For those interested this article has some great pictures of the retrofitted interior on the DL 767-400 that will be coming to the BOS-LHR route this fall. https://thepointsguy.com/news/aboard-deltas-first-retrofitted-767-400er-with-brand-new-delta-one-seats/ Looks like a pretty nice upgrade.

Does anyone know if there were any diversions/notable cancellations yesterday due to the stormy weather? I thought on my way to work today I saw both a BA 777 and 787 on the ground at about 7:00am. Thought last night's 787 flight had maybe been cancelled but BA's website says all four flights went o...Jump to post

Great trip report! I have heard great things about LX... really hoping to try them one day. The pics from BOS were great too!Jump to post
Happy to hear about the growth at JAX. This certainly is a good justification for the airport expansion that was recently announced. I wonder if they have any info on which airlines in particular are responsible for the most growth And a 25% YOY increase is certainly worth posting about. Very few ai...Jump to post
The livery looks fine honestly. Wish there was at least one other color in there (like purple), but it would have been worse... What I'm really impressed by is the ability of the members of this site to have so accurately predicted this. The real livery looks SO CLOSE to what people had been produci...Jump to post
While I think It's great that they are (finally) rebuilding Concourse B, I fear these gates will be underutilized. If I'm not mistaken, aren't there unused gates in Concourse C currently? I bet the new concourse will be very nice, if it's anything like the current ones. With the other announced impr...Jump to post

Mildly off topic from the current conversation, but does anyone have any consolidated list of common equipment used by all the airlines at BOS on their routes?

Any word (or speculation) on equipment for the new DL flights? I feel like almost all three of the new routes are right-sized for E175 or 717's - maybe even more C-Series! All appear to be Republic E175's, but flight equipment might change as we get 90 days out from start point. That's for EWR, CLE...Jump to post
Well, it's official. Primera posed they are ceasing operations on their website. There goes some of our new routes. Hopefully some other airlines will pick them up again realizing the opportunity (I could easily see DL on some).

A South Carolina family is suing AA after a woman died following a collapse on a AA102 from HNL to DFW.

Looks like BOS is getting another destination courtesy B6. BOS-BUR will begin September 5 No announcement made yet but it was mentioned in another thread and bookable on their website. I did a dummy booking myself and looks like around a 3:30 departure on A320. Clawing their way to 200 flights a day...Jump to post
I think AA pulled out / removed a lot of flights out of the JFK and Boston markets ..... they dont want to compete with the other air carriers. Not much money to be made there. I think thats the simple explanation. Agreed. The reason for anything the airlines do is money. They are both really compe...Jump to post
I agree that due to the reported dissatisfaction in their current E190 fleet, they will go for the C series.
Optimistically speaking, I think routes like BOS-DUB/EDI/MAN/STN/SNN/KEF are likely, as well as JFK-DUB/SNN/BHX. Hope for the best!
Are airport like BRU, AMS, and CDG within A321LR range?
Did anybody happen to notice in the Massport presentation's section talking about new and increased services that they had listed Avianca to San Salvador? Was this a mistake or did they let some news slip that was not released to the public yet? I can;t find anything about it online...Jump to post
This reminds me of the initial 747-8 concepts that included sleeping areas for first class passengers on the rear of the upper deck.... which never actually happened. It's a neat idea but I don't think it's very practical. What F passenger wants to shlep downstairs to sleep when other airlines offer...Jump to post
Will B6 get into any beef with their TATL partners if they start service? For example, will they fly to DUB and SNN and piss off EI? Or avoid those routes all together? Or perhaps make a JV a la DL and VS?
Seems really bad to turn their back on their partners after such a long time together.
Or maybe Sir Richard will take that opportunity to announce his rebooting of the brand with a new US airline: Second Virgin. Not really a Virgin the second time around, are you? ;) But seriously, I hope they have a nice going away celebration for the airline. it certainly will be missed a lot!Jump to post
In terms of BOS departures for this coming spring/summer, where 1 is Monday and 7 is Sunday: BA238 - usually around 7:40 (777, not sure if E or W - 1234567) BA212 - usually around 19:15 (A380 1,5,7 / 744 2,3,4,6) BA202 - usually around 21:40 (777, not sure if E or W - 1234567) BA214 - usually aroun...Jump to post
I was on a B6 flight last week and seated near the front of the cabin. The FA started making safety announcements and talked for about 30 seconds before she realized she hadn't pressed down the button fully and only the first 4 rows could hear her. She then turned to us and (jokingly) yelled at us f...Jump to post
As far as gate counts go, I seem to recall seeing in the latest board presentation that, in the section regarding construction and expansion, they were playing with the idea of adding more gates to the old United pier of Terminal C. 6 gates certainly could not fit in there, but by the looks of satel...Jump to post
I flew in from LGA Sunday night on B6 (great "enhanced" service onboard IMO) and when we arrived saw a B6 plane at gate C27. I thought that this gate was typically used for Cape Air's flights but instead an E190 was parked there and I saw no 402C's around. Today it shows 9K departures are ...Jump to post
I agree that I am disappointed - and I'm usually not with new liveries, even Eurowhite ones. I liked AC, WN, AA and IB when many did not - but this is just so boring, and I really think its because of the use of one color. That being said - LH's original livery was pretty boring too. It was stereoty...Jump to post
I think the LHR one is useful because of the large amount of TATL traffic. These flights typically arrive earlier in the day and if you're flying in for a business meeting the next day, you might be looking to kill some time before your hotel check in. Conversely, much of the traffic at JFK is also ...Jump to post
I saw an NK plan the other day in the livery that's two generations old! The bird was still in the silver blocky colors, but obviously NK isn't going to spend the money to pull planes out of service just for a paint job. Legacies however will do just that. AC has been painting their fleet pretty fas...Jump to post
Sort of on topic question, but this question doesn't warrant its own thread: what is the B6 BOS-LGA service like? I know that upon launch, they had free beer/wine, free bagels upon boarding, and you could get free coffee in the terminal with your boarding pass, but did these perks survive until toda...Jump to post
With the exception of LHR, all routes to Europe are "monopolies." (LGW is not really a biz airport and AA pulled out CDG). I know they are both SkyTeam, but do AF and DL have a TATL JV like AA and BA do? If not, then that would make CDG still somewhat competitive. Yes they have a JV. It's...Jump to post

BOS layout stinks for a hub airline. It is made for decent sized operations from many carriers. It is not meant for a hub airline, sadly. Terminal A is already almost at capacity.

As much as I wanted a Boeing order, I think DL made the right choice with the A321. The 757's are getting old, and while many will say that the A321 isn't a 757 replacement (and I don't disagree), it's the closest plane being produced right now. Boeing should have focused on a MOM much earlier inste...Jump to post

Hi Guys so does this mean they are putting the international 757s on the routes or some of the widebodies? All D1 flights out of BOS will be the internationally-configured 757s.

Actually, all airline tickets are sold in zones, or "fare classes". For economy alone, BA has 12 different classes (Y,B,H,K,L,M,N,S,V,Q,O,G) based on ticket price and upgrade/FF points eligibility. These classes are applied to all tickets so I would imagine it'd actually be quite easy to i...Jump to post
