I did PVD-BGO on a regular 738 and it was no problem, would it have been nicer on a bigger plane? Yes.... did I care as much since I paid $350.... no. The DY example is mixed because some things like BGO made zero sense however larger markets like DUB have shown staying power. So something like STN ...Jump to post

The Rhode Island Dominican population is around 40,00, so if 1% use the flight, that's 4,000 people on 5,600 seats so a 70% load factor right out of the gate
I know that't not how it works but it will help what should be a viable flight demographics aside.
Southern Airways Express is going top launch a few summer seasonal flights from Nantucket this summer.

The most common sense solution is for Massport to fund MBTA improvements that ehance connectivity to the airport and expand hours of operation.

Accordingly to Suncountry's website PVD-PUJ will start in November... Sat only for the first month then Wed/Sat December through April.
Still surprised no CUN but PUJ is popular for leisure and also some ethnic ties as well.
After looking through the March slides, it shows 50% of TNC trips come from the urban core... I really wish Massport would take come initiative to improve the MBTA connections. I understand its probably a political "hot potato" and messy with each being state agencies but better non-vehicl...Jump to post

AA seems to be way down for all NE airports this summer. PVD-PHL is running 6x, 3 mainline in May but 5x 1 mainline in June. BDL-PHL in June is 5x, 2 of which are 50-seaters, PWM actually has more capacity to DCA than PHL.Jump to post

BTV-PNS PDEW is so low it doesn't even make it onto the DOT city pairs report. It's hard to see how that would work.

The close in BDL cuts are most definitely related to the MAX considering the flight survived the winter and we are getting into busier seasons.

The T stands for ticking tax timebomb for Boston.

It blows my mind that WN can sustain BDL-STL but not BDL-LAS. is WN not competitive in the longer haul markets?

A crew base for 1-2 daily flights makes zero sense, and I believe they had a hard time staffing SWF too as I know they had to ground transport PVD crew there for a while.
Yes this limits operational flexibility to add new service but id rather them survive and sustain so I see this as a smart move.
