Delta Vs. American At BOS

Sun Oct 02, 2005 4:04 am

What airline is bigger at Boston: American/AE or Delta/DCi?? I know its American but why did DL cut back some flights and destinations?? I also know DL has its shuttle operation in BOS, and AE has "frequent departures". But where does DL including (DCI and Song) fly to from Boston and where does AA (including AE) fly to from there?? Also why does DL have their own terminal there when they underuse it?? also what does US Airways have going on there?? I think its one of their focus cities.

can remember when DL was using the B767-300 on the JFK-BOS flights...
I used the flight once, the flight was full with passengers coming from SEL on KE.

DL is the largest carrier at BOS by passengers carried. DL's numbers should continue to increase with new service to Nassau starting soon, and service to LAX and SFO recently commencing.

As for your question about DL having their own terminal, when originally planned, DL planned to have a much larger operation at BOS, with service to LGW, FCO, and other destinations. Unfortunately 9/11 happened and other things.

There was an article in the Boston Globe on DL and thier new terminal A, DL is thinking aboug cutting back on some deomestic service and focusing on international service.


I have not been in the new Terminal A, but I have heard that is very nice, Terminal B, where AA is, is not to great, more on the awful side.

A Saturday-only flight to Nassau is hardly going to give a jump in Delta's numbers. Delta is ending flights at BOS too, like one daily to Fredricton and both daily flights to Burlington.

No, it's not really a case of money. Massport has plenty of that. It's beause Massport is quite possibly the worst-run, quasi-public agency in the country. I've heard bad things out of Miami but I don't think even that matches how bad Massport is. Massport is the agency where any high-profile, political figures put their brother's best friend's neighbour.

In the case of AA, it was a matter of money. AA had announced to great fanfare the renovation and expansion of their side of Terminal B. Then 11 September happened and they couldn't afford the project (some would argue they couldn't afford the JFK project either, but they were locked into that one). Likewise, DL was locked into the BOS project and their JFK plans got shelved. Though AA have taken over the Amelia Earhart terminal at South Cargo for a lot of their Eagle ops, though I believe that building will be gone with the construction of Runway 14/32 going ahead.

Even Terminal E (the IAB) is a mess. $300 million dollars have been dropped into the terminal yet all we've got is a new check-in hall that hasn't been built for expansion. So any airline wishing to add a flight involving check-in between 1400-1900...good luck. Oh, but that's not a big concern when there aren't even gates available. I know in Europe and Asia it's common to have hardstand boardings and de-planings but BOS hasn't been set up for that (at least not yet) and only when there's no other option (including sitting on the ramp for up to 30 minutes waiting for a gate to open) will a plane taxi into North Cargo and turn-around there.

Don't get me wrong, the check-in hall is gorgeous. Extremely open and airy, abundunt natural light, etc but they haven't even renovated the airside yet, which is pretty nasty. Around 1700 at the western end of the terminal by gates 7 and 8 there are about 700 people every day because Air France, Alitalia, and British Airways all have flights departing within an hour. From what I've heard it's reminiscent of Mumbai. I won't even go into the ramp operations either.

All I'm saying is that Massport comes out with these elaborate plans and then scales them back til it's nothing like it was planned to be. Massport want Logan to be a major international player but just aren't prepared to spend the money to do it. BOS is a pretty good airport in terms of size. It's manageable, and offers lots of a flights to places people want to go, but at the end of the day the facilities that are common the world over are just not to be found here. It's sad, and hopefully that will be rectified but I doubt it, at least not with Massport and it's abundant red tape still in charge.

This is true. Prior to 9/11, AA was planning on building an extension on to Terminal B, out to meet the point at the tip of USAirways' end of Terminal B. They were going to have their own International Arrivals area over in B, and move their LHR/CDG arrivals to its own terminal. The terrorist attacks, however, put that on hold.

With its spankin new Terminal A which I have passed through, DL definitely has the potential to be BOS number 1 carrier in all aspects. I wish they would make it happen already. AA is a very aggressive competitor and seem more committied to mainline service than DL....time will tell.

I agree. AA seems a bit more committed to mainline service at BOS than DL, but DL has a lead in regional routes, linking BOS with cities like YFC and YHZ that I think Eagle could have flown successfully had they stuck it out at BOS.

I disagree. DL operates mainline service from BOS to ATL, CVG, SLC, MCO, TPA, RSW, FLL, PBI, LGA, LAS, LAX, SFO, and BDA. With their new schedule effective in December, BOS-DCA also gains a few mainline flights, though these are still tentative. They are also starting BOS-NAS and have applied for BOS-CUN. Adding regional services DL serves BOS from YHZ, YFC, BGR, PWM, BTV, JFK, DCA, ORF, CVG, CMH, RDU, GSO, JAX, with service soon starting to BWI.

