JetBlue uses 'laptops' (LPC) on their A320s, I don't know if they have them on the E190s

I will agree with this; Vegas is a unique issue; I haven't seen many airports with holding pads for them to pull into. Outside of the one adjacent to taxiways B and C (which I think C was just extended), there are 8 other pads there. But you're right; they are generally ready to go when they come up to the runway, but when they have to deal with flow or get their numbers if they don't already have them, they can pull into there.

Any other airports with pads like this? It's easily labeled on KLAS' airport diagram.

There are others with run up pads.  Go to www.airnav.com to pull up other airport diagrams.  Start with ORD and their famous "penalty boxes."

3 questions.

1.  Why do Southwest Airlines flights seem to always have their numbers?

2.  Why don't other airlines adopt the Southwest system?  It seems to be working.

3.  How often do you think these "delays for numbers" are blamed on "ATC delays?"

Just thinking outloud.

1: Good old pencil and paper... (Southwest uses computers for W&B now, simple PCs at airport OPS)

2: Why use pencil and paper if you have an overloaded central mainframe? huh Delegating trust to remote employees... *YUCK*

3: I've heard "we're waiting on some paperwork" several times in the plane. grin Had a "We have a one hour delay due to ATC computer failure today."  sad

Two relevant links to the Southwest blog:

MathFox,

Thanks for the links.  That's just what I was looking for.  SWA just keeps it simple.
