Re: Washington State Thread - 2019

Thanks again everyone. His flight was delayed about 1/2 hour out of ORD, so I got dropped at arrivals and had my friend park in the cell lot. Once we grabbed his bag, we were in car and rolling in less than 5 minutes . Appreciate the tips!

Re: Washington State Thread - 2019

A quick question: My 80-year old Dad is flying into Sea-Tac on Sunday, and a friend and I are going to pick him up. If we wait in the cell-phone lot, is it realistic for me to walk from the lot to arrivals? My dad won't have a phone, so I'd like to meet him at baggage, then call my friend in the lo...

I don't think you can easily make that walk. You can probably have your friend drop you off then get back to the cell lot and wait for your call.

Thanks. I looked at the Google satellite pics, and it seemed on the border of reasonable. It's do-able, but..... Thanks again.

Re: SEA congestion INTL arrivals

Maybe once that bullet train gets built between Vancouver and Seattle, YVR can be a reliever airport for SEA in terms of internatonal pax, they have room to expand! It's a common thing in Europe and Asia to have other cities act like reliever airports with the technology of bullet trains. Where wou...

Anybody have the Mariners flight number for the regular season? I tracked them sometimes last year, but have forgotten the number. IIRC, DL88xx.

Re: Why no Wright Brothers International Airport for DAY?

Has DAY ever discussed dedicating their airport to the Wright Brothers? I know they did most of their flying in Kitty Hawk NC, however they were from Dayton OH and lived there most of their lives. I noticed the official name of the airport is Dayton International Airport. Just curious if they ever ...

Re: Data: scrap value of an A380

That's a lot of beer cans and kegs. Fun fact, kegs are Stainless Steel. I sometimes wonder though, how many of the cans the brewery I work at used to be Boeings, which were made an hour away? I seem to recall the answer being none, because in fact the aluminum in airplanes is different from that fo...

Bellingham was clear and sunny most of the day, clouded up a bit in the afternoon, but BLI seems underequipped to take a bunch of extra flights.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wondering what folks think lies ahead for BLI? Any chance of different carriers coming in? Increased routes for existing carriers? The effect of PAE opening on BLI?
