I want to see these heavy planes land at SAN.
It is interesting enough landing in a 757 or 321 on rwy 27. Not to mention the noise abatement restrictions.

Bottom line, San Diego needs a new airport farther from the center of the city.

Well, my closest airport doesn't have many long haul flights. Actually only one: HAM-EWR CO757 and HAM-DXB (various airplanes) And that's about it.
So, basically every long haul flight with a heavy would be nice and something different. DL used to fly 763s to HAM and Canada 3000 with 330s long time ago...

So I keep my fingers crossed that there will be more north American destinations will be available from HAM  pray

EK, yes. and No, the flight to JFK stopped. No more EK flight to JFK from HAM.

Currently they are using 773s IIRC.

Is YVR back to a CRJ-705 right now? Because it was being operated with an EMB-190 for a while.

SAN-MEX on MX or AM

I have NO clue why this route will not stay... I know TIJ is close, but there has to be some convenience factor for San Diegans to use SAN. You need a passport for land crossings now anyway, so there's no advantage of going to TIJ to fly to MEX anymore anyway, except I guess that you can fly a 777...

Quoting PanAm747 (Reply 5):

SAN-NRT on NH (maybe with the 787?)

That is supposed to be one of top list NH 787 destinations... of course, God knows when they will actually GET them.

SAN-YYZ-MNL on PR

I believe you're referring to SAN-YVR-MNL, which has been applied for, but can't be approved until the Philippines is reverted to FAA Cat I status...  banghead 

SAN-YYZ-MNL would be quite out of the way, wouldn't it  Wink

As for the others, obviously operational issues hurt Europe flights from SAN. The A340-600 actually could make a full payload to LHR or FRA (LH or VS), but the question is, could either airline fill an aircraft that big on a route from SAN?

As I said many times right in this forum, we need Middle East airlines operating direct flights from Barcelona.

As example:

BCN-DXB (EK)

BCN-DOH (QR)

BCN-AUH (EY)

BCN-BAH (GF)

(...)

And, flights to / from China...

I heard some months ago intentions of Hainan Airlines to start flights from BJS to BCN with an intermediate stop at any European city...

Has anyone new news?

Whoops! Those darn Y codes...easy to get them confused!! Thanks for correcting me...and yeah, SAN-YYZ-MNL would be a LONG way out of the way!!

Maybe the reason SAN can't keep a SAN-MEX route is the frequency offered by TIJ. There are so many flights offered at this curfew-less airport that it probably isn't cost-effective.

By the way, Volaris is offering bus transportation from TIJ airport to/from San Diego's Amtrak station. Interesting hook-up...

That would be what kills it. Takes nothing to make a land crossing into Mexico at Tijuana. But the land crossing coming back would suck.
