I don't know about 757s, but IDA can certainly handle 320s and 737s.
Longest runway is 2,500 feet longer and 2,000 feet lower than JAC - definitely fine for a 757.
Is there any reason NYC-MCI should be DL's turf? They are not that large in MCI, comparable in size to AA. With B6/AS codeshares, AA will have the best network out of MCI for business flyers. Uh Delta was flying this route solo for years, along with MCI-JFK when they merged with NW. Southwest had n...Jump to post
When you are the only airline who has been flying it, I’d say it’s your turf. That said, Delta hasn't done itself any favors lately letting AA back in. It will be interesting to see if they try to defend any. They were quite a bit bigger pre covid than AA and had a better route map (NYC/BOS/LAX/SEA...Jump to post
So with AA restarting LGA-MCI and DL on it 2-4x, and then WN coming back with it sometime in the fall, this route gets competitive. Factor in B6 starting JFK next year I wonder if DL will make some upgauges on this. They’ve been solid on this route for years and now they have to go up against a rat...Jump to post

I actually think they just hit DAB where it hurts. Granted I think DAB and SFB are closer than MLB and SFB.Jump to post
I see NK as going directly after WN markets. F9 is going after a lot of markets that the Big4 don't serve directly, so that will hurt connection yields of the big 3 most likely. Again, WN used to have a lot of monopolies on these middle of America leisure routes and NK has invaded a lot of those ma...Jump to post
Any chances of DL returning to SWF? AA went back earlier this year. Also seeing MCI-MSP/DTW has been upgauged back to mainline with 717s returning to DTW-MCI. Wonder how they’re cycling them up to DTW from ATL since they closed the 717 base. DL has a 717 pilot base at ATL and DTW. They closed the 7...Jump to post
Just a few years ago they were making good money at ISP, even with LGA in existence right next door. I bet they could if they tried. New York area to Florida is a huge market, even after the pandemic. Hopefully after this summer trend of travel-to-outdoorsy-areas dies down they can add more ISP fli...Jump to post
Why is ISP-FLL/TPA gone? Those used to be such popular routes for them. I can sorta understand FLL with the cruise industry out still, but south Florida is a big market for LI, you’d think they’d be able to get at least one daily 737 to profitable loads. I really hope they bring those back to daily...Jump to post
Kinda interesting there was no MCO No Islip either. I am a little surprised Islip. According to the Airways article, more announcements will be staggered through July. I'm pretty surprised there's no Islip too. This has to be coming. Also surprised they're using major airports as bases. I would hav...Jump to post

What’s the over/under on B6 re-entering the CMH market? Given their additions with the A220, and the fact that NYC-CMH is a quite high fare route (given its length) which is basically price fixed between the US3. I understand that B6 pulled out of CMH back in 2007 but has the market changed enough ...Jump to post
The standard is usually that schedules are finaled 45 days in advance to firm aircraft rotations, crew rostering, ATC and airport operations. That said, changes have and do occur within that window. If you are flying a city-pair that has frequent flights, a change will likely not be significant, an...Jump to post
I'm wondering if this is only the beginning and we will see more retaliation from DL when B6 launches MCI and MKE from both JFK and BOS. DL's onboard product is the most similar to B6 and they're flying RJs to MKE and MCI from LGA. I'd assume they may consider upgauging when these new flights start?Jump to post
737-700’s?? I thought that they were only going the -800 route. 147 seats is not STUFFED sardines, so respectable. They have to be dirt cheap to acquire right now I can't speak to their future plans, but HVN's sole runway is only 5,600 feet. The -800 is fine on that in the dry but any contamination...Jump to post
With the new codeshare and BOS AA flights that were just announced at STL, I don't think they will even come to STL Not sure. AA is re-launching LGA-MCI and B6 is coming in afterwards. I don't see why they wouldn't go to STL at some point. STL airport director said that with AA launching 2 daily ma...Jump to post
It's still an artificial limit on competition. In a country that pride itself to be the kind of free competition, this restriction is asinine. While I am generally for markets as little restricted as possible, commercial airports in urban areas have a lot of externalities. Airplanes don't simply us...Jump to post
Very, very, very positive news to see B6 heading to Kansas City, and they're doing it before STL too! First things first is when AA resumes LGA-MCI in September, then B6 will head in probably about 6-8 months later. Will be nice to see mainline jets on an NYC route again other than the single unrel...Jump to post
I wish AA would start JFK-BOM/BLR competing with UA/DL. Due to limited non-stop competition UA's EWR-BOM is on a high J 77W instead of the 789. I guess AA didn't want to compete with DL on JFK-BOM. DL doesnt fly JFK BOM anymore, they quit the route in 2020 due to covid, got rid of the 777lr that wa...Jump to post

Finally B6 will open the door to Canadian Ops. I forsee way down the line some Canada to Florida opportunities. Interesting times. Open the door? The door's been open for transborder flights before JetBlue even existed - see the 1995 treaty. JFK-YVR may prove a decent route for B6 - but it's going ...Jump to post

I can't imagine EYW being able to handle many diversions. There's not a whole lot of space on the ramp. Nor a runway large enough to accommodate most aircraft. You could probably land an A321 at EYW in a pinch with the runway being dry and (necessarily) fuel being low. But the passengers are going ...Jump to post

those people can easily fly out of EWR or JFK. People aren't going to connect unless WN undercuts in pricing. WN has little loyalty in NY area. People will pick DL/UA connection options out of NYC ahead of WN connection options. LGA-BWI is a slot squatting tactic until demand out of LGA comes back....Jump to post
You missed tphuang's point: people don't need to connect to get to LGA (or more broadly NYC). The NYC airports typically have n/s service to 200+ destinations. LGA isn't GRR or ISP! Anyone who wants to travel beyond perimeter and depart from LGA needs to connect. those people can easily fly out of ...Jump to post
As another DAB spotter, there are no issues with gate space. There is some space where they can use a remote gate, and if they were intersted they could renovate the international terminal. However, there is a run-up area used by some of the flight schools that is relatively close to terminal which...Jump to post
