DL1631 from LAX-DCA (757) went to GSO

I remember back in the 80s, USAir operated a couple of flights on the south side of B, maybe B9, B11. The red tail really stuck out with all of those white UA tails.
I guess UA has the ground handling contract instead of US operating out of D at the time with all of the ‘other’ airlines.
Here’s the Denver page of the OAG from 1991 and 1995. Domestic only in ‘91 and in ‘95, the only international was MEX.
The passengers connecting for SIN are probably Lenovo-related as they have a sizeable presence in Singapore along with their Raleigh/Durham and Beijing main campuses I know of a couple of companies based in the Greensboro area that travel to SIN and drive to RDU to shorten travel time, the same way...Jump to post
Nope, PMAA flew to ABE from ORD. It stared in June 2010 and ended by 2011. I really had to look it up for myself, but in case you’re interested. http://news.aa.com/news/news-details/2010/American-Eagle-Airlines-Launches-Service-to-Four-New-Cities-From-DallasFort-Worth-International-Airport/default....Jump to post
However, in many similar sized markets AA tends to try to take your first born for a nonstop to PHL. If they do that I’m sure a good percentage of travelers will continue driving to CLT and BNA/ATL, respectively. Are you really saying that rather than flying direct through PHL, Charleston flyers wi...Jump to post
They also relaunched ORD-ABE today 2x daily, equipment hasn’t been announced or loaded into their website. UA is running it 3x daily with Air Wisconsin I do believe. They operated this route on an ERJ-145 (I think) before or right after the merger. It may of only lasted one year, very short lived. ...Jump to post
I recollect it being blue It was completely separate and accessible via Island Ave. It was not a very nice place.

The majority of teams are still located in the Charlotte area, and flying is an even larger part of their operations as the series has spread out. Roush Racing used to own a couple of 727s which they used to shuttle crew members to races, operating out of CLT. Jack sold those a couple of years ago....Jump to post
CYS is an annual winter ski route that comes and goes every year. There's no skiing anywhere near CYS unless you're on skis holding a rope and being pulled on the streets by a pickup truck.

I was a little uncomfortable with the exits on the F-100 in case of an emergency. You had the overwing exits around row 11-14 depending on the configuration, but the plane had no exits in the aft, unlike other T tail mainline jets of the time like the DC-9, MD-80, 727.Jump to post
ABE’s expansion was different. The old airside was very cramped at certain times of the day, especially in the AM. This was pre-RJ era with more mainline jets when the expansion came. US had 3 mainline RONs with one jetway & they would park from where the DC9 is to the UA 727 (on the B&W pic...Jump to post

Nice adds for UA and ILM. The market shouldn't be a problem. UAX used to serve ILM several years ago. My guess is four flights daily, either 2x to each city or 1x ORD, 3x IAD on CR2s. https://www.facebook.com/flyilm [quote="klwright69] Is F9 still at the airport?[/quote] F9 didn't serve Wilming...Jump to post
Maybe MEM but that’s too close to ORD. Anywhere else is too close to IAH. UA really had not much SE presence before it merged with CO.

There are a couple of things here not being thought about with suggestions of DL or AA flying mainline jets into HHH. - There are no close alternate airports to EYW whereas HHH has SAV not that far away with lots of additional flight options. - HHH has a lot more visitors driving (think MYR) from lo...Jump to post

It was a scheduled charter stop in CLT entire to ARN. The flight didn't depart until after midnight. The FB Plane Spotting CLT page has the visit well documented.

Is this the first time AA will fly CLT-TUL / OKC 3x daily? Seems these routes are doing well! Both TUL/OKC were never flown by US metal in ages and ages.

Barring a prop replacement at Piedmont or another American Eagle carrier, going to HH on AA will end up through Savannah. I wouldn't be surprised to see Via Air flying into HHH one day with the EMB-120, with their buildup in Charlotte over the last year or two.Jump to post

With US flying Euro Routes from CLT, it made more sense for US to take over LON & FRA routes.

WN couldn't even secure gate space until they inherited FL's gate(s) during the merger. Southwest could have come into CLT whenever they wanted to.
