Re: Coronavirus Aviation Related News & Discussion Thread - March 2020

More anecdotal loads, this time on select Delta (mostly) large RJ departures out of LGA on Monday 3/9. These are from seat maps less than 24 hours before departure so know that actual loads will likely vary a bit. But they give an idea of what a Monday out of LGA looks like 53.7%.....average for the...

Re: Midwest Express Delays Launch to Q2 of 2020

I don't think this is anything new -- they stated in mid December they anticipated having information to announce (not actually flying but information to unveil) at the end of Q1 2020 which would be the end of this month. About a week ago the Milwaukee Business Journal published a story after talkin...

Re: Coronavirus Aviation Related News & Discussion Thread - March 2020

Some additional anecdotal info from some seatmaps within a few hours of departure today (Thursday 3/5) for US carries TATL eastbound. Seatmaps can be iffy (sometimes worse than iffy), especially further out when some people have booked but not paid for a seat assignment. But a few hours before depa...

Re: Thief River Falls switching to Denver Air Connection from Boutique Air

DAC inked an interline agreement with United in Denver. No word if they will come to an agreement with Delta (or how willing they will be to agree with DAC) but it's awfully early. Thief River Falls is too small to show up in the quarterly DoT traffic table of markets with at least 10 average passen...

Re: OAG Changes 2/23/2020:AA Drops ORD-CRW/DLH,Adds Back JFK Flights;UA Drops JAN-ORD Again;UP Exits FLL-GGT

It’s not just SBN, ATW also increases to 10 flights a day, even into Nov. ATW is Air Wisconsin’S HQ and I believe a MX base as well. Doesn’t Skywest have a MX base in SBN? Maybe the increases are just a way to get more aircraft to the base? Still seems excessive even if that is part of the reason t...

Re: 35 minute layover at DCA for American Eagle connection?

BHM-DCA post generally good on-time stats. 35 minutes doesn't have a ton of cushion but you should be able to make that most of the time. If it's going to stress you out, if it's the last flight of the day, if it's mid-summer after 2pm (thunderstorm risk), if you're at risk of missing a job intervie...
