Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) Aviation Thread - 2021

I believe UA ran some 737-800's and maybe A319 here and there to IAD at the peak of 2019, when we were seeing mainline AC to ATL, DEN, ORD, EWR, IAD, CLT, and PHL Has US/AA really flown mainline BTV-CLT? My impression was that they remained steadfastly RJ even when UA did their mainline 'experiment...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) Aviation Thread - 2021

BTV at the time also had a robust collection of UA flights to ORD, largely 727-200s. Some people did drive to MHT in those days to fly WN, but I think CO, UA, NW, and US held their own pretty well at BTV. It was UA that I drove to MHT to fly twice. The problem was not the service but the price. As ...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) Aviation Thread - 2021

Hello, all. I have been flying out of MHT my entire life, and I remember in the peak in 2005, i flew on a 757 to ORD. What happened to UA at MHT, and will they increase ops in the future? Thank you! Part of it is probably leaking passengers to BTV. 10 or 15 years ago fares at BTV were high enough t...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) Aviation Thread - 2021

I'd be worried that the A220 is going to be too much airplane for market like BTV and PWM once the E190 goes away. My guess is that something between 9 seats (Cape Air) and 140 Seats (A220) will emerge to provide good markets like BTV and PWM with a reliable right sized fit to serve the B6 network....

Help those people, yes, but at what cost to B6? I think you'd risk cannibalising BTV and to a lesser extent BOS... Obviously BOS is much less at risk, but it might chip away at the margins. BTV, though--different story. B6 has been struggling in BTV since the early 2010s. First it was 4x daily to 3...

Thankfully, MEM has not had the same treatment yet, and all the FedEx planes are visible packing the ramp. I was disappointed today trying to view the SDF UPS hub.


They are gone on Maps in Windows.
