Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

I am actually now of the belief that this was a mistake, though instead of building a new terminal east of the 20L/20R, they should have gradually demolished the existing facilities and replaced it with a layout similar to RDU/AUS. Would have been very disruptive in the short term, but it would hav...

Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

enrila's weekly OAG update shows F9 adding some frequency to DEN, LAS, PHL, MCO, RSW, and TTN but I thought those were already announced. Can't see MNAA making a special announcement over that. I'll go with Southwest1675 and say WS adding seasonal service to YVR.

These stories of airlines denying pax are getting old. It has been happening for decades. Were it not for social media, these every day occurrences would never make the news.

Some of the 60's too. The 880 Nugget jet, onion dome, totem pole, miner. AS did special liveries well, but I expect there will be fewer with the new look.

Agreed. WN needs to focus on making BNA their flagship station in the southeast. It makes no sense trying to build up ATL because of the humongous DL hub. I would maintain what they have at ATL, but focus all future growth (especially in connections) in the southeast at BNA. I believe the expansion...

It will certainly take a hit. I know CA is staying put, assume most Star members will also. Haven't heard if MU or CZ plan to keep any presence there or move everything to Daxing.
