run up before takeoff, but I digress.

Occasionally, there's the passenger that breaks the overhead bin door while stuffing...

A jump from 1:35 to 2:20 on a CR7 would mainly just mean added fuel, as there would still be plenty of room for more fuel before hitting either max landing weight, or max takeoff weight. It sounds to...
