It's also worth remembering that not all rail connections are created equal. For some, the level of service on the rail line stinks. For others, the connection to and from the airport stinks. And some (like, say, FLL) both are bad (shuttle bus to an infrequent rail line). The best airport/transit l...Jump to post
With this route going year-round, how will the 787-8 utilization (Europe routes) look next summer?Jump to post
Rumor has it Aer Lingus will make an announcement of new service 9/12. MSP and YUL seem to be the hot topics for EI. I think Denver will be one of the cities announced tomorrow. Kim Day, CEO of Denver International Airport is giving a speech tomorrow night at a major civic function along with the m...Jump to post
I do see a DL addition to AMS or CDG. Word is that 7-8 of the new A gates are going to DL in addition to the ones they already have. This will bring them up to 13-14 gates in DEN if the rumor of them getting that many additional gates is true. With an operation that size in Denver, requiring that m...Jump to post

What’s their gate situation at DEN? Are they tapped out there or do they have room for growth? As with every schedule extension, I hope this is the time they add DSM-DEN. They also just started the seasonal DSM-PHX flight, I’d like to see them extend that to go daily and hopefully year round, but I...Jump to post
"Will provide nonstop service to a popular city in Denver's second largest international market"
Second largest international market is Canada. My guess is WS to their hub in Calgary in response to F9's recent announcement of Calgary-Denver service.
Could you imagine WN and EK together. It would create a global airline alliance overnight. And other than the technology challenges WN will have with anyone, I don't see why it wouldn't work. Not sure EK considers WN as a brand they want to associate with. Besides other than LAX not sure EK serves ...Jump to post
I don't think the issue is size of the city. It has to do more with a smaller percentage of business travelers out of MKE. Carriers will save mainline aircraft for markets with more business travelers. MKE is more of a leisure market.Jump to post

BA, Continental does not have a maintenance operation at DIA anymore. Mayor Webb killed that notion when he nixed allowing Continental to retain a maintenance operation at Stapleton after the opening of DIA. The Continental hanger you see at DIA is predominately leased by Frontier for their heavy C-...Jump to post
There was no bomb on that incident. A United 747-200 took off from HNL to NRT with an improperly closed cargo door. On climbout, door ripped off and tore a section of the upper fuseloge away. Mainly first and business class was impacted with I belive less than ten deaths. Pilot made a remarkable lan...Jump to post
Let's keep it in perspective here. May had fairly good weather, especially west of the Mississippi, they are not loading meals or snacks on the planes for coach passengers, load factors are stagnet at best and they are flying fewer widebodies domestically, which have a longer turnaround time on the ...Jump to post
BA, Prior to DIA opening in 1995, Continental amended their lease with city and only leased 20 gates for five years instead of twenty years. The five years were up in 2000 and Continental signed a new lease for three gates only on Concourse A. The city wanted to move Continental to the C Concourse i...Jump to post
America West cannot use the far west north gate on C (C31) as American has the lease and has transfered the old TWA St. Louis flights to that gate. RegardsJump to post
Can someone tell me why United has not reinstated Den-Hnl service? They used to run this route in the 80's with DC-10s and DC-8's. Seems to me the 777's could profitably handle this route. I know Continental used to run a DC-10-30 as well when they had a hub in Denver. Also, why would United ax the ...Jump to post
