Re: Sabena still alive in Shangai?

In the U.S., this kind of thing is pretty common too. I haven't seen Sabena anywhere here, but the Swissair name and logo seems to soldier on in some airport signage. Phoenix's terminal 3 is legendary for this, where you'll still see the names "Midwest Express," "American Trans Air", and I think "Mi...

Re: Delta: PHX-MSP-GRB on 738 and DC-9 (Part II)

André, Delta has done a lot of mixing of the pre-merger DL and NW fleets, especially on narrowbody craft. A lot of the A319/A320 flying moved to Atlanta and Salt Lake City. In the case of SLC, I've heard that the Airbusses' better range played a big role. With MSP and DTW being centrally located, th...

Re: Delta: GRB-MSP-PHX on DC-9 and A320

Thanks for the kind words, André! It's very nice to be back here - I always feel like I learn something new! And, if I can pass along some info, that's a bonus! How is catering these days on the DL flights? Have most of the NW planes been repainted in DL colours? DL catering is pretty comparable to ...

Delta: GRB-MSP-PHX on DC-9 and A320

Hi all! It's been an ETERNITY since I posted here, so I thought I'd give you folks something nice to read... a trip report involving a DC-9! :D This trip was to my most common destination, Phoenix, AZ, to visit my family in June. It also gave me the chance to experience the "new Delta" for the first...

This is great news! I'm sure the A340 (-500 and/or -300) will look amazing in US colors. It will be great to see US expand international service out of PHX, which has been desperately needed for several years. I know it is frustrating for Phoenix passengers to have to make a connection on to an inte...

Replies: 18
Views: 2528

Well, I know I'm going to be hated for saying this, but what about the CR7 CR9 and CR10?

They would be much cheaper (and more fuel efficient) than the Embraer family. However, the EMB-195 could replace the 733 (and the -170 for the Avros), so this will probably be the choice.

Agreed. The A340 will be a good fit at US. My only concern would be hot & high performance in Phoenix and Las Vegas. The A340 (-300) already has a hard enough time making it off of the ground when it is cold. I am not sure how the A340 would perform in the desert heat. Hopefully, it wouldn't be weig...

That would be cool! I'd love to see an American carrier with the A340 (even though I am a Boeing man).

It makes good business sense, too. I am sure US could get a good deal on these aircraft, and it would give them the growth that they need quickly.

With the new CRJ-1000 coming out, plus competition from Embraer, the Russian Regional Jet (RRJ), and even the A318 (to a certain extent), I just don't see much of a market for the F-70 and F-100 anymore. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see these beautiful aircraft grace the skies again, but I ha...

Well, since it is voluntary, I can't say that I am opposed to it. I, for one, would never walk through this x-ray machine, but if you want to do it, I guess that's your purogative.

Very nice! I had a chance to fly on a US 737 (a -300) in the new livery in November. They look even better in person.

For some reason, it seems that the aircraft with pointier noses look the best in the new livery. I am sure the A330 will look great!

Right... Because the problem with the CRJ900 was that it wasn't long enough. The consumers will love this airplane! :roll: Why would the customers dislike the fact that it is long? I can understand the width being an issue, but there is no reason why a customer would want the aircraft to be shorter...
