I just found another piece of news at SAN.org just posted this morning:. JetBlue Airways operations at San Diego International Airport to relocate to Terminal 1 Wednesday, May 29, 2019 SAN DIEGO – May 29, 2019 – Effective June 5, JetBlue Airways at San Diego International Airport (SAN) will move it...Jump to post
Hey gang, according to RoutesOnline, posted on Monday: London Heathrow – San Diego eff 29MAR20 747-400 continues to operate in summer 2020 season, replacing 777-300ER in S19 So our speculation up-thread regarding Speedbird for next year has been clarified -- 'The Queen' (of the Skies) will be flyin...Jump to post
Quite possibly that COPA hasn't yet started SAN could be because of the grounding of the 737 MAX planes? I know they had announced 737 MAX routes last year, but the two MAX crashes most likely threw a wrench in their plans forcing them to continue using the older model 737s?Jump to post
maybe BA will be able to offer year-round 747 service from both SAN and AUS due to the PHX change. And I wonder if BA might eventually drop PHX completely and move that 787 elsewhere? I kind of doubt PHX has the traffic for 2 daily year-round flights to LHR but I could be wrong. bb Quite possible t...Jump to post
BTW, I just checked the WK website and SAN's service has deteriorated somewhat since the last time I checked. Friday service does in fact begin this Friday (as noted by me up-thread) but the Tuesday flight now doesn't begin until July. So July and August (as of now) will see 2 flights per week, Tu ...Jump to post
Looks like BA SAN-LHR switches to Heathrow Terminal 3 effective Autumn 2019. This is when the aircraft changes to 744. Verified on ba.com 22 May 2019. Thanks DCA' for verifying that at least for this year it's business as usual. I assume that on that same date in late October/early November that SA...Jump to post
(Also, I assume PHX being downgraded to a 787 Speedbird has to do with AA adding their own flight between PDX and LHR. Not a surprise there.) bb Now it's starting to make sense about BA downgrading their PHX flight to a 787. I had forgot that AA added their own LHR flight. The new AA flight from PH...Jump to post
From Winter 2019, the British Airways London Heathrow (LHR) to San Diego (SAN) will move from Terminal 5 to Terminal 3 at LHR. This will mean San Diego is served with a Boeing 747 aircraft year round In Summer 2019, the route is served by a 77W and in Winter 2018 it was served by a 789, meaning thi...Jump to post
Delta relied heavily on the TriStar back in the days of the DFW hub. Did the plane have the legs to fly trans-atlantic from DFW? The Tristars did have legs to do transatlantic. When I was stationed in Germany in 1989, Delta had a DFW-FRA flight.When I came home on leave, I took that flight, which w...Jump to post
Here's the basics of a post I just made on the latest OAG thread; I thought I'd post it here as well... A couple of quick comments regarding AA's JFK-SAN route which apparently will be disappearing soon. I was looking at that thread, apparently AA made lots cuts of flights between many cities and J...Jump to post
Hey L-Man, I think you might be just a few days too early. The way I see it, Speedbird switches to the 777 (actually 773 I believe) on March 31 -- this Sunday -- and remains that way all summer. (I think SAN and AUS continue to swap a/c. bb Bummer!That just deflated my balloon! As far as I'm concer...Jump to post
I was looking on Flightaware and the BA 747 is still on the schedule! Usually about this time it switches to the 77W, could it be that BA started using the 747 year-round now? They wanted to use it year-round before the FIS area was built, but couldn't because of inadequate facilities.Jump to post
And it most definitely hasn't kept any overseas visitors from using runway 9 when required.
Why did the Airport Authority change the name of Lindbergh Field to San Diego International Airport? Lindbergh Field is the historic name for SAN. Lindbergh Field gained international status in 1934. In fact, there is a 1950s picture of the old Pacific hwy terminal that says. "San Diego intern...Jump to post
California already has a bullet train. It's
named Southwest Airlines.
Hey SANMAN' , you need to weigh in here. What do you think of this news? And what about Devilfish , the PR expert... are you out there? Any comments? bb I'm still taking a wait and see attitude for PR to show up here. I still remember when they first applied in 2008 and all that waiting when the Ph...Jump to post
My other guess would be possibly United? They were in the east rotunda of T1 at one point.
. It has happened a few times in recent years that Condor has started a new route to the US and then LH came in, offered more frequencies and Condor simply left. Same here apparently. I read in another post that the same thing happened in Austin. Condor was there providing service until Lufthansa s...Jump to post
I would think it’s gonna take someone legitimizing the airport. By that, I mean either a Big 3 offering regular service or a smaller player lasting for a solid period of time. Short of that, people just aren’t going to take it seriously. Eh, it also needs frequent enough service to a broad enough a...Jump to post
The runway at CLD is 4,897, they want to extend it by 800ft. That would bring it to 5,697ft. That would almost make it as long as SNA's runway which is 5,701ft. (which of course can accomodate the large planes.)Jump to post
I would think it’s gonna take someone legitimizing the airport. By that, I mean either a Big 3 offering regular service Big 3 such as American Eagle, or Delta Connection? Horizon (Alaska) would be a good fit too. They were recently reporting on the local news that CLD wants to extend the runway by ...Jump to post
to why CLD struggles so with attracting and retaining service? I don't have the answers for that, but it is getting frustrating that airlines can't seem to take root at CLD. American Eagle, United Express, America West Express, are just a few that dropped service there years ago, recently CalJet di...Jump to post
Hello, we made it here. Flight was diverted to LAS because of the weather in SAN initially. Go-aroumd there was because of crosswinds. Looking forward to some happy spotting tomorrow. Thanks for your ideas! Sebastian We've had a lot of rain all day today. Not our typical sunny weather. There were a...Jump to post
