I was wondering if there was going to be a sixth Minnesota aviation thread.

So if DL and NW merge what affect will this have at MSP, STC, DLH, or RST?

I would guess DLH, STC, RST would see basically no change, but it does seem possible that they'll add RST/DLH-ATL or maybe even SLC. SLC much less likely.

At RST and DLH, where mainline is essentially guaranteed by NW because of some Mayo agreement (with RST) and because, well, they can... might we see 738s, MD-88s? DLH maybe, RST probably not.

I have one.

Kind of interesting to think about how MSP will look like after the merger. We go from Red tails to Blue and red tails.

I wonder what will happen with the whole 2020 plan. It really banked on NW expanding heavily from Lindbergh. But I think that expansion will be limited as it looks like NW/DL will further build up DTW, ATL and expand Asia ops out of SEA and LAX. This would leave MSP out to dry. Upside is that DL could further expand its regional network to connect MN, WI and the Dakotas to ATL.

Far too many red tails, though.  Wink

Yeah. I've been in the MSP area before and saw nothing but red tails landing. And with the merger with DL you will have nothing but those in a while. That's what makes BOS so great: a focus city for FOUR major airlines, 13 European carriers, and then some others. When I go planespotting I always see AA, DL, US, and B6, but it's always a grab bag.

With the merger maybe we'll see some competition enter. I'd love to see WN and B6 enter. I haven't been to MSP itself (I was in Minnesota for four days- I saw the Mystery Cave and Spam Museum near ROC, the MOA, and a scenic railroad in Duluth. I flew into DSM) but it is on my list of places to go back to. If B6 were to fly MSP-BOS I would love that. Parts of Minnesota are so much like parts of Massachusetts except:

1. No ocean.
2. As I said earlier, not as good for planespotting.
3. In MSP people are "Minnesota-nice" whereas in BOS people are "Massholes".
4. It's 20 degrees colder in MSP than it is in BOS.

I also have to thank Minnesota for bringing us Mystery Science Theater 3000. I loved that show!

Hi everyone!
First off this is my first post. I have been a lurker for a while reading and looking at many of the pictures.
Love the Boeing 787 pictures that were taken in the hangar while they were being built.
Yes I am from Minnesota and I thought I would jump in and add my 2 cents on Minnesota avation.
Big Sun Country fan here! They are one of the best Airlines I believe MSP has. Flown on them and thought the service was excellent. Hopefully they will expand service to some other destinations from MSP and even perhaps out of DFW with the way American Airlines has been acting as of late with all of their extra charges on different stuff.
Who wants to fly these days with costs the way they are?
Hard to believe Rochester is the only Airport other then MSP to have another Airline then just Northwest. Every other Minnesota Airport has Northwest. Suprised no one has stayed in Duluth since it seems that the people have been supporting that other Airline when they put the right aircraft on that route. First American Eagle tryed service then Midwest Connect I believe was the most recent one who tryed service to Duluth.

117 PremoBrimo : IcelandAir is suspending the daily KEF-MSP flight a little longer this winter. They are making some route/employee cuts. The flight will be suspended
118 SNCntry32 : Do they make money here in MSP?
119 KaiGywer : I would assume so since it keeps coming back
120 Af773atmsp : When did Icelandair begin service to MSP? Why did they choose MSP?
121 SYfan100 : They have been serving MSP for many years now. I can't even recall when they first started service to MSP with there Boeing 757s. For many years they
122 Af773atmsp : I think Icelandair ended service to BWI.
123 SYfan100 : You maybe right on that part. For a while they were serving BWI. Icelandair to me is just like SunCountry. They give travelrs another choice when fly
124 Af773atmsp : What other flights or routes might be dropped at MSP because of high oil prices?
125 SNCntry32 : MSP-CDG
126 AllegiantAir : How about the 14 minute MSP-STC "shuttle"? That might go away, huh? It's only an hour if you take I-94.
127 MAH4546 : bmi never once seriously considered Minneapolis. Nothing ever stopped British Airways from flying to MSP. Minneapolis was a Heathrow gateway under Be
128 SYfan100 : The only problem is the people up in St.Cloud would throw a big fit like a baby does when it wants to be rocked for nap time. Notice how no Airline h
129 Af773atmsp : Sorry I meant to say asked the U.S. Department of Transportation to start MAN/LHR-MSP but in the thread about it, people said BD was submitting many
130 SYfan100 : A daily British Airways plane landing at MSP would have been fun! The picture takers would have been fighting it out for the best spot to take the pi
131 Af773atmsp : Too bad BA didn't try LGW-MSP when NW suspended MSP-LGW during bankruptcy.

