This article talks a bit about Delta's hub/focus city plans. TL;DR version: Nashville, San Jose and Cincinatti won't return as a hub or focus city; Raleigh, Austin, Seattle and Boston will, with schedules returning in the second half of 2021 (SEA/BOS) or as traffic returns (RDU,AUS). https://airline...Jump to post
Nonesense. The T is incompetent. Massport is risk averse and conservative. There's a big difference. Good public transit costs a lot of money. You just accused Massport of being cheap for avoiding to build a people mover :) The measly green line extension will cost well over 2 billion $. That too s...Jump to post
For those who haven't been by Logan in awhile and seen it, the New terminal E expansion is well underway. Steel framework is up, and it's really coming together. Really looking forward to the day that it opens, hopefully things will be a bit more normal by then. Also heard that a few carriers might...Jump to post
As the airlines return, I wonder what will be different about routes and frequency than pre-COVID. Domestically, I think this primarily is about B6 and DL, both in their competition with each other, but also each of them vs. AA/UA/WN. Clearly both B6 and DL will be flying flewer flights and likely t...Jump to post

As I recall USAir/Airways started off early and by the looks of the cities primarily listed, could be a hold over for something which has worked for them. Northwest, as I recall, started pretty early, too. This was my recollection too although I don’t have any evidence to support. I remember USAir ...Jump to post
My firm just announced travel bans yesterday and it interestingly includes travel to/from the countries you would expect AND attendance to external meetings that will have over 100 people (e.g. conferences) and internal meetings more than 25 people. Ban lasts through April (so far).Jump to post
Seriously is this the posters version of starting a fire?

It will be interesting to see. THey made a lot of operational moves to preserve cash through the winter. We will see if they worked.
Travel stocks are getting hammered due to Corona virus fears; that's not specific to Norwegian, but they did not need this type of event given their financials.
Morning everyone, coming live and direct from Harvest Caye, Belize... no sign of norovirus or coronavirus On our ship! Not much to report on an airline front, except for witnessing a soon to be rare sight of an AF380 banking out of MIA on its way to CDG, beautiful. I’m working on some new stats for...Jump to post

General question for the DL savants who know about JFK. I am planning to take my family: BOS-JFK-BOM with BOM being the main destination. Note that I have a 4.5 year old kid who will be about 5.3 years when he travels to BOM. I wanted to know how easy is the transfer between domestic to internation...Jump to post
Someone asked about wing clearance if multiple A330s were next to each other. Here is a 763 next to an A333 and my ride to ATL between them at Boston.
April will see the 346 show up from VS for 3 days a week (days 235)
One thing that strikes me is how much the DL/AF/VS/KL JV is building up Boston. The upgauging in LHR, CDG and AMS is pretty impressive. It will be interesting to see if DL adds other destinations, like backfilling for DY in MAD (summer seasonal) or ATH . Interesting times.Jump to post
The WN moves from Boston continue to moderately reduce its presence there. Will be interesting to see what resumes post MAX crisis.Jump to post
Planned expansion at New York-JFK’s Terminal 4 to unify Delta operations, add 16 new gates

The Dublin flight leaves lat(er) - around 8:35. Doesn't solve the problem entirely, but it's a bit better than the 6 or 7 rush in A. The arriving flight lands around 12:45 in the afternoon, so they must be flying some sort of pattern with another 330 flight that departs earlier? Otherwise, they need...Jump to post
panamair wrote:DL will be upgauging both BOS-CDG and BOS-DUB to the A333 (from the 763) in March as a result of the China aircraft redeployment (e.g.,A359 to DTW-AMS/CDG thus freeing up A333s).

I think it was a fair to good quarter and year. They did miss analyst expectations slightly, but I don't think that is a huge deal. I do not follow AA as closely as others, so I am curious what TPHuang and others thing. One thing that jumps out at me is that they seemed to have widespread QoQ and Yo...Jump to post
Boston – Dublin 767-300ER replaces A330-300 during following period: 29MAR20 – 20MAY20, 16SEP20 – 23OCT20 (Previous plan: 767 replaces A330 from 16SEP20) So it looks like DUB is indeed going to get a 330 from May to September, decent bump in capacity for sure. I wonder if DL for 2021 could consider...Jump to post
Not saying AA will do this, but they only miss SFO and maybe RDU among the largest business markets out of BOS. 2 flights a day to SFO and maybe 4 to RDU would help preserve their position in BOS. It would be interesting to see them try SFO. I’m curious what equipment they would use on the route. I...Jump to post
With DL adding a 4th BOS-SEA for Summer, there are now up to 11 daily flights on the route. There were 2 each by B6 and AS in July 2010 There were 2 dailies by AA in July 2000. B6 and AS were not at BOS yet. Capacity double between 2000-2010 and went beyond doubling in 2010-2020. Some growth is war...Jump to post
United’s operation at EWR is impressive. I also think that the actual piers of terminal C are pretty nice and once the clubs are all renovated, those will be nice too. I also love JFK T4. It’s not perfect, especially the walk to the commuter jets. But it’s bright, airy, and pretty clean. I love the ...Jump to post
Why would AA care about JFK when it owns an East Coast gateway to Europe like PHL. JFK is for airlines who lack and East Coast gateway like Delta. AA is good at what matters from JFK. Serving LHR and LAX. Along with other big business centers. I think that AA’s moves at JFK are making them less com...Jump to post

The timing is interesting. I have to imagine that Boeing is more confident in the timeline. Calhoun is likely an interim CEO to steer through the return of the Max and until they find a suitable replacement. The replacement needs a story arc of a new chapter.Jump to post

Some of this is also being driven by a change in ideals.

If you live even a little south of I-90 like Hopkinton, now PVD is in play. If you live North of I-90 like Concord, MHT is actually closer. If you live far enough West of Worcester, BDL is better.

As Americans continue to cluster themselves in 20 or so major metropolitan areas, we will probably see fewer and fewer connecting passengers relative to nonstop passengers.

This column does bring back memories of many more cities that were once hubs: AA at BNA, RDU, and SJC DL at CVG and MEM (MEM previously NW and even RC-Republic before that). PDX was a small hub with flights across the Pacific. NW had a mini-hub at BIL TW at MCI. Also had small hubs at ABQ and PIT a...Jump to post
I wouldn't be surprised if DL moves a chunk of their int'l departures to E, especiallyt he wide bodies. Whether it's a bad idea or not will depend on how DL implements it. If they launch the BOS jitney, then it won't be that different than a number of other airports. As an aside, I wonder what they'...Jump to post
