Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

connect it to the current terminal via an underground people mover and it would be more than adequate for the foreseeable future IMO. Wouldn't this be problematic in terms of traffic, i.e. could the current terminal arrival/departure area handle road traffic for 70-80 gates? Apparently there is a l...

Re: PAL outlines A350 strategy, to launch MNL-NYC

He simply posted his opinion. Okay we can safely say it won't happen anytime soon but I will say AUS is adding 2 A350 accommodating gates so at least we will have them for the future.

Re: PAL outlines A350 strategy, to launch MNL-NYC

AUS would welcome PAL with open arms, but I'm not exactly sure how big the Austin metropolis area would support the flight. It would definitely need good connection to the rest of Asia to serve as a one-stop hop. I can't handle a.net anymore. AUS-MNL. What's next, BOI-BKK? Thinking Boise, Idaho is ...

Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

Great, that's what a master plan is supposed to account for. If you look at most similar airports master plans I'm sure you will see plans for additional runways as well.... AUS's current runway infrastructure can handle 44mil pax per year, so any additional runways are at least a decade or more aw...

Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

AUS would make a dream mid america hub for B6. I hope Delta stays far away from it, will be rough enough as is. I also thought the same about B6. We've heard rumors that JetBlue was considering Austin as some sort of hub over the years but nothing ever came of it. They haven't added any flights fro...

Interesting. Hensel Phelps will be the firm constructing the new Concourse D at BNA, which should begin construction here pretty soon. Are they really putting A380-compatible gates in the new addition? Does AUS anticipate that it could get A380 service sometime in the near future? I guess they are ...

Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

I still think Delta has more in store for AUS. I'd hardly expect for the direct to Amsterdam to automatically become year around before the test service occurs during SXSW, plus the east terminal isn't even complete yet so let's have some patience. I suspect Delta is one by one setting up the pieces...

Re: Delta Air Lines Network Thread 2018

Texas is the second largest state in the Union (population wise), there is plenty of traffic to go around. I disagree. I don't think there is enough traffic in Texas to support a third network carrier hub on top of DFW (the second largest hub in the country) and IAH (the fifth largest), and on top ...

Re: Delta Air Lines Network Thread 2018

Why can't it be a hub? DL needs a presence in Texas, it is the biggest hole in their network. Texas is home to 3 of the top 5 fastest growing city economies according to a recent Forbes magazine article, so DL is missing out. https://www.forbes.com/sites/karstenstrauss/2018/01/03/the-10-big-u-s-cit...

Re: Austin Texas Thread - 2018

So does today's AUS-CVG announcement negate any big announcement for tomorrow? I wouldn't think so because if there is a big announcement forthcoming tomorrow, a single route addition wouldn't be much of an announcement in of itself. I would venture there will be a few additional announcements like...

Re: What distance is too short for a plane but too far by car?

AUS-SAT. Two large Texas cities that are just a little too far apart to be considered one giant metropolitan area yet too close to have commercial air service between the two. The drive between Austin and San Antonio is approximately one hour. Flying time between the two would be under twenty minut...

You think it's a foregone conclusion it's DEN now? 20 city list was just released. How many more gates could BA want? I suppose A380 service could make sense if they get the demand, but they wouldn't go double daily would they? My BA friend did confirm that the 744 is here solely because the 787s a...

Unlikely they will have an announcement about the skyclub which is already known about and advertised.

As far as AMS we shall see if it has anything to do with extending the short stint during SXSW.

I often wonder what is in Austin that traffic is increasing so fast. Are they drawing passengers from San Antonio? Population growth, tech growth, e.t.c. The city grew +19.93% from 2010-2016.... I agree the passenger growth at AUS comes mostly from population and job growth, however (and this is ju...
