Wow! That’s a lot... I think DL has reached their milestone for now.. don’t look like they are gonna be doing much more expansion... I wouldn’t count of WN for much.. but would love to see 1 or 2 new airline but, alas, I think RDU is close to capacity... they could really use some more gates right about now...
It's a lot to believe that every single one of my predictions comes true, of course, but RDU is a very fast growing area with some particularly fast growing aviation markets (notably on the West Coast), so I think a few of my predictions will come to fruition. At the very least, I believe that daily SAN service is only a matter of time.
Also I know that when T2 was constructed ~10 years ago, it was built well above the necessary gate requirements at the time. Don't know if that's true today, but in a pinch I'm sure they can modify T1 like they did back in the old days and put some temporary gates there. You could then get F9 and G4 to relocate to that expansion.
Speaking of market stimulation, I'm curious to see how much the RDU-CDG O&D market has grown in terms of PDEW since the daily non-stop was introduced. LHR probably still leads that category by a long shot due to deep business ties, but it'll still be interesting to see how much the CDG demand catches up.
