Looking at tomorrow, Friday 5/31. Fridays are typically a peak operation day of the week. Departures: MCO - 52 Mainline / 0 Regional ... 52 LAS - 41 Mainline / 0 Regional ... 41 SFO - 41 Mainline / 5 Regional ... 46 BOS - 83 Mainline / 6 Regional ... 89 .... quite a drop in regional from the US day...Jump to post
With AA building up DFW to 900+ flights, the surging Texas population/economy and the construction/renovation of Terminals F and C looming, AA at DFW will likely surpass DL at ATL in total number of flights. Nonetheless, ATL will still have a large lead in pax and ASM. Could DFW close the gap in to...Jump to post
I love this documentary, although ATL is still the busiest passenger airport in the world, at the time of this production it was the busiest airport in movements as well. ATL does an amazing job, and this was an excellent behind the scene look at what goes on.Jump to post
You all have a point about the banked hub, the last two American flights to Myrtle Beach was canceled because of storms. I don’t understand why it wasn’t delayed instead. I’m sure a lot of bikers and Mother’s Day moms are upset tonight.Jump to post
I just connected through ATL last week traveling from MCO, to PHL. There were plenty others making the same connection. I usually fly from EWR but WN dropped the EWR-MCO flights so O drove to PHL. ATL-EWR seems like one of the biggest opportunities for WN, the local traffic Alone could support four...Jump to post
It really weird, the more Southwest cuts Atlanta flights, the more passengers fly through the Atlanta airport. 107 million in 2018 and Atlanta is among the fastest growing metros in the US. It would be stupid of Southwest not to add flights like Atlanta to Myrtle Beach and Atlanta to Charleston, SC.Jump to post
This is a situation that the truth is probably in the middle. Not making any excuses for Frontier. I bet the FA did give a "not my job" answer/attitude I bet the customer did create a scene on purpose Both parties should have handled this better. It was pretty unacceptable for Frontier to...Jump to post
The CDA finally posted Dec 2018 (year end) traffic stats for ORD and MDW. https://www.flychicago.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/Business/FactAndFigures/AirTraffic/1218%20ORD%20SUMMARY.pdf Over 83m pax for ORD with nearly 12% y-o-y growth in internation pax alone, 2.8% growth for domestic. Just wow. .....Jump to post

Well ORD is the busiest airport by movements so they pretty much need to. Still very close to ATL but way ahead of DFW. I do believe ATL does triple parallel frequently. Also, you might find it interesting that ORD is actually capable of quad parallel landings. They don't generally do them but I ha...Jump to post
Sure it matters, but Delta’s strong profit report yesterday, makes up for this news.Jump to post
I am probably one of the Delta fans on here, but my co-workers told me here flight to Germany two to three weeks ago was on an old airplane that was full. She mention that a lot of things didn’t work, and since the flight was full, she could not switch seats. I hope whichever plane she was on is due...Jump to post

It's about time! ATL is a premier airport and deserves this kind of service. I could see them opening an A350 base in Atlanta eventually, with the aircraft making its appearance on routes like ATL-LHR, ATL-CDG, & ATL-FRA. The aircraft on ATL-LHR can go go JFK to get some A350 exposure in the JF...Jump to post
Atlanta’s large and successful African American population will definitely connect with flights to Ghana, Israel, and Nigeria. This flight will be a connecting hub just like Istanbul. This Atlantan will support it.Jump to post
Just remarkable. The busiest passenger airport - ATL carried 107 million passengers last year.
Of course Boeing will protect its interests. That is how pending litigation and product image works. I think it highly unfair and a great hasty generalization to make it an Anti- American arguement though since the aircraft is a global product. Furthermore, Boeing have friends in high places.Jump to post

Philadelphia to India..?? I think only UPenn and PSU students would want to travel to India from that region This tells me QR is doing pretty at PHL? Yields, who knows.

If you’re not from Atlanta - then you’re really not qualified to speak on this. This is much deeper than the states wanting to run the airport. Rural Georgia hillbillies and surburban whites have political been anti-Atlanta forever. Nothing new here.Jump to post
Have a couple of new updates for new flights from ATL (Per Wiki Atlanta Airport page with links attached): 1. Frontier will add their ATL-PHL route starting on 4/30/2019. 2. Spirit will add on a new route as well as a new seasonal route. Spirit will add their ATL-AUS route on 5/23/2019. While their...Jump to post
It’s currently a monopoly. Plain and simple. Something needs to be done. Not sure giving it to the state is the best option though... Woth that in mind though, the state of Georgia is much better run than the city of Atlanta... Regarding a second airport, this would be an ideal opportunity for Unit...Jump to post
Why did Eastern’s concourses at ATL — was it C or D or both? — built so much narrower than DL’s concourses A and B? Concourse C was partially built for commuter airlines. I remember ASA and Eastern's commuter airlines using the concourse for commuter flights. Concourse D was the same size as A and B.Jump to post
Eastern's Atlanta hub was awesome. I would imagine Delta would have around 700 flight and Eastern 350 if they were still around today. How do you figure THAT??? As far as I can see, Eastern never returned to JFK after the strike which is odd because they had their own terminal and a fairly large ma...Jump to post
Eastern's Atlanta hub was awesome. I would imagine Delta would have around 700 flight and Eastern 350 if they were still around today. I used to love watching the A300 from Concourse D in Atlanta takeoff. You could always tell what type of aircraft it was without seeing it, because of the A300 very ...Jump to post
Delta being growing JFK, since purchasing PanAm European routes. American purchased TWA and should have been neck and neck with Delta at JFK. Unfortunately with the US Air merger and Philadelphia hub, I guess it left no choice but to retreat at JFK.Jump to post
It always fascinates me how on thread after thread, year after year, topic after topic, airliners.net always ends up debating vulture capitalism via aviation.

Don’t feed the troll. jumbojet appears to be some sort of marketing/social media troll for DAL, as every post is a bash at xxx airline while pointing out how superior DAL is.
