SLC growth is impressive on O&D, trends look for that to continue. Delta is at a pretty interesting phase at SLC until I bet 2021. Don't look for much interesting stuff for a while. They really have to focus on O&D and those necessary western connections more with airport limitations, but af...Jump to post
I think PBG news is relevant here since its market overlaps with BTV. BTV has no non-stops to Florida because they are so cheap from PBG. PBG has been the ULCC airport, as BTV has the legacies. PBG-IAD: 2x Mon-Fri CR2 1x Sa-Su CR2 Drive thru the BTV parking garage 1/3 of the cars are yellow New York...Jump to post
I think we can say with confidence it won't be NYC. The place is too expensive and they are not offering enough. This move is to save money, Amazon wants a good deal and save money for years with HQ2. Newark on the other hand makes alot of sense however if they want the talent pool in the Northeast....Jump to post
They desperately need more airport hotels and restaurants. That place is bursting at the seems. If they want to support WOW and Icelandair they need to start building more now. They need to invest in more facilities near the airport. Its a hike from the airport to the city, and there is not much by ...Jump to post
WOW talk about a thread really ahead of the time. No one really knows at this point but Amazon is going to be fishing for huge offers and cost savings with HQ2. Don't expect them to be flying two planes worth of people a day between the cities, that just wont happen. I am not sure how much traffic t...Jump to post
What other airlines will be at PAE? Have they announced destinations? I am not too familiar with the area, but looking at a map this does seem like it will be helpful to a lot of people north of Seattle? Could this hurt Bellingham at all since now there is a closer Seattle airport with probably lowe...Jump to post
It's a natural add. The market is not over served, it's an important destination to help win over heavy FFs from Alaska. Delta made a good route addition for their Network. DL is big to win FFs from Alaska these days I bet wee see some more changes and additions as they try to fine tune SEA.Jump to post
AA is doing a good job protecting the fortress in CLT If i had to make a guess, I would think the most likely candidate is VX/AS to LAX or SFO. Thats a pretty large market for just AA, a carrier could sneak in there carrying mostly destination traffic. United to SFO seems like another good guess, th...Jump to post
remember when people said this would be a huge success? I think most people or everyone was talking about SWF and PVD having potential. Near big markets NYC and BOS to Europe they can try multiple cities to make it work. I think most people were surprised by bdl and to one random city. It's norweig...Jump to post
All true, spirit is soaring. Some a.neters will call this "fake news" since they are out to defend the legacies at all costs.
Spirit is extremely up front on their product , as is allegiant.
The new Amazon hq2 is gonna be over hyped like HND slots to the us lol. The winner will most likely be some medium sized city that pays way too many incentives. I doubt it will be a Boston or Toronto more likely a medium sized city that makes a huge commitment. Amazon is smart they are gonna be all ...Jump to post
Didn't we just have a Norweigan has $$$$ problems forum. For now this is just a rumor. Sounds like some ssj management issues and trouble getting parts.
They have been quite happy with the ssj, I flew on it , I found interjet ssj extremely nice and the crew raved how much thru enjoy it.

Delta had plans to fly to NBO. I’m sure if they were actually starting service it’d be hailed as a brilliant decision.
I agree with alot of people here this seems like a really bad business decision. Will probably bleed money quickly . I can't see there being enough people to pay a high premium for a N/S and with payload restrictions those people are really going to need to pay a premium.Jump to post
https://globalnews.ca/news/3953290/porter-airlines-video-boston-toronto/ Frustrated by disorganization, some passengers pulled out their phones and began video recording Porter staff delivering information.

I think norweigan is fine. The legacies just wish norweigan would go away :stirthepot: I think their model is here to stay , it's working and looks to be the future. Revolutions don't happen overnight, the LCC long haul is sticking If they need an investor to pump money in, they can probably find on...Jump to post
There is so much demand in so cal to HNL, I do think this will be a success. B6 might adjust LGB but what good airline doesn't adjust it's offerings. People have been anti lgb b6 for so long now, they are not leaving the focus city. B6s biggest issue right now is southwests new interest in the place...Jump to post
I feel like allegiant usually gets people home sooner then the legacies in weather issues. They simply fly a whole new flight a few hours later or the next day etc. The legacies are all so full load factor wise there is nowhere to rebook people. Days later is the norm for non elite legacy fliers in ...Jump to post
I would like to see frontier airlines start MHT and BTV. I think there are opportunities at the less then daily level that could work for each.
Other then frontier I can't see any new airlines starting MHT, and the legacies are happy with purely hub flying.
Hays Kansas is exactly the kind of place that deserves EAS service. I totally agree with opinions stated here. It's isolated and far from any airport. The area needs a link for emergencies and business. It's a lifeline. Some EAS applications should not even be allowed to apply but this is a good exa...Jump to post

