DL1799 to SYR. I think this is the first A220 to ever land in SYR. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL1799/history/20190807/1915Z/KDFW/KSYR MDT got one as well. I believe this is at least the second time one has diverted here. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL505/history/20190807/1720Z/KD...Jump to post
Add AA2113 and UPS2418 to the diversions at MDT

On the service side I wouldn't be surprised if AA moved one of their 2 BOS-ROC flights to ITH.
The ITH expansion and renovation project is moving right along...
I feel really sorry for ET. Hope this crash won’t tarnish their brand as they have worked really hard to build it up the past few years. I'm positive that ET is not at fault here. Wow, the expert has spoken, case closed/// A.net has so many aviation experts. I’m surprised Boeing hasn’t solicited th...Jump to post
Could we please just debate the topic without making things personal nor making outlandish statements such as grounding the worldwide fleet or its definitely not the airlines fault without having evidence to back that up. Additionally be respectful to one another. Those coming here just to post com...Jump to post
I had a look at Southern's site, PIT-MTD flights appear as early as tomorrow, even though they can't be booked. In fact, none of the flights are bookable. I guess Southern is still tweaking things?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. :smile: Anyone know what’s up with this flight? https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/4O1303 Interjet flew flight 4O1302 from MDT to CUN on November 18th. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/AIJ1302 I'm wondering if this is the return going through PIT for Customs?...Jump to post
Some good images of what the renovated terminal at ITH will look like next year.

Profitable 19-seat aircraft are needed again. Air Canada seems to do all right with theirs. Remember Mall Airways? Small props from around the state to Albany in the 1980's. They also operated Rochester's only (as far as I know) route to YUL, I think in 1985. Jim I remember Mall flying Navajos and ...Jump to post
If they do DTW-ORH, they'll also do ATL-ORH. That's just how it works folks. So that must be why DL’s flying 717 from ITH, ELM, etc. to ATL. Oh, and I read on a.net last week that DL informed ELM that in 2020, the 717 is being replaced with the A220. ITH has never had 717 or any other service to AT...Jump to post

Sierra Pacific in the US still flies at least one 737-200. It's been to MDT several times in the last few weeks.Jump to post
How do these two airlines allow that to happen? Disgraceful.
With BUF, SYR, and ALB now all either active or announced for F9, any chance we see ROC on the horizon for them? At this point, I don't see why not. NK probably won't do it. F9 has a good chance at ROC. I'd even throw it out there and say they could add ELM-MCO/DEN too. ELM-DEN...seriously? ELM-ORD...Jump to post
Just saw the emplanement numbers for FY17 versus FY16. Looking at ITH/ELM/BGM: ITH was +9.61% ELM was - 9.4% BGM was - 51.15% Great news for ITH as service continues to grow. AA this week announced Saturday only service to CLT beginning in December. BGM numbers aren’t surprising with AA and UA both ...Jump to post
AA also added Saturday only service from ITH-CLT beginning 22 December. Route will be operated by Piedmont.Jump to post
As I recall ITH has been a really dead market with perhaps 20% of the local market using ITH, and 80% of the market driving to other airports. So to me it stands to reason that daily CLT flights should work. This is a similar situation to the COU market in Missouri. Used to be basically unserved, b...Jump to post
Was surfing around the Southern Airways Express site and noticed that you can no longer book PIT-MDT or MDT-PIT. While the route map still shows Harrisburg there are no bookable flights. I checked flyhia.com and Southern no longer shows up as one of the airlines serving the airport. Anyone know what...Jump to post
Does anyone know when they will announce the winning airports for the grants? There is nothing new on the DOT website.Jump to post
I liked flying non-rev into ITH when I was in college in the early 80s. Empire flew Metros to Utica, JFK, Islip and I think Syracuse. Don't remember if the F28s made it to Ithaca. Allegheny/USAir flew DC-9s during the same period Empire operated F28’s from ITH for several years. At one point they h...Jump to post

Great article on the upcoming changes to ITH. The expanded terminal will be great!

I found DEN RDU and MCO for each PWM SYR and MDT.... SYR gets ORD too MDT-RDU is definitely interesting, hope them the best! MCO and DEN did well before so I see those routes working well again.

Frontier has MDT listed as a destination on their site... I just checked their website and see nothing on their route map and Harrisburg isn’t listed in their drop down menu.

ITH and ROA are shoe ins both because what they're asking for is reasonable and because they're asking for less in SCASD funds than they already have in community funds and because they're proposing network service. Fingers crossed for ITH. They have been trying for a few years to secure ORD service.Jump to post
UA2527 was actually the first 777 to ever fly in/out of MDT. I’m pretty sure back in 2005 Orange Bowl there was a UA 772 in MDT at gate B5. Also there have been diversions. Over the years UA has diverted numerous 777's to MDT when the weather was bad at IAD. I remember having 3 777-200's on the car...Jump to post
I did a search on Google for the new ELM service and found nothing. I'm guessing it isn't "official" yet. ELM-EWR is loaded on united.com and at travelocity.com. I don't know how much more "official" it needs to be. What I meant was there was no official announcement from the ai...Jump to post
