American operated 102 fewer flights in June 2018 compared to June 2018 (-14 %) Delta traffic up 11.1% with 142 more flights. Sun Country traffic up 201.5% Condor up 77.5% Volaris up 14.6% Skywest up 83.7% with a 78% increase in flights. Considering a slowing economy, airline cutbacks and route reev...Jump to post
SY is at it again with SJD reportedly being added in December. They must be doing OK in Portland because they keep adding smart cities. I'm also amazed at how much activity there is from Prime Air in/out of Portland. Is it the distribution centers in Troutdale, Hillsboro, Portland, and soon Salem th...Jump to post
That's what we want to see actually. High fares, mostly full planes. That allows Delta to justify the service and expand it in the future. $3500 r/t is steep, but, close in, only non-stop to London? Probably worth saving $1500 to avoid a connection or longer route. $10k for D1 is tough. I paid ~$5....Jump to post
Without any backing data, my hope would be for MSY, TPA, FLL, and IAD, but I could see SY adding MSY, TPA, and FLL before Alaska gets around to it. Here are the Q4 2018 PDEW's of some of the top domestic routes that AS doesn't currently serve nonstop from PDX: PDX-IAD 122 PDX-BNA 116 PDX-MSY 106 PD...Jump to post
Even though AS hasn't yet taken delivery of any 737 MAX planes due to the 737 MAX groundings, AS is currently scheduled to take delivery of additional A320neo planes next year. There are still some more nonstop routes that could be added out of PDX by AS such as PDX-CVG, PDX-CLE, PDX-CMH, PDX-FLL, ...Jump to post

Condor is moving up its PDX-FRA start date next year to 10 April (from early June.) The season runs through 20 October, 4x/week.

I think MSY is a no-brainer :checkmark: :checkmark: PDX is the only FAA-large hub that MSY doesn't have a nonstop to. Nearly 200PDEW, which is probably ripe for stimulation. Definitely due! Absolutely. It’s low hanging fruit. Why nobody has jumped on it is beyond me. Long overdue in my opinion.Jump to post

This, after Spirit and Sun Country started the route, bringing it to ~13 flights daily each way. Five carriers. OK.

Good to see. I'd imagine not unrepentantly stranding pax might've gone a long way toward that as well. :duck: I wouldn't be surprised to see them continue with their PDX expansion, particularly to the likes of MSY, Florida, and areas in the southeast for whom PDX is a notable hole.

I hadn't noticed if this topic had its' own thread elsewhere. Frontier Airlines announced n/s PDX-LAS flights starting November 14, 2019.

Not meaning to make light of the tragedy which occurred and my heart goes out to the grieving families but, shouldn’t we ground all aircraft of this make and model until we can make sure all are safe. It is not different than the 737 MAX. Any loss of life is a tragedy and needs to be properly inves...Jump to post
As reported in other threads, Allegiant is adding Redmond to LAS and IWA.

I wish Sun Country the best, but with seasonal service, ...Jump to post
Looks like next year's DL PDX-LHR is scheduled to run with an A330-200. Nonstop daily PDX-LHR resumes May 7, 2019. Which explains the HND-PDX flight being on the 332, I think we were wondering how it would route out of PDX, since HND has their only DL A-332 arrival & departure to/from PDX. DTW-...Jump to post

With Sun Country having a hub at MSP and focus cities in Nashville and Portland, what is there route strategy? Are they targeting mostly O&D out of BNA and PDX or are they routing people through them like they would a hub?

I always felt like PDX-PAE was a weird route to do 4x daily. The only way it made sense was if the connection opportunities to east coast i.e. IAD, ATL, FLL, etc. were available, but they're not. Why would anyone want to connect from PAE to go to California when the E175 can do it fine and when PAE ...Jump to post
I was looking at a sampling of AS destinations out of PDX in April 2020 and if what I saw is true , most of the current frequencies on routes will be reduced dramatically.....ANC down to 2 daily, OAK down to 2 daily, SMF down to 2 daily, SJC is down to 4 daily, BZN down to 1 daily and so on...........Jump to post
Total flights at PDX for the month of April dropped to 14,094 from 14,874 in April 2018. Hard to believe with the population growth and a relatively booming economy. The port has a lot of work to do to reverse this. So first, not sure where you're getting those numbers. According to the report, the...Jump to post

SEA-OAK/BUR/ONT are operated by Alaska and Southwest, while DL would be the sole operator on SEA-LGB. But that is just a bet
Exactly right. The same argument can be said for San Diego to LAX...most people don't. They fly out of the airport that's closest to them. The only time I've driven up to Seattle and flown out of SEA instead of PDX was because I was non-revving and that was the best option available. No, millions o...Jump to post

PDX? What a waste. No connecting traffic on either end and Delta has cut the route twice in the past. It should have been saved for JAL or ANA.

As the topic heading suggests, what percentage of the world is connected with just one-stop from any given origin city?
Conversely, what percentage of the world is connected with non-stop flights?
As the A321LR and 797 come along, that'll all but eliminate the need for KEF as far as a connecting hub is concerned, unless FI and WW (if they exist) can offer connections from NA to Europe at steep discounts compared to nonstop flights, at which point they teeter on the brink of nonprofitability....Jump to post

Rather than having nine lives, I think it's more comparable to an animal that keeps coming back from the Pet Sematary.
Growth at PDX has stalled. In March 2019 total passenger traffic was up a paltry 1.1%. The lack of commitment from ULCCs and absence of new nonstops to fill unserved routes is taking its toll. Fewer people are willing to take 8-hour connecting flights to and from unserved or underserved (seasonal o...Jump to post
