Thanks for the weekly update!! Does anyone know if Amazon still flying to PDX? That flight has been coming through daily around early afternoon and all of sudden it stopped...

More interesting disparity on PDX/SEA to WAS:

SEA ~2x pax • 7x nonstops • 10x seats
(Q1 2018)

Enroute to PDX from OGG N202HA (A321), HA40, the long-awaited resumption of Hawaiian Airlines service from Maui to Portland and return. The Portland flight to Maui departs as HA39 following a RON at PDX. It certainly will be nice to see two Hawaiian birds on the ground again overnighting at PDX!

So is it confirmed for sure that HA is shifting from the 330 to the 321NEO at the end of the year?

Yes, HA will replace the A332 with the A321neo from November 4, 2018: https://www.google.com/flights/#search; ... 5;s=0;so=t

With that being said though, that date is still very far away from now, so there's still a slight chance HA could change this back to the A332 in time...

Anybody know why HA is flying tonight (20JAN) PAE-PDX-PAE as flights 8002 and 9001?
FlightAware says they flew it yesterday with an A330. They don't have it listed for tonight.
PDX's website has these flights listed on their arrival/departure page for tonight. Why would
they fly an A330 from/to Boeing/PAE? Their flights from HNL and OGG tonight are both
arriving early so it has nothing to do with them.

Heavy MX done by ATS? That's my only guess as to why they're up there. 390HA was up there for 10 days before leaving. 393HA just went up. They swapped last night so 390 can do flight 25 this morning and 393 go up to PAE.

Ok, thanks! Seemed weird that an Airbus was going to Boeing, but I don't know how the MX work is performed.
I don't think flights like that need to be listed on the airport screens. Nobody would understand why HA is flying
to/from Everett like it says. I was there and saw the screens today. Also says it arrives at E7. At last check, don't
we have just E1-5? And E5 may be in-op now with the concourse expansion??

Alaska has added a 4th daily PDX-SNA. Not sure if this is ahead of schedule or was already mentioned. (April- was announced in previous OAG updates thread.)

Cathay Pacific’s (Atlas) 747-800 “diverting” again to PDX today, now scheduled to bypass ANC and fly direct to HKG. Cathay also is now code-sharing with Alaska on LAX-PDX and SFO-PDX on several flights.

The 748 has bypassed ANC a few times already. Not too sure as to why that is, though...

Don’t forget DL flies PDX-HNL 1x daily for 2 weeks around Christmas, and then every Saturday from February to end of March. I wouldn’t be surprised to see DL eventually go year round with this route.

...Especially if Hawaiian sticks with switching HNL to the A321. Three airlines to HNL would have advantages but the wide body is a nice perk.

In regards to the potential Florida routes from PDX, I would like to see AS take on PDX-FLL and PDX-TPA, while AA does PDX-MIA. SEA already has two daily flights to Miami...

While I think flights to FLL and MIA are definitely a good add- I would argue that most people in the PDX catchment area would rather vacation in Hawaii than Florida. I personally like Florida, but it's definitely not considered as nice a destination as Hawaii by many people around here (aside from the Theme Parks)

I agree that PDX to S. Florida is a matter of when & not if. You would not need to argue your point, it's quite factual that Northwesterners vacation in Hawaii more often than Florida, despite equal travel times. Disney excluded, it's not even a horse race.

I & every one I know here, do agree that Hawaii is a nicer place to hit the tropics for two weeks, my folks own a condo there, so do most of their friends & the large groups we'd go with the first two weeks of August, every year from 1979 onwards feel the same way today.

I also know 3 different folks that live here & have condos in Palm Beach or Ft Lauderdale, they go back & forth twice a year, but Hawaii is the king of vacations from Oregon still.

It works both ways. People in South Florida vacation in/travel to the West too. Nonstops boost traffic, especially on long routes. Looking at the numbers again I see only one new route to Florida: either MIA/AA or FLL/B6. Both have lots of connections to the Caribbean. The port should even consider a subsidy. I don’t see TPA anytime soon.

I think the only other additions we’ll see this year are BNA and maybe some seasonals going year round (IAD, BWI, PHL, YYZ).

American seems to be the latest airline to be cutting back at PDX. Down to only one daily to both ORD and CLT hubs. Doesn’t increase in summer. I’d rule out any chance for AA to MIA.
United apparently is adding to ORD and IAH from PDX.
Southwest adds a 3rd flight (x1) to MDW in summer.
Alaska adds a 2nd daily to DAL in summer.

Still no final 2017 #s from PDX.

I wonder if the reason why PDX is losing all of this air service is that the airport is becoming too expensive to operate from especially with the current billion dollar construction projects going on........

American Airlines regularly cuts down to one ORD for the "midwinter slump" and the double CLT was a recent add over the holidays. American Airlines doesn't have their summer schedule set yet.

Not sure about that.

PDX is in a bit of a catch-22 because of its dependence on Alaska. Other airlines are hesitant to start new routes from Portland because of Alaska. Some even cut back. As Alaska is shifting resources to beef up or launch routes from other cities—SJC, SAN, SFO, PAE etc.—that probably means even less for PDX at least in the short term. Alaska has already cut back on routes that were supposed to be year round—DTW, MCI, STL.

Will Alaska’s flights from PAE be new allocations of planes or will they just be shifting the planes from existing SEA flights to PAE? The former would be a particularly bad sign for PDX this year.

