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

I have read about the 757 also, and I think I might have even heard the USAir station manager at the time mention it, so I believe it was here. Interesting - maybe I'm not crazy after all :D The 757 is certainly larger and heavier than the A321, but according to my research an F9 A321 has a lot mor...

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

I noticed on FR24 today that tomorrow's and next Thursday's flights are scheduled to be A321s. In terms of passengers I believe those will be the largest scheduled flights to have operated at BTV. Sometime in the 80's, USAir flew a one-off 757-200 PIT-BTV as a special upgauge around the Christmas h...

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

The plot thickens..... exciting.

Worst-case is UA runs F9 off, then drops the route, leaving BTV back at square one. I hope the market responds and there ends up being room for both.

Wow, this will be the first mainline BTV-EWR service since the days following Continental's takeover of People Express.
