Outside of gaining more PAX room, airfield/apron wise are they gaining any gates with any of this expansion? Or are they just getting the gates to be on the 2nd floor and more accessible to the mainline AC? Can't really tell from any of the renderings or plans if they are actually adding a gate or ...Jump to post
Here's some new updates on the Terminal Improvement Project at BTV. Construction photos, video, and a rendering showing the upgraded Gate 12. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/7-upgrades-worth-waiting-for-at-burlington-international-airport/Content?oid=35353371 Curious about when these projects a...Jump to post
This is inexplicable; If FR24 was projecting the flight path (after the transponder was shut off?) why would FR24 have it make a 20° left turn at that point? At the time it was over Crimea, it was a normal line, not a black dashed line. I don't think it was extrapolating from the last course; I thi...Jump to post
There is also a Russian air force IL-62MK flying over the eastern Black Sea possibly to Crimea. Not seen that as visible before. https://fr24.com/2ba88079 Yea, odd flight path for that one too. The Silk Way 747 continues on. He was 200 miles north of the test if the traffic flow. On my FR24 it show...Jump to post
Correct me if i'm wrong...But it seems like UA isn't bringing back any of the PWM-Midwest CRJ-550 routes introduced last year. As far as I can tell, none of those routes performed particularly well. It seemed like PWM was saturated with new routes last summer, probably trying to catch the COVID-fue...Jump to post
A little while back there was talk of BTV adding a link to BOS- it was speculated to be either B6 or DL. Is this still a possibility or is it dead? DL added BGR out of BOS and they have the regional jets so I could see them adding over B6 if this is still on the table. I remember this rumor. I wond...Jump to post
This is a very good question. I'm still surprised at the lack of Florida flights so your thinking makes a lot of sense here. I'd wonder if Frontier would consider upping frequency to MCO, but they've got Spirit and JetBlue to deal with at the moment. I'm still a Southwest fan but we've been through...Jump to post
I won’t complain about having another daily connection option out of BTV, but the outbound timing (arrival into DFW at 9:45pm) is not great for connections to a lot of places. Wish they revisit the timing at some point. Yeah the outbound to DFW is a bit tight for on-going connections. Probably miss...Jump to post
AA goes daily on BTV-DFW this fall. A nice jump from the Saturday only flight. Flight must be doing well. That's truly encouraging news. Are they still flying regional aircraft then or any mainline upgrades? It's a long way on a E175. Texas is such a booming market I was hoping this would happen. L...Jump to post
I've seen some French KC135 (usually callsign Total) from Istres, German A400M and RAF MRTTs from Cyprus doing tanker tracks over Romania and NATO and RAF MRTTs over Poland, too. Interesting, with the deliveries of MRTT’s to the French AF, this will likely be one of the last operations of the veter...Jump to post

ACK is fine; however, not sure if Nantucketers would be pleased with more people coming to “their island” [100 vs. 140.] The 223 is too heavy for MVY and HYA, so they’ll have to figure something out. Therefore, it’s evident that B6 needs 221s. Just 20 fewer seats. There is no plan for B6 to take an...Jump to post
Looks like first day of UA flying mainline to all 3 airports, EWR, ORD and IAD. No idea how they are going to park them at the terminal, they are all 739's. Will be 5 mainline AC on the ground in total, including DL 717 and B6 E190. That’s like murderers’ row. Impressive, especially for February, a...Jump to post

Recently heard from a jetblue employee that they said London is doing very well. Overall eyeing 26 EU markets in the future.

Out of JFK. I see 169 flights scheduled for Mar 20. That's definitely an all time high for March. It seems to me they have decided to reduce BUF to 3x, BTV/ROC to 2x and SYR to 1x out of JFK for the foreseeable future. That's a real shame. I know short haul demand is down, but these are all markets...Jump to post
Is London service sustainable? I see paltry seat maps for upcoming JFK-LGW flights. Better data would be appreciated. I don't think seat maps give the full picture.

Looking at booking UA into BTV in July/August next year but was surprised to see their limited schedules. 2x from ORD on ZW. What gives? In these covid times no schedules are even close to anything this far out. More or less a placeholder to take bookings. You will see lots of rounds of major chang...Jump to post
One TSA check point will be a huge improvement for BTV. In 2019 pre pandemic both tsa lines backed up pretty back at times.

In other news at BTV, construction has begun on the terminal integration project. So far it looks like it is all external to the current structure.

To clear thing up, I'm not saying they are being conservative with their fleet plans, but that I think they can be a little more aggressive in getting a few more aircraft in 2022.

On another note, it seems like NK is continuing to just go after WN on these Florida markets.

I always think BTV lines up better with ALB, SYR, ROC not in numbers per say but with demand, passengers, destinations other factors then with MHT, or BOS or PWM.

I respect what you're saying about BTV. I agree that 2019 was a very strong year and that airlines are going to make their decisions purely on demand.
