BLR has been rumored for years
Let’s get their current Indian stuff restarted in Sept before we got wild on a.net
Reading the India start/restart threads got me thinking These routes are supposedly very profitable for UA. Same market essentially, but DL isnt very interested in NRT HND China and is just starting to put its toe in India. Historically, CO had to start these routes from EWR if they wanted to serve ...Jump to post

What a fiasco for Boeing.
How long can this go on before this really becomes an issue for them?
In the past, helicopter service has not been successful in NYC to the airports However, traffic has gotten SO bad around the 5 boros as population has exploded since 2000 and virtually nothing has been done to the infrastructure. We are at the breaking point with round the traffic on most of the Que...Jump to post
I hope its BOS!
B6 made such a show of support for EK when they were flying these types of routes.
I think it is only appropriate that B6 gets to compete against them BOS Europe.
B6 has 178 slots or so
They rarely run 178 flights
Just throwing that out there
Look at the numbers! How much more evidence do you want? It isnt a claim...it is a HARD NUMBER reality The new routes they added and will continue to add are tough routes for B6. The easy stuff is gone. They are and will continue to bleed money on these types of routes. So what should JetBlue do? C...Jump to post

Can you show me exactly where B6 is “bleeding money”? DFW HOU ATL MSP. Which route you want to talk about? Ok, well, the bottom line is you infer that B6 is bleeding money as a whole in BOS, then you narrow it down to 4 routes. Which is it? Sadly it is not just the 4 routes The easy stuff was start...Jump to post
The YOY Q1 comparison is off because the Easter/Passover week moved to Q2 this year. AA is a mess at JFK. Too much capacity at BOS As for B6 going north of 200 flights in BOS...they are bleeding money and it isnt a smart war. I believe B6 and DL will need to learn to coexist like they do in JFK and...Jump to post

I don’t care if he works for the Port Authority or not. It is his agency because he is their biggest fanboy and defender on this site. A lot of people have suspected that I work for Delta or JetBlue for the same reasons. It comes with the territory I guess A third parallel runway at Newark is ridicu...Jump to post
Regarding Terminal B, the Port Authority announced they’re beginning the planning for replacing Terminal B with a new Terminal 2. https://corpinfo.panynj.gov/documents/Public-Process-Capital-Plan-Reassessment/ Moving all the terminals further West makes way for a new third parallel runway as was ou...Jump to post
When I lived in Florida in the late 90s, a big traffic problem on the interstate highways was traffic going very fast, losing control, crossing a narrow grassy median, and hitting head on traffic going in the opposite direction. There was a lot of discussion on what could be done to prevent it. You ...Jump to post

Here come the AA transcon cuts at JFK!
DCA BOS 15 daily on a LCC is a ludicrous waste of slots.
I will be THAT guy on this thread: -Whenever I flew CLT, it was full -Whenever I non revved to CLT, I was in the JS -Whenever I purchased a ticket to avoid JS, JFK CLT was more expensive than BOS CLT If they werent making money on this route, they were doing something very wrong One other thing to n...Jump to post
I would give a year before JFK-MBJ/SJO/LIR get canceled. Now there are 4 airlines on JFK-SJO and AA no longer has US point of sale. These new routes appear to be more slot squatting by AA. We shall see. That is a RIDICULOUS statement. 1500 mile routes arent slot squatting. 5 daily RJs to RIC is slo...Jump to post
JFK will get more Europe too. Probably ATH and a second Paris. They just cut the second CDG. Being all 777 to Europe now may be too much capacity for them. AA has been gradually shrinking at JFK for years. they made a huge mistake this June by essentially removing themselves from the Transcon marke...Jump to post
JFK-CPH/ARN being cutsurprises me as those were their first routes to the U.S and are known very well both in Scandinavia. Flew both routes numerous times too and were always full (in the winter). It is ironic given their name. Also, SAS flies to EWR not JFK. Either way, this is a rearrangement of ...Jump to post

AA LGA-RIC DEC 3>4 JAN 3>6 FEB 3>5 MAR 3>6 This feels mostly like AA parking a few LGA slots for the winter in a relatively short market. O&D (NYC-RIC) is maybe 300 PDEW in summer and DL has half of it. Just as with US before the LGA/DCA slot swap with DL, DoUgIe and AA management d...Jump to post
Re AA at JFK: Relax! They are using the slots to RIC! They got this...dont worry. Beyond that, B6 just handed a huge win to AA at JFK by cutting CLT. That was a route that US (and AA) didnt even serve when B6 started CLT over a decade ago. AA went multiple daily mainline and handed B6 a huge butt wh...Jump to post
“Summer in the City” by the Lovin’ Spoonful CO DC-10 EWR-FCO in June 1999. My first trip to Europe with my school. I was excited and a bit nervous.

You experience in STL masked what was happening with TWA. TW was a disaster. JFK was being slashed rapidly. They tried little focus cities in LA and SJU. They were down to two cities in Europe and TLV/CAI The only reason STL was doing so well is they brought any remaining resources home to that base...Jump to post
I would imagine JFK RDU ORD SAV CHS and ATL are all on the chopping block going forward. Just following their trends. JFK was never an airport for in perimeter flying that goes to LGA. B6 gave it a years long shot...it appears they are throwing in the towel for that kind of JFK flying. The Upstate ...Jump to post
“That's the last impact of DL's BOS buildup. JFK is now far and away B6's cash cow. And they are not making decisions based on what will build up their position in NYC, but on short term margin gains.”
That is the most intelligent analysis in this 12 page thread.
Congratulations sir...you get it!

A good round up of B6 currently: Relevant in BOS but under attack by DL in a medium-sized market Are you saying BOS is a medium-sized market? In domestic O&D it's in the Top 10 and bigger than SEA, EWR or DFW (if a bit behind LAS/DEN/ATL). It's also a good market for range-limited narrowbodies ...Jump to post

AA LGA PHL Four flights isn’t that much... we will watch the trendline and see if it moves into a full slot squatting mode The problem with dehubbing NYC for PHL is there is broad acknowledgement that there is next to zero demand for air travel between NYC and PHL and very few flights.

Can't confirm it, but a UA pilot posted elsewhere, it was a new hire FO on his IOE. If so, thats not good for him/her. The trainee will be fine.
