Any chance BDL see's any jet service from AC in the next year or two, at least to YYZ?Jump to post
Vegas is also huge for various industry trade shows and conventions and I am sure there are plenty of Southern New Englad roots living in the Vegs metro area, similar to Phoenix.Jump to post
With WN ending BDL-LAS, I feel this may be a good opportunity for Spirit to jump on this route. BDL has had LAS service on/off since the early 2000's, I believe America West was the first to offer non stop flights when LAS was a hub in the early 2000's. When America West left I believe Delta flew th...Jump to post
PVD is closer to GON than BDL is and its a quick ride up I-95 as opposed to the multi route drive to BDL. GON never had as far back I can remember much airline service but only at the end there were B1900's to PHL and those had low load factors. Not many airlines served the city at once, but there ...Jump to post

On non-facetious vein, I see UA migrating hubness from IAD to CLT. IAD has long-term expansion constraints, CLT does not. Could be UA is chasing more BoA business.
F9 announced BDL a few weeks back with 3x weekly (I believe seasonal) service to DEN, a route already flown by UA and WN. A couple days ago they also announced BDL-RDU (already served by DL) seasonal service and now I am hearing BDL-MCO (4 carries on the route) seasonal service starts in May. Any ot...Jump to post
Frontier is adding BDL - MCO; seasonal starting May 1, 2019. Makes me wonder what other seasonal adds is Frontier going to throw from BDL? (Montego Bay is saying pick me - lol). I am concerned, Frontier does not have the best track record of sticking around. I agree about the uncertainty with F9, t...Jump to post
Looks like Frontier is adding BDL-RDU. I wonder if Delta responds at all? This route has a long history dating back to the old Midway days and has continued being served by someone for at least 20 or more years. Before Midway, AA had 3 727s/day to the RDU hub. There was a break, as American Eagle s...Jump to post

New route starting in HVN (New Haven, CT) this weekend! First ever non stop service to Charlotte on American Eagle PSA CRJ-200.

Well that was certainly a letdown. Especially after recent news with the push for service to SEA, AUS, JAX, ect....

What are the odds that this is the year (2019) that BDL finally lands a flight to Seattle on either AS or DL?

BDL was my home airpor...Jump to post

It's interesting to me that BDL has always been considered Hartford's airport.

Must be because of the CT a...Jump to post

I just tried a random date for January on the app, picking the 18th. And yes there is a 321 on this route in addition to the 320.
As mentioned in the JetBlue network thread, B6 is adding PVD / BDL - PBI and reducing PWM to a summer-only destination. B6 already flys BDL-PBI.

And lets not forget the Basketball Hall of Fame is in Springfield just over the Connecticut/Mass border.

Assuming Aer Lingus had no flight cancellations, May through July numbers below:

BDL rebounded in July with 6.5% growth over last year after May (+0.8%) and June (+0.7%) had near flat growth. For the year BDL is up 3.5% over 2017 YTD with 3,837,766 passengers.

Who talked about driving to EWR? From New Haven, Amtrak takes around 2.5 hours to EWR station for around $30 with advance purchase, that sure is a lot easier than driving to EWR.

HVN-JFK as a flight???? That is served by COMMUTER rail AND Amtrak extremely frequent service. Just wouldn't make sense given how delay prone JFK is.
