Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Hey guys... San Diego native here. I pretty much see every plane that lands in the evening (walking the dog at Balboa). So quick question about a daily flight I see: Around 6pm every evening, I see the San Antonio Sewer Pipe landing. (For those unfamiliar: That's a Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner)....

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Personally, if we're dreaming, I'd wonder if it were possible to land civilian planes at North Island and ferry passengers over from SAN (where check in would be located). Something similar to YTZ, but as a sterile ferry. Obviously it would have to be with O&D pax and not connections, but just a...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Is their some technical reason as to why these trolleys are so short? I believe they have to fit within a city block, so four cars is the max. Generally Green Line runs with three cars during the day and two at night. If it were to become a booming option for travelers, it would likely be able to a...

So which gate does Sun Country get?


Usually Sun Country uses 16 with Spirit. Allegiant does the same at 15.

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

My understanding from last year is the airport is keen to let Lufthansa breathe and wouldn't "actively" seek out new carriers in Europe. I read into that as they're hoping LH goes 7x and they would focus their attention (and budget) to Asia (i.e. PR), but if they lose Edelweiss and LH does...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

https://i.postimg.cc/kRWx7jC6/SAN-2019.jpg Okay, now that our latest round of "Musical Chairs" is over, the lack of reports of issues seems to indicate all is well. Any first-hand reports on the big switch-up? Lots of issues with Alaska and American baggage claim. Seems like a turf war ov...

How many gates does B6 currently use? Are they still in Terminal 2 West?


Still there for a few more months. Then they go to T1. JetBlue currently uses 34, 35, 36. 35 is CUTE as is 34, I believe.

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Now that we've learned (see my earlier post) that G4 is moving to T1W, I would expect AS will be using, after their move to T2E, gates 20, 21, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30 & 32 full time and exclusively; that will give them 8 gates -- still no actual growth from their present situation. AA will essential...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Does anybody have a list of all the airlines currently operating out of Terminal 2 East? Are Gates 20, 21, and 22 still connected to FIS? They are no longer connected to FIS since the new FIS is on the west side. The new gates are connected by a second (technically third) sterile floor that was bui...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Looks like SAN Is trying to attract Philippine Airlines. Airport CEO Kim Becker is going to the airline's HQ in Manila later this month for a three-day trip. PAL put San Diego on its short list a few years ago. Perhaps they'll be able to seal the deal with a face-to-face.

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

Someone wrote on the AS thread that AS would move from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2 East and get 7 gates there. Is this possible? Are there 7 open gates anywhere in T2? There's going to be a gate swap on January 29. Alaska will move to T2 East and others will move to T1. I don't think they've announced...
