Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2019

I think we’re getting a tad ahead of ourselves here. Once A gets built to an L shape, BNA should be set. Instead of a new terminal, I’d expect a satellite terminal built where the expanded apron was recently filled in. You would get to it via a tunnel underground. https://www.flynashville.com/about...

In regards to WN's ATL flights, on average 3 of the 5 leave full.


Is that just a way of saying that the route has a ~60% LF (ie. 3 full, 2 empty) or is it that 3 of 5 are typically full and the other two are typically less than full?

I’d say 16M will be surpassed comfortably.


Interestingly load factors are actually down like 13% from last November. 72.9 vs 86.4.
