I've noticed in Syracuse F9 uses a set of stairs to board passengers from the rear of the plane as well. Is this a normal thing for F9? Do they do this in other cities? It'll be interesting come winter with the lake effect this area gets if they continue to board this way when the snow flies. https...Jump to post

With the direction B6 seems to be going G4 will have an opportunity to scoop up those A320's as well.Jump to post
They've been having this bot tweet about non-dairy creamer since November last year. At least towards F9 anyways.Jump to post
I think someone accidentally used their Twitter bot army or purchased an army to complain about F9's lack of non-dairy creamer https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&q=Flying%20%40FlyFrontier%20would%20be%20SO%20much%20better%20if%20it%20offered%20nondairy%20%23vegan%20creamers%20for%20coffee%20dur...Jump to post
How does F9 find the gate space for all these DEN flights even if only 2x/week for a lot of them with only 8 gates? They use a lot of the common use gates as well, especially for the late evening and early morning departures, when other airlines (primarily B6 and the international carriers) aren't ...Jump to post
I myself live in SYR and always fly out of there cause I don't drive and getting to the other airports w/out a car can be a problem and if you're going to a place like NYC driving to another airport destroys any time advantage plus some of the cost difference. I do believe SYR's outlook has improve...Jump to post
Did anyone else notice that SYR has begun installing new jet bridges again? Checkout this live feed from the airport: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CfnUeAKM04. Newest bridge is the one closest to the camera, they just installed it this week. They plan to upgrade all the bridges to the glass type.Jump to post
The following routes were served fall 2008-spring 2009 then cancelled: BUF-DFW SYR-FLL SYR-DFW Two out of the three of those routes have been restarted (or are planned to restart). The only route left is SYR-DFW, hopefully that route will start back up as well. I see SYR-DFW restarting by this time...Jump to post
In know that in SYR DL has a gate that they use mostly for RON's but is occasionally used for diversions. UA doesn't have that problem as they use a covered ramp for the 3rd plane they overnight while the other 2 flights use the normal gates. AA mixes up it's flights as far as gate usage to even th...Jump to post
Why do airlines in the U.S. need to lease more gates than they need just so they have a place to RON their aircraft. An airline will have maybe only a dozen or so flights thoughout the entire day at an airport but they need 5 gates because they need a place to RON for early morning flights to make c...Jump to post
SYR Announces Passenger Traffic Increase SYR Announces Passenger Traffic Increase The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority (SRAA) today announced that passenger traffic at Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) is up over 18 percent for the month of April, compared to April 2017.

I wonder if the 4 MD-82's that ValueJet used were ever used by G4.Jump to post
I have a dark sense of humor, mostly because I'm in the medical field, but this incident made me think of this sketch:
As far as SYR summer schedules go UAEX has phased out the Dash-8's so they're all jet now and AA is using more E-170's from ORD and PHL. Also Frontier will start serving SYR in the middle of the summer and I think they'll be using gate 1 in the south concourse. BTW I was there today the most of the...Jump to post
Does anyone know what gate at SYR Frontier is planning to use? I'm guessing that they're going to be using Gate 12 since it's empty all day until that Jetblue flight from BOS comes in at like 2300 to RON until 0530. From the times I've seen for F9's flights it doesn't look like F9 will be having any...Jump to post
Syracuse Airport Authority is supposedly going to be having a meeting next week with another new carrier.
What's left? All I can think of for domestic is AS, WN and NK. Maybe, possibly DY for new international service but I'd pick one of the other 3 before I'd ever expect DY.
Here's the Press Release from Frontier. Of note is their use of the A321 for their MCO service.

I'm excited to see SYR land F9. More competition the better and they're bringing new routes. There are those that will say that F9 isn't such a big deal or that they are a carrier to stay away from; I have no gripes with them. Their business model is just a different way of thinking when booking. If...Jump to post
Something interesting this morning, Southwest sent a plane to SYR this morning from BWI. Flight SWA8614. I couldn't find anything happening with the schools in the area so I don't think it's a charter.
While we're talking about Syracuse, did anyone else notice that LiveATC.net has stopped providing any feeds of SYR? I've noticed that, why would they stop providing feed for SYR They're all volunteer feeds. If you live close enough to the airport and have a decent internet connection give them a ca...Jump to post
