Denver city council recently approved an incentive package in April for 400k for an airline to operate 4x weekly service with an A330-200 seating 266 passengers with the proposed service starting next spring. No destination or airline was named but the profile exactly matches Aer Lingus. However, I ...Jump to post
I know most airlines are upgaging to 76 seaters but what about Air Canada and their CRJs that fly routes like MCI/STL/MKE/OMA etc - YYZ? Are they going to be replaced with CRJ705s or discontinued? How hard can it be to fill a 705 considering AC flies MCI double daily half the year.Jump to post
With CDG-DEN struggling I wonder what impact this might have on EI choosing DEN for their next addition. Perhaps the market is already over crowded for EI to jump in the fray. Anyone know how ZRH-DEN is doing ? WK's DEN - ZRH flight is off to a good start. The first flight was almost 90% full and t...Jump to post
Surprising and unfortunate to read. DY's relatively recent Denver to Paris route is already losing money and has been moved from year-round to seasonal. For what was once one of the largest unserved international routes from DEN why is it failing? Over estimated demand or perhaps DY is the wrong air...Jump to post
I was at the inaugural ceremony and i've learned a few facts: - The first flight out of DEN was nearly 90% full (much higher than I anticipated) - Negotiations for service extension next year are underway - UA/ *A passengers will soon be able to book the flight through the UA website.

DEN officially broke ground on its 39 gate expansion this morning. Completion of the expansion is expected for Concourse B in 2020 with the remaining A and C concourses in spring 2021.

Today is the day! Icelandair begins its first ever flight to Kansas City this evening. This is also MCI's first scheduled flight to Europe and is the end result after 10 years of lobbying to airlines. I'm hopeful this flight will grow beyond seasonal and into year round. I did a dummy booking for th...Jump to post
AUS is a growth spot; wouldn't be surprised to see LH or AF/KLM soon. Additionally, TK to either SEA or DEN seems like sooner rather than later. TK is planning to add both SEA and DEN. These are yet to be announced for a 2019 start. That's an interesting development. Where are you getting this info...Jump to post
DEN is absolutely on TK's radar. I've been told that it's a 2019 add. AF/KL? Sky Team hubs in SLC, MSP, ATL, DTW flow DEN traffic to AMS and CDG. The question is could they get a premium from DEN nonstop traffic that wouldn't hurt yields elsewhere in the system? My guess is no. Ditto for TK, howeve...Jump to post
The best MCI could hope for (even with the new terminal) is a network akin to PDX, RDU or BWI. A small focus city for DL or AA, more SWA cities, a flight to Europe or two, maybe another route to Mexico and there's nothing wrong with that. You don't need a hub to have good air service. As others have...Jump to post
Wish list for Kansas City 2025-2030. Hopefully the odds of the following increase when the new airport opens. I think MCI could develop a network akin to PDX, AUS or BWI in time.

Norwegian Air begins DEN-CDG today. DEN has tried unsuccessfully to court AF for over a decade but ultimately DY stepped in and filled the void. Over 200 people daily travel between Denver and Paris and yet only Norwegian files the route and its premium heavy. Even though DEN is star* and CDG is a w...Jump to post
In addition to AE, Plaza Premium lounge also is coming to DEN and will be located in Concourse A.

Has Icelandair to KEF basically put an end to any other direct transatlantic link? Probably not. If anything, if the MCI-KEF route is successful it will further prove there is a TATL market from MCI which could spur additional flights. When factoring the KC metro and the surrounding feeder communit...Jump to post
Plans for an American Express Centurion Lounge at Denver Airport could be in the works. If it comes to fruition, the lounge will be one of the largest lounges built by AE surpassed only by JFK.

Fake News Where are people getting these "rumors"? Its getting tiring.

Except that’s not what he said. He said it has no relevance at all, which is why I made the reference to other cultures traveling to ancestry homelands.

Denver’s population is 9.7% Irish descent according to World Population Review. With a population of over 700,000, that would mean nearly 68,000 of Irish ancestry.

Articles have also mentioned that MCI authorities are hoping to land flights to the UK and/or Germany in addition to having Icelandair. What are the chances of Condor or BA serving Kansas City? I could see KC adding at least one more European destination when the new terminal is done.Jump to post
