Re: Birmingham Aviation Thread - 2019

Since when did they fly BHM-MSP and with what aircraft?


I don't know all of the details, but I flew Delta from BHM to MSP on the way to YYC in the summer of 2013 on an E-175.

Re: WS Announces YYC-ATL, YYZ-BCN, YYT-FLL

I'm in BHM, and this ATL-YYC will help out a lot on my two to three annual trips to YYC and YEG. The only current Delta/West Jet options involve connecting in both LGA and YYZ (or occasionally ATL and YYZ) leading to 12+ hour travel times, frequent delays, and clearing immigration in Toronto. Ugh.
