IST has come down because of terrorist attacks and Turkey's internal issues. It was above FRA till 2015.
The growth rate for European Airports is quite low.
Short red eye flights are bad. I think red eye eastbound flights with arrival times before 7am local are terrible. . There are flights from various Alaska destinations into SEA on AS......a dark "sleepy" kind of flight, with not enough time to sleep......then a few here and there end up p...Jump to post
While reading the thread about CRJ/ERJ redeyes, it lead me to the question: What are the most poorly timed commerical flights in the system? (e.g. 0200 departure, 0415 arrival or something like that.
I thought I'd be interesting to see what people can find.
Same storm hammered PSC last night. Nothing has gotten out on time this morning, but no cancellations yet.Jump to post
Awesome SEA announcements. IAH stands out to me.Jump to post

I wouldn't be surprised to see Allegiant to SFB or DL to DTW. Allegiant seems more likely to me.Jump to post
I love it. The GEG - SAN route will be a success. Not just Spokane, but people in the Tri - Cities, Pullman, Wenatchee & Yakima will use this service. Wenatchee and Yakima are both closer to SEA than GEG if somebody is going to drive. If only Southwest would move their operations to Pasco / Tri...Jump to post
SAN to GEG is a good add. I can see this becoming very successful. Plenty of people I know fly PSC-SEA/PDX-SAN, and WN starting from GEG will make travelling to SoCal much easier for us. Why in the world would somebody drive 140 miles from Tri Cities to GEG to catch a WN flight to SAN? The drive ti...Jump to post
The haters will always hate, and they are as usual on this thread. HA wins, and tough shit for everyone else Pretty obvious that anyone poo-poo'ing this achievement has zero experience in airline operations, or has tried and probably failed (I know of at least one up there that has miserably. Can't...Jump to post
What is AA's longest 738 route?Jump to post
- 7x daily to PDX- Wow!! That's a TON of daily passengers between those two cities when you factor in the 27x daily flights on AS/QX that day. 2,700 daily passengers each way, give or take.
- 7x daily to MSP- This is also impressive. I wonder why this is such a busy route compared to say, DTW-SEA?
The Seoul-Jeju route has a ton of flights. KE does multiple on A330's/747's while Asiana does a bunch on 767's/A330's/747's. Not to mention a whole slew of narrowbodiesJump to post
Many, if not everything on that list varies entirely airline-to-airline. Lots of variables go into some; such as no free booze or no food at all because the flight is too short to serve, the cockpit tour varies because if there is a short aircraft turnaround they may not have time, but it's worth a ...Jump to post
Delta downsizes their regional SEA base. Based on multiple previous threads, it looks like they are stuggling on the regional PNW routes such as SEA-PSC/BIL/BZN/MSO. Also, they almost completely pull out of the Alaska market cutting SIT, KTN, JNU, and FAI. I think ANC will stay.Jump to post
Because other airlines have that covered. You could ask the same about just about any other country and the same answer would be, as long as Fedex and Cargolux and UPS etc exist, there really isn't a need for another carrier. Fedex has hubs in CAN, NRT, ANC, MEM. TNT/UPS/DHL operate out of CVG, SDF,...Jump to post
Never thought of this. It makes perfect sense, however.Jump to post
Does anyone know what they will do with one plane? Airlines like KLM and Swiss are daily into Dar Es Salaam if I understand correctly. One plane can't do everything in the article. Could there be more on the way? I could see them giving CDG, FRA, AMS, or LHR/LGW a shot at first. If that works, mayb...Jump to post

Good to see! Hoping this goes through.
Obviously unrealistic, but I've always thought it would be a cool idea for HA to buy a bunch of the a321NEO's and deploy them on 2-3x weekly flights to small markets on the West Coast. GEG, MRY, EUG come to mind. It sounds cool in theory.Jump to post
