PHL doesn't have the O&D of JFK, EWR, or even BOS. This is not a gaping hole in DL/AF/KL service. That is an extremely inaccurate statement. Are you telling me that much smaller cities like PIT, CVG, RDU, etc. have more O&D? The main reason is that AA/OneWorld dominate at PHL making it toug...Jump to post
These days when you search for fares it doesn't seem to matter whether you need to buy two separate tickets with different airlines, the fare searches will show you the cheapest route. What search engines are showing two separate tickets? Care to post an itinerary? It's consumer disaster waiting to...Jump to post
Who even cares, or needs a reason for delays less than 20 minutes? It's aviation. Delays less than 30 minutes are non-events, unless you have a connecting flight to catch. The OP did have a flight to catch. Also, this isn't in enroute delay. Sitting at a gate, with no information, with no idea of w...Jump to post
UA is hardly "ditching" EWR-OKC. They run the route seasonally every year April-December. 2020 will be the same. Given how they’ve never promote this route like their others out of here and can’t seem to sustain anything besides this yearly seasonal service to their biggest trans Atlantic...Jump to post
Nothing about their BGO-SWF service so I wonder if that could be moved back to JFK as previously the flight was operated from JFK for 3 years. Incorrect. They operated Saturday only service for one summer. The results were limited local traffic, the majority were onward connections from BGO-Europe....Jump to post
Well they should start by calling out on their own partners, like DL. Do we really need 24 crjs a day in a route, instead of bigger AC and less frequency just because Alan the business man with the small wiener will throw a fit if he doesnt have 1600 options a day to go back and forth in his meetin...Jump to post
I guess all of those $780 business MQD runs from JFK to UIO hurt their yields.Jump to post

SWF-DUB isn't removed. It's actually sold out. The planned April traffic from SWF to Ireland a total of 16 flights per week. 11x weekly to DUB and 5X weekly to SNN.

The routes from SWF are not being cut. The base is being closed.

Delta recently started nonstop service from JFK to PDL (Ponta Delgada - Azores) utilizing the 757 with D1 service. The fight is just under 6 hours. There is no D1 service on this route. It's Premium Select, Comfort Plus, and Economy. I was on the inaugural. Also, I have the ability to say I was the...Jump to post
United proving yet again they can't compete in the Northeast. Your statement doesn't match reality. Reality is that United is the #1 carrier in New York City. And New York City is the #1 market in the Northeast. EWR isn't NYC. Not even in the same state. UA doesn't even serve JFK, and only serve IA...Jump to post
DL cannot sell AMS-MCO-GRU tickets I don't think as it would most definitely require a US visa for certain travelers.

I worked for Piedmont when I was in college, 2005-2007. The pay was obviously low, but it worked for me as a student living at home. I remember one of the silliest things was that my starting rate was $7.84 an hour. They announced that starting pay was going up to $8.00 effective January 1. So, when...Jump to post
That reserve system sounds horrific!

The immediate catchment area of Nassau and Suffolk counties is huge a wealthy. For various reasons, those passengers tend to leak to LGA and JFK. Airline loyalty, schedule, price, nonstops, etc. Legacy carriers offering a few RJ flights to a nearby hub, likely at a higher fare, will often fuel that ...Jump to post

I believe a large part of the mentality in trying to hold AA/UA at least in part responsible was because pre-9/11, the airlines were responsible for handling airport security, not the Federal govt. as it is post-9/11.

I guess we won’t see the Air Zimbabwe 767 at SWF any more. Someone in the government likes to go shopping at Woodbury Commons apparently.

I think that this is a generally positive change, depending on what DL's pricing will be. We'll see if DL is able to make it work. I would never pay for a domestic first class seat to SEA, LAS or SAN, absent a really reasonable buy up offer because the product simply isn't worth it. I'd rather play ...Jump to post

I'm certainly disappointed that YQB is going away. We were supposed to go there for Valentine's Day 2016. The flights were, at that point, 2x daily on CR7. It turns out that weekend was insanely cold (we're talking -60s with wind chill), and our flights were oversold. They paid us $1200 each to bump...Jump to post
Who doesn't love an argument on semantics? At least in the context of SWF, it isn't semantics. There was a formal petition filed with IATA to incorporate SWF into the metropolitan definition of NYC. In the end, this petition was supported by the FAA, and in September 2015, SWF was adopted into the ...Jump to post

Delta has scaled up its operation at EWR over the years and operates out of one of the Terminal B rotundas all to itself. A bit surprised to see this route downgraded to a 757 even for time considered a bit slower during the year. Um, no. Delta has slowly decreased gauge across the board from EWR. ...Jump to post
This is so sad to me. I worked for USAirways at the time of the HP merger.

Sabre was far superior to shares for a lot...Jump to post
