I guess I hadn’t been paying attention but WN added a bunch more flights in this week. Ran 94 today (Monday) If I counted right. 77% of original pre COVID. Included 2x to PDX/SLC/SMF/SJC MDW back to 8X Do you know why they are scheduling the 2 PDX flights only a half hour or hour apart? This week t...Jump to post
Someone please explain this to me: The two crashes that led to the grounding were with 737-8 models. Now the certification flights are being done with a 737-7. Why? Wouldn't the longer fuselage of the -8 result in a bigger lever, which gives the trim inputs a bigger effect? Wouldn't you want to tes...Jump to post
Anyone know if AA BNA-LAX was originally 3x daily? I'm seeing it 3x Thu, Fri, Sat starting in October, and 3x daily starting in April. Is that new? It was 3x daily for many times during the year, with fluctuations down to 2x daily during slower points in the calendar year. It's a highly competitive...Jump to post

He’s gotta be a bot.

Man, I miss the paywall. There are other individuals who had mentioned WN possibly adding BN...Jump to post
This entire privatization ploy gets crazier every day. First it’s back after it was dead. Then it turns out Rex can still get paid back if they rush out the next proposal.

One more thing. Listening to a KMOX interview with the airport director.

Each will see restoration to previous departure levels and some growth this year. STL is conti...Jump to post
But it's coming back twice a day in mid-August, according to the online schedule. It's probably a very business-oriented route with high (for WN) fares.

CMH-SFO nonstop is bookable again on UA beginning Monday August 3rd (A319). The fact that Saturday and Sunday (8/1 and 8/2) are not bookable (but the other weekends in August are) makes me think it may not just be a placeholder.

Interesting that WN has added a 2nd daily flight to SJC most days but has yet to add back SFO. Neither has UA. Seems like SFO would be a priority. The only thing I can think of is there are more connection options thru SJC/OAK (and they are adding a 2nd SMF starting next weekend), so right now they...Jump to post

I would certainly take these loads with a grain of salt... travel really started plunging at the end of February but most routes were looking normal the first 2/3 of the month March 1st TSA numbers were 99.1% of the previous year.

Looking at TSA’s throughput numbers we’re at about 16-17% of 2019’s daily totals, but I’ve said all along airports like STL will bounce back up faster than some of the big hub cities like NYC, DC, LA, etc. WN helps, but it’s nice to see AA and UA adding back service.
