I think naming Detroit the best connecting hub from this study is a bit of a stretch. I'm not saying that Detroit is not a good connecting hub, but this study was not ranking best airports to connect in. The study was ranking airports by passenger satisfaction. The six criteria included "termin...Jump to post
I’m about to get on a 767 to Geneva from EWR. The old BF seats I’m sure. Really wondering where those true Polaris 767’s are flying? It seems like most premium heavy TATL are 764’s? Do true Polaris 767’s ever fly from IAD? I was wondering myself if any destinations saw the Polaris 763's significant...Jump to post

Wow! United is actually considering adding two banks to Dulles to make a total of six banks. Maybe a new mid-afternoon and mid-morning bank?

I wouldn't be so sure EWR-FCO is as busy this summer as in the past. I've noticed many dates available for Saver Economy seats on United's EWR/IAD/ORD-FCO flights for the month of August (ditto for AC on YYZ-FCO). IAD-FCO used to be operated by a B772 during high summer season and a 767 during spri...Jump to post
According to the tweet below. The plane diverted due to a medical situation and then the pilots timed out.

This AI DEL-IAD flight seems to be hurting the ME3 already. EK DXB-IAD is now on a 77W (it used to be A380), and I would imagine the loads on EY and QR are dipping as well. Does anybody have figures on this? The fact that AI upgraded IAD to 77W shows that this route must be performing well. As said...Jump to post
Skywest may start serving SHD ( Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport in Staunton, Virginia) to either IAD or ORD if the DOT approves it.

With the 2017 upon us and the changes on-going with airlines dropping certain team charters, I figured it's time to start getting flight info, airlines, equipment and flight numbers for the teams.

According to United's website the SFO-ZRH flight will get in at 10:10AM but is scheduled to depart for SFO before than at 9:50AM. Currently no other United flight to ZRH are on the 787. Maybe IAD-ZRH will go from 767 to 787 since IAD will become a 787 base in late October. It's possible that UA woul...Jump to post
