(After Eastern was) I think DL was the dominant carrie...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

5600 feet. In that case, is the paving of the safety areas really necessary to attract additional service? SNA is 5700' and obviously sees a wide array of commercial service; EYW is 5000' and while that presents challenges, carriers have found the right aircraft to make it work. I've never been all...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

So what will that now give HVN for usable runway length for takeoffs in each direction? 5600 feet. In that case, is the paving of the safety areas really necessary to attract additional service? SNA is 5700' and obviously sees a wide array of commercial service; EYW is 5000' and while that presents...

Re: Delta opens Concourse G at LGA

It looks nice, good for DL. I will say though, I'm going to miss the new part of the current Terminal C (the old US Airways terminal). I find it very bright and I have always liked the vibe in there. It's also in far better shape than any of the pre-rebuild LGA terminals. I'm not sure why it has to ...

Re: Boston Aviation Thread - 2019

All good points, but LA controls the POS from bog and Brazil’s. I don’t think there is enough revenue delta to get pos revenue from Boston. Also I would argue that delta has a better product for the bos-gru flight. B6 mint 2.0 isn’t out yet, and their current mint product is noted as the better pro...

Re: Updated: DL to fly from BOS to LGW and MAN, seasonally FCO as well as 2nd daily flight to CDG

DL had a foothold in both SEA and BOS due to prior NW hubs. Their expansion out of SEA has been arguably successful but not at the expense of AS...it's everyone else but AS that has lost market share. DL is smart to build on the prior TATL routes flown by NW out of BOS. But like AS in SEA, BOS cons...
