Re: Delta JetBlue, is there possibility for slot swap at NYC?

If B6 flew to Canada, then maybe because DL has a JV with WS and the YYZ route is much stronger at LGA than the YYC route from JFK. Otherwise DL would prioritize their LGA slots for domestic and Canada flights. Kind of moot. If B6 were to start NYC-YYZ, it would probably be from their hub, where th...

Re: Rumor: United adding gates at CLT

No way they’d set up a hublet in CLT. Now an extra gate or two I could see as to be honest they could use some more frequencies and an SFO flight, but they really don’t need but two. Maybe they meant to grow IN phase III? Or just a united club in Phase III?
