LH is closing PHL effective tomorrow, 10/1. There is a possibility that the station may reopen in December, but stakeholders were advised that the most likely scenario is reopening will coincide with the Summer 2021 schedule. Sucks to hear but understandable move to make With SAP providing a ton of...Jump to post
What seemingly got slid in with the recent DAB route announcements is the addition of a once-weekly PHL-PSP. Really did not see this one coming even though there have been other adds (pre-COVID) to west coast leisure destinations like EGE and BZN. On a similar note, this route is to be operated by a...Jump to post
Just got an email from American showing a new partnership with JetBlue. Anyone know the likelihood of JetBlue joining OneWorld? The email reads similar to the partnership announced between American and Alaska. They will not join OneWorld but suddenly it makes these recent B6 adds to TPA, MCO, PBI, ...Jump to post

Shame those A321Neo didn't come with IFEs. In a post COVID world, I can't imagine IFE being utilized as it's just another touch point on a perceived 'dirty' aircraft. Personally I'd feel safer with my own device. For as much as people bemoaned AA not installing IFE, looks like they saved themselves...Jump to post
It would be a huge loss of PHL didn't have any connection to the German market. While don't think LH will drop PHL, I don't think PHL will be without service to Germany if they did. I'm sure AA would see it as an opportunity, even in this market. SAP provides a huge corporate contract on this route...Jump to post
I actually think the opposite will happen and AS will keep the one flight to SEA and AA will add maybe an additional flight or two. Best case is AA flies to PDX year round now.
One TPAC flight out of SEA isn't going to stimulate that much additional demand on PHL-SEA

JAL coming to PHL would be wishlist for 2021. FI most likely will come back maybe fly later into the year if they get the Max 8 back. NK and F9 continue flighting to Florida and SJU. We could SY continue to grow with a route to PDX. AA a couple adds to leisure destinations in the U.S. and Saturday ...Jump to post
We also know that Philadelphia is the poorest major U.S. city of course the O&D numbers will be weak. Plus it doesn't help that so expensive to fly to Europe originating in PHL. The strength is the regional flights pulling through PHL. MXP I guess don't fit into PHL because well its Philly and ...Jump to post
This flight will do well and will stick for years to come and I believe it very closely resembles the PPT route. High yielding Y and C will continue to make this profitable compounded with the great costs of the 789. I work in luxury travel and we'll be selling this flight a lot. Had no doubt it wou...Jump to post
PHL looses a lot of service in March with some frequencies cut by over 50% too. I personally had a confirmed flight cancelled and the alternative was a near 3 hour difference.Jump to post
I work for a tour company selling trips to the South Pacific and heard rumor of the CHC add for some time now so it's good to see it's now official. Capacity is way up to Aus & especially NZ which is fantastic to see!Jump to post

Here's what I don't understand from the whole concept of flying to CMN to code share with AT on West Africa routes...ALL of their flights to region (DSS, LOS, NIM, ABJ, etc) depart between 10 pm and 12 am. So unless the plan on flying a daylight flight eastbound, there will be LONG connections to th...Jump to post
It's unfortunate that PHL did not get TLV. But there are nice route/frequency additions. I think there is room for two airlines on PHL-KEF. The 752 additions provide some flexibility on the departure gate that they do not have with widebodies. And just to confirm, this is a route that cannot be opp...Jump to post
Anyone know if money was thrown at this route by one of the airports (as is PIT pattern in particular) My thoughts exactly!!

The Four Seasons does not own this jet. It's owned an operated by TCS World Travel who has their own round-the-world by private jet trips themselves.

I just posted this in the Philadelphia Aviation Thread no more than two days ago as I was thinking about the destinations that WN has flown but since dropped from PHL over the years. From what I can recall, I think the below were flown but now discontinued: Manchester Boston Providence Hartford Pitt...Jump to post
Does anyone recall the number of cities flown by WN out of PHL at it's peak. Service was announced in 2003 with great fanfare but safe to say US and AA have really pushed them down to a small and niche operator. Southwest Airlines announces that Philadelphia will become our 60th destination in May 2...Jump to post
Didn't B6 only recently open up GYE from FLL the last 6 months or so? Great to see them add this route! And why does the Ecuadorian population in NYC skew towards GYE and not UIO? EQ for years bounced between UIO & GYE on their flights to JFK before recently dropping the route once the A332 left...Jump to post
Just returned from a bachelor party PHL to SJU on AA and the fares were crazy at $550+ but we were unwilling to take the F9 flights are brutal times - good to see the new flight is a bit more 'normal'
And yes this would have been a great route for B6 to enter!
On UA's current GUM to HNL route, what are the majority of the PAX? Military or connecting onwards to the mainland?Jump to post
Interesting that another small PA airport like ERI, SCE is now going to have AA service to ORD alongside UA. Like ERI, I wouldn't be surprised if this eventually spells the end for service from PHL-ABE/AVP/SCE/MDT. With short segment times to PHL, these airports are now well connected to CLT for co...Jump to post
Only last week, I got lambasted for suggesting that US Airlines are not interested in MAN. To further cement this notion, AA then scrap MAN-ORD. It’s clear that TATL traffic from MAN cannot really support year-round service with the exception of NYC and Florida. All other routes are highly seasonal...Jump to post
AA is dropping PHLFRA entirely, it's buried in the release on the chart. The article also mentions AY adding HEL-LAX on 3/31/19. Nice to see AA beating UA to the punch on ORD-ATH, and being the first airline to offer US service from BLQ and DBV. AA's seasonal Europe network from PHL is starting to ...Jump to post

CLTMUC, that replaces PHLMUC. PHLFRA gone entirely. PHLGLA cancelled, with the GLA station closing. ORDMAN gone. JFKDUB gone. JFKEDI gone. ORDNRT will be 3x per week, but as it says, will go back to daily in the summer time. http://s21.q4cdn.com/616071541/files/doc_news/2018/08/American-Airlines-Ex...Jump to post
