From a marketing stance, "New York JFK" sounds a lot more glamorous and appealing to passengers. By that reasoning, EWR would have a lower average fare. Does that mean the name of EWR vs. JFK isn’t that consequential or is there something else that more than makes up for the lack of “JFK”...Jump to post
With 33 years seniority, the resourceful FA found a way to get back at him. She knew where his carry-on bag was in the overhead, and got a baggage tag from the locker....and routed his bag through Honolulu !! (She just set it at the Jetway door & the groundcrew took it right away) When the plan...Jump to post
I believe DL has a lot less exposure to LCCs and ULCCs (amplified after WN bought AirTran and then sold all the 717s to DL, allowing them to become even bigger while shrinking their biggest ATL competitor). ATL is also one of the lowest cost megahubs with among the lowest cost-per-enplanements. The ...Jump to post
787-10 info update I’m confused about the 787-9 and 787-10 updates. Are these firm orders and if not why is there this level of detail on future deliveries? If they’re firm orders wouldn’t Boeing and UA want some kind of press release out about them? Seems Boeing especially would given their troubl...Jump to post
These aircraft will have nose to tail AVOD and PDE. They’ll be installing personal video screens at each economy seat? Would be great to see and an interesting reversal of the “PDE only” philosophy that has been in effect the last few years. Hopefully this will extend to the other domestic deliveri...Jump to post

Brett Snyder’s take on it, reflecting the lack of clarity on how many new gates DEN will end up with and where all airlines will end up moving.

if UA gets all of the A gates and WN gets all of the C gates there are no gates left for anyone else. The 2 main airlines that want additional gates and Frontier and Spirit. Frontier would like to have 12-15 gates total(currently have 9) and Spirit only wants 1 or 2 more. It will be interesting to ...Jump to post
WN is reportedly lobbying for the 16 new gates at Terminal C; it doesn't appear as though UA's request for the new gates at A & B would have too much of an impact on WN's request at DEN. I was wondering how the article determines which gates are new and which existing gates are included in the ...Jump to post
https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-airlines-plans-more-gates-new-clubs-at-growing-denver-hub/ This is touched on in the general UA and DEN threads, but this news could merit its own discussion where more people will see it. With airlines working to gain as many new gates as possible in DEN, city c...Jump to post
What kind of timeframe is expected for this to live through the courts? There might end up being an appeal from either side, depending on how the initial ruling comes down.Jump to post
https://thepointsguy.com/news/united-no ... m-sfo-dub/ With the recent announcement of SFO-DUB, United will serve seven European cities from their west coast powerhouse (in addition to LHR, FRA, MUC, CDG, ZRH, AMS). With DOT considering TLV and DEL as TATL, it’s even more impressive to consider nine...Jump to post
