Some Sched updates

PVD-MSP will be mainline an an A319 this summer, first time in a few years for that

PVD-ATL will be 4x MD88 CR7 CR9 CR7 - CR7s are showing 9 F seats

PVD-DTW will be MD88 CRJ CR9 DC9 ERJ

So though CVG is gone, the remaining cities have a more robust schedule than the past few years have.

Regarding B595's post Reply #238 from the earlier thread.

Is it me or does that Vision Airlines' c/s look like a rip-off of WN's earlier scheme?

Hmmm, now that you mention it, they are pretty close. Just take the Vision scheme, change the white to olive and put olive on the upper half of the engine cowling....

Yay! My first thread that has gone onto a "Part Two"! I keep checking every so often about B6 and BOS. They said this is going to be the "summer of Boston" and while they've added frequencies, they haven't any new routes in a while. I wonder when any new news is going to come? May is when the PUJ route starts and SJC resumes, but they should be starting something soon. DCA is a given should the swap go through.

B6 continues to advertise heavily in the Boston area, especially on the MBTA. Buses have now been given complete JetBlue wraps and they are touting increased service to CLT, BWI and ORD on Green Line trains.

I would like to see them bring back PHX on a season basis, say October through March or April.

They should jump on that before WN does, they missed the boat with PHL, they shuld have cut them off at the pass there rather than try and compete with them at BWI.

I'll ask again since the other thread got closed, any info on Obama's visit up to Maine this week? Anyone know what aircraft he'll be taking and where it will be landing? I would assume Marine One, if anything, would visit PWM.

Obama will be landing at Pease AFB on Thursday aboard Air Force 1 (duh.) I can only assume from the media that means VC-25A. He'll then be taking Marine One to PWM. I'll stick around to see Marine 1 after work on Thursday...bummer I can't get down to Pease to spot. Thursday's gonna be a beautiful day, someone should get down to Portsmouth and snag a few photos!

I have to think it does. It could mean a whole lot of things. I foresee more connecting traffic on AA's BOS-LHR flights and during the summer BOS-CDG.

From what I have been hearing the flights have been operating normally. I-95 and the Airport connector are still closed. The airport is best accessed via Post Road from north and south.

The Flooding had not encroached on any area of the airport or the intermodal facility.

I see that DL has exited the BOS-YHZ market leaving it to AC with two flights a day. DL will still have 1 a day to LGA and also DTW.

Only a couple of years ago DL had 3 flights each way BOS-YHZ and before that BEX with several a day. And at one time NW Airlink (Northeast Express) had the Maritimes pretty well covered out of BOS to YSJ, YFC, YYG, YHZ and up to five flights a day to YQM (Moncton). Some even up-gauged from Metroliners to Dash-8s.

Now it seams that just about everything overflies BOS from YHZ going to JFK (AA) EWR (CO) IAD (UA) and soon PHL (US) Also, DTW (DL) and ORD (UA)

Thanks for the pics at the airport. By chance, I got to see the motorcade go down I-295 back to the airport. We were stopped for about a half hour at the I-295/Fore River Parkway overpass. I was so upset with myself that I didn't think to bring my camera, although I was ultimately hoping to make it to the other side of 295 before they blocked it off.

They flew right over my house on their way down to Framingham, then back up again but presumable without the president since he flew out of BOS. I was surprised to see how low they were flying, or maybe they were flying that low so he could see all the flood damange.

This is bad news, as YHZ-BOS has been woefully overpriced these days. $600 for an hour's flight... I remember when it was on average $250 round trip. The savings versus taking the ferry are evaporating pretty quickly.

Wait, what? They canned the Cat?

I suppose it's not surprising given the difficulty of border crossings post 9/11, but... the Cat was a real viable alternative. Now you're really screwed if you don't fly. Driving to Halifax from Boston is a grueling 13 hour drive.

Yes the Cat is gone. Passenger numbers were way down last year and it probably has a lot to do with the new passport requirement (no last minute trips) and the CDN dollar is almost at par (99.17 today). This is the first year since 1956 when Canadian National Railways inaugurated the Yarmouth - Bar Harbor service that there hasn’t been a ferry to New England.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

DL has also cut BOS - YYG (Charlottetown) and the former NW DTW - YYG flight but JFK - YYG remains for this summer.
