Also, keep in mind from the Delta side as well, the NYC Pilot and Flight Attendant bases cover JFK/EWR/LGA, so they have a crew base already in place at EWR to work these flights. In addition, Delta does have line maintenance at EWR, so it's a pretty built-out operation there which makes it pretty e...Jump to post

I like the idea, but I still don't get where the aircraft are coming from. They are taking a couple of additionally A319s, but since the 737-700 order was cancelled I didn't think they would have the aircraft to begin mainline service to all of these new destinations. (MSN, MKE, IND, CVG, MEM etc)....Jump to post
Is concourse A maxed out? Everybody not named AA is at 100% gate utilization and isn't growing because of that and only that? I think it pretty much is. The only gates that aren't at max capacity are Jetblue's A4 and A8 which is utilized by Frontier and Air Canada. But the Charlotte market is growi...Jump to post
There is also the fact that the DOJ has changed now and is likely much more favorable to business under the leadership of President Trump and Attorney General Sessions...much better chance of the DOJ changing tone now than they did under Obama.Jump to post
As far as B6 not coming to MHT because of there hub in BOS what about PVD? Same with DL. DL is pretty much as minimal as you can get at MHT. One daily flight to ATL that is a RON and 3 daily to LGA/DTW on RJs, which are the two nearest hubs. For comparison, PWM gets 2x mainline (and goes up to 3x m...Jump to post
I generally agree that the transfer isn't bad from E-A but the CBP can be brutal in the summer. Now granted, I only take Delta into BOS internationally, but it does seem like DL's international schedule does greatly benefit them so I might miss those peak times (using Jul 17, 17 as a proxy): During...Jump to post
In BOS you wish you have a 5-7 hour connection . If you checked bags in you have the wait at the baggage carousel that alone is more than 30 minutes or more then you have CBP will take around a hour or so unless you are one of the first off the plane you can get right thru . Then you have the reche...Jump to post
That being said I've heard DL is applying for additional MIA-HAV frequencies. Could be interesting.Jump to post
I can see BOS-SYR/ROC/ALB and BUF all on DL at some point. JMO BOS-SYR/ROC/BUF I can see on Delta, but not ALB-BOS. It's a 2-2.5 hour straight shot down I-90 between the two cities (145 miles) and would be all O&D traffic. Cape Air with their 3x daily Cessnas is the perfect combination of gauge...Jump to post
DTW-MIA 1148 miles. http://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL1829 Not as far as the flights from PIT and MKE to CUN, MKE-CUN at 1511 miles is the longest, with DTW-MIA being the longest daily flight. Going back the past 17 years (all that I have schedule database information for), ATL-STX is the longe...Jump to post
Y4 Really is the Mexican airline with the most presence in the US.. it's unbelievable the flights they operate!! No, they are not.

I'm sure in the next couple of years LAX, BOS, and RDU will be added. This would make ORD a large spoke in the network. I just did a quick mapping out of the gate situation at ORD for Delta (I believe they have 8 gates and this summer will now have 59 daily flights out of ORD). That being said thou...Jump to post
With the First Four games starting tonight in DAY, and the rest of the action starting Friday, there will be a good bit of travel to and from the venues.

