Too bad BNA makes connecting passengers go thru TSA. LOL LOL
DL views focus cities as having frequent service to most hubs. P2P doesn't factor into Delta calculations. By that measure, wouldn't MSY be a focus city? It has multi-frequencies to all hubs except SEA.... DL is falling behind, though, as AA is now the largest legacy carrier at MSY and UA is buildi...Jump to post

To me Delta is redefining the term focus city and applying it liberally to get some free press. Get back to me when they start announcing routes that would suggest a real focus city. RDU and CVG fit the definition in my mind, but I haven't seen anything apart from larger Sky Clubs to suggest a DL f...Jump to post
Hey Lexy - WN would not be flying 129-140 daily departures without significant connecting traffic. BNA has 32k departing seats/day and a CSA population of 2.1M. To fill all those seats that means everyone in the CSA needs to take 5.5 departing flights every year...... Business + Tourism/Conventions...Jump to post

It’s pointless to have one in RDU just as much as it is at BNA. They control the business contracts here and do well with front and back loads. The one thing we’ve got that RDU doesn’t, tourist. That makes it a bit more lucrative. I actually ran into Oscar in Chicago and asked about a UA club. His s...Jump to post
AA isn’t going to do anymore than they absolutely have to here. Mainline will not come back BTW due to union contracts and other issues. DL will likely expand more here and talk of a TATL flight is all over the Ramp. Time will tell, but I seriously doubt WN really cares what DL does in the grand sch...Jump to post

The planes themselves are fine... It's the fact that they're 50-seaters flying into the most congested airspace in the world that's a problem.
I'd add to this that UA has changed considerably at BNA, with quite a bit of mainline service. Not so long ago we were lucky to see the E170. I know we still get them, but’s it’s been awhile since I’ve actually seen a UA 50 seater at BNA. Today 3 of 5 UA EWR-BNA flights are 50 Seat ER-145's And the...Jump to post
A new terminal will likely go east of 20L-2R inbetween that runway and the "new" planned runway east of Donelson Pike. The FBO's and other "things" will go away and be moved to either a new part of the field or John Tune. The crosswind will be removed. This has been the rumor for...Jump to post
"Why isn't it already? Is it because of ATL's status as a former FL hub? It would make more sense to focus on BNA as it is a bigger market and they are likely bleeding money to DL in ATL. I would cut ATL down to O&D flying only and move the cut flights to BNA. IMO, no reason BNA can't some...Jump to post
DFW is my hometown airport and this happens almost so routinely it is comical. The gate employees there at ANY time of the day are notoriously lazy and incompetent and the ramp people the same. It never seems to happen with the frequency or regularity at other US airports. Hey if given a chance fly...Jump to post
What are the chances LH comes to BNA at some point? BNA-PARIS is more likely. I don’t know about that. I still have serious doubts that DL would be inclined to launch that route. Maybe if they order the 797, but not anytime in the near future. What are the largest European cities that BNA has O&...Jump to post
Most of it except WN will probably be O&D in Nashville. You’d be surprised. There’s international connections happening daily. BA pax connecting to AA flights and vice versa? Or maybe AC pax connecting on UA flights? That and UA to AC or AA to WS or whatever. It happens more than you’d think.Jump to post
I'll ask this again since it seemed to get lost in the shuffle before. Will the new international customs facility that will be built in the center of the airport have a recheck facility to accommodate connecting passengers, or does BNA anticipate all international traffic being O&D? Most of it...Jump to post
They finally updated data for Nov. 1,409,968 passengers for the month, up 15.1% over PY. 14,688,075 Nov 2018 YTD. I’d say 16M will be surpassed comfortably.

SOP, however, is no brake release until push clearance is received. Not every ramp is controlled. Therefore it's a push at a pushback drivers discretion. Brakes off are how it's recorded.

Was curious if anything odd was going on at BNA today around 13:00. I was going north on Briley, stopped at the Vultee Blvd. traffic light.

Impressive gains for BNA. 124 departures M-S and 133 departures on Sunday. This is what happens when you become a Focus City.

Is there a high demand for daily service from MDW/STL to PNS? Other than leisure traffic, what else would PNS bring to the table to justify daily service outside of BNA/DAL/HOU? In addition to leisure traffic, WN would also be able to more easily connect local passengers in PNS to WN destinations n...Jump to post
