I read somewhere that DEN was at 200 cities which would make it #1 domestically - can anyone confirm?Jump to post
I have seen DEN add a number of domestic destinations, partially driven by EAS grants.
Is DEN the most connect domestic (non international) hub now? I think they are definitely over 200 distinct destinations when running at normal capacity. . .
Pre-COVID, DEN has 2x daily FRA (LH & UA), daily MUC, and up to 3x daily London (BA, UA and Norwegian) service. . .Jump to post
Any ideas of what will be the first new (not resumed) international flights to/from the United States? I could see under-served tier 2 cities as DEN, CLT and PDX picking up some new services but not likely until 2021 at the earliest. I know United is going all-in on DEN as a hub including taking on ...Jump to post
Makes sense - they have the balance sheet, the need and the empty gates to make a push to modernize / expand the concourses during this crisis. No mention of the rumored additional gate expansion beyond the 39 currently under construction. I wonder if DEN will lose or gain additional international s...Jump to post
United is going to have a lot of slack with their widebodies with the significant cutbacks in their Asian flying due to the coronavirus. I wonder if they would consider a seasonal experiment from DEN to CDG or AMS using some of their under-utilized widebodies. It would need to happen pretty quick as...Jump to post
As the city council has to vote on this proposal of 24 gates going to United, I think that they (United) will be forced to disclose what incremental routes (namely international) they plan to introduce in the coming years. Many of the A gates that United would take up can handle wide-bodies. I also ...Jump to post
If United is going to be spread between the A and B concourses, I wonder what the airport has planned for improving the inter-concourse train service. Currently the trains are packed and this is during a period when 98% of travelers are using the train to get to/from the Terminal. I can't imagine wh...Jump to post
Hi - I flew out of United’s temporary RJ gates at the east end of DEN’s A concourse this morning. I have to say, it’s actually quite nice and I was wondering why DEN would tear down these “temporary” gates once the construction on the B concourse is complete - I don’t believe they are planning to do...Jump to post
I have noticed that United has recently been using the A intl gates for outbound NRT/FRA/LHR 787 flights without towing the planes over to the B-concourse. I believe this is a relatively recent change. Is UA going to add more DEN long-haul before the new gates on A open? CDG? AMS? BOG? AKL?Jump to post
I thought I read that DEN - DUB was going to be on Aer Lingus in 2020 as part of an incentive package the city put together to attract a new carrier.
My Denver guesses: DEN-CDG, DEN-LHR (year-round), DEN-BOG (JV with Avianca) or a longer shot DEN-AKL
It will be interesting to see if there is spare space on the A Concourse expansion for another United Club given United’s interest in taking a number of the new gates. It would be interesting the see an analysis of number of flights (or departure seats) per United club (or club size) at various airp...Jump to post
From the data below (thanks DEN1895) we know that Denver is the most well connected domestic US station and O'Hare maintains the title of most connected global US-based station. Question: What are the most well connected international hubs (either here in the US or overseas)? Also - if you fast forw...Jump to post
United is starting their year-round Denver - Frankfurt service today using a 787-8. It will be interesting to see the impact on LH's 747-400 service which departs roughly 2 hours later each direction. Any thoughts on what United (or any other international carrier) will add to Denver next? The A con...Jump to post
With UA adding DEN - FRA daily and reintroducing the seasonal DEN - LHR next summer I would imagine that the A widebody gates are nearly at capacity in the afternoons. I wonder if they have capacity to add more widebody flights before the new gates open in 2020. I believe Norwegian is bringing back ...Jump to post
Apologies if there has been a recent post on this topic but I am curious to know what the most well connected domestic USA hubs are (ie the number of domestic destinations served). I believe ATL, DFW and ORD were up there as of 2017 but DEN has added a ton of new destinations and may be closing in o...Jump to post
I have noticed lots of progress for the main terminal redesign but so far I haven’t seen any real signs of work for the 39 new gates that are suppose to be ready early next year? Anyone have any insight if there is a delay? I heard that United will get their gates first on the B concourse followed b...Jump to post
Sounds like Denver airport thinks it will be another Frankfurt flight:
Already have LH flights to FRA (747-400) and MUC (A350) so I am not sure this makes sense although they regularly go out full. . .
I still think CDG or possibly AMS. . .
Apparently Scott Kirby said today that they hope to announce another European destination in the near future (besides the seasonal LHR service). https://twitter.com/e_russell/status/1031951198029598721 So what city do people think? Paris? Not sure if he is talking about the expected Aer Lingus Dubli...Jump to post
Lots of construction ramping up in Denver - both the Great Hall re-development and 39 new gate expansion projects are underway. We witnessed a flurry of international service announced / added in 2017 (Norwegian to LGW & CDG, Edelweiss to ZRH, Copa to PTY, etc) but haven't heard of any increment...Jump to post
I suspect that the $400K incentive package is for Aer Lingus which would be another nice add. At this point DEN has Western Europe quite well covered - I would like to see another flight to Asia, one to the Middle East and possibly a South America nonstop.Jump to post
Got to figure AF, KL and TK are looking at Denver. . .Jump to post
United is re-starting its seasonal nonstop Denver - London Sat, March 24th (UA 26/27) - routing looks to be the 787-8 to/from Tokyo. I wonder if United will ever make this year-round service - I suspect that BA and Norwegian are doing pretty well on this route but don't offer the connections that Un...Jump to post
Singapore has 7 A350ULR aircraft on order with the first in assembly. Any idea of when Singapore Air will announce the routes for these new aircraft? We know it will be likely New York / Newark and Los Angeles but this only accounts for 5 frames. Where will the other 2 aircraft be deployed?Jump to post
It's been some time since we discussed what we thought would be next new destinations to/from Denver? United claims that they will be adding a lot of capacity to the market in the coming quarters (including bringing back the London flight) but does anyone have any interesting ideas of what's next fo...Jump to post