Delta just loves to adjust this route so frequently. They constantly scale it back but always bring it back, it's so weird how often this route gets cut then brought back.
I think a huge issue with this storm is NOT the snow , its the high winds foretasted. NYC, BOS, BTV, MHT are all suppose to see some pretty strong winds for a long period of time. I haven't looked at PHL, but i bet its gonna fall in the same boat. Very high winds predicted and that is why your fligh...Jump to post
3/2 Delta starts BTV-JFK flights 2x daily geared mainly at connections. Just another route they will compete head to head with B6. Really much better than LGA for connections though places like LAX, SFO, LAS, PHX, SEA all one stop in JFK in addition to Europe. As of now they just added JFK and i don...Jump to post
I would bet its SEA, LAX, or SFO. SEA would make some sense if they expect alot of connections on Alaska.
I do think Emirates will serve LAS-Europe but not from Milan.
Emirates clearly thinks its a little undeserved IE why they got in there. I think they filled the year round spot. There isnt really room now for anyone else. The main problem is its mostly leisure and there are just too many places to connect. People on vacation dont mind connecting to save a few b...Jump to post
The problem for other airlines is that ISP cannibalizes their own flights. They reduce the demand for their own jfk and lga flights. For frontier that is not a factor. They get to serve a new area and there are millions of people who can drive to that airport. It's a good try and score for ISP. The ...Jump to post

I think for alot of people WOW is awesome. If low price is your only criteria as it is for alot of people, then why not. It's not like alot of the legacies treat so great anymore. It's just predictable what issues you will face and you need to be careful to fully add yp all the fees and add ons. The...Jump to post
I flew the SSJ also and thought it seemed very comfortable. I would never put it at anywhere near md-88 or 717 noise levels in the back. It has felt smooth, solid, and quiet a very nice ride. I would love to ride it again . interjet crews seemed to really like it also.Jump to post
BOS seems possible as b6 seems to feed alot of people at JFK.
SLC is east of most of their cities, I see that as a possibility. Delta flies to two cities in Hawaii but they also command a high premium for the non-stops. It's almost always a ton cheaper to do a stop in LAX even on Delta.
WOW schedule is just too tight. It runs at 100% there is not a spare second which on paper is great, but in reality can't work. There is just no chance to make up the time or seats when things go wrong. This model is just so painful for so many except management. For some people WOW really is perfec...Jump to post
SY is a very leisure heavy airline. I see no issue with them filling a 737 between MSP and HNL. Fares can be pretty low on this route connecting, so i guess we will see if fares hold up. I see no problems with them filling the plane, as others have said the stop in LAX is basically refueling, they c...Jump to post
BOS should work as there is alot of demand from long island to the bos area, but In reality I think it doesnt for a few reasons. If you lived east of the airport you can take the ferry and it's not that much actual driving, mostly on the ferry you can watch Netflix,work etc. If you live to the West ...Jump to post
Delta in no way caused this, but their response was very poor and disorganized. NOTHING against the hard working line staff, but management didn't seem to have a disaster plan for a total hub shut down. Communications to customers has been unacceptable, re-booking systems were not working(people tol...Jump to post
DL/UA gate swap is an interesting idea @LAX but I tend to think it's a coincidence that Delta reduces a bunch of flights and UA adds. Delta really wants to funnel more traffic thru SEA, so LAX is just assisting that. SEA is the priority at the moment. United has said for a while they are gonna focus...Jump to post
Really nice for BTV, as this is the only scheduled international flight. Kind of tough to land on the other side of the airport to clear customs on the arrival.Jump to post
Overall i think the ULCC long haul market will grow significantly but it will more international airlines filling the need. WOW/Icelandair/Noreweigan are really filling the ULCC demand from the USA to Europe at the moment. I see lots more options for them on the less then daily routine. The US airli...Jump to post
I think this makes total sense. These routes are all very leisure heavy and Delta was probably selling mostly upgrades or selling the heaviest discounted fares. Its probably easier to sell more seats at a lower price. Probably very few people were willing to pay $2,000 for a short lie flat anyway to...Jump to post
