Two words: dumpster fire.

Not literally, but honestly I think I would rather have deal with a literal dumpster fire. Over the last two weeks, you might have noticed the site down, no new content, things going wonky, and our emails not working. If you are reading this, things are getting better — hopefully. I am not 100% confident yet — I have been fooled before.

We were trying to move the site to a new server and I would say things didn’t go well. We have worked hours, and hours, and hours, and hours to try to make it work. To no avail.  I used to love this technology stuff, but now not as much of a fan. I like writing and editing stuff about airplanes a lot more and hopefully I can get back to that soon.

You might have seen a previous post saying if you left a comment, I would mail you some free AirlineReporter.com stickers. The bad news is that post is toast, but the good news is I still have your email addresses. Once my email address is stable, I will reach out. If you didn’t leave a comment previous, but would still like some free stickers — leave a comment and I will make it happen.

This has been bad timing since we have picked up our game this year, providing more content per week than we have the last two years. Have no worries, we have some great content in the hopper and will be getting it out soon. Thank you all for your patience!

David, as a longtime viewer of airlinereporter.com, I appreciate all the hard work that you (and the rest of the contributors) do to keep us informed with interesting articles. Server migrations are definitely challenging.

well, that sucks, any details of what your move entailed? and what were your areas of difficulty?

Would LOVE some stickers, AirlineReporter is the best!

I have been enjoyed reading AirlineReporter since 2010 and have no intention of quitting anytime soon. Go new server!


WordPress is fun. For certain values of “fun”. 😉

I think WordPress is fun for your current host provider — so you won’t leave 🙂


Thanks for an interesting site – hope all your issues resolve themselves soon.

No worries David. This is a great site and you are a great person. Thanks for all you do.
