Please excuse the post above, I made an error revising the post. By the way,Interesting, if that is the case, Xtra could change its name to Eastern and grow bigger.
Someone has bought Eastern and it's intellectual property for a large sum. Buyer is still unknown. Where did you get this info from? All of EA's pilots were served today with a notice that they will have to reinterview with the new 'owner' for their jobs. Ah ok, I hope this new buyer does a good jo...Jump to post
I think we need to realize one thing. As fun as it is to dream, IAH is not underserved internationally (especially considering all the foreign carriers). IAH has all it really needs from a long haul basis. Having gone through UA's last presentation, its clear what UA envisions IAH to be: their gate...Jump to post
The rise in oil prices should be good news for IAH finally.Jump to post
I can see IAH-NRT/LHR/AMS IAH-LHR/AMS on the 77W? No way. No how. IAH-NRT.......a very very long shot. Already confirmed the 773ER isn't coming to IAH and strictly to EWR/SFO. Not sure where he's going with this...? Oh well, my bad... on the domestic side there are rumors of EWR-IAH as the first do...Jump to post

Looks like IAH will see brighter days ahead, probably not like it was in 2014.

Oh please - the hub has shrunk from 620 flights to 491 flights in 2 years and he mentioned there were capacity cuts as well. At this point I think you're delusional. I already new about that, but not all of that shows your point, I even said there were capacity cuts, but there was a reduction in rj...Jump to post
Thanks for that insight COD10! Some people are just ignorant to facts. Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit I see. I said oil jobs which were dominant "can go away and never come back" which were corrupted by overseas oil companies. It's sick that you would want that corruption in...Jump to post
Thanks for that insight COD10! Some people are just ignorant to facts. And good riddance, those jobs can go away and never come back IMHO. What a sick comment. As someone who has had their share of airline relocations and layoffs, I wouldn't wish that against my fiercest competitor. Reading compreh...Jump to post
This, without a doubt definitely isn't true. They've scaled back frequencies to major business destinations as well. Numbers are down, can't deny it. Nope, and where are you getting the info to back up these assertions, would love to see you back it up with actual evidence. I follow IAH alongside L...Jump to post
You aren't asking anything, you are just rambling on about Houston. I said in a previous post that UA isn't going to open a hub in Florida. Have you looked at where IAH has shrunk? Most of what they have gotten rid of were oil based routes or reductions in places that fed oil based routes. This, wi...Jump to post
Even then, they say that the energy industry in IAH with the level spend of business travel that was seen in the early/mid 2000s will not be coming back. All those backfill of planes seem to be tied up at SFO or DEN though. First, did you advocate removing planes from a profitable hub to start flyi...Jump to post
Didn't want this thread to get lost, but where are they building this at on IAH? I read north of Will Clayton and east of the Terminal complex in one post. Thank you, I guessing east of the current hangars as there is a lot of green space there, or are they building over the current complex using t...Jump to post
No they haven't. They've stated time and time again that IAD is profitable and isn't going anywhere. Their best shot would some P2P and using Silver Airways as a partner in FLL or MCO. Even then, Smisek-era decision making shut the door as Silver being a feeder for them. I'd even be curious how a f...Jump to post
[*] Nice! Great to see UA continue to invest at IAH! Looks like we will get some 77W and 35J service. Don't hold your breath. Just because the PR says a new MX hangar doesn't mean aircraft will start serving Houston. Oh well... one can only hope. But it is nice to see UA expand its facilities at IAH.Jump to post
I just read that Ed was forced out. I don't get it. Obviously he didn't see eye to eye with others. I know Eastern has lots of work to do if they plan to go scheduled. Especially in terms of their website. It would be interesting to learn more about them, and get some updates on their plans. They h...Jump to post

Looks like Houston Airports efforts to weather the oil downturn have been paying off, as international traffic continues to grow! This has helped them absorb some of the pressure of the decline in domestic traffic due to the downturn.
http://centreforaviation.com/analysis/h ... ows-297984
Here is an article that explains how the downturn has affected UA.
2016 has been a tough year for IAH, but with the stabilizing of Oil prices and Houston economy, 2017 might be a better year.

It would be nice, but I am not holding my breath. Not certain if Houston could support another Asian service, even if the economy was still hot. Still if they want to give it a shot, well, the more, the merrier. Same here, maybe there could just be still be one more opening left. Hopefully, they do...Jump to post

Ok...this is starting to get annoying. . I would dispute #5. Houston Real Estate is actually not doing well especially in high end areas of town like The Woodlands.

Ok...this is starting to get annoying. You have one group of people who cannot seem to get it through their skulls that Houston is not what it once was.

Houston's future is simple: stabilization. The days where Houston was gaining new service hand over fist are gone for now. However, these disaster scenarios where UA cuts back service dramatic or there is a mass exodus of international carriers are rubbish. So to sum it up, don't look for a large n...Jump to post
