Spot on. I think unfortunately the with future pilots shortages every one is facing it's going to spark another round of mergers. WN found itself fighting a losing war against FL so it bought and killed it off. Now with B6 growth on the Northern Eastern US,FL and Caribbean it's making that Apple lo...Jump to post
It's interesting, and I don't know why, but this particular WN-Sked-Extension thread has now reached 25 posts with only a couple of posts talking about what is expected or hoped to be included in the new schedule -- the whole purpose of the thread! Heck, I don't think there's been even a single (se...Jump to post
DY should operate a feeder flight to DUB to connect with its flights there ... they could pick up local traffic , feed their 4/5 Irish transatlantic flights and I’m sure EDI passengers would soon work out how to split their tickets to avoid U.K. departure taxes... If they are going to fly Max's to ...Jump to post
There is room to add at least 2 extra runways at LAS, but it would require the following: ⋅ Realignment of Las Vegas Boulevard between the Mandalay Bay Casino and I-215 ⋅ Realignment of Sunset Road between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eastern Avenue ⋅ Realignment or tunneli...Jump to post
If this is true, it’s more evidence that DL is trying to undermine B6 at BOS by adding flights that B6 feeds to their partners that DL can’t grab with places like DUB and LIS, plus PDL feed they can capture over JFK. Almost looks like DL is going to try and put to screws to B6 at BOS like they did ...Jump to post
The only thing that matters is ...are there customers willing to pay real $$ for enough aircraft to start the program? I still have my doubts. Who especially, are the launch customers? I'll set down my marker here, so I can be embarrassed by it later. This is my guess for NMA launch (both carriers ...Jump to post
Notices they used recently used this ex Singapore bird on the JFK/LGW route. It left delayed every time likely due to gate issues. The plane is a far better sub in than the much criticized tired old leased 747s and 330s of Wamos. Wonder how often they plan on leasing out that bird in the future with...Jump to post
They finally got around to extending their 2019 summer schedule from the smaller markets like Austin and Denver. CDG did make a summer comeback to DEN. Their fares early on are a good bit higher from the first of June into summer in those markets it seems. Getting those A320s producing by selling th...Jump to post
You know, I had a huge surprise with WN over the weekend. They don't fly IND-STL??? Nope. To me its on of the STL route maps biggest gaps. IND, SLC, JAX, ORF and CLT. In my opinion. The STL airport director said in an interview a few months ago they want to add JAX (F9 has since added), SDF, and IN...Jump to post
As of June the airport was open, but the terminal wasn't finished yet and the airport also had no airfield lights. I doubt any airline would contemplate service until the terminal is finished and lighting is in place - http://flightservicebureau.org/what-do-you-sphinx-about-this-new-airport/ Thanx ...Jump to post
KLAS from KISP Lots of people have been saying LAS-ISP on here. Seems plausible considering some of the other way out there nonstops that WN has from LAS... I agree that WN could possibly bring back LAS-ISP nonstop service, and in addition, WN could also add LAS-CVG and LAS-MEM nonstop service. WN ...Jump to post
Will UA ever add IAD-MKE nonstop service? The lack of UA IAD-MKE nonstop service is one of the largest holes in the DC market since WN is currently the only airline to serve DC nonstop from MKE and since MKE is located in the largest U.S. metropolitan area that isn't currently served from IAD. UA w...Jump to post

