Does anyone else get the logic in excluding the U.K.? Any European can just fly into open borders U.K. and jump on a flight to the US?? Um no. Customs will have the data on where the passenger originated from. Uhm there are no passport checks in Europe - so how would customs know where someone trav...Jump to post

I agree, that seemed odd to go from 2 to 0. I would bet that drop is not COVID related.

The MCO region just isn’t big enough yet for these two airports to complement each other the way that FLL/MIA do. The only other exception in FL is perhaps TPA/SRQ, which are overlapping regions. (And yet, the more apt comparison, in TPA/PIE, offers a history of airlines trying to serve both, and ul...Jump to post
Like many others, I had to double-check to be sure it wasn't April Fool's, especially regarding SEA-BLR. I know it's been talked about a lot on a-net but have never seen any O&D numbers.

I believe a large reason why Air Canada deploys wide-bodies on the route is the MAX grounding, they're low on capacity right now. AC regularly deployed widebodies on the YYZ-SFO and YYZ-LAX routes (among multiple other transborder routes) long before the MAX grounding happened. I think that's got m...Jump to post

Yes, RSW is part of South Florida. So is TPA, then. We all know South Florida is synonymous with the MIA region. TPA is Central Florida. Tell that to the University of South Florida. We could go around all day. Point is, RSW is by no measure in the same region as MIA/FLL/PBI, and that’s common sense.Jump to post
In 18 months, of these additions, only MIASLC and MIAMCO will remain, and MIAMCO will be down to 2X daily. I'm not optimistic but I'll take the over on that, thinking 2x TPA-MIA might survive. DL is certainly moving quickly to try for a return on its $2.25 Billion. These adds, the LATAM JFK termina...Jump to post
In 18 months, of these additions, only MIASLC and MIAMCO will remain, and MIAMCO will be down to 2X daily. DL flew TPA-MIA a few years ago (Pre-VS JV) to feed their MIA-LHR flight using CRJs. That entire enterprise collapsed. Will be interesting to see if this context is substantially different eno...Jump to post

Utilization/availability will be a factor, but the MAX10 would seemingly be a better frame for that.
Isn't a 777 kind of an overkill for a football team? I believe most soccer teams manage to fit in a narrowbody, why such a big bird for them? NFL Teams travel with 140-180 or so personnel, so it's not a small contingent. 53 active (and not so small) players, plus a few spares, coaches, medical/trai...Jump to post
NYC is in the US. I don’t understand what you are saying, or why you are falling into an axe over this. The point is: Miami has a highly internationalized banking sector that is unique is size and position. There are many ways to measure the size of the financial sector, and I offered one example w...Jump to post
It is absolutely 100% accurate. Brickell Avenue has the single largest concentration of international banks in the United States. Given Miami’s stability compared to Latin America, many major banks operate their Latin America operations out of Miami rather than elsewhere. Yup. MIA has the largest c...Jump to post
Miami doesn't have finance? It's only the largest concentration of international banks in the U.S. And then it serves as the Latin America center of operations for a number of companies.

I thought DE served Florida, is there more potential for a leisure oriented carrier like DE to serve MSP or PIT instead of TPA, MCO or FLL?

FY19 pax numbers are out, and the airport saw a new record - 22.16m pax. That’s a 5.5% increase over last year. International growth was particularly strong at over 19%.

What exactly do you expect a West Coast airline to add to an airport that can’t even support more than one daily flight to LAX? Huh? DL has flown a second daily for much of the year for several, several years. WN’s TPA-LAX/SAN flights have become seasonal with the MAX issues. They were new routes w...Jump to post
Really the only connections that can be made are Alaska, so it's clear DL isn't going after connecting traffic but pure O&D. And as mentioned TPA has a very loyal DL FF base.

Will Austin get all those route? I don't think so. But I would not be surprised by AMS, CDG or NRT in the slightest. China and Ireland seem unlikely IMO I mean tbh, that's not really saying much.

Why should air travelers have to pay for things not related to air travel? The tax is to offset the negative environmental impact of flying, in part by subsidizing technologies which also offset emissions.

OK, if we are looking at CityLine and UA as well, then yea I see it. If we exclude UA, IAH has to be added to the not-from-MUC list.

Thanks as always, e. re NK in MCO/Florida, I wouldn’t say that this is a major shift one way or the other. In TPA, you see two sub-daily routes shift to MCO, yet the overall trend is up 4-5 daily flights YoY, for example. The only story I see is the shift from sub-daily flights (a la AirTran) to a c...Jump to post
Indeed, not sure the private v public distinction is a useful one for evaluating airport performance.

I think most of the reasons have been covered. Contrary to a.net myth, FL can and is profitably served quite well by legacies.
