So I guess the reason why Air China will leave at 1:30 pm is to compete with United flight to Tokyo? Be nice to see it leave at the evening. Going to be a nice line up at evening time at Terminal D with British Airways, Aero Mexico, Emirates, Qatar Airways, Viva Aerobus, Turkish Airline, and now Air China arriving in the evening.

I bet SQ are glad that they got in when they did to establish themselves...

Internationally, IAH will now have (aside from UA)
Viva Aerobus
Singapore
British Airways
Lufthansa
Qatar
Emirates
Turkish
Avianca (TA)
KLM
Air France
Aero Mexico
Air China
SonAir
Air Canada

Thats quite an impressive lineup. Only thing missing are some more S. American tails....LATAM maybe. Would be nice to see NZ and BW! And a return of KX



When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

I remember when LAN Cargo would come in, those were the days... On another note, I'm surprised Avianca hasn't done anything in IAH. Maybe with UA dropping AUA, maybe Aruba Airlines may start service since they applied for USA routes not too long ago. Since MAR rumors have been floating around, maybe Conviasa may start service there, if not UA?

Yep, a decent lineup, I wonder if I'll live long enough to see 20 carriers here? Now if the following were still around, IAH would really have a sweet line up. As for additional carriers from Latin America, as long as UA is around, I doubt that few carriers from down south would want to take on Smisek's monster.

ALIA (Royal Jordanian)(70s/80s)
South African (80s)
Gulf Air(90s)
Pakistan
China Airlines
Viasa(70s/90s)
Caymen
Air Jamaica
*Aviteca
*SHASA
*TACA
*Above 3 merged into TACA Group
Canadian (AC takeover)
Aviasca

Heading west on 1960 from Humble, if you look right before the fence, you can see from the UA hangars all the way to the beginning of Terminal B. I've seen that view many times drving to The Woodlands for swim meets.

Most airlines (Non-UA/CO) who began HOU-LGA eventually ended the flights. This was tried by AA, a couple times, and smaller carrier...believe sun country for time.

AA flew HOU-LGA for quite a long time; the flights were routed as AUS-HOU-LGA to provide a one-stop from AUS which is over 1500 miles from LGA. ATA (not Sun Country) flew HOU-LGA when they were code-sharing with WN.

Quoting thomasphoto60 (Reply 261):
Well I can't say for C but for B, the 2 north side pods were the int'l gates from the late 60s until the early 90s when D (IAB as it was called then) was opened. From what I know of terminal C's int'l gates, they were completed in the mid-80s and located on the south side of the terminal.

The international gates in Terminal C were C1-C3, which are now D1-D3. When Terminal IAB (renamed to Terminal D before Terminal E opened) was built, C1-C3 were attached to Terminal IAB and renumbered to IAB1-IAB3. That's why the walk from D4/D5 to D3 is so long; D3 is in the original Terminal C structure.

I guess your right but, I just don't want HOU take IAH opportunities away. Or UA to cut down even more from IAH.With Frontier, Spirit, and, Viva Aerobus customer then will option to have a cheap ticket out of IAH or HOU so sets competition for Southwest and Hobby.

As long as the competition is there, does it matter whether the service is at IAH or HOU? If you want competition for WN, it will be more direct if it's from HOU.

Disagree. IAH-AMS will ultimately be going 763 and as I said before if the the 763s on IAH-LHR are going to be 3-class it technically is a LOSS of 3 seats vs. the 2 daily 772s. Any way you slice it other carriers smell the blood in the water at IAH. Do you really think it is a coincidence that since the HOU debacle that we have seen WN expand at HOU, NK sprout up like a weed, and now AA going into IAH-JFK?

Well - UA started IAH-YUL with the E70s...and AC/UA have JV transborder so there really is no need for both carriers on those routes. The routes that warrant the capacity of both airlines has them...namely YYZ and YYC. YYZ/YUL carrier a lot of price conscious transfers to Europe.

Incidentally, I too thought IAH-LHR was switching to 2-class 763s with the addition of the third flight March 30. But was there ever a valid basis for this belief? I went back and looked at UA's press release and it's quite ambiguous -- it just says 763s with "flat bed seating" and Economy Plus, In other words, it left it open as to whether the aircraft would be 2-class or 3-class.

Competing effectively means better yield management and competition to BAs product offering. Its a nice boost in premium seats but overall capacity is down by 3. Schedules that far out are not accurate...a 777 on the sked right now may be a dummy...may be. Not being a pessimist just pointing some things out. I actually think that the HOU situation has been a boon for the market. Look at all of the non UA additions!

Yeah, but I think the 772 is not a dummy. I think the reason for the non UA additions is because, they are getting the merger sorted out, and they have other hubs to tend to. UA will add routes out of IAH in the future, since IAH is their most profitable hub. and the new routes that UA announced out of other hubs are mostly routes that are served already by IAH.

