So, the last two times I was at Delta's Terminal A in Boston, we departed from/arrived at a gate next to an unusual visitor - a Futura International Airways 737-800 (in particular, EI-DND both times, I believe). Of course, I'm curious as to why that particular airline might have been visiting Boston -- does anyone have any information?

Well, yes, I understand who they are, and I figured it might have been a charter, but the same aircraft was there on two separate days five days apart (2/24 & 2/29) -- parked at the A Satellite at nearly midnight on the latter.

During the Winter, you will see quite a few a/c from European charter airlines being operated in the US. These European carriers will lease them out to US carriers in the Winter as for trips to sunny destinations, it is the high season in the US while it is the low season in Europe. Here are some examples:

Transavia 737s leased to Sun Country:

The Massport website has the most up-to-date information on what is happening at BOS. It is rare for a new airline to start flying into BOS without the news stations and papers reporting very heavily on it. This flight must have been a charter.

Ahhhh, that makes all manner of sense. It looks like they're doing a bunch of charters from BOS down to CUN, PUJ, and AUA. I'm a tiny bit surprised they were at Terminal A though I suppose the flights from AUA pre-clear.

Except for the flight tracking section...I think it absolutely blows.

I completely agree. When I was stuck in ATL last December when we had a snowstorm, the Massport website had nothing about delays listed at all. My flight was cancelled.

Yes, to confirm EI-DND has been operating for Ryan Intl. It goes to CUN, PUJ, and AUA on Saturday & Sundays. 3 round trips in 49 hours then ferries out for some midweek stuff elsewhere. It operates on behalf of TNT Vacations, Delta is the ground handler for TNT flights. PUJ & CUN flights arrive Terminal E and tow to A.
