Wow - AS cutting BWI-SAN route, wonder if that is an omen of things to come for the AS SAN focus city. I know a lot of loyal AS fliers in SD rely on that flight for their DC work and personal needs. I know their EWR and BOS routes aren’t doing too great either according to fare data posted by other...

Re: San Diego Aviation Thread - 2019

They waited 16 years to build the second half of Terminal 2 West. That should have been built at the same time. With the east terminal and the west offering 32 gates total, SAN didn't need more gates until the mid-'90s... and in 1998, 9 gates to the west of T2(E) were added. THEN we definitely had ...

It occurred to me that the times of the new PSP flights are very nicely suited to hotel stays: arrive the Springs ~3pm and after the turn there, the return flight leaves just before 4! So those folks who don't have homes in the desert are being nicely accommodated for their pay-to-stay arrangements....

They have 2 of those right now (1x LAX, 1x SLC), so their best bet w...

Re: Contour possible EAT-OAK

Somewhat off-topic but I wonder if Contour is researching the potential of a SBA-SAN route? I'm very sure nonstop service between the 2 cities would be viable; the drive continues to be more of a burden every year as traffic (particularly thru that big city halfway) gets worse and worse! (I remember...

Re: When will PDX-MIA/FLL happen?

New entrants often multiply PDEW enough to make the route viable. If we add PDX to FLL and MIA, that is enough for more than an A220-100. (128) A small increase due to the direct fills an A220-300. I'm not seeing an A320 or 738 justified. There will, of course still be connecting traffic (brand loy...
