They now are seeing the medium sized ones. As Delta withdraws the competition moves in. SWA and Spirit are the latest. Of course SWA is in Alanta we'll have to see how that pans out. MSP is truly becoming nothing more than flyover land. Will the last Mac employee who leaves please shut off the lights to save the tax payers a few pennies after picking up the carnage that Dick leaves.
I hear they are sending even more to Atlanta. Not to worry though... Pinnacle looks like it might be the replacement. Yeah baby now there your moneys worth for all those tax dollars.

Spade,"will the last Mac employee who leaves,please suht off the lights" What an overused and trite comment that is. Is that best remark you can come up with? You are your group are pathetic has beens. You and your group walked out at NWA and you can't handle the fact the airline did better without you.

Spade, look how good RA is really doing. Things have really Improved since nwa locked us out.

Delta B763 at Salt Lake City on Jun 16th 2012, burst tire on takeoff

A Delta Airlines Boeing 767-300, registration N1201P performing flight DL-89 from Salt Lake City, UT (USA) to Paris Charles de Gaulle (France) with 198 passengers, was departing Salt Lake City's runway 34R when tower reported smoke from the left main gear. The aircraft was already in the initial climb when another crew taxiing on a nearby taxiway reported the rubber of a tire had departed the aircraft. The aircraft leveled off at 12,000 feet and dumped fuel. About 80 minutes after departure the aircraft performed a low approach to runway 34R to have ground check how many tires were blown, the aft inboard tire on the left main gear was reported blown, the aircraft climbed back to 12,000 feet to burn off more fuel and landed safely though trailing smoke from the left main gear on runway 34R about 2 hours after departure.

Runway 34R was closed for a number of hours after landing until the wheel was replaced and the aircraft was towed off the runway. The passengers disembarked normally at the gate.

The flight was cancelled, the passengers were rebooked onto other flights.

Delta A319 at Santa Ana on Jun 2nd 2012, engine shut down in flight

A Delta Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N315NB performing flight DL-2388 performing flight DL-2388 from Santa Ana, CA to Minneapolis, MN (USA) with 121 passengers and 5 crew, was in the initial climb out of Santa Ana's runway 19R when the crew reported an engine had been shut down and leveled off at 5000 feet requesting vectors to Los Angeles International Airport, CA. One approach to Los Angeles' runway 25L was pulled off the approach to facilitate the emergency. The A319 landed safely on Los Angeles' runway 25L about 15 minutes after departure, vacated the runway and stopped for a check by emergency services before continuing to the apron.

The FAA reported the engine experienced a compressor stall.

A ground witness reported hearing two loud bangs, an engine emitting streaks of flames before the aircraft disappeared into the clouds.