I've arrived on a domestic flight on the "F" gates before... the DL staff greeting the flight even made it very very clear that customers terminating in ATL need to take the train to the SOUTH TERMINAL. It was a 767-300 if that helps. Keep in mind that Delta has been trying to make sure t...Jump to post
According to the Telegram http://www.telegram.com/news/20170228/game-changer-flights-from-worcester-to-nyc-planned), the flight will leave around 6am and return around 11pm, and will start once the Cat. III landing is in place. So, realistically that probably means early next year. Can't say I am a...Jump to post
That seems.....like an awfully complex and expesnive shuffle of things for not that much net benefit to me compared to just building a South gate complex. Actually it is a good plan when you look at the entire airport, not just from a passenger view. The North Cargo terminal area predates the curre...Jump to post
What you are basically describing is what was the south gate complex. However that plan has been dumped in favor of moving Delta cargo to the south west side and using the DL cargo space for G, H and I concourses. These would be half concourses like F. The idea is that the city could then convert E...Jump to post
The A350 will only have 26 Delta One seats, and currently the 777 has 37. I'm wondering if the 777 will cut back Delta One to the cabin between doors one and two, and then Premium Economy taking up the real estate aft of door two that 10 D1 seats now take. A350s will have 32 Delta one seats, which ...Jump to post
It's great to see DL growing at CVG. With there being an announcement at CVG next week, I hope this means we'll see some new DL routes. I have been looking at the changes and there are some serious flaws in this update schedule for CVG. It might be a massive expansion that is currently hidden (as w...Jump to post

Then again, the walk to Gate 4 in T3 is basically the same as walking to B50 today... How so? Wasn't Gate 4 right next to the rotunda? Gate 4 was indeed right next to the rotunda.

T3 was a dump and was falling apart at the end. The original rotunda was nice, but the main part of the terminal was like a subway station. Customs was tiny. Every time I flew out of there I felt like I was going back in time to 1980. I do have many good memories of nonreving to Europe on DL from t...Jump to post
Because they still have a large presence in GUM/Micronesia and it is isolated from the rest of the system. Using a mainland base is impossible; there is no way to fly between the mainland US/Hawaii and GUM via any point in the world solely on UA 737s. The Micronesia 737s only fly to/from GUM/Micron...Jump to post
There were rumblings about CVG going after LHR service, maybe this will help that happen. Seems like it could be a decent route for a 752. I know the hub is a shadow of its former self but if they can make PDX work with almost no connections on either end, CVG should be doable. Highly doubt it'll b...Jump to post
strange that Star can manage two flights while Skyteam has none? And I never thought MUC service would survive when US dropped out of Star. Star only has 1. 1x MUC-CLT. They don't fly FRA-CLT, AA does. Lot's of connections to Germany in the CLT area and the MUC-CLT flight is likely a holdout from t...Jump to post
Not to mention the current AA planes (less premium heavy, more coach heavy) are likely a better fit for CLT-LHR than BA's planes, which are significantly more premium-heavy. For a route that likely has a lot of flow traffic, best to try to fill the front cabin on the small local traffic and then rel...Jump to post
US government just gave their tentative decision.
DL gets LAX and MSP; AA gets LAX; UA gets SFO; HA gets daytime HNL.
As WS champs, they may have brought a bunch of people to the game, staffers and such as a reward. That would make sense. As champs, the whole management staff gets to coach the All Star team, so in addition to the four players (plus likely family), you also have nine coaches/managers, plus trainers...Jump to post
I was suprised by DL getting a flight from MIA. It's not even a hub or focus city. So pax will have to connect at other DL cities to connect to MIA. More than enough local demand in the market to fill it up. That being said, I wouldn't be shocked if it were timed to connect to/from DL's MIA-MCO fli...Jump to post
WN does DAL-HOU 20x/day on 737s. OK, I've seen this on A.net a hundred times and never had the courage to question it, but here goes. Can somebody explain this to me like I'm five?

Since you mentioned HA's inter-island flights I wonder why HA does not run flights throughout the night as it seems like locals and tourists would need to get between the islands anytime day and night.

Not even AS' busiest route - that would go to PDX-SEA (albeit most of which is on Q400s) - weekdays have 28x/day.
HA's HNL-OGG is 24-25x/day on 717s; WN does DAL-HOU 20x/day on 737s.
Other big ones for one airline are SFO-EWR on UA (18-19x/day), ATL-MCO on DL (17x/day) and GEG-SEA on AS (17x/day).
In fact I've seen their A333 around GRU several times in past months, certainly swaps.

Haven't seen it in SJU in the past week. LIM is on the Summer 2016 schedule as a 77L.
