US Airways is adding three new Saturday-only non-stop markets, including their first to MIA, this winter. All start 13 November 2004.

US 584 MIA 1300-1530 BWI 733
US 585 BWI 0930-1210 MIA 733

US 1288 FLL 1600-1824 BWI 733
US 1289 BWI 1230-1504 FLL 733

US 1142 BDL 1055-1351 FLL 733
US 1143 FLL 1450-1736 BDL 733

As mentioned, this is the first of the Saturday Florida flights for MIA. For Ft. Lauderdale, BDL and BWI are the third and fourth, joining Providence and Cancun. Still no word on when US Airways "big" FLL annoucement is supposed to happen. Hopefully soon...

US Airways is also one of two airlines starting FLL-BWI this winter. The other is Pan Am (III), who starts the route 29 December 2004 with four weekly flights (contiuing to St. Kitts & Nevis).

On another note, US Airways will also be ending two Saturday-only Florida routes: Richmond-Tampa and Richmond-Orlando, both operated by PSA CRJs, will end 6 November 2004.

BWI-MIA on Saturdays is a good route.

The FLL routes are a little puzzling. I'd expect BDL, and possibly even BWI, to be daily with the focus city, so I'm not sure why they're loading it in on Saturdays only right now, especially before the rest of the November schedule is done, and before the FLL announcement is made.

I've heard those routes were doing well. I think this is a result of the aircraft no longer being available on Saturdays, not a result of the routes performing poorly.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Yeah, boths route would be good for Saturday only service. I remember were use with metrojet serving from FLL-BDL & BWI from 3 years ago after 9/11.

the season picks up here in Florida just after New Years'... that's when you'll see most of the new growth.

Until then, all the Saturday traffic is aimed at capturing the cruise traffic.

Yeah, It is keeping new growth need to made more service from FLL-BWI & BDL. You'll will see about US Airways is doing so strong on the popular from FLL-BDL again and already DL is service to BDL.

Yeah, I'm suprised about FLL-BDL bleing Saturday only...song is bringing FLL-BDL back to 2X dialy and with no competion! The only thing stopping US from bringing it up to daily, I think is the low fare. DL could take song off that route and make a bundle flying RJs or mainline FLL-BDL daily, but instead they're charging $80! US is in no condition to jump into those routes with $80 fares daily, though, so I'm suprised, but I understnad why. Would've been nice, though, as I am flying to BDL in OCT or NOV!

Yes, definitley aimed at cruise traffic going to the Port of Miami. I hope this isn't the only Saturday-only they add from MIA. I don't expect many, but I think they may add one or two more.

The FLL routes are a little puzzling. I'd expect BDL, and possibly even BWI, to be daily with the focus city, so I'm not sure why they're loading it in on Saturdays only right now, especially before the rest of the November schedule is done, and before the FLL announcement is made.


I think we'll see it go daily, along with PVD, as the focus city announcement comes about.

There are just about as many ships with Sunday departures from Miami and Port Everglades as Saturday but additionally the big timeshare industry in So. Florida typically switches weeks on Saturdays. Delta Express left a big vacancy when it scrubbed 2 daily successful flights with 737-200s from PVD after 9-11 when the Express div. started to shrivel. Other lines with one stop through flights and connecting service absorbed the traffic and presumeably, some was lost up North to BOS. Air/Sea pax. are not fond of changing planes as there is additional risk of loosing baggage with their ball gowns in them! Hopefully PVD will be on the roster.

US Airways has been offering Saturday FLL-PVD non-stop since June. They have done very well. Or were you referring to them starting MIA-PVD Saturday service?

MAH4546. I meant making the Sat. only PVD-FLL a daily thing. There is another thread around which alludes to a LCC, not presently represented at PVD as being rumored to jump on that route. Additionally, another thread around deals with AA finally (maybe) giving Southern NE access to Carib. and Latin America via MIA. Traditionally AA, I beleive has never wanted to offer too comprehensive a schedule at PVD in order to keep its BOS operation robust. DFW last year, and RDU flights this Summer may signal a slightly different direction?

Oh, okay. Sorry about that.

Spirit will be announce PVD-FLL, PVD-DTW, and PVD-RSW this week.

The MIA-PVD flights more have to with AA's MIA build-up. They want to make one-stop connections to the Caribbean a lot easier. Currently US offers far many one-stop connections, and AA needs to play catch up. Though, yes, AA seems to have been expanding at PVD lately, with DFW and RDU. PVD-MIA is happening soon, just no date set yet. If it is going to launch this winter, we'll know the answer by the end of August.

