Not a shuttle per-se, but Delta used to mess with a flight number from BHM->ATL, and then use the same flight number from ATL->STR to accommodate Mercedes-Benz travel between their Tuscaloosa plant and Germany. That way they had a guaranteed connection and minimal layover in ATL. I think it was DAL ...Jump to post
Looks like operations begin March 2021. Service to the southeastern part of the country. https://skift.com/transport/airlines/ If I were to guess I would think the three cities are SAV, ECP, VPS. I wouldn't consider VPS to be necessarily underserved, especially being a major Allegiant station (36 r...Jump to post
Would love to see Breeze service BHM. Could be quite successful. Demand is strong for BHM-BOS and that seems to be a very doable route within their capacity. Wonder when some routes might be announced I second this. It's a mid-major market with strong demand for NE routes, especially BOS area, whic...Jump to post
Traffic is almost back up to the 100k per month mark.

The demographics don’t really matter. The problem posted at the beginning of this thread still stands: The only value TPA would bring as a UA hub would be to serve as a LATAM/SA gateway. So why would UA compete against itself at IAH? Yep. The idea that TPA would make a good SE hub is completely uns...Jump to post
As long as oil prices remain rock bottom (who knows how long this will last), really short routes from BNA like MEM, LIT, BHM and SDF might be viable; WN recently announced the resumption of SDF-ATL so SDF-BNA might be less likely for the time being. While WN previously served BHM nonstop from BNA,...Jump to post
Selfishly I wish they would've added BHM. That is a city that has been clamoring for JetBlue service, and BOS is one of their top final destinations not currently served. Also could use some competition for DL in the NY market by going after EWR/JFK, and maybe a 1x to LAX...Jump to post
I missed the press release in July confirming that the BAA has refinanced its bonds. This will reduce the cost per enplanement significantly, which the Airport Director has said was a hold-up in getting Allegiant to open a BHM station. Hopefully, the costs will be lowered enough for Allegiant to st...Jump to post
Official that WN is beginning the BHM-DEN route one week from today.

FLO losing service doesn't really surprise me (though it would make more sense for an airline like DL to serve it).
2 hour (107 mi) drive to CHS, 120 mi to CLT (where their only flight was to), 96 mi to CAE, and 67 mi to MYR
BHM reports traffic is trending back up in July. The good news is that BHM is holding above the national trends as well. https://www.flybirmingham.com/bhm-reports-july-passenger-traffic/ The buried lead in this article is that WN moved up the start date for the BHM-DEN service. It is beginning once ...Jump to post

AA has used those on and off throughout the last year or so. I think it is mainly because of numbers and how many morning departures they have that are overnight turns. No room in Concourse C with WN taking their three gates and UA taking their three so they have to use A. I wonder why it's not A2 ...Jump to post
I've been down to BHM quite a lot recently to spot and take pics. It's been neat to see how the operations are during my trips. Of course, Stewart Industries is the main attraction with all of the parked Delta jets there. There have been 5-6 that have left so far. I waited 2.5 hours to watch an A33...Jump to post
According to Flightradar24, two more 739s are scheduled to leave MCI today. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/dl9967 https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/dl9964 -Rowen I bet MCI's management is leaning on Delta to clear out their planes stored on crosswind runway 9/27.

Hopefully BHM is courting Breeze. Mid-sized city that currently only has hub routes.
Previously explored routes before VC collapsed included RDU, PIT, AUS, and the market has demanded something to the Boston area, so PVD would be great. E95s would be perfect for those routes.
