. Those tourists willing to fly tjhis far to the US for gambling are unlikely to be satisified by those facilities available near ONT. You should probably tell that to the various buses I see at some of the local casinos along with the outlet malls between ONT and LAS. I know this from driving to a...Jump to post
AA can't be too happy about this lol Some of these markets have been ripe for some nonstop service; AA's just ignored it and/or hasn't had the right equipment. That said, how much do you want to bet we see at least a winter seasonal 1x daily E75 MIA-BUF? I think AA may enter all the new ones except...Jump to post
MIA is also getting flights to 3w to Buffalo, 4w to Trenton, and, and this shocks me in frequency, double daily to Islip. This is in addition to Milwaukee, Providence, Cincinnati, Cleveland, a Detroit and resumption of LaGuardia. Plus Islip is getting a daily to PBI, so F9 is going all out at Islip....Jump to post

If Norwegian comes to Tampa, I'd be surprised if it was anything other than Gatwick. TPA already has LGW. I don't know if Norwegian has ever launched a destination with CDG before LGW but it would make much more sense to start a new route than split it with BA. They've already started CDG from MCO ...Jump to post

I know this flight only operates for a couple weeks, but it's amazing to see how much TATL service AUS has garnered especially when you consider just a few years ago the city had never seen any transoceanic service. I do wonder if SAT, which is 80 miles to the SW, will ever see any kind of TO servi...Jump to post
If Norwegian starts TPA, it'll likely be just from LGW and I'll stand by that opinion. If a market other than LGW is added, I'd say it would be from CPH or OSL, because despite the non-existent local market, Scandinavia is very easy to stimulate in both directions, and it's travel habits better alig...Jump to post
If Norwegian comes to Tampa, I'd be surprised if it was anything other than Gatwick. To be fair, though, I can't imagine you'd ever endorse the idea that TPA would see up to 3x weekly to ZRH, or FI to KEF. I don't see 1x weekly to CDG (and, to a lesser extend, FCO) to be unreasonable. It is a large...Jump to post
JetBlue and AA offer full meals on redeyes, but AA limits it to three routes (LAX-JFK/MIA, and SFO-JFK). Not sure what UA and DL do these days, I'm sure they have it on their premium transcon redeyes. While unfortunate, what AS serves is typical for a domestic carrier on a redeye flight. Enjoyed the...Jump to post
Aer Lingus simply isn't realistic with it flying to MCO already and an MIA announcement supposedly forthcoming soon. LH makes MCO,MIA and TPA all work then why not Aer Lingus? I do think that if TPA happened it would be after MIA was added. Aer Lingus is more apt to route passengers to where they h...Jump to post
Also, B6 might be beating everyone else on JFK to LAX basically turning that into a shuttle every 2 hours.
Doubt this happens. Also SAS only has five long-hauls from Stockholm - EWR, MIA, LAX, ORD and HKG. Not a major operation.Jump to post
This is an extremely naïve question, but if one wants to fly QR from a non hub city post the AA cut, how would you connect? EK funnels through B6, EY and QR had AA. Now both EY and QR are at the same level of connectivity as PK without AA! Anybody have an answer? The same way you connect now, just ...Jump to post
MAH4546 please. MIA & PHL, as well as probably DFW will lose QR service. The only ME3 carrier MIA could attract was QR. FLL could attract EK because of B6. MIA won't sustain service on QR without AA. It absolutely will. So will DFW. So will PHL. DFW is probably the most heavily reliant on feed ...Jump to post
MIA and PHL will do fine. QR does not rely on U.S.-originating feed to fill flights. This made me laugh. QR has no domestic traffic to the US (in any meaningful amount). Without US and India traffic these routes wont fly. Without AA, QR will lose premoium pax which will make it hard for QR to offer...Jump to post
None of those are "major" cities. Important regional hubs? Yes.
CMH, MKE and CLT maybe one day.
The rest? Highly unlikely.

There's no question that MIA is the top destination for PTP- and FDF-originating O&D, but with nonstop flights and lower fares, Norwegian is likely cutting into AF's market quite a bit. AA has also relatively recently added nonstops to MIA. The advantage of ATL is that it offers connections to ...Jump to post

I think this route will never happen. FLL is the low yield alternative to MIA. Low yield plus high mileage and a thin market to begin with (PDX) means the route doesn't happen. The market is not thin and FLL has non-stops to every Western U.S. destination that MIA has, except Vail (and FLL has LGB,...Jump to post
MSY though? Don't they have enough demand to handle 3 TATL airlines?

For the same reason Delta started PHL-LHR - to deprive AA/BA of a remedy slot pair at LHR during prime/peak morning hours, and, after a period of a few seasons, then get the opportunity to move the slot to where Delta actually wanted to use it.

This question is absurd. Of course it's global. Miami is the financial and cultural bridge between much of Latin America and the Global North.

So, with reference to Commavia's post noting the "... Eight Consecutive Scheduling Seasons ....", what does happen with DL closing the route in six seasons? Does the slot indeed revert to AA?

Excellent post. What stands out for me is the increase overall to China +25% and moreso LAX to PVG +34%. On the other hand Brazil down 17% with MIA to GRU -16%. Probably why AA is shifting its capacity from South America (at least Brazil anyway) to the Pacific for the near term. They were, except B...Jump to post
The move will be tied into the opening of the new Midfield Concourse, 11 new gates for reshuffling.

That is correct and it will absolutely move to Terminal 5 as part of the announced $1.6B investment in T4/T5 by AA, which will relocate the remaining T5 tenants to elsewhere.
