Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2022

There is a ton of demand to Florida right now and historically there was quite a bit of capacity across US, FL, and WN...though not as much as there is currently. This is partly why I think a F9/NK merger will see quite a bit of cuts in PHL. I do not see a combined carrier flying 6-8x to MCO/FLL+MIA...

Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2022

There are several others.
PHL-MCI - 1x 319
PHL-STL - 1x 319
PHL-BDL - 2x 319
PHL-BGR - 1x 319
PHL-PIT - 1x 319

But many destinations only have 3x flts/day to PHL, clearly indicating there are still several banks missing from the AA PHL hub.

I understand AA has had a rough time in Germany, but could this also be that ~3x day CLT-Germany flights across AA/LH (which have generally favored business travel) are simply too many in an international travel environment that is favoring leisure travel.

I agree, I don't see much remaining for B6/NK outside of the overlapping FLL, and maybe some Florida/SJU routes.

The NEA being blown up will help PHL, but I do not think routes like DOH and India will suddenly shift to PHL.