134 SNCntry32 : Glad to hear everyone is okay!
135 AllegiantAir : Ya really! The plane is a shame though, it was a unique addition to the hangars of AXN.
136 SYfan100 : Nice to see no one was hurt. Will be interesting to find out what made the engine have problems all of a sudden.
137 AllegiantAir : Ya! That plane had been in the repair shop a lot, or so it seems, so there must have previously been a faulty piece of equipment. I'll probably swing
138 SYfan100 : Just one of those aircraft just like many Airlines have that just end up in the shop time after time again with some sort of problem then.
139 SNCntry32 : A little birdy told me today that if SY doest get $55 Million or so from the state, they will be forced to shut down..
140 AllegiantAir : I heard something like that with F9 too. Come on State of Minnesota....give SY a chance!! We're sick of the color red!
141 SYfan100 : Don't worry the state will come threw for SY if they need a loan. Like I have told people for months now out in public at different times that I trus
142 SYfan100 : Saw a couple of Air National Guard planes taking off the other night from MSP. Also I think United has a 757 flying from ORD and DEN this time of year
143 NWA ARJ : They have quite a few C-130's based at MSP. They do alot of flying throughout the state. They come up to FAR alot too. Call signs are Viking and Goph
144 SYfan100 : All you diversion fans get ready for the end of this week since already this morning Thursday the 10th of July round number one of thunderstorms went
145 SYfan100 : Does anyone no how the new Mesaba service is doing to Iowa? I was thinking about that pilot and FA that were caught in the woods with how maybe they s
146 Af773atmsp : Did all the Champion Air 727s leave MSP?
147 SNCntry32 : Hmpf. Dont know. I would assume sooo.... :-(
148 Af773atmsp : I wanted to take one last photo of a Champion Air 727 at MSP but didn't find time to.
149 SNCntry32 : It was ashame to see them go. . Minnesota has quiet the rich avaiation history if you ask me.
150 SYfan100 : Out of all the aircraft from in the past and even flying today my most favorite out of the entire bunch is the Boeing 727-200. I always liked that air
151 Tys777 : I'd hate to see it go away, I've used that flight to visit my fiancee in the winter around christmas, didn't want them to deal with the weather/traff
152 Af773atmsp : I liked the loudness on takeoff. My favorite aircraft I saw at MSP was the Champion Air 727s. Now that they're gone my favorite is the 744. My favori
153 Tys777 : I always enjoyed seeing them whenever flying through there. sure are going to miss them. I really love SY's scheme, saw two of them parked for a few
154 SNCntry32 : Was it the hybrid or the regual scheme?
155 Tys777 : regular, they showed up on a Friday, left on Sunday....I home visiting my parents, and thankfully they understand my love for aviation. Made detours
156 Af773atmsp : Is SY's 737-700 still in the Aloha paint scheme?
157 CIDflyer : Sorry but I beg to differ. Why would DL want to abandon the MSP hub? It will be the one hub which will have a true centralized location in the countr
158 SNCntry32 : They doo! A pretty nice looking hybrid! Do we know how many flight banks MSP has? I want to say 16...
159 SYfan100 : Will SunCountry keep that Boeing 737-700 threw September then return it to whoever they got it from? The concern bye many is that Delta will cut MSP d
160 Af773atmsp : When DL cuts will we see another "that makes a hub stronger" speech by Richard Anderson like what is happening at CVG?
161 Af773atmsp : US Airways used an A321 PHX-MSP. Will MSP be getting US A321 service or is just temporary? Also a North American Airlines 752 departed from MSP to ANC
162 SYfan100 : Might be temporary as most of those flights are on Airbus 320s the last time I saw. With a few Boeing 737-300s thrown in the mix once in a while. Sur
163 Af773atmsp : Could AM start MEX-MSP with one of the E-190s they have on order?
164 SYfan100 : If it has the range to do MEX to MSP then yes.
165 Tys777 : uhh, they have been chopping routes mainly out of CVG, and most of those flights are on regional jets, which we all know are not the easiest planes t
166 AllegiantAir : Man I wish I was on that flight...I'd love to spend some time in Alaska chasing down and photographing those beautiful bush planes!
167 Af773atmsp : A Royal Air Force L-1011 landed at MSP. Its parked at the hanger next to runway 17/35.
168 SNCntry32 : Thats the second time it has been here IIRC.
169 Af773atmsp : Where does the Royal Air Force L-1011 come from and where does it go after leaving MSP?
170 Bobnwa : Do you seriously proposing that the price of oil hasn't led to AA,CO,UA and US canceling service including at their hubs?
171 SYfan100 : Cuts have been made on those Airlines do to the oil prices. United is pretty much getting rid of the Boeing 737s. While American is sending alot of t
172 SYfan100 : Isn't MSP a stop though for alot of those type of aircraft at times? Refuel while having lunch at the Mall of America. Then fly off to their final de
