I think a dark horse for a couple LGB slots might be Eastern. Seems like they could try something out of JFK.

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2020

You're right SANFan, the PHX flights are fine with AA taking care of the OW offerings. Hopefully the smaller adds by AS equates to more future international flights making SAN a viable connecting option to the surrounding west. QF comes to mind. How is the 787-9 performance out of SAN on a lengthy t...

Re: Western Airlines questions

Delta was the airline from the Caribbean to California in the 60's and 70's. They had a flight from SJU-MBJ-MSY-LAX-SAN arriving at SAN at 3:30pm. I'd watch that beautiful DC-8 come in over my house every day as soon as school was out at three.

As for BA, I can see why PHX service will return before SAN simply because PHX is more of a Winter destination and can absorb SAN traffic with AA One World connecting flights.

A great gimmick for WN would be a transcon shuttle operating every two hours throughout the day from LGB-MDW-LGA and then alternate with BUR every two hours BUR-MDW-LGA (which would give them an hourly shuttle between MDW-LGA). Just a thought.
