Thanks again for putting this together. A few observations. I know these are just snapshots and not representative of the schedule as a whole. PHL has a net loss in flights since 2014 that has been discussed, but the mainline % increased by 8. Piedmont had 82 DH1 departures from PHL in 2014 and now ...

PHL does not have a great taxi set up for aircraft waiting to depart, I imagine trying to depart on both runways creates a little bit of a tetris game.

Also winds today are blowing 10-15 kts with gusts between 20-25 so not exactly a calm day.

If they go the competition route:
IND-PHL (long-shot)

Doubtful. WN at PHL has retrenched to Florida and major WN markets (DAL, PHX, MDW, DEN, STL, BNA)

Re: Aer Lingus planning more International flights to US

Now, however, Aer Lingus' appears to have put oneworld membership on the back burner while it instead prioritizes entering into the trans-Atlantic joint-venture partnership currently in place between American, British Airways, Iberia and Finnair.

Re: American Airlines Network Thread 2018

PHL is lacking severely on flights to Latin America that has enough demand from the local Central American/Mexican/Colombian populations.

Re: Possible new routes for EL AL Airlines

El Al does not exist to serve populations of "Jews." I'd bet most of their U.S. originating traffic is probably Christians going on vacation. Philadelphia-Tel Aviv is not a large local market. It was artificially inflated by US Airways entering the market, and is not a market service gap....
