Quite a few reductions to Brazil, from DL ending GRU to JJ ending GIG and FOR. However, GOL gives DL customers great connectivity to Brazil and vice versa.

Quite an impressive year. Growth will slow until C opens, theres going to be a lot of reshuffle going on with airlines, I would assume well hear about this in 2019.

Hopefully, 2019 is the year we get a daily flight to Paris on Delta or AirFrance, with Delta being the most likely option of the two.

Also curious to see who takes a stab at LHR first, has to be either BA or Delta and friends (VS).

Would like to hear of an Asia announcement, I dont guarantee well get it before MIA though. Itll be tough to reach Africa and East Asia from MCO.

Happy New Year


My 2019 predictions:
*F9 will continue to add and drop destinations
*NK will add CRW/IAG/PBG and some more cities with no current NK service (I would like to see Key West added)
*DL add CDG
*No crazy adds or big expansions due to space constraints

Do you think Moxy is going to use SFB, DAB, MCO, MLB....?

My pick is SFB. DAB and MLB are an hour plus away from Orlando so doubt those two would be used. MCO is out of the question.

Figured it would be. They'd probably use PIE instead of TPA too.

Still wonder who is going to take the first stab. DL should do CDG, VS should do LHR. Although, most would probably disagree and say that BA should do LHR. Is the 777 too much plane? VS could do the A332 but wouldn't that have to rotate through MAN?

What a huge spike in international traffic!

https://orlandoairports.net/press/2019/ ... -november/


November 2018 Statistical Data:

International passenger traffic spiked 23.98 percent to 563,110 travelers in November
Domestic traffic also climbed 8.12 percent with a total of 3,486,779 passengers for the month
Combined, overall traffic increased by 10.08 percent with 4,049,889 travelers at MCO
On a rolling 12-month period, Orlando International recorded 47,362,900 total passengers, an all-time high for MCO

Nice!

Internationally I think someone needs to add PUJ for the Caribbean, it seems like a decent void that could be filled.

In Europe we could probably get DUS back, Spain service with Norwegian doesnt seem far fetched at all.

I dont think we can support anything to Africa, not a lot of African people in the Orlando area, or not enough to support a flight.

I obviously think Asia isnt far fetched either. Theres still a few places we can go internationally.

I'd say SFB too, but then again Neeleman took a liking to DAB for some reason and mentioned it periodically during his time with jetBlue despite the fact that it was announced on Barger's last day. I wouldn't rule out DAB with them.

How is CLT doing this year in terms of growth? With the growth at MCO, this should move them past CLT into the top 10 busiest airports in the US.

At this point, it's getting pretty ridiculous. Not gonna lie, GOAA is doing a pitiful job if they can't even secure a less than daily flight to LHR on a 787 while flying bucket loads of 747's, 777's and A330's to every other city in the UK.

I am an Oakland, California dweller originally hailing from Orlando, and i'm really enjoying the daily bi-directional non-stop service between OAK/MCO that went daily in Q3 2018. It makes visiting family that much easier, and allows me to cash in all my WN A-list points earned from flying up/down the west coast.

Anecdotally, having taken the direct flight 4x roundtrip since it was introduced, each flight was a mixed bag of completely full to getting my own row for poor man's business class. It is usually a 738 heading east and usually a 73G heading west, but there are exceptions. Usually lots of Disney kids on each flight too. Here's to hoping it sticks around for the long run.

Anyone know how it is performing? Is Southwest going to cut this type of route once they start Hawaii flights?

Right? If virgin can send like 3 747s daily from like Manchester, surely they can get one medium widebody.

It will only happen if the airlines can make more money using the scarce LHR slots flying to MCO than they could flying elsewhere... Maybe when the 3rd runway gets built...

I was flipping through the March schedule for DL here at MCO and saw BDL will get the 717 on the Saturday flight, so that was neat. I think they did it to MCI a few years back too. I assume with the 717's leaving the west coast, we can see some natural capacity increases by DL. I also see the E7W scheduled in there to MKE and BNA so it's not something we normally see.

UA also has 757's going to every hub except IAD. I'm ready for my 757 fix between DL and UA. Unfortunately, the 757 era seems over for AA here at MCO.

Also, F9 took the first stab at MCO-PUJ. I really hope this service works. We want to go to beaches that aren't our own. I get tired of Cocoa Beach and Anna Maria Island.

