I'd be more excited if I could fly BDL beyond Pittsburgh. $200 roundtrip. Somehow they manage to keep going. I'm not sure how. Too expensive to really be a LCC, let alone an ULCC NO FF base to tap into. Not enough name recognition for corporate travel and business types to book IMO maybe someone can...Jump to post
With this add from Frontier (4× weekly), BDL will now have up to 10 flights to MCO on a daily basis. I know New Englanders love Florida and the Orlando area but that seems like a lot of seats to one city, especially since Frontier has loaded an A321 into the system as making the aircraft for the fl...Jump to post
Is it perhaps Burbank, San Jose, Norfolk and Omaha.?
They are mentioned in this article.

JFK has been year round for quite a while now, so making it seasonal, even by just cutting it for a month is a surprise somehwat. I'm pretty sure they have some FF who aren't used to that. I'm surprised they don't add a sun destination from JFK and let themselves have a MSP-JFK--------------anywhere...Jump to post
if the A220 can work with the short runway at HVN, i’m sure moxy will take full advantage. I agree. The reason HVN is so "sad" is that it hasn't had any decently priced service in years. flying to Hubs is expensive and connecting through them are expensive so people drive to BDL, HPN or P...Jump to post
People here seems to be so interested in For Worth’s airports. Have Moxy planed to try TKI and DTO out? Or does the Wrights Amendment ban it? I'm wondering along similar lines. Will go go to what are more like Tertiary airports and connect them to secondary and primary cities. I'm thinking about pl...Jump to post
It'll be like California Pacific, IMHO. They have much more going for them than California Pacific. I'm pretty sure the aircraft in Eastern colors are relatively new. I imagine they will try to go the route of Allegiant, Spirit, Frontier, etc, or they could do scheduled operations the way Dynamic a...Jump to post

No Dash 8's on those routes.
The Q400 is a variant of the Dash 8. Where do you think the “DHC-8” in “DHC-8-Q402” comes from?
She kicks and spits and refuses to talk to anyone who approaches her while she screams gobbledygook at a plane landing.

There isn’t much credabiity in the article. All very superficial with no substanance, just tittle tattle from an analyst.

Could we see B6 add a route to JFK to cover some of this capacity lost? Or will they just continue to flow it through FLL?Jump to post
Not to make light of the situation, which seems to have been exacerbated by the flight crew, but of course this was my first thought: https://i.postimg.cc/w1z7hnbq/lifevest.jpg And this: https://i.postimg.cc/18RyRSjq/assume-crash-positions2.jpg I appreciate your sense of humor.

I fly to BDL a few times a year and really like the Airport. Easy in and out. 3X a week to DEN on F9? Will the Governor show up in 3 months when F9 cancels? :spin: This governor will be out of office by then. It certainly is a letdown, unless you fit your weed under the seat in front of you. It can...Jump to post
Would LEVEL take over IB's operations in the Caribbean? I doubt HAV, SDQ and SJU are markets for IBs Business Class; those times $$$ are gone. Not long time ago, someone was saying that LEVEL dropped PUJ because it wasn't performing as expected. I remember reading something like "young people ...Jump to post

SWF would be a great option for WOW. Not head to head against Icelandic and they can capture a lot of connecting European tourists headed to NY if they package it with a bus the way Norwegian does. DY doesn't have the connections on the European end, so there is plenty of market to co exist for both.Jump to post
cheapest ways to fly Business or First on an A380. ...which, as one might imagine, is likely a big reason why they're stopping this. ;) Glad I took advantage while I could! It was my first time ever in business. The Lamb Biryani was fabulous, and I recall finding a half full bottle of champagne in ...Jump to post
While it isn't huge news, the BKK-HKG leg of the route was one of the shortest and cheapest ways to fly Business or First on an A380. Emirates from mid-January 2019 is reducing capacity on Dubai – Bangkok – Hong Kong route, currently served by 2-class A380 aircraft (selected dates served by 3-class)...Jump to post
I just noticed something. Flair will have 0% USA point-of-sale. If you go on their website, it's impossible to booked MIA-YEG. Only YEG-MIA is possible for example. I just tried also, and no luck.

Cabo Verde is gaining a lot of traction lately as a sun & holiday destination for Europeans; kind of the new Canarias. This will be useful to make flights to Europe work.

This was already discussed somewhere - too lazy to find the thread. haha, I was thinking the same thing. I like this title better.

Another thing I hate most about GLA is the expensive and unreasonable bus services at £8 one way for 20 minutes. Come on, this is like a daylight robbery. You can travel from Glasgow to Edinburgh on Citylink for about the same price, but on a much longer distance. I realise that many UK airports ha...Jump to post

Yes, since every airline *HAS* to merge with every other airline, I'll throw out odds on Ultimate Air Shuttle. I should say. I'm not one of those who thinks every carrier needs to merge. I am used to the speculation on here however. I do feel strongly though that if Spirit, Frontier, Allegiant and ...Jump to post
Piggy backing off of an above comment: Spirit is a name we keep hearing at CLT. I asked somebody who works for the airport actually last week, “we are still talking to them, it’s close.” Take that with a grain of salt of course. I'd love to see Charlotte have Spirit. They could easily do CLT-FLL, M...Jump to post
Interesting move. Yes seems like Scoot must be an attractive platform for SIA. The mix of 737 and A320 on their certificate, however, will create some inefficiency. Wonder if this is short term solution, or if Scoot will be mixed fleet operator of narrowbodies? How will this affect transfers? Can y...Jump to post
Maybe they're watching to see how F9 performs. F9 saw good results with AUS, so NK may have felt there was opportunity to get into AUS, especially with F9's less than daily service.

How is adding 2x per week spring seasonal service solidifying DFW? My thoughts exactly..Going for the left overs from AA, WN, and NK on the PHX-DFW route? On Dallas-PHX it's going against (tomorrow's schedule) 1x Spirit and 11x AA. On DAL-PHX it's 6x WN. Both AA and WN get connecting traffic on bot...Jump to post
They have been announcing very small additions. Such as 2x weekly. I imagine they are maximizing their utilization rates. What are their plans for adding new A/C?
