Re: Indiana aviation thread - 2018

Re: DC/VA/MD Aviation Thread - 2018

Re: Norwegian names possible transatlantic A321LR markets

I would think that between IAD and BWI, BWI would have the advantage cost wise. No doubt the state of Maryland could be brought in to provide subsidies like it did with BA. And IAD costs I believe are much higher than BWI because of their large amount of capital spending recently. Don't count out DU...

I would think it would be prudent to head to IAD at this point. Apparently headed to CLE. Ridiculous.

You cant really depart 33. It is very short. Landing is different, you need less room especially with 50 kt winds. I would imagine 1 is being used for deps for mainline ac. Unless contaminated x-wind limits are exceeded...and then there are no takeoffs. A 757 out of DCA on 33 had to be full power, ...
