We’ll probably see this when the new admin building opens attached to the under construction parking garage. The new admin building will free up space next the the clubs allowing for both the Admirals and United club to get a much needed make over and expansion.

The outgoing MUC and FRA from PHL saw it as a very bad AA strategy. Now Lufthansa will ship the Boeing 747-400 to PHL and increase the CLT with Airbus A350-900XWB. I already imagine that for the summer of 2020 they will launch PHL-MUC. I do not understand why AA cuts such important routes https://w...Jump to post
As stated earlier in the thread, there isn’t enough demand for two carriers to FRA. LH has the advantage of using United for their club at both SAN and AUS, and connections into these airports as feeding. LH also offers significantly more connections out of FRA too. Now they just need to update the...Jump to post

Why oh why do we keep on posting about WN and Hawaii?

That would be a painful flight in any 737. Yuk! I don't see why it would be different from any other plane. To me it doesn't matter how big the plane is, what matters is how big my seat is. And on Southwest they're rather big. It's a myth that you need wide bodies for such distances, you really don...Jump to post
in Nashville right now. The Admirals Club is much smaller than I imagined it'd be.

Greensboro to RDU is only relatively fast if you take the toll road. Otherwise it is just shy of 2 hours. It is pretty much the same drive time as Louisville, KY, and Cincinnati, OH to IND. Add another 15-20 minutes and you can include Dayton. Ft. Wayne would fall into the same category as Dayton. ...Jump to post

But I think Frontier will try again. Of all the airports in the region, F9 tried SHD years ago and quickly failed (Duh. What a dumb idea). I think they lasted only 90 days if that.

I really believe WN could survive with basic service out of ROA. Even if it's just during the school year, plenty of students come in from the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