Thanks for the update! UP starting a BOS-NAS route (already well-served by DL/B6) is bizarre. Could Atlantis or the new cable beach resorts be behind this? :) Always possible, but they would not want to subsidize a served market IMHO. Awww no more YYJ for UA?! Oh yeah, I forgot that one in the thre...Jump to post
DL BNA/CVG getting cut may be a response to WN's ATL service and Delta's bolstering their passenger numbers on that route. Cincy service is simply expendable when it comes to making sure ATL maintains feed levels. Doesn't bode well for Cincy. The 'southeast' is getting cut off from CVG. XNA, MEM, an...Jump to post
AA just "connected the dots" with lots of Midwest cities this summer that previously only had service to ORD, DFW or CLT, so I don't see a ton of domestic expansion coming any time soon. However, there are some obvious holes that I think need to be filled domestically: PHL-SJC PHL-SMF PHL...Jump to post
This may be a big dark horse but I think MEM is a market that could possibly sustain a 1-3x weekly TATL service (Maybe Seasonal) on WW or FI with an A321NEO or 737MAX (If they have the legs), if not maybe a 752 with FI. There's a decent tourism market in MEM. I think WW would probably be better sui...Jump to post
Companies as a whole should have stayed off facebook, even social media. The comments are ridiculous. Social Media and it's mob mentality is no win ever.

Gets popcorn, this discussion shall be fun! If what they are saying is true, Alaska Airlines has dropped the ball here.

This will be interesting imho, especially as the whole story is so full of emotion and I find it hard to guess the feeling in the US right now, not at Boeing and surely not within the current government. In the end the whole play was unnecessary even with the DL order BBD was weak and under constan...Jump to post

WN would be a nice candidate. Filling in those smaller cities with CS versus 737 works better. I think 737 has gotten to big for some of their routes to smaller markets. I realize it's unlikely but they would be able to integrate this to off set the 737's. They could also be used to open up all of ...Jump to post
In regards to JetBlue, if they want to go TATL, I would think they need to hit up a few ciites they may serviced in the past or new cities that coule help the feed. Let's take Boston/Memphis with a PDEW of a 100+ according to ANNA Aero. Nonstop service was stopped in 2012 with the Delta dehubbing. A...Jump to post

So, as I wrote (too) late yesterday (this morning, in fact), fundamentally, BBD is paying for AIB to take the CSeries, BBD and the Quebec government save faces because the nominal headquarter and the current jobs stay where they are (meaning; no job losses before the next provincial and federal ele...Jump to post
Personally I think hell will freeze over first before Boeing even get a sniff of a deal with BBD. It's just not going to happen :shakehead: Rgds Why not? The value of the C-Series Program just increased dramatically. If Boeing ups the Airbus deal by putting several billion USD on the table, it is i...Jump to post
But there may be deals which Airbus can now make more favourable with big airlines as a consequence of being able to offer the C-series Who knows?

Here's a simple fact. The C Series program was worth about 2 to 2.5 Billion in US dollars. Boeing could have offered about that in cash to Bombardier to take on the C-Series for itself with the promise of keeping the Quebec line open for the CS100s and some CS300s while getting a lot of the investme...Jump to post
The end of BBD's attempts to compete with Boeing and Airbus, but the events of the last 5 years have shown that they weren't capable of doing this. And with the financial problems affecting the whole company (the rail business is under pressure too) the lack of financial security of its parent must...Jump to post
Maybe JetBlue will now be more than kicking the tires of the C-Series. Yeah, Embraer has to be hitting the bottle tonite. Lots of assumptions but AB will help sell this plane and provide Bombardier needed cash to work on it's CRJs. I bet they can put a lot of what they learned on the C Series in a ...Jump to post
Boeing had it's chance to buy the C-Series when it exposed an apparent gap in its line up. Instead they wanted to destroy it. Now, they will pay. I bought Bombardier at a buck. I'm happy. Watch the orders roll in now. The US gains more jobs in Alabama, keeps the supplier jobs and the anti dumping ta...Jump to post
I would hope they hold off till the 797 was launched. They could they expand Hawaii nonstops from beyond the west coast into Texas, SLC, Denver, Chicago, Nashville, Baltimore. Use them on transcon and heavy load routes to reduce frequencies to free up additional slots especially at Love. Could they ...Jump to post
They need to add Jackson Hole, no one wants to fly to SLC and then drive to Jackson.
I will watch how Frontier does with 3x weekly starting in May 2018.
Why would BBD not provide all requested information? Well it all depends on what information was requested. If information in regards to exactly what rivets were used in what portion of the aircraft (let's add up the price of all the rivets) might make sense right?
