Does anyone in MFR know why AA3256/SKW3256 CR7 PHX-MFR today diverted to EUG, after one pass at MFR. I assume due to the forest fire smoke, but it appears it's the only one that diverted. A QX Q400 landed about the time the Eagle would have; straight in with no hold. It's a hot day in PHX that may have increased the take off burn, but would that have been enough to create a low fuel situation not allowing a second pass at MFR? No extended taxi at PHX. It was at EUG for more than 1 1/2 hours, so that doesn't look like a quick gas and go.
It is just now landed at MFR.
Worked for WestAir, Apollo Airways, Desert Pacific, Western, AirCal and American Airlines (Retired). Flight Memory: 181 airports, 92 airlines, 78 a/c types, 403 routes, 58 countries (by air), 6 continents. 1,119,414 passenger miles.

Don't have the answer to your question, but MFR looked clear today. I saw a picture taken today that showed blue skies.

Looks like a few airports including LMT, got a bit of Grant money.

A small taxiway on the opposite side of the runway has also been completed.

Apparently the Iberia flight that the team(s) were on came under scrutiny since the men's team was seated in business class while the women's team sat in economy.

FC Barcelona is heading to Portland, most likely for Nike promotional stuff before their men's and women's teams tour the US.

Anyone gonna be around to get a pic of the aircraft...? ;)
It looks like it's leaving back to Madrid at 9:00 PM: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/IBE ... /KPDX/LEMD


As of 1009P, it hasn't left yet. I assume this is an empty plane?

On flightaware, SY8600 shows up as MSP-LAX: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/SCX8600

Any chance that it's a different flight number?

Yes, it's most likely an empty plane since it was just pointed out that the team will be continuing on to LAX, DFW, and then SJC on Atlas Air aircraft before heading back to BCN (assuming with Iberia aircraft on the flight back to BCN).

Wonder what they are going to charter around the states. Anyone know how long they are staying in Portland?


According to a schedule from the team website, they depart thursday evening on Atlas Air flight 8516.

https://www.fcbarcelona.com/club/news/2 ... y-calendar

Thursday, July 26; 5:30pm -- PDX-LAX 5Y8516
Sunday, July 29; 3:00pm -- LAX-Dallas 5Y8516 (Not sure if DFW or DAL)
Wednesday, August 1; 11:00am -- Dallas-SJC 5Y7762
Saturday, August 4: 10:00pm -- SJC-BCN (No flight given)

Thanks for that link. The team will most likely end up flying to DFW since Atlas primarily uses widebody aircraft, which I'm pretty sure DAL can't support.

Cool! Wish I could've seen it. Didn't know anything about it. Counting this flight and DE to FRA, PDX has 25 redeye departures
tonight! Compare this to what we have in the winter. What a difference!! Hey, someone goofed:

Was honestly surprised how well that shot came out. Missed it coming in due me being down in Vegas for Red Flag 18-3, But if the rumor is true about the atlas charter I will be able to get that most likely.

It looks like they've be flying around on Atlas Air. The club actually has a very detailed schedule up online, including the hotels they are staying at. Nice to see them open to meeting fans etc.

https://www.fcbarcelona.com/club/news/2 ... y-calendar

There are also some videos put out by the club, including this one that showing the landing at PDX. They boarded buses directly instead of going through the terminal, which was expected:

Well oddly enough the BA service seems to be in conjunction with the service that DL already operates from PIT-LHR.

Thought DL did PIT-CDG, not LHR? Also, sounds like there was a $1.5M incentive package annually.


Yeah, DL does PIT-CDG. And I read that about incentives also. Not uncommon.

According to planespotters.net, they have 4 pax 744s, the rest freighters (and 767s) spread among themselves and other carriers. Not sure why N332SG is gold/white.

Interesting mention in the Raleigh Durham News & Observer. Apparently one of RDU's main goals continues to be a n/s flight to PDX. This question was posed to Joe Esposito, Delta Air Lines Senior VP for Network Planning at a meeting of 250 business people sponsored by the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.

"Will Delta offer a nonstop flight to Portland, Oregon?"
"Esposito said Delta has been beefing up its western network in recent years and described Portland as an IMPORTANT DESTINATION. But he said the airline will likely first add additional daily nonstop flights to its hub in Salt Lake City and to Seattle, which offers connections to several cities in Asia".

http://www.newsobserver.com/news/busine ... 37225.html

At some point either Alaska or Delta will add this flight...simply a matter of time.

Saw this as well. Most likely AS would start it. I don't really see any big reason for DL to run it, as the east/southeast is pretty covered on DL via ATL, DTW, MSP and JFK, and there aren't any RDU/Europe connections that you couldn't find anywhere else in their system. TPA would also probably be first/only on AS. Nashville would be a toss-up on first service, between AS and Southwest. Those 3 cities seem to be the biggest ones interested in starting PDX service.

Interesting mention in the Raleigh Durham News & Observer. Apparently one of RDU's main goals continues to be a n/s flight to PDX. This question was posed to Joe Esposito, Delta Air Lines Senior VP for Network Planning at a meeting of 250 business people sponsored by the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce.

"Will Delta offer a nonstop flight to Portland, Oregon?"
"Esposito said Delta has been beefing up its western network in recent years and described Portland as an IMPORTANT DESTINATION. But he said the airline will likely first add additional daily nonstop flights to its hub in Salt Lake City and to Seattle, which offers connections to several cities in Asia".

At some point either Alaska or Delta will add this flight...simply a matter of time.


If Portland is an IMPORTANT DESTINATION, how about making LHR year round and adding more destinations. Make an announcement or it’s just words.

Actually Delta is fairly responsive to their customer feedback, perhaps you should provide yours. I was just sharing an interesting article.

“Because almost any idiot can make money in the summer to Europe, but it really takes a partnership and support to make it work on a year-around basis. And the business community brings us that.”

Well that's quite the statement there... :lol:

I think this is a polite way of saying that RDU-PDX is clearly not on their priority list. As pdxav8r said, AS will likely start the route first; if DL wants to add more flights to/from RDU and SEA/SLC before PDX, then the chances of DL starting RDU-PDX anytime soon is very slim, at best.

TBH, I think the statement about PDX being an "important city" is just talk.

In other news; CVG is looking to restore nonstop service to PDX within the near future: https://soundcloud.com/the-river-city-n ... -nky-focus

It's a podcast, timestamp where PDX is mentioned is around 3:30.

Thanks for sharing! It's great to hear the CVG Airport CEO come out and expressly state that they are actively pursuing a non-stop flight to PDX. I travel to CVG a couple times a year and it's remarkable the number of business professionals and various travelers that I meet originating at PDX who are also traveling to CVG. There is a demand and it would be nice to have that midwest link back again.

DL flies to three overseas destinations from PDX. AA and UA each fly to zero. Name one other non-hub or focus city in DL’s network that has that.

I’d say DL considers PDX important.

With EUG and MFR growing in passenger numbers, what are the odds we see n/s service to destinations like ORD on UA or MSP on DL...even seasonally? Surely an E175 or even a CR9 could make those routings work. Idaho Falls gets seasonal MSP service on the CR9.

Right...? I mean, PSC gets 2x daily to MSP for crying out loud...

I was actually thinking EUG/MFR/RDM to DFW on AA would be more likely.

I would assume ORD or I guess even IAH on UA simply because they seem to be the star of those airports, but Delta could surely make it work.
