Does anyone know the determination ATC makes for allowing reverse op takeoffs at SNA? I drive by SNA every morning pretty much right at 7:00 am (when curfew ends). However, once or twice a week I notice a plane (usually a UA A320 headed to Chicago - this morning it was UA flt# 230) take off using 2...Jump to post
I don't see the shrunken LGB working out well Numbers aren't that encouraging in the short term future bookings. I will be surprised if inter California last much longer into next year. But rumors did have all intra California service being cut with this announcement. Rumor has it that B6 at LAX wil...Jump to post
Sounding like UA and AS will both be having a 737-800 RON in PAE.
AS to SJC and UA to DEN.
So heard the hours of airline operations at PAE will be from 05:00-23:00 7 days a week. Each airline will be allowed 2 RON aircraft each. With first rights to gate RON aircraft going to AS and UA. UA has elected to give up it's Gate RON assignment to WN. Sounds like WN will have 05:15 to OAK and 09:...Jump to post
Having one company running all 3 airlines will probably help the flow of the operation better since you will have 3 airlines using 2 gates. it's a small terminal as a whole this eliminates the need for multiple brake rooms for each airlines staffing. Just because it's an AlaskaAir subsidiary it's re...Jump to post
All the naysayers seriously have to realize that if B6 puts it's self up for sale WN will make a huge play for them. Remember This isn't HERBS WN it's GK WN. JFK,BOS,LGA and DCA offers a Huge Revenue pool that WN doesn't have in the northeast. WN can't afford to let Competition gain that much capaci...Jump to post
I expect you will see everyone else advocating this Slot should be put up for re-Allocation. Saying AA has the monopoly on the MIA-HAV market. Flyguy Ya, but who is going to want it at this point. Other than AA in MIA, no other carrier seems to need extra capacity on a route that works, and nothing...Jump to post
Is there an agreement on curfew times/ Hours of operation for the PAE scheduled airline service?
I've said it before and I will say it again. If JetBlue is up for sale SOUTHWEST will be the ones buying them. JetBlues overall value is 75% more than what AirTran brand gave WN in Revenue synergies. With BOS,JFK,FLL,SJU, Caribbean and Additional LGA,DCA slots Theirs no way WN going to pass on it. F...Jump to post
I think DEN,LAS and PHX will be the only markets beyond California for the MAX7. While it's in the Estimated Range of the MAX7. I Don't think once you factor in full payload and western headwinds will you see that long of ETOPS flight. The MAX7 will definitely be used on South America long range fli...Jump to post
The first MAX7s will all be ETOPS birds.
The extra range and better performance will see these birds connecting DEN,LAS,PHX and possibly BUR,SNA to Hawaii.
Also these aircraft will give WN the ability to possibly do some service to Western Europe from BWI.
Yes, 24 flights thru 2 gates is definitely going to be tight. It can certainly be done if everything is always on time and the weather is clear and beautiful in the Seattle-area. That being said, good luck to the 2-gate airport operations! It's getting near and exciting; I can't wait 'til the fligh...Jump to post
Both were on the list. It appears one daily flight to SAN is missing on that schedule. Either they are waiting on it, dropping it, or it's an error. I think the second SJC flight must replace SAN. IIRC, there was only 1x SJC flight announced originally. [threeid][/threeid] I live in Mukilteo. I’m p...Jump to post

I think these threads may need to be euthanized.

Aren't they...Jump to post
MDW (ironically, which they don't fly P2P from SNA) Ironic indeed. WN has operated nonstop SNA-MDW on and off for years - seemingly whenever the county comes up with a slot for them to use. I believe this route is currently operated "seasonally". WN did just cut all SNA-SFO service, thoug...Jump to post
Speaking of WN does anyone know what time slot for the extra Saturday only TPA service will be?
Will it be the same slotted time DL had?
Thanks in advance.

In regards to FLL let's not forget They will be temporary down to one Runway anyway in the spring 2019.
The last few schedule extensions have been busts, it seems like WN doesn't want to add anything right now other than Hawaii. Sources say WN has 14 idle NG ETOPS birds from the October-April Schedule. Their just waiting on the FAA for Hawaii. I expect tomorrow release will have a few gaps in it for ...Jump to post
Best JAX +30%; Didn't realize that??? What did they add? They got FLL back (3x/day). A definite bright spot after losing well over half their flights during the previous ten years. The new weekday JAX-DAL coming in 2019 will help too. Weekday JAX departures (includes FL prior to consoliation) 2008....Jump to post
LGB is waiting on JetBlues official surrender of slots. Rumor have the LGB slots will be given out by next week. WN is likely to add LGB-PHX and LGB-SJC nonstop service if WN can acquire enough slots at LGB. If WN gained the 6 other slots I think 4 SJC and make 2 daily DEN vs any PHX. FlyguyJump to post
It's interesting, and I don't know why, but this particular WN-Sked-Extension thread has now reached 25 posts with only a couple of posts talking about what is expected or hoped to be included in the new schedule -- the whole purpose of the thread! Heck, I don't think there's been even a single (se...Jump to post
Only future withdrawals B6 has talked about was further cuts could happen at LGB by eliminating inter California markets like SJC,SMF,SFO and OAK. But if there less than daily Seasonal test are successful LGB May see those slots used for other markets. There been rumblings that they may drop LGB-OAK...Jump to post
Rumors Have that WN pushed Hawaii ground crew report dates from October 1 2018 back To April 1 2019. Hopefully this isn't true but I wouldn't be surprised either way. Flyguy I certainly can't speak for ALL Ground Crew, but I CAN confirm that as of this morning, (some) managers and rampers are still...Jump to post
WN has extended LGB extra flights 3 LAS , 2 extra SMF, and 1 Saturday/Sunday only DEN until January 31 2019. In addition WN will run 1 DEN Round Trip on Wednesday January 2 2019 This will give more people the ability to make holiday travel plans from LGB.
WN has known of this effect for some time and invested in American Trans Air to offer a way to Hawaii. Unfortunately American Trans Air went bankrupt shortly after the WN investment. Nope. WN partnered with ATA and invested in ATA in order to get some of ATA's gates at MDW and keep AirTran from get...Jump to post
Frontier Airlines added Chicago MDW back to their Route map. Been Rumored a ULCC was coming (back) to MDW. Speculation has been Allegiant Air but the way Frontier has been expanding doubling down on Chicago by adding MDW back might be a great opportunity. I can definitely see a mixture of Florida an...Jump to post
I just looked 737-7 backlog on wiki. If that is correct & SW indeed delayed their first -7 to 2023, that looks really worrying. Specially because the 150 seat segment (e.g. SW 500 737-700s) isn't very small. Boeing has some serious decision to make soon. According to Southwest’s 2018 2Q investo...Jump to post

Not surprised. One of the reasons I hardly ever fly WN is because their prices are always so much more expensive than everyone else. And on top of that I can't reserve a seat.

Yep as stated above it was basically the same thing WN been peddling so far this year. Update is no update waiting on the FAA. I wouldn't be surprised if the upcoming MX TA Vote which isn't likely to pass has something more to do with the slowness than the FAA. But that's just my speculation. While ...Jump to post
[url][/url] Hopefully, the delay is somehow related to Hawaii and/or PAE announcements and start-ups.