I am really excited about PVD getting all these new destinations.. when do they, however, plan on starting their renovations again? It seems that the urgency of it has increased?




Aiming High and going far..

Pan Am is coming to BWI AGAIN? It will be nice to see the 727s again, but as always, I wonder how long this will last.

US AIRWAYS INTRODUCES NEW NONSTOP FLORIDA ROUTES AND EXPANDS GOFARES NETWORK

ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 16, 2004 -- US Airways® today announced new nonstop flights to Florida beginning Nov. 13, 2004, introducing three new GoFares® markets and increasing the airline’s "point-to-point" flying to key leisure markets.

US Airways will offer low, simple GoFares on its new nonstop roundtrip Boston-Orlando service, with fares starting at $72* one-way, and last-minute fares as low as $179* one-way. From Orlando, US Airways currently operates nonstop service to 16 destinations.

US Airways will begin new nonstop roundtrip service to Fort Lauderdale from both Hartford, Conn., and Baltimore/Washington International (BWI). Hartford-Fort Lauderdale GoFares start at $108* one-way, and last minute fares are available for as low as $194* one-way. BWI-Fort Lauderdale fares start at $79* one-way, and last minute fares begin at $188* one-way. From Fort Lauderdale, US Airways currently flies to six nonstop destinations.

US Airways will also begin new nonstop service between BWI and Miami, as well as Fort Myers-Columbus, Ohio, service. All new Florida flights will operate each Saturday using 126-seat Boeing 737-300 aircraft.

"Approximately 25 percent of travel from the Northeast is to Florida, and these new routes and fares support that demand," said Andrew P. Nocella, US Airways vice president of network and revenue management. "Florida point-to-point flying plays an important role in our Transformation Plan, and we look forward to even more expansion to this highly popular region of the country."

*US Airways’ GoFares are simple, however, in addition to the fare, the federal government requires that the company collect a tax of $3.10 every time a customer takes off on one of US Airways’ planes, plus $2.50 per segment, up to $10 per trip (the September 11th Security Fee). Some of the airports that customers might visit also charge up to $4.50 for passing through, but the total is capped at $18 per trip. The lowest fares must be purchased seven or 14 days in advance, are one-way, and are nonrefundable. Last minute fares are refundable, and are also one-way. Other restrictions may apply. For more details, see usairways.com/gofares.

US Airways has many other airline partners, and a part of a GoFare or any other trip might be on one of the partner’s airplanes. These GoFares are available for travel on the US Airways Express® carriers Air Midwest, Chautauqua, Colgan, Mesa, Piedmont, PSA, Shuttle America or Trans States, and MidAtlantic Airways. A flight also might be operated by our Star Alliance partner United Airlines®. For all of the details about GoFares, including a few other restrictions, please go to usairways.com.

US Airways introduced the first phase of its GoFares in Philadelphia on April 29, 2004, and GoFares are now available on 22 routes to and from Philadelphia and 39 routes from Washington, as well as between New York (LaGuardia) and Fort Lauderdale. More information about GoFares markets is available online at usairways.com/gofares.

US Airways is the nation’s seventh-largest airline, serving nearly 200 communities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. US Airways, US Airways Shuttle and the US Airways Express partner carriers operate over 3,300 flights per day. For more information on US Airways flight schedules and fares, contact US Airways online at usairways.com, or call US Airways Reservations at 1-800-428-4322. ©2004 US Airways, US Airways Express, and GoFares are registered trademarks of US Airways, Inc.

Providence sure is making headlines recently. These are exciting times for PVD. We had our 2nd highest July ever last month with 548,030 passengers, second only to our banner year in 2001, where we eclipsed 5.5 million passengers to establish our all-time high. Southwest pulled in 200,000-plus for the 2nd month in a row, and will do so again this month, and possibly several more times for the rest of the year. Independence starts next Monday, and this news about Spirit is really blowing my mind (i'm so glad i started that thread!)

MAH, I do have to echo Scotty's post...when did you hear that NK would be making the announcement this week?

Looks like more and more of the US 733s used on the now (or future) discontinued PIT routes are coming to CMH! This is the 2nd announcement of new mainline destinations (DCA, RSW) from CMH in the last 2 months, both with 733s.

Besides AA, you can now fly non-stop BWI-MIA on FL each and every Saturday and Sunday. And beginning in November, you will have the opportunity to fly FL each and every day non-stop from BWI-MIA!; this does not include the several daily non-stops from BWI-FLL.

 Big thumbs up
