From DTW, there is zero feed to east Asia from FRA. It’s either FRA, Europe, ME, India, or Africa as final destinations.Jump to post

It’s crazy what’s been going on with DTW-LHR 2014: DL goes up to two daily during the summer. 2015: Virgin takes over the second flight and has 4-5 flights for the winter 2015-2017 season; (on top of daily DL). 2017-2018: DL takes over the second flight, back to seasonal only. And only x3 extra week...Jump to post

This article says that HNL is the third largest market not served from DTW. What are the top two? ANC and SMF?
YVR was served a few years ago, but I think that it only lasted a few months.Jump to post
This summer it actually went from 28 weekly to 27 so there is a bit of a reduction there already. That was just for one week this Summer, and it was offset by equipment change for that week. In aggregate, June-August 2018 DTWAMS capacity is up 17% when measured by seats compared to June-August 2017...Jump to post
So, basically local governments don’t have enough authority to motivate the US3 to stay, despite incentives. I just really doubt that there isn’t demand for a smaller plane on key markets. About the picture above, the same could be said in a field of AA MD-80’s except that they are actually being re...Jump to post
I have always questioned this over the last couple of years, and I will share some of my thoughts below. So, why is there not a replacement? At least in the US where the majority of them still fly? I know that they will still fly until 2025 or so. My thoughts are that the airline economics are chang...Jump to post
The A321’s are everywhere. I love it. Can’t wait till the neo’s start coming. Even though we are losing some of the connection routes which I expect more over from all hubs as there isn’t a replacement for the 50 seaters. The A321 brings capacity and a premium product. Same goes for NK as more and m...Jump to post
DTW can defiantly handle an ME3 carrier, but B6 is currently handling a lot of it. On the afternoon B6 run 80-100+ bags will go onto TK, EK, QR if the flight is near or at full, which is 150 seats. Not including the 10-20 bags seen on FLL-DXB. (That’s a long day in FLL by the way.) DTW can handle a ...Jump to post
EI has 8 A321’s on order, which means about 3 additional NA routes can be added through 2020. So if airports like PIT, DTW or another city doesn’t get a flight this time the wait won’t be too long. If the smaller flights prove successful then they may add even more planes. I wonder what effect this ...Jump to post
I just worked on the afternoon B6 A320 BOS flight, and it was very full. But what I really want to share is the fact that almost no one went for BOS, about 85-90% of the bags were connectors onto EK/TK/QR. Most bags went onto to EK, with TK being somewhat of a close second. I don’t recall how many w...Jump to post
So F9 has control of one gate that only get's used for the B6 RON and their 2 flights all day ?[/quote] Yes. However, if an F9 flight is delayed and there already is an F9 plane at gate D16, they will use gate D17. Even if a B6 plane is already there, the delayed F9 plane will stand and wait. F9 is ...Jump to post
Incorrect. I work at the North terminal and NK has their plates on D11, D12, D14 and D15. JetBlue does not go out of D15, they have there own controlled gate which is gate D17. Since there are two JetBlue RON’s, Frontier’s D16 is used for the BOS E190.Jump to post

PDX-RDU also seems like a good candidate, DL stated earlier that they weren’t interested in that route and instead said that they would put more frequencies on SLC/SEA. You're off a bit on this one.... Joe Esposito, Delta's senior vice president for network planning attended a July 2018 meeting wit...Jump to post
AY HEL-LAX is big news, it should have been in the title, but that is crazy enough. Great work like always enilria!Jump to post
klm617 There aren’t any real connection options to FRA upon arrival in KEF. Currently CDG, LGW, STN, SXF, BRU, DUB,and TFS are the options. I haven’t seen anyone go to TFS yet. For FRA by the way, it leaves shortly after the DTW arrival, meaning that there isn’t enough connecting time. That should c...Jump to post
Here is a sample of 106 bags from WOW last night. Please note:
This does not include items like strollers or carry-ons. Only checked baggage. Also, this is not a 100% sample, there were some more bags.
This proves once again the increased importance of the PHL hub over JFK.Jump to post
MSP-LAN down to one daily as well wouldn’t be surprised to see this gone as well by 2019.Jump to post
