US Airports That Never See Airbus Aircrafts?

Silly topic maybe but following the topic "CNN Marks Airbus 380 5 Year Anniversary" (http://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/general_aviation/read.main/5625245/) and one comment made on the CNN discussion board stating the following nonsense:

"Boeing outsold airbus in 2012 and still has a greater number of planes in the global fleet. Also no, ive been flying for years and ive never seen an airbus in a domestic us airport. The only airbuses I have seen in the United States fly in from Europe. Most Americans know better than to buy inferior frog made products." (by AmazingDX111)

I was wondering if there was any US airports that hardly/never ever see Airbus aircrafts, whether flying domestic or international?

I would think that DAL would be one unless it is for a charter or private flight. Just the one of the top of my head for busier airports. You could go with a lot of small airports to avoid Airbus as they are all on regional jets.

It is probably a shorter list to put those that do. Considering the thousands of airports in the country.

Many. Start with pretty much every smaller airport served largely or entirely with regional jets.

Post-mergers, there are very few airports left that do not see some degree of Airbus traffic (if they receive more than 5 =10 mainline flights per day).

ANC - currently only sees 1 Airbus (A319) per day PHX-ANC

MIA & DFW - receive a very low percentage of total movements, primarily since the largest airline (AA) does not operate Airbus aircraft (currently).

Does anyone know if Bremerton National Airport (PWT) has ever seen an Airbus? It has seen the 707, 727 and 737 as far as I know.

I don't think Jeffco/Rocky Mountain Airport (BJC) has seen an Airbus, but it has seen a 737-200. Anyone know??

That's off-season since I know of at least one more airline (B6) that flies Airbuses to ANC.

I'm not exactly sure what the point of the OP is because there seems there are several contradictions in it. Of the 300 or so US commercial airports, I'd guess that a good 60% don't see any regular Airbus aircraft but that's because they don't see anything approaching 100-seat aircraft of any type. Of the airports that do see regular aircraft of 100 seats or more, it depends on who the major carriers are that serve the airport. There are some airports, i.e., DTW, JFK, FLL, PHX, CLT, where it is a steady stream of Airbus aircraft mixed with other types. At PHL, you are more likely to see Airbus narrowbody equipment than Boeing narrowbody equipment.

The quote referenced in the OP is absurd.

Maybe the smaller airports, but certainly not HNL, since Hawaiian is an A330 operator.

My guess is there are very few places that are jet-capable that have never, ever seen any Airbus land there at all, but there are some places where it's really rare.

For now, it's very unusual to see any Airbus at BLI - thought that will change once Allegiant gets A319s in quantity. I'm guessing, however, that at some point at least one Airbus has landed there.

You are right in terms of the smaller airports. It didn't cross my mind to be honest! There is little point in this topic other than the fact that it is different and a little more fun than the usual topics!

How about MDW? Huge Southwest fortress must have little to no airbus's!

FWA has never seen a scheduled passenger Airbus of any kind, and almost all the pax charters from FWA are on 737s or DC-9s/MD-80s with the occasional EV lawn dart thrown in. However, FWA does see A32x during weather diversions from ORD, DTW, and others, and FedEx and UPS occasionally send in A300 freighters as opposed to the normal 757s during the holidays.

That may change, however, if G4 sends their A319s to FWA from SFB and other cities (or if F9 decides to start FWA).

This is an interesting question that has me thinking. BNA has to be an airport that doesn't get alot of Airbus traffic with the large WN presence...though DL would be realistically the only carrier who would operate the type in there.

I know F9 and the occasional DL flight into MDW are Airbus...but that has to be mainly a Boeing airport as well.

With AS being an all Boeing fleet, does anyone operate an Airbus up to ANC?

There are lots of other airports I can think of that see almost no Airbus. SGU, BGR, ELM, ITH, ISP, BGM, CHO, CWA, AGS, GSP, OAJ are a few that come immediately to mind.

Either that that person is lying. Even if flying from a small airport on a regional jet, that RJ has to land somewhere and almost 100% of the time that somewhere is a major airport with Airbuses.

In SEA we see just about all........except the 380......we did have the 340, for a while, too, up until SAS stopped flying to SEA.

Air Canada only uses the 319/320 seasonally SEA-YYZ....usually it is the E95.

Alaska has none in their fleet, and American has not flown an Airbus into SEA.

Notable international carrier that uses the A330 is Hainan into SEA. All the other foreign flag carriers into SEA use 747 or 777.

I don't know how much US flies mainline into ALB, but since B6 doesn't fly there, its the best bet in Upstate NY.

Edit: Looking on Flightaware, US flies mainline 734 in the last 24 hours, and not even Fedex/UPS flew Airbus in. Turns out one UA 319 threw my theory, which surprised me as UA doesn't fly any mainline into SYR.

