If you're looking for information about the "progress" at BER, check out this link (in German; Google Translator does a good job with it) . . .

Just looking at route maps alone, not schedules, but UA is the only mainline US airline outside of AS, G4 and HA that doesn't make RDU look like a hub of some sort. So when will somebody throw down the gauntlet and hub RDU? Or will it be the ultimate focus city in the USA? Too bad AA didn't stick it...Jump to post
It would be great to paint the four main companies that formed British Airways: British Overseas Airways Corporation, British European , Cambrian and Northeast
AA were in serious financial difficulties at the time and were being restructured. Delta started Song in 2003. CO started Cal Lite in 1993. AA wasn't perpetually in financial distress. AA's Ch 11 filing came 11/29/11. Anybody remember the short-lived AA ad tag line, 'A great low fare and a lot more...Jump to post
The 717 was a stop-gap solution for DL, and while a great aircraft IMO, the 220 will do all what the 717 can do and a whole lot more. I'm a HUGE fan of 5 abreast and the 220-1 is the ONLY real option for replacement of the 717. The 220-3 is moving into the MD's area, its gonna be a winner.Jump to post
PIT would make a good focus city and BHM has a few markets that could be served on 50 seaters. HOWEVER, Via seems to be searching for a niche and I don't see BHM as one of their potential anchor cities. And their finances are shaky (?) at best. I wish them well.Jump to post
Last time ISP was flown from RDU was AA hub times I think...
The club seating on WN would probably qualify. 12 seats facing each other in the first two rows of the aircraft where they now get an extra row/6 seats in a traditional layout. Now, if they had charged a premium for that configuration it might have been revenue neutral, but that wasn't the WN way, a...Jump to post
I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of tourists have cancelled/postponed plans to visit DC until after many major museums/parks/tourist sites are back in full operation.
Terminal E is already bursting at the seams. Come on Massport, put some international arrivals facilities in Terminal A. If they have a schedule similar to JFK where they arrive at say 1 in the morning and then head out a few hours later around 8/9/10, there is plenty of room. Weird schedule for wh...Jump to post
[quote="jplatts"] While I agree that AS adding SEA-CVG isn't the only thing that is needed for AS to win the "Battle for Seattle", DL serving CVG nonstop from SEA has allowed DL to capture business traffic in the SEA market that AS isn't able to capture. CVG is also one of the la...Jump to post
Last I heard, they weren't really planning on hubs per se, rather point-to-point from secondary markets. https://airlinegeeks.com/2019/01/03/new-start-up-airline-moxy-places-order-for-60-airbus-a220-300-jets/ Think PVD, TTN, FTW, BUR and the like.

Kind of a shame that Chinese carriers wont be able to offer services to both airports from their hubs, say CX flying to both from CAN and URC for instance. So CA gets Beijing's "close-in" airport all to themselves basically. Not so sure PEK should be considered the "close in" ai...Jump to post

I would totally understand them all if it was mostly TSA and Go jet flying the flights but it isn't. EWR none of either. All 135/45s on expressjet and commutair.

Absolutely mind-blowing that UA flies zero mainline into STL, especially when peer cities have been getting equipment upgrades. Surely they can't be that weak in the St. Louis market?? One of the issues with UA and STL is that Trans States and Go Jet, 2 UAX carriers are based in STL, so we get tons...Jump to post
It's strange to me that STL-DTW on Delta is back to being all RJ. Sure seems like it could support some mainline service. I guess they're trying to flow more connections over MSP? Be careful opening the DTW can of worms on here ;) . Seriously though I've flown STL-DTW-XXX a few times and the oldest...Jump to post
None of my predictions ever come true for STL so I'll try a new approach: EK will NOT begin DXB-STL. LA will NOT begin LIM-STL. OZ will NOT begin ICN-STL. QF will NOT begin SYD-STL. There. Prove me wrong a year from now! :cool2: Still hoping for BA or EI or FI but alas, we always lose out to whereve...Jump to post
Used to fly OZ MWA to STL and then onward on FH-227Bs back around 1980. Those planes were rattle traps. Always felt like you were barely getting airborne as they groaned down the runway. I flew those a few times myself. Yes, they were shaky but they got the job done. Flew PIA-SPI-STL once and if we...Jump to post
SY is kinda slow to add cities too. WN started in 71 has 99 destinations served full time and a fleet of 750 aircraft, has never had a change of ownership has bought 2 competitors, and never filed a bankrupcty, and has shown a profit 45 years in a row. On the other hand SY started in 82 has 47 part...Jump to post
What happened to the Asia network acquired with the NW merge.?You had to NRT JFK,ATL,MSP,DTW,PDX,SEA,LAX,HNL, then connections to BKK,MNL Guam,Saipan etc.Plus the flight to China and Korea. And most of those routes were 747’s did DL make mistakes because fuel wasn’t very high or was it the Japanese...Jump to post

MCI can talk to anybody. Remember that "China Cargo HUB" STL was "supposed" to get? Whatever they can land, good for them, but don't hold your breath.Jump to post
Internationally, WN needs to decide if their domestic US operational paradigm will translate to non-leisure markets. I've never flown WN internationally and their offerings ex-STL via "wherever" are sparse indeed. I looked at the STL-NAS via FLL and dear GOD, a 5:45 am departure from STL a...Jump to post
This has "Delta is looking to move MSP-HND somewhere (SEA? ATL?), but if they wish, they can fly that route again" all over it. MSP does stand out like a sore thumb compare to all the other destinations that has a HND flight anyway (The only smaller market, PDEW-wise, is probably VIE, and...Jump to post
So that brings me to the other side of the discussion - if you're in STL and you're wanting to head down under, it appears your best bet is to fly through IAH or DFW, at least timewise. Asia - there's MSP or trekking up to ORD or over slightly to DTW. STL-DFW-Asia isn't that far out the way either,...Jump to post
Is anyone on here as "hip" as they were 10 years ago? IF (big IF) I was "hip" in my 20's it was long gone by my 30's. The problem with being "hip" is that whatever your definition of the term, there all always people younger than you and "hipper" than you. Not...Jump to post
And yet another reason why the whole talk and use of terms like "Legacy" and "LCC" and "ULCC" is just pointless and dumb. Use of such terms only make you "cool, bro" to other plane geeks who has to use such terms to be "cool, bro." it's like restaur...Jump to post
Will Congress ever add extra slots at DCA? WN actually has enough room at DCA to add more flights to within-perimeter domestic destinations out of DCA if extra slots are added at DCA or if WN can otherwise acquire slots from other airlines at DCA. There are also some within-perimeter nonstop routes...Jump to post
You have to remember that the press knows even less than he does. Once someone establishes themselves as an expert on a topic, they are the easy go-to for these folks.

This was to be Cathay Pacific first intercontinental route and this was the very start to their full international expansion as previously their network was based around Southeast Asia.

Another point is that Spirit is a point to point carrier, they don't have any responsibility toward the passenger who can't get onto the connecting flight. So every flight can leave whenever the boarding is completed. For AC, they have to provide accommodation including hotel; meal; re-routing for ...Jump to post
