https://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1383689&p=20769273#p20769273 Here is some brief information on the new bank-structure for DEN on UA. Pretty massive changes for the morning flights, evenings look pretty similar to what is currently being operated, I hope more is planned. ...Jump to post
I'm surprised the CR2 gets good performance out of ACV. For some reason I thought it would be a solid CR7/EM7 market SBA/SBP/STS/ACV all have ~6,000' runways and have CR2 service to DEN, so I wouldn't expect many problems. Might get a little weight restricted on the westbound if there's low ceiling...Jump to post
I don't think this is really new, the article states there just wasn't a written policy to agents before. Any airline would prefer to keep their passengers on their own airline, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Typically, when the reason for the delay is outside of the airline's control (WX/ATC) then...Jump to post
Interesting to see so many United Express changes so far out, not sure if there’s much to read into that or not.Jump to post
With DFW-BFL/SBA/MRY I think SBP would naturally be next. I’m kind of surprised MRY got it before SBP. Assuming these will be more Mesa CR9 routes.Jump to post
I know AS has been very frustrated by the operational difficulties of it's large SFO base and has even gone as far as diverting and bussing passengers, just to keep the operation moving. But at the same time, they have said they are looking forward to taking over all of T2 once the new T1 gates are ...Jump to post
I would not be surprised to see US-HAV shrink to HAV-MIA/FLL/TPA, and maybe JFK or EWR, plus one other legacy hub (ATL?). And probably Houston too. UA has seen success there and increased frequency since initial launch. I'm kind of surprised AA hasn't tried DFW with the endless connecting opportuni...Jump to post
Do you have figures for Easyjet? No data for Easyjet unfortunately although you can probably find some here: http://corporate.easyjet.com/~/media/Files/E/Easyjet/pdf/investors/results-centre/2018/easyjet-h1-2018-results-presentation-v3.pdf Although I did see they ranked in terms of ancillary revenu...Jump to post
Wall Street for the most part has backed off although they usually get 1 person per quarterly call to bring it up. They’ve calculated it would be about $1B in revenue, but are figuring they are getting that back in extra business by not charging...although that can’t be actually calculated. As long ...Jump to post
I wonder how well the new interline agreement with UA is doing.
All the recent new routes to PPT are probably helping (or will help) VT in general
I'm not sure if there's confusion or not, but you ALWAYS have to clear TSA after customs if you are connecting...otherwise you'd have a huge breach of security.Jump to post
I personally love DEN. Although the concourses are long (and getting longer), you can definitely move quickly and even between EVERY airline, it's very easy.Jump to post
I’ve also noticed in the past few months on UA 737s my texting via iMessage works, I also wonder if that’s some kind of test. It doesn’t work on the Airbus. I’ve had that sporadically happening on UA for years, especially on thwhen 737’s. Also, recently, my phone received a phone call over WiFi on ...Jump to post

In regards to the SNA slots the suggested allotment of seats according to the airport commission meeting can be found at the following link https://www.ocair.com/commissions/ocairportcommission/archive/2018/2018-09-05/item2.pdf The interesting part is that WN, DL and AS all requested more seats tha...Jump to post
UA has a travel waiver for 9/10-9/16 for these stations.
RDD has been wanting LAX for awhile and felt left out when ACV got it. I’m sure they’re pleased now. RDD has slowly been building up the past couple years.Jump to post
They are just changing where some of these routes make stops. UIN-ORD will become entirely non-stop instead of using CGI as a stopover. PAH-ORD will have CGI as a stopover instead on one of the trips. UA/OO is not counting on traffic between these secondary cities. They are just routing planes diffe...Jump to post
Is that WN service from PIT/IND/MDW/BWI and MKE to RSW correct? to jump from under daily or around daily to 4-6 daily seems very odd unless WN has some huge plan for this airport, which currently they aren't even that popular here. The less than daily stuff for March was due to the whole month not ...Jump to post
I've flown more than my fair share of regional flights in the western U.S. (DEN, LAX, SFO, PDX, and many points in between) on AA, AS, DL, and UA. Yes, Horizon flies the Q400s up north, and everyone now has a smattering of E175s, but a lot of regional flights here in the west are on many of the CRJ...Jump to post

Come on United, you were getting much better at eliminating 50 seaters right after Jeff left and now with Kirby at the helm it's 50 seater love all over again. If the market could support a larger aircraft it would get one... They can and most of them do, but UA is short narrowbodies and has no mor...Jump to post

I also think AS could start more service from OAK with e-jets: OAK-FAT/SBA/PSP etc. SJC would make more sense with the focus city there. Would probably capture a lot of existing traffic UA has going to SFO as those travelers are at the mercy of SFO ATC delays and UA commands a pretty high price on ...Jump to post
DL FA’s are watching domestic flying go to Connection carriers and international flying go to AF, KL, KE, VS, and other JV’s. They have no say over if or when the outsourcing of their jobs will stop — right now their only protection is contacts negotiated by unions representing other work groups th...Jump to post
Facilities are so constrained at LAX and even SFO. I could maybe see PHX on F9 or WN coming at some point and maybe WN adding LAS to match F9.
How do numbers between PBI and JAX compare? AA tried LAX-PBI for awhile but that didn't work. Even TPA struggles to hold onto many west coast non-stops.
Another post today is going over an interview where he says DL and Boeing are still great partners. There is still plenty of business for Boeing to grab in the future if they want. The A321/321NEO's pretty much cover the MD's getting retired. The A359/330NEO will replace some but nowhere near all of...Jump to post
A huge part of Delta's revenue advantage is Fortress ATL. They have such a high % of flying in that one HUB UA and AA are much more spread out over numerous hubs with varying degrees of competition that Delta just does not see at ATL. Seems like I read a Forbes article that delta has a monopoly on ...Jump to post
Quite a few adds for AA at LAX. Seems like lately they’ve been doing more cutting and right sizing, so it’s a nice change.Jump to post
If you’re referring to more recently... WN is huge and continues to fight to keep its West coast share. With the merger of AS/VX they are trying to combine the power of both names and both networks to make inroads into WN’a dominance. That has caused a fare war and a lot of capacity to be deployed. ...Jump to post
SkyWest also had a systemwide outage this morning that really backed things up. Gates were packed at the SkyWest heavy hubs like SFOJump to post
