Crew Planner John Bumanglag’s D position pairings and the AFA 3 position pairings were selected for April.
There is a schedule change on April 6th and also Mexico Daylight Saving Time starts on that day. You may note minor flight time changes on this date. Another Schedule change happens April 27th. Some seasonal warm destination flights end for the season on these dates. More detail below.
Here are comments specific to each base.
SEA– High time turns continue to MSP/MCI/TUS/ and DFW. Also STL goes back to a turn starting April 6th. Popular two day trips to PHL/FLL/EWR/BOS and DCA continue daily. SJD and PVR nonstops run through April 26 before ending for the season. Long MCO layovers are frequent. Long KOA layovers 3 days/week as well.
PDX– Two day trips to BOS and DCA operate daily. AM LAS turn, mid AM PHX and DFW turn run daily as well. PDX loses KOA and LIH nonstops April 27th until next November. OGG all nighter goes from daily to 3 days/week April 27th.
ANC– HNL and ORD nonstops continue daily. Overall TFP looks good. ANC loses OGG and KOA nonstops April 5th for the season.
LAX– BUR has a nice variety of trip lengths and Hawaii layovers are frequent. LAX-YVR turn 703/702 is back daily! DCA two day and high time Mexico turns continue. SNA turns continue as well.
SAN– BOS two days run daily. OGG will really be a two day starting April 6th. HNL continues to release after midnight so is one day longer than it appears.