It was Continental's practice to reallocate the Christmas idled Europe heavies to LatAm routes. SJO/GUA/CCS/MEX/GDL would see the 777/764/762 fleet.

That route needs a bigger plane. US-CCS capacity is in definite need of larger planes and more frequency. IAH-CCS could easily use a 753 daily.

I dont know about UA, I do know that AA has asked the Venezuelan government for extra frequencies for MIA/DFW/JFK-CCS and has been denied over and over. I would imagine UA has probably made similar requests.

That doesn't make since. The 767 is flown on a myriad of routes, from all of the hubs. The only plane it makes since to consolidate at one hub (SFO) is the 747 since it is the smallest portion of aircraft in UAs fleet and is mostly used on TPAC routes, except SFO-FRA.

It was a diverted flight to DFW from Brasil where a young woman died in-flight. They landed at IAH to handle that then went on to DFW. There is a thread on it somewhere here.

They are doing great at IAH btw, during Irrops AA always tries to but pax onto BA flights but they are consistently full. They could well support another 772 flights during the high season, but perhaps they don't want to touch their yields.

I have no doubt that BA could fill another 772 any day to LHR. Like I've said... I've seen the loads and they are great. I would hazard a guess that they do not want to reduce yields and they do have a formidable competitor (albeit not focused on the premium side of air travel) already increasing seat capacity down the back.

I have a very strong hunch (and so do BA employees I talk to) that IAH will be an A380 station for BA. They are showcasing their new product on the 77W which operates the BA194/5 (perhaps to further differentiate them as the superior carrier). It would be a reasonable increase in capacity (not frequency) if BA were to replace the 744 which operates the later BA196/7 with an A380.

This would increase seats (they can always use more seats  ) without increasing any overhead costs, give its best offerings in all cabins on a route where UA have a connecting hub thereby differentiating them with a substantially better product in all classes (they are already better IMHO than UA), and maintain yields.

If there was a lottery on airline routes, I'd be first to take bets on an A380 from BA at IAH within the next two years.

So the "A380 Service to IAH" chart looks to be:
LH- already happening
EK- will happen pending delivery of higher gross weight airframes
BA- a strong possibility
AF- I can see it happening in 2-3 years. Their current 77W is the 2nd highest step in terms of F and J seats, with the A380 being the first. And with UA out of the picture of IAH-CDG, that just adds to the possibility.
QR- I'd say this is the slimmest chance out of current carriers to IAH to operate the A380 here.
SQ- Slightly higher chance than QR.

Not bad for an airport which, no more than 5 years ago, wasn't even expected to see any A380 service. Let alone 6 possibilities!

Your statement is slightly wrong. SQ is ending the SIN-LAX-SIN nonstop along with SIN-EWR-SIN nonstop. Only EWR will lose service while LAX goes LAX-NRT-SIN with A380 service. IAH will see daily service restored for S13 schedule.

Mine:
LH- already happening
EK- Up in the air for me (I'd actually think, contrary to my original beleif, that EK might but the A380 at DFW (to feed its AA connections) and leave IAH as it is, a high yielding market. This might be smart especially with TK coming into play soon)
BA- very strong possibility (if they do not, I would expect a third rotation to LHR with them having triple daily 4-class 772 service)
AF- No. (They have decent yields from what I gather but the 77W is often replaced with a 772 when the loads are very low. I think UA has been successful in transferring pax to its EWR hub for flights to CDG)
QR- Not at this stage
SQ- Never.

My list of probability after LH:
1.BA
2.EK
3.QR
4.AF
5.SQ

EK has stated that they want to fly the A380 to IAH, and put a 10,000 sqft club in D. I think they are more committed in Houston than DFW.

But how long ago was that? A year or two. I think that DFW has been a huge success for them and perhaps they would have changed their minds on which airport merits it the most.

We still haven't seen the re-introduction of EK's double daily service to DXB from IAH. A lot of people seemed to think that the reduction was a temporary one-season halt and the early morning flight to DXB. It hasn't yet returned.

No but we saw them nearly immediately switch it to a 77W. DFW is still a 77L.

I can see, if it goes back to, the double daily being an A380 on EKs morning slot, and a 77L on their current slot so they won't interfere with LH's A380 slot. Does EK still have their morning slot, anyways?

In regards to the A380...I would really only put my money on EK as the other additional bus. I would think BA would probably rather keep frequency over gauge; however, I think it all depends on how the overall loads will be affected by UA going 3x daily - eventhough it is a net loss in capacity of about 3 seats but a gain in premium capacity.

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing HAS start to update Terminal D this year, especially with all of the new prospects like Turkish and an Asian carrier. I'm curious to know how a renovation would happen at D with the LH A380 (and possible other A380). I guess build the pier at D4-5 first and toss an A-380 capable gate on the end of that pier, and then move on to building a second pier at D11-12?

