My best guess is that we will start to see a slowing Economy in 2019. If that is the case we will see more drops than adds in the Cleveland market. Expect to see Frontier and Allegiant to be the first to make drops on southern routes along with down gauging of Mainline carriers.Jump to post
You may be just fine on FL, but many business folks will not be taking a carrier that with any operational problems will misconnect and always be at least a day late with no options for rerouting on the carrier. With UA,DL,AA you will have many options from all over Europe. Last winer I had a flight...Jump to post
WOW had dirt cheap fares that did not make a profit. High load factors were due to these fares. It can not be assumed traffic will keep up when fare profit equilibrium is reached. Listen to the SKIFT (on web site this morning) podcast on the problems of long haul low cost airlines and their profit a...Jump to post
The other possibility is to expand Concouse D (removing the east boarding areas and converting them into jetways gates and remodeling the rest to take mainline aircraft. Once this is done airlines can be moved over from A or B. Then one could be remolded the other closed and made the customs wing (s...Jump to post
The shake out begins. One of the 2 carriers will be gone from Cle in the next. 14 months. The Norwegian fire sale also begins this fall with massive aircraft sales.
Over expansion was the death of carriers beginning with Peoples Express and Braniff and continues today.
With the recent resignation of the CEO of Icelandic it will be interesting to see what happens. The stated reasons were major drop in profits and the problems of expansion into North America. Cleveland was indicated along with the other new N. American cities as causing a major yield problem. Too mu...Jump to post

Ord was not included and was acquired at a later date. also note from C...Jump to post
It is great that so many show interest in Cle. However we are in a sad state of affairs when the excitement of the day is seeing a different gate being used occasionally by an airline. What is the situation with the drain tile project in the middle of the field? Seems to be going at a snails pace al...Jump to post
Connecting at ord is not a problem. Thousands connect from term 2 to 1 daily with little problem. The problem is people do not want to fly from ManchesterJump to post
Burke is a waste of valuable lakefront property
The Cleveland terminal situation needs to be broken down into 4 issues. 1. Restroom renovation (no new terminal needed) 2. Shuttle drop off (can be re-accomodated on regular drop off roads and valet moved to current shuttle area) 3. International Terminal moved to Concourse D --with a road on the ea...Jump to post
The airbuses are just fine. New carpets, and seats. Really like the new first class seats. I could care less about the decor in the bathroom.
To be honest have over 140 segments on United this year alone and cannot remember the decor in any aircraft lavatory and have used one on most flights.
The Cuban policy of the United States is the problem. We deal with China which has killed and imprisioned more than Cuba. If we flood the country with Americans that will do more to help relations and weaken the Cuban govt. then are current policy. How are travels going to use the flights if the res...Jump to post
60 minutes story will be spot on. The airline deserves the story that will be told. 60 minutes will do a very good job and will have journalistic
integrity that is not show on many of the posts on this forum.
This was prior to the second deck being built. The second deck was done After the c concourse was done.
At the same time the north concourse had gates 21,23,25,27 United. 20 lake central,22 Allegheny 24 Mohawk/northwest northwest 26
American 27,28,29,30 it only had one deck also. Year 1968
The announcement to add flights to den,iAd and ord from smaller cities is part of a up to 6% expansion. Other markets are not being cut in any way. Added regional aircraft will be used for the flights. 24 additional mainline aircraft will be used system wide along with higher aircraft utilization. E...Jump to post
Lets get the connecting info on carriers more correct: AA from Cle prime connection hub to Europe this summer is PHL. (with Ord also the picture with increased Europeservice) (as noted by others AA is slot siting JFK with Cle on ERJ's as they reassessed their JFK situation as Europe has been greatly...Jump to post
This is a non story. As many have indicated the passenger lost her seat due to using her app. She was then given
a new seat on the plane. Had nothing to to with a congress member on the flight.
To much of this crap on the internet and to some on this forum
The Cle -Chs route has along with several other system wide non-daily summer seasonal routes rarely have been listed for sale until mid-March schedule.
Expect more this year rather than less. Working on details at present. You have seen many in the past 30 days.
United is the carrier with the most service from Cleveland. It will remain the largest carrier far into the future. They do a good job with frequent service across the nation and most of the world. Why they cut the hub really does not matter and what is the present is what does. 2MM on United- based...Jump to post
Oscar is doing a great job.
United shareholder and a human with dignity --many on this post could use some
I understand the low fare concept and creating additional travelers from Cle to Europe. However for my self and many fellow travelers will continue to use IAD and other good hubs. If you travel more than once a year to Europe you need back up flights when weather or other factors come into play. I h...Jump to post
TWA never had wide-body service to Cleveland. It was a change of aircraft at JFK. Only wide body service from Cle on a regular schedule was: United 747, Dc-10, 767-200, 767-300 AA Dc-10 NWA Dc-10. Charters such as Rich Air Dc-10 also came in. YNG will never have a feeder flight to Cle. The route wou...Jump to post
