MSY is an obvious add for WN at LGA, probably IND and CMH too, perhaps OMA or BWI. At DCA, increased frequencies, perhaps IND. ISP would be a cool add, though I know it's crazy. Would solidify WN's presence at ISP and show their commitment to the NYC area. I think we could see some adjusting at EWR...Jump to post
Thank you! Cant wait to see these “comfort” animals banned completely in the future. If I see one more person taking an 8 pound yapper to Palm Beach as a “comfort” pet to avoid the pet fee, Im going to scream.

Why cant DL make PBI-JFK work?
Certainly has seasonal swings, but not a seasonal route
They are not pulling out because they can not pull out. It is marginally profitable and they have nothing else. B6 seems beloved or loathed by a.netters. Strong feelings aside, they have some big issues at present and seem to be floundering around with indecision and impotent leadership. The former ...Jump to post
Would be JFK. This flight can't and shouldn't need connections to survive. The premium demand should be sufficient from SIN, and JFK is seen as more premium than EWR... Except that if any of that were such a clear-cut case, then SQ had 9yrs and two market downturns to switch that flight over... and...Jump to post

Where are the AS cuts to JFK SFO/LAX?
I know they were mentioned, dont see them in the OAG thread yet
[quote="iyerhari"]SJC airline market share: WN: 48.40% AS: 11.39% AA: 8.96% JFK airline market share: DL: 26.81% B6: 23.01% AA: 11.69% AS does not even show up in JFK top 20 airline reports.[/quote BS.

Looks like they are going to give B6 a run for their money.

B6, JFK ORD cut answers the question on how they were going to run that many flights out of 1 ORD gate.
Another BOS add at the expense of JFK. Similar to DEN PHX HOU SEA and, more recently, SYR.
B6 doesnt really add capacity to these places...they shift it from JFK to BOS
Yes it changed around 2pm today.
Kennedy needs two runways for landings and 1 for departures from midday thru the early evening when they reverse it.
Vor 13L Vor 22L depart 13L
Around 5 (wind permitting) it switches to ILS22L Depart 22R and 31L at KE intersection
T7 is the BA terminal. There are several airlines in the terminal, but the large name atop the building is BA. When UA was in the terminal, they had 6 gates. They also got their own sign, I guess, due to the amount of space they leased. No other airline before or since had their own sign on T7...unt...Jump to post
It didnt cause a week of problems at T5. That was a broken pipe at T4. Also, the gate space issues at T1 and T4 had no effect on T5. Each terminal is operated as an individual fiefdom at JFK...that is why it is the most inconsistent airport experience in the industry. Long story short, January start...Jump to post
I have been on 3 r/t's this year from ATL-BOS and am booked on two more starting in late May ATL-JFK-ORH. Of those 3 ATL-BOS I was on time each time except one. That was Friday, April 2nd.

It also doesn't help B6 that JFK (and to some extent LGA) is slot controlled. If a number of flights take a delay, miss their takeoff slots, and have to wait on new slots becoming available... that can snowball real quick. That isnt how slots work at least at JFK or LGA. The flight goes when it goe...Jump to post

I love the aircraft graveyard that they have at their hanger in Havana. Like 15 aircraft with all parts missing. Good luck getting FAA certified.

Whatever your political views on Cuba and the United States, There is an over capacity there right now.
BWI is the EWR of DC: Good road and rail access and convenient for many people. IAD, Too far off the I 95 Corridor, Is seen as less convenient.

“Also, JFK is an issue because of one word: Norwegian*. Well, TATL ULCCs in general, but Norwegian is causing the brunt of the issues.

There is nothing wrong with that at all. We are just following the downward trajectory over last 2 years. IMO it will likely continue.

My prediction is that the Eagle operation almost completely goes away in the next few years, along with anything that isn't strong O/D. If PHL can be further reinforced, that makes more sense than trying to vainly hold on in NYC. With DL's domination at LGA, I don't think AA's position is sustainab...Jump to post