Maybe I'm wrong here, but the last press release I read concerning the Terminal D expansion called mainly for interior modifications. The big thing is to build another floor onto the current roof and put the airline clubs up there with more space. EK wants to build a nice club, and LH and KL would both like to expand theirs. Taking the clubs off of the main departure level would then make room for more duty free shopping. Compared to many international terminals across the globe, IAH has very little retail, and I think that is a problem HAS would like to fix. Other than adding another A380 capable gate, I don't think there are plans in the works to actually expand the number of gates at Terminal D. Yes, it is crowded in the 13:00 to 16:00 time frame, but otherwise, many gates are empty.

Also, to answer IAH59's question, the UA flight to FRA departs around 6:30pm, 2 hours after the LH flight leaves.

Even as the resident DFW fan boy and the most ardent DFW supporter on this site, I will say with a straight face that IAH is more important to EK than DFW. That isnt to say DFW hasnt been a success for EK because it very much has, but IAH has the premium rich oil traffic that DFW doesnt. EK's DFW flight has a great deal of India traffic (which is higher yielding than India traffic from most US cities), but its not at the premium that oil traffic is.

The only way I see a role reversal of the Texas cities is if AA and EK have a tie up. Only then would I say that DFW would be as important to EK as IAH.

I can assure you AA and EK, although not having a formal codesharing relationship, have an expansive interline agreement. I work at IAH for AA and I have, on average 7-10 EK connections or people coming from EK whose final destination is DFW. That is on 3 of the later DFW flights and from one base.

You're argument is very valid however, I was just thinking that EK could keep their premium capacity with their daily 77W to IAH and focus on actually moving Y pax by using the A380 into DFW to feed connections.

A tad unrelated to pax side, but since EK has gone to the 77W from the 772, They've rarely been able to carry more than 5 Tonnes of cargo per flight. I wouldn't be surprised is we start getting a scheduled EK Skycargo flight, since EK is trucking tons of cargo up to Dallas almost daily.

The problem with adding another A380 capable gate at the D4-5 area right now is one of space during the afternoon bank. Currently, SQ is essentially stationed at D4, KL at D5 with overlapping ground times. If either of those gates were to be an alternate A-380 gate for EK, it could cause problems with the current schedules if one or the other were delayed.

Also, D-2 would not be able to be used for an alternate widebody gate in this scenario because of wing space. I've had SQ on D-2 before with EK on D-4, and UA on C-14/15 and it was an uncomfortably tight squeeze on the pushback..

Instead, if EK does end up bringing an A-380 here, they would most likely have to change thier arr/departure schedule.. nothing major, just an hour or two later at most would be easiest.

There was at one time gates D4 and D4A. I don't remember which gate became the current D4 but the infrastructure for the other gate is still there, granted its just a straight away part for a jetway, but I imagine all you would have to do is just add on the cab part of the jet way and a swivel point and that's it. Nothing too major required.

well even if SQ or Turkish were to use the E-gates, it would be somewhat of a logistical nightmare for both the airline and it's handlers.. I honestly have no clue how they'd be able to accommodate all of the T-D Carriers AND expect to build a pier at D4-D5 area.

If they want to keep airline schedules the same during construction, hardstand locations out beyond D9-12 could be utilized.. what a nightmare there.

The other option is to shuffle airline schedules around; and I'm not sure how willing these big boys are to moving their flight schedules around.

Currently there are 5 widebody gates(D2, D4, D5, D7, and D9), and then there's D-11/12(I'm not completely sure if D-11/12 area can still accommodate two widebodies since they built that second jetbridge on D12).

Allow Terminal F to be all international.

Amen! 

With all the expansion IAH is seeing, or projected to see, I'm surprised they haven't started working on the "East Terminal" that the master plan calls for. Does anyone have any info on it?

I mean it really does make sense start building a Terminal F that will be a state of the art international terminal then give Terminal D to United. I don't think though HAS has that money yet :/

They should do that, after a new terminal is built, of course. D can be a new RJ-land, I'm more than positive they can put more jetways in D for RJ's, or even a satellite where the hardstands are now. UA having D, coupled with the phase 2 of terminal B, that would be one helluva long concourse, with at least 4 piers to boot! UA would have a ton of real estate!

Now, the only kicker to the whole plan is where would they build that new terminal? HAS won't build it between the 8/26's because they have stated they want to ad a 8/26C runway, which will be needed. I guess UA can relocate hangers and other facilities somewhere at the airport and they can build a new terminal there.

They were suppose to move the hangars to the outside and build Terminal F along side with E.

I actually saw this as I saw making the walk from the interterminal train to go to Gordon's Galley before it closed   . They were filming at a UA customer Service desk and infront of the UA club in terminal E.

And people say UA is punishing IAH, why would they punish the poster child.  

On a serious note, I've noticed almost every UA ad is taken in IAH, and others in ORD. Makes me feel good my home airport is being shown around the world!
