Re: Airports that can be accessed on foot vs airports that can only be accessed by car / train

Possible, but a total pain in the ass to get to LGA by foot and probably not something someone would voluntarily. But an option when everything was under construction and traffic was backed up down the GCP for miles - it was obvious to take the backroads through Queens out to the hotels by LGA and ...

Re: New EWR Airtrain, New LGA AIRTRAIN, New EWR Terminal 2

I've always marveled on how driving to Houston and Dallas for a low fare is not a big deal (ok, Dallas is a bit much for him). I always check IAH/HOU/DAL/DFW/AUS/SAT for him he asks me to find something. I guess having EWR/PHL/LGA/JFK/TTN/ACY & ILG within 1.5 hours with reasonable fares spoils ...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

It was Capitol Hill Grill. Not bad food. They had a bar behind the sign where airport employees would eat and pick up food to go. Great airport food and employees. That's it! Thank you! That place was a true old Nashville white tablecloth style joint. I remember the servers being decked out in whit...

Re: New EWR Airtrain, New LGA AIRTRAIN, New EWR Terminal 2

Never been to the South Terminal but it just seems to be a bit too small for IRROPs though. I guess its the tight rope walk of providing cheaper rent for the ULCC and not making it too uncomfortable for pax. I've only been to SAT once and I arrived at SAT and departed from AUS so while I didn't get...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

The airport was seen no different than the mall, and I knew many people who would get dinner at the airport restaurants and just watch the planes and people as a date. Those days are long gone sadly. I didn’t start working I’m the industry until 2009. However, even just as a long time frequent flye...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

Wow, it never occurred to me that the Beech 18 that Brothers belly landed in 2012 could have been the same plane that was flooded two years earlier. I assumed that the plane was a WO in 2010 like most of the other flooded aircraft at Cornelia Fort Airpark. But looking up old 2010 pics, the Beech 18...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

It was also back in 2010 that massive flooding in Nashville proved to be the last straw for the old Cornelia Fort Airpark along the Cumberland River. Multiple planes were underwater, including a classic Beech 18. :cry: Not true! That Beech 18 showed up a few years later when it was belly-landed due...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

Luckily dnata has the tow process quick like clockwork so they can get from the A gate to the B gate in less than 5 minutes, the problem comes with inbound and outbound traffic not having a clue as to what's going on. Sometimes on a bad night you can see an ops car driving around like a chicken wit...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

My comment was overall, they don’t care about NYC as evidenced by their JFK pullback. AA is going to have to get rid of the 50 seaters on BNA-ORD. This is a route where E75s would be nice. Definitely wish they hadn't pulled back so hard at JFK. I fly AA in Nashville and New York (I live in both cit...

I think they could run a 190 or 319 to LGA. The new ramp contract will certainly be beneficial.


The 190s were supposed to be gone because by now. It's only the MAX holding up that retirement. I'd expect them gone this year even if the MAX doesn't come back.

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

I doubt we’ll see anything from AA though, their mainline planes are too big and they don’t care about NYC anymore. AA cares very much about LGA. The business travelers who use their Eagle flights BNA-LGA prefer frequency over upgauging. I'm one of them. The 175 is a nice ride. Especially if you ca...

I live the DO328 so much, pumped that we'll get to see it on a scheduled service Wait did I miss something? Who is flying those and to where?

AS cut SFO last year, but this bodes only bolsters the case for AA being the global carrier of choice out of BNA.


Damn. I missed that cut. I'd love to see AA add that route back once they take the ramp back.

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

AS joining Oneworld!

How does that pertain to BNA? Well, AS is in the B concourse today. They also fly BNA-SFO and BNA-SEA non-stops that AA doesn't. Wonder if we'll see them move over to C in the short term, and I'd imagine they will join the new A concourse plans now.

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

Yeah, it’s a mystery to me why AA still flies BNA-JFK with the size plane they do. I do believe this could be the final nail in the coffin for that service. I fly their 5x daily BNA-LGA "shuttle" on the E175 all the time and have always assumed the JFK flights are solely for international...
