Re: Why doesnt UA level Terminal C EWR?

Echoing those above. UA's EWR C is in no need of being leveled, plain and simple. It is easily one of their best hub facilities and one of the nicest in the NYC metro area, even before the recent renovations. There are MANY other places that need more attention at this point. And not just at United...

Re: OAG Changes 7/22/2018: UA Adds LAX-PRC,DEN-MMH/MRY/PRC;UA Drops EWR-MYR/SJC;OS Drops MIA;MEX Changes

DL CVG-IAH DEC 1.0>0.6 Is DL really cutting back on CVG-IAH nonstop service, or is this a misfiling error? WN could add CVG-HOU nonstop service in order to fill in a void with DL cutting back on CVG-IAH nonstop service and with F9 having discontinued CVG-IAH nonstop service. UA dominates on this ro...

It's not even close to being parallel with Camden, Atlantic City or Millville which is where the bu...

I echo UA IAH-DAY, a significant hole on both ends. I for one would benefit. However, I also enjoy the multiple, well-timed (and all two-class!) UA Express flights from IAH-CVG, which is no doubt at least partially supported by the lack of DAY.

Would love to see UA IAH-CDG.

Re: AA CLT hub today vs DL CVG hub at the peak?

I have fond memories of transiting through CVG in the summer of 2003. Man, what a booming operation! Obviously it was RJ-dominated, but mainline ops were also still going strong at that time, sitting somewhere around 200 daily. All of Concourse B and all but a few gates on Concourse A were dedicated...

Ah, DAY. My former, long-time home airport. DAY was booming through the 00's decade, at one point being amongst the fastest growing airports in the country, led by strong performance on DL, FL, and US. CVG's recent upswing has been DAY's downfall. Not only is CVG winning now on price, it is winning ...

I do not see F9, G4, WN, or UA moving to Concourse B, for the foreseeable future. During traffic banks, DL occupies most gates already. Giving up these few gates to AA will keep things fairly tight. Maybe one lone B gate goes to a random future carrier, e.g. AS, otherwise I see irreconcilable encroa...

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.
