Hey Everyone, As many of you know I have been compiling lists of Oregon Air Service, I've posted it here before. What I have realized is that I have been unable to uncover any data on Advantage Air, from what I have heard, they were based at PDX & flew a small fleet of Metroliners. I am looking for their IATA code & of course, routes known to have been flown. I've heard MFR & EUG so far.

If anyone here has solid info on any of their operations, please let me know, I have been updating it & adding all the new routes SY has started over the past 2 years, incl MCO & knew I needed to research Advantage, thanks as always.

Enough with the dooms day already. This is nearly a year away and things will be undoubtedly adjusted up or down to match the demand. Hell, the economy could crash in a couple of months and everything will be cut significantly. Just roll with the punches. It is what it is. It's not airlines "hating" Portland, it's airlines being efficient trying to make the most money and if a route isn't performing, then they'll cut it or reduce it.

I did a quick check on a Friday in June and a Friday in April; both show four AS* flights. For some time, AS/QX have run fewer flights on Saturdays and sometimes on Tuesdays, so it's clearly a response to travel demands.

Edit: forgot to say I was checking on SMF-PDX.

I’m happy to say that beginning in December my new home airport will be PVR. I don’t care who flies there, when, how and why. Although I’ll be living in Puerto Vallarta, I’ll still be advocating for PDX and for improved air service for everyone here.

PDX-ANC has been 2X daily in non-summer for years now. April 2020 schedule in May 2019 means precisely squat.

Correct, these are place holders, AAG has been refining their schedules up until 6 months prior.

Same here! Wouldn't have made it from PSU to PDX on MAX in time and couldn't miss class today. First A350 for PDX too!

A300: FedEx
A310: Air Transat
A318: ?
A319: United, Alaska, Delta, America West, US Airways, Virgin America, Frontier, Spirit, etc.
A320: Mostly same list
A321: Frontier, Alaska, American

Great list! I believe Lufthansa operated flights on the A330 when it served PDX. Also, I believe Hawaiian operates the A321 to/from Honolulu.

Looks like DAL166 diverted last Thursday also.... https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL166

Lufthansa had used the A343 and A346 in the past. Hawaiian also uses their A332 on their HNL flight! :)

I definitely remember the COS service, but not sure if it was an A318 - RWA380 might know better or have a schedule. Here, however, is an old article that mentions PDX-COS having been cut: https://www.denverpost.com/2013/02/15/f ... o-springs/

I flew on a Frontier A318 in 2005 PDX-DEN. Not sure if it was a sub or scheduled though.

I definitely flew a Frontier A318 back in 2007 from DEN-PDX. It was N805FR (Ollie the owl), which was actually the 2nd A318 prototype.
    Ironically, I don't work for OO anymore, and I'm not in SLC anymore. PDX based, aviation enthusiast, non-aviation worker.

Attn: PDX spotters! DL 166 NRT-SEA (A359) is being diverted to PDX again today...Friday May 31st. As of 8:50 am as I type this, it's on descent passing by Mt. St. Helens.

Other flights are landing in SEA right now, why the diversion???

Landing 28R...great view from Marine Drive if anyone is there right now, and will probably take off from the same runway for the flight up to SEA.

Delta.com shows it's parked at D15 now, and is scheduled to leave PDX about 10am.

What's going on? 3rd A359 diversion to PDX in the last week or so? What I don't understand is that as I was watching FR24, other flights were landing and departing SEA this morning.

Great article, thanks for sharing! I can remember when the original E concourse expansion for UA opened in May 1992. The E concourse still looks and feels nice, I passing through each time.

Makes sense for the upcoming projects PDX has, as it will meet 95% of the flying public's needs there. Hopefully within 10 years, as international growth continues, PDX will (at a minimum) renovate the D concourse, especially the international gates. I'm still wondering what that security area is for by D-11 on the concourse level...that isn't where pax on international arrivals pass through. Seems like wasted space!

I believe the security check point at D9-D11 is for international arriving passengers who are connecting to another flight. O&D passengers get the bus ride.

Correct. Although often times, when there are just a few passengers connecting, TSA won't bother opening that checkpoint and passengers have to go through security at the main terminal.

It did operate one of the STL-PDX flights in the summer or other peak seasons, IIRC it ran up to ANC for one season as a STL-PDX-ANC routing, a close friend worked for TW at PDX & he would often operate the jetway & I remember him commenting on learning on the 757 one evening, it was not but one season that it went to ANC. Other years it was a handful of M80's that had extra rafts etc ... TW had a lucritive mail contract I was told by my friend.

