Of course the long running discussion about Norwegian starting Edinburgh-Stewart. No news about it besides what has already been discussed.

There is a new tab on PANYNJ website listing new services at their airports, which is interesting: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/newservice.html.

It doesn't say it's released, it says they're looking into it. Still I think it would be great, however it doesn't say what New York airport they'll be using or what type of aircraft.

True but I doubt that they would have told the media about it if they didn't plan on starting it.

Very possible, they still got a piece of unused land left to extend it with. However it would mean the planes would fly lower over the residential areas on the approach or departure route. Long Island MacArthur currently has quite a short runway which limits operations from there, therefor it's not a serious alternative to the big New York airports. It's too short for TATL flights. A little more length would make a difference.

In terms of Norwegian at JFK, I can tell you they are planning on doubling the crew base size, where they will park them is anyone's guess at this point as T1 is maxed out at space for aircraft, their flights often take delays just waiting for gates.

Norwegian should have received a new aircraft today - and will receive 9 more this year, 8 of which will be arriving in a period of under 6 months, quite a reach of growth for a such a small carrier, in effect basically almost doubling in size in 6 months... Expect to see some rumored cities from JFK pop up in the next two months as well as a few surprises late in the year.

Norwegian Planned Delivery Schedule
1/20/2017 - EI-LNM - AerCap Leasing
5/19/2017 - EI-LNN - CIT Leasing
7/13/2017 - EI-??? - AerCap Leasing
7/31/2017 - EI-??? - Norwegian Owned
8/11/2017 - EI-??? - AerCap Leasing

do you think the second LATAM flight to SCL, santiago Chile, will be changed to a 789 like the first? Why operate one 763 and one 789? When will it be changed over?

I would expect them to start anything new out of EWR instead as JFk is now full. Rumors are too that they might switch to T4. There is also the possibility that they might park the aircraft at a stand at T1.

As a spotter who goes to JFK almost every weekend I do have to agree with you. T1,T7 and T2 are in quite bad shape.

No. There is a 9:30 and an 11:30 to santiago SCL, the earlier of which is used by a 789. The latter is a 763. I searched google flights because I am meeting a spotting friend down there.

Great question. I would suspect DL would want to add to their gates on T4. Love the SkyClub there, though, it's quite nice.

Why can't Norwegian split their operation between T1 and T7/T4?

Ah I see. Before you told me I never knew that there was a second daily flight. It must be new. I doubt that it would change though. Hope this helps and have a good time spotting with your friend ;)!

I never thought about that. I would think though that airlines would prefer being in one terminal if they don't have such a big amount of flights at the airport.

With Cathay Pacific having left T7, and United having left T7, I'm surprised Norwegian doesn't consider moving to T7. (British Airways could always park a plane at a hardstand shared with JetBlue, and Ukraine International could also be parked at a remote hardstand; there is rarely hardstand usage anymore at T7. The problem, of course, is whether IAG (who has the master lease on T7) would welcome a direct competitor or not.

How do passengers get to hardstands at T7? I thought the Worldport is the only terminal that uses Plane Mates.

Apparently, there was a massive renovation being done at T7 which held off Norwegian from being able to go there till it was completed. Word is Norwegian jumped at it, only to find out that BA had pulled for the all the leases there and refused a sublease... Good olde competition at hard at work. But that's just hearsay, not sure if there is any truth.

The idea is that after planes are unloaded, at least one BA plane and the PS 767 would be towed to a hardstand to make other gates available. BA would have at most 4 planes parked when the DY planes come in (the first 2 to Heathrow, plus to London City and Paris Orly) at a 12-gate terminal, plus one FI, one LO, and one IB, leaving 5 gates available. (Remember, CX has moved in with the other non-IAG oneworld airlines to T8.)

If T8 is unavailable, I would say that Terminal 4 is a better option for at least some flights.

This would likely be cost prohibitive. When checking in 5 flights at a terminal, you can disperse the check-in over many agents doing it easily. However, three different terminals require three different teams, each with frontline ticket counter, front line gate, manager and supervisors for each. It's a great idea, just not really feasible yet for a 5 aircraft operation for a low-cost airline.

Oh, in regards to hardstands. They have been looking at parking at where T3 was and offloading. Recently when they are short gates and the aircraft has to sit, they have been towing the aircraft to a T1 pad next to the JAL 787 and cleaning and servicing it there before bringing it back to the gate.

Which gate would the plane mate depart T7 for the hardstand? Where is the hardstand that T3 used?

The T3 hardstand is where Delta parks planes these days, in addition to the area by the former Tower Air terminal. When Delta's T4 expansion is complete and T2 can be demolished, I suspect that that area could also become an area where boarding and alighting are done by airstairs (non-Delta IAT flights may occasionally use hardstands and airstairs as well).

Also, does Norwegian have any plans to convert A320neo orders to A321neoLR orders?

Oh, in regards to hardstands. They have been looking at parking at where T3 was and offloading. Recently when they are short gates and the aircraft has to sit, they have been towing the aircraft to a T1 pad next to the JAL 787 and cleaning and servicing it there before bringing it back to the gate.

Would DL permit that?

Any chance we see Qatar returning to EWR in the near future? I saw in other topic forums a few people post they were seriously considering a return.

It would be great if they added a third frequency, even if sub-daily, into Newark, to compete with Emirates and Swiss. An A330-300 could be used to compete against Swiss if the arrival time is better.

I never thought about that. I would think though that airlines would prefer being in one terminal if they don't have such a big amount of flights at the airport.

Norwegian could switch terminals with Aerolineas Argentinas or Ukraine Air.

Not sure that BA would want that.

No, but the Port Authority can pressure BA to accept the re-shuffle. You cannot make everyone happy when there is a gate shortage.

I don't think the PA would want to pressure BA over giving slots to DY as BA has more flights to JFK then DY does.

Actually, it appears to be staying at 5 weekly...how they can't do daily while EVA does double daily is mysterious.

Oh my mistake! Maybe EVA is cheaper or the market isn't big enough for 4x daily flights? Don't forget that Eva's 2x daily flight is still quite new so there is a chance that if it doesn't do we'll then they might stick with just one daily instead.

Overall EVA is bigger in NA that China Airlines, that might be the reason. Also When I checked it seems like EVA was about 100$ cheaper.
for most people the sky is the limit. for those who love aviation, the sky is home...

New York Metro area has the busiest airspace in the world & we have nothing to talk about! Let's fire something up on this forum! Xiamen starts JFK in a few weeks. Emirates finally launches EWR. LGA being rebuilt & so on.

Which gate will Xiamen use? What is the status of the Laguardia demolition? Which gate will Emirates use?

Terminals remain the same, but gates can change on a daily basis due to a variety of reasons. Xiamen Terminal 4 at JFK, Emirates Terminal B at EWR.
