Olympia should have an Airport and Airline Service. It's a State Capitol. Many "State Capitol Airports" have a lot of service. Sacramento, California & Austin,Texas. LOL, wut?! Might as well say that Olympia should have a mega-hub too since the state capitols of Atlanta and Denver hav...Jump to post

What are IND's most desired unserved routes? With all of this in mind, the IND air service strategy continues to focus on increased service both domestic and international markets, including the: - West Coast of the U.S. - Drive markets from Indianapolis such as St. Louis, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Mi...Jump to post
I don't think people are appreciating how PDX being an Alaska Airlines hub played a MAJOR role in this -- because it almost guarantees the success of this route in my mind. https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/how-to-earn-miles/airline-partners/british-airways I flew BA business class YVR...Jump to post
All this talk about the subsidy being some sort of golden ticket for CDG.... October CDG-IND was at 90%! That's an amazing load factor for October for any route to anywhere. Guess what? There was no subsidy for October. That means this route is holding its own without any help from anyone. The subs...Jump to post
So rather than go into an untapped market, they're going into one with direct competition from DL. I don't get it. Simple enough to get. DL is only seasonal. It is safe to assume that DL will not be resuming the route in S21. You think DL is just going to roll over? I doubt it. I have no doubt they...Jump to post
Oh my, not this IND flight to Asia nonsense again! Weren't you Indy fanboys 100% adamant that the flight was going to be announced by the end of 2018?

It seems like Delta is the only airline you ever hear about going above and beyond like this to help passengers stranded due to another airline. It's definitely a culture thing. That's why I fly Delta whenever possible, even if it costs slightly more.Jump to post
Midwestindy response is "predictable": "SDF lacks service to JFK, BOS, YYZ, SFO, SEA, SAN, AUS, RDU, e.t.c Until there is service to most of these, it's not even worth discussing" #1. Boyd suggest SDF TATL in 3-5 yrs. #2. SDF is working on BOS, YYZ, SFO, SEA and RDU. That said, ...Jump to post

IND has a problem that needs to be resolved. They are taking a beating because of the 737 MAX issue. That isn't their fault but it is their problem none the less. They also have a problem in that they have two airlines (F9 and G4) that play darts with a route map and you cannot rely on them from se...Jump to post

The new name is widely welcomed in Louisville. Ali is a legend in the city. Just look up footage of his funeral procession a few years ago.

Rough day for the flight attendant and passengers. Why do some people have to become animals when they fly. Is it drugs and alcohol? More like the abundance of unbundled fares. What did people expect when aviation became yet another form of mass transport. Yep, someone posted the performance stats ...Jump to post
Interesting. Kinda curious IND is not mentioned given that they've invested heavily with the CDG route and others, but to the point made earlier, would love to see what 'focus city' actually means. Hopefully IND isn't about to get the PIT treatment from DL. The PIT-CDG flight was just discussed in ...Jump to post

A.net has more unfounded rumors than the average clique of high school girls.
No, because LAX is not a huge hub for any major airline, whereas ATL is a massive hub for Delta and its geographic location makes it convenient for passengers connecting domestically. In the world, ATL won't stay at #1 forever - I think it will pass the crown to IST which is projected to have 150 m...Jump to post

Didn't know Dubai was in Asia, thanks for the very enlightening comment. Might as well add BOS-DOH then and YUL-DOH according to your reasoning.

According to the IND fanboys, NH was supposed to announce a flight to IND by the end of 2018, because airport officials promised a flight to Asia by then and also because NH's colors matched some displays at the airport. So, I'm SURE NH is thinking about IND as well, lol.Jump to post
It’s going to be embarrassing for the whole world when the accident cause is unrelated. It will not be embarrassing for anyone.

Social media hysteria rules the day. American Airlines reported in 14,000 flights, there have be NO REPORTS of any flight management irregularities with the MAX 8. I repeat, no irregularities. I would fly on a MAX 8 in the hands of a WN or AA pilot today. We still have zero data on what happened on...Jump to post
AA needs to stay out of India and let its alliance partners fly there, PHL is not Newark or JFK in O & D for such a long flight. The most viable city AA has a large presence for India is Chicago but its ORD hub is in declining health, now would not be the time for a new flight there. AA has bet...Jump to post
Austin would also be a good choice for Indian flights. Its a decent tech hub and faces no competition from gulf carriers. The "rah rah AUS" is getting almost comical.... AUS hasn't even shown that it can support two yearround flights to Europe yet, and now you're talking 16hr+ flights to ...Jump to post
ATL on the airport authority side is known for being one of the most corrupt airports in the United States. While operationally it runs fine, much of that is do to the airline(s) and not the airport authority. I can see why they want to pull it under the state's control and away from the corruption...Jump to post

What about the non-stop flight to Asia that "Indy" said was guaranteed to happen before the end of 2018? Is Indy really big enough to support a TPAC flight? They have a single TATL flight to Paris.

Well, then airlines should get more realistic about passengers size. A 9-across A330 or A310, or 6-across ARJ/BAe-146 are glaring examples of being unrealistic on their part, don't you think?

If a Southwest agent considers you to be a "Customer of Size" you'll be required to buy a ticket for the seat next to you. It will be be refunded if the flight turns out not to be full.

It seems to me that this would be the biggest trial run of a spoke city that DL wants to become a focus city since RDU and/or SEA.
