Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2019

The airport has explored the possibility of using some amount of space between the existing International Plaza and the FedEx facility as a bigger general cargo facility. I'm not really sure what they want to attract with the facility though. Amazon Air, LH cargo, KE cargo, etc.? The UPS facility wi...

Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2019

Although BOS's international O&D is higher than PHL, partially due to its relative isolation, when compared to NYC-PHL-WAS, the difference in the number of international carriers has a lot to due with the fact that BOS has miniscule competition from any U.S. carrier for services to Europe. In o...

Re: Spirit Airlines adds CLT

I can see BOS, DFW being added and a LAS redeye for utilization. Fares on CLT-LAS are relatively high but the loads are relatively weak. Only averaging 252 PDEW in 2017 and the first half of 2018. Opportunity to stimulate traffic.

PDEW numbers. Only included the "off-season" numbers. There is no doubt there is seasonality in some of these markets. SEA numbers double into the summer months and SFO increases quite a bit as well. DEN and LAS do not show much seasonality. PHL-SFO (area, so includes ONT and SJC) 2016 Q1:...

I just double checked this, and NK and WN aren't even competitive in this market in the winter. WN has no flights and NK has 1x daily leaving PHL at 7:45pm. It's crazy to me that PHL-LAS has no nonstop flights before 6:30pm, and just 3 daily in total! US used to run 4-5x daily 757s on this route at...

Surprised to see AA cede so much of IAH-PHL to UA; I and some colleagues fly this route weekly and at one point it seemed AA was going to give it a go against UA. Frontier is seasonal and less than daily and WN just (re)started PHL-HOU and Sat-only IIRC. UA has upgauged from the 175s and even UA se...

Could some of these be upgauges? Thanks Eniliria, really like the YOY comparison. So far I do not see many upgauges. Seeing quite a bit of PSA CRJ7/CRJ9 flying gradually shifting to PHL in Q1 2019. I'm even seeing that a little bit now. An aspect of it might be the gate utilization at PHL. E-jets c...
