I don't think RDU wants to extend the parking until they get two things - one is money, and the second is the land. The land will come when the car rental counters are consolidated - then they can extend the parking lots. The tie up of them not being able to lease the land for mining is only hurtin...Jump to post
I'd think F9's east coast hub at Raleigh Durham is much larger than PHL or anything in the Northeast, and that with the 30 cities they do from RDU that airport would make the most sense for Europe flights, if that's what this order is for...Jump to post
"The new runway will cost an estimated $350 million and will be 1,500 feet longer than the existing one, to ensure that a fully-loaded and fueled plane bound for Asia could safely take off." RDU needs to build the longer runway for future growth. Asia will be flying more planes than the U...Jump to post
Also from the article they revealed Neeleman plans to base Moxy near a tech center that is not Silicon Valley. My guess is going to be RDU or GSO.

I was at the new Austin SkyClub this morning and one of the women who works there told me that DL is launching AUS-AMS this year, as well as "more direct flights" (none specified) when and if they are able to get full access to the new gates that they currently share with AS/BA/LH/NK etc ...Jump to post

It amazes me that CHS goes via LHR but TPA goes via LGW. Nothing against CHS but I would have thought TPA would have a higher premium market than CHS. CFL in general is cursed with tourism.

My above answer was just a rough definition, but DL is inconsistent with how they view hubs/focus cities. BOS in many ways functions as a hub, even though it officially is a focus city based on publicly available info. Did they refer to BNA as a focus city in that presentation? Yes. BNA is a focus ...Jump to post

they are still selling tickets into the summer for regularly scheduled commercial flights out of Sanford, FL. Maybe other places, too. I just played around with the calendar and a couple cities. Nothing from Austin which looked like a "hub" so who knows.Jump to post
It isn't something that can be quantified in data but I will tell you anecdotally that nonairline people know Delta because of PTV and mood lighting.

I know the numbers suggest otherwise, but people in GSO just seem to be trained to accept the drive to either CLT or RDU for cheaper flights.

Oh wait, Delta is the one doing this. Never mind, I was going to say this is horrible, but Delta can do no wrong.

Who has an issue with the good ole CFA? Chick-Fil-A continues to give large sums of money to organizations that oppress the LGBT community.
