B6 Operating A320's Into DCA?

Tue Jul 03, 2012 3:33 pm

Hi,

Sorry if this has been posted already, but as I was on Flight Aware I saw that B6 was and has been operating A320's into DCA for some time now does any one know if they are full as I'm flying very soon out of DCA to MCO. Also How long have they been operating or is another Flight Aware Mistake?

These are just a few! Sorry if I'm a little behind.

Yes, they have been sending them out of DCA for a couple weeks now to FLL. I believe we have 2 A320s and 1 E190 a day here. Not sure about MCO.

DCA-SJU is starting in a few weeks, and will be A320 as well

Don't forget the DC area focus shifted from IAD to DCA now. The following departures from DCA this month are A320's:

DCA-MCO FLT221
DCA-BOS FLT682
DCA-TPA FLT409
DCA-MCO FLT225
DCA-FLL FLT1483
DCA-BOS FLT692
DCA-FLL FLT1485

In August you add

DCA-SJU FLT1347


Hope that helps!

Do you think they will announce DCA as a focus city as IAD was a focus city?

Quoting SWALUV (Reply 4):

Probably not because it is a matter of obtaining slots, but it is sort of a focus city considering their focus has shifted from IAD to DCA and the airline has invested money into the slots at DCA and moved crews over from IAD. But expansion is going to be minimal because of slots.
