Re: The Future of Regional Airports in the US?

There's a mile of difference between an airport like CAE and airports in the EAS network. Columbia is close to 20 times larger (at well over a million passengers) than the largest EAS airports (around 55k passengers), and most EAS are far smaller. On the current trajectory for small airports in the ...

Re: What's next for Spirit?

Well CMH and MKE were AirTran cities that aren't small like CAK, FNT, DAY so if Fornaro wants to add from AirTran cities than these medium-sized markets to Florida and Myrtle Beach should work. What are the gate situations like at these airports? That Richmond was announced fits the idea of Spirit ...

Re: Via Air Announces AUS-TUS/OKC

I hope they make a go of this -- they have struggled mightily in the EAS routes to provide a reliable product. I worry that if they don't run a good operation and fail the takeaway will be "50-seaters are dead", "nobody will forego their FF miles for a nonstop flight", etc. when ...

Re: Small Load Factor

Three of us onboard a 100-seat DC9-30 from Omaha to Milwaukee on Columbus Day morning 1987 back in the Northwest "mini hub" days. Their seat assignment system put us in the same row even though we were unrelated parties (We spread out, of course...)

Re: Republic (1979-'86) initial MD-80 routes?

Early on I recall them mostly between Pheonix and Orange County, Minneapolis and Chicago, maybe a few tags out of MSP like Chicago, Milwaukee, Fargo. Over time they spread out some but I think they were still often sent to the west from MSP.

Hurricanes and their aftermath in TX and FL.


Dang, how quickly I forget! Better than any other suggestion anyone has made.

Re: Updated: MCI New Terminal Vote Passed

Cranky Flier has some good information from a Southwest source on KCI, which supports my amateur (but frequent KCI user) opinion. KCI limits what Southwest can reasonably do. It can't bank flights for connections and it shies away from pushing connecting flows through the airport because of congesti...

Re: STL Air Service Discussion

September Numbers are out. Not great up 0.8% on the month up 5.7% on the year Passenger Aircraft departures were up 8.6% though I know some other airports had some of their first negative months in a long time in September. I am assuming the hurricanes had an influence on the numbers. https://www.f...