WN only currently does 119 daily departures out of MCO on weekdays, and WN has enough room to operate at least 170 daily departures out of MCO since WN currently uses 17 gates at MCO. There is also plenty of room to add extra gates in Airside 2 at MCO if needed for further WN expansion.

There are still some a few more nonstop routes that could still be added by WN at MCO such as MCO-CUN, MCO-LAX, MCO-PUJ, and MCO-SEA. WN could also extend MCO-CVG, MCO-CLE, and MCO-MSP nonstop service to daily nonstop service from Saturday-only nonstop service.

Tell me about it! And forget MAN, they have seasonals to Belfast, a city I had never heard of and actually had to look up because I had never heard of it before this flight. I'm not doubting Belfast's ability to have an MCO flight, but what I am doubting is the claims that Orlando business can't support one LHR flight. Honestly, that's utter horseshit, there's a pretty respectable sized list of companies in the CFL area that have nothing to do with the tourism industry that could easily support MCO-LHR. The only reason I can think for this not having happened already is that GOAA has just straight up made no effort whatsoever to start such a flight. When CHS-LHR exists, an argument about slots at LHR holds no water because its pretty obvious when BA needs a slot, they can magically find one. I'm sure if someone bothered to do the research, there is no other city in the US with BA, LH, and EK that doesn't have service to LHR. At the rate BA is starting dartboard routes, TPA may actually beat MCO to the punch for LHR (But I'd still be just as happy).

Some of you sound really ungrateful. Lots of cities would love service to London no matter the airport. Why is LGW so awful for you? If BA and VS could make good money flying to LHR from MCO then they would do it.

It's more of a need in terms of business and higher end leisure pax that the flight is needed for. We have too many flights to LGW, someone can suffice one to swap with LHR. YYZ and LAS does it with BA, and I think with DL's footprint here and VS's footprint in England, this would be a great route for that JV.

WN hasn't added a number of destinations from MCO in a while and just because they have the capacity don't look for them to start adding stuff. There may be room at AS2 but not enough to move one of the bigger airlines over (NK or F9). The space constraint issue is a self-inflicted issue GOAA brought upon themselves by not properly managing their assets.

There is way more leisure traffic coming in and out of MCO than business traffic. Yes it would be nice to see a LHR flight but it isn't going to happen unless the business demand can justify a LHR slot and right now it can't.

Spirit has been coming in and leaving out of Airside 1 &4 lately on top of their regular Airside 3. DL is using basically all of 4 especially for RON's. B6 sometimes uses the 80 gates for international arrivals. What a mess this whole gate situation is. C can't come any quicker.

Adding LAS and then MCO before ORD is completely illogical. Not that this would prevent them from starting it or anything because if they had logic, ORD would have been added a long time ago and LY is definitely pursuing some form of a dartboard strategy these days.

El Al is considering direct/nonstop TLV-MCO flights.


Not a route I would have guess gets added before some other cities. But it would be nice to see LY in MCO.

Adding LAS and then MCO before ORD is completely illogical. Not that this would prevent them from starting it or anything because if they had logic, ORD would have been added a long time ago and LY is definitely pursuing some form of a dartboard strategy these days.


LY must be scared of UA United opening a ORD non stop TLV flight

And as long as CLT didn't grow by more than 3.9%, this would make MCO the 10th busiest airport in the US. Based on CLT's pax numbers from January to November, it would be a safe bet that MCO will pass them. The majority of their months saw only a single percentage point increase in traffic, two months had a contraction, with only two months above 4% growth in passenger traffic.

NK added a 5th DTW, F9 added a 2nd. On Saturdays DL will run 8, NK will run 5, F9 will run 2 and and will run 1. The MCO-DTW market is strong in March and April.

The breakdown is:
DL- 6x 757, 1x 753, 1x 321
NK- 4x A320, 1x A321
F9- 1x A321, 1x A320
WN- 1x 738

This is such a fun route to watch in the winter because airlines always underestimate it. There was only supposed to be 7 DL flights, 4 NK, no F9 flights on Saturdays, and a WN 737. All of these changes were made within the last month.

I guess it's a fact, people love getting arrested at our airport! Lol. Can't be as bad as the nude guy who was running around DAB's baggage claim. :lol:
