Which airlines are needed at your airport? Does your airport need flights to that city? Is there many businessman going to that city?

For a relatively small airport, we're spoiled for choices in airlines at BHM. We have:
American
Continental
Delta Connection
Northwest (mostly BAE 146s/Avro RJs, which seem exotic in a land of MD-80s and 737s)
Southwest
United Express
US Airways & America West

I can't think of another one we need.

We Need............... EVERY SINGLE AIRLINE!  Wink

As it is, YQQ has:
- Jazz
- WestJet
- Central Mountain Air
- Pacific Coastal

We Need:
- Horizon Air ( to SEA )
- Southwest or American ( to LAX or LAS )

San Francisco (SFO)




Thai Airways International
Many people here including myself love to visit Thailand and we do have a sizable Thai community here.

Aeroflot
But only if they bring back service with there IL-96.
San Francisco has a large Russian population and I am sure that Aeroflot can be successful when/if they return.

DTW (aka America's 330ville):

KE: I'm not 100% sure on how it would work, but seeing as how both are Skyteam hubs, I think they could make it work.

AZ: should be interesting if it does happen

B6!!!!

AM: There were so many rumors of them coming here. What happened to them? Their chrome 73Gs would be very welcome here at the McNamara terminal

so many A330s and a single 767. Damn you BA, you just had to get rid of our only 777.

I'd like to see B6 in ANC. Not that there's a market for them in the Winter . . . . or any other additional carriers in the winter, but I'd still like B6 here.

Why might you ask: Because I don't particularly care for WNs cattlecar environment and I'd like to see an LCC get into ANC to help drop fares. US comes here, but not with enough frequency and they (currently) suck for on time performance and just about everything else (except in cabin service). So they aren't a factor, one trip r/t ANC on US and no one wants to fly them again.

So, B6 it is.

Otherwise, ANC is pretty well covered . . . .

F9 already serves ANC seasonally. If there was a market, I'm sure F9 would go year-round. There is no market for that.

QQ does not, and likely will not. Much more fiscally responsible of AS to "codeshare" and "partner" with locally owned and operated carriers such as PenAir and Era. No loss to AS if either of those two run into trouble (like Era, which is currently under bankruptcy protection).

Realistically speaking (without the need for a runway extension) it would be great to have the following airlines at Plymouth;

Isles of Scilly Skybus with their DHC-6's to St Mary's.
Aurigny Airways with ATR42's to Guernsey.
KLM could use the F50 to fly to AMS.
VLM with the F50 to LCY. (Have actually heard some rumours about this one being true)
Aer Arran using the ATR42 for Dublin flights.
Eastern Airways - destinations like Birmingham and some in Scotland spring to mind.

I'll keep wishing  silly

At PHX, it would be nice to see more European carriers (LH come back, AF, KL) and even Asian carriers. But PHX competes with LAX/LAS and SAN. Eventhough PHX is bigger than the latter two, population wise.

Basically, from Barcelona, we need MORE TRANSCONTINENTAL FLIGHTS!!!

- Need flights to/from Asian destinations as BJS, PVG, TYO, CAN, BKK and SEL;
- Need another carrier to serve MOW (supposed to be announced in few days by Clickair) and other ex-Soviet cities (TBS, GYD, ALA, TAS, LED, RIX, ASB,...)
- Need many carriers to serve Africa (not only Morocco, Tunicia, Algiers and Gambia): Kenya, Ethiopia, Senegal, Mali, South Africa and other countries have a great demand to direct flights.
- Need another carrier to serve South America (most reliable than Air Madrid)

(...)

And Iberia CEO's (Fernando Conte) continues with it's monologue that BCN have not enough demand to put any transcontinental flight (here we have an idiot person). Let's remember when IB had a 763 flying daily from BCN to JFK. Loads factors of this flight were 97%!!!!!!

Would like some Asian airline besides for El Al, JAL or Korean would be nice, or CX.
Also maybe a B6 or F9, than Emirates would always be nice too. But MIA has most of what is needed.

The only one I could really see us needing would be either AirTran and/or Air Canada.

It would be nice to have more service from CO, though, rather than just 3 flights a day to IAH. A direct flight to EWR would be nice.

And I agree with you on Airtran.

Since CLT used to be my home airport, it would be really nice to see WN there.

MSY needs:

Taca/Copa-We have a large Central American population here.
Frontier-From what I heard, they did quite well before the storm.
Midwest-They also did well
Alaska-We need more west coast non-stops, SEA or PDX would be a nice compliment to this city
US Airways "west metal"-they need to bring back their non-stops to PHX and LAS, WN's frequency and schedule is horrible

Although I agree, I wonder if CO could even sustain such a route given that B6 already serves JFK? What would really benefit me would be a NW nonstop to DTW. However, again, I'm not sure if the market is there.

My guess as to why FL doesn't yet serve SMF would be because they don't have a very large presence on the West Coast, and they already serve SFO. Sure would be cheap having WN, B6, F9, and then FL!

Also, I note your in Folsom. Excellent choice, happened to be mine as well.

There is probably more but ADL has only a small amount of carriers flying internationally. The only main domestic carriers are QF, DJ and JQ which all serve ADL domestically and internationally (QF).