19 million.That’s impressive, considering the headwinds blowing from many airlines against PDX.

Leaked info? Sounds right if you extrapolate from November 2017 numbers for December. PDX usually releases monthly info earlier in the month than this.

Looks like the POP plans to demolish several buildings for the future North Ramp RON expansion adjacent to the extended CC-E...Building 7615,7605,7705,7645 and 7527 are all slated for demolition...I'm surprised that they're not demolishing the Hanger building 7505.....Also, I notice that there's a planned PDX maintenance facility development costing $110,780,000...I wonder if this has something to do with United plans to build a maintenance hanger here.........

2017 numbers from EUG: https://www.eugene-or.gov/DocumentCenter/View/38018

It's striking how DL's traffic has literally doubled while AS has declined around 12% for the year (and ceded the #1 spot to UA).

Given the difference in size it's almost impossible to compare EUG to PDX... I suspect EUG is in a sort of "donut hole" where it's still too small for AS/QX to justify upgauging service, but just barely large enough for other carriers (particularly UA) to do so.

Here's my source direct from the POP Vince Granato, Chief Operating Officer........It's stated right at the top of page 1.........

Thanks for that lh'.

BTW, I don't know if it's just me but the airport stats page at the POP website sure seems disorganized; year-end numbers and specific months don't seem to be in any order, very difficult-- or impossible -- to track down... Is there a trick to it?

Also, I notice that Mr. Granato did not include any int'l pax numbers for 2017. I'll be curious to see those when they are posted.

Stats page was OK until a few days ago.

It appears that PDX is still the biggest airport (19 million pax) and Portland the largest metro area (No. 17 CSA) without a nonstop to South Florida. To what other “large hub airports” is Portland the largest unserved destination?

Delta has been more reliable than Alaska / Horizon Air.
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of. Same with OAK & SJC when it comes to SFO.

And UA has been adding to non-Portland, Oregon cities. UA has added MFR & RDM to LAX, UA has daily n/s Denver service from 4 cities in Oregon, five from San Francisco with OTH. UA is bringing the E-175's to all of their Oregon destinations x OTH. UA has really stepped up their game, I'd expect they are the third largest carrier serving Oregon now, where at one point they were the first.

Interesting.........../www.bizjournals.com/portland/news/2018/01/29/alaska-airlines-paine-field-flyers-portland.html

Alaska Airlines passengers flying from Paine Field in Everett, Wash., when service begins this fall can connect to more U.S. destinations through Portland, Alaska Air Group CEO Brad Tilden said Thursday.

"In terms of connectivity (from Paine), we're thinking Portland more than anywhere else," Tilden said during a conference call after Alaska released its latest financial results.

Alaska flies to 58 destinations from Portland every day, Alaska spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said.

Seattle traffic has become so frustrating that Alaska's passengers are seeking alternatives as they struggle to get to and from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which ranks among the fastest-growing airports in the nation.

You mean they aren’t going to helicopter connecting passengers to King SEA? That’s gonna cut into their exalted traffic numbers.

Does UA still fly OTH-DEN? I thought that was a very interesting route.

Nope. Looks like just 1x day to SFO.

Edit: I was wrong. This summer only it will be 2x week (Sun/Wed) on an E75. Very interesting indeed.

Icelandair resumes 15-16 March. Condor 1 May. Both 2x/week to start. FI goes 3x in April, increasing to 6x in mid June. Condor 4x in late June.

If so, it will probably be from international growth. The AM PDX-MEX daily is likely drawing Central and South America connecting traffic that would have gone to LAX, IAH or double-connecting to MIA (with no AA nonstop). Norwegian to Paris or DL alternating days with LHR? Increased frequency to FRA? Switching Tokyo to JL and converting HKG/CX to passenger/cargo combo?

If airlines don’t start adding instead of cutting like they did in 2017, those numbers won’t be impressive. A 19 million passenger airport should get better attention than PDX does. AA has trimmed ORD, CLT. We’re way underserved by ULCCs too. Seasonals to IAD/UA, BWI/WN and YYZ/AC need to go year round. FLL/B6 and BNA/WN should be targeted. Alaska might not be adding much, just restoring what got trimmed (Horizon) in 2017.

Time for a few incentives?

I was still under the impression that DEN-OTH had been chopped for good at end of last season due to dropping numbers of visitors to Bandon Dunes. So, my apologies in my previous quotes I omitted OTH-DEN on the E-175. My point is even further made however, UA is making great strides in serving Oregon with their adds to SFO & LAX.

Condor operates until 27 October. Delta resumes A333 to AMS on 24 March.

In 2017 international was only 6.9% of total passenger traffic at PDX, even with an 11% annual increase. A lot of room for nonstop growth there.

Wow!...great numbers for pdx! Wonderful growth! Whoever thought that a city like Portland would see numbers like this? Great to see delta and Alaska continue to grow. Nonstop destinations seem to increase every year. With Seattle continuing to grow, and Seattle being such an easy connection that it makes getting almost anywhere in the world in 1 stop so much easier. Lets hope for continued growth in the pacific northwest for SeaTac and pdx.

Doing price/sked searches for PDX-WAS some strange Sun Country flights show up on Skyscanner: a nonstop from SEA-DCA and a nonstop from PDX-STL. Errors?

Played around with it and for STL at least the Sun Country times match the Southwest times, the flight numbers even match except for the WN and SY parts. Something must be pulling it wrong unless there is some codeshare no ones knows about.. haha
