About the loads being higher west than east. One issue with the Eastbound flights is that most of the passengers on the Eastbound flights are not originating in the hub city, where on the westbound flights they are usually originating in the European city. (LHR and possibly MAD are exceptions) The ...Jump to post

Only 3 flight a day between PHL and BDL? Wow, that’s such a change from past years. Are they eliminating some banks? I assume it's now mainline if it wasn't before, but that is a shocker. Sure it's not bank driven. I guess it wasn't profitable enough? As always, thanks for my favorite Sunday mornin...Jump to post

AA could stand to spread out the TA arrivals a bit. They pack them in during the 3pm hour. But I guess that probably messes with their banks that they seem to want to minimize. A few things I'd like AA to do: 1.) Revisit the gate alignment at F. What are the movements for F? I'd like to see them pot...Jump to post
PHL-DBV will go from 3x to 4x weekly in September.
It appears you can see this LH 744 in the distance on the deicing pad of the PHLAirport twitter picture.

Wasn't there some TWA contract that isn't allowing them to return? Though the bindings is a big rumor for leaving the TLV market, AA stated that it was too expensive of a route. They claimed that at any given time they needed to aircraft on the route, and they could better utilize equipment in othe...Jump to post
So I see the b748 sitting near the deicing pad. Is PHL not able to support the b748 at the gate? The wingspan is only 14 feet longer than the 744. PHL.org has today's arrival coming to A6 which I do not believe is normal. Maybe the 748 can only park at a few gates and there is a gate occupancy issue.Jump to post
You called it I looked at Sun Country website and there check-in counter is in terminal D. So I was walking down Concourse D a few minutes ago and there are a few AS/DGS employees hovering around gate D4, which is an AS gate. There is a small Sun Country banner having on stanchions in front of the ...Jump to post
Per the weekly OAG Changes thread posted today, AA is launching 1x daily service to XNA beginning in September. Great to see AA continue to fill in the destination map from PHL. I’m guessing this will be American Eagle on an E175 and suspect XNA was chosen due to Business travelers to/from Walmart ...Jump to post
The AA PHL-SAT reduction isn't that much of a surprise with F9 a pretty consistent mainstay. What sparked the AC cuts? Max cuts? Didn't they just announce a number of YYZ frequency increases 4-6 weeks ago. I thought F9 stop service on this route for this year? My mistake you are correct. That actua...Jump to post

TAP maybe looking at PHL after all according to this article on recovering their first A321LR. https://airlinegeeks.com/2019/04/07/tap-portugal-receives-its-first-a321lr/ Interesting to see if TAP can get a slot from PHL for the TATL bank.

I'm not sure if it is suppose to be in line with the BA retirement of the 744. I'm sad that PHL would not see the A35k but it would to big for PHL. BA is also replacing the 747 on LHR-IAH and LHR-PHX, as well as several other routes. So it's not just a PHL thing. Where is it written that PHL won't ...Jump to post

So AA, AS, NK all serve PHL to LAX. Currently AA 6x, AS 1x, and NK 1x daily. I'm aware UA a long time ago to serve PHL-LAX. My question is would the other 2 of the BIG 3 U.S. airlines serve LAX-PHL? Also I noticed that the AS switch the PHL-LAX from morning to night departure 7:45pm for summer 7:25...Jump to post
Yes, they are being phased out gradually, being positioned in the MIA and PHL hubs only.

In this case it's probably more a LHR slot issue. Not hard to guess why MIA would have more midwinter demand than PHL. Winter LHR has been abysmal, most often lower than a 40% load factor but always full up front and cargo waiting. Aircraft will be used probably for SJU or other Caribbean but final...Jump to post
AA dropping 1 PHL-LHR flight to seasonal in W19 (will resume Mar 2020) to make way for the additional winter MIA-LHR frequency. It baffles me a bit that AA/BA can't manage at least ~3x on a hub to hub route year round.
I wasn't expecting PHL to be high, but it has to bleed to EWR. With the near double digit number of flights to Asia and a 1-2 hour train/drive to PHL area. One stop PHL-NRT options are 4-6 hours longer than the EWR-NRT nonstop. And many AA one-stop options are 2-3 hours longer than the UA PHL-NRT on...Jump to post
An update on AA domestic widebody schedules
PHL-LAS 1x 763
**Since 3/4 and appears to be through end of April. AA only operates 2x total in March
PHL-SFO 1x 763, 1x 332
**Through much of April. AA operating 4x total in April
Plus the normal MCO, MIA, CLT, LAX rotations
UPS has had the B748 at PHL at least 3 times now. I've seen it on UPS2194 Friday afternoons 2/8, 2/15 and 3/1. It always departs that night back to SDF at 10:15pm (forget the flight number but that's the proposed time for the flight plan). As noted the 2/22 UPS2194 was a B744 but stayed until Sunda...Jump to post

On the UPS front, they seem to be running a 747 a bit on SDF-PHL
2/22 - 744
3/1 - 748 (no record of this departing, so it might be an error)
3/4 - 744 (saw this one today)
Pretty sure the last time the regularly used the 747 into PHL was with the 742 and 741.
