"Shortlisted airport meetings will take place at the end of April at Routes Europe, followed by an official announcement of 2019 destinations in early May"
If true, we should hear about new routes shortly.
I was just about to type this. I'm also unsure about BWI. My understanding is that IAD struggles to maintain a daily service as is, although the growth of the A321LR fleet might offset this problem. Although I think it struggled during its first years of operation, EI now seems to be doing alright ...Jump to post

TPA gets hit pretty good by the F9 reductions as well. One bit of good news for TPA is the add by DL to BOS. Three a day. Looks like they are starting to give JetBlue a run for their money? I expect most of not all the F9 TPA cuts will be reversed in their winter/spring schedule. Frontier is highly...Jump to post
TPA just recorded its busiest month ever for the second year in a row. Frontier and Spirit are really on the rise in Tampa (and throughout the country for that matter), and I don't think we've seen expansion like this since Southwest disrupted the market a few decades ago. I think Southwest and All...Jump to post
According to anna.aero they are trying BNA-TTN again. Not sure why. It didn't work the first time, a little skeptical it will work 2nd time around. Where do you get the load factor information? I am highly skeptical of these numbers. A thread named Frontier Load Factor. The loads appear good. Too g...Jump to post
I don’t see Aer Lingus in Tampa. If they can maintain a daily service to Florida during summer season (4w MCO + 3w MIA), that will be their priority. There’s no way they will add another FL destination. There are more substantial gaps they are likely to plug first - DFW/DEN/PIT/CLE/MSP and YHZ. I a...Jump to post

A leaked list of tenants in MSY's new north terminal shows Thomas Cook, so I guess an announcement of MAN-MSY should be coming soon. I wonder if they will start in February/spring of 2019 when the terminal opens or wait until the summer. Spring is our busiest tourism season with Mardi Gras and the ...Jump to post
MT have only offered ad-hoc cruise charters in the past. TUI have also done the same from U.K. airports in the recent past and they are not present on the list, so, can’t be that in my opinion. I’ve heard rumours that Baltimore (appearing in GDS) and New Orleans are 2of 4 new routes to be announced...Jump to post
TPA … 93.7% DEN … 91.6% MCO … 89.8% RSW... 85.8% PHL … 85.7% PHX … 85.7% LAS … 84.2% BNA Total 88.7% (F9 Load Factor Thread) It appears Frontier does pretty well out of Nashville. I wonder if they'll ever add additional cities from BNA. BNA-PHX got cut, right? Replaced with TPA this winter? I can't...Jump to post

I just checked their website and see nothing on their route map and Harrisburg isn’t listed in their drop down menu.
I'm surprised TPA hasn't been mentioned on here at 2 or 3x weekly. It would require an A330 but it's doable. TPA doesn't have Norwegian yet so I think EI would be safe to doing DUB. TPA was mentioned in post 11, 24, and 34. As EI continues their U.S. expansion, I feel like TPA is bound to happen ev...Jump to post

I’d suggest Dublin to both Dallas and Denver for future A330 service. For A321LR: PIT, MSP and Halifax. I don’t see Tampa ever happening. They are happy with daily to Florida right now; with 4w to Orlando and 3w to Miami. TPA and Aer Lingus have met multiple times regarding potential DUB-TPA servic...Jump to post
I'll throw in PDX, due to EI's future partnership with AS. While I think we will see them in PDX eventually, I doubt the route will be added next year since their SEA service hasn't even started yet. They will probably first want to see how many people connect off the SEA flight onward to PDX via t...Jump to post

This is why ISP needs to attract a "real" airline, and why the F9 experiment will likely fail.
If the 321’s free up a few A330’s then I could see SAN, DEN, LAS, DFW & TPA. LAS, TPA & SAN might be good candidates as routes to place extra 330 capacity on during the winter/spring. All only 2-3x a week and some would definitely be seasonal. Just my two cents...Jump to post
I recommend reaching out to ISP's air service director. They may be willing to share some inside info with you. This has worked for me in terms of learning about TPA's routes. I hope he's very, very careful, because he could be putting his job at risk. You referred to "inside info" and th...Jump to post

Well, kinda disappointing that F9 didn't do much for BNA this schedule release. Has me wondering if there really are management issues in Nashville regarding air service.

Now that we are nearing the next schedule extension (Feb 15) does anyone have any predictions. I am always curious to see what people predict vs what happens. I think you will see more new California service. FLL-OAK/LAX/SAN/SJC/SMF all seem like possibilities. I've heard that WN is interested in T...Jump to post

Interesting in that AC is increasing SAN-YVR to triple-daily service this summer (reported in a previous OAG thread.) So apparently it's not the market but something to do with WS?

Possible TPA air service additions during 2018- AS- LAX, SFO, PDX and 2nd daily SEA That's a lot of long, thin capacity for AS to the West Coast. SFO is most likely.
