Re: QUESTION: ICN Connections

If ICN's website is correct, 2 hrs should be enough. The only difference between T2->T2 and T2->T1 (or Concourse) is that you have to add ~15mins for the shuttle train time anyway. https://www.airport.kr/ap_lp/en/trn/intro/t2trnt2t1/t2trnt2t1.do (Note that this only applied in cases like yours.

Re: Boeing 737MAX Delivery/Production Thread - 2019

So most of these 737s have undergone most of the test flights prior to storage or just one to get it away from Renton? I cant wait to see how quickly they get through the backlog of deliveries. Hope to see them in the air soon!

QUESTION: ICN Connections

I tried looking through the searches but couldn't find a solid answer since the new terminal opened. I want to book from MSP-ICN-SGN on Delta MSP-ICN then Asiana ICN-SGN. The layover is 2hrs, Will this be enough to get from T2 to T1? Thanks in advance!

Re: Small airports with 24 hour commercial ops

Las Vegas is probably pretty close to a 24hr operation. lots of ULCC flights after 1am and bunches of early am flights

Re: Confirmed: EI to MSP and YUL in 2019

Most big airports do have reps that go out and build relationships with new airlines in order to attract service. Brian Ryks (CEO of the MAC) said the airport sent people to Southwest multiple times a year for 10+ years to attract service. Even Jetblue was 5+ years in the making. Im not sure if they...

Re: Will there ever be any daytime flights to or from South America

I dont mean to derail the conversation but I have always wondered why AA/DL/UA etc. sit for so long in GRU and GIG. But that was answered here, so thanks everyone for the great responses! Is this the same concept as Europe-CPT/JNB?

Re: Why wasn’t MSP relocated?

I believe that MSP is the right size for the current operation, If DL needs to grow im sure the MAC wont hesitate to throw F9 and NK back over to terminal 2 which is expandable (and they just added 2 new gates last year or 2 years ago.

Re: Why wasn’t MSP relocated?

St. Cloud seems to have been tried, but nothing good comes out of the service. UA had 3x daily CRJ2 flights to Chicago but that barely lasted a year. I'm surprised G4 still serves the city.

Re: Which airport is a hub for the most number of airlines?

My bet is Seoul ICN- hub for 9 airlines (Korean, Asiana, Jeju, Jin, FedEx, Polar air cargo, Air Incheon, Air Seoul, Eastar jet) and a focus city for 4 airlines (China Southern, Vietjet, Thai, and Air Angkor Airlines).

looks like PVG actually has more with a hub for 12 airlines and focus city for 1

It looks like their fleet shows future expansion with 1x 763 and 3x 752, so I guess these open skies birds will just get switched to LEVEL come July.

Re: New "seats"

My first though was that this would be ineffective anyways due to exit limitations even though most airlines don't come that close to the limit. Also, being 6.5ft tall, i dont even want to imagine what 23in pitch would be like. Spirits legroom is my limit.

Re: 2017 total passenger rankings for US large hub airports

Glad to see MSP rebounding to record levels! A little surprising to see 7% of passengers are Intl, I would have thought it was less, but given the numerous Mexico and Canada flights I shouldn't be surprised. Thanks to everyone who compiled this information! Excited to see what happens in 2018!
