Re: Allegiant takes off in new directions

Reading the revues on Airline Quality - it appears this airline suffers from delays and cancellations due to technical problems. Hopefully with recently made aircraft - their unreliable older planes will cease to be.

Re: Airbus opens new Factory in the USA

GarryRF ·
On my frequent visits to Philadelphia from England I always fly with US Airways. Not an exciting experience - just a reliable journey with convenient times. But my last round trip was an amazing transformation. AMERICAN AIRLINES and US Airways have merged and the staff were amazing. The plane was a new Airbus 330 both times. The legroom was more than enough. I usually purchase extra legroom and this time I'm glad I didn't. The food was good and served hot. Free cans of Cola and orange etc.

There's a lot of competition on the TransAtlantic routes, so airlines need to put their best effort into drawing in customers. Just so you know, that's not usually what American is like when you fly it domestically. But I'm glad you had a great experience with them.

Boeing's first 737 MAX hits the runway

PHeymont ·
Boeing rolled out its first 737 MAX this morning. It's the newest version of the 737, and the one the company is betting on to keep its grip on the single-aisle jetliner market. Next step: test flights and certification before the first airline flights in 2017. It's an important milestone for Boeing, which is facing stiff competition for that market from Airbus's A320. Both companies are offering new-generation versions of tried-and-true planes, and the A320neo, MAX's direct competition, has...
