According to this it was HPT ACC testing on June 2 (and no, I don’t know what that means but I’m sure someone on here does).

SFO-RDU probably has the chops but I agree that some of the markets are less likely. I just don't see a fifty plane fleet.

Pratt and Whitney recently announced a thrust bump on the PW1500G to introduce a 35,000-lb thrust variant, designed for hot and high airports.

I can't see B6 doing BUF-SFO. i took a look at PDEW numbers. It's a lot lower than BUF-LA area. If anyone does it, it would have to be UA. Don't forget induced demand by a non stop.

What's interesting to me about the newly opened The Club at BUF, they built it rather large and with showers. Having a good lounge is key to transatlantic service.

DL usually stops this route in JAN and FEB before resuming in MAR. I guess this schedule update means they're adding DEC to the hiatus as well.

A big part of UA's strategy at IAD is increasing connections. They want to have less connections at EWR and more at IAD. This of course while also appealing to local traffic in the DC metro area. They've actually cut a bunch of regional routes from EWR and switched them to IAD. AVL, AVP, CHA, ELM, ...Jump to post

Realistically, they’re probably just putting the swoopy 787 livery on everything.
Not my work, but:
DL already flies BOS-BUF. But in general yes I agree. Three carriers flying BOS-ROC would be overkill for a market that size. If DL adds it I imagine AA would promptly pull out. BOS-BUF might be the worst performing route in their entire network. I'm not sure how much longer that route lasts. Remem...Jump to post
CF34-8 vs CF34-10?
The -10 was developed specifically for the 190, 195, and lineage and has a very different architecture. It's not unheard of for variants of engines to be significantly less reliable. In addition, the -8 being more widely adopted, the maintenance and parts may be cheaper.
AA updated their May schedule today. ROC loses mainline (again). A319 frequencies from ROC-CLT and ROC-PHL are gone. ROC-CLT goes back to 4x CRJ900 (not even the Embraers). ROC-PHL 4x ERJ-145 and 1x EMB175. Though DCA gains a EMB175 frequency (3 to 4 total). BOS and ORD remain unchanged. Very disap...Jump to post
