Re: Southwest prompts $60M expansion at BWI

Yeah, I think that is for sure a factor in WN and NK’s success at BWI. Frontier has tried to start up many new routes out of IAD but have either had to decrease frequency or cut routes like they did in the 2014-2016 timeframe. Cost Per Enplanement 2017 DCA: $13.44 BWI: $9.34 iAD: $17.00 This articl...

Re: PIT Update Discussion Thread - 2018

I think DL would have a problem moving to the odd B or even A gates. I think there is a taxiway limitation with larger aircraft on those ramps. Since DL uses the 757 and 767 (on some subs), this would not work on these gates. Someone in the know about PIT may be able to confirm. It would be an issu...
