Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

I'm wondering whether Boston will suffer all that much when a recession hits? I just get the sense that the drivers for economic growth and stability are more broad and rock-solid than they were, say, in 2008-2009. What do you guys think? I'm figuring DL thinks as much, that BOS can weather the sto...

I would expect non-preclear Caribbean to move over there as well. 3. If there is a bus, my guess is its a one-way only shuttle...and its fo...
