Starting Sept. 3, DL will reintroduce mainline service to PWM with a daily mad dog. I am very happy for PWM as this is the first legacy carrier to operate with mainline aircraft there for many years. Know, I'm waiting anxiously for ALB to get theres back. It'll come...eventually.

Good news for PWM. I hope more mainline starts heading in there. I'm sold on the fact that the E190 is the perfect aircraft for US Airways to send in there...

Hopefully this is a sign that the airlines are getting out of it..

Many years? NW sent DC-9-30s there just last year. And 2-3 years ago, US was sending in mainline from both DCA and PHL in-season.



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

One time, 3 years ago (if I can recall) I flew on a 733 PHL-PWM with 4 people onboard, all non-rev.

Summer. Memorial Day through Labor Day. PWM is one of my absolute favorite layovers during the summer. Great weather, delicious food, beautiful town, and nice people. The winter is just toooo cold for me up there!

You missed my sarcasm apparently.... But to ask, hell if I know. All I know is that from sept to November tourists come to all across new England to look at some dammed leaves. Why, I dont know. I see them year round and they've yet to do anything more then fall off the trees and make a mess of my yard.

Sorry if I missed this, but is the new mainline flight JFK-PWM or ATL-PWM? I assume it's JFK but didn't see it stated by the OP.

It's ATL.

DL 1662 Dep ATL 0935; Arr PWM 1210
DL 1557 Dep PWM 1250; Arr ATL 1546

Effective Sep 3rd, PWM will have 2x ATL (1x each MD88/CR7); and 4x JFK (3x 145, 1x CR2)

Actually looks like they cut the 3rd ATL but added the seats to the midday departure. 3x CR7 became 1x CR7 1x MD88. Im sure the fall season was a risk reducing factor in the decision too. PWM and BTV benefit more from the fall colors than places like PVD and BDL.

ALB gets it pretty good, better than BDL and PVD. If you you wanna see good leaves, fly to ALB, rent a car, and take the Adirondack Northway(I-87) to the Northern section of the Adirondacks. Or fly to ALB and take Amtrak's Adirondack North to Montreal. It's magnificent!

Anyway..... I'm hoping ALB will get the 737's back, or at least a Mad-Dog back on DL. Maybe after the merger..

Remember when Delta had mainline jets flying to to three ME airports?

In into the 90's, 757's were flying BOS-PWM.

I know PWM and BGR, but what was the 3rd airport to receive mainline? I'm guessing this goes back to Northeast days, but was it PQI or BHB?

I am going to sorta disagree. While BDL and CT sucks for color and tourism, you'll have people fly into BDL but then drive north here to MA to drive on Rte2/Mohawk Trail and go to the berkshires, thou then you split between ALB and BDL.

There are not three airports in Maine that can support main line aircraft.

In into the 90's, 757's were flying BOS-PWM.

Like 2 yrs. back, DL flew a 752 on the ALB-ATL route during certain weekends. So did UA.

In the late 90's DL flew a 762 during Feb. break.

Well, after DL merged with Northeast, there were aircraft owned by DL flying into Presque Isle, Bangor and Portland.

So what does that have to do with anything? 2 years ago DL was sending a daily 767 here. I dont see your point.
