Apparently Ed announced in an internal memo today that Delta is unlikely to add many more flights post-August, especially given the recent spike in cases.. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/delta-says-unlikely-add-many-142138861.html Sounds like the EU to proposing a ban on US Citizens due to the spik...Jump to post
EI BOS-MSP JUN 0.0>0.3
Is this a tag?
If we're talking about pre-COVID destinations, I don't believe that's correct. UA at ORD served a ton of destinations, including many smaller/EAS destinations like SLN, CGI, CMX, EAU, DEC, MKG, PAH, CKB, LWB, SHD, and OGS. Nonetheless, I agree with the overall point that MSP and DTW will both be hu...Jump to post
AC, AA and DL are the only airlines still flying transborder in April. This struck me as strange: DL MSP-YWG APR 4>0.0 DL MSP-YXE APR 1.8>1.0[1.8] YWG is more than 3x the size of YXE, yet YXE keeps a daily DL flight. Yes. I’m surprised by how many routes are being suspended. You’d think they’d c...Jump to post
DTW and MSP are not going away. Every airline hub will be trimmed back until things get back to normal. Domestic traveling will be challenging. Flying from the US to international destinations will be a nightmare. But in time everything will stabilize, it’ll just take a while.Jump to post
They’re blaming the shutdown on the coronavirus. Imo they were having problems long before then.

If their banning US citizens from flying internationally they’ll need to ban airlines from flying international routes.Jump to post
I tend to agree.... I think itll ramp up faster than 9/11 only because its a virus not a terrorist threat. whats really gonna be the deciding factor is how fast the economy spools back up I’m curious to what will happen in the meanwhile domestically. I’m sure it’ll be slowed. But if you have an air...Jump to post

Not anymore. President just announced that effective Monday all UK flights will also be part of the ban.
Does that make MSP-HND the only international long haul fight from MSP at the moment then?
CDC approves BOS and MIA, but rejected adding MSP. Presumably has to do with volume of international traffic. DL yesterday announced MSP-LHR would also cancel. I saw some rumors of MSP-DUB cancelling too, but I’m not sure. The MAC meeting Monday, via teleconference, should be interesting. January t...Jump to post
Delta is set to cancel all fight in between MSP-AMS, MSP-CDG, and FI from MSP-KEF until I’m guessing around April because of the coronavirus. Does anyone know why MSP isn’t classified as one of the U.S airports that can allow flights from Europe to come in at this time? I know it might seem like a ...Jump to post
This will be worse for the airline industry than 9/11.Jump to post
This will be the worst year for airlines since 9/11. Maybe even worse. International travel will be hit hardest.Jump to post
The government will bailout Korean Air if such thing happens. No question marks. See how much the government assisted in Asiana case. I have to wonder if it came down to KE shutting down, could/would the Korean government try to persuade one of the big conglomerates (Hyundai) to step in ? I think t...Jump to post

Who is KG? And If I do an MSP-TVF flight search for June and July, everything still comes up Boutique.

If SY wasn’t already flying to SBA it might be a good candidate.Jump to post
Not to nitpick but if DL is going to do MSP-China flights it would be to PKX, not PVG. :D I don't see another European carrier coming into the MSP market for 2020. But if any other foreign carriers are coming in, most likely they will be announcing soon. SY will be beefing up MSP, B6 is probably the...Jump to post

Does SY still have an interline agreement with DE? With Condor serving BWI, I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
I wonder if SY picked some of the destinations to fit in with their sport/military charter flights. Their schedulers must be very busy. lolJump to post

I always thought the SY was more of a "Leisure" or "Charter" carrier ferrying 'Snowbirds' to Mexico, The Caribbean, Vegas, California and other warm spots. Looks like they are building a traditional domestic network. I've never thought of Cleveland and Baltimore as "Family&...Jump to post

Quite amusing that MKE recently launched a campaign to persuade local travelers to chose the hometown airport over ORD. Allegiant and Volaris just left and now Southwest has been slashing service as well (BOS, LGA, LAX all gone or reduced). Fewer nonstop flight options and higher fares are why MKE ...Jump to post
