Airspace around the country is under constant analysis. If NYC's class B is still at 7,000, then there is some continuing reason for it. Looking at the two areas, I think the main thing is that NYC and the surrounding area is pretty much blanketed by Class E airspace down to 700 ft AGL, so that are...Jump to post

*sighs and twiddles thumbs* still no AA ORD-GFK or DFW-GFK, at least no reductions to FAR on AA Not happening. FAR is too easy to get to from GFK and is a much larger market.

Recently flew UA 48 EWR-BOM, the flight did not touch Iranian airspace nor Pakistan air space. It went through Turkey and then Iraq and then on to the Red Sea. UA 82 flights are the problem now as these flights have to avoid Pakistan airspace so they go north of BOM to reach DEL. Flying through Tib...Jump to post

OO only has 19 700's at UA, and as far as I know they are OO owned so they wouldn't be shifted over to G7. G7 could bring their planes over from DL and OO could repurpose their UA 700 flying elsewhere. Although after looking at the EV sale, OO was given protection over current flying and a priority...Jump to post

I have flown into KEGE for around 8 years, and the loads are going up more and more. I remember when AA used to fly the 752 to DFW in the summer, and did EGE-DEN-MIA on the 752 as well. The 757 is a great plane for EGE, but the lack of them at AAL/UAL and most of them being sked on flights to south...Jump to post
So when the 757s are all retired, what will be the successor aircraft? A321. Quite unlikely. The airport is over 6500' above sea level and has a challenging departure procedure.

You guys do not warrant flights to several different airports. Try to fill your 100 seats a day to DEN first. Actually, these OO bids seem to do well.

I like UA's new commitment to smaller markets in the US whether it is EAS service bids or simply underserved markets or even interline with partners such as Silver, Boutique or Cape Air that serve smaller communities..

On a slightly different note, who was the last major network carrier to serve CYS? : Back in, I believe, the late 1980s, mainline UA had service to CYS.

LAX has a VFR Cooridor directly over the airport at 2500 feet.

Didn't F9 do flights into ASE with Lynx Q400s before the transition to LLC?
Very short sighted comment. Boutique Air has lost out on many of their EAS bids (especially from DEN) due to only having one engined aircraft. It’s not ideal in a mountainous area to many communities. Hence why they have invested in King Air 350s. The other issue is weight limitations. GLA’s passen...Jump to post

I was looking at the routemaps for Skywest and noticed under the United brand flying map they have Fort Collins (FNL) listed on their map.

Skywest/UA out of DEN seems to be taking a page from AA/DFW with going for smaller EAS cities in the plains to their large hub.

Part of the reason is because everyone around has been siphoning away traffic from MHT: BOS, ORH, BTV, PWM, even PSM.. Part of the reason is cost. It's not cheap to fly from MHT. Often it's more expensive than BOS even when parking is included. MHT is not going to grow until they find a way to make...Jump to post
