Biggest marketshare + least competition + highest O and D...That is a successful hub. Eliminates NYC and LA for sure. EWR is an interesting one. Worked well for CO due to dominance and size. I believe the new add campaign “New Yorkewr,” coupled with talking with an insider at UA, highlights their we...Jump to post
The subways are crumbling due to poor maintenance practices and bad governance; not population growth. The toll to enter Manhattan is a great policy. Congestion pricing is smart. That's a sign of NY doing the right thing; not a sign that things are bad. Anyway, that's all tangential to Amazon. The ...Jump to post
Look at numbers not growth rate. New York is so much bigger than everywhere else in the United States that the growth rate is a misnomer. Show me a city that’s added 1 million people in United States in 20 years. The infastructure(trains from 1920s, roads from 1940s/50s) simply can not handle that ...Jump to post
No way it's NYC. I'm shocked it even made the short list. It has simply gotten too expensive and too hard to live here...even for techies. NY is a city under siege from unchecked population growth without proper infrastructure growth. Our roads, subways, commuter rails, airports and bus system are ...Jump to post

What pilot? Jetblue is the most delayed major airline in the US. They are knowingly dispatching the flights to LGB past curfew. Good luck to the pilot refusing to fly because of a curfew...JB dispatches a legal
flight and you’re a JB pilot, you are going.
The route you just pointed out is B6s downfall. ROC-JFK-LAX. If JFK goes down, hello, ROC-DTW-LAX. With B6, it becomes, I will see you in 4 days. They simply cant compete because of their hub setup. This leads them to push the issue, which extends the irregular operations for many days and gives peo...Jump to post

how is the Wall Street Journal fake news? It’s the most read newspaper in the country. Enough with the fake news garbage already.

[quote="aemoreira1981"]The situation in JFK remains catastrophic.
In aviation, when you see a smoking hole at the end of the runway with dead bodies in it, you use the word catastrophic.
What you see at T1 is stupid, annoying, enraging... not catastrophic.
Just giving you perspective...
This isnt RDU or ATL...they almost never get snow being a coastal southern city.
There is really no reason for them to invest in snow removal equipment
This storm and cold is a one-off that may not happen again for 20 years.
Major airlines usually have a few thousand in a pool after thousands of applications come in. Not ripping DY, just giving perspectiveJump to post
Yesterday, JetBlue announced $1000 bonuses to all full time employees as of 12/31.
More gimmicks, this bill wont put more money into peoples’ pockets... :/ (sarcasm)
Why are people so obssessed with these Airbuses? My god! I have never seen like it since the NW DC 9 threads.
What are there, 3 active threads going now?
Great news! The idea behind this bill is to further ignite the already booming economy and to finally raise wages after a decade of being stagnant.
It is a very good sign that all these companies are giving $1000 bonuses
AS gobbled a competittor to gain marketshare; they will keep profitable aspects...get over it!
I know it’s a bitter pill to swallow for employees but you’re going to make more money and have more job security than you could’ve ever dreamed of having. That’s what matters at the end of a career.

But answer as to why is because it's a popular and increasingly trendy vacation spot. Scheduled flights and charters from Europe have been operating to Cuba since the late 80's, Cuba has been a very popular destination for sunseekers throughout the world for decades, it's just Americans that have a...Jump to post
Saw their west coast plane at JFK today. Looked like a Miami Air charter. No airline name. White tail.
So freakin stupid!
To OP, dont listen to these bashers. I know what you mean. When Olympic was flying, you also had TW DL and FF (I believe that was Tower). All that is gone. For a while ATH had only DL. They upgraded to a 330. But I also know from my Greek friends in queens that Delta was the least preferred option b...Jump to post

AA at JFK...this is slot useage. They are obviously rearranging this hub and simply dont know what to do with the slots. A few years ago, DL upped JFK PHL for same reason. At the time they were enforcing the useage requirements. Obviously the Bos schedule has a lot to do with this...unless their is ...Jump to post
There are many factors here being glossed over. To generalize the answer for original question: For much of the 2000’s capacity was way down versus 2000. There are many moving pieces to that, but in general the early-mid 2000s were a lost decade for US aviation. Widebodies went away so guage got sma...Jump to post

CLT-NYC is banking center to banking center, no? DFW-NYC is business center to business center and they dont have another hub carrier with high frequency service to contend with. I would argue that both are more profitable and more important from LGA than ORD for AA. Both could use “shuttle.” The lo...Jump to post
There is still the JFK DUS route missing post AB.
Anyone going to fill that gap?
Im talking about mainline branding from LGA. The size of their operation is irrelevant, nor did I comment on AAs presence in NYC. If you are making ORD “shuttle” you can make most of the mainline LGA operation “shuttle.” I would argue that DFW and MIA are actually more important “shuttle”routes for ...Jump to post
What makes ORD more special than DFW MIA DCA or CLT? The only other mainline destinations That are non-hubs are BOS and PBI. What differentiates ORD among AA's various higher-frequency routes out of LGA, makes it a plausible candidate for "Shuttle" branding, are: * Level of frequency (onl...Jump to post
Bringing the conversation back into reality - I made an off handed comment a few months ago for "the hell of it" suggesting AA look at branding LGA-ORD as shuttle services, with the dedicated features and all that. Kind of expected it to be taken as "meh, whatever," but I saw a ...Jump to post
Can you be specific when you say PHL-JFK-Intl? Do you mean East Asia, South America, Europe?

You’re missing the big picture, and AA is cluelessly losing any position it has in NYC. Few are backtracking (from LGA JFK or EWR) to PHL to fly to Europe because there are a plethora of non stop and connecting options (in the correct direction) to get NYers to any point in Europe at any time of day...Jump to post
