Seem like June 27th is only available for AUS-SAT bookable route. I was hoping this is daily route.... I did see that too. I tried seeing if you could do AUS-SAT on SY and then come back to Austin on Amtrak but the times just don't line up. Looks like Sun Country is flying this route a few days in ...Jump to post

Good morning enilria and thanks for the hard work. DL’s early June cuts on coastal hubs + focus cities. In May they made another cut closer in. Again, SEA has far away the most service with LAX trailing quite a bit. I think it’s clear at this point DL is fully intend on fighting it out at AS and ge...Jump to post
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Sun Country (SY). They appear to have suspended all operations at MSN. The new service they announced (e.g. MSN-PDX) isn't happening, and all of their already scheduled flights have been cancelled.

Wish they had to give the government every share they purchased through buybacks since the AA/US merger. Why? Those shares are retired. We know the shares are retired; so it's a mute point. However, rajincajun01 most likely meant that AA (and the others as well) should give to the government that's...Jump to post

Sun Country begins freighter flights next month. Receiving a fleet of 10 Boeing 737-800BCF. They are being mod in China. I don't think they will get any before mid to late summer.

I've heard the rumor that VS is interested in SAN and AUS, BA is doing quite well on these two routes and I believe there's a room for VS to step in. If it’s Austin, that’ll be pretty insane.

I've hoped for a few years to see AS jump in but have given up. They don't seem the least bit interested and have had opportunities but remained on the sidelines. (When they pulled SFO-RDU just last August, why couldn't they have just moved the plane down the coast and started SAN-RDU instead? I'm ...Jump to post
Any chance AS could restart PDX-DEN and SFO-DEN? As a former AS agent in DEN, unlikely. SFO won’t happen with UA doing 12x daily, including a couple widebodies. PDX was close to happening on E175 about two years ago, but was pulled just before being announced. DEN-ANC would be a great addition for ...Jump to post
[twoid][/twoid] Is AS starting PDX-PIT? I saw a couple of social media posts from AS about new nonstop service but can’t find any flights, nor a press release. Social media team jump the gun a bit? They've said that PDX is primed for a lot of growth in the near future. Wouldn't be surprised! They ju...Jump to post
If the LF's are as good as last year... High LFs don’t mean a flight is profitable. You can fill the plane at $200 fares and still lose money. I agree that the addition of KL to AMS and DI to CDG is probably more than the market can absorb. I tend to think DI will be the first to go and the LHR FRA...Jump to post
I’m going to go out on a limb and unless there is an economic downturn nationally I expect TPAC by 2023. The TATL traffic has just been expanding so fast I think someone will give it a try.

Gate 12 is finally open so now all new gates as a part of the eastern terminal extension is complete! Delta for 7 and JetBlue for 12?

So what is happening with the B6 gates and does this mean NK has 2 gates? B6 only uses one gate except during irregular ops. AA will take B6’s current gate. B6 will move to 12.

With so many flights to AUS, may be one of them may consider SAT now (DY or BA to London). BA to LHR may work. Doubtful. Why cannibalize yourself and spend so much extra in costs to add another station that is so close to an existing one? It is cheaper for the carriers to grow and become daily (exc...Jump to post

It's a seasonal suspension, the flight is available for booking from 4/22 next year.
Note that was a response to previous message that DL can push BA off LHR. LHR has more O&D than CDG and AMS. So if they fly to both places, clearly CDG and AMS flight would be filling more of its cabins with connection itineraries, which are generally lower yielding than direct itineraries.
