Wish My Favorite Airport Woud Have A Flight To...?

Sun Apr 11, 2004 9:34 am

Okay, we have Wish my favorite airline would have a flight to" question, so how about his one?

Where would you like to see your favorite airport have a flight to?

My airport: San Diego, CA (SAN)

I would love to see United switch their Chicago flights to a 767 (and unrealistically a 777 somewhere...). Bigger is better by me!!

I wish Air Canada would expand their service to Calgary and/or Vancouver.

Please, PLEASE, British Airways, please return to SAN!! And Lufthansa, if you can get a A340 off the runway, we'd love to have you, too!!

Finally, I wish Southwest would fly to BFL, so I wouldn't have to drive through Los Angeles to visit my parents.

As you can see, this is a wish list - we know there's virtually NO chance of any of these ever happening...but it's always interesting to hear these thoughts!!

Well I know what you mean, I wish that my home town airport ISP - Islip, Long Island, NY would have service to ATH. That impossible! I would settle for anywhere in Europe so that I could connect to ATH but International flights are a great big dream at ISP! More realistically, I would like to see Delta back in there serving not only FLL but hopefully their Texas hub too.

I wish Northwest would resume their flight to Malaysia which was axed few years ago :

DTW - KIX - KUL
(it would be much better if KIX is replaced by NRT)

Hopefully Malaysia Airlines will one day decide to join SkyTeam for this route to take off again.

Ramerinianair,

ISP is my airport in the summer, I wish it had direct flights to Vegas and Laughlin. Not likely at all. My winter airport is IFP and I wish it had direct flights to LAX, LAS and a host of others, who knows construction is underway at IFP to make a bigger terminal, who knows?
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

To DSM, so my wife could get home and visit her mom every now and then, especially now that she's undergoing chemo for breast cancer and cancer lf the lymph. A CLE-DSM would be welcome.

Having family in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem area of NC, I wish there was a direct flight from LGW to GSO...and preferably using a 744 (I long to fly a real "Jumbo" again)...and operated by VS (my favourite)!!

And yes, I know that AA already flies LGW-RDU, which isn't that far from GSO, and that USAirways flies direct LGW-CLT, again, not that far to GSO, but GSO direct would save the drive at the other end (the family will always collect us from GSO, but we have to make our own way from any other airport!). It would also be nice to fly a 744 across the pond without having to make an internal flight on a teensy-weensy RJ at the other end.

I can but dream!

I wish NW would start a LAX-MSP-LGW flight like they had a few years ago, that would bring a NW 330 in to LAX.

From LBB I have one small wish, UnitedExpress or Frontier express from DEN. I think we could fill the flight it would give us another option for connecting and the flight to DEN would allow for weekend ski trips. I think it was once flown, but it must have been dropped. Maybe when UAL returns to its former self it be reinstated.

Delta Triple-7's from SLC to NRT, LGW (or LHR if they ever get slots/change Bermuda 2!), CDG, FRA, GRU/GIG, EZE, SYD, as well as 777's on the SLC-JFK, CVG, ATL, HNL routes currently serviced with 757's or 767's. (I know, that's a pipedream). But I'll be happy if DL opens any overseas route from SLC, or if Air France does a service from SLC-CDG - after all AF is a Skyteam member and SLC is Delta's western hub, I would think there'd be a chance that route might work).

Hi Bubbinski!

That's what I forgot: Because I like SLC very much and as you mentioned it being a successful DL hub I would really like to see:

DL), Germany">DUS-SLC (of course operated by Delta Airlines !!)

SLC and Delta - a great combination!

Here are my responses first:
FunFlyer:
Southwest does now have daily MHT-LAS nonstops.

CoTXDFW777AA:
Aspen Airways used to fly LBB-AMA-DEN under their own name and as a UA Express airline w/ BAe 146s. Since Great Lakes already flies to AMA now, I could see at max 2 EM2s to DEN. But, then again, folks there probably would balk at a prop job to DEN.
Would like to see good old days in LBB when DL,AA,BN,CO,as well as TX,WN,etc flew real jets there.

As far as my favorite airport (BOI), I would like to see a nonstop to Vancouver,BC or Calgary,AB, but I seriously doubt that will ever happen.

Hi Travelagent

A flight to Dusseldorf would be neat too. And I'll add Rome, Moscow (via Aeroflot) and Seoul (Korean Air) to my list. Also a flight to Kahului and more flights to Canada.

EWR has it pretty good. Although I wish some carriers had some more flights instead of Continental basically owning the airport:

AA and UA bring back the London Service on 777s!

AA:
EWR-SJC
EWR-FLL
EWR-LAS
EWR-SFO
EWR-CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO

UA: Bring Back:
EWR-SEA
EWR-HNL
EWR-BOS
EWR-CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO
....and a dozen other cities you've cut over the past 15 years!

CO:
EWR-ATH
EWR-SVO (Moscow)
EWR-ARN

DL:
EWR-DFW (Why don't you serve that route?)
EWR-PBI
EWR-NAS
EWR-MIA

I wish EWR had direct service to Havana, Cuba. I hope to be able to visit this fascinating island nation sometime.

In addition, nearby Union City is the second-largest Cuban-American community (after Miami).
