Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - 2018

While I think flights to FLL and MIA are definitely a good add- I would argue that most people in the PDX catchment area would rather vacation in Hawaii than Florida. I personally like Florida, but it's definitely not considered as nice a destination as Hawaii by many people around here (aside from ...

Re: NH175 LAX-NRT returning to LAX due to a passenger being onboard who shouldnt be onboard

There was an episode of Full House (American Sit-com) Where Stephanie and Michelle accidentally boarded a flight to Auckland (out of SFO) and had to go all the way and back. not at all related to this incident, but made me think of it immediately.

I beleive DL has 5 full time gates at PDX, with another 5 CUTE in CC D that it could use.

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - 2017

I was driving by PDX around 11am today and saw an An-124 in Volga-Dnepr livery parked outside of flightcraft on the North Apron. I did not get a picture (as I was driving)- but it was a pretty cool rare treat. I see from Wikipedia its visited PDX before (this photo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ant...

Re: What happens to the removed person after they are removed from a flight?

I've wondered this as well. Two years ago I was on an EasyJet LGW-MUC flight where the entire row behind me (three lads) was forced off the plane before take-off for harassing people around them (it was 5am and they we're loud, drunk and rude). Security came and told them 'collect your things, you w...

Re: Catcalling Flight Attendants a No-No at Alaska

The bottom line is, it doesn't matter what all of us, or indeed anyone else in the entire universe thinks; If the flight attendant felt uncomfortable then she has zero obligation to tolerate it. I've seen another post from a friend on facebook who was on that flight, and they stated that the man in ...

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - Part 13

JL & BA are the two carriers that I would expect to make the first moves if this were to ever come to fruition. I know BA has shopped PDX before, the 787 is a perfect aircraft for the route, IMO. JL would be a better choice for PDX-NRT with feed on both ends (again if AS is in it). I think CX w...

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - Part 13

AS flies to FLL vs MIA & dropped MIA in favor of FLL. Concorse C will be just AA & AS, which it seems is about half of the movements here at PDX. AA had requested the gates at the end of C, which some speculated could be because AA wants to bring larger aircraft to PDX like the 321's. Other...

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - Part 13

I really think if we get a South Florida flight it'll be AS to FLL vs AA to MIA. AA just added LAX-PDX so that is the last add from them in a very long time here at PDX, they are showing PDX some love. Maybe a Seasonal n/s might be the correct way to test the waters properly, let's see if AS wants ...

Re: Oregon Aviation Thread - Part 12

If I'm not mistaken, concourse A was a part of phase 1 of expansion as outlined in the airport master plan. I wonder if plans will be unveiled during construction on the E extension or shortly after its completion. The current airport master plan has E and B concourses extended linearly away from t...

Re: PDX CC-E extended by 6 gates for Southwest

Makes sense over the proposal a few months ago that would have had Alaska move. I hope with the extension they will make E feel a little wider, current layout all the E gates feel so cramped upstairs especially with the moving walkways (that are unnecessary in this part of the airport) and concessi...

Re: Icelandair plans new Boeing 767 routes in W16

I wouldn't be surprised to see them use the two arriving 767 to start California service in the summer, maybe OAK or SJC to serve the Bay Area and SAN and/or LAX to serve Southern California? The PDX route has been doing very well at 4 days a week, and with WOW starting these routes it would seem th...

You're most welcome RWA380!....I just learned today that CC-E will be extended to the east about 750 feet, adding gate capacity of 6 additional gates at PDX. The originally design E extension was around 210 ft....... interesting, so with six gates spread out over 750 feet of frontage is about 125 f...

Re: EKA380: Who gets it first, SEA, ORD, BOS

I believe one of the reasons EK flies double daily B777 to SEA is to pick up replacement parts for their 777 fleet.

Replacing these flights with the A380 would yield more passenger space, but less cargo space (which is what they really want).

Portland (PDX) has year around one each flight to Europe and Asia. One of them may be subsidized. I suspect that there is a lot of value to the Portland metropolitan area of non-stop flights.

I wonder if the brexit vote will affect plans to start PDX-LHR service. I don't believe the DL route will be dropped, as it's seasonal, and the weaker pound will probably make the UK a more attractive destination for leisure travelers coming from the States. However it may not be a good omen for the...
