Add GCN with Boulder City down just shy 50% what has happened to Grand Canyon scenic flights? Less operators so less flights? Also like how some cities that had crap Great LaLak service now with SkyWedt crjs are doing a lot better ( BFF. LBF, LBL, PUB, PRC).Jump to post
What's interesting to me is what happens to EAS as airlines reduce and eliminate 50-seat jets in the future. Does EAS actually expand to include markets that get dropped by the legacy carriers? What happens to a market like FLO or LYH that now has only 50-seat RJ service on AA but is reasonably clo...Jump to post
Seems it's been figured out but I knew well the code WC. My first airline job was with Wien Air Alaska...a small ANC-based airline founded in 1927. I became a FA for them shortly after graduating college in 1981. Their code was WC....looks like someone is finally using it again! They ceased operati...Jump to post
BPT (Beaumont, TX) was briefly served in the early days of Southwest. I'm pretty sure BPT's opening and closing predates service to Stapleton. DET (City), and IAH are the other pre merger WN stations that have closed and never returned. SFO was dropped for a few years but has since returned. JAN (J...Jump to post

Nice decision mod. This isn’t political at all. DCa will sometimes too have diversions/temp restrictions when AF1 or other vip aircraft land at Edwards. I know someone who landed at Dulles because her dca bound CRJ couldn’t hold any longer. Most pax disembarked at IAD but those who didn’t had a sho...Jump to post
What do you think is holding OKC back from getting international flights (even if only seasonal)? It's certainly not just simply that OKC is close to DFW as SMF is close to SFO and SAT is close to IAH yet they have international services. Yet SMF and SAT serve larger markets and have a more promine...Jump to post
From LAS to SEA on Thursday and Friday; SEA to LAS on Sunday and Monday...ok...seems a little backward. Wouldn't most people go to LAS on Thurs and Fri and then return Sun and Mon? Also...only 2X weekly? With NK, AS and DL having multiple dailies...not to mention AS out of PAE, I have my doubts for...Jump to post
The BOI-ORD is following same schedule as this year. It was cut until it came back in May. Nothing different it would seld.Jump to post

Would rather have window, with option to recline. Although exit is nice if shorter trip and on aisle. Speaking on no window. Sat center seat on AirTran ATL-SEA and asked person in A if "when you got your window seat, did you expect a window?" Lol. She said yes.Jump to post
Did they announce this before now? Seems a bit quick for planning a June trip. I know a lot of TX-ASE fans in winter, but is summer a big draw for them, too? Seems if I were in Houston, especially north side, for that much I would rather go jet. Plus, my luck I would get the flight that goes HOU-DAL...Jump to post
I would try SMF before GEG.Jump to post
Nobody is flying the route currently, correct? Not that I'm aware of. I don't know if QX did the SJC-SBA route using a Q400. The last airline that I remember did that route was Pacific Coastal back in 1980's...yes, I'm aging myself. United Express did fly that route for a while in the 90s and stopp...Jump to post
They are done with commercial service. https://airlinegeeks.com/2019/05/31/via-airlines-officially-stops-commercial-routes-in-favor-of-charter-flights/ What a lousy written article. Seems Beckley moved since it WAS in West Virginia lol. Not sorry to see it end its fiasco of a scheduled operation.Jump to post
Ever? Maybe. Will or won't.Jump to post
I think this is the winner. SFO-EWR. Pax would have been on the jet for a little more than 11 hours unless they briefly deplaned at IAD before heading back for the recovery leg. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAL577/history/20190529/1440Z/KSFO/KEWR Funny that I noticed this flight on flight aw...Jump to post

Having lived in San Antonio for two years and wieked at SAT, here is what I think. Even though they beat it like a dead horse as beingvthe "7th largest city in the US", no one cares. Being big doesn't equate to worthwhile new air service that they seem to think they deserve. Area can barel...Jump to post
4B is just extending what they already do at VCT. Nothing to be excited about.
AN lowering number of flights between SVC-ABQ/PHX seemingly would be a violation of their EAS
I remember reading some years ago that in 1980ish timeframe, Zia Airlines of Albuquerque changed to Air New Mexico. Then had money problems, then businesses were seeking money from Aurways of New Mexico and a helicopter outfit named Air New Mexico thinking it was the old Zia.Jump to post
In case no one mentioned it, DL flew DFW-FRA nonstop. LOL.Jump to post
I love how this richman's shuttle has people saying how F9 etc should fly there. Never happen. And no one is going to fly ORF-ONX....
I think this may be good for what it is, and will not stimulate air traffic or deminish road traffic much if at all.
That seems to have been a Western Pacific thing. Somewhat rings a bell in my mind that they did that sort of thing. But, don't quote me lol.Jump to post

Looks like Boutique Air is changing their EAS MCE route from OAK to SMF?
Flying a red-eye LAX-PHL on F9 some years ago, I got on last and there was someone in my assigned seat. As there were 11 pax on flight, I went ahead and sat somewhere else lol.Jump to post
