How about AL with SDF-BUF
UA had nonstop HSV-LAX back in the day
Sift has been doing this for a while now , and before that there was Xtra Airways and also Allegiant Air. This program has been in place for years now. Also, the flights are to Wendover, UT since that is where the airport is. ;) I concur that anything over maybe a short overnight in Wendover is too ...Jump to post
They had a codeshare with WN out of BWI before It was far removed from a codeshare arrangement. It was basically just a quasi-interline agreement between the two. Similar, I believe, as the agreement between WN and Volaris a few years ago. IIRC. Heck, I didn't even realize that FI had abandonded BW...Jump to post
No pics but was at DAL and saw the dual jetways in action for one flight. By the time the rear one was in place, the vast majority of the pax were off. IIRC only about 15 of 85 pax used the rear one. Thought it a waste for smallish load. At Albany, NY a couple of years ago, I made a point of deplani...Jump to post
I always liked seeing the sched flights INT-GSO in the early 80s PI tts.
As for this name change, absolutely inane IMO. From a decent name to a moronic IMO switch.
Sadly, I bet they think this will make a difference in service or passenger levels lol.
w IIRC, both UA and AA took advantage of WN dropping GSP-MDW. The demand has been backfilled with regional jets. WN coming back now with a 737 would be a bloodbath. The station likely is contracted out, just like RIC. Their cost to keep the station in the network is probably small. No, GSP is not a...Jump to post
WN may eventually add some more service out of RIC. STL or MDW comes to mind. DL to SLC from RIC is a definite possibility. UA from ORF to DEN should have already happened. I think Spirit will add more service from RIC as I expect them to be very successful from RIC as Air Tran was before WN screwe...Jump to post

I see, according to Mokulele Airlines' schedule, that they show services ended to Santa Maria on November 30th. I'll assume that is the case since one would hope that it would be accurate. Amazingly, it seems the lame switch to BUR didn't have the effect of better loads. Anyone with half an idea of ...Jump to post

UA LBB-MHK JAN 0.1>0.0 UA MCI-MHK JAN 0.1>0.0 Obviously a mistake, and easy to do, but what was this supposed to be?

FNT-MSP is just 2 flights until June, then 3. They are increasing capacity a few weeks later is all and WN will still be in the market in May 2018. Wasn't WN service from FNT primarily to Florida? No, is/was 3x to MDW w/ a seasonal TPA and MCO. Seems as if vast majority of AA changes are cuts. Very...Jump to post

UA is launching flights from ILM to both IAD and ORD.
It's not noted in the OAG thread either.
Will the market be large enough to support them?
Is F9 still at the airport?
Somewhat on a different tangent, I love going through the old OAGs (late 70s/early 80s) I have and seeing so many places that have a multitude of flights by a myriad of airlines. What strikes me the most, however, is that usually the majority, if not all flights , go on very short hops and longest t...Jump to post

They should go with "Stockton-East Bay International Airport of San Joaquin". Most potential pax from SF bay area would ( assumedly) be from the East Bay.

Too bad. I was hoping that this would be a decent thing, but I guess one can't force people to fly lol.

I think a worse example of being the same but different were CO UA and Frontier in mid/late 70s all with same designer. Only difference was aft section and colors. So very unoriginal IMO.Jump to post
It is 50%. I would think LNK would be better served getting a non-network carrier (although Allegiant did try)but proximity to OMA would probably end that before it would start. So business, govt, and N would be about only reliable sources of continual traffic. Therefore, about only one to want to t...Jump to post
