Okay, I'll stop all the guessing: It's Saipan (near Guam). Thanks for playing!

I saw a couple of planes with the "new" livery when I went to George Bush (IAH) the other day. It looks disgusting.

Delta may introduce premium coach seats
Option could give international fliers perks for low cost. Expert: It would be a competitive move.
6 November 2010
The Atlanta Journal - Constitution
http://www.ajc.com/business/delta-ma...um-724233.html

Passengers on some Delta Air Lines international flights might be able to buy a bit more legroom without paying business-class fares if the carrier launches a premium coach section to compete with some rivals.

Delta has reportedly posted information on an internal website about plans to launch premium economy class next year on planes that fly long international routes.

"We are always evaluating product offerings and look forward to improving the customer experience, but we have made no announcements at this time," said Delta spokesman Kent Landers.

The concept of offering a few rows of premium coach seating --- with more legroom, early boarding or other perks --- has kicked around the industry for years. One carrier offering it is United Airlines, which just surpassed Delta as the world's largest after its merger with Continental Airlines.

United has a section called Economy Plus, for domestic as well as overseas flights, that offers about 5 inches more legroom than regular economy class seats. United allows its elite frequent fliers to sit in the section at regular coach fares, while other passengers can pay anywhere from $9 to $159 to upgrade, depending on the flight.

United also sells packages, such as its premiere package, which starts at $47 and includes an Economy Plus upgrade along with two checked bags, use of a premiere check-in area and security line where available and early boarding. If Delta adds a premium economy section, "It's a smart move, it really is," said Henry Harteveldt, a travel analyst with Forrester Research. It "allows Delta to narrow the competitive gap."

Through its acquisition of Continental, United now has a massive hub in Newark that competes with Delta's Kennedy International hub for lucrative international passengers.

Premium economy seats would enable Delta to bring in more revenue and make customers more loyal, Harteveldt said. A number of international carriers also offer premium economy sections on long-haul flights, including Delta joint venture partners Air France and KLM.

"As Delta looks at the competitive landscape, they see United coming in," Harteveldt said. "They need to take this move as a way to defend their position," and as an offensive move to steal market share from other carriers such as American, he said.

Here is some updates about the SW/AT purposed marriage.


Southwest Airlines Co. and AirTran Airways are still trying to gain government approval to complete their merger.

Both airlines have received a customary, second request for information from the U.S. Department of Justice, which is reviewing the merger to see if it will be given DOJ clearance.

Both parties said they are in the process of gathering information to meet the DOJ’s demands.

The transaction still has to be approved by AirTran shareholders and the DOJ. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2011 after all approvals have been granted.

Southwest is the largest carrier at Tampa International Airport with nearly 33 percent market share. AirTran has 7.76 percent market share at TIA.

Dallas-based Southwest (NYSE: LUV) announced plans to buy Orlando-based AirTran (NYSE: AAI) earlier this year as a strategy to expand its footprint in the low-cost carrier market.

Southwest will inhert planes from AirTran when they finally tie the knot. AirTran flies to multiple cities in Carribean. They go from ATL to the Carribean on AirTran. That is one of the reasons of the merger/buyer deal. Latin America is still a possible. It would be nice to introduce the Southwest effect to Latin America but I dont think it will happen in the next five or so years. Stay tune for details and stay flying. Numbers are up (in all categories) and so are the airfares. So buy your tickets now.

Continental shifts to United's terminal at O'HareTicketing, check-in operations begin in Terminal 1 on Tuesday, but not all services integrated yet

By Julie Johnsson, Tribune reporter
7:45 p.m. CST, November 11, 2010

..........The moves are part of one of the largest reshuffling of gates and counters in O'Hare's history, which soon could open the door to new competitors such as Virgin America, which has been trying to gain entry to the airport since 2008.

It also is one of the first changes visible to travelers as United and Continental begin to meld their complex operations into the world's largest airline. Both carriers are wholly owned subsidiaries of United Continental Holdings Inc., the Chicago-based corporate parent company created with their Oct. 1 merger.

The new United has begun repainting its 708-jet fleet with its new livery, stamping Continental's globe on their tails and splashing United's new sans-serif brand across a white fuselage. Continental and United flight operations, however, won't be combined until the carrier obtains a single operating certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, a process it expects to complete by late 2011.

The merged carrier hasn't revealed many of the onboard features that will be available to passengers, like whether the new United will offer the roomier Economy Plus seating in all of its jets, sell first-class seats on international flights or continue to feature George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" as its calling card.

Continental's ticket counters and kiosks will stay around until the carrier fully integrates its two reservation systems in the spring of 2011, airline officials said. The massive undertaking involves information technology at the heart of the airline's operations, and any large glitches can cause kiosks, Web sites or reservation systems to fail, potentially inconveniencing thousands of passengers.

"That's a real nail-biter," aviation consultant Robert Mann said.

Continental shifted its departures at O'Hare to gates B-1 through B-4 in United's terminal in June 2009, as it prepared to enter the Star Alliance, a global marketing partnership co-founded by United. Since then, Continental has moved its operations closer to its Star Alliance partners in many markets, including Denver, Detroit, Honolulu, Orlando, Fla., Toronto, Frankfurt, Tokyo/Narita, Beijing and Barcelona, Spain...........

MORE NEW SCHEDULES--ALL THE WAY INTO JUNE 2011!

This morning we're opening our schedule for reservations out through June 3, 2011. Time to go see Mumsey for Mother's Day--or celebrate the unofficial start of summer by scheduling a Memorial Day weekend jaunt! Either way, schedules are now available, and (of course) we have a few changes to tell you about.

