A couple weeks ago I was looking at wikipedia and I saw the future paragraph in a Bradley intl Airport section: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradley_International_Airport
when I looked at it, it said after Terminal B is finished, JBU, TRS, and VRD were going to start service to Bradley. JBU was going to start service to Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. TRS was going to start service to Florida and Atlanta. Finally VRD was going to start service to San Francisco. To add on to it I heard from one of my friends at BDL that AFR might start service from LFPG. It has recently been taken away so I contacted Stacey M. Doan through e-mail: http://www.bradleyairport.com/Contact/
and they replied back saying that they were in the process of contacting new Airlines to start Service to BDL. so has anyone heard of these airlines making a move at BDL?

I have found Wikipedia information to be very sketchy. I have seen info get put up about future routes only to be pulled down within an hour. You will notice that all the future route info and such falls under the section where wiki says that the info below comes from unverified sources and to contact them if you know different. Last week there was a blurb about Singapore starting service thru LAX. I mentioned it here and within 20 minutes it disappeared. For some time it said B6 was going to by several gates when the new terminal is constructed. That info has disappeared. Last fall it said that LH and LOT were going to be starting service. That went away within a couple hours....... So on and so on.
Now having said that. I do believe that Europe service will come back when the recession ends. The market and the demand is there despite what some people here say. I also believe that B6 will make an appearance. I think they should do it sooner rather than later or someone else will come in and do it. that's my 2 cents.

once Terminal B is finshed the airlines should start coming in, but when is it predicted to be finished by? Airtran could also fly to destanations like MDW, SLC, places that bradley airport doesn't cover a lot of. would the flights be seasonal?

So B6 looks like its going to Operate at BDL, i know FL used to operate at KSWF and is still operating at HPN but how do they do it if those airprots also have delta going to Atlanta at them? and has Midwest looked into Bradley? there are no airlines flying to SLC from BDL right now.

Quoting Boeing71234567 (Reply 8): but how do they do it if those airprots also have delta going to Atlanta at them?
Those airports had only regional jet service, BDL has 6x mainline, and has had up to 10x mainline in the past. BDL-ATL is a VERY lucrative market for DL and they will throw everything they have at air tran to keep it that way.

Quoting RL757PVD (Reply 11): Im not so sure about that, their numbers were stellar with 2x CRJs towards the end then factor in all of the lost feed potential to connecting markets.
Right. If they get all the connecting feed back - which the 190s and Airbii allow them to do - there's no reason they can't make BDL work.
The reason I said 170s and not 50-seaters is that RP is going to have trouble consistently completing that flight; RP-operated flights of similar length, like STL-JAX, take pretty nasty weight restrictions when there is weather.
Quoting RL757PVD (Reply 11): 1) Denver return, (UA is by far the best candidate)
If YX and F9 harmonize ground handling and reservation systems, the return of YX probably makes it more likely that F9 could return.
