I don't have specific dates for everything, but on May 3, 2002, SWAPA signed the Side-Letter with SWA outlining the -200 drawdown and I know it was implemented very shortly (possibly the next month) afterwards. I believe we were down to 50 -200's then and they were sequestered to the DAL/HOU domici...Jump to post

FedEx is moving to ONT.
Why would these new terminals affect cargo carriers? Their ops are on the south side of the runways, way from all the construction.

There's been an Asia Pacific Airlines 757 doing flights for UPS between ONT and PDX on and off since last week. I missed it by a couple minutes this morning; anyone know if it's going to be doing any flying tomorrow or Friday? It also flies between ONT and BFI, it just left. It should be here at ON...Jump to post
Atl-ont seems like something to try the a220 on That would be a serious downgrade from the 737-900's that will do the eventual twice daily runs. based on their previous exit on this route and other factors I would argue the 739 is too much airplane and the A220 might work better.

Does Amazon Prime have a hub in ONT? I saw about a dozen when I was there. No, only CVG is considered a hub, but ONT is a very big outstation. About half of the network is running point-to-point, while the other half is hub ops through CVG. It remains to be seen how the PTP operation will be affect...Jump to post
Re: Moving to March ARB Very interesting. Amazon was certainly developing a large presence at ONT; too bad it all couldn't fit right now. RIV is only 20 minutes away by car, and certainly has the airport infrastructure (runways 13,300 by 200 feet) to handle the business. The question is whether Ama...Jump to post

Used airstairs for a 767 on DEN-LGB in 1986 AA flew a DC-10 to ONT during the late 90's for a short period, prior to the new terminals opening and it was a stairway.

The flight should be nighttime to allow for more connections to MNL, SGN, etc. Operating it during the daytime was a mistake.

SF traffic is no joke. The worst drivers on the planet. Crazy that these 2 airports had flights between them though that's like flying ORD-MDW or JFK-EWR.

It looks like ONT has a separate International Arrivals Building that has no jetbridges.

Later this year FedEx is breaking ground on a new sorting facility at ONT. It will be on the northwest side with parking for 14 aircraft, 14 feeder caravans and 4 ATR aircraft. Is this to replace their LAX hub, or to supplement it? Yeah, that's a good question. SEA is one of the busiest FX ramps in...Jump to post
Longer term, however, I'd expect FX to close it and move work to lower cost location. If the idea is to stay in the general area I think ONT is a no-brainer, but that's way down the road and that's also a huge capital expenditure we are talking about. Later this year FedEx is breaking ground on a n...Jump to post
Yeah, if Ontario (ONT) can get service to Taipei (TPE), I think AUS should have service to NRT and ICN.

Now that I think of it, the ONT-PVD typically arrives before the tower opens at 0530. Maybe that's why the CAT III ILS wasn't available to them. But with the delay at ONT they would have arrived after the tower opened. That is what I thought they might have meant that the tower wouldn't be staffed ...Jump to post

Take a step back. Had UA and CO not gotten together, what would have happened? I don't think UA would be a standalone carrier today.

I think the rule is below 10000 feet the cockpit "must be sterile", so no erm... side chatter or whatever you call it. That's only for the cockpit.
