United will change its name as soon as Kleenex does.Jump to post
UA must figure it will take next to nothing to drive Frontier off. After all, Frontier is a very fickle airline that doesn't hesitate a minute when ditching a route.Jump to post
@CMH...pretending to be as significant as those natural transatlantic hubs Providence, Stewart, and Hartford.
There are more people in Columbus than in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Hartford, and Providence COMBINED.

The thing about Frontier, at least in my view, is that they aren't reluctant to ditch routes that 'underperform.' The worst case scenario is that Frontier does as people fear...they push JetBlue out. Then, they leave themselves.Jump to post
It's a sad day when Ryanair has a more recognisable and arguably better livery than Aer Lingus. It'll be a sad day if Ryanair ever graces the American shores...whether they have an 'arguably better livery' or not. It's a disgraceful airline that a 'livery' cannot make better. Meanwhile, we'll await...Jump to post
Probably add 'Big Academe' and 'Big Pharma' to Boston's list.
If a BOAC 744 came through Boston, they'd give it a water salute...no matter what 'protocol' and 'tradition' say.Jump to post
Only recently has DL entered or announced its plans to enter UA/AA mega-hubs from BOS, which is where DL stands to experience the most pain and where B6 has already established itself. Many recall that DL has (at least twice) added and then yanked flights to SFO/LAX (back to the Song days). They mi...Jump to post
I guess B6 3x daily BOS-DTW service start on the same day was a coincidence. So, why was it cut from 2x daily to one and why is this only a seasonal upgrade. EK carries only 19% of US-India traffic. They make it look like 110%. Fact is BOS is far better for connecting passengers. No one is looking ...Jump to post
Boston is a global hub for life sciences and education. While only the affluent in India and Africa might be able to afford to travel internationally, they would have a reason to come to Boston. And plenty of business travellers of U.S. origin have reasons to travel to those places. EK doesn't fly ...Jump to post
It appears that BA will bring the 787 back along with the A380. On selected days and selected flights, the 787 handles either of the last two outbounds. The morning is always a 777, the first evening one is the A380, and the second two evening ones bounce between 777/787.Jump to post
What DL MHT-DTW mainline service are you talking about? There is no mainline. There are 2 (only!) flights per day on CRJ-700's. I'm afraid there would need to be demand for 5+ flights/day before DL ever considers mainline.
A DHS ICE 737-400 from Louisiana landed at PSM this morning.Jump to post
My prediction for MHT:
They add a Quickie-Mart with 12 gas pumps about a half mile from the entrance.
I get the sense that ‘back-door-politics’ goes on in the airline industry. One could say that DL and B6 are in Worcester to curry favor with Massport. But over at LHR, would BA put the screws to B6, using their clout to make things ‘inconvenient’ for them in terms of timings and gates?Jump to post
My turn. MHT 2019 perditions/wishlist. WN- DEN,FLL AA- larger equipment to ORD, LGA DL- more frequencies to LGA UA- ORD,EWR resuming Long shot B6 NK F9 to MCO,FLL I can't imagine UA making themselves look foolish by returning to a route they abandoned. I do like the thought of AA E-190s to ORD, but...Jump to post
You have to walk before you can run, and toward that end, MHT would be well served to simply PLATEAU in 2019 and show small growth in 2020. If AA to ORD started right away, I might envision some growth...but because they aren't, their numbers in 2019 probably won't surpass what UA did in 2018. The n...Jump to post
Just got in BKK flying EK. First time in J. Service was excellent, limousine pick up a nice touch. Looked I got the new J seat. Plenty of space even though it has a 2-3-2 layout (I had a window seat). The following A380 was very ratty though. Didn't like it much, even with a private seat it felt mu...Jump to post
I’ve been on the BA239 (ATC calls it 29Golf) from Boston to London three times...twice on a 777 and once on a 789. None of the flights were full (admittedly in the winter all three times) and I don’t know how 238/239 typically does for loads. But it’s been a BOS mainstay for many years so it must do...Jump to post
This is a nice thread, full of useful information and nary a bit of bickering. I'm near MHT, so I've not paid much attention to it since Amazon's planes don't fly here. But just for the sake of seeing information on 'new leases on life' for these 767-300s, I'll be a reader for sure in 2019. Thanks!Jump to post
