A friend of mine who works at BNA is saying MNAA will be making a major announcement soon. Mid-summer seems an odd time to announce new service. Their last few emails are updates on the BNA Vision. I suspect if there's anything, it may be that. What would there be to announce as far as the BNA visi...Jump to post

I would not rule out LH. With the VW factory in Chattanooga there could be some basic biz demand. Same with the Mercedes factory in Tuscaloosa Not sure about that.

The lack of red-eyes has nothing to do with the WN pilot contract. What is the reason? I appreciate the correction, but let's take it a step further.. To get the reason for lack of WN red-eyes you would have to ask Gary Kelly as that is a management decision. All that I know is that the reason is n...Jump to post

The fact you think the business climate is better in IND and STL than BNA is laughable. Research and most media says you are wrong. Nashville is consistently in the top among corporate relocations, startups, and quality. If your two little cities were so special, you'd see more traffic at your airp...Jump to post
Wondering if STL-BRU makes sense on SN because of the Inbev Bud acquisition? One single corporation isn't going to cause an airline to begin service. All these cities in this thread, sooner or later will get their TATL services. Some may be BA, others DY, maybe DE. FI and WW would be in the mix as ...Jump to post
I'm not so sure the Frontier schedule change is insignificant. It appears to be a very significant business model change. Perhaps it is an error but there appears to be major changes in the works.

BNA continues to strike me as an obvious BA 788 route, and I personally think BNA-LHR is matter of when, not if. I spend 1/2 my time in Nashville, 1/2 in Dallas.

US never had a presence in ANC until the HP merger, when they flew ANC-LAS/PHX. They added PHL-ANC with a 752 for two seasons a couple of years back.

The only airport in the US with TWOV is ANC. Seeing as deep SA and east asia are practically antipodal, ANC on paper is the best connecting point in the US for those regions.

DFW is one of the largest hubs in the world already. Given that the ME3 runs all of their capacity through one hub, I think it's impressive where they are today.
