Re: Salt Lake City (SLC) & LCCs

SLC is a huge airport for a city the size of Salt Lake City. Although the catchment area is big in size, not huge in population. The airport has the non-stop international flights it has because of the hub. I don't know what the contract The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has, but my g...

Re: Salt Lake City (SLC) & LCCs

Also, the SLC metro area only has 1.2 million people, ranking 48 in the US. This puts them smaller than Louisville, Memphis, Richmond, Jacksonville, and others, and only slightly larger than Birmingham (AL) and Buffalo. For a city of its size, SLC is more than adequately served by DL as others have...

Re: SLC Terminal Construction Updates

Re: Airbus Claims that A350XWB is quieter than B787, but is it really?

The posters here need to understand that the noise in the aircraft is highly dependant on your location in the plane. If you sat in the front of a 787 and just behind the engine of an A350, the A350 is going to sound louder. Obviously Airbus would take the time to standardize their testing methods.
