Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2019

PHL released their Nov pax numbers Month Domestic: +4.6%, International: +10.7% YTD Domestic: +7.5%, International: +5.7% Pax: 29,165,480 (only 400,000 less than the entire year of 2017) The percentages are likely a bit high because of the down year that 2017 was.

AA winter cuts at PHL look like they are mostly extended through March. Par for the course at AA. But 2x on PHL-IAH and 5x PHL-ATL with only one morning flight is less than ideal.

UA's reduction of PHL-SFO is a sting, but still months away for tweaks to be made.

There's not a lot of non-stop capacity on SEA-WAS (looking at 6/3/19): 3x UA SEA-IAD 1x AS SEA-BWI 1x AS SEA-IAD 2x AS SEA-DCA 1x DL SEA-IAD Maybe there doesn't need to be. AS doesn't have redeyes in the market - odd, given other eastern markets for AS. DL's sole flight is timed to compete with a U...

Re: American Airlines Philadelphia (PHL) Hub

Looking at the #'s so far for 2018, the upgrading to mainline on many routes and the additional TATL flights are having quite an effect on passenger #'s: May Up 8.0% June up 12.6% July up 10.5% August up 8.6% 2018 will be a year for solid growth for PHL, quite the change from the stagnant #'s over ...

Re: TWA L1011 service from PHL-STL

Diving into timetables from a few years earlier it appears it was PHL-STL-LAX in 1984. These timeables do not list the operating aircraft. http://www.departedflights.com/TW020184p54.html http://www.departedflights.com/TW020184p48.html TWA flt 443 PHL-STL dep 7am arr 815am TWA flt 443 STL-LAX dep 915...

I'm surprised CLT doesn't have more international connections for it's size.

There are rumors of more TA flights, but I'd hardly call the current/future lineup a deficiency (FRA, MUC, LHR, CDG, MAD, FCO, DUB, BCN)

Re: OAG Changes 10/14/2018: HUGE UA Change, Numerous Routes Added and Dropped

Ugh, with IAD-PHL ending, it's becoming even harder now for TATL flying out of PHL on Star Alliance. I think it's down to LH to FRA or AC via YUL/YYZ. And in my experience they actually tried to route a number of domestic connections via IAD over ORD or IAH. Interesting that for the first time in f...

Re: LH switches CLT to A350

Every A330-300 route out of MUC will be upgauged to A359 / A346 next summer because LH will be moving all the A333s from MUC to FRA. They will be replaced by new A350s and A346s coming back from FRA. New A350 routes from MUC in S19: YYZ YUL IAD CLT BOM KIX Some routes that they prevously used the A...

Re: LH switches CLT to A350

LH is also upgrading FRA-PHL to the 744 from the 333 in S19. Definitely seems like a shot at AA.

Re: American Airlines Philadelphia (PHL) Hub

Two scheduled passenger 744's into PHL each day, assuming no changes from BA. Has to be at least 15 years since that last happened when BA operated 2x 744. I did not know PHL had two 747 flying to PHL. Sucks AA couldn't complete with LH at FRA seeing two 747 at PHL is going to be exciting for me at...
