As you all know by now, SEA has been announced starting May 2018.Jump to post
I know this off topic, but what doesn't CX fly to Seattle? Why did UA cut NRT? Was the load's bad? I think CX hasn't started SEA is because of their company financial performance and their presence at YVR. UA dropped SEA because they were "dehubbing" SEA by removing a lot the non-hub flig...Jump to post
There is always one or two armchair CEO's that try to compare and contrast DTW and SEA. They also whine about why SEA gets new service and DTW does not. Unless these folks from DTW have lived or stayed in the Seattle area, take them with a grain of salt. We know that SEA is viciously seasonal. I thi...Jump to post
Cointrin330 wrote:Delta handed the route to VS, they didn't cut it. Putting the 787 on SEA-LHR helps to ensure a competitive product and DL could use its A330/767 elsewhere in the system. DL/VS is metal neutral.
I could actually see maybe 1x/day E75 on SEA-FAR. Microsoft has a large sales center in Fargo, and there are some other links between ND and Alaska. Fargo is also far north enough that FAR-SEA-West Coast connections would be about the same distance as FAR-MSP-West Coast, although a few hundred mile...Jump to post
Let's see after this summer how long it takes Delta to reduce Seattle Europe capacity as they are now really being squeezed with all this low far capacity that is being dumped into SEA for the summer 2018 season. I would appreciate if someone has data on pricing between SEA and Europe. I find it to...Jump to post
The Icelandair service is pretty inefficient How do you figure? I fly Icelandair about 5-6 times a year from Seattle to Europe (mostly Paris) for work. The connections are seamless - around 55 minutes with no issues. I take this flight rather than the DL nonstop flight to Paris so that I can accrue...Jump to post
BA operates 10-14 weekly LHR-SEA flights. I think that gives IAG pretty good insight into demand and almost certainly means that DUB-SEA is not a huge risk. It will be interesting to see if LHR-SEA is scaled back with the launch of DUB-SEA, allowing growth from LHR to another destination. Somehow I...Jump to post

I know US did well on the SEA to PIT route. I worked for US before all the mergers, and the flights were always full. If I recall, we had a 321 on the route for awhile. I am certain AS will do really good on it. US only did well on the SEA-PIT route because US had their major hub there. When US de-...Jump to post
Terrific comedy for AS to even bring up the POTUS. Red meat for the ultra-liberal Western Washington but such a pathetic attempted excuse. The amount of money lost is into the millions. There's a reason no other airline proposed LAX-Cuba. Lost Millions? Data Source? Lots of qualitative talk here (n...Jump to post
We in SEA love seeing new international carriers! But where are they going to park??? I was eating at the A-Concourse getting lunch before my flight. I was dumfounded by the number of international flights moving in and out...including the LH 747-8i.Jump to post
TG served LAX with disastrous results. There's a LOT of competition there! TG once served SEA with extensions to DFW and YYZ. Just because TG is in Star Alliance doesn't mean they can't join another alliance or change alliances. I think, though, it would make more sense for TG to align with AS. In a...Jump to post
I've got a list of routes from SAN that those axed long-hauls to the Caribbean (Cuba) and eastern Mexico can be used for! Just let me know, AAG, if you need any help deciding what to do with those soon-to-be-available a/c! bb Through SAN? Not a chance! They'll use that airplane to fly to Mexico or ...Jump to post
Well trained professionals at the other airlines that bum rushed the HAV slots made the same mistake with the same result as Alaska. Out of all the routes, we all expected Alaska to be the first to fold it up. LAX to HAV with a crew over-night? Yeah one of those well trained professionals at Alaska...Jump to post
I saw in the Travel, Polls, and Preferences forum that user eicvd said that SEA-DUB is rumored to be announced by EI on Friday. More flights to the big US cities like SEA (rumoured to be announced by EI on Fri) Exciting if true! Any guesses on frequency and aircraft type? I think it'd be 4x weekly ...Jump to post
There's no one else on that route and could be a gold mine ;) It very well could be. AA should try it. They have a few planes that could make it. AS on LAX-SXM would only work with the A319. Nothing else really has the range. Maybe the 737-700 but the range on the AS 737, according to the AS websit...Jump to post

Such drama here. LOL!Jump to post
I do not believe DL would leave SEA as a hub; to leave Seattle would mean it would have to almost-totally abandon the Asian market. It has put all its eggs in the Seattle basket, for better or for worse. That means it also can't drop its domestic feeders, which it depends on to bring its passengers...Jump to post
All you armchair CEO's all know that temporarily lowered stock price rarely indicates the beginning of the end. Some are just challenging you, EA CO AS, because they can without any substantiation because you will react. You have to look at performance YOY...not just a few days. Year-to-date, AKL i...Jump to post
Other than the recent add of BA you don't see international or domestic carries kicking down the door to get into OAK, even given its geographically closer to downtown San Francisco than SFO and less prone to fog issues. While SFO facilities are nothing close to spectacular they pull all of the dom...Jump to post
Let's be honest; despite all the posturing and excuses here, AS bought VX so JetBlue couldn't... end of story. Without the threat of B6, it is a (dubious) financial commitment that AS would never have made. It is pretty obvious and you know who made out like a felon financially. It might have also k...Jump to post

I think the only near-term expansion you'll see is an addition of another jetway behind Gate 1, dubbed Gate 1A. It's visible from where the old Gate 18 used to be. The last time ever saw any airline use Gate 1A was Aerocancun because it arrived around the same time as Martinair, whose 747-200 used G...Jump to post
I would be surprised to see QX/AS at CLD considering their operations at SAN.Jump to post
Corsair used to have a similar route, ORY-OAK-PPT using 747-SP's. Yeah, I was wondering if a French LCC wouldn't be better off using OAK as their stopover. SFO is just getting so packed. I don't know. With Level, growing Norwegian and BA (and Southwest and Volaris), the FIS facility at OAK is runni...Jump to post
The only airline that would make sense to interline would be WN. WN won't interline with ANYONE. That's the first thing I thought when I saw 'interlining' and 'OAK'. Nobody else is big enough at OAK even to bother with. I suppose SFO has too much congestion and cost for a new (and EAS) entrant but ...Jump to post

*FI MSP-KEF MAY 1.0>1.2
FI does something similar at SEA.
I didn't go to the board meeting this time around, as I didn't know which of the three to support. Without interline connectivity, I wouldn't be using the Boutique or Contour plans, as I would drive to PDX or the Bay Area if that is as far as I'd be going. The Great Lakes proposal to SMF would have...Jump to post
It appears that traffic growth in the region is at pretty good pace, with the AS E-175's to SBP and mainline to SBA. However, I would be surprised to see any further expansion from QX or OO with AS until they get things figured out with their flight crews.Jump to post
I think OAK, SJC, SAN are given.Jump to post
The cutover is a “drain down” method, where inventory on legacy VX flights stopped being sold a few months back for travel after 24APR18. Travel after that date can still be done on virginamerica.com but in the background you’re forwarded to alaskaair.com to be booked on the AS partition on 027 sto...Jump to post
