Re: Delta Network Thread - 2021

I wouldn't be surprised to see ATL - ATH return seasonally now that JFK - ATH is year-round again. I was also quite surprised to see this go year-round in the current context. I guess DL sees potential for leisure/VFR traffic, with some business routes taking longer to recover. ATL-ATH would be a n...

For Delta, their presence in AUS historically has been limited. If all ...

Re: The Rest of New England Aviation Thread (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2020

Comparing ORH's level of service to...almost anywhere else is setting a pretty low bar. Concluding that "the market is good" based on the fact that HVN has an extra flight to PHL over ORH isn't really convincing or saying much. As I've said before, the runway issue is a red herring at thi...

Re: Air Georgian heading towards bankruptcy protection in Canada

Having done a lot of 1900 flights, BDL-YUL, it’s better to drive. It takes as long, the fares are ridiculous—$800+ and the reliability was terrible. The last time I did it—it cancelled in snow (YUL origination); next day, sold out, rebooked thru YYZ. Missed and TWO connect due to customs and securi...

I don't remember AA cutting flights in the past, HVN is down to 2x daily to PHL (Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Friday) and 1x daily (Saturday, Tuesday, Wednesday) for January/February. CLT remains at 1x SAT only. https://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article/tweed-airport-flights-cut-back-amid-push-for-enha...

Re: Future of YUL

Given that the city will only become more populous in the future, perhaps YMX will once again become a commercial airport. Maybe the idea was right, just the timing was wrong. I seriously doubt it. The old terminal was taken down a few years ago, and portions of the land expropriated for the airpor...
