Re: OAG Changes 12/10/2017: DL Drops GRK; UA Adds SHD/LWB, Drops LAX-OKC, SFO-XIY

They already added PDX and added freq to SEA, so obviously that isnt their plan.

For an airline AS or B6s size, a spoke with 16 flights is absolutely a large station. These arent legacy carriers with 8 different hubs to fly to from each spoke

Much easier than dealing with the giant TSA checkpoint in T4. 3. SJC/AS rumor is that Alaska will add at JFK. They have a new lounge. They hav...

The biggest catch 22 is that when the 767 or A300/10 was available PA was too cash strapped to make a big splash.

TW had its problems, but they took the lead on ETOPs and pioneered the 762 transatlantic.

PA stuck with the mighty 747. They were late to bring in a significant amount of 310s.
