What are the chances that Emirates adds ATL-DXB in the next 3 years or so? I know Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines already fly here, but I would just love to see the tail of an Emirates 777-200LR parked at Concourse F. EK coming to Atlanta is always a possibility but I just don't see it happening...Jump to post
Its funny that BNA has more YVR service than ATL. Wonder if that will change soon via WS or DL? Service is only on Saturdays seasonally right now, right? I never understood why DL dropped the ATL-YVR service? I used to fly it 2-3 times per year for about 5 years but that was about 10 years ago at t...Jump to post
For the past couple of years, LAS has had some pretty good expansion in foreign air carriers. Here’s a few that we’ve seen: Hainan Airlines (PEK) Condor (MUC) Norwegian (LGW, OSL, ARN, CPH) All seasonal Eurowings (CGN, MUC) Both seasonal LATAM (GRU) Seasonal VivaAerobus (MEX) Thomas Cook (GLA, STN) ...Jump to post
ATL has been mentioned by the airline as a possible new destination with the Airbus A321LR.Jump to post
Qatar Airways started flying the Airbus A350 to ATL yesterday. Unfortunately, I wasn't there to see it, but if anybody happens to have any pictures or videos to share of the plane arriving at ATL, I would greatly appreciate it. I think it's great that we have 2 airlines flying the A350 to ATL now. F...Jump to post
What is the chance SWA will add ATL <--> MEM? They recently added ATL <--> BNA. Memphis has been begging someone to break Delta monopoly. The ticket cost are really expensive. I know SWA ended the AirTran flight to MEM because too much traffic was connection and not O&D. I could see it happenin...Jump to post
Is DL replacing it? No. Delta already flies mainline ATL-MTY service, and have been doing so for a while, long before AM anncounced their service. At the moment, GDL is also flown by both AM and DL, so let’s see if AM manages to hold on to that. I know this, but DL currently flies 2 mainline daily....Jump to post

Is DL replacing it?
It appears that the proposed Concourse G may not be going ahead after all, and that a smaller and a potentially cheaper expansion of international gates at Concourse F is be considered as an alternative option. https://www.myajc.com/business/hartsfield-jackson-may-not-build-planned-concourse/0yQzvwe...Jump to post

What would you guys say the next airline will be that comes to St. Louis. Any ideas or rumors? If so, when could that happen? I'm guessing BA or JetBlue, but put on the spot I say BA. I don't think Spirit has any routes to start that make sense. They are all pretty saturated with WN, F9 and G4. I s...Jump to post

Yet we are still waiting for DOH-LAS to start. I think it would be hilarious if EK announced LAS just to rub it in QR’s face, but what’s funny though is that that actually could happen, given the fact that EK is starting to go back into expansion mode now. Besides that though, I expect we’ll be kep...Jump to post
It's a subscription-only article but I can tell you that the subject of PR to SEA is being discussed in multiple-threads and I assume the referenced article is just some SEA-area catch up. Perhaps you could report what the article states, especially if there are any specific facts regarding such se...Jump to post
It looks like another international carrier could launch service to Seattle soon.

Southwest is adding ATL-BNA from Aug 7.

It's about time we got some competition on this route.
It wouldn't surprise me if ATL is one of the announcements that they make in the coming months. They have expressed interest in serving the airport once they receive their new A321LR aircraft.Jump to post

Well done MCI. If this exceeds expectations as a seasonal flight, then I could eventually see it going year round.Jump to post
I found this article from Irish Central that states that ATL is one of many US cities that Aer Lingus is considering the launch of once they receive their new Airbus A321LR's.

Sadly yes. That to me is one of the downsides of the airport master plan, but hey, on the bright side we’ll have the Domestic terminal canopies as a new noticeable feature for the airport once those are done. While I will miss the red and orange, I do like the new look. It is very clean and neat. D...Jump to post
Why no airline other than DL operates BNA-ATL is baffling. The fares are astronomic and the flights always full. WN, F9, NK??? If any airline is going to fly ATL-BNA against DL, it’s going to be WN. I think some competition on that route would be good because it would help bring those high fares do...Jump to post
With the modernizations going on at Hartsfield, are the red/orange exterior panels being removed permantly?

I flew DEN to ATL on Delta yesterday, and from what I observed, the modernizations of the concourses seem to be coming along very nicely.
