Re: Indiana aviation thread - 2018

UA is temporarily suspending SBN-EWR in February and March. The flight will resume April 1st. There is no explanation given but I suspect it is due to Newark Construction and Crew Shortages. Or the flight isn't doing well? 1x/day on an E145 isn't going to cause much disturbance to construction in E...

Wow. JetBlue pulling out of Dulles completely; also cutting some service at BWI. https://twitter.com/ethanklapper/status/1049684189107367936 I'd expect UA to backfill on IAD-BOS... And B6 is adding Ecuador? That makes zero sense. http://blueir.investproductions.com/investor-relations/press-releases...

AA is jumping on the OKC bandwagon with a daily flight to OKC starting in Feb. WN starts this route in Nov. I assume there is enough demand for each to have a daily flight and do well with it.

In terms of actual flight distance (not just direct distance), ORD-SBN is right in the mix with both of these.

Re: United considers expanding IAD hub banks

A new concourse may not just be linear, but have some appendages/banjos (DCA A!). There is a ton of land to the south of C/D, so with some maneuvering (adjust hardstands, service facilities, etc.), I would think there would be plenty of space.
