  • American Airlines: Expanding Network In China And Modifying Its Fleets [View article]
    Adam you are wrong.

    Do you think they are going to fly these routes for free? True it is an expensive flight, but this is not Wal-Mart selling toothpaste at a loss to draw customer's.
    Cargo is still an important factor especially with the increased load capacity of these aircraft. Seats will be filled, including business & first class greatly supporting the revenue it takes to make money here.

    However, if you really think they are going to lose money on these flights, please write Doug Parker and tell him of your experience in the airline industry before he makes a mistake!

    Cheers...

    iri,

    (New flights do not necessarily translate into higher profits) ??

    AAL is not selling donuts here!

    Full flights "Do" translate into higher profits not to mention the freight & mail they will haul for even more profits! The Asian market is still a very hot market and AAL will reap the benefits. We are not talking a simple Canton, OH to Pittsburgh flight here. Freight & mail alone will easily pay for operation cost everything else is gravy money.

    I agree this is not true in all city pairs, however nearly any Asian/US market will make money.

    Bone,

    Parker is an excellent manager, and relates very well to the employee base. There are some that would disagree with that, but there are some that are.... well, I'll leave that one alone.

  • Report: Microsoft working on free/low-cost Windows 8.1 upgrade [View news story]
    Techy,
    Thanks for the advice, but I did that with w-8. It is still not the same as w-7 user wise there are many differences even though it looks the same.
    I find w-8 a suckers play by Microsoft looking for a way to suck peoples money out of them with their app system and games promotions. A simple example is spider solitaire & chess titian just two of the "free" games from w-7 everyone is familiar with. I looked on the games app for a chess game. One was nothing but advertisements, another a free "trial" another $20.00!

    I don't blame MSFT for wanting to make money but not by a sucker bet to kids & adults!
    Personally I would like to have the option to use 7 or 8/8.1 without having it shoved up my backside. I use a 17" laptop to do my day & swing-trades so I'm out of luck. Could have got a 15" but it gets a bit cramped. However, the 15" with w-7 in it may have to work.

    Thanks again for your insight, I appreciate it!

  • Report: Microsoft working on free/low-cost Windows 8.1 upgrade [View news story]
    No techy, I haven't used 8.1 .... 8.0 is bad enough for me!

    I embrace change, but this system was made for children and I'm not a kid. I prefer performance versus flash.

    I have a new Asus X750 collecting dust because of 8.0, I will use my old HP dv7 until if finishes melting...

    May be time for me to switch over to a Mac.

    "Upgrade for Windows 7 users?"

    What a joke! Windows 8 totally sucks, it is a downgrade not an upgrade!!

  • Airline industry ready for some warmer weather [View news story]
    JetBlue doesn't have the number of daily flights others do to absorb the numbers is all. They take it on the chin a little harder.

    Excellent point!

    This is not a holiday travel season so rebooking passengers is not a big issue, thus higher load factor. Crew scheduling can be an issue, but they are pro's and used to it especially this time of year.

    Mainline crews along with fleet service are awesome people!

  • Southwest Airlines to add more nonstop routes out of Love Field [View news story]
    Stock,
    You are 25 years a commuter pilot or mainline? (Just curious)

    It came out today on Fidelity News per Dow News wire, Mesa just signed a deal until 2021.
    I wish I could give you a direct link address, but there was none. If you like I can attempt a copy and d.m. it to you.
    I am sure Eagle can will hold up their end. They are one of the least of the worries to be contended with. I do not see anyone cutting their own throat on an initial contract with a new operation. That would be foolish on both sides! Again this year will be very interesting!

    As I've stated I hold both LUV & AAL. and will continue to swing-trade and hold long both. The profits right now are stellar with LUV lagging a bit, but I have confidence in their growth.

  • Southwest Airlines to add more nonstop routes out of Love Field [View news story]
    Markcc,

    The initial point here was, "Where are they going" so I replied. Per their news release.
    I was in the airline business 27-years and am quite familiar how airlines operate, so clarity to this persons statement of blaming it on their reservations computer system needed to be brought to up. As far as Southwest's policy on release statements has nothing to do with it, but a very interesting point to be brought up (thanks)! It is amazing how rules & regulations have changes over the last 30+ years.

    The rule you speak of was "pretty much" dissolved with deregulation, and time was needed for the updating & distributing of the Tariff guide, and (OAG) Official Airline Guide, but that is also when the NTSB had a choke hold on restrictions using "fairness" to all as a guide for the sake of competition.

    I am looking forward to Southwest's further success out of Love Field, and hope they expand in the mid-west also!


    Cheers...
