Re: Bradley International Airport (BDL) and Norwegian Air Shuttle?

For the month of October, EI flew 6,976 passengers between BDL-DUB-BDL Not sure on how many flights operated in October, I know of at least 2 canceled flights during the month. I feel the Dublin flight should do well. Aer Lingus not only hopes to attract the people driving to Boston or New York in t...

Re: Irish 13/16: Sixteen, going on seventeen!

For those of you earlier wondering where QR would operate from in DUB, it's showing in the GDS as Terminal 1. In other DUB related news, apparently an extension to Pier 1 (that's Pier D in old money) has now commenced, and also a new transfer facility at Pier 4 (Pier E in old money). Interesting ne...

Re: Incredible error fares today

I was lucky to purchase a JFK-AUH-JFK flight on Etihad during their December 2014 fare mistake for $218 round trip in coach. I ended up upgrading using Etihad's business upgrade auction and secured upgrades to business class both ways for around $2,000, well worth it. Plus all miles were credited to...

Re: BDL UPS Cargo Ops

Big day for them. Usually a ghost town when I'm up there. BDL, being in such close proximity to the EWR hub, will never get the number of FX flights that a similar-sized metro in a densely populated state would be expected to have. So much freight is trucked. Much of the Northeast is this way. I'm ...

Re: BDL UPS Cargo Ops

First 6 flights with the exception of ALB are probably going to be carrying a lot of 2 Day volume. With the Amazon facility there, they are pumping out a lot more volume. ALB is going to probably be more of an overflow flight than anything. Split the aircraft into basically BDL and ALB. ORD and JFK...

BDL UPS Cargo Ops

I know BDL is or used to be a UPS sorting hub but I don't remember seeing as many flights in the past. On Tuesday BDL had 10 UPS departures, I assume this is for the Christmas rush? Can anyone provide any information on BDL's cargo operations, specifically UPS? Tuesday's UPS BDL departures listed be...

Re: Norwegian is opening a base at Stewart New York Airport

Having used many (if not most) of Ryanair's secondary airports, it is easy to forget that those secondary airports also serve additional areas and people better. Everyone in airliners.net focus on swanky lounges, time to the center-of-everything-in-the-major-city and all those Monocle magazine urba...

Re: Wow Air to begin PIT-KEF (year round 4x weekly)

I won't count on them coming to BDL soon - as they will have EI to fend off, which offer a better product for a fairly reasonable price. EI and WOW have completely different business models and customer base. The market from New England ot Ireland is so large that EI has little interest in selling ...

Re: Rumor: Emirates to start Phoenix and Buffalo

I don't believe they fly to Detroit, maybe its an error and they meant Detroit considering on a map it inst that far off? Buffalo doesn't seem remotely possible even with the distance to Canada. Phoenix on the other hand isnt that crazy IMO.

Re: DL's BDL-CLE route

Back when Continental flew the route it was usually 4x daily with at times 2-3 mainline 737's. Obviously a lot of those pax were connecting but you would think there has been a solid O&D between the 2 cities for a while. Delta has always been strong at BDL. For years MCO, TPA, PBI, FLL, and RSW ...

Has the old section of BDL been demolished?

Re: American will trim some flights as part of 'rebanking' its PHL hub

We did? Of the 4 US hubs I figured PHL stood to gain the most from the merger. I thought PHL would be seeing new/resumed services to places like EGE, GRU, GVA, MEX, NRT, OMA and SNA - not enduring all kinds of domestic and international cuts (BGM, BRU, EDI, ELM, FWA, HPN, SAT, SMF, TLV, YHZ and ZRH...

How is BDL on the decline? Passenger numbers are up, recently becoming more flat but still positive growth and should be over 6 million passengers for the first time since 2008.