173 Af773atmsp : I wish someone would take over mspupdate.com. I really miss that website.
174 SYfan100 : I thought about doing something like MSP update. But I am not that good on computer stuff.
175 SYfan100 : Trying to work on something else that is even more fun with avation.
176 Af773atmsp : UA is closing their Red Carpet Club at MSP. I guess that means there won't be a Red Carpet Club at the Humphrey Terminal when they move.
177 SYfan100 : Do people even really use those clubs anyways now days? The FAA put a flight restriction around the Xcel center during the Convention with private pl
178 Af773atmsp : Anyone know a website that I can find information about an incentives to LH to start MSP-FRA?
179 Tys777 : wait a second, UA is moving? is anyone else heading over that way? and what will happen to UA's gates, also, what is expected to happen to DL's gates
180 CIDflyer : IIRC, the plan is/was to move all non-Skyteam Airlines over to the Humphrey terminal, leaving the Lindbergh terminal all NW/DL/CO. Now that CO will b
181 SNCntry32 : Its not called the 2020 plan for nothing. All expansion to the airport and misc. office type stuff will be taken care of by 2020. I didnt even know U
182 Af773atmsp : Will F9 stay at MSP? I heard the loads on MSP-DEN were very low.
183 Tys777 : how many gates are they planning on expanding the Humphrey to? Surely 10 isnt enough.
184 SNCntry32 : They are all common use. I think 10 are pleanty.
185 Af773atmsp : And there is room for another four gates if demand grows at the Humphrey Terminal.
186 Af773atmsp : Today my mom said she saw a 747 that didn't have a red tail. She said it had a blue tail and also grey colors. Could it be a UA 747 that diverted to M
187 SNCntry32 : Exactly. Chapion's counters are all empty, and lets hope that SY's wont be empty anytime in the near future
188 Tys777 : I know you said they are common use, but would the legacy's go for that? or would they want their own dedicated gates? And be willing to pay for such
189 SYfan100 : SY will need more gates in the future for future expansion on their destinations from MSP. That 20/20 plan should be on the delay list for now. If the
190 Af773atmsp : There is an Antonov freighter parked at MSP right now near the Humphrey Terminal and the NW hangar. Anybody know why its here? Which cities might get
191 SNCntry32 : I think they would have too. Unless like you said, if they wanted to pay. The HHH terminal has worked for multiple airlines using a common use system
192 Tys777 : amen to that
193 Avro7 : I'll second that report. No explanation, though.
194 Af773atmsp : Maybe start a new thread on July 23rd since thats when the first Minnesota aviation thread started.
195 AllegiantAir : Otherwise I'm up for it. Oh if they are common use it's plenty!
196 SYfan100 : What would be nice to see them do year round service to Boston, Anchorage like you mentioned. New destinations like NAS, Grand Cayman, Houston and Sa
197 SNCntry32 : Ahh, Were celebrating a year.. SY- They need to focus on surving the present before they need to focus on surviving the future.
198 SYfan100 : I agree with that 150%. Would United ever consider starting service from ORD to St.Cloud with ERJ-170s? Or what about ORD to Duluth with a ERJ-170?
199 Af773atmsp : Wasn't service from Duluth to DEN also on the to-do list for DLH? Tomorrow I'll be leaving for northern Minnesota (near Duluth). I'll be back on July
200 AllegiantAir : Very fun Northern Minnesota is a great place for scenery and aviation alike. Maybe you'll be able to stop by DYT and see some of Minnesota's finest b
201 Post contains links AllegiantAir : Anyone else think it's odd that Great Lakes Airlines doesn't serve somewhere in Minnesota? I mean..look at their route map! North Dakota, South Dakota
202 Af773atmsp : ZK used to serve MSP with a Beech 1900. I don't know which routes ZK served at MSP.
203 AllegiantAir : Yup, they sure did. I remember seeing those B1900s parked among all the Mesaba SF34s. IIRC, they had flights to DEN with a stop in Dakota land or the
204 KaiGywer : I know they did Brokings, SD for sure.
205 PremoBrimo : Their check-in counters used to be at the far end of the terminal. Houlihan's will be open in it's spot by the fall. This will be MSP's first restaura
206 SYfan100 : I am glad to see a restaurant open pre-security. But just like all the rest I have a feeling they will have higher prices on their food then most of t
207 NWA ARJ : Highly unlikey. ZK's only hub left is DEN. As well as Watertown, SD. I have a few friends that work at ZK and they tell me that cant add many more ne
208 SNCntry32 : I remeber those... MSP what a classy airport.. Where is this going to be? I cant imagine a resturant pre security anywhere, where is the room in this
209 Post contains links PremoBrimo : It is at the far north end of the check-in area. I agree, it is in a weird spot. But it really is the only spot for any type of restaurant pre-securit
210 SYfan100 : They also did a few North Dakota Cities also I think. Jamestown and Devils Lake. Now Mesaba flies to at least some of those destinations that Great L
