One TSA check point will be a huge improvement for BTV. In 2019 pre pandemic both tsa lines backed up pretty back at times. This will really help improve the customer experience Am I missing something? How does the integration of the two backed-up queues into one help the customer experience? Unles...Jump to post
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. I also saw an item on the construction update for the latest board meeting about a jet bridge for Gate 12. I believe that is the one used by Frontier, s...Jump to post

I would have to imagine they’ll only be using CRAF to get folks to/from AFBs or other extradition spots that folks are already heading to when they leave KBL on USAF assets (I.e. we’re not going to see Atlas flying into KBL) Edit: and if I took the 10 seconds to read the articles just posted, that’...Jump to post
So is the Taliban are blocking all entrances to the airport, why isn't the US shuttling US Citz from the embassy to the airport? Surely the embassy compound can be made secure short term?

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. And it would not hurt their stock prices. I'm thinking about this with the assumption that demand around rest of the wo...Jump to post
I dont mean to throw this discussion of track, but I was happening to be playing with the Delta website, and it still shows MHT as a destination, and it is on the destination map.

For those wondering bookings for the BTV-DFW flight have been excellent. Flights filled up within days of loading quickly. I am sure this helped AA decide to go for miami in winter.

On another note, it seems like NK is continuing to just go after WN on these Florida markets. As NK continues to add capacity on smaller EastCoast or middle of the country to Florida markets, what does that do to the legacy model where they rely on connection through ATL and CLT?

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.

^^ Yeah I have never understood the 1x weekly flights, same applies for WN and their Sat. or Sun. only flights.

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. I wouldn't expect them to fly half-empty mainline planes just because. I have noticed that the summer schedule brings a big boost and after you ment...Jump to post

I'd be curious to see it JetBlue would ever consider a 2-3 month run during the winter on BOS-YVR to capture ski traffic? Either way more service is a win for both the Boston area and BC.

Do you think that will replace summer service to JFK or will JetBlue serve both airports from PWM?

No, when B6 served BTV-MCO, it was always the 'next' route we all talked about about, but never materialized. Once B6 left the MCO route, FLL was pretty much out.

I've seen them switch equipment literally within 15 mins of boarding.

It might go against the conventional wisdom, but it does seem like there is at least a small group of people who have wanted this.
