Because they would be flying IFR, they would just talk to whichever Center or Approach that was controlling the airspace and they’d clear them for the approach.

On another thread, it was announced AA is starting Saturday MIA-PWM-MIA. Good for PWM, but I hate all these Saturday or Sun only, and seasonal only new routes to PWM.

- MIA-PWM Saturday-only E-175 Frontier is doing PWM-MCO non-stops, daily in February if you want to believe it. IIRC that's an old AirTran (or was it B6?) route. Maybe AA can be successful to MIA Sat-only. A ploy for cruise traffic? :( It was a Air Tran, JetBlue and Southwest route at different tim...Jump to post

A great portion of the USPS freight is carried on the FedEx plane anyway due to the postal contract.

quote="jetblueguy22"] Portland, Maine gets a FedEx A300, which is more plane than that station needs (I think). So when it comes south near places like MHT, BOS, BDL, PIT, etc. it can drop into any of them and handle a need at any of those places. Not sure if that PWM plane is a ‘sweep’ fl...Jump to post
Atlantic Coast Airlines I think was also in business at the time flying for DL around the northeast, Fairchild Dornier 328 jets too, right? Maybe that was later?

I was a ramp agent at PWM 20 years ago when the -88 was the only plane DL flew to our station. I think I've probably loaded and serviced every one of the MD-88 at one point, and flown on many, too. Tomorrow will be a sad day. There will no longer be any of the classic jets I grew up with. Just 737, ...Jump to post
Not sure I can understand why you think an airline doing anything they can during a crisis to generate any revenue is odd. There is a lack of belly freight space with all of the cancellations that have taken place. As result all of the airlines are vying for any cargo contracts they can get to help...Jump to post
After 40 years observing PWM traffic, this is the first time I’ve seen a heavy departure off the secondary RWY 36/18. Just wanted to share to the locals reading this thread. Very interesting and surprising, I assume 11/29 was closed or wind was very strong out of the North? I think I actually heard...Jump to post
Cargo ops. All cargo, no passengers? COVOID related cargo? DL on ORD-FRA is kind of odd. Especially with the 777LR. I figured it might be cargo or military movement.

Kind of odd flight enroute to PWM. Thought it was a Flightaware glitch until it got airborne.
Anybody at PWM know the reason for this one?

I don’t think MCO was ever technically a DL hub, was it? Maybe a focus city in the early to mid 1990s? Even had a significant presence, perhaps the dominant carrier, during the mid 1980s when DL became the official airline of Walt Disney World. (After Eastern was) I think DL was the dominant carrier...Jump to post

I was in Hawaii two weeks ago trying to get back to the East Coast. Was worried my existing flight night get canceled and was researching other options. Found KOA-BOS via HNL on Hawaiian, with two day advance for $140 one way.
Frontier has been flying MCO-PWM for $15 one-way last week.

I believe F9 is one of if not the most cash profitable airlines of all the US Airlines. I am no expert but I think F9 will survive this and might actually recoup pax faster than other airlines will.

SAN does have an ILS. Its ILS Rwy 09. For 27 it’s just an RNAV and LOC. For Rwy 27, the main obstacle preventing 27 from having an ILS approach and causing the displaced threshold is the Laurel Street Parking garage as well as the terrain immediately to the north and east. For an A320 the mechanics...Jump to post
There’s no way you’d get an ILS on 27, too many obstacles and terrain. There are waivers for the buildings especially the famous parking garage on the LOC now.

I recently was surprised learn that there’s no ILS Approach at SAN airport, and, that it’s a Non-Precision approach. (I was ignorant and thought there was ILS and Localizer at any major airport.

The only thing that can set off a bodyscanner is metal, and underwear is very unlikely to contain metal. It's certainly visible, but can't be the cause.
