I actually think DL cutting SEA-HKG makes CX to Pdx less likely

Another sign of AS so-called right-sizing of its PDX focus city...PDX-Eug flights down this fall/winter to only two flights a day.......

It's an easy drive. Wouldn't be much demand.
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.

My understanding is that PDX is a hub for Alaska Airlines...not a focus city. I believe Seattle is the main hub with Anchorage, pdx, and lax being smaller hubs, and San Diego being considered a focus city.

Your optimism is inspiring, if not naive.


I could see someone adding another flight from PDX to Asia. Maybe DL or KE doing PDX-ICN or HU giving it a whirl.

So thought I would pipe in on the extra CX flights. On Sundays CX094/095 scheduled at 2300 from JFK. On Mondays another flight was added CX098/099 at 2150 this one is doing a JFK-ORD-PDX hop. Last one is CX3284/3295 on Wednesdays at 0055 and this one is doing the JFK-PDX hop. As someone else pointed out they added these flights till about August/early September for cherries to be sent out overseas. Last year the average amount was 50t-60t each flight of cherries. Here are a few I took last year https://imgur.com/a/YFRboof

Here's the thing. PDX is not an alliance hub, let alone a hub for any airline at all for that matter (yes, even including Alaska no matter what others say on here). SEA is. Albeit, a hub for SkyTeam, which Cathay Pacific is not apart of. I think in order for Cathay to even slightly consider a PDX pax route, someone within the Oneworld alliance, the only obvious canaanite, American Airlines, would have to significantly up their operations at PDX--which is not going to ever happen since American already treats PDX like complete dog shit anyhow, considering that they won't even start PDX-JFK, let alone make PDX-PHL year-round for crying out loud.

The theory of "since an airline has cargo ops at a given airport, increases the chances of pax flights coming to the airport on that airline" is simply illogical. With that kind of mentality, it can be argued that Qatar Airways should serve PIT, and Ethiad should serve TUS.

Trust me, I would LOVE for Cathay to come to PDX with a pax flight. That would be amazing, but the logistics just don't add up here. And I would also have a very hard time believing that Hong Kong would come to PDX before Beijing and/or Shanghai. In fact, I think Osaka would be a more economically viable route to/from PDX than Hong Kong would.

If anything, Delta leaving the SEA-HKG market only makes it a lot more likely for Cathay to add a pax flight to SEA instead of PDX, because they know that there is at least some sort of viable SEA-HKG market since Delta had supposedly made the route successful at one point in time.

Believe me, I'm not trying to be a naysayer, and really I do think that Cathay should at least consider looking into the possibility of investing in PDX.

Hey jbpdx frankly I tend to agree with you! A number of the "opinions" that are highlighted on this forum are just that, opinions...I come from an aviation background. I spent a number of years in the airline industry as a Station Manager, Operations Manager, Trainer and also have over 400 hours of flight time as well as a background in aviation/airline security. I wouldn't get too concerned with some of the comments that others make...you certainly have your observations and every right to publish those as well!

I think it's funny that DL is dumping SEA-HKG. Everybody on that thread is so shocked! Oh good grief...what did they expect?
There are only so many people that fly and YVR, SFO, and LAX connections are adequate from the west coast. If they begin to
cut any more flights then I'd assume their newest hub may be failing. They say they're committed to the Pacific Northwest. Hmmmm.
I've heard that before. All of us PDXers have!!

WTG MFR! These are the most departures yet for this small regional airport. UA has smartly invested in up-gauging their DEN & SFO routes & AA connected LAX. I think AS has lost more than it can recapture at MFR & those that use MFR are likely pretty grateful for the options thus far.

Delta is using the Boeing 757 on PDX-LAX today (on DL69/68). I've seen the 757 deployed on a last minute basis on LAX-PDX-LAX routing quite often. I wonder why that is...

Looks like DL interchanges the 321 and 757 on MSP flights, makes sense. Nice to see the 321 on SLC flights now. I love DL's aircraft diversity at PDX. Far and away more aircraft options than any other carrier.

Delta did use the 777-200LR on 2 separate round trip NRT-PDX-NRT flights about a year ago. And the Boeing 767-400 was also used on that route not terribly long ago. Just goes to show how well that route is performing, which may in turn, help to bring a DL/KE joint-venture PDX-ICN flight in the future.

Also, once in a blur moon, I've seen the Airbus A330 and Boeing 767-400 on PDX-ATL as well.

Was this a few weeks ago? I saw that HA25 on the 10th left at about 130am. 17.5 hour delay. The flight on the 11th left around 5pm. A 9 hour delay.
    Ironically, I don't work for OO anymore, and I'm not in SLC anymore. PDX based, aviation enthusiast, non-aviation worker.

Looks like HA26 HNL-PDX on-time performance has fallen through the floor since they switched to A321:

On-time Performance Rating
0.0 of 5
Very Poor
Percentage On-Time 50%
This flight has an on-time performance of 50%. Statistically, when taking into consideration sample size, standard deviation, and mean, this flight is on-time more often than 0% of other flights.

I’ll be taking Alaska next time.

Delta - SLC
United - DEN, LAX(?), SFO


Love your enthusiasm, but not your vision of reality. I would love to see commercial service return to SLE. But the blowhards in the attached article aren’t grounded. First off, fares from SLE will always end up much higher than from PDX. Most Salem travelers will commute to PDX via car or the shuttle to save what always is a big difference in airfare. Salem isn’t some wealthy community, and most willing to pay the higher fares work in government. That situation hasn’t kept service the many times attempted once the free money went away. Salem is growing, but it isn’t ‘booming’ by any stretch. I would have envisioned 10 years ago, UA doing SLE to SEA and/or SFO with EMB-120’s. If they would have made money, they would have flown it. And do you really believe airlines want to take passengers away from PDX, and pay to open a new, highly marginal station? It is just too close to PDX. And please, don’t try to compare SLE to PAE. Not even close to the same situation. Especially don’t see any movement to SLE as fuel prices continue to rise.



I'd love to see it too, but I doubt the viability too. When there has been service, I've looked and it is always too much. I've got maybe $200 of wiggle room on the ticket itself plus parking & mileage for another $100-$200 per trip. The delta between PDX and SLE is always much more than that.

I've had more luck using EUG. For me, the distance to EUG is farther but the time is less due to traffic, and easier parking to boarding. Flyting domestic it works well. I haven't done it in a while though because my job has shifted and I'm pretty much an international traveler nowadays.

PDX May numbers likely released tomorrow.

Wonder if we’ll pick up AA’s discontinued SLC-MIA nonstop?

Delta is adding a focus city at AUS, and the first non-hub routes from there are rumored to be PDX (along with SJC, SAN and LAS). Would love to see some competition against AS on PDX-AUS, and F9's measly service hardly counts as competition.

DL hasn't announced AUS as a focus city yet. That is also a rumor, until they do.

BTW, on the cancelled MCO-PDX flight and subsequent reliever flight, wasn't it Sun Country that stranded passengers a month or so ago somewhere else, and didn't fly a reliever in?

Yes, Sun Country stranded passengers from Mazatlán after a blizzard canceled lots of flights at MSP, and those passengers had to find their own way to MSP. However, this MCO flight that was canceled was on Alaska.

I guess the MCO-PDX flight was canceled due to the incoming flight from SEA being diverted to JAX (presumably due to weather): https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ASA ... /KSEA/KJAX

Then later on that night, the same plane flew from JAX to MCO to pick up the stranded passengers and fly them to PDX the following morning: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ASA ... /KJAX/KMCO
