Re: Philadelphia Aviation Thread - 2020

Something's gotta give though especially if AA is looking to expand PHL further when the XLR comes online. XLR's should be able to depart from B and C.

During my few times looking at PHL-MCO / MLB flights, MLB was much higher compared to MCO that the extra ~1hr drive to MCO from where I was visiting wasn't an issue. I'm talking $200+ difference.
