Re: David Neeleman Raising Funds for New U.S. Airline

Southwest started as that alternative airports airline, and Neeleman likely thinks the time is ripe for another to try it. Fort Worth, Concord Regional, Gary, or a dozen others have potential in growing urban areas. And someone needs to take on the political monopoly Delta has bought in Atlanta. Se...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

In light of the fast moving storms in the New England area yesterday, I thought I would check out any diversions and I found this odd one. SkyWest from ORD to MHT flew around the line of storms, then flew right over MHT on its way to diverting directly to BOS without any attempt at landing or holdin...

Re: PSA Outage

The rest of AA is operating fine. It's just PSA.
Being a Friday in June, there is probably very little slack in the rest of the system to accommodate all of these stranded passengers. High load factors are great for airlines, until something happens.

MHT is down 4.4%for March while cargo is up 10% year to date. When I see numbers down, I have to ask if it's because demand is down or capacity is down. It seems that load factor was higher than a year ago, so I'm guessing a capacity cut drove down numbers. Remember, on most airlines those last few...

Re: 2018 KMHT Growth opportunities

As a side note, I saw Brewer walking through the MHT terminal when I was there on business recently. I expected him to take toe opportunity to interact with people using the airport like Dillon always did. Instead, I couldn't catch up with him as he was bee-lining his way with his coffee from the Ga...

Re: 2018 KMHT Growth opportunities

I'll jump in as well. I'm not particularly wed to any one airport, but I do like to see the regional airports throughout Northeast and New England do well. I probably follow PVD, MHT and PWM the closest, especially since WN first came into the region and stimulated the market. Having a true LCC at P...

Re: Southwest Airlines Hints At Fleet Upgrades If The Tax Bill Passes

I wonder if Southwest will start a flight from DAL to MHT with these new planes. Both of these airports have runways and gates. Southwest flies from DAL to BOS, but BOS is not MHT. Also, AA does not serve MHT from DFW. Will WN start service from DAL to MHT due to Trump’s Christmas Tax blessings? Ma...

Re: AA summer 2018 adds

I would ask why no ORD-MHT on AA? MHT is a bigger market than either BTV or PWM! UA with their rj's would allow AA to get the market with 2 E-175 flights a day. Probably because WN already does MHT-Chicago, taking a bunch of O&D. AA probably figures they would grab less O&D from MHT than th...

Wow! Another slap to the face of MHT by omission!

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BVT/HVN)

It looks like the City of Manchester just elected a new Mayor. Since Brewer it a City employee, I wonder the new mayor will give MHT management a fresh look or it she will look the other way like the outgoing mayor. MHT seems to be one of the very few shrinking airports in these days of growth and r...
