Re: California Pacific Airlines trying again to fly

Even using Carlsbad, they will get killed by WN, AS, and anyone who flies on the left coast. I thought the same thing with B6 on the east coast. I have always been fascinated with new startups. I helped get a new airline flying many years ago. The dreams we all had, and the hopes were amazing. I ha...

Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

I’m not complaining because I much prefer WN to AA, but why did the two gates in C go to WN? Was it AA or MNAA that made the decision? Considering BNA is a mere spoke for AA now, there really isn't a need for any more gates than they have now (7 plus over overflow that is shared with WN). As far as...

Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

We have to remember that AA just gave up C-13/14 to SWA. This decision very well may be due to AA gate constraints at that time of day as the RONs are beginning to roll in at that point. In addition to taxi from the current IAB to B-11 is much easier from a logistical stand point. The flight is for...
