Re: European expansion in SFO

All three airports are now (or soon to be connected) by BART, so it's possible to fly into one of the three and get to most corners of the Bay, which may explain why all three of them have been getting more and more flights to Asia and Europe. I wish that were true at SJC, but BART will not connect...

Re: British Airways LHR-SJC cancelled flights !

When HSR opens up to San Jose, I'd imagine that will also drive outsized growth at SJC vs. SFO....though to be fair that's far enough out (~10 yrs) so as to be pure conjecture at this point.... I wouldn't bet on that. Most versions of the HSR plans envision a consolidated train station with direct ...

Also, GDS doesn't display SJC as an alternative for San Francisco just like it does display Baltimore for Washington DC....

Re: Air China to reduce Shanghai Pudong-San Jose frequency
