Over the last four to five years of traveling through SEA, I am truly amazed at the volume of traffic that goes through that airport today. Queues can be quite a pain sometimes, but it's just cool to see such a crowded airport. It's kind of fun to watch! I agree. SEA is definitely one of the fastes...Jump to post
Oh interesting, I was checking the wrong days I guess (I was trying to book for a Friday which they operate in the summer). But I don't see anything on Wed, Monday and Saturday work fine. Reduced to 2 weekly? I am still finding it on Wednesday. It's still 3x weekly, no change. I noticed on Google F...Jump to post

Per FlightAware: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/N828AX N828AX has been flying some Aer Lingus flights to/from DUB (Dublin, Ireland) including their DUB-DFW and DUB-BOS routes.

That depends on the part of the world in question. It’s accurate to the minute in the States.
It's going to start flying to OGG in the next few months, so I'd say yes, the 7M9 is capable of flying there. As for SNA, I doubt it, but you never know. Right now, UA's 7M9s are primarily on routes to/from IAH as well as SFO/LAX to Hawaii. I think there's a good possibility that at least one of UA...Jump to post
All of their scheduled service is on the ERJ-145's. Is the rest charter? Yes, the EMB-120's and Citations are only used for charters. However, I rarely see them even flying anymore. I think they started having trouble getting parts for the EMB-120's (I think the freight operators out west snatch th...Jump to post
Can someone provide a synopsis of ViaAir? I've never heard of them....and those fliers probably wished they never had either. They're kind of similar to OneJet (if you've heard of them).

I wouldn't be too surprised to see QF run an A330 on SYD-TPE.
Also maybe Qatar to DOH...?
Ethiopian to ADD (maybe with a stop at a different airport)...?
I'm surprised at no BA PDX-LHR. Why? (1) PDX-LHR is in no way a particularly large LON market, (2) it already has a full-service airline offering the LHR route nonstop, and (3) Portland also has multiple other European nonstops which would compete against it for connections. It's not to say that BA...Jump to post
I was sure they flew from LAX, but apparently only from LGB. A majority of the airplanes we fly into LAX are Mint configured A321's, so there's no way to make that profitable. And LGB-SFO is or will be dramatically reduced. I wish JetBlue could make it work on the west coast, but they're perfectly ...Jump to post

Any plans for additional service to PDX. I flew into my new home airport Sunday night. Place was crazy busy at 12:30AM. Seems PDX has a lot of redeye departures, as well as a lot of flights that come in at the same hour. Saw a few 800's at the gates, including the one I was on. I realize it is prob...Jump to post
How about the MD90? Sure it’s still operated by DL but there were only 116 ever built. Flew one SLC-PDX in the mid 2000s, just like an MD80 series but MUCH quieter! Bae 146? Also not many built, 387 in all (including RJ85/100) Flew one ORD-ATW-ORD in the early 2000s. Sat right at the wing, the high...Jump to post
I wouldn't be surprised to see an ULCC, such as Frontier pick up the service one day. They will start LAS pretty soon. JAX-LAS will be a leisure market. Leisure travelers may tolerate low frequency. LAX business travelers wouldn't be well served by a 1x daily, 3x weekly Frontier flight. They'll con...Jump to post

Something odd to note. AS has been using a 321neo rather often on AS1809 sfo-pdx. Kinda interesting that their using a 321neo on short flights and not cross country flights to the east coast. I've seen the A321neo on SEA-PDX-SEA routing recently. I assume that they're operating their 321s on shorte...Jump to post

To destinations other than Florida, I could see 1x weekly (probably Saturday) to MDW and DAL. Not sure you would see flights outside of Florida or the Southeast on WN.
