Getting BLI used to handling the 757's for when G4 starts Hawaii services from there.

What do you think AS will do if G4 starts BLI-HNL? Will the concede the route the G4 or dig their heels in deep and try to beat G4 on the route?

It's been so long ago- someone help me out and refresh my memory...

Didn't G4 announce that they were gonna fly to HNL before AS did?


I do remember that the Port of Bellingham got funding for the runway improvements in hopes of seeing 757s one day~ and that those improvements happened way back in 2010!!!

I think G4's services will just attract more Canadians across the border and stimulate traffic on the route. AS can certainly afford to get into a pissing match if they wanted to, but as AS is only interested in yields around 10%, it wouldn't last long if it kept loosing money.

Doesn't sound like something I've heard, but either way, there is no "dibs" in flying, G4 took a lot longer to arrive at the party, so I guess the best eats have already been taken.

Well, I know that. I was just saying (if I remembered right) that AS took the bait after G4 annouced that they would do the route. No harm, no foul.
One thing is for sure- based on that parking lot- whoever is flying to wherever is really packin' 'em in!!!
The lots are always filled to the max. And it always seems like 75% of the plates are from BC.


Speaking of being at BLI today- I was- TWICE!!!
The first time was a check to see if I had missed the 757,
the second time was to SEE the 757.
Sorry- I did not have my camera.
