BOS is growing at 6.67%. IAH and MCO > 7% also standout.
I imagine that - like their arrangement with UA at ORD - WN has a deal with somebody at DFW to handle any diversions. I don't know who that somebody is but others might. It's somewhat less of an issue at IAH and DFW than at ORD because HOU and DAL have more runway length than MDW. And at other airp...Jump to post
Having lived in ELP for nearly 20 years and not a native I can tell you ELP is unique in terms of buying tickets. Could be airline, sports, or concerts...the first tickets to sell out are the cheapest ones. Last minute walk up only have premium tickets left. Never lived anywhere else that was like t...Jump to post

Don’t worry, soon High Pressure System KaPowee will push it out of the area. Winter storm Ivory will be right on its heels. What a stupid concept of naming winter storms. Screw the Weather Channel. TWC has left no stone unturned in their effort to dumb down weather. It doesn't matter who owns them ...Jump to post
Private Jet flying might see a pinch someday. Airlines are public transportation of the skies. On a per person basis I would think the Airlines are more efficient than Private jets. Of course the folks flying Private have more political influence than us commoners.Jump to post
1. The El Paso economy is dominated by federal spending. US Customs/Border Patrol, The El Paso Intelligence Center, Fort Bliss, Biggs AAF. If the government reduces spending on those areas the El Paso economy goes down as well. 2. A non spanish speaking american would probably feel too uncomfortable...Jump to post

Man oh man, I would love to see UA launch some more destinations within Texas like ACT, TYR, and ABI. I think DL could try and launch ATL/SLC-MAF to capture oil traffic. Given all that Kirby has said about reclaiming home turf, you'd think they'd have done just that. Instead, it's IAH-CAK, IAH-DAY?...Jump to post

Well it went from 10 banks to 8, so that should be the case.

Article mentions that Sun Country seasonally served TUS from MSP back in 2008 through 2010.
The "backgrounding" of the passenger by United is what disturbs me most about this incident. Unless we have a perfect background we best not complain or all our mistakes in life will be given to the media and used against us. The cops were awful in this ordeal as well, but I am only commen...Jump to post
The all time record for pax traffic at IAH was 2015 at 43.0 million..they did 41.6 million in 2016. How is that "a much smaller hub"? As recently as 2013 they had 39.8 million.Jump to post
Back in the old days the FSS guys used to read SNA as "Santa Ana John Wayne Orange County." Who are the FSS guys? I remember US Airways in the mid nineties listed it as Santa Ana which I thought was strange, as a long time resident I have never referred to it as that or heard anyone in OC...Jump to post
