IND-CDG (DL 500) is in the area of 95% load for the month. If sales are supposed to improve as a route gets established, DL is going to need something bigger on the route for June of 2019. A 767-400 (76D) or A332 might be in order. Not sure if the A332 is going to provide enough additional capacity....Jump to post
While true, LON slots, specifically LHR are very valuable. I don't see AA/BA using IND as an immediate asset for them. I would give it 5 years before a concrete option to LON becomes available. A lot of airlines are watching ULCCs I don't disagree with the slot assessment. How soon this happens wil...Jump to post
Delta cannot do both IND-LHR/CDG. This service is heavily reliant on connection. Doing both would split the connection traffic and hurt the economies of both. I think if IND-LHR on BA happens, IND-CDG is gone. But LHR slots are precious, so they'd have to justify dropping something else first. Agre...Jump to post

Is the picture of the customs area still on here somewhere? Is it in this thread? Not too worried about being dropped off in the baggage area - similar deal at a number of airports. That shouldn't be a major deterrent for transits. Is this what you are looking for? https://www.flickr.com/photos/857...Jump to post
Just talked to a friend who flew CDG-IND on Sunday: Customs area was small Two booths were open, plus one for handicapped, so the line was very long A few people were having trouble with global entry, but my friend got theirs to work so they didn't have to wait in the line Bags took 20 minutes to c...Jump to post

Your thread title is misleading, sensationalist and without merit. Most of us who have worked or still work in this industry have pets. 99.9% of us would never do anything to harm someone else's animal. Some pets just cannot cope with being in the hold. Over 500,000 pets traveled and 24 died? Reall...Jump to post
It all depends upon what kind of markets they want to target. If they want to largely avoid the big boys and gals, Q400s to places like IND, DAY, OMA, etc. are all much more ideally suited to the Q400. I wonder if the IND jet bridges can dock with a Q400. I don't believe the terminal provides tarma...Jump to post
It's an average for the entire year. For example the demand to CUN, MBJ, SJD, and NAS is likely significantly higher on Saturdays and during Spring/Winter travel seasons, the weekdays and travel off-seasons lower the average PDEW. In addition, the CDG PDEW isn't stimulated yet, once the service get...Jump to post
Could a 5am flight be attractive for cruise passengers sailing out of Port Canaveral? You depart at 5am and get there at 7am. Allow time to get your bags and then take a shuttle to the port. Hmmm... that probably gets you there far too early. You would get to the port by 10am and that is well before...Jump to post
If the person smelled so bad, how did they make it on the plane? Did no one notice and complain about it in the terminal? What about after boarding and before the plane pushed back? Maybe something chemically changed during the flight and the smell got worse. Or maybe some passengers were being over...Jump to post

Looks like Republic is building a new pilot training center at IND.
I haven't had a chance to look over the site much yet but apparently it is going to run around $65k to become a pilot.
So what can IND do to change the customs / international gates area? Why only one A side concourse? So Southwest comes in to A-5 and then has to get shuttled around to B? What could IND do to change the customs or gate area? I don't know what they can do to fix this. They really painted themselves ...Jump to post
Ah, we've got a regional hater. Shocker. Let's just ignore the fact that Republic's pay and benefits exceed those of several major carriers. Great 401k, some of the best health insurance in the industry, industry leading pay. You're not going to get as much for flying an E170 as you will a mainline...Jump to post
No idea, but the gate area around A3-A5 does not have enough seating especially now that they upgraded the seating area there. I was there when DL and F9 were both departing simultaneously which was around 400 people, in a condensed area that has seating for probably around 100 people. The whole Cu...Jump to post
You might want to do a little research on that. Republic's pilots are at the top of the regional industry in pay and work rules. They're trying to get out ahead of the pilot shortage rather than chasing it. I would not be surprised at all if this is a Republic-related announcement. I did and honest...Jump to post
I cannot imagine it being Onejet. They are such a small airline but I guess it is possible. G4 would have been my #1 choice. OH... what about Frontier? The airline in reference has to be one that is going to need a lot of pilots. Wouldn't Republic make sense because the regionals are the ones most ...Jump to post
A partnership with Vincennes or Purdue and Republic? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk I'm not really sure I'd call that huge. If this is going to be a pilot training center then two things come to mind. An Airbus training center for G4 pilots for a C-Series training center for DL pilots. Those ...Jump to post

Just curious... why did the AA flight get one too?
Here is the arrival. Nice spotting location.

Honestly.... from the photos I saw online from the open house, the area looks very poorly designed. Just too cramped and the baggage claim looked the worst. I think these are glaring issues that nobody really notices with the smaller Saturday flights from Cancun. But the CDG flight will begin to exp...Jump to post
Yes, rode DL500 and DL501 on their maiden voyages. As I told my wife, I was apparently the only idiot who thought that would be cool. Guy I had that brief interaction with was IAA.

DL501’s crew today was ATL based. They’ll take the flight back tomorrow, Saturday night. They did mention what’s been said here, IND will be a temp base for the summer while the flight runs daily.
