There is enough feed and O and D at JFK for AA BA to make it work.
AA is realigning hubs at this point.
Dont expect EDI to be solid either. I believe it was previously tried in PHL and moved to JFK
Not sure. They were 1 of 2 flights to MAN when they stopped.
Surely it worked, right? Yet it didnt
It is an ugly
Involves using a Megaphone to
do PA announcements to pax
Most airlines try to fix that prior to departure
I would think their business plan assumes AZ goes away. That may be a wild card, but if that happens, they become the defacto flag airline of Italy...hence the name change. I would imagine they are trying to build the operation and hold down the fort to wait AZ out. I also imagine they are hoping th...Jump to post
JFK will look very different in a decade than it does now.
The airport is going to be built into a more unified, cohesive terminal system.
Delta JetBlue and AA/BA did submit plans to see who goes first.
There seems to be a bit of dispute over the T7 site
Let’s say 10x LAX 4x SFO 5x MIA 5x CLT 4x DCA Let’s say they bump up DFW and ORD just to keep their hands on some slots: 4x ORD 4x DFW Let’s say they bump up PHL with 4 rjs just to keep a few more 4x PHL And let’s keep a token 1 daily to partner hubs 1x LHR 1x BCN And CDG like they did in BOS for a...Jump to post
Some of you boys better eat some crow! I called JFK DFW 4 daily on AA last week. I see AAs game at JFK. Sadly, many of you dont As for WN at LGB...B6 doesnt fly to DEN from LGB.

9w748capt wrote:4x ORD-JFK and DFW-JFK? Which market would that be catering to exactly? With nearby PHL doing well I doubt AA needs to just slot squat at JFK. They're not going to fly routes like that just to burn money.

Geez, what's with everyone stealing regional jets these days? I mean, if you're going to do something as idiotic as steal a commercial plane at least go all in and grab something cool like an A380 or 787. . Would one person be able to take off and fly an A380 ? Sure...why not? If a plane is not par...Jump to post
I am sitting here in the A concourse in SDQ looking at 5 gates of fun and thinking... For an av buff, is there anything cooler than a 1970s style round head house (concourse ending in a circle)? Realistically, they are totally impractical in today’s world...but that is what makes them so special! EW...Jump to post
Dont worry silver line fans...we heard the same BS about Airtrain JFK when it was going up. Meanwhile, it is one of the busiest, if not busiest airport rail link in the country, operates 24/7 and JFK has gone from 30 mil to 60 mil pax a year since it opened while LGA has been pretty stagnant. It wil...Jump to post
AA in DC runs into the same problem that US used to have at LGA...they dont have the long haul/international operation at IAD to go hand and hand with the restricted, close in airport. United in DC has the opposite problem. Or maybe it isnt a problem at all...maybe they both print money doing what t...Jump to post
Why are you even trying with a post like that? Haha
But thank you!
Especially during a slow month like October. October is not a slow month, after Summer and March it's the next biggest. If B6 doesn't have missions for their planes in October then God help em because they should be killing it in October. Dont know what airline industry you work for, but it is diff...Jump to post

