Re: Why Does UA Struggle With Polaris Lounge Roll Outs?

Any updates on the timeframe for IAH? I know they are working on bringing it to the existing United Club in Terminal E, supposed to encompass at least the top level from what I had heard.

Re: What would Pan Am look like today?

I will bite. I think it is more helpful to look at what they tried to do, and also what they were unfortunately forced to do, to get a sense of where they would have liked to have wound up. Pan Am tried to build up domestic feed into its hubs. It tried to acquire Northwest Airlines but was outbid. T...

Re: When will Norwegian come into DFW and IAH?

Recently relocated to the Houston metro area (in the last six months) from Cincinnati. Some observations. Both Houston and Dallas are underappreciated cities from a tourism perspective. As has been pointed out, not many AMERICANS would consider vacationing in these regions, let alone Europeans. An u...

UA IAD-DAY APR 1.7>3 MAY 1.7>3 JUN 1.7>3 JUL 1.7>3

Nice to see IAD (and DAY!) get a few adds.

Re: What's next for Spirit?

Sounds like Ecuador is the intentional route. NK isn't really major on the west coast anyhow, compared to the likes of the Midwest, each airline has their niche, WN wants to be the airline for CA, AS wants to be a west coast airline including the PNW, B6 likes the east coast to Florida, Spirit like...

Re: The Rest Of Ohio - 2017

DL is bringing back ERJ's to CVG next fall, looks like CVG-BOS/LGA to start. It is interesting that CVG is and has been for many years a 100% CRJ station. Simply not true. DL ERJs have been around CVG for most of the past decade. DL phased the ERJ-145's out starting in late 2015 and since then no r...

Re: Southwest Schedule Extension 11/02/17

I could see Allegiant significantly cutting back at CVG at some point since Allegiant is already in the airports surrounding CVG other than CMH (including DAY, LCK, IND, SDF, and LEX), since Delta, Frontier, and Southwest all serve most of the Allegiant destinations that have nonstop service out of...

I think the fact that one airline in A is going to B.


Has this been confirmed? Delta tends to be highly possessive of its terminal facilities, system-wide. I would be very surprised, if true. Particularly given the high utilization of B at peak times.

Re: United reports 2017Q3 earnings

Want to turbocharge a network transformation that otherwise is going to take half a decade to complete? Redeploy hundreds of daily flights you already have to better, stronger hubs. As much as I have hoped for success and growth, I think the writing is on the wall for the IAD hub. They missed the bo...

Re: Southwest Schedule Extension 11/02/17

I see CVG WN ops running long the lines of the other Midwest DL hubs going to around 20 destinations when the station matures. Maybe the situation changes if F9 and G4 can't make CVG work. I could see Allegiant significantly cutting back at CVG at some point since Allegiant is already in the airpor...
