Re: "Open Skies" in a World of Slot-Controlled Airports

99% of the airports in the world outside the US is slot controlled. This is exactly to prevent overcapacity issue, e.g. waiting 50 minutes for a gate like the major airports around USA do. Exactly which airport(s) are you talking about? I think the last place I waited that long for a gate was at OG...

Re: 35 minute layover at DCA for American Eagle connection?

AA absolutely can and does escort passengers on tight connections between 35X aircraft. I used to do it pretty routinely on a tight CRW-DCA-BNA connection I used quite a bit.

No, you will not be allowed to simply transfer planes on the tarmac, both for safety/security reasons (of not having passengers wandering around) and for logistics (your boarding pass will need to be scanned at the gate). They only run 1 bus from the gate to each plane, so while you don't have to g...

To accurately compare rail vs air in these corridors you really have to look at downtown to downtown times, not gate to gate.
