What's the story with WN at SFO nowadays? and do you think these cuts will help AS? SFO is a mess? Traffic getting to and from is bad, IFR delays, shortage of gates and a fortress UA hub? All true, but I would have thought the gate situation would have gotten a little relief with the portion of T1 ...Jump to post
WN is going to be permanently discontinuing SFO-AUS and SFO-DAL nonstop service after January 5th. WN dropping SFO-MKE seasonal nonstop service and adding OAK-MKE nonstop service might happen with WN having already dropped SFO-ATL/PDX/SNA and WN dropping SFO-AUS/DAL.

Good god, how does anyone read articles on Airways when the article keeps jumping up and down because of those damned ads?
What I could read of the article, the planned routes don’t make sense and they aren’t going to have a hub for connections?
I snicker when folks bring up the "there's not enough PDEW to stimulate the route" argument because, if airlines purely operate on that paradigm, WN would be hosed as a business and never start new routes...does it occur to anyone that new routes can actually stimulate the PDEW? While I a...Jump to post
SDM is currently in negotiations with US Navy and SD Port Authority. I bet I know who will win that battle. Right now SDM is an extension of Coronado. Everything I am being told (married to the source) is that we can count out SDM being an extension of SAN. Good thing the airport has its own set of...Jump to post
When I worked air ambulance, I remember the company fighting with LGB over the curfew as well. They wanted the patient's chart and a bunch of other information that we were unable and unwilling to provide due to privacy laws.

I wonder if AA is just going to pony up the $$ for the fine since they are the ones who set the schedule and have schedule/operational control over what YV does. Some of this falls on Mesa. They tend to over schedule their CRJ900's with 30-40 minute turns for the whole day. If anything goes wrong d...Jump to post
Airlines should strictly follow the laws and for any late flights be sure to let the Passengers know they are diverting to BUR and busing them in because the city will not let them land 10 minutes past curfew.

I'm honestly surprised that LGB still has service considering their history of treating carriers poorly (especially B6) when it comes to the noise ordinance.

FWIR, it had very strong loads (no info on yield) so there was at least that.

Nice steady growth for WN in latest OAG thread. Frequency increases to PHX, MCI, LAS, BWI, HOU, DAL, AUS, MDW, and DEN. Minor reductions to SAN and SAT. Bigger reduction of a daily flight to LAX. SJC also discontinued likely due to MAX issues and Hawaii expansion. Hoping it and SMFwill come back on...Jump to post
They are no longer flying DAL-OKC? :o Are you sure of that? WN had stated that it was going to be permanently discontinuing DAL-OKC in its January 2020 Base Schedule summary.

Previously mentioned in another thread, they are reducing an LAX frequency.
I thought the LAX reduction was how they funded the PSP addition.

The City owns and is ultimately responsible for the well-being of Love Field - Southwest's shifting of capacity out of DAL could certainly create a ripple effect.

The point is that stafting 2024 WN can expand in DFW - the WARA handcuffs come off.

I'm sure WN would love to have frequencies to AMA, LBB, AUS, SAT, HOU, LIT, OKC, TUL, ELP, MAF and others at the level they were duing Wright Amendment days. Planes were full. WN made lots of money. With 18 gates and an apparent top of 195 departures, that is not possible. Maybe that will change in...Jump to post
I’m guessing they need to wait for the MAX to return before they can make SAN to Hawaii happen. And why do you say that Silver1' ?

Or SJC-AMS/KIX? I’m still waiting for DL to announce *anything* new after their “focus city” statement.

In fact I just looked at the Nov skeds for AS and guess what? In November, PDX-SFO will op with 6 mainline jets & 1 EMJ (totaling 7 per day) while PDX-SJC will be 6 flights a day, but 4 will be EMJs & 2 Boeings.
