Many stories of Russian mafia running 'businesses' such as casinos, and including bringing ladies of the night out from Russia so their men can have more 'variety'. I can confirm this as I saw it with my own eyes on Bangla Street in Patong. There are 4 languages posted on signs going through Thai c...Jump to post
I know they wanted a recent development below 700.
I've seen the BA morning flight go over downtown Boston too.

Boston will not have 1000 foot buildings in it's immediate future though many under 500 are being built.
BOS has a fraction of the international traffic NYC has. I don’t see that route working for a day. Composition of the population matters, as do specific business ties, not just population size or volume of international traffic. BOS serves some international routes that NYC does not - and the same ...Jump to post

I did my last work trip of the year last week - a day trip to PHL.

And? B6 was at overcapacity too. It’s a dying tourism town with dwindling VFR. People don’t visit Puerto Rico like they used to, it’s a complete dump.

After London and Paris, YYZ/YUL are the next largest business markets out of BOS. YYZ yes but I'm not sure about YUL business ties to BOS that create a dire need to increase air travel. There's probably a fair amount of trucking materials between YUL and BOS catchments though. DUB FRA ZRH AMS SNN a...Jump to post
While searching for a winter/early spring getaway I noticed B6 quietly added another some other Caribbean/Latin America flying. I don't think these came up in OAG threads.

I’d like to get back on topic. Who thinks both AC and WS will be able to coexist on YYC-BOS? Personally I do in summer. I think so too.

Tuscon - Q1 - 90, Q2 - 90. Average fare of $314 in Q1 and $355 in Q2 with AA having the largest market share in both quarters. The fare level is pretty high here.

LAX is PVD’s largest unserved market but the distance and the general focus on BOS by most airlines are hurdles to that service ever happening.

Black Friday related - I was just at Costco and noticed that DL $500 gift cards can be purchased for $450 there. There is a max purchase of 3 and a max online redemption of 3.

I'm taking a look at PDEW numbers from Q1 and Q2. Looking at the top unserved markets out of BOS SMF - Q1 - 102, Q2 - 202. Average fare of $248 in Q1 and $300 in Q2. This is cheating a little bit since B6 does serve BOS-SMF. However, they do it seasonally and not even daily outside of that. SMF wil...Jump to post
Also, I think you would see ANA or some of the Chinese carriers show up in BOS before TK/JL got around to adding another frequency and that would suppress the possibility of them doubling up. Lets separate TK from East Asia Carriers - What NH would do is exclusive from TK. Here's my case why freque...Jump to post
There are several international carriers that do ‘double-daily’ to Boston in the high season.

In my dreams I would rather have SQ here via LHR than a non-stop to SIN :) They could probably make it happen with a pair of mid-day slots at LHR which might not be prohibitively expensive.

TAP should add more Africa destinations: CPT, JNB, etc. Not a lot of ties for Portugal and South Africa. Mozambique is a different story. Uh?

Of the cities in contention (supposedly), I think BOS comes up last. Eventually, maybe, but IMO not this go-around.

Central America in general is deserving of more presence from the Boston market. The amount of Guatemalans, Salvadoreans and Hondurans in the Providence-Boston area is supportively high. B6 already having the lock on the New England scene would make several of these routes winners from the gate. It...Jump to post
UA does nothing but its hubs into BOS. B6 is TP's best buddy in the USA though. Yes and no. Yes, TP more aggressively offers interline options with B6, but TAP continues to enjoy ATI with United (and codeshares on some UA flights). Not in the JV anymore but they were at one point. http://www.sterli...Jump to post
The ascendency of BOS notwithstanding, I also agree that Logan will be last on this totem pole.

Though SIN is a massive hub - the flows are not the greatest from the 3 USA destinations mentioned.
