Given this news of NK announcing AVL, I’m even more surprised that they still lack service to DC area on a legacy carrier or regular service to DFW. AA is now running seasonal, Saturday only service to AVL so maybe that will be escalated soon. Seems the ULCC are finding a real opportunity there tha...Jump to post

The Ryan Air type of Spirit airlines is slowly being pushed away for a More AirTran type model.

PIE i had to use airstairs to board a TZ L1011
Im not sure if people express used the 747 at PIE
Everyone used airstairs before they built the 2 jet bridges.

AVL is kind of in between GSP CLT and TYS. Its expensive ti fly in and out of. Im greatful G4 is there to kind of keep the US3 at bay. I sure do miss FL, and working the AVL flightback in Florida. I wish we could get either B6 or F9 in here, and at least make the airport a busier place than it is. ...Jump to post

This is a nice little marketing stunt. Also...since when is it only the US that drinks lots of coke? It's one of the most universal brands on the planet, if not THE most.

With the departure of EY from EDI in October 2018 as well, EK aims to capture the traffic and fill the void left by EY.

I wish dl would bring the 767back to TPA. I flew on one in with the ron allen and wavy gravy TPA-ATL. . I also remember CO flying one to IAH from TPA flew in as a charter. I was able to non rev on it per station agreement. I wish we'd see widebodies again domesticallyJump to post
They have AM and LAN listed for TPA. Those airlines dont serve TPA unless i am missing something. Only thing i can think of is maybe they flew a charter to TPA at one point ti be included on tbis list.Jump to post

I was in DXB a few years back and there was a former AirTran airplane operating for Iraqi Airways. I didn't see the registration, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was registered with an EI number.

The thought of allowing any single airline to effectively control every gate at an airport should make everyone shudder. It's already too concentrated.
