Sometimes I’ll take my kids to the Cornelia Fort Park and play “airplane,” where we go to the runway and I sprint while pushing the stroller and push down on the back to lift their legs up, all while making airplane sounds, thus simulating a takeoff. So it’s not completely out of commission as an ai...Jump to post
If 2L is indeed going to be extended over Murfreesboro Pike, what happens to the old Genesco and Johnston and Murphy buildings? They are extremely close. Knight Valley Drive will also have to be rerouted. Genesco would be retained, Johnston and Murphy removed. Knight Valley would be closed as would...Jump to post

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.

I'll ask this again since it seemed to get lost in the shuffle before.

Unlike BNA-ATL, where it is connecting a midsized market to a top 10 market, BNA-IND is a route connecting two mid-sized markets of similar size. As such, I cannot imagine there is a ton of O&D between the cities, so a WN 737 may be too much plane. That said, connections may be needed to make t...Jump to post
Is anyone else’s OCD alarms going off due to the fact that we were like 4000 short of 16 million?
In all seriousness, great numbers. With business additions, regional population growth, and continued airline investment at BNA its bound to continue rising for some time.
Just dummy booked one of Sun Country’s LAX flight, it’s a 9:25 PM departure from BNA (11:55 LAX arrival) on a Monday and a red eye back from LAX on a Friday. Cheap, but terrible times. I didn’t try any other times, I don’t have the patience for Sun Country’s terrible mobile website.Jump to post

I’d say 16M will be surpassed comfortably.

Their twitter post about it says 3 destinations, two of them new to BNA. I’d have to say G4.

I didn’t realize this will only be BUR’s 4th location east of the Mississippi, with ATL on DL to follow as the 5th a month later. The others are MDW, BOS, and JFK. Kind of impressive that we’re one of such a select group of eastern cities serviced from a California airport.Jump to post
