If alternative metropolitan airports in the major U.S. markets (like PBI to MIA/FLL, BWI to IAD, PVD to BOS, HOU to IAH, ONT/SNA to LAX, OAK/SJC to SFO) have been quite unsuccessful trying to woo AV and CM to fly to their airports, chances are MKE would also have a hard time trying to do so.

IMHO: CM most likely won't want to split its capacity between SFO and SJC. Same for LAX and SNA/ONT. CM to SEA may be doable with B737MAX, so it might happen within 2 years (my guess). CM to PDX, in the very long term perhaps. As for South America - SFO, at this point in time and given the existing ...Jump to post
Would making the curfew time night-time shorter make any difference giving YYZ some extra capacity slack? As far as I know, Toronto does have another airport, it's YHM. A better link (rail link that's) to Toronto proper and jetways might make that airport more appealing to YYZ passengers, specially ...Jump to post
One of the major issues with a long-range B737 MAX will be where the auxiliary fuel tanks would go. There has been developments on other earlier B737 versions as of where those fuel tanks where placed without tanking too much from the baggage/cargo area. IMHO, the day Boeing develops a 5250nm range,...Jump to post
In Colombia IB is in a position to be what TP is to Brazil. Not only BOG, CLO, MDE and CTG easily support MAD flights but even ADZ, BAQ, PEI, BGA and perhaps CUC might be in a position to support some level of service to MAD.

There are routes which might demand some day-time between U.S and Brazil/Argentina (perhaps only seasonal December-January):
The only U.S. airport which still allows International to international T.W.O.V. is ANC. Doubtful if anyone takes advantage of it over-there these days. So if one airport want to be TWOV , what should the operator do? The reason why only ANC allows it had something to do with the fact that it used ...Jump to post
As much as I'd love to see something more interesting like CDG or AMS, even as a DEN homer, I feel like FRA, MUC, or ZRH on a 788 are much more likely.

With A3 current fleet, DLA, LOS, ABJ are within range. However, A3 would have to rely on connecting traffic as probably ATH O/D for those African destinations might by minimal at best.

Why's BRU so underserved go major US hubs? How about because BRU no longer is the same big attractive hub it was when it had Sabena?

Not sure how soon but most likely from either CPH or ARN.
I wouldn't be surprised also that then the other flight could get a flight to the Americas. Local authorities in BCN are obsessed to promote the airport for 5th freedom flights (like the failed BCN-MEX with Aeromexico and then Emirates) so maybe they could think to link it to a Latin American desti...Jump to post
I dont think ADD-BCN/MAD-IAH would be a terrible idea. Ehh...I would prefer the rumored ADD-ACC-IAH route, that way IAH gets back into the ‘Six Continent Club’.

A few years ago I started a thread about how UA was abusing the 757 on TATL routes over the winter months. For example, 60% of all TXL-EWR flights diverted that winter.

I wonder if AV would ever consider starting MGA-JFK. I think Managua-New York has enough demand for maybe 3x-4x flights a week.

IMHO, Before or while opening new U.S. destinations, CM would need to increase frequencies to MIA, FLL (almost up to double daily), TPA, MSY, LAS, ORD (seasonal red-eyes) and BOS (seasonal red eyes).

Two Bajan pilots. That is interesting. I wonder how they ended up there. If the first outbound was full that means that Bajans are also using the flight.

If a country holds 5th liberty rights which allows it to fly between airport A to airport B overflying its hub, and that airline feels that if it adds a dedicated P2P flight will free lots of seats from its hub flights, then it's understandable the point of P2P.
