Re: Fresno Aviation Thread - 2019

United has been regularly upguaging Chicago from A319s to A320s and 737-700s to 737-800s. They are full or nearly full most nights. Service seems to be doing really well. Could we see a second ORD or an IAH flight next summer as a result? Anyone have numbers for European connections out of FAT? A l...

Re: Norwegian and Air Canada 737 MAX Transatlantic crew

IIRC, on my HA flight from LAX-OGG 2 years ago, one of the FAs said the LAX based crews often do same day turns to the islands, so LAX-HNL/OGG/KOA-LAX, which is a pretty long day I think.

Re: Will Any US Airline Fly from the US to CGK?

The answer is the same with routes to Malaysia and Vietnam, the yields are simply not there to justify a ULH route. Traffic is mostly leisure and will flock to the lowest fares, which route through China/Japan/etc.

Re: FAT Traffic Another Record in Q1

Just for fun, looking at the current PDEW between Fresno and some of the cities mentioned today (without consider connecting opportunities): MSP - 32 ATL - 26 IAH - 25 CLT - 17 Interesting. Though all 4 of those hubs provide many 1-stop destination opportunities not available with FAT's current fli...

Re: FAT Traffic Another Record in Q1

The FAT master plan estimates (just a rough cost until actual design and bidding) put a 2 gate expansion, new FIS, plus expanded baggage makeup, expanded security, and expanded concessions at over $63 million. California construction costs (even in Fresno) will be higher than in Oklahoma or Kansas ...

Re: FAT Traffic Another Record in Q1

Interesting, it looks like (based on United.com) that FAT-ORD mainline only lasts for April, then in May it goes back to an OO E175. Possibly due to summer schedule coming in effect and the A319 is needed somewhere else?

Re: Pre-emptive thread UAL 777 to MKE

To put some more information out there: - The Dodgers usually take a 738 or 753 during the regular season (March through September). 738s are generally used on their shorter trips while this year they opted for the 753 on East Coast trips and when their roster expanded in September (meaning more pla...

Re: Alaska Airlines to announce new markets soon

While I am personally biased towards FAT, I still see great potential for AS here, especially with the OO mx and crew base (although FAT has historically been a CRJ-only crew base), and as mentioned, the current renovations of gate 6 and 8 to accommodate B737s/A320s. Some thoughts: 1. I second the s...

Twitter user Tyler Rogoway @Aviation_Intel reports there may be a crash site and unconfirmed if F-15's shot it down. Of course, this is still unconfirmed.

Re: F9's Return to FAT

Really surprised to see them change the one-stop A320 to ORD to the evening A321, but of course F9's schedule is always rotating. And with UA starting ORD in June I can see why they would change the scheduling. I would love to see FAT attract some more carriers and routes. DL is sorely lacking, with...

Re: Potential Delta CSeries Routes

As much I don't think they will be based in ATL, I'd love to see them launch ATL-FAT or even FAT-MSP one of these days and the Cseries would be the perfect plane to use. I recall DL was going to launch FAT back in 2007 before it got scrapped because of the recession, and with AA going double daily 7...
