Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

It seems kind of crazy a flight as short as BOS-LGA would be allowed to take off if it wasn't going to be ok to land? We are talking 180 miles! The plane on takeoff is getting ready to be lined up in the hold to land into LGA. Seems like it should have just been delayed in BOS. Longer flights sure ...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

If you are going off the OAG post they only list changes from the same month the previous year. It looks like DL does have two dailies in July and August but they did last year as well so the OAG list would not show anything. Did they last year? IIRC it was only one daily to ATL (and usually A320, ...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

Looks like DL is adding a 2nd daily for BTV-ATL for the summer. With AA retrenching a tad bit (5 dailies to PHL this summer vs 6--all mainline--dailies last year) it's nice to DL fill a void a bit that should keep price pressure on UA. Looks like the 2nd ATL flight is a CRJ900, while former mainlin...

Re: UA responds to Frontier starting BTV-DEN, launches their own seasonal service

I am a little surprised they went with a 320, seems like a perfect EMB route to me. For 1x weekly it's catering to ski and snowboard traffic which is actually a pretty smart move on their part. Recall if you have "The Pass" for the winter season in CO, some packages allow for skiing in St...

The number of Vermonters now with Epic Passes will create a lot of demand in the winter. If they can make the 3x weekly work in the...

As of the Sept 2018 numbers PBG was down 20% year over year, so I think some rightsizing happened. I can't find the airline report right now, but I think I looked a while back and the NK numbers had dropped. It looks like someone did MCO but dropped it last year.

Great marquee route for BTV, they're longest scheduled route ever, by far. Also stands a good chance of giving BTV its first A320 NEO service. We all know Quebec travels (at least those that travel to BTV, or PBG for that matter) are very price-sensitive so F9 is probably able to find a market that...

UA mainline's load factor was only 73% for November; would BTV be at risk of losing some of the mainline service to EWR or ORD at that level? 73% of a mainline aircraft is still more than anything else that United has available, so they would have to switch to an RJ and then hope that the other sch...

Re: Boston aviation - 2018

Makes sense. I feel like I've seen that space used for a number of things. Still, interesting that a runway is getting "usefulness" out of things that aren't takeoffs and landings. :duck: Massport log jet activity and for 14/32 it gets used for departures around 1.5% of the time, probably...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread 2018

Here's a B6 example of a small city-hub-large city connection route using a BTV-SFO itinerary in May. I looked up the current fare for the whole trip as well as the individual fares for BTV-JFK and for JFK-SFO. BTV-SFO $267 average each way BTV-JFK $118 average each way JFK-SFO $173 average each way...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

Assuming that Flightaware is accurate, BTV had 6 mainline aircraft RON last night (2xA320, 1xA319, 1xB738, 2xE190) One of these looks like an unusual add for UA, but I believe the others are more or less the regular crowd now. I know this isn't much for some of the airports in this thread, but it's ...

Re: Jetblue A320 refurbish thread.

Great going B6, this is WAY too complicated. So it sounds like there will be A320's/A321's flying around in with the old product, Phase 1, and Phase 2 all at the same time? Why not just wait for "Phase 2"? it looks like waiting for Phase 2 would have meant a 9-month delay without the reve...

Huge pocket session in BOS Thursday. Wonder what they are going to announce ?


Do they have to 'announce' anything? From what I can gather a pocket session is Q&A, and there should be plenty to cover from what was already announced.

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

The analysis on MHT is shocking but not unexpected. Their fares seem to just be shooting up on non-florida routes. The legacies seem all too interested in funneling passenger to BTV or BOS. Prices are often not even on the same planet to places like DEN, SLC, LA, LAS, SFO To be fair to BTV you have...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

One saving grace for BTV with B6 might be that it's all E190s. Finding a better use for them is probably not so easy. But the 190's are being replaced by 220's which have more seats. So unless the 190's have been flying full, that could be a problem. The current frequency is 3x/4x per day, so if th...
