Who's Big At BDL

Sat Dec 17, 2005 6:49 am

Hi folks

My company is making an investment in the Storrs mansfield region of CT next year, and as such I imagine that we're going to be in and out of there a lot.

My question is this: Who is big at Bradley?
For staff based in that part of the world, who would be the best
airline to stay loyal to? Who's the biggest there? United? CO? DL?

The bradley website doesn't appear to be much help.

For legacy carriers, DL and US have the biggest presence (though that could change with the SONG absorption back into DL, as a pretty good number of DL flights at BDL are SONG flights to Fla.)

WN has a large presence as well.
I'M BAAAAAAAACK!

DL, US, AA, UA, and WN are all strong at BDL.

Yes, DL and US are the main ones, NW and United also.

What you setting up in Storrs? - I work there at the Uni and fly in and out of BDL a lot. It's about 40 mins.

As a back-up, PVD is a a bit farther. Mapquest shows BDL to be 38.88 miles away while PVD is 49.74 miles. Route 6 through CT and RI is a easy drive (no city traffic).

NW isn't too big in BDL compared to the others. More importantly, where would the employees be traveling to/from this new location???

BDL's largest market share is DL, followed by US, AA and WN, I believe.

Also serving BDL is UA, CO, NW, HP, Midwest (Skyway), Indy Air and AC Jazz.

Quoting PVD757 (Reply 4):

Well all over the USA, plus the odd trips to ARN and LHR (im assuming I'll have to go to BOS for these but that's okay, and this is just for me to escape when i start going crazy!), as well as the odd trip to MEL.

Quoting Aeronick (Reply 3):

Great! Well it is to do with the University, a service aimed at the Students. It's all very hush hush, but you'll see soon enough if you're around next year. The area has been selected for a pilot operation for our concept, so it looks like I'm going to be calling it home.

What I was trying to do was simply get a 'departure' list and see what airline flies where with what aircraft. Eg, NW has 10 DC-9s a day to DTW, UA 12 A320s to ORD etc. I'm wondering if CO is the easiest to use simply being linked up to the relatively close EWR hub? Except the airports website is hopeless and you can't just obtain such simple information from it.

DL and AA both of a large share of loyal flyers in the area. WN is now a big player too, but in terms of non stops, you'll find the most choices on the two big legacy carriers.

Personally, here's my thoughts:

Personally, I think US/UA will be your best bet for your travel. Here's why:
Out of BDL, Star Alliance offers a large variety of destinations, with AC, UA and US serving the airport. AC serves YYZ and YUL on a mix of Dash 8/Beech 1900, UA serves ORD and IAD multiple times daily (including multiple mainline flights to both cities) and US serves PHL, DCA, CLT with mainline and PIT, BUF and ROC on Express. This alone will get you all around the US, with a double connection to Australia, and a connection at FRA for LHR and ARN.

Another strong option is AA for you. Serves DFW, ORD, MIA, SJU, RDU and STL, although with not as much frequency as Star Alliance. That is the major drawback of AA, and the East Coast coverage is relatively weak. Out of BOS for Europe, there is the non-stop to LHR which can connect to BA for ARN service.

SkyTeam has several options. They boast the only transcontinetal flight out BDL, a daily 757 to LAX. ATL serves a large portion of the country well, and CVG covers the rest, except for intra-northeast travel, in which you can use CO out of EWR. NW is a minor player at BDL, only a few flights to DTW and MSP each. CO is mostly all RJs out of BDL as well, only a daily mainline down to IAH. So, if upgrades interest you, Delta would work well there, although they have cut down on BDL capacity (with 767s having been pulled out of the market).

BUF (3x)
CLT (6x)
DCA (5x)
MCO (Saturday only)
PHL (8x)
PHX (1x)
PIT (5x)

There's also a US Airways Club.

I talked to an agent the other day at BDL, she told me that the "New Delta" will stay at BDL and all of the song routes will still be served with the whole 9 yards of service.

Can you bring this hush hush service down to Hamden...I can use a service aimed at students!

No need for a double connect at FRA for LHR. You can single connect to Heathrow at ORD or IAD on United.

One benefit of US (or any other carrier in that terminal, for that matter), is that there is a US club at BDL. If you will be flying a lot, you should consider a membership.

wow someone from Hamden. I grew up in New Haven and Hamden. How are things there? I not been there in a few years now. I miss some things but don't miss enough to head back too often. But I do miss Pepi's and the Doodle.

Quoting Lufthansa (Thread starter):
My company is making an investment in the Storrs mansfield region of CT next year, and as such I imagine that we're going to be in and out of there a lot.

I have found DL the best for going back home to visit, no matter where I was living at the time.

If you do end up living in CT there are some places you have to visit. One is Pepi's Pizza in New Haven. Two is the Yankee Doodle. Also in New Haven. But be aware Doodle closes at 2 after the lunch rush. Pepi's can be very busy and lines can end up outside waiting to get a seat, but well worth the wait to eat there.

Good luck with your new thing you doing in CT. I do need to get back there to visit.
