I haven't heard anything but we usually announce a city MONTHS before we start occupying the space.

Now THAT......would be......FAN....TASTIC. Wow, if that is true, those long afternoon delays will really back up their 6 leg days down to BWI, ORF, JAX, PBI, and onto BNA and STL......FUN!

Getting paid to sit in a conga line is the easiest money I've ever made. $200 an hour to read the paper is my kind of living.

I am sure the SWA pilots would appreciate the long delays at JFK - they would help them rest from the previous 30-minute turns they flew that day...

Base pay is calculated on the MILE with additions for known delays etc. If we go over schedule we get 1/10 credit every 5 minutes over we go.

For example you could have the same leg pay differently depending on time of day. PHL/PVD for one. I've been paid over an hour extra on that leg.

More complicated than pay by the mile but mostly correct. 12 minutes overfly and then its another 10th of trip-for-pay every 5 minutes. Again, much more complicated than this.

Aren't you worried about how it will affect your delays?

Sounds like a good rumor to start, in fact I thought the same thing when I saw it the other day. Word from the higher ups is that they are cleaning it up a little to get ready for a movie shoot.

We shall see

Actually, the Southwest signage is only in place at T6 for a movie shoot next week. The movie is supposed to be called "Going the Distance" starring Drew Barrymore. That's it, just Hollywood fluff...

I Do not think SWA is going to JFK.
I see that Southwest Airlines is ending service from PHL-CMH & PHL-SAT on November 1. Is USAirways a tough competitor in PHL? Is Southwest finally retreating in PHL? They already quit PHL-OAK, PHL-BDL & PHL-LAX.
WN has already gotten a good taste of LGA and they having only one gate is giving them occasional headaches. I know someone who was on a WN flight that landed at LGA several hours late to be told we are number 3 for a gate which sucks with 1 gate, I think that flight only waited about 90 mins.

Our average turn time is 25 minutes on paper. We still have a few 15 minute turns in LBB, AMA, TUL, SAT and ABQ...and a few more small places. We have many more 20 min turns in lots of places. Most of the ones I have seen are 25 min. Although, seeing a lot more 30 lately.

They build so much time into the PHL, SFO, LGA legs I bet they'd do the same for JFK, if true. Not that that would help on a 3 hour ground stop.

Nothing like looking out the window on a ground stop and seeing the General's ugly mug looking at a canyon blue red belly money maker wishing he could fly to LBB. It would be priceless!
