Just thought I would make a thread for everyone to post any information about new air service that will begin during the month of February. Anything new at your home airport? Just trying to boost awareness of new air service that people may have put in the back of their minds.

To start:

US returns to MLB with 3x daily CR7s to CLT.
UA adds service to PNS with daily service to IAD and (seasonal?) weekend service to ORD.

DL (Express) will re-enter the SAN-LAX market with 5x daily flights op'd w/ CRJs. (A 6th frequency is already set to be added in April.)

Just what we need, more RJs taking up runway time at SAN. Maybe it will last longer than LAX-GRU.

Here at LAX, we have lots of exciting service resumptions - but I don't think any of these additions are truly "new" though. Also, only the already-mentioned LAX-SAN DLC flights start in February, so I hope it was ok to add the spring and early summer into the mix.

- FL will resume flights to IND, giving us a convenient alternative to the less-than-daily DL service (which, like NW's LAX-MKE service, will probably be gone the moment competition heats up). FL will now offer a nice selection of flights to ATL, BWI, MKE, and IND from LAX. I wonder if they've given LAX-Florida (I bet LAX-MCO, LAX-FLL, or even LAX-RSW would be big hits!) much thought?  stirthepot 

- AZ resumes service once again, giving LAX-FCO another try this summer. If at first you don't succeed, try and try and try again...

- CO will offer new flights to OGG, an ever-popular getaway for Angelenos. Though there is considerable competition, it won't be hard to fill this new flight at all! Boy, that strange LAX-SAL flight didn't last long...

- As already mentioned, DL will add flights to SAN, ostensibly to feed its withering flight schedule from LAX. This airline is determined to make LAX work, but seems to prefer flying to cities like Columbus and Jacksonville over San Francisco and Chicago. Here's a novel idea - fly to the places people actually want to go!

- WN will resume transcontinental flights with a resumption of service to BWI. The WN crowd can reach LGA and BOS even easier than before! Also, STL will be served nonstop too.

- No new flights from AA, UA, or VX announced yet. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a long-awaited VX to ORD service!

As for other LA area airports, no additions at BUR (still waiting for WN to finally add DEN flights, and SFO would be good too!) or LGB (I hear a slot will be made available, let's see what happens there). At ONT, WN will be cutting its BNA flight (why did they ever fly BNA-ONT in the first place?!?!?) but adding DEN and MDW to more than compensate. Times are even better at SNA, where AC will be introducing the very first international service (to YYZ) and CO resuming flights to Hawaii with HNL and OGG to be served!



Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!

A friend of mine just hired on with Skywest for their new UA Express service to PAH from ORD, 2x daily on CRJ's.

why did they ever fly BNA-ONT in the first place?!?!?

At one point, there was quite a bit of business travel on that route with Nissan. That alone wouldn't keep it going, but I'm sure there was other stuff.

I think BNA is simply a good connecting point to the southeast and mid-Atlantic coast from the far west; ONT does not have HOU, AUS, STL nonstops/connecting points so BNA simply provides the best access to that whole "corner" of the country. Also, WN apparently has decided that the longer routes (including the returning transcons between BWI and SEA/LAX) can again be profitable -- depending on what fuel costs do this summer.

It will be interesting to see if this remains year-round or is just seasonal.

Southwest seems to have a very schizophrenic presence at BNA. For every new route or added service they announce, they drop routes or frequencies in others. ONT has been around for quite awhile. This'll put them down to just 2 n/s a day to the LA market.

Air France has begun Miami-Santo Domingo-Pointe Pitre service with an A320. The route is temporary as Port Au Prince remains closed.
