First wave of flights: ANC-SEA with ffg Northwest DC10-30. SEA-MSP Project Opensky 747-200B Northwest. MSP-ORD Northwest DC9. ORD-IAH Project AI Airbus 319 United.
Next wave: MCO-IAH project opensky 767-400ER Continental, IAH-AUS Continental 737-300
Artysman, I find your hypothesis hard to believe-I don't have any "numbers" to back it up-however I know that Northwest now runs an almost full schedule of Airbus 319/320s to DTW, MEM, and MSP from Iah after the codeshare started. Before the flights were a couple of DC9s. I agree in the sense that t...Jump to post
Since 2000-2001. Its called TerminalLink. It will eventually be expanded to the new Terminal E. The extension to A was postponed because of lack of demand for interline connections of that nature. Check www.continental.com, it shows it on their hub maps. The tram is between B and C.Jump to post
YEs continental operates EFD-iah flights currently with ATRs. They used to fly HOU-IAH as well. As of Dec. 12th the COEx will be all jet so IAH-EFD will go to ERJ135s. I've flown the route many times-its a good alternative if u live on the south side of Houston-parking is free at Ellington and you g...Jump to post
I go to school down there-I bounced yesterday (9/24/02) back home to Houston. I was more concerned about getting my car out since I stay on the 2nd floor of my building. The storm won't be that bad-just nasty flooding--I'm not a big enough fan of New Orleans to hang around for that.Jump to post
I have flown the HOU-IAH, and EFD-IAH run many times since I live on the southside of Houston. The flights in the ATRs to EFD are about 15-17mins. Galveston has petitioned Continental for service before, but they determined that EFD service was sufficient enough. However, that was well before Galves...Jump to post
Due to the backlog of stranded AA passengers, they sent a 777-200 in last night (7/14/02) to get as many passengers out as possible. It operated flight AA600 departing IAH at 8:25pm from gate A29. I am surprised that a 777 can operate from the new South Concourse at Terminal A.Jump to post
I was looking at some pics of Pan Am and I was wondering if anyone had an online link to old timetables or old route maps. I was noticing there widebodies at locations such as YYZ and was curious. I know they use to operate a mini-hub out of my home airport of IAH. Any comments would be appreciated.Jump to post
Blink 182 is right... It took several horrendous flights on Delta to turn me against them. Haven't flown them since-and don't intend to unless its free. As far as the American debate-I've never flown them because I live in Houston-with ample service from Southwest and Continental there is no point t...Jump to post
To the Contrary, At IAH, if you are transiting betweent terminals B and C you can take TerminalLink Monorail-which will be expanded to all other terminals as well. In the event that you need to go between the other terminals there is an underground rail that connects all terminals-the drawback is th...Jump to post
The 757-300s are moved to IAH during summer months. During Winter season they operate out of EWR. The 737-900s are out of all of the hubs presently. I have flown the 757-300 three times between IAH and MSY- twice on the 7:00a flight that was mentioned in an earlier post. They are currently on flight...Jump to post
Flyingbronco- You are wrong. The 777s that CO use are IGW models with considerably more range. A 767-400 cannot make the IAH-NRT flight nonstop. The aircraft are in different classes. The 777 is larger-which I thought was obvious. The aircraft holds more high-yield Business First seats as well. I gu...Jump to post

I don't like: CRJs-windows too low, Won't Fly: Any commuter non-jet smaller than an ATR-42. I will absolutely not fly EMB120 Brasilias. I've flown them a couple of times HOU-IAH, IAH-HOU on Coex. Happily the EFD flights are flown with ATRs now that the Brasilias are gone-and the route will go ERJ in...Jump to post
I don't think that it was supposed to represent Air Force 1. I believe it was really supposed to be the E4B. I want to say that they made a reference to it in a brief dialogue. BTW the movie is pretty good, just abbreviated from the book. AC340: The main difference that I could tell without spoiling...Jump to post
Rogue Trader: It's fine that you have pride in your Dallas. But the metropolitan area of Dallas is not that much larger than Houston's. Also the area encompasses Fort Worth as well. I'm not going to make it a mystery that I really dislike Dallas, but the fact of the matter is; AF as well as the othe...Jump to post
I haven't flown UA in many years-Since I'm from Houston I usually take Continental or Southwest; but I'll be flying out of MSY this time. Somebody else made the arrangements so I'm on UA. Do they still have the Channel 9 (ATC)? How is meal service? I'm guessing the same as everyone else. Any comment...Jump to post
The entire terminal complex is being redone. Southwest will have the large Y-shaped concourse and the other airlines will move into a new concourse as well. So all of the facilities will be new.
www.houstonairportsystem.com has all of the information--including model depictions.
CO didn't fly IAH-GUM back then. Certainly not with an A300. I remember a few A300 routes from IAH were: EWR, LAX, SAN, MSY, DEN, MEX. I flew EWR-IAH on an AB3 in 1994. In 1988 I was supposed to fly IAH-LAX on an AB3 but it had mechanical problems and we had to leave the next day on a 737. The 747s ...Jump to post
The flights from Hobby to IAH are convenient for those living on the southside of Houston. When the flights were still active-pre-9/11-they flew EMB120s and 737s. The flight is included in the fare of your connecting flight. It makes since because you get 500 onepass miles for a 15min-20min. The Ell...Jump to post
I'll address three topics in this post. 1st:I usually stay at the Luxor, and the pyramid rooms that face Mccarren afford nice views of the airport-take binoculars. 2nd: The 737-200s that are red and white are called 'Janet' Flights, and they do carry people to and from Groom Lake (Area 51). They typ...Jump to post
IAH offers fewer headaches. The IAB is nice and airy. A more laidback atmosphere. DFW is a joke, AA is trying to emulate CO's success at IAH. ATL is simply adequate if you are flying on Delta. Los Angeles is not geographically positioned as well as the others; and Chicago does not offer as many rout...Jump to post