Don't the Hawaiian A330 count? As an example: HA11 / N388HA is now inbound from SFO and will land around 45 minutes from now at HNL.

Jetskipper's statement is true. Notice he said Hawaii. As a whole, the State of Hawaii has very few Airbus flights. At the moment, only 7 out of the 25 airlines that service HNL use Airbus equipment for flights for a total of about 20 daily movements. HNL averages about 780 daily movements (all operations). HNL defines a movement as a takeoff and landing. LIH, OGG, KOA, and ITO all have flights going out of state, in addition to the interisland flights, and have zero flights using Airbus equipment.

Scheduled? Correct, no Airbus, however on the north side of the field, at Associated (or whatever it is officially called now), there are usually 2-3 ACJ models being outfitted for their future owners. The Oman Royal Flight A320 has been there during most of 2012, for example.
There are also Air Canada Jetz A320s in from time to time, though not as much this fall with the NHL still locked out.

Not quite true. It depends on which day you check the schedule. Just yesterday, they had three A319 departures on DL, one to MSP and two to DTW. Now this was the Monday after a Packers home game, but GRB does get Airbus aircraft on a regular basis, just not every day on the Winter schedule. Once the Summer schedule goes into effect in 2013, expect to see at least one A319 or A320 daily, usually on DL's 9:00 am to MSP, if they don't drop the MD-90 in there like last year.

CRP would be one, that does not have mainline service, except WN. Thus there are no Airbus flights here. Only during IAH weather issues has there been diversions. F9 brought one in a few years back, then post merger UA dropped on in as well. Took me back to my HP days seeing one up close again. I was the only one familiar with Airbus thus I had the pleasure (or not) of meeting it. Yep, got stuck helping everyone with their blown connections at IAH too. But having a 320 on the ground did get the attention of everyone else at the airport. But as for scheduled service, no CRP does not get any AB. Not even FX or UPS fly in here. How sad is that, for the 3 busiest port on the Gulf Coast?

Was this just recently? I worked for DL in DAB for about 4 years (2006-2010) and never did we see any of the airbus line. It was usually the lone MD88 and CR7 for the two RON aircraft and then mostly a helping of CRJs, and then we got upgraded during the spring time to all MD88s. The only exception to this came from Raceweek and random upgraded schedule with extra sections and 757s.

I don't think you have quite figured out the definition of "very little". It's okay, I understand.

283 flights total departing HNL today. Those 12 are the listed Airbus flights in all that fly into HNL according to flight stats.

He said "very little". Let's do the math. It's okay. I'm a tutor, I can help.

12/283 = .04 or 4%.

That means 96% of the flights departing HNL today are non-airbus.

The skipper said "very little". I would venture a guess and say that he would be correct.

This is UAs low season at ALB. Only one mainline flight to ORD on an A319. In the Summer/Fall, you'll see a A320 and an A319 daily.

ALB has always been a Boeing station for US, and I have always wondered why they have never flew an airbus equipment into ALB. However, due to the retirement of the B733, this will change. Starting next month, you'll see US fly a A320 and a A319 on ALB-CLT.

NW flew airbus equipment into ALB until the very end.

DL sometimes swaps an A320 in for an ATL flight, and come next spring, all ATL mainline flights will be A320s.

Currently they are pretty much a non Airbus airport since the British charters aren't very busy now - they are barely a Boeing airport either with the exception being Icelandair a couple days a week and Arkefly with their 767. I did about a week back search at SFB on Flightaware and those were pretty much it. Its a McDD Airport right now. I am not sure when we will see the first Allegiant A319 there. I live in Orlando and I haven't been by SFB in ages since spotting there is more difficult than most military bases. I thought I read Monarch got rid of their 330s and not sure if Thomas Cook still flies them there too. Thompson I think used to bring them there too. Another carrier that regularly had an A330 there was Ryan International.

Anything Airbus was unheard of at DAB while I attended ERAU also in mid 2000s. It was just Continental and Delta, which at that time didn't own any airbuses. It was basically COEx ERJs, Delta CRJs and MD-80s - with bigger planes during the race. United brought CRJs towards my end there, Delta would bring in 737-200s and 800s in 2006. I think one Airbus came in while I was there, it was a private charter for a couple racing teams - want to say Blue Moon Aviation with an A320

Chances are just about every airport that doesn't see an Airbus also doesn't see a Boeing but instead sees heaps of Canadian or Brazilian regional jets or Canadain or Swedish turboprops. There will be some exceptions but these will not be because of some desire to avoid foreign made aircraft!!!

