Re: What's going on at RDU - 2018

As I think about it, how close is Terminal 2 to being at capacity? There are only 2 open gates and they are opposite ends of the Terminal... RDUAA says terminal expansion is not in their immediate plans but Terminal 1 is the only terminal with sufficient gate space and no one wants to really join W...

Re: What's going on at RDU - 2018

Delta is at about 31-32% market share at RDU, and that will likely increase with upgrading of AUS and BOS. AA is down to the upper 20s now.

Re: What's going on at RDU - 2018

Well, since it would only happen if AA cut the route, the answer would be yes. But AA has one thing DL wouldn't have at LHR, which is BA feed. So that doesn't really answer my question... The point is the O&D, premium pax and cargo you describe would shift to DL if they took it over from AA, so...

DL doesn't need feed in LHR, that is what CDG is for. A hypothetically RDU-LHR flight on DL would be for O&D traffic. Overcapacity is an issue. A 787 would be best on the route depending on its cargo capacity. RDU-LHR isn’t all local travelers, so feeding is important. Many people connect on to...
