Very interesting! I didn't expect this, but it does seem to follow along the lines of their recent MSY and BNA additions - 2nd tier U.S. cities that have strong tourism industries, booming culinary scenes, and are generally "trendy". I bet they'd be in PDX too if DL hadn't beaten them to i...Jump to post
The S80s seem to be completely confined to DFW in the January schedule. The three ORD flights (MSP, STL, RDU) are gone. They still show up in later schedules, but I'm guessing those aren't finalized yet and the S80s will probably stay put in DFW for the duration of their existence in the AA fleet.Jump to post
I think the business and leisure traffic to Italy should be more compare to Netherland. But I don't know why UA serves more flights to AMS rather than MXP and FCO Why do you think that? I'd venture to guess that UA knows what they're doing in these markets, having the demand and revenue data... UA ...Jump to post

IAD-MEX surprises me (and to some extent BOS-MEX), but the others don't. Plenty of competition in SJC-GDL and LAS-MTY, and PDX-MEX seemed a bit out of left field to me when it was announced.Jump to post
Would MXP work better? Milan is more of a business center than Rome, and the fashion industry is pretty big in both Milan and San Francisco. Not to steer this away from SFO, but I've always wondered if the fashion industry in Milan and entertainment industry in L.A. could support an AA LAX-MXP flig...Jump to post
Will the tech stops on ADD-ORD and ADD-IAD still be at DUB? I'd assume so since they're keeping as a destination.
Too bad LAX will no longer have carriers from all 6 inhabited continents, but it isn't a surprise this flight struggled once EI entered the LAX-DUB market.
2) By Summer 2019, all the 772s are expected to be completed but not all 77Ls. By my count, only 3 of the 10 77Ls will be completed by then with the rest completed during the W2019-20 schedule. 3) DL have removed the "old" 772 config from its timetable. The timetable now reflects 772 (rep...Jump to post
Fun (and crazy) fact: this will make MSN one of only 4 domestic markets UA serves from LAX between Texas and the Eastern Seaboard - the others are ORD, CLE, and MCO. Also BOS, BWI, EWR, and IAD. But still, very few midwest/eastern stations overall. I would consider all four of those to be "Eas...Jump to post

so, no one else is with me on JFK-BOM on the A350? We'll soon find out.

The most surprising of the UA adds to me is MSN-LAX. That is now 2 links to the west coast from UA there. MSN has been on a tear there lately with new service! It's great to see MSN getting a link to LAX (and I think that indicates MSN-SFO has been a success for UA). However, the surprise for me he...Jump to post
JFK on the 350. And how do you suggest that a 350 rotate with other 350s in the network? Through a JFK-DTW domestic turn? Unlikely. Most likely scenario is a 77L ATL-BOM flight that rotates perfectly with the rest of the fleet routes. And guess what, the current summer 2019 schedule has two extra 7...Jump to post
Very Texas-centric for the near future! Makes sense, and it's good to see that they'll be using the A220 on MSP/DTW-Texas flights since those are pretty heavily RJ for the moment. I expect LGA-BOS is in the mix largely for utilization purposes between the various LGA-Texas rotations. I suppose we'll...Jump to post

Delta gets a nice view of construction. haha Seriously, I imagine they will get T4 A concourse without having to spend much. They really just completed their terminal redo a few years ago.

Though SJC has seen a great deal of expansion in recent years, it is interesting to me that it isn't bigger.

Now seeing reports that UA has ordered 9 additional 789s for delivery starting in 2020. Not sure if these are converted or not. Almost certain they will come with Polaris. I've been reading that these are to begin to replace older planes, but no mention of what. Does anyone have an idea? Is this to...Jump to post
If they are dropping ATL-LIS for BOS-LIS, then they are loosing a lot of connections at ATL.

Assuming the timing of this flight allows connections to Florida and the Caribbean at MSP (and it sounds like that's likely the case), it seems like this route has a good chance of working.

with a noon departure, it will be too early in the day for most European arrivals to make that connection, especially what with having to clear customs. If they moved departure to 6PM, the flight would arrive at HNL around 9-10PM. Such an early departure will also provide challenges for East Coast ...Jump to post
This seems like a great add. Right now the only TATL service from LAS to a traditional European connecting hub is BA to LHR.

B6 would be very happy if DL block off a large gate for large part of the afternoon on a flight to leisure spot if that means the gate won't be used for high frequency domestic business routes. DL doesn't block off Terminal A gates for any extended period with the transatlantic widebodies. Those pl...Jump to post
If this comes to fruition, I'd expect it to be summer-only on a 752. Portugal is a hot market right now and DL seems to have seen a lot of success with their recent adds, so this wouldn't surprise me as a next logical addition. Also, I don't think the feed at BOS would be a problem. In addition to g...Jump to post
That brings EW to six U.S. routes from two German bases, if I'm not mistaken: DUS-RSW DUS-MIA DUS-EWR DUS-JFK MUC-LAS MUC-RSW I could see DUS-LAX being next on the radar. On a separate note, this removes EWR-DUS from the UA/LH transatlantic JV, no? I assume UA will still codeshare on the service, be...Jump to post
Delta never made a dime in JFK-TYO. And, judging by the capacity offered by JAL and ANA, they don't make much either. "Prestige" don't equal "Profits" in the airline business. I refuse to believe that no one makes money between two of the world's largest cities and largest metro...Jump to post
These JD Power awards are way too hard to follow. For example, this year, ORD was ranked the #1 best Connect”ed” hub in America...

My goodness. When will it end?
Hopefully they'll at least codeshare with AS so they can fill up their flights with tourists connecting from elsewhere in the U.S....
I honestly think the best chance for DL to return to HKG would be from JFK or LAX. Both are huge markets with a good premium component. The downside for each route is the level of competition - LAX-HKG has AA plus 3x daily CX and now HX as well, and JFK has 3x daily CX (not counting the one-stop via...Jump to post
The problem for DL on BOS-SEA is that it has the worst FC product on a route that does need some paid FC revenue.

I don't think DL will let up in this market ...Jump to post
Regarding the DL changes: 1) Are the adjustments in SNA potentially due to changes in allocated slots? It's not just DTW-SNA that is seeing a reduction, but also JFK-SNA and LAS-SNA. A total of 11 weekly frequencies cut. 2) I wonder if DL's seeing a decline in corporate traffic through PIA since Cat...Jump to post
When DL did an LAX build up in the late 2000s, they had a fair number of ER4s involved, flying to smaller cities in western Mexico, etc. That build up didn't last very long, though. The next time DL built up LAX they used 2-class RJs, and that one has stuck.Jump to post
Interesting that they will fly to TXL from JFK and not from EWR, where the rest of their NYC operation is... I'm guessing it'll be a super late departure since there aren't really any prime time afternoon/evening slots available at JFK these days.Jump to post
