LGA terminal B is probably the nicest terminal complex in America, and C is on its way. I don’t see how you can rationally call LGA the worst when EWR across the river (pre terminal 1) exists. LGA can build however nice a terminal it wants; it’s still full of New Yorkers and it’s still sandwiched b...Jump to post
Nobody is growing. This is a merge to consolidate capacity. The planes will become significantly less dense under the proposed merger removing hundreds of thousands of seats from the domestic market. Airlines also don’t compete with Spirit on price. It’s just Spirit and Frontier. Removing that comp...Jump to post
Gotta wonder how much easier a hypothetical AS/B6 merger would be to get through. They complement each other’s networks, you don’t eliminate any low-fare competition, they’re already One World so you can keep the NEA in some form. It always made the most intuitive sense to me.Jump to post
The B6/NK merger is a repeat of what AS did with VX. Following the merger AS has dumped the Airbuses (proudly all Boeing) and has dropped most if not all routes VX was flying. What the merger accomplished was to eliminate a competitor in the California (North Bay) market that AS wanted to grow in. ...Jump to post
What's the advantage of a glass jet bridge? I've never been on a jet bridge before and thought "gee, I wish I had a window right about now" Have you been on one that is all glass?

Can their A220s make PVD-LAX and PVD-LAS? Build out PVD a bit and they will have a firm footing the Boston CSA. They definitely have the transcon range to pull that off Range is one thing.

I’m hearing something about an all-new JetBlue livery coming in 2023. Not just a tail or a one-off, but new branding entirely.

That wouldn't make sense for fuel, given that SAN is actually 20 nm closer to BOS.
That's nice, but it's all hub flying. I was hoping AA might throw in a CLE-DUB feeder flight, like STL or even MCI. AA and IAG (EI's owner) are partners, after all. Wishful thinking, I guess.

CLE can likely support B6 nonstop service to JFK if B6 has extra slots available at JFK, and the other B6 cities in the Midwest (ORD/DTW/MCI/MKE/MSP) already have B6 nonstop service to JFK.

The A319ceo would allow B6 to retire the E190 fleet immediately while achieving crew & parts commonality with the rest of the A320ceo family. Of course, they’d be gradually phased out as more A220’s come on property. Wait, what? This merger isn’t going to happen that fast. By the time JetBlue w...Jump to post
With JetBlue due to receive 88 more A220’s, I think it would be a wise decision for them to get some of those ETOPS certified. That way, they could explore new transatlantic opportunities that may be too small (in passenger demand) for the A321LR’s. No way. Not with those tiny galleys and unreliabl...Jump to post
JetBlue needs more aircraft like yesterday. Then why are they so hellbent on getting rid of the E190s? With airfare up so much, they have to be making money. Keep them and run them into the ground. They *were* run into the ground. The 190’s are shredded to pieces inside and are absolute mx hogs.Jump to post

ANY DATES on B6 starting DCA to BOS on the a220? 190's are not retired? I suspect BOS-DCA and LGA will be the last routes served by the E90. Yep, don’t hold your breath. The E190 will be the workhorse in DCA for years to come. Literally the last routes the 190’s fly will be DCA and LGA to BOS.Jump to post

Awesome to see AS adding more service! This is what CLE needs to be focused on, not vaporware flights to Europe. Strengthen the domestic network and get current tenants to add more flights and/or bigger jets. That's a much more realistic goal for an airport/city of CLE's size.Jump to post