Thanks for the explanation! Makes sense. But hopefully with a future renovation of that end of D concourse, that security checkpoint can be moved, and it can be made into additional gate space. Every time I walk by it, I think "what a waste of space"!

DL really needs a newer, bigger SkyMiles lounge at PDX...another renovation idea!

Maybe us Oregon Aviation Thread followers should be put in charge of the next design phase of improvements at PDX!

Starting this week Southwest has eliminated PDX-MDW for the summer. However, it’s interesting that they continue operating to Chicago Midway from SEA, OAK, SJC, SMF, SAN, SFO, ONT, BUR, RNO, SLC, PHX, TUS, ABQ and LAS. Snub.

Which brings up the Concourse E expansion. There is no way Southwest needs or would ever use all 12 E gates at PDX. In April they only operated about 74 flights a day. At that rate they’d use each gate for 3 flights in, 3 flights out a day. That’s a lot of down time.

Meanwhile, stats from April show the small and dwindling presence at PDX of Spirit (1 destination: LAS), Frontier (1 destination: DEN) and JetBlue (2 year-round destinations: JFK, LGB; 2 seasonal: BOS, ANC).

Market share April 2019 (April 2018):

Spirit. 1.2%. (1.2%)
Frontier. 0.8%. (1.2%)
JetBlue. 1%. (1.6%)

NK+F9+B6=3% (April 2018: 4%)

Spirit. 1.2%. (1.2%)
Frontier. 0.8%. (1.2%)
JetBlue. 1%. (1.6%)

NK+F9+B6=3% (April 2018: 4%)


In regards to Concourse E, both Southwest and United will be the only tenants utilizing all of E once the extension is completed next summer 2012....Southwest plans to use 6 of the 11.......

[quote="jbpdx"]Starting this week Southwest has eliminated PDX-MDW for the summer. However, it’s interesting that they continue operating to Chicago Midway from SEA, OAK, SJC, SMF, SAN, SFO, ONT, BUR, RNO, SLC, PHX, TUS, ABQ and LAS. Snub.

Which brings up the Concourse E expansion. There is no way Southwest needs or would ever use all 12 E gates at PDX. In April they only operated about 74 flights a day. At that rate they’d use each gate for 3 flights in, 3 flights out a day. That’s a lot of down time.

Really surprising about MDW. I flew it a few times in the past year, and it has always been full or near full. When it operates as a 1:00PM departure, it made for great connections to the east coast and SE destinations. At least they still have STL and MCI. These also serve a lot of connections onward to the east and southeast.

I am surprised to hear they have 74 flights a day. Is this just departures, or arrivals and departures. Just seems like more than I thought.

Thanks,

Is the south runway at PDX closed today?

Everyone sees to be using north one. Making a decent backup.

Once I saw your post, I listened to the Live ATC feed for a few minutes while doing some paperwork. On approach, they are sending everyone to 28R. Sounds like the departures are off 28R as well. Appears 28L is not being used. Someone at PDX may have more information.

It is strange hearing everything go to the right side.

United is moving on out of E, the way I heard it.

United is not moving out of E concourse. I have seen many renderings and like the above noted, Southwest is using the 6 new gates, United will still retain E1 thru 4. All airlines except American, Alaska air group, and Jet Blue will operate out of the North concourses. However with Sun Country expanding, it could be reasonable that they move to the South along side Jet Blue, AA, and Alaska air / Horizon.

The notification I received indicated the south runway closed for routine maintenance Monday through Friday. They were stripping the rubber build up today on the east end. Probably finish that up tomorrow and start on the West end.

WN is temporarily dropping PDX-MDW nonstop service due to the plane shortage arising from the 737 MAX grounding, but I expect WN to resume PDX-MDW nonstop service once the 737 MAX planes are back in service.

Looks like Alaska 1323 SFO-SEA is squawking 7700 and diverting into PDX: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/ASA1323

Edit: Listening to live atc and controller asked for souls and fuel remaining - pilots confirmed strong smell of smoke onboard at altitude. FAs had said that it was present from the exit row to the flightdeck but that the smoke was not visible. Appears to have landed safely at 11:03pm.

Right?!, Thanks for the cool shots & the only Oregon airport that have commercial service I've never had the pleasure of using. I've driven by on Hwy 101 & it looks totally awesome with the river & ocean.

When it's sunny, Coos Bay/North Bend is phenomenal.

Noticed that UA has been flying some mainline 737's and A320's over the past few days between DEN-MFR

Screenshot I took a few days ago... 737-9 inb from DEN and an A320 inb from SFO

This may have been mentioned, my apologies if it's a repeat, DL is adding one mainline r/t between PDX & SEA, I'm not sure when, but I was researching stuff for April next year & saw it.
