TO AER LINGUS: You very well maybe right.....I might have happened upon SFO
during slow periods. I certainly hope that is the case. I was on a LAS
flight with America West(737-300)last week, and when we arrived, there were only five airplanes at gates! I was so surprised!. And this was at 5pm on a Saturday. The terminal and arrivals areas were virtual ghost towns. And it was the same scene for me last month. Very troubling. I live just south of the airport, and the landing path goes right by my apartment, so I have a virtual gage of the ups & downs of traffic. And now seems to definitely be way down. I would love to get an actual percentage of the downturn in traffic at SFO
UNITED 777: Emirates at SFO
!!!! That is so exciting! Do we know an official start date! I will be there first in line to see it!
JEREMIAH: If Aer Lingus comes to SFO
, I will be the happiest guy in the world! It's one of my favorite airlines. I have never traveled with them, but they are beautiful planes from a beautiful country! I'd love to sit out on my patio and see one come in!
PLANENUTZ: I was completely disheartened when Alitalia and Swissair pulled out of SFO
. I am hoping they will reinstate service soon. I always loved seeing those Alitalia 763's sitting at the gate off the freeway. The International Terminal has seemed just so sad without them. Here hoping to a return!
Thanks to all of you for your helpful input. I really appreciate it!