First, let's talk about what's *not* in this Schedule. Earlier this year, Southwest announced our plans to begin service in the first quarter of 2011 at two airports in the Palmetto State, Greenville/Spartanburg and Charleston,( they already have see up in previous thread posts) and we're still on track to do so. We're just not quite finished with the schedules as of yet. Believe me, you'll read it from me here on "Nuts!" just as soon as those schedules are released--so check back often for updates!

As for the changes that *are* in this schedule, it's a mixed bag of plusses and minuses. We're not quite as busy in late April and in May as we are in March, so this schedule overall contains slightly less flying, a net decrease (for now!) of 22 flights. Three leisure markets are seasonally eliminated (between Ft. Myers and both Islip and Nashville, and between Hartford and West Palm Beach). On the plus side, we're bringing back some of our seasonal summer markets--roundtrip nonstops between Seattle and Baltimore/Washington, Kansas City, and Nashville, nonstops between Nashville and Providence, and nonstop Norfolk-Las Vegas service. None of these tweaks, either up or down, are huge. You can get all of the details in the attached .pdf file!

And for a final little sidebar....remember a couple of years ago when I blogged about how we manage inventory by putting little "chunks" out at a time? You guys flamed me SO badly for Network Planning letting the amount of bookable inventory get down to under 100 days for the Summer Travel season (the piece received nearly 300 responses, most of them mad at me!), that I subsequently posted that we would do our best to put more and more inventory out for you to book. Well, this schedule takes us out to 239 days of inventory--the most we've ever had! The overarching reason we've made this change (admittedly, in baby steps, but good things take time!) is because you, our Customers, have told us that's what you wanted. So that's what we've done!

Stay tune to both because I will have update as soon as they are posted.

Big News for Denver

Southwest is adding routes to CHM (Port of Coulmbus OH), PIT (Pittsburgh), JAX (Jacksonville). Routes begin June 5 of next year. They are also expanding the booking system to. Happy Thanksgiving Travels.
Here is the offical press release.
Southwest announces 3 new routes, record booking windowComments 4

Southwest Airlines says it is adding three new routes from Denver, news that comes as the carrier today unveiled its schedule for the summer of 2011.

Beginning June 5, the carrier will add one daily round-trip flight between Denver and Columbus (Ohio), Jacksonville (Fla.) and Pittsburgh.

Once those flights begin, Southwest will fly 150 daily nonstop flights from Denver to 45 destinations, the airline says in a press release. Southwest notes it re-started Denver service in January 2006 with just 13 daily departures to three destinations.

Bill Owen, Southwest's Lead Planner in the airline's Schedule Planning Department, adds more background on the summer schedule via Southwest's corporate Nuts About Southwest blog.

Owen writes on the blog that Southwest is "now accepting reservations all the way out until August 12, 2011 -- nearly 270 days of bookable inventory. That's the most we've EVER had available for sale!!!"

And, Owen adds that "for a change" with its latest season schedule, no nonstop city-pairs are being dropped from the carrier's schedule. Overall, Owen says Southwest will be adding 54 flights a day to its network

Delta to boost international flights in 2011
17 November 2010

ATLANTA (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc said Tuesday it plans to offer more international flights, especially to Asia and Europe, in spring and summer 2011 in a bid to gain more business travelers.

The carrier said it was offering special introductory fares on new international routes for which tickets must be bought no later than Nov. 30.

Delta said its most significant expansion would be in Asia, where it has seen revenue growth of more than 50 percent. The carrier said it applied with the U.S. Transportation Department to start new flights to Beijing and Guangzhou in China, and will expand service to Manila, Philippines.

The company said it also would resume nonstop service to Shanghai from Atlanta next year, a route that had been suspended in 2009 as tough economic conditions hurt travel demand.

Atlanta-based Delta has moved to strengthen its presence in high-growth markets in an effort to capture lucrative corporate customers as the economy improves.

Its statement Tuesday cited "double-digit revenue growth in most every international business market" over the last year.

In August, Delta received approval for a $1.2 billion upgrade of its operations at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, a move it said was essential to luring corporate travelers as it builds a major hub in New York.

But it also faces competition for international business travelers from U.S. rivals such as the newly merged United Continental Holdings, which displaced Delta as the world's largest airline earlier this year.

For Europe, Delta's new offerings include more flights between London's Heathrow Airport and the United States, and the carrier also said it will launch its first service to Reykjavik, Iceland.

The company also said its capacity will rise 1 percent to 3 percent next year and added it will end this year with 91 fewer planes than in 2009.

Shares of Delta fell 11 cents to $13.09 at mid-afternoon as many other U.S. airline stocks slid. The Arca Airline index was off 1.3 percent.

Detroit gains direct flight to Beijing, pending approval:

If approved, the route to China's capital would be the seventh new long-haul international route that Delta has added from Detroit in two years, the airline said. Beijing would be the 20th international airport that Delta serves nonstop from Detroit.

2nd Delta plane makes emergency landing
Posted: 22 November 2010 1433 hrs

WASHINGTON: A Delta Air Lines plane en route to Los Angeles from Atlanta was forced to turn around and make an emergency landing due to engine problems, local television reported.

Fox5 News quoted aviation officials as saying Delta Flight 125, which took off from Hartsfield Jackson International Airport in Atlanta around 6:10 pm Sunday (2310 GMT), had to turn back when one of the engines failed.

The tail of the Boeing 767 scraped the runway upon landing, but no injuries were reported, the TV station said.

The plane, which had 262 passengers aboard, reported issues with the air ducts to one of the engines, according to the report.

After the flight landed safely, all the passengers were put on another plane which continued without further delays to Los Angeles, Fox5 News said.

The incident marked the second emergency landing for a Delta Boeing 767 jet in one day.

Earlier, a Moscow-bound passenger plane with 204 people on board made an emergency landing back in New York after developing an engine problem shortly after takeoff, aviation officials said.
