I would think BUR has more than B6's transcon to JFK. I don't see why there wouldn't be any more than that.
And since BUR doesn't have any customs area, it has no int'l service.

International no, transcons yes - Jetblue to JFK.

BUR is a community airport that just happens to handle near 6mil annual passengers.

Not really. AS to SEA, AA to DFW, DL to SLC, and B6 to JFK. Those are the furthest destinations I believe.

There's las, jfk, dfw, slc, sea, den, etc.

mostly hubs to the west of the mississippi other than the jfk transcon. I wish CO would start an IAH flight, but if it hasn't happened by now, it likely won't.

According to Wikipedia, BUR has the following service:

jetBlue: JFK, SLC
Southwest: LAS, OAK, PHX, SMF, SJC
Skybus: CMH, GSO (starts Feb. 25)
USAirways: PHX
Mesa (USAirways): LAS, PHX
Alaska: PDX, SEA
Horizon: PDX
American: DFW
Skywest (Delta): SLC
Skywest (United): DEN, SFO
United: DEN, SFO

What I wouldn't give to see Froniter service from Denver in the future.



It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

And so my family and I doesn't have to drive down to LGB to fly to Florida, I'd like to see B6 add FLL service.

I'm sure if its up to the residents and city leaders airport would be primarily focused on GA traffic with a small number of commercial ops such as LGB.

This year Burbank/Glendale/Pasadena will have completed the FAA required Part 161 study, intended to eliminate nighttime flights at Bob Hope Airport, or basically putting teeth into the current voluntary curfew.
Interestingly BUR hopes to become one of the 1st airports in the nation impose a curfew since federal law changed on the subject.

Currently is the A300-600 with UPS followed by A310 of Fedex.

Right now, it's prob the A320. In the past, UA had 767's to ORD.

Whatever happened to the plan to build a new terminal in the old Lockheed plant area? I seem to remember 2 options: south of the current terminal, or across the runway (8/26).

A C-5 actually landed on that runway?? I'm impressed enough with the L1011 and A310 mentioned above. And if they're stealth fighters, how do you actually know if they are there to be picked up?  Smile

The F-117(as well as the SR-71,U-2,P-38,P-3 and various other airplanes) was built in Burbank. Before the Lockheed factory was leveled and turned into a parking lot.

Long time ago rejected by the community.

In 2000 voters approved a measure that prohibits any relocation, rebuild, expansion at BUR without receiving an impossible 2/3 approval of the public.

Somewhat sad as Lockheed has donated the land for the then proposed Spanish Mission style terminal which would have greatly improved things (and yes likely increased flights) while also solving some of the FAA safety concerns with the current terminal and aircraft parking being so close to runways.

Transcons to JFK and soon GSO. Nearly Transcon to GSO

Most major US carriers do serve BUR, and not just to California.

Not really. AS to SEA, AA to DFW, DL to SLC, and B6 to JFK. Those are the furthest destinations I believe.

UA to DEN, SX to CMH and soon GSO also come to mind

It is what the NIMBYs there would like to pretend BUR is, despite it being the main Los Angeles Airport for a time.

Quoting Orion737 (Reply 7):

Fedex flies in a regular A300-600 and UPS may still bring in a Super DC-8. United used to have a scheduled 762A to ORD. For current passenger service, I think the A320 may be it now that DL has pulled their 752.

Um, why not just go to LAX. If you are close to BUR, LAX has to be easier to get to than LGB.

Well, B6 was trying to grab United's corporate business with Disney without a forward cabin and extensive loyalty program. That wasn't going to happen. FLL, on the other hand, may work better because of the large cachement and higher yielding tourism

The C-5 is a very capable aircraft.

I thought the Skunk Works were relocated to Palmdale prior to manufacturing the F-117. It may have seen development in the Burbank location, however. I'm guessing you didn't get my "stealth" joke, though. "Various other airplanes" included the Electra and Constellation, of course! I think the L1011 was built out at Palmdale, too. I could be wrong.

It was but PSA operated the L1011 for a short time from Burbank. Those were the days! Funny how demand has slipped and they are mostly narrowbodies now.

Demand has far from slipped. What has happended is people, and airlines prefer frequency over size.

Just look at Southwest Airlines whom is the largest carrier at BUR -- they operate 17 daily nonstops BUR-OAK plus 10 to SJC -- while PSA would only have had 3-4 L-1011 trips back in the day before they opted back to frequency instead of size also.

All the F-117's were built in Burbank Plant B-6, prior to the move to Palmdale Plant 10.
