Tells me that some of the more random adds by G4 such as SYR and RIC must actually be working out. Will be interesting to see how they expand in the future out of BNA.
This leaves BNA, STL and CVG as the only remaining major midsized markets that don’t have NK. BNA is the most surprising given it’s massive tourist appeal, I wonder what’s going on? You'd need to add SAT, MKE, SLC, SMF, and CLT to that list. BNA from what I've heard has space issues. BNA doesn’t ev...Jump to post

I'm not sure how historically accurate the folks on BNA's social media are, but looking at F9's route map, I'm actually confused on what they could actually add that's totally new to BNA. PBI - Served by WN in the early to mid 2000s ISP/PVD - Served by WN in the mid to early 2000s I don't see them a...Jump to post

They are mentioned in this article.

I think the lack of the phrase "new airline" is key. BNA likes to tout new airlines. So I'm guess F9 or SY with an outside shot of NK.[/quote] They haven’t always touted a new airline in announcement teases. Keep in mind, they did move Contour/Boutique’s counter to a makeshift desk by the ...Jump to post
Question. As flights increase, will BNA replace ATL as a WN operating base? According to Wikipedia, ATL listed with the likes of MDW, BWI, DEN, LAS, DAL, etc, as an operating base while BNA is only listed as a focus city. A operating base has been rumored for years. It very much could happen. Espec...Jump to post
So about maxed out for now then. 7 away. Are more gates opening up in 2020 or is someone losing gates? BNA is going under an expansion that is changing the airport completely by 2023. A new concourse is being added right next to Southwest's operation. http://bnavisionnashville.com/site/web/assets/2...Jump to post
How much more room does BNA have to grow with their gate constraints? I know in the last year they have added a ton. Something like 125 a day now next summer. Not sure how many gates they have there and how many they can realistically push thru there? Not talking about what all destination wise the...Jump to post
I see a lot more additions at BNA this year. They are going to try to turn it into a southeastern BWI. FLL will see more cutbacks. STL will probably see minimal growth. more growth in west coast to combat AS. Will be interesting to see what happens here. SAN/SJC are obviously the hot spots. One thi...Jump to post
The CoC has been lobbying for several years to get a flight to Tokyo. IMO, it will eventually happen. Being the home of Nissan North American HQ plus a decent number of smaller Japanese companies that support Nissan helps. The consulate was moved from New Orleans to Nashville a few years ago. A 3x ...Jump to post
I would love a new Caribbean flight, or dare I say a second transatlantic flight. I doubt it will happen, but one can dream. Also doesn’t BNA want a flight to Tokyo? I thought I read that they were interested in that somewhere. Talks of Asian service have apparently been rumbled before. It’s someth...Jump to post
16 million passengers in 2018? Just was looking at the BNA Vision plans. Do you think they will hit 16 million this year? If it does, Nashville will need to throw out their projections and revise then, cause they'll hit 23 million well before 2037. I would not be surprised if they pushed 20 million...Jump to post
BNATraveler and CubsRule - nice graphics and info/questions. I don't have the answer....all I know is that BNA traffic has doubled since 2011. Nashville has not doubled in population in that same time (albeit it has added @275,000); yes I know that tourism/conventions are increasing; yes I know the...Jump to post

Regardless, NK in BNA is simply a matter of when
BNA-BUR could never...ever be supported by O&D between those cities....there is not that much entertainment industry traffic.
