Re: Boston aviation - 2018

Great news! Congrats to BOS on another milestone. The entrance of JJ to GRU probably really boosted the S. America numbers. I was surprised at the increase in European pax, quite an uptick from the previous year. Also, with BOS having 27,479,720 pax this year so far, we are 12,520,280 pax away from...

Re: Expansion At SFO

It is great that SFO is adding all these new gates in anticipation of additional flights. But until the environmental wackos and the NIMBY mentality changes, the airport which restricts flights daily and hasnt built a new runway, will still be a mess. But it sure will look pretty and new.
