Re: OAG Changes 2/2/2020:AM Adds DEN-MEX; UA JAN-ORD Back In,MFR-ORD Out,PAE-SFO Out;9K Adds HTO,NYS;China Drops

Regarding enilria’s comments about PAE becoming an AS only airport, keep in mind WN wanted in. If UA don’t find a quick use for these slots, me thinks WN will want ‘em...assuming they can find the aircraft at present. Incorrect, WN was in and they "cancelled" the service before it started...

Re: OAG Changes 2/2/2020:AM Adds DEN-MEX; UA JAN-ORD Back In,MFR-ORD Out,PAE-SFO Out;9K Adds HTO,NYS;China Drops

With UA pulling SFO flights, and AS tinkering with schedules and routes, makes me wonder how PAE is doing in general. Anyone have any traffic stats? I think loads are ok, but low yield on an RJ is also bad. The average load since launch had been 60% in T100. The latest month of data (Oct) was only ...

Re: BOS airline growth

BOS is similar to LAX in that it’s one of the largest and most fragmented markets in the country (I believe BOS is the 2nd largest after LA). This thread is about BOS expansion, and the complexities associated with it: . BOS is no where near #2 in market sizes after LAX (~9th in the US I believe) D...

Re: UA to Potentially Gain 24 of 39 New DEN Gates

Here's the problem. UA says they are going to 900 flights per day. WN says they are going to what? 400+? Frontier says 150+? Not happening. They would pass ORD/ATL. I don't see it. Also, they could just get bigger planes and save themselves from that and also have lower costs. If you look at ATL an...

Re: OAG Changes 1/26/2020:UA Cuts IAH-PBI,JAN-ORD;Adds ORD-MFR;NK Cuts JAX-DTW

I doubt that much of the traffic targeted other than maybe pacific is connecting. Surely there must be plenty of O/D traffic between these two major cities. If the flights were so horrific why then increase to 4 and on larger equipment to boot? They have actually a decent amount of flights into ATL...
