Most of that shrinkage occurred before Parker. Just saying Parker, to me, hates NYC for airline ops He ran US at LGA into the ground.

Im the Captain. My plane, my rules. Dont like it, you’re gone. The check on that power...I have to answer for that...potentially with my job if I make a foolish decision.

Just to correct some misconceptions on this thread: 1 JFK is not LHR. There are slots available. A divert would not need to borrow a slot 2 T1 has space and T4 is the de facto overflow for any airline 3 EWR 29 is a circle approach. VOR or RNP JFK 13 L or R is absolutely NOT a circling approach.

Airline HQ in expensive cities B6, UA, AS are always in danger in an industry that is always battling costs. Maybe not at the moment, but the next BK or downturn or fuel spike or whatever. There are too many factors that could effect an airline, the margins (historically) too thin, that cost cutting...Jump to post
But the problems stem from the lack of a central planning and engineering authority. Instead of giving a large contract to an experienced company, they literally told company A to install some stuff, then they employed company B, then C and then D and in the end, nothing worked together. They had 3...Jump to post

Anything NYC and North is further east (longitude wise) than anything south of NYC. So it isnt CLT.
If they are served nonstop from SLC: PWM BOS (focus/hub) PVD BDL. Then PHL BWI DCA IAD

No actually. this whole thread tells the tale of Cuba not being overly successful from United States. That’s why there’s a bunch of vacant slots And legacies wanting to fill those slots with outsourced 50 seaters. Anyone can tell you it will work from Florida (especially Miami). Just can’t seem to w...Jump to post
That is a BS answer and you guys are falling for it hook line and sinker. The route is currently flying and AB had 3 or 4 JFK slots. LH is now a monopoly airline. They have no interest Flying you anywhere but Frankfurt and Munich. Hopefully another airline will start the route. But dont fall for slo...Jump to post
The “failure” route was mentioned in one of the cities you listed. Just follow what airlines are doing specifically cutting back to once a week service. tells the tale wellJump to post
Im a regular flier to HAV. The flights are empty. Beyond empty. In 15 years of flying, ive never seen such low load factors consistently on any route.
Why anyone would fight for these slots is beyond me.
I Think you could see JetBlue and British Airways partner, not their flying, but in real estate. And yes you are correct New York State is coordinating this. That has been what has been missing at Kennedy and LaGuardia for 70 years. We now have an active governor wants a unified LaGuardia… It is bei...Jump to post

Sorry it is behind a paywall. B6, TOGA, JFKIAT, BA are all looking to expand their terminal presence while meeting Gov Cuomo’s vision of a unified airport. Apparently there could be fights brewing for the T6 site/T7 and the T2/T3 site. Intersting read and (hopefully) exciting future for JFK https://...Jump to post
Storm was a dud that was forecast wrong all around. there was a jackpot area in NW NJ that saw 2 feet, but everyone else underwhelmed in terms of forecast 12 hours earlier...regardless of rain/snow line.

The 321 LR range has always been an issue. Ive said it time and time again. Ive been told im anti-airbus...but im just reporting what flight ops has told us. You could safely go south from the US. The problem is with Europe and winter winds with a full load and an alternate needed. How often will it...Jump to post
Yes. Unless you dont want to have anything more than 1 flight a day from a coastal city, you need a mid continent hub to serve the whole middle section of the country with any frequency. DSM can have a daily flight to LGA or EWR, but the bulk of its traffic goes on thru-the-day service to places lik...Jump to post
This, in my opinion, was Jetblues biggest mistake. You didn’t even need the main terminal. Say JetBlue goes to the city and says we want to build a 10 gate concourse for starters. Dirt cheap, mid continent hub and airline and city grow together. A stupid, missed opportunity 10 years ago. Perhaps the...Jump to post
I wouldnt call it slot squatting.
Cutting 6x JFK PHL and spreading the slots around is a smart use of slots.
It is obvious AA no longer wants to use slots to fly intl from JFK beyond what it has.
They have to use them in some way...or they lose them. Im sure AS or WN are interested
That hangar at LGA is very old, however that room isnt...im going to say 15 years or so.Jump to post
Those are pilots blindly following a dispatcher and a 5 hour old release. Who on earth would divert to IAD now?Jump to post
You cant really depart 33. It is very short. Landing is different, you need less room especially with 50 kt winds. I would imagine 1 is being used for deps for mainline ac. Unless contaminated x-wind limits are exceeded...and then there are no takeoffs. A 757 out of DCA on 33 had to be full power, ...Jump to post

Doesn't AA own the most corporate contracts on the NY and LA ends? Hence, the most premium offering. UA has the premium config 757s on a lot of flights, but less so than AA. DL is normal configuration. It's 2018 not 2008 corporate contracts are so old. Barely a factor anymore. Are you serious? Corp...Jump to post

Not much. Delta has such a large operation there because it is a red state with low taxes and good business climate. To shareholders, the ROI is what matters.

Yes there are green sprouts in Chicago. But it pales in comparison to the population loss just between 2000 and 2010. Let’s face it, the pension explosion has hit Illinois hard.

The Curtain Wall on the two new wings is UGLY! Reminds me of 1980s, non descript construction. Very similar in appearance to the Hilton at ORD...but that was built decades ago!
