Speaking of airport renovations, someone recently posted this video of SYR renovations to Youtube and it has some footage of the aviation exhibit I was involved with. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1Kbalzfw-Y Good video. SYR's renovations look really nice. It's too bad they didn't keep the histor...Jump to post
Something interesting (and perhaps somewhat telling) regarding United’s involvement is that when it came time to bid RJ’s flying for Presque Isle the bid was from United for UA* RJ service to Newark. And it’s been Commutair which has been flying it, not Skywest (who doesn’t fly UA* at EWR) nor Skyw...Jump to post
So they are retiring the routes completely? Would it not make sense to just replace with CRJ 200s? Guess these markets won't support the upgauge to CRJ or even DH8. Right now, they have about 60-80 seats per day. It would have been nice to keep 1-2x CRJ or DH8. It was a nice option out of SYR to co...Jump to post
I hope they're not waiting to finish the Pratt powered 777s before starting the GE-90 777s, the 224s fly some long routes and could use the new Polaris and PE refurbishments. It I'll be interesting how the 777 fleet utilization might change chatter the FA groups are kfinally merged. Think the Pratt...Jump to post
UA444 you don't think things are out of wack? Is this the way to success? AA =>70 seats 386, 50 seats 198 , 66% large RJ DL =>70 seats 335, 50 seats 134 , 71% large RJ UA =>70 seats 255, 50 seats 356 , 42% large RJ I’m all for dumping more 50 seaters, however, there are still too many UAX flights o...Jump to post
AA is building quite the domestic network with adds over the past few weeks/months.Jump to post
If they are sitting at the gate IAH and not having maint check performed, then indeed it's wasted time. Most likely they're towed away for checks. And they also provide spare capability and routing flexibility (IAH/IAD) and to cover if something breaks or is late. Of course, that's only if the airc...Jump to post
Regarding the older 763's, someone on one of the threads said that Kirby was not a fan and wanted to get new a/c to phase those out ASAP. Any truth to that rumor? That would certainly shut off any discussion on the lie flat 763's getting Polaris. Its well known the 763 fleet is getting old and havi...Jump to post

Hopefully based on this, there is more to come.
If it is not Southwest, I can't see why they would be building it up this much. The only other thing that I can think of that would warrant this much build up is Europe service with Norwegian https://twitter.com/MegsNewsFlash/status/979807903954685953?s=20 Doesn't look like it based on this reporte...Jump to post

Another tweet. Does this mean likely no announcement today?
Private plane coming in from Love Field is heading back to Dallas this evening.

SYR just tweeted this. Any clue what this refers to? Renovations? New routes? New airline?
That is sad. I am glad to see so many E170/175's, but not one daily mainline flight? UA grows and then shrinks, and despite what they say about wanting to grow domestic capacity 5-6%, they don't seem to have their hearts in it. DL and AA both have mainline at SYR. At least there are no CR2's in the...Jump to post
Was just checking out the major airlines's summer SYR schedule (based on a weekday in June). AA BOS - 1x (1x E40) PHL - 5x (2x E75, 3x E45) DCA - 3x (1x E75, 2x CRJ) ORD - 4x (2x E75, 2x CR7) CLT - 4x (2x 319, 1x CR9, 1x CR7) B6 BOS - 1x (1x E90) JFK - 2x (2x E90) MCO - 1x (1x E90) DL JFK - 3x (1x C...Jump to post
I think this is a common problem for all airports in NY state. Buffalo / BNIA has only recently been recovering from the airline mergers from a few years ago with the addition of Frontier, Jet blue expanding to LA, Southwest in Florida, Cancun / Punta Cana flights, OneJet albany flights and so on. ...Jump to post

UA and OO turned down YNG when they had a SCASD grant for it. They definitely aren't going there without the grant money (which was subsequently squandered in a month by Aerodynamics Inc.) Yes, ORD-TOL was in the running - I think UA just decided that splitting such a weak market (in addition to th...Jump to post
A close friend of mine had to book a flight to BOM at the last minute. He had to do UA. AI EWR-BOM and AC YYZ-BOM are both sold out. However UA EWR-BOM has ~50 open seats. Definitely contradicts my prior assumption that AI wasn't well suited for EWR nonstop. I would imagine nearly all O/D use AI fr...Jump to post
It has less content than much of the fleet with newer IFE (77W, 757PS, 767) and does not have early window content that the in seat entertainment has. My last two flights on the 777HD, PDE was inoperable. And there are issues with Android depending on the fleet type. The same here. My device works ...Jump to post
Omg. No seatback IFE. Get real people. The streaming IFE is much better anyways. It features much more (better) content.
