Storms in IAH, I assume? Is this the first time an A380 has diverted to AUS?
Thanks for the replies. I'm not familiar with the gate numbering system at AUS. I understand you not wanting to get dragged into an Anet. Controversy ( some folks on here sure make it hard to have fun discussions). Does this mean DL. will be getting 8 gates altogether? So 5 additional gates for the...Jump to post
Its been @ a week since new gates opened and no one has given us any info on who is getting them, and how many ( particularly DL ). Has it been decided the total they are getting? When will the new Sky Club open? No word on the sky club. Contractors are working on it though. Just for clarification,...Jump to post
Doesn't the FAA cap how much growth they are allowed to anticipate? The FAA limits master plans to a maximum of 4.5% growth per year. I had no idea; thank you for this. What's the logic behind such caps, though? I'm not certain but I would hazard a guess that it's to prevent airports from projectin...Jump to post
On contrast, those BA numbers look great. Alaska is continuing to grow. SAN goes mainline April 1. SJC goes mainline Aug 26. Lots of adds this year have the airport bursting at the seams. Right, expansion needs to be put into overdrive, the airport needs to eventually quit playing catch up. Februar...Jump to post
A few things: Recent rumor from a Delta pilot was Delta would get 5 of the new nine gates. Different source said Southwest would get 2 gates (presumably two left behind by Delta). Gates will start being renumbered in late summer starting on the West end of the terminal and moving to the east end. Th...Jump to post
And it's not just Austin. The I-35 corridor from San Antonio to north of Austin had been expanding rapidly. New Braunfels, for example, had a little over 30k population 10 years ago but is now over 60k. The other towns in between Austin and San Antonio are growing at similar paces. The San Marcos ma...Jump to post
Can someone remind me when BA upgauges LHR to a 744 at AUS? I recall it was early 2018 (March?). I'm trying to figure out if I should be at the gate when the first 744 arrives. What I struggle with is the ongoing (and much needed) expansion of the east pier. My AUS-MEX roundtrip last month on AM ma...Jump to post
Here is my analysis on what NK could do if they choose to ever open AUS, which IMO is near. I’ve wondered why NK hasn’t come in yet. Alliegiant seems to be doing very well. Another thing I’ve been curious about—F9 was among the original group of carriers who lobbied to be able to move to a reopened...Jump to post
