Re: Why no second commercial airport for Atlanta?

Allegiant is more likely to add ATL as a destination hub/focus city than it is to start service at LZU or elsewhere as a spoke. See G4 at BNA, SFO, LAX. The Allegiant business model has evolved considerably from what it was just ten years ago as a purely small town to vacation destinations, which ba...

Re: Why no second commercial airport for Atlanta?

Thinking more along the lines of a Skybus type operation, or at least just Allegiant, how about AHN? Doesn’t do anything for Cobb, but it does for Gwinnett.

Re: Why no second commercial airport for Atlanta?

Atlanta has no need for a second airport. Unlike most cities, ATL is very close to the central business district. In current conditions, it’s a 15 minute drive. It is also easily accessible by transit, and has a station at the airport. New capacity is being added with the 5 additional gates on Conc...

Historical ops in HKG

I've recently become curious about the history of Hong Kong and Macau. HKG has its own major airline in CX. What sort of operations did BA, BOAC, etc. maintain in Hong Kong prior to the handover to China in 1997? Was it a meaningful hub? Did TP (TAP Portugal) have any operations at Macau prior to 19...

Re: Boeing announces first annual net loss since 1997

I agree with not rebranding it. Rebranding it in my opinion will make the public trust it less. Trying to rebrand the aircraft can be viewed as a cover up by some and that can make it even harder to regain trust at that point. Rebranding worked out great for ValuJet after the media firestorm.
