US To Start BNA-LAS Flights

Mon Jul 17, 2006 10:51 pm

Dont think this has been posted yet....

TEMPE, Ariz., July 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Effective Oct. 5, US Airways (NYSE: LCC - News) will begin service three times per week between its hub in Las Vegas and "Music City" -- Nashville, Tenn. Passengers will be able to fly the route on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, creating a perfect schedule for a weekend getaway.

Good luck... Southwest will just crush them.... They already run 4 daily non-stops, plus I'm sure with this they'll lower the fairs and add flights.

Thats not how WN operates. WN won't do that unless they can make a profit doing it. They aren't AA or NW you know.

I sincerely doubt it, we coexist just fine with WN. The connection possibilities are great as well...WN doesn't have any red-eyes out of LAS.

on the LAS routes they overlap quite a bit with SW, I don't see a problem. I'm surprised it is not daily though.

Depending on the success of the route, it may go daily. I do think this was a gaping hole in the HP network so I'm glad it was added. Now if only we got a flight PHX-BNA.

I wonder what other cities will get service to LAS? Maybe MDT three times a week. I don't think the route would work on a daily basis.

I know that a good way to test a new city out of LAS is to make it a TH/FR/SU red eye for our airline, but I think they should have at least thrown in SA too, given that we are trying to identify ourselves with the NFL (even though WN got "official" status) and since there's a large group of fans from every NFL team in LAS, perhaps you could make the SA night flight work too.

I'm personally excited about it, never been to Tennessee and now I will have a reason to go.

The key will be the aircraft used - will it be an RJ or 319? *Edit - read the article and it will be a 319.

Maybe BUF, but not MDT. Too little traffic there. BUF, PVD or ALB might be possibilities down the road.

Upstate New York's cities will get service to the HP hubs well before MDT gets it. BUF/ROC/SYR/ALB were some of the larger stations in the former US-East network, with some very strong passenger numbers. The service will come when the demand is sufficient enough to warrant it. I'd expect service to the New York cities within the next few years. Once the bigger cities are connected, then maybe (and I stress maybe) smaller cities like MDT will be looked at. Perhaps US may find a niche in doing that, though only time will tell.

I can see that...especially SYR. BUF and ALB have SW and ROC has FL. SYR could use some additional service.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for MDT.

I highly doubt any of the upstate NY cities will ever get nonstop service on US to PHX or LAS, BUF is a long shot "maybe." They are just too small and too close to larger East hubs and focus cities. The E-190 is a small possibility down the road, but I'm sure corporate would rather have them running shorter and more frequent routes than doing just one or two daily near-transcons.

Will people be able to connect PIT-BNA-LAS and vice versa now that PIT-BNA is back on the schedule with 2 daily ERJs?

Why would you if PIT has two-plus daily nonstops, and you have ample access to CLT, PHL and PHX?

Well, the four daily flights are usually pretty full, making it hard to get a good fare non-stop from Pittsburgh. I wouldn't go to PHL or CLT to get to LAS from PIT either, so that leaves PHX for me!

I was just asking, you could have said you didn't really know...hahaha.

I agree with the lack of demand for a daily to LAS



I know that SA)">NW has service to LAS from GRR, and it was recently taken off the red-eye status.

SA)">NW 324: Leave GRR 1540, Arrive LAS 1645 SA) and Rheintalflug (Austria)">WE/TH/SA/SU
SA)">NW 323: Leave LAS 0800, Arrive GRR 1438 SA) and Rheintalflug (Austria)">WE/TH/SA/SU

Most of the time, the route is served by a 319, sometimes a 320, so it must be doing well...

I don't see any reason why not, in fact the website seems to work along those lines...giving the option to connect interline at an outstation instead of making you route through hubs.

If only the employee travel center let us list that way as well  Yeah sure

I respectfully disagree. Other than a lone CR7 to DFW, SYR and ROC have no service to the west. LAS would be a nice fit from both cities, as there will be both O&D and many connections to California and the rest of the coast. I don't think the E190 has the legs to make it non-stop, either- especially westbound. SYR was US-East's 9th largest station before the merger, and US still has quite a hold on the Upstate NY market- people will fly them, and people need to go west. I think that a red-eye flight from LAS to both SYR and ROC would be quite a nice compliment to the already extensive schedules from both cities. ALB and BUF both have WN, and the market isn't strong enough to support 2 carriers to LAS.

I can't figure this out......the flight times don't make sense.... anyone else notice a problem?

Flight details are as follows:

Las Vegas to Nashville* Nashville to Las Vegas*
Flight Departs Arrives Flight Departs Arrives
726 11:50 p.m. 5:24 a.m. 727 9:00 p.m. 10:55 p.m.

*Flights operate Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays only

So for examply the Sunday night LAS-BNA flight arrives at 524 on Monday morning.... but there's no return to LAS until Thursday.... like Friday nights LAS-BNA flight arrives on Saturday morning but doesn't leave till Sunday... so this plane has to go somewhere! Its a 124 seat A319 so that means US-West... SO where does this plane come from or go to? Is there a PHX-BNA announcement coming soon?

Your thinking too hard. On those days they also run an extra flight from CLT,DCA, PHL or some other city to match those extra flights. Simple

Well, find me a CLT/PHL/PIT/DCA/BWI-BNA flight on those days using an A319 and I'll buy the "simple" thing.

It doesn't even have to be an America West A319....

No it's operated by US East metal...it's their flight number. All the 319's are being reconfigured to 12/112 capacity. As far as were the plane will come from, I have no idea. I imagine our route planners know the answer to that!

Then why are you yakking about something you admittedly don't care about, and know nothing about? What you say is ridiculously unsubstantiated.

For the record, I'll ask my friend in Routing and see what he can dig up.

Well, for the record.... I did spend quite a bit of time on US Airways website yesterday. I checked for flights from PHL, PIT, BWI, BOS, CLT, RDU, pretty much anywhere US might fly a plane from, short of checking ANC-BNA to see if they're going to get it from there. The answer just isn't there yet. So instead of getting all cocky and not willing to spend a few minutes to back up your answer, next time I ask a question you don't have the answer too, keep your arrogance bottled up and don't waste your keystrokes typing it. Attitudes like yours are why a lot of new people don't like to ask questions.
