The SJC piece is a bit of a head scratcher and the quote from the actual article doesn't clear much up. "The carrier plans to grow capacity by ...23.1% in San Jose this year, schedule show." So this growth is already reflected in their schedule? Has any new service been announced in their...Jump to post

One can only guess where the capacity reduction is coming from to fuel the 14% growth at BOS when system wide the growth is only 4%Jump to post
We should probably all just face the hard fact that Icelandair will likely never return to Cleveland. They’ve tarnished their reputation and reliability to the point that no business travelers, or even some leisure travelers for that matter, will want to risk flying them.

Maybe it hasn’t been loaded yet. Already confirmed it's a negative for DTW. Definitely a shocker. They would have given WN and DL a run for their money.

I think the bigger issue is why are the employees directly or indirectly leaking internal company matters to a “media” outlet.

CLT and SLC maybe close in local passengers but CLT revenue is likey much higher thanks to banking.

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around, DTW is more of a connecting point while MSP is more O&D. Could someone provide more data on this? Regardless, I have long contended both SLC and DTW are underutilized for a connecting standpoint in the DL network. I agree 100% there sure are but it's a...Jump to post

Yes, I believe that once SLC’s new terminal opens, DL will build the hub up to rival DEN. SLC will grow from 157 mainline/281 total peak flights to 222 mainline/504 peak flights than UA offers at DEN. Therefore, I expect DL to place an order for ~50 aircraft soon, just to account for SLC growth. Th...Jump to post
I'll try to keep doing this from month to month as they come out, but here are the load factors from Cleveland for January 2019 January 2019: Keep in mind that January is typically the slowest month of the year -- most loads are much lower than average with the exception of the snowbird routes to F...Jump to post
Does TK have any short term plan for expansion into United States? Detroit would be really nice but until we get a change in Washington I don't think you'll see any new cities added.

I think you will eventually see the A220 extend current seasonal routes to year-round or near year-round, and add frequency to other routes. For example, both ONT and OAK could eventually benefit from more comprehensive service to ATL (frequencies closer to what you see in SMF or SJC, but on the A2...Jump to post
However, the A220 is a clear differentiator against AS and AA respectively. Just look at DFW-LGA, the A220's 2-3 configuration along with PTVs is superior to AA's oasis configured cabins that usually lack PTVs. If AA had a bunch of Oasis 321s on LGA-DFW I'd grant you that point - but that's not wha...Jump to post
Hang on just a minute... All of you screaming for unionization must’ve missed the part where the door was opened and they still didn’t walk.

Not my opinion , reality is Delta would never have done this to unionized employees. Unionized employees have resources. Anyway can bet given the current drive to unionize delta is going to find these employees and shower them in gifts and compensation to keep them quiet and happy. Absolutely false...Jump to post
This keeps getting better. Are any of you familiar with these airports? BFI, IFP, and LMT have NO service from any airline. BFI will get JetSuite X. There’s 20,000 people in LMT. I mean REALLY!?!?

I’ve seen this happen in other instances like the door being closed and mtx returning the logbook through the cockpit window as not to open the door and trip a new OUT time. Also, if the captain ordered the jetbridge back up and door open, they’d open it I’m sure. Plus, fairly certain, at least one...Jump to post
Imho i think it's easy to figure out where it's going by concentrating on the NYC, slc, sea routes that have jumbo RJs on them. Look at west coast routes with 717s. Start and stay there.

With lots of wealth, robust growth in Northern San Diego County, increasingly heavy traffic on the 5, and discriminatory market that would prefer the 2x3 cabin seating, the A220 would be perfect.

I think your first case makes more sense. CLE did well for FI and they would do even better without WW in the picture, and with no new competing carriers, no reason to not operate CLE-KEF.

If I remember correctly, Delta had 4 transatlantic routes from CVG as late as 2010: FRA, CDG, LGW, and AMS (last 2 being on 757-200ER). AF also served CVG along with DL at one time. Also, BRU and FCO were present during CVG's peak. With extremely diverse industries in CIncinnati area, it will not b...Jump to post
