These will be configured with 70 seats similar to the E175SC to avoid scope limitations On Delta's seat map of this aircraft it looks like there is one row missing in the back of the cabin, like an empty space between the last row and the aft windscreen. Is it really like that? On the CRJ900, the a...Jump to post
Ground stops in both ORD and EWR. I'm told both airports are having gate availability issues (at least for UA) so lots of airborne flights are diverting.Jump to post
Thanks for preparing this. It highlights UA's disappointing reliance on 50-seat RJs. I'd like to fly UA but won't spend half my paid F journey in a CRJ when DL and AA can get me to a place like CHA without downgrading en route. UA isn’t going to put a 73G or 319 on a route that doesn’t have the dem...Jump to post
With WN having the rest of their west coast focus cities at or near capacity, SMF is really benefiting by having a surplus of gates for WN to use. They are creeping up to 100 daily departures...currently at 87 but will probably hit 90 with HOU and Hawaii. BNA seems like a likely add, MCI has been se...Jump to post
Looks like Southwest added Houston-Hobby starting Nov 4 and are increasing MSY service to daily Yes, HOU will be Sundays only (for now), but I'm sure will be added once more aircraft come available and demand proves itself. MSY will be suspended from mid-August until November when it will be moved ...Jump to post
I had no idea UA operated AUS-CUN. Seems like a strange route for them. CUN has a lot of seasonal service by the Big 3 that isn’t from a hub. UA also serves MSY and SAT to CUN. AA and especially DL are much more active in this area though. And WN has expanded dramatically in this area as well the p...Jump to post
I know UA is happy with how they are doing and are expanding IAH, they seemed to take the slow growth approach and it has helped. WN has said TPA is doing decent and their FLL loads are higher than NK and B6, so that’s a pretty good sign although LF isn’t always a good read. Would be interesting I s...Jump to post
Last I've heard WN will take A1-A7 AS gates A8 and Share Gate A9 with Hawaiian eventually something next year. American B1 ,UNITED B2 & B3, JetBlue Gates B4 and B5. Flyguy UA and DL have to stay together as they're both ground handled by the same agent. I don't think a 321neo can get out of BUR...Jump to post
Is there no summary for this extension? It seems like with the new Res system making it easier to create less than daily frequencies, it might be harder to break down the changes like before. WN is continuing to put the pressure on AS in the CA markets. SFO-SNA has been interesting as VX tried it an...Jump to post

Leaving SMF at 0625 left it relying on a ton of O&D from SMF which didn’t seem to make any sense.
What are they using the extra aircraft time for?
The only other such UA Express bus operation is between Galveston (BPT) and IAH. The ABE-EWR shuttle bus was previously a CO flight before it was converted to bus service due to ATC delays at EWR. BPT is Beaumont, not Galveston. I take I-10 to and from work and I would occasionally see it driving d...Jump to post
F9 uses mainly vendors so they can't really control the morale of those workers. Also, flying less than daily to stations will create a situation where you are more likely to delay a flight instead of cancel it so planes are having to play catch up constantly. Also, having only 1 hub doesn't allow m...Jump to post
So, I should be able to get away with carrying it to the gate then valet-tag there and scoop it at my destination? I'm just doing a short leg from LGA to Dulles. Really just depends. Policy is if it doesn't fit in the bin, it has to be checked to final destination (whether at the counter or the gat...Jump to post
Last time, UA would match F9's fares at least on a limited basis. This time, UA seems to be ignoring F9 completely. I've noticed that too. $100 fares on F9 vs $400 fares on UA for FAT. The difference for SBA is even wider. UA seems pretty confident they can charge 4-5x more in these markets. Some o...Jump to post
United has been doing more or more opportunistic flying using the Domestic 777s. They used them out of Minneapolis for the Superbowl as extra frequencies. People have already mentioned EDC and the NHL Playoffs but the Billboard Awards were also in Las Vegas last night. Todays schedule shows 10 Narr...Jump to post
QX was also handling the ramp operation of the UAX flight in MMH with UGE doing the customer service work, which always seemed a little odd to me. Guess we’ll see if this will affect that route or not.Jump to post
Is SAT within the limits of DCA and LGA? If so I see WN adding both with the additional slots picked up from AS. I believe DCA and LGA both give WN an additional RON at each airport.

We all know EWR isn't in NY, but they seem to be doing just fine. Transitioning to a mainly mainline operation, will be great for the NY business traveler and will be a great selling point to them. Transitioning the connections to IAD will alleviate the ATC delays EWR is notorious for and will reduc...Jump to post

With or without their alliance partners?
When combined with their partners I would make it UA, AA, and then DL.
WN has no reason to hurry into LAX. They serve most of the LAX connections through the 4 announced gateways. Yes they will miss out on the LA passenger, but there is so much competition, it might be better to see the others continue to battle it out and maybe someone will blink first and cut back so...Jump to post
Interesting that they added 15 more options for E175, when their original order was for 40 + 90 options and have only exercised 14 of those 90. I believe those are all guaranteed to go to Envoy. Been a while since I have been on a CRJ-900, but I don't remember the inside feeling as spacious as an E-...Jump to post
F9 has loaded SBA-DEN starting 8/21 on an A320. Tues/Thur/Sun. Exactly what was anticipated. The timings are awful. Unless F9 has a whole bunch of midnight departures from DEN to the east, I doubt this service will be successful. Reminds me of the schedule that F9 used to start service to IWA, no c...Jump to post
F9. It was one of the few cities cut in CA that wasn’t brought back with the last batch. With respect to California, F9 still has yet to resume BFL, LGB, OAK and SMF. I’d say a return to SMF is a no brainer, and OAK could potentially support all kinds of routes beyond just DEN as well. Typically I’...Jump to post

One thing I noticed on a lot of the upgauges they did is that they didn't always consolidate the schedule frequency and instead would replace an RJ with mainline but would still have another RJ an hour apart, which the market couldn't absorb.

Can the max7 or another 737 model operate interisland? I thought we have had discussions about engine overheating on short hops.

Probably has to do with F9's recent expansion, which I still have doubts about but we'll see. They seem to be trying every market they can. AA has yet to add PHX and same with UA with SFO.
