SAN-BOS Returns In March/ UA RJs LAX-SAN!

Mon Sep 29, 2003 12:17 pm

Thankfully, AA has decided NOT to cancel flights from San Diego to Boston. March 2 will see the resumption of SAN-BOS on a 757. Thanks to AA for not scrapping the flight altogether! Also, United Express/Skywest is FINALLY replacing some SAN-LAX flights Emb-120 flights with Canadair Regional Jets! 7xdaily CRJ flights will supplement the Brasilias starting in November.

Other AA SAN news:

-Eagle continues to build on its amazing success on the SAN-SJC route with the commencement of a 10th daily flight on the route. Less than a year ago, Eagle started SAN-SJC with only four daily flights. Good to see Eagle doing well on this route.

-ORD regains a 6th daily (a redeye), which has been absent for the better part of a year now.

-STL goes down to 1 daily flight after November 1.

-I have a hankering Eagle will start to deploy ERJs on SAN-LAX, in order to compete with UA. I'd love to see this, because I hate flying on those Saabs!

Has anybody heard anything else about happenings at SAN?

Haven't heard much SAN news lately but it's nice to hear there will be some more RJs flying in to town.

I guess Delta is or will be exchanging some of its MD-90s into SAN for 733s but for the time being both aircraft will continue to fly into SAN.

I imagine that any CR7s flying for America West will disappear in the near future to be replaced by CRJs and possibly CR9s but I haven't seen any confirmation of this in the schedules.

CRJ's running between LAX and SAN...that's sad. With the introduction of the CRJ's between SFO and SMF, the convenience factor has been severely cut as well as the ability to actually get on those flights...bummer.

B6---

East Miramar was added to the list by the committee that is once again studying the airport issue. But the area is set aside for housing for the Marines already and is covered with environmentally sensitive areas...it requires a great deal of cut and fill to make viable. But the Marines are not about to move....

Lindbergh is the airport we have and will always have.....

For SkyWest it's 8 on Sunday and 4 per day, not 7 per day. Eagle is already supplementing SAABs with RJ's from SAN-LAX when loads demand it. Gate to gate in an RJ is 42 Minutes.

What I will say is this. All previous studies in San Diego were flawed. It's not just a committee working on it either. Miramar is on the BRAC list in 2005, as is North Island and MCRD. East Miramar is only a backup. At least one site will become available for development by 2010, and that site will be known before the vote in 2006, with the new facility opening in 2018-2020.

First of all, staff, not the public working group, added East Miramar. Of course the Marines say it's got environmental issues. The higher-ranking love to move to San Diego, get their COLA, buy a house and retire rich. For Miramar to stay off the BRAC, they (base staff) have to justify why it should not be closed. This is a recent change in the BRAC closure process.

San Diego will reach its MAP peak in 2018. At that point, supply will be diminished and airfares will go through the roof. The only solution then will be to kick GA out of San Diego International Airport (Lindbergh has been dropped from the airport name) and accomplish a build out on the north side. There will be a solution, and it will not be to keep "SAN" as is. That solution will be on the ballot in November of 2006.

The new airport Authority (no longer the Port District) also has the right of Eminent Domain. Any new facility will result in the closure, demolition and redevelopment of SAN.

That's all I can say on the matter

How often to the RJs supplement the Saabs on SAN-LAX? Too bad it's not anything scheduled yet. I fly very often out of SAN, and would think about connecting at LAX a lot more if I didn't have to take a prop up there.

Looks like BoingGoingGone is right about the CRJs. Sabre shows the 4 or 8/day thing going on until late this year-ish.

A November '06 vote is a good idea. Gives time for BRAC to close a base in SD and make a feasible voting option.

Not sure on how often they run for Eagle. There was one on the Commuter Ramp in San Diego when I was there a couple of weeks ago. I was on SkyWest to LA frowning at the AE pax getting on the ERJ-145 going to LAX. I asked the SkyWest agent how often and they said they see Eagle with one or two a week. Usually in the morning going to LA. Eagle said they run RJ's to SJC, but that American handles them due to a distance limitation for flights out of the Commuter Terminal to prevent the terminal from getting over loaded with pax. I can see why, it was pretty crowded when I got there. I couldn't imagine a couple of 50 seaters and a 70 seater leaving at the same time, that place would just be jammed full.

Looks like the RJ revolution in the West is finally under way!
