How did Patrickz80 completely miss that joke?
mine was on a BA320-100 BRU-LHR. was going for a job interview and the company booked it for me in C back in 1996. was 21 at the time, most people get their flirt flight much earlier these days! I was thinking the same. My daughter is only 6 but has flown many times including numerous trans-Atlanti...Jump to post
Dan Air 727.
School trip to Greece in 1986.
Vast, vast majority of my flights have been non-stop. Even single connections are few and far between.
Only made two stops a couple of times - and one of those trips only involved a second connecting airport due to a bus trip.
Not quite as close as some of those mentioned above, but: Mayaa-Maya (Brazzaville) is about 2 miles from the river border between the two Congos. The end of the runway at N'Djamena International is less than half a mile from the river border between Chad and Cameroon. Foz do Iguacu airport (Brazil) ...Jump to post
Flew Frontier in April. DEN-SNA round trip. Even including the extra cost of "the works" package, the flights were considerably cheaper than those offered by United. The works package gave us carry on bags, checked luggage, and seats at the front of the plane with extra legroom. The only d...Jump to post
Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) serves a number of metropolitan boroughs including the City of Leeds and the City of Bradford. Leeds and Bradford are both in the same metro area (conurbation) though. This thread is about airports serving more than one conurbation. I've always thought a large airport n...Jump to post
East Midlands serves both the Nottingham and Leicester conurbations/metro areas. And grabs a large chunk of the Sheffield market too.Jump to post
Intriguing post, and I hope you find the reg numbers, mikedelta720. Love to know how to access ACARS to find the reg number for some of my own NW 742/744 flights, including my first one, NW45 LGW-MSP on 12 February 1989. Does ACARS go that far back? FAA has all that information for at least domesti...Jump to post
With Denver having its busiest first six months in its history. A large amount of domestic and international flights starting between now and next summer, concourse expansion starting soon. What seems like the next thing for Denver, a new flight to Asia or even more European flights. I receive emai...Jump to post
Very recently back from a DEN-LHR return. Miserable conditions in Economy. Ancient 744's. Horribly uncomfortable seats and the seat pitch was the worst I've ever experienced. And check in at Denver was incredibly slow. I honestly thought they were on a 1970's style work to rule in support of their s...Jump to post
Two potential star alliance destinations stand out:
Lisbon - would love easier connections to Iberia
Istanbul - could latch onto all those Turkish routes to the ME
Quoted stats for DEN, but just seen they were already listed.

Try http://www.lhr-lgw.co.uk then check their archive movements. They're not complete so it might be a long shot but worth checking. Wow. That is a GREAT resource. Thank you so much for sharing.

First and only airport ever to serve the UK's 5th largest city and 9th largest metro area. That's actually not true, there's Doncaster-Sheffield airport. A former military airport that has now been turned into a civilian airport. A bit further from Sheffield and closer to Doncaster than to Sheffiel...Jump to post
Sheffield City. Opened in '97. Closed less than a decade later. First and only airport ever to serve the UK's 5th largest city and 9th largest metro area. Worked fine as a feeder airport sending commuter jets to hubs in London, Amsterdam etc. KLM in particular seemed to delight in how the route exce...Jump to post

This thread is looking at the world's 50 major airports, so places like Oakland or Fort Lauderdale, Portland or San Jose are not part of the consideration. But haven't you already listed the closest pairings from the top 50 major airports in the opening post? If so, where do you expect this thread ...Jump to post
DEN is my home airport, so I've never connected there but having flown to/from and connected in dozens of other U.S. airports there's no comparison.
If I had to pick a #2... I've only ever connected at DTW, but I've always found it a pleasant, problem free airport.
All this crap, yet European security still doesn't make everyone take off their shoes unless has a large heel or boot... Nor does the TSA. I recently took six domestic flights in the USA and only had to take my shoes off once. * shrug * You are either a child, a senior, or had access to TSA-Pre lan...Jump to post
More reason to only fly non US frames to the US. Being on a jet with someone toting a gun does not make me feel safer. I am presuming that these Marshals can only fly on US registered planes. Mind you I hope the others are a damn sight more professional than this one! No. There's no restriction tha...Jump to post
Although Cheyenne is one better than Fort Collins, CO which currently has NO scheduled services. Previously it was served exclusively by Allegiant until 2012 and then more recently by Elite.Jump to post

That is true, but flying out of DEN my options are more limited. No VS or CX. The lovely people at BA charge a big premium to book a x-x-2 seat at the back of their 747. United have 767's with a connection in Chicago but mainly 777's out of the other hubs.Jump to post
You can look for a credit card that gives you points which can be converted into airline miles. That would enable you to accumulate miles faster If you are fortunate to be in a position where you are able (and disciplined enough) to pay off the balance every month, this is great advice. I put EVERY...Jump to post
DEN serves 20 mountain and rural communities with EAS subsidised routes. Some of those have more than 1 flight a day. Some of the more populated destinations (Cody, WY etc.) get United Express. Others get a PC12 etc with carriers like Boutique Air. You can pick up a ticket from DEN to the San Luis V...Jump to post
