I suppose the multiple "A380 E Gates" are white elephants now? They never should have been built in the first place - rather 3 wide-body gates with dual jet bridges for 744/77W, etc. Really, apart from JFK and LAX, cities like Miami, Boston and Washington shouldn't have spent the money on...Jump to post

The only big cut to Massport's plan is phase 2 of the terminal E expansion. Phase 1, which adds 4 new wide-body gates, is still going on and this phase encompassed the vast majority of the expansion works anyways - new security screening, expanded CBP facilities, space for up to 4 new airline clubs,...Jump to post
Some pleasant surprises for PVD this morning in terms of NEW service which is something hard to come by right now... B6 is adding TPA and RSW ... says "up to daily" so might start as x23 in the fall ... that means they will be up to as many as 7 daily flights which should move them into a...Jump to post
Considering how hard TATL has been hit the last 7-8 weeks and how hard it will be hit the rest of 2020, I think it's a safe assumption that OS will not be launching VIE-BOS this year and probably not even 2021.. Who knows if they have given up the route completely, maybe they'll give it a shot for s...Jump to post
2-3 Years is extremely optimistic, this is far worse than 9/11 was from a demand perspective. I don't think you will see 2019 levels for at least 5 years. If there's a second wave in the fall, I suspect we will have at least 2 fewer major airlines (the big 4 likely intact) as result of mergers and/...Jump to post
The Logan Airport that emerges from this pandemic will be a vastly different place than the one that entered. Among other things, the E expansion seems to be rolling right along . Much easier with none of those pesky pax or planes in the way. My personal concern is going to be its future usage. Use...Jump to post

Remember when you chose Republic over them and they ran you out of your own hub?
How did that work out for you a decade later?
Still the dumbest move in recent US aviation history

AA does not run MIA-SEA twice daily year round, does this development mean they'l be able to run it at least twice daily year round now?Jump to post
In the span of a month or so, American has made some moves in Boston and now Seattle. This is great for the consumer.Jump to post

What on Earth drives so many flights out of BOS? Business? Connections? BOS isn't certainly among top destinations in US for tourism. Just wondering, I'm not familiar with BOS status...

Does JetBlue make any sort of response to Delta's moves in MIA? How long before we really see them beef up FLL-Western US ops? Something like: LAX - 6 daily year round SAN - 2 daily year round BUR - 1 daily year round SJC - 1 daily year round SFO - 4 daily year round PDX - 1 daily year round SEA - 2...Jump to post
No surprises here. MIA-ATL/DTW/MSP/LGA all each get bumped up by one daily flight, as well. I suspect resuming LAX and adding SEA are next. How about MIA-BOS? I would think it has to be somewhere within this strategy as well at some point. I think 2x daily 319s would serve the market well. Jeremy D...Jump to post
Nobody is arguing with you. Because I disagree does not = an argument. Do BOS-EU traffic numbers dip in the winter. Sure. Do they “fall off a cliff” - NO. Airlines don’t extend service year round on routes that fall off a cliff. Let’s just be real - MIA absolutely sees this also. Look at London for...Jump to post
In 2020, I don't think we're going to see a whole lot of international expansion. I think we might see some carriers either cut service all together, or go down to seasonal. I can only see Delta adding some more Western Europe routes using 752s - Brussels being a prime target. Domestic side we won't...Jump to post
Is it common airlines have finalized their long haul winter ‘20 schedules already. Perhaps OS just hasn’t updated or loaded those flights? As for BOS-Europe falling off a cliff we can agree to disagree on that one. Over the years we’ve seen carriers like AZ, IB, TP all go year round in BOS when the...Jump to post
I flew AA out of Boston for the first time in a while yesterday (I'm typically DL) and I was amazed at what they've done with terminal B. High ceilings, tons of windows & natural light, beautiful architecture, and tons and tons of dining and drinking options. Noticed that the Admirals lounge ha...Jump to post
They said they ‘needed’ to be in Boston. But at what cost? They might turn planes quickly there...right into a long conga line of other jets. They’re up against B6 and DL, who have Massport’s ear. WN doesn’t. I don’t see the net gain for them. To satisfy their business passengers. Saying we service...Jump to post

Isn't Boston United's largest non-hub station? Assuming this were to all happen, they would have a complete stranglehold on the very large and lucrative Boston - San Francisco market.Jump to post
Northeast less than daily seems like little risk.

Not sure of the reason, but they don't readily post monthly passenger numbers. S...Jump to post
AC has been operating a seasonal YVR-BOS for three summers now. The flight times of YYC-BOS will complement the YVR flight nicely as BOS bound passengers from YVR can either fly nonstop in the morning or connect through YYC in the late afternoon. But it should be year-round!! Twenty years ago CP ha...Jump to post
Are A and E not connected behind security? That's pretty suboptimal for those connecting from Delta on to AF, AZ, VS, and KL codeshares. Not at present. Massport will get around to building a post security connection between A and B which would allow someone to walk post security from terminal A to...Jump to post
Yes (great article btw). The long term macro-economic trends point to more of this. And when you dig into the demographics beneath gross population, it's even more pronounced.

LAX is PVD’s largest unserved market but the distance and the general focus on BOS by most airlines are hurdles to that service ever happening.

^ which shows that when PVD has decent service to a strong destination, it does a good job of being a support airport to the region. Given that, it would be sensible at least, for B6 to consider providing token (1x and/or seasonal) service from PVD to their largest BOS markets. RSW, TPA, JFK as exa...Jump to post

We don't need a Boston vs. Miami fight in this thread. Miami will get non-stop service to East Asia eventually. Miami is not even mentioned as a potential flight - it's simply too far from Singapore and would easily be the longest flight in the world.Jump to post
