Delta seems to be anticipating that AA will drop RDU-PIT and G4/F9 will drop RDU-MSY sooner or later. NK entering RDU-MSY is what's going to cause other ULCCs to drop. NK entering 9 RDU routes is pretty big deal, especially on RDU-BWI where DL is having a real hard time and RDU-DTW where DL had bee...Jump to post
Isn't there already a seasonal DTW-YVR by DL? I feel that ATL-YVR needs to be year round so that it can compete with WS new YYC-ATL service as YVR is a way bigger market than YYC. Detroit has very poor coverage compared to MSP as far as Canada goes. Very little mainline and only flights to YOW, YUL...Jump to post
You completely forgot about Michigan. Michigan is 3rd in the United States as far as Polish population. Yeah but 99.9% of Polish people in Michigan are 3rd generation and more, people still show up to festivities and celebrate it because it's their heritage. Actually am not even sure that even 10% ...Jump to post
Neither of ORD or YYZ is business heavy. Both are mainly VFR destinations for LO. They may have volume, and I really don't know, I don't have the numbers, but I would be really surprised if any of those flights actually makes money. I just mentioned those 3 (JFK, PVG and NRT) as examples of major d...Jump to post
It appears that in March, NK will be operating a 5th MCO flight and 3rd FLL flight. So if you look on March 30th it looks like 8 DL, 5 NK, 1 F9, 1 WN = 15 total flights. 7 of the 8 flights on DL are 757s and the 8th is an A321. 4 of 5 NK flights are A320s and the 5th is an A321. F9 is an A321 and WN...Jump to post

Using Friday Jun 21 as an example, lets do the outbound RDU flights.

NK adds a daily RDU flight. Here's a summary of flights for a random Friday in June: BOS 1x A320, LGA 2x A320, PHL 1x A320, BWI 1x A319, RDU 1x A320, ATL 3x (2) A320 (1) A319, MYR 1x A320, JAX 1x A320, MCO 3x (2) A320 (1) A321, TPA 1x A320, RSW 1x A319, FLL 2x A321, MSY 1x A320, IAH 1x A321, MCI 1x ...Jump to post
Spirit has been coming in and leaving out of Airside 1 &4 lately on top of their regular Airside 3. DL is using basically all of 4 especially for RON's. B6 sometimes uses the 80 gates for international arrivals. What a mess this whole gate situation is. C can't come any quicker.Jump to post
As an Orlando resident, the only flight I really want is to lhr At this point, it's getting pretty ridiculous. Not gonna lie, GOAA is doing a pitiful job if they can't even secure a less than daily flight to LHR on a 787 while flying bucket loads of 747's, 777's and A330's to every other city in th...Jump to post
Speaking of old terminals, does anyone have any shots of the Davey Terminal Interior? There's plenty of images online of the Smith Terminal's interior, but I can't seem to find any old ones from the Davey Terminal. I have tried, I have found a few, but they are not very good. Someone posted some go...Jump to post
I don't know how I stumbled across this video, but this one strikes a chord. It's the old terminal announcements someone recorded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSXJnlzthLIJump to post
Now that the A220s are coming in and B717s are finally being shifted east, it will be interesting to see what routes they upguage at CVG. I'd imagine we will see more B717s than A220s, but hopefully both make appearances. Seems like CVG-DTW/MSP/NYC/BOS/Texas would be the best chances for more mainl...Jump to post
I was flipping through the March schedule for DL here at MCO and saw BDL will get the 717 on the Saturday flight, so that was neat. I think they did it to MCI a few years back too. I assume with the 717's leaving the west coast, we can see some natural capacity increases by DL. I also see the E7W sc...Jump to post
Quite a few international capacity decreases for S19 including the significant drawdown of the A330. I'll compare. TATL: LHR '18: 2x 332 - LHR '19: 1x 76W, 1x 332 CDG '18: 1x 76W, 1x 332, 1x 777 - CDG '19: 2x 76W, 1x 789 AMS '18: 1x 359, 3x 333 - AMS '19: 1x 359, 3x 333 FRA '18: 1x 76W - FRA '19: 1x...Jump to post
I see LAS in the same realm as MCO, although MCO isn't only people visiting the parks, but family as well. I don't see there being that many transplants in Vegas that would be from that area of Michigan, Canada, or Ohio. Maybe the rationale behind it is to do leisure routes from DTW, although they w...Jump to post
F9 added LAS, 3x weekly A320. Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday during the summer stretch: 07:30AM LAS DTW 02:30PM 03:20PM DTW LAS 04:55PM Here today, gone tomorrow. Some good introductory fares ($44 on Tuesday, $69 on Sunday / Thursday, available throughout the summer), but the flight times stink (if y...Jump to post
The tweet says it all. 3 routes including 2 new routes to BNA. Could this be correlated to the SAT announcement?

Nice! Internationally I think someone needs to add PUJ for the Caribbean, it seems like a decent void that could be filled. In Europe we could probably get DUS back, Spain service with Norwegian doesnt seem far fetched at all. I dont think we can support anything to Africa, not a lot of African peop...Jump to post
As an Orlando resident, the only flight I really want is to lhr Still wonder who is going to take the first stab. DL should do CDG, VS should do LHR. Although, most would probably disagree and say that BA should do LHR. Is the 777 too much plane? VS could do the A332 but wouldn't that have to rotat...Jump to post

My pick is SFB. DAB and MLB are an hour plus away from Orlando so doubt those two would be used. MCO is out of the question.
Not too mention DL has a decent showing in MCO so they got their Florida void filled. The only carrier of the 3 majors that doesnt is UA. This is why it would not surprise me if UA buys B6 at some point. UA needs to bulk up domestically big time and absent a merger, they have limited opportunities ...Jump to post
I think TVC is becoming the gateway of the northern part of the state. Its perfectly normal for there to be 3 or 4 cities that can support a significant amount of air service. I think TVC is under served in a way. I think TVC could support some Florida flights and maybe something west. I'd like to t...Jump to post
In order for B6 to make a good enough profit on DTW-JFK is by averaging at least a 72% combined LF for 2x daily E190s. I don't assume they'd put the A320 on this route. I calculated the sample RASM with different ticket prices and in order for B6 to effectively compete against Delta, they'll need an...Jump to post
Unless Alaska changes their flight times, they're gonna add service to another city from DTW this summer. Right now their red-eye from Seattle gets in at around 7am and the morning flight to Seattle leaves DTW at 630am. That 7am arrival has to go somewhere - unless they change the times.
