Looking into heading to DC at the end of March to use up unused 2018 vacation time. Would like to keep this trip easy and reasonably priced as possible. Planning on three or four nights will be flying into DCA from Manchester, New Hampshire. Was thinking on staying near the airport and taking the bl...Jump to post
Why do people keep discussing MHT getting international service? It's not going to. Manchester is not an existing port of entry like Portland and Portsmouth are. The federal government has proven stingy about hiring adequate CBP staff at existing ports of entry. The only reason why PSM is an intern...Jump to post
The airline business is funny and fickle. I really don't believe the name change to 'Manchester-Boston-Regional' had anything to do with its backward slide, nor do I think a new name will help it revive. Airlines do what they do based on things that are more macro than that. However, I'm cautiously...Jump to post

UPS has been flying 757s between MHT and RFD. So that alone may account for their increase. Within the area of MHT, UPS has opened a giant logistics center that may be why the RFD flight exists. Or it may be entirely coincidental. It may not be a strong limb, but I’ll go out on it anyway: AA will l...Jump to post

Would that engine still be operating or would they had shut it down?Jump to post
So I finally got a chance to complete an update on my analysis for Massport numbers going all the way back to 1998 (fun task i can tell you copying from PDF's by month) and here it is. Usual formats for reporting (Month, YTD, Year and Rolling), I have run 2 sets of analysis, every year for the last...Jump to post

Southwest does reasonably well at MHT, but their overall numbers are falling, the worst case scenario for Manchester would be a large reduction in WN service as a result of falling pax numbers. Cutting down to 3x / day to BWI or cutting Florida flights would be near apocalyptic for MHT. I didn't se...Jump to post
By far the best places to see the B-52 would be Barksdale AFB in Louisiana and Minot AFB in North Dakota, the only two bases where they're stationed. For the B-1, Dyess AFB in Texas and Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota are the places to go. And, Whiteman AFB in Missouri is your go-to for the B-2. I un...Jump to post

I’m sure although those short RJ flights to EWR are so brutal for delays when EWR has weather.
Southwest then has less competition and jacks up prices (no longer a low-cost airline, at least definitely not out of MHT), which only drives more leakage to BOS. It is a troubling trend here at MHT, and even the most pessimistic among us felt things would turn around long ago. But as far as Southw...Jump to post
Lots of doom and gloom written about MHT. That said, I think AA is actually growing at MHT. There is no reason UA shouldn't be, except for themselves. They don't have a focus city at BOS and little reason to want to send MHT flyers there because they may defect to other airlines. That was my point:...Jump to post
For MHT to say a positive. I would think a shift to IAD is a win for most flyers. EWR is much worse on delays in winter and all year really. IAD is the better place to connect for most people more of the time. Does the fact that the CRJ700 has a first class cabin help with the yields verse the EWR ...Jump to post
I see that BGR is losing its flights to JFK at the end of November which leaves Delta and AA only to LGA and UA to EWR, which now MHT is dropping EWR for IAD which leaves no service to the NYC metro area. I would hate to be a business located in Manchester that has business in NYC...now they have t...Jump to post

As a longtime PASM member, I thank you for the compliment.
That’s great to hear! Went to Pima last November great museum. Now I’ll definitely have to go back. How does PIMA compare to Udvar-Hazy? Udvar-Hazy takes the cake, but Pima has some good stuff like being able to walk in the DC4 Air Force One that JFK used and cool things like that. Theres also A10s...Jump to post

Rainy days make the mind wonder sometimes. With AA seeming to be the only airline right now somewhat interested in Manchester would a flight to PHX or DFW work? As mentioned before it would be nice to have a Midwest flight out of the snow belt. How did Southwest do on the PHX route back when they la...Jump to post

With UA ORD flight from MHT axed (hopefully not for too long) why would WN go less than daily to MDW?

On October 13 I am scheduled to fly from Fort Myers to Manchester on DL. My booking was RSW-LGA-MHT. But I have discovered that they've switched me to RSW-ATL-MHT, and the ATL-MHT leg is shown as a 737-700.

I’d like to see “Boston” go as well from the name. Just try and do it in a way to not spends all kinds of money changing signage wall coverings etc. keep the same logo and everything just as renovations happen just change it to “Manchester airport”.Jump to post
Thanks for the advice everyone. A family member told me that Death Valley wasn’t that great I’m glade to here otherwise. I was hoping to get to Fremont Street. Any suggestions on parking for the strip? I was thinking the MGM garage on Tropicana ave looks like an easy in and out.Jump to post
