Re: LAX overtakes DXB as world's 3rd busiest airport by H1 2019 pax traffic

It's a predominantly O&D airport. There's less of a need for giant terminals and multiple runways to handle both large volumes of connecting pax and aircraft movements. It's the complete opposite of ATL, for example. Now, if they could only figure out how to alleviate the car traffic :) ATL isn...

Re: SAS moving LAX route from ARN to CPH

Blaming ARN losing flights on a 16 y.o. girl. LOL.

Greater CPH (including parts of Sweden) is according to wikipedia somewhere north of 3 million. Metro Stockholm is 2.5 million. 100 miles difference on great circle mapper.

Re: IAD Airport finally bounces back

Dulles would work even better if there were a more direct Potomac river crossing from Montgomery County on, say, Rte 28. As it stands one has to go over the American Legion Bridge of the Beltway and endure awful traffic most of the day.

Re: IAD Airport finally bounces back

Do you have a link for the preliminary design of a replacement C/D?

Re: American Airlines Schedules 787 & 772 On DFW-PHX-DFW

One of my favorite domestic flights ever was IAD to DEN on a UA 777. I swear we were on a rocket I could see us blowing by other planes in the sky and we landed like 30 min sooner than I was used to when on a 737.

Re: Washington State Thread - 2019

I don't think you can easily make that walk. You can probably have your friend drop you off then get back to the cell lot and wait for your call.

Re: First full electric airline service

I'd love to see electric sea plane service in the Puget Sound. Flights from Olympia to Seattle and Bellevue bypassing the horrendous I-5 traffic... Would be nice if you could have commuter prices on it somehow.

Re: Can DL Pacific gateway in SEA work?

Great Circle Mapper suggests SEA is closer to most Asian locations than SFO (by 3-400 miles) or LAX (by 6-700 miles) and also to Europe, DXB, etc and competitive to BNE. If SEA realizes the hoped for efficiencies with their new IAF then DL will have made a prescient choice. But they probably are und...

Re: JFK Airport in the 1960's and 1970's

The only time JFK is a pain is when you are connecting and require a change of terminals. Otherwise the smaller terminals make walks shorter, ignoring some of the epic ones in T4 for regional flights. T8 opened earlier than some have noted. I first flew through there in mid 2006, connecting through...

Re: Can DL Pacific gateway in SEA work?

The trouble is that SEA is too small so DL cant grow as large as they wish Seattle is the global headquarters for Amazon, Microsoft, Starbucks, Expedia, Costco, plus many others. It’s not some podunk backwater. True, but the infrastructure of the whole city is 20 years behind the growth curve and S...

Re: JFK Airport in the 1960's and 1970's

Yeah, I foggily remember flying to Europe in the early 80's (I was like 6) and recall the pilot saying we were like 40 or 50 in line to take off. Crazy.

Re: DFW Announces Terminal F Plans & C Renovations

I think AA should build three more stingers (one more on Term B, two on Term A) and consolidate much of their AE flights to those, freeing up the rest of Term B to mainline service, especially if C is going to be out of service for a remodel. Those stingers would be very close to skytrain stations s...