AA seems to have an equal commitment, offering mainline service from BOS to CDG, DFW, LAX, LHR, MAN, MCO, MIA, ORD, SAN, SDQ, SFO, SJU, SNN, and STL. Recent routes which have lost BOS mainline service include SEA, LAS, FLL, BDA, BNA, and RDU. I don't see this as any bigger of a commitment. Adding Eagle AA serves BOS to BGR, BWI, CMH, DCA, EWR, JFK, LGA, RDU, STL, YUL, and YYZ.

I stand corrected....Im not that familiar with all the markets served and with what equipment from BOS, thus I said AA "seems" more committed to mainline service. And in general terms, I still maintain that they are. DL is RJ crazy. It is a well known fact that the DL Conx operation is the biggest of its kind in the US.

So what, that's not what was previously said. It should be recognized that AA Eagle is actually more prevalent at BOS than DL Connection is. DL Connection is the largest regional carrier (albeit a number of carriers), not at BOS they are smaller than AA Eagle.

US Airways operates the most total frequencies at BOS, the most mainline frequencies at BOS, and the most destinations at BOS. I think right now they even have the most seats at BOS, which is the first time that's happened in a good while. They don't carry quite as many pax, though, as AA or DL, due to a lower average size of aircraft (thanks to their using props instead of all RJs) and a higher reliance on the lower load factor Shuttle markets.

US Airways: Aruba, Bermuda, Charlotte, Cancun, Fort Lauderdale, Las Vegas, Montego Bay, Nassau, New York/LaGuardia, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Juan, Washington/Reagan

US Airways Express: Albany, Augusta, Bar Harbor, Buffalo, Charleston, Harrisburg, Indianapolis, Islip, Myrtle Beach, Nantucket, Presque Isle, Richmond, Rochester, Rockland, Savannah, Syracuse, White Plains

It was to be shared by AA and US, and to connect to both carriers' gates in Terminal B.

I also think that USAirways has the most frequencies at BOS. I was there on thursday 09/29th and the US side of teminal B was full with travelers. Lots of mainline, express and shuttle. I was just sitting inside the teminal and enjoyed seeing those US birds outside. I saw lots of DL and AA birds too but I do think US has more frequencies though.

DL serves both YFC and YHZ only from BOS, plus they are the only carrier in general to offer transborder service to YFC.

Going by the number of daily flights, DL is bigger (roughly 120 vs 90), but as far as seats are concerned, AA should still be larger, thanks in particular to the loads of A300s out of JFK. Though DL might sooner or later pass them, if their recent expansion continues.

Read what I said -- "I think Eagle could have flown successfully had they stuck it out at BOS." I surely recognize what you are saying and agree with you completely -- those markets are both now covered fine and there is no room for AA on either one. However, I definitely think that AA could have made a 2x daily ER3 to YHZ and a 1x daily ER3 to YFC work had they stayed with a major Eagle hub at BOS. But they just cut back so much, that they could not support now -- they missed their opportunity.

True...but BOS-DCA-BOS has not been flown with Shuttle a/c for some years now. Comair took over the route shortly after DL started it. Moreover, DL did not fly this route as part of its Shuttle ops until the late 90's IIRC and even then it didn't have the frequency of LGA-BOS and LGA-DCA.

I believe that routes such as the DL Connection to YFC is a subsidized route, and what often happens is that once the "travel bank" money disappears, so does the route.

Yes, BOS-YFC is subsidised. I forget who. It's either the city of Fredericton or the government of New Brunswick, though I'd imagine that there has to be some benefit as the flight has been operating for a few years now. Though, I'd say that Fredericton is marginal at best and would most likely be dropped if the subsidies stop.

I've been through AA at Terminal B a number of times, and I don't think it is that bad. Now, before AMR bought Business Express, that part of Terminal C was in bad shape, and that was in 1998. I'd hate to see it now.

Quoting SHUPirate1 (Reply 35):
For what it's worth, flights and frequencies for both American/Eagle and Delta/Connection from Boston, Massachusetts, for tommorrow, October 5, 2005:

Just to note, however, that both airlines operate quite reduced schedules in October to allow for more planes to go into maintence (i.e. AA's 6th daily MIA-BOS does not operate in October). Also, AA has a multitude of Caribbean routes from BOS that don't operate daily or don't operate between Labour Day and Halloween, and are excluded from that list.

Quoting SESGDL (Reply 29):
Those are technically mainline. Whether you like it or not Song is owned and operated by DL with mainline aircraft and mainline B757-200 pilots.

I realize what Song is, but most times people make the distinction. Same with UA/Ted. Ted is mainline A319/A320 pilots and mainline aircraft, but is all Y and has different service levels and is not considered "mainline UA". Same with Song

Some of the air craft used on these routes is not always the case. For example, I have flown to CVG on DL a few times and I flew on a 752. I have also flown on a 762 to ATL and I know that one some days during the week there are a couple of 763s. Also, I believe they are changing their shuttle flights to MD-80s. Also, LAX is twice daily. MCO is currently 3x daily with 752s, that will increase during the winter as will FLL and TPA.
