Looking at this April 1975 EWR schedule, the edge is to Allegheny & Allegheny commuter (combined), with EA second, then DL, then UA.
GRR has had some interesting developments lately. F9 announced PHL-dartboard approach? January saw a 13% growth over last year, and just today AA up gauged DFW to the MD80. This is the first time we've had AA mainline since 1995. This route has went from 4x E-145, to 3x E-175, to 2x Md80. Any thoug...Jump to post
Thanks for everyone’s input. It’s nice to hear the different perspectives and information that I wasn’t aware of. This question has been on my mind for a while. Not meaning to shift the subject, but I'm really surprised no one is operating GRR-BOS. AA or DL CR7 / E170-75 would be the logical candid...Jump to post
Get there it is, to me, is not just about the destination, but also the idea of wanting to "finish this", in that case not make yet another missed approach/diversion, or go around when the approach was not going that well, but "put it down" hoping it would be OK. I'm not saying ...Jump to post

Those pax lost a whole day in Vegas, some of whom probably were coming back on the Sunday LAS-DSM. Hardly worth going after a 14 hour delay.
Exactly why I don't fly Allegiant, and why I advise my relatives and co-workers the risk of doing so.
Frankfort-Hahn (HNN / EDFH) comes to mind, although Ryanair has a number of flights there.
Rockford, IL (RFD) is another one.
Atlanta has the biggest airport in the world but has only a population of 400.000 people. A little deceptive IMHO. Metro Atlanta has 6+ million people whereas Burlington, VT and Jackson, WY, for examples, don't have much outside of their city limits. If we're talking just population within city lim...Jump to post

FIrst time F9 will serve DFW and GRR.......IND and GRR will be the only F9 flights at PHL that are less than 3x weekly.
Terminal reconstruction is ongoing at SXM with commercial pax using temporary structures.

Not uncommon on the Gulfstrean when during taxi, especially when light. Also was common on the 727 center engine but as I recall when your were in reverse you were blocking the air for the CSD oil cooler so extanded periods were discouraged.

It seems to me that the USPS had an operation--although not a hub--at GRR back in the 80s & 90s. I also remember seeing UPS 727s there. Can anyone here verify or debunk that? Happy New Year!

Maybe I have a very wrong concept of Fedex's operations, but given the limited payload and range that this aircraft will have, wouldn't it be more efficient most of the time just to load the payload on a truck to the nearest metro airport and consolidate it with other cargo to be flown by Fedex's m...Jump to post
Here in GRR, I can see them replacing the double daily C208's to/from TVC, and at times the double daily to/from PLN.
I wonder if the C408 will be able to be flown by one pilot like the C208, or will it require two?
I have to put in a plug for my hometown airport GRR.