AA at JFK is toast.
All those west coast additions last year are now gone.
Den was never made for intl connections...it was a redeeye.
Perhaps most eye popping in this thread is B6 JFK BOS down to 3 daily.
Hub to hub? Lowest freq I have ever seen on the route.
I believe we will see the 380 for BA at JFK down the road. You guys are assuming zero growth at two slotted airports over the next decade. Frequency is king. But replacing 10 flights with smaller equipment is a net loss. All while DL and Virgin are a solid #2 and Norwegian keeps adding LGW frequenci...Jump to post
Right around that time JFK and LGA were unslotted briefly. JFK was also pretty quiet outside of the pm rush hour. Then 9/11 happened. They shut TWAs JFK operation in one day. It never resumed. Slots just werent a priority then. In subsequent years, AA wasted a billion dollars on the PAAlace T8...Whe...Jump to post
In fairness, the TSA and ATC Edcts becoming the norm on a daily basis and NYC ballooning traffic killed the shuttle. 1.5 new million people in NYC since 1980 without any meaningful infastructure investment will do that. Try to imagine quick TSA in early am in BOS or DCA, 35 min flight, landing at LG...Jump to post
It is being discussed in a thread about AA consolidating in CTB, giving DL the gates they need to consolidate. B6 doesn't get MAT to themselves, NK and F9 are moving too, and more gates doesn't equal more slots. That is incorrect information. Delta will take a net loss on gates. NK and F9 move into...Jump to post
Big hit if you look at OAG thread Interesting note MCO and JFK will have same frequency going forward. This gels with PR migration over last 20 years. Puerto Ricans do not come to NYC as much anymore...they go to Orlando. I fully expect the exodus to have a larger impact on Florida, and B6 seems to ...Jump to post
There is some news on this today.
Look for a press release shortly.
Big shuffle occurring in LGA next month

No room in BOS JFK or FLL. Unless they take those 15 airbuses per year and put them in MCI PIT BNA STL etc, they really have no place to go. Out of their current hubs, I guess they could grow IAD. EWR SFO LAX all have room for a little growth DEN and IAH have the most room ORD Will have more room in...Jump to post
There seems to be a pissing contest between 2 posters above with accusations of fake news. Just a fact check: Over the last year, B6 has been at or near the bottom for on time arrivals. That is not fake news. You just have to google DOT on time stats and read the report. There are a lot of reasons f...Jump to post
This is a great merger and will happen in next few years: 1. Trump admin will allow it 2. UA gets back to JFK and while they will be bigger at EWR, they will start flying international from both airports plus the trans cons and Airbuses 3. They will quickly win support from New York's congressional ...Jump to post
B6 and AS to MAT.
Delta to C/D
AA to Central Terminal
Mid November. I heard 11/12.
It has been in the works for a year.
As a NYer witnessing post 9/11 life, there will be no drop in demand. I'd go as far to say there will be an increase in demand to the Mandalay Bay. I watched ground zero IMMEDIATELY become a tourist attraction. The Subway white boards in Times Square used to list in magic marker: -Macys 34/herald -C...Jump to post
Gate use becomes more efficient. No need to keep more gates than necessary for a flight schedule especially at airports where gates are readily available.
I believe AS and VX moved to T7 at JFK for a combined operation yesterday
Little more complicated.
This is a national airline when there arent supposed to be national airlines.
For Italy, in a convoluted way, Alitalia folding would be like LH folding to Germany or BA folding to Britain.
My bet, another bail out and AZ lives to see another day

For the 5th largest airline in the US, which previously had not specified when this would happen, that's soon.
PBI has one important market: NYC. Specifically, NYC Jewish population and NYC monied population WN doesnt touch that except for 2 daily to ISP.

B6 is cutting schedules to SXM STT and SJU through the winter.
I suspect the first of many airlines to do that
B6 is a prime takeover target with nowhere to expand paying substandard wages compared to competitors. This is a wise move for the rank and file. Really nowhere to expand? FLL and BOS are expanding well. As for the FAs it's really 50/50 personally I think they can hold off a union but if they used ...Jump to post
not sure about that. AS with its current offering can't really challenge UA for premium flyers in bay area. It challenges WN as the Californian local carrier of choice. And with AS program downgrading since AA/DL/AM are no longer partners airlines and KE/AF/KL likely leaving also, I just don't see ...Jump to post
NW would have kept NRT intact as a standalone. They had nothing else. You have to understand, mergers made hubs redundant. We see it in the US all the time. No doubt STL was "marginal" for TW compared to UA at ORD, but it was all they had and it wasn't going anywhere. No one on here can se...Jump to post
Delta is pretty small at MCO compared to the good old days :) That whole Airside was theirs sans a few international operators. Plus the Comair operation.
