In fairness, the TSA and ATC Edcts becoming the norm on a daily basis and NYC ballooning traffic killed the shuttle. 1.5 new million people in NYC since 1980 without any meaningful infastructure investment will do that. Try to imagine quick TSA in early am in BOS or DCA, 35 min flight, landing at LG...Jump to post
It is being discussed in a thread about AA consolidating in CTB, giving DL the gates they need to consolidate. B6 doesn't get MAT to themselves, NK and F9 are moving too, and more gates doesn't equal more slots. That is incorrect information. Delta will take a net loss on gates. NK and F9 move into...Jump to post
Big hit if you look at OAG thread Interesting note MCO and JFK will have same frequency going forward. This gels with PR migration over last 20 years. Puerto Ricans do not come to NYC as much anymore...they go to Orlando. I fully expect the exodus to have a larger impact on Florida, and B6 seems to ...Jump to post
There is some news on this today.
Look for a press release shortly.
Big shuffle occurring in LGA next month
Pan Ams final request for a fly by in South America was denied. Never forget that.Jump to post
No room in BOS JFK or FLL. Unless they take those 15 airbuses per year and put them in MCI PIT BNA STL etc, they really have no place to go. Out of their current hubs, I guess they could grow IAD. EWR SFO LAX all have room for a little growth DEN and IAH have the most room ORD Will have more room in...Jump to post
There seems to be a pissing contest between 2 posters above with accusations of fake news. Just a fact check: Over the last year, B6 has been at or near the bottom for on time arrivals. That is not fake news. You just have to google DOT on time stats and read the report. There are a lot of reasons f...Jump to post
This is a great merger and will happen in next few years: 1. Trump admin will allow it 2. UA gets back to JFK and while they will be bigger at EWR, they will start flying international from both airports plus the trans cons and Airbuses 3. They will quickly win support from New York's congressional ...Jump to post
B6 and AS to MAT.
Delta to C/D
AA to Central Terminal
Mid November. I heard 11/12.
It has been in the works for a year.
As a NYer witnessing post 9/11 life, there will be no drop in demand. I'd go as far to say there will be an increase in demand to the Mandalay Bay. I watched ground zero IMMEDIATELY become a tourist attraction. The Subway white boards in Times Square used to list in magic marker: -Macys 34/herald -C...Jump to post
Gate use becomes more efficient. No need to keep more gates than necessary for a flight schedule especially at airports where gates are readily available.
I believe AS and VX moved to T7 at JFK for a combined operation yesterday
Little more complicated.
This is a national airline when there arent supposed to be national airlines.
For Italy, in a convoluted way, Alitalia folding would be like LH folding to Germany or BA folding to Britain.
My bet, another bail out and AZ lives to see another day

For the 5th largest airline in the US, which previously had not specified when this would happen, that's soon.
PBI has one important market: NYC. Specifically, NYC Jewish population and NYC monied population WN doesnt touch that except for 2 daily to ISP. And that is the edge of the catchment area for said populations above. That is their failure. LGA EWR JFK HPN. That is where the year round demand is. The ...Jump to post
B6 is cutting schedules to SXM STT and SJU through the winter.
I suspect the first of many airlines to do that
B6 is a prime takeover target with nowhere to expand paying substandard wages compared to competitors. This is a wise move for the rank and file. Really nowhere to expand? FLL and BOS are expanding well. As for the FAs it's really 50/50 personally I think they can hold off a union but if they used ...Jump to post
not sure about that. AS with its current offering can't really challenge UA for premium flyers in bay area. It challenges WN as the Californian local carrier of choice. And with AS program downgrading since AA/DL/AM are no longer partners airlines and KE/AF/KL likely leaving also, I just don't see ...Jump to post
NW would have kept NRT intact as a standalone. They had nothing else. You have to understand, mergers made hubs redundant. We see it in the US all the time. No doubt STL was "marginal" for TW compared to UA at ORD, but it was all they had and it wasn't going anywhere. No one on here can se...Jump to post
Delta is pretty small at MCO compared to the good old days :) That whole Airside was theirs sans a few international operators. Plus the Comair operation. MCO became a low cost haven and the rest is history. DL Express, Metro Jet, Song, Co Lite...there were various build ups in Orlando and pull down...Jump to post
Who would buy tickets post August on AB?
This isnt US chap 11!
You have to take ownership of your decisions. If you bought a ticket on air Berlin after this filing, you know what you're in for.
As for those purchased before August, it stinks...but the company is gone.
Stick a fork in these guys.
Just a few weeks ago you guys were arguing about which airline will take what routes and fears of a monopoly.
There wont even be routes left to part out when all is said and done
Cessna 172 Flying 101: -never put yourself in a situation when you have no way out. nobody has been able to answer this: if the flight took a delay? you do realize that flights take delays all the time despite the best efforts and intentions of all parties involved.

All off :) WN is a short/medium haul airline historically. Some longer flights now, but short/medium is still where it is at for them. JFK is a long haul airport. Historically, short haul has not worked there. Currently, beyond someone with a hub like DL or a must have for someone like B6, I am not ...Jump to post
AA really ceding MCI. first LGA and now LAX. 2 very important destinationsJump to post
Hub (NYC) to Hub (Euro hubs) routes. Why not? Delta learned long ago they needed a presence at all airports in New York City. Something CO and UA hadnt learned until very recently. ..and judging by there new ads begging people to use EWR by saying it's New Yorkewr...it is advantage Delta. The conist...Jump to post
SJU is service to hubs. With regards to JFK service being axed, I will turn analogy upside down...I think AA JFK is on its way to a dehub/line station with only service to outside LGA perimeter/international partner hubs. SJU JFK going is more about JFK than SJU. SJU already is what it is...and AA w...Jump to post
A huge chunk of the already flying HAV flights have bad loads. Including JFK. Im sure BOS will buck this trend. Cue eye roll. Plain and simple, this is a slot grab for future investment. Airlines are hoping and waiting for this to pay off. Notice how most of these applications go to the Miami area. ...Jump to post
Why, everytime a cut is announced by a legacy to Britain, is it okay to reference the fallout from Brexit without such blowback?
The poster is noting astounding growth at LGW despite Brexit. Nothing more
This is big news about nothing.
Always seasonally planned. Been that way for a while.
Delta has flow this route for close to 30 years...I think it will stick around for a while
Man, what a freakin bloodbath. I havent seen anything this bad at JFK since TWA announced in 99/00 that they were ending FCO, BCN, MAD and a bunch of others in one press release. Im convinced we will look back at this as the beginning of the end of the AA hub at JFK. As much as Im a JFK fanboy, for ...Jump to post
