DTW-HKG and CDG would be 2 more. CDG seems like the second-most likely European A350 destination. LHR would be cool to see, most likely out of ATL, DTW, and or JFK, but that seems like more of an A330-900neo route. The 339 is perfect for LHR-JFK/ATL/DTW as well as SEA-Asia, those would be the perfe...Jump to post
A little birdie just told me that Leonard Hoops(Ceo of Visit Indy) is in Ecuador right now working on getting nonstop flights......I asked which airline, but they said they weren't sure... :shock: I'm glad to know that the IAA and Visit Indy are putting their brand out there at this conference.

So two airlines are targeting Detroit now Norwegian and Aer Lingus let's see how committed the airport authority is to landing these airlines to compete against Delta and increasing revenue for the airport. I think with the service and pricing these two offer it could bring a lot of budget minded t...Jump to post
I guess so, if I had to guess the 73W will be back by next winter since it could be doing seasonal rotations. Wouldn't you think that people would use SNA for Disneyland travel? I'm not familiar with SoCal. There was what looked like a ATL-CLT-DTW-SNA rotation to get the 73W to SNA. Would the A319 ...Jump to post
It’s a big deal that SNA is going to a 757, more seats everywhere indicates it’s doing well. Not really. The upgauging likely has more to do with providing operational flexibility, as the 73G is an orphan at both DTW & SNA. SNA is likely targeted at SNA POS (southern Orange County specifically)...Jump to post
Correct I think IAG want it reduced to something that would not work in the Irish market and EI are pushing back against them. I think they should keep the optimum schedule and stick with it for another year. I feel it would give the route more time to establish itself. Loads are below expectations...Jump to post
DTW to the UK is not very well covered with one stop connections that don't cause you to back track DTW has plenty of 1stop cnnx to most of the major UK cities without backtracking via EWR, and to a lesser extent JFK and PHL There’s only 2 UK destinations that is worth connecting to and that’s MAN ...Jump to post
Just out of curiosity, what are the largest airports/markets in the USA eastern/central time zones without TATL service on a OneWorld carrier? Would be curious to see the list. I would say that would be Detroit. How are we measuring "largest"? MSP has more pax/year Not internationally.Jump to post
My short list is; ATL, TPA, CLE, IND, PIT, MKE, PVD or MHT, SWF, BWI, DFW, SAT, DEN, and SLC.Jump to post

Rule out DTW, I don't think the IAG would allow it if they want BA to go back eventually. They don't want BA in the Detroit market EI is much better doe DTW as they would not compete directly with DL as BA would have to on a very prime route. The IAG is the IAG and they have a particular mind, so i...Jump to post
This will probably never happen anyhow. You might be right, but who knows. If I had to guess I’d say PIT would be the first new additional narrow body route, purely because of the Irish connection, in a similar vein to PHL, but like I said, total guess, Lord knows where the 330s will go next, DEN o...Jump to post
Rule out DTW, I don't think the IAG would allow it if they want BA to go back eventually. I would be surprised if DTW were one of them. EI want to link with places where their partners have a hub. They are in talks with lots of airports and each one must add up to make the short list. Which is why ...Jump to post

While I agree with you it's probably great for an ATL originating passenger the same is not true for someone having to make a connection. Delta only cares about one thing in ATL getting planes off on time and if you are left stranded there so be it because you missed your flight because it's Delta'...Jump to post
It was called Detroit City Airport and later renamed the Colman A Young international airport and yes I agree DET would be a great place for Allegiant to set up service. At this point there is no service there. For $83M DET can have commercial service again. It's one of the options in a study but n...Jump to post
I think F9 will add TPA, that’s it. AUS should be year round if it’s successful, and I never understood why DEN is seasonal. MIA isn’t performing well, it’ll be seasonal. PVD for next summer. I’m optimistic about UA at DTW, I can see a daily mainline on EWR and 2 or so on IAH while upgrading to the ...Jump to post
Your NK list looks pretty good, but if I were to make a short list it would be BNA-DFW/DTW/FLL/LAS. Reason being is, BNA-DFW is a strong market and only has 1 carrier on the route, so it would qualify for incentives. LAS, FLL and DTW would all make NK the third carrier, but all 3 offer connectivity ...Jump to post

Question, has DL finished planning aircraft types for April? I was looking through the flight schedules for DTW, the last 2 weeks in March there will be 2 A321’s on FLL and 1 on TPA. Both of these routes are showing all 4x 757 in April. What are the odds the 757 is placeholding for 321s? I assume w...Jump to post

I know seat maps aren't an indication of how well a flight is doing but the last few days I've been checking the seat maps to KEF on WOW and they're beginning to look solid. Hopefully the flight does well, this is something Detroit has needed for a while.Jump to post

You make some fair points, but I disagree with some of them. Texas is the second largest state in the Union (population wise), there is plenty of traffic to go around. AUS (and SAN, since it has been admitted that they sometimes overlap) have the second and third fastest growing city economies acco...Jump to post
As of now, focus on what F9 can do with DTW and ATL, because adding both of these on Delta is going to provide great connectivity for LI. DTW will connect ISP with the west and PNW, while ATL will connect ISP with the south, Florida and Texas. 3x CR9 to ATL and 2x CR7 to DTW. I think ISP-ATL might ...Jump to post
