They also have very large expansion plans for DEN, saying this week they want to add 100 flights with 16 new gates. With DAL and MDW constrained for growth, they are looking at new options for growth. The new gates in DEN will not be open until the end of 2020, and it is not known if Southwest will...Jump to post
The DAL cuts are shocking to me. Thought DAL has been flourishing post WA. JAX/OKC/SFO gone permanently. BOS/CHS/CLE/CRP/DTW/HRL/PDX/PHL/SEA/SNA gone seasonally. OKC is just a big shock to me. I worked for WN at DAL as a supervisor and all the OKC flights were usually 2/3 full and heavy on business...Jump to post
So if the airline actually defines BNA as a "focus city" but the operational "does not meet the definition", it shouldn't be? That makes no sense. This was probably the same idiot that kept insisting on NOT having DFW listed under American Eagle service as a CRJ7 was being used t...Jump to post
Maybe its a signal AA may actually do something to get more capacity and such to BNA? Surely the Envoy contract is up soon, renegotiated, or something, because there's no excuse for their lack of action besides adding some capacity on a couple routes, namely CLT and PHL.Jump to post
I think Southwest is going to be sidelined longer than many think and the growth at STL on their front is headed into a doldrum. Numbers like these are without a doubt attractive to Spirit. They have planes that need somewhere to go. It just seems to be a matter of when, not if, Spirit comes into S...Jump to post

No doubt Amazon Prime will fly multiple times between BNA and Amazon's hubs at CVG and Ft. Worth Alliance because it just makes sense.....
In the terminal expansion proposals, are those remote gates that are proposed or is that space for plane parking? That is RON space, which BNA is also short of right now. American airports, with a few exceptions, don't really seem to be all that keen on hardstand gates. I'm really curious to know w...Jump to post
Just more airline employee talk, but apparently B6 will be announcing MCO and JFK from BNA soon. I wouldn't doubt it to be true at all. JFK would be a return, and hopefully better in performance. I wouldn't be shocked to see Delta upgauge to mainline in retaliation and to maybe cement the new "...Jump to post
Apparently there's been damage done at KDAL due to severe storms, max gust of 62kts taken by the ASOS on field. Southwest hangars reportedly have door and roof damage, and also one of their large billboards on Mockingbird toppled onto a Chevron station.Jump to post
Reednavy - because all the BNA cheerleaders accept as fact that all 16M annual passengers at BNA are O&D. The facts would suggest otherwise. BNA had 8M total PAX in 2011. That 8M included 12%+ connecting pax (mostly WN). WN has since increased their operations by @40-50 flights/day...Nashville ...Jump to post
Hey Lexy - WN would not be flying 129-140 daily departures without significant connecting traffic. BNA has 32k departing seats/day and a CSA population of 2.1M. To fill all those seats that means everyone in the CSA needs to take 5.5 departing flights every year...... Business + Tourism/Conventions...Jump to post
I do wonder if/when B6 will enter the market. If they were truly wanting to get more foothold in the middle of the country, STL would be a great opportunity for a potential focus operation, granted going toe-to-toe with WN would be a heavy undertaking.Jump to post
No idea what the Tower told them regarding the winds (and gusts if active) at the time of landing. From calcs. for estimated loading including fuel from route and altitude and winds aloft the estimated Vref30 speed would be approximately 141-142 Kn. The closest METARs to the landing time notes (fro...Jump to post
I only see 15 empty seats on the BTV-ORD segment today. The 739 is alot larger than a 319. Looks like there was a need for extra seats, so it kind of worked out today. UA was not flying any mainline to BTV in April, and I don't think May is that much better for traffic, so maybe there is a frequenc...Jump to post
What happened to the all mainline schedule on BNA-DFW. It seems they’ve reduced the frequency to 7x daily and are now running a CR7 permanently on the last departure. It looks to go back all mainline in the warmer months coming up. Someone that previously amended the wikipedia page actually said to...Jump to post
