Re: Boston aviation - 2018

How often does the central garage get filled? I was there today and I had to park in the terminal E lot I took the last available spot. When walking from A to E I noticed cars double parked that happen often?

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

Southwest does reasonably well at MHT, but their overall numbers are falling, the worst case scenario for Manchester would be a large reduction in WN service as a result of falling pax numbers. Cutting down to 3x / day to BWI or cutting Florida flights would be near apocalyptic for MHT. I didn't se...

Re: Best B-52 spotting locations in the US.

By far the best places to see the B-52 would be Barksdale AFB in Louisiana and Minot AFB in North Dakota, the only two bases where they're stationed. For the B-1, Dyess AFB in Texas and Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota are the places to go. And, Whiteman AFB in Missouri is your go-to for the B-2. I un...

Best B-52 spotting locations in the US.

I’ve seen the B-52 on display at museums and airshows but never in flight. Is there a particular base in the US that is a reliable place to view one? How about the B-1 and B-2 as well? Thanks for any info.

I’m sure although those short RJ flights to EWR are so brutal for delays when EWR has weather.

The late afternoon flight is probably delayed 50% of the time sometimes a couple of hours.

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

Southwest then has less competition and jacks up prices (no longer a low-cost airline, at least definitely not out of MHT), which only drives more leakage to BOS. It is a troubling trend here at MHT, and even the most pessimistic among us felt things would turn around long ago. But as far as Southw...

For MHT to say a positive. I would think a shift to IAD is a win for most flyers. EWR is much worse on delays in winter and all year really. IAD is the better place to connect for most people more of the time. Does the fact that the CRJ700 has a first class cabin help with the yields verse the EWR ...
