Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

Calling Nashville a "third-tier" city is pretty comical and completely invalidates your argument. The city is a booming business city and has long-cemented itself as a tourism destination that continues to grow its int'l side. BNA is planning for a better future and more int'l flights tha...

Delta pilot confirmed to me that Delta has chosen CDG as the European destination from BNA. Take that information as you will. Not saying your wrong, but pilots aren’t the best source of information.

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2019

I don’t see this happening at all. They won’t go up against WN on those routes and they’d likely lose a ton of money. I don't interpret it this way, this isn't like DL would be trying something like PHX-DFW; BNA, MCO, MSY, and to a lesser extent AUS all are sizable stations for DL. Furthermore, DL ...

Wow. NK is being somewhat aggressive here. Taking advantage while WN can’t respond as effectively due to the MAX. Will BNA cross the 20 million pax mark next year? I think there’s a good chance. With the new service starting, concourse D adding 6 more gates in the summer and if the MAX gets back in...

WN to SMF, SJC, ONT or SNA, ABQ, and PDX would be great from BNA. If SNA was to be in the mix, which city would lose a flight to allow BNA? Keep in mind they have also lost some slots/seats the past couple of years, and with the capacity limitations it is not as easy as bring in the B738 instead of...

Are B and C losing two or three gates to accommodate the IAB? I heard three each, then heard two. They will both lose three according to the EIS and will be replaced with the six new gates on the new IAB, which will be wide body capable. I wish they would get going on the permanent IAB because BNA ...
