Re: AA to begin DFW/CLT to SBN and ECP. ORD-LGA Shuttle

As far as the "shuttle" service goes - it had been rumored for awhile anyway when people were speculating how "Shuttle" service is done after DL's end their West Coast "Shuttles" (That doesn't even have hourly frequency outside of LAX-SFO). And as someone else already ...

Also, point to point alleviates the congestion at large airports by skipping them altogether. If enough passengers go from A to C you can fly them non-stop instead of connecting, effectively stemming the need for more flights from A to B and from B to C.

Re: OAG Changes 11/26/2017: AA Adds CLT-BGR, DFW-OAK, ORD-CHS, PHX-AMA/OKC

I know this has been brought up recently in a few threads but it appears AA is cutting more at ORD, in contrast to adding/expanding as stated by Parker as an objective of the "new" AA, to reclaim Chicago market share. It looks like AA basically had their summer schedule published and this...

I’m surprised YEG doesn’t have a SFO link with either of the Star carriers. I would think it would be able to support at least one E-175 per day. (You said mid-continent, didn’t specify which country)

Re: Chicago Aviation News

Serious question about deicing at ORD. Will they ever change from the "deicing at the gate" to the far more productive deicing pad? Just seems insane to me that one of the busiest airports in the world can't manage this... There currently isn't enough pad space to do it, not even close ac...

LH can happily fly one of their many other widebodies. There is no case for an A380 gate unless the usage fees the city receives vs the alternative large widebody are greater than the cost of construction plus the value of the incremental source required, and the incremental interest on any borrowin...

Re: Small Load Factor

Southwest's Cuba services have had some embarrassingly low load factors. FLL-VRA for example is at 26% for the period in T100 and was 15.7% in February. That's on 2 daily departures.