I thought I read Monarch got rid of their 330s and not sure if Thomas Cook still flies them there too. Thompson I think used to bring them there too. Another carrier that regularly had an A330 there was Ryan International.

Nope Monarch haven't got rid of the A330's and they still have the two, but an A300 and A320 did leave the fleet for scrapping last month. Thomas Cook has three A330's, they did have six but in the last year or so two went to Air Transat and one for SriLankan.

Thomson has never ever had any A330's, they did operate a small Airbus fleet after merging with First Choice but now they are back to an all Boeing fleet (with exception to one A321). To SFB, Thomson have only ever used 763's.

So next summer you will probably see the Thomas Cook and Monarch A330's back at SFB for the summer.

DAB / KDAB Daytona Beach International Airport

DAB's RON flight is currently an A320, though it seems to rotate between A320s, 757s, MD-88s, or DC-9-50s depending on the time of year.

In terms of 757s for those asking, they've become fairly common during Spring Break over the last 2-3 years and around Christmas. DL's first two morning flights last March were 757s.

I don't think you have quite figured out the definition of "very little". It's okay, I understand.

JQ4 -332
HA10 -332
MU572 - 332
OZ231-333
PR101 - 343
DL579 - 332
DL277 -332
HA449 - 332
HA12 - 332
HA18 - 332
HA457 -332
HA8 - 332


283 flights total departing HNL today. Those 12 are the listed Airbus flights in all that fly into HNL according to flight stats.

He said "very little". Let's do the math. It's okay. I'm a tutor, I can help.

12/283 = .04 or 4%.

That means 96% of the flights departing HNL today are non-airbus.

The skipper said "very little". I would venture a guess and say that he would be correct.

My definition of very little is different then yours. I read very little as to mean less than 1% if you want to know, like it is any of your business, If you take out "Bomber" and CRJ flying and other private aircraft of the equation then you have more than 5% of the flights which I do not think fit into my definition of "very little". Very Little is a subjective term and will be different for everybody, so I think that we finish off our disagreement by saying that either way we look at it our opinions will differ and that we can both be satisfied with our own definitions of "very little". Now you can go back to your tutoring and I can go to my meeting.

I come to think of it, there are occasional plain, white fuselages that arrive/depart in the middle of the night (Fort Bliss? William Beaumont Army Medical? Customs and Border Protection? Anthony Federal Correctional?)

But I didn't see *anything*

I know the feeling. I witnessed a four-engined aircraft (all white) doing a low pass down the runway at 5T6 (Santa Teresa) one day, and was told to "shut up" about the incident   It was clear the flight originated in Mexico...but the gov't didn't want word to get out.

But the Luftwaffe also irregularly sends an A310 to ELP for shuttling personnel to/from HMN...

ELP gets fairly regular A300's/A310's from FX and 5X though...

"Airbii" is plural for Airbus. So when there are a group of two or more Airbus, instead of saying Airbuses we say Airbii lol. Like Fungus = Fungi etc. Its kinda made up, but we like to use it on here.

I flew out of MFE on November 19 with AA and parked right next to us was a UA A319 in the blue tulip livery it really made my day.

I never thought I would see that aircraft/livery combo in MFE.

That was great!! I would never imagine that MFE would ever see an A319 in the blue tulip!

ALB will now see a decent amount of airbus traffic on mainline. Both US and UA operate the A320 series into ALB. US is finalizing the retirement of the older 737 series aircraft. Once that is done, US will be all airbus in ALB for mainline (unless an E-Jet is tossed in here and there). My upcoming flight is on the A320 out of ALB on US.

The rotunda at the end of B concouse is left over from the ancient, Continental Airline's ELP as a focus city days...    Contintental built the rotunda back in the day   At one point, it even had Customs facilities to facilitate CO's flights to Mexico...

I don't think the rotunda at the end of B concourse has ever been used to its full potential since

Quoting tullamarine (Reply 75):
Chances are just about every airport that doesn't see an Airbus also doesn't see a Boeing but instead sees heaps of Canadian or Brazilian regional jets or Canadain or Swedish turboprops. There will be some exceptions but these will not be because of some desire to avoid foreign made aircraft!!!

. . . and the exceptions are mostly related to a single little carrier called Southwest. There are plenty of larger WN stations - MDW, BNA, STL, OAK, etc. whose Airbus service pattern is similarly limited: a few daily F9 flights, a few daily FX flights, and a UA, US or DL flight here or there. I bet we could come up with a dozen US airports that see 100 or more Boeing/Douglas movements and 10-20 daily Airbus movements. That would be a lot harder to do in South America or Europe, but remember that one of our three large legacies is, for the moment, all Boeing and both DL and UA have many Boeing and Douglas narrowbodies to complement their Airbus fleets.
