Unfortunately, I do not see transatlantic service coming here anytime soon. Thomas Cook, WOW, and a couple other discount airlines seem to be struggling big time and falling into bankruptcy. Norwegian might be next. Those airlines seemed to be the type of airline that BUF would be targeting.

We know legacy carriers like Delta, Americans, United would drop dead before they would have any kind of Transatlantic service out of BNIA.


Maybe Jetblue but that seems like a stretch.


I definitely agree with you though, the way the club was designed, it was built for that type of service.

Is an Aer Lingus A321LR, or Icelandair 737MAX8 really that far of a stretch?

Aer Lingus only flights to major US airports besides hartford. Maybe an outside chance?

Icelandair - I know they had major cutbacks to the US due to the MAX. I wonder what will happened when the MAX comes back But again, they only show Major airports they fly out of.

I think those planes can make a direct flight though.

And this might be one of the dumbest things I will say- I think BUF / NFTA should go after an Asian and Indian air carrier. Go to Niagara falls and see the visitors that come.

Amazon might be opening a distribution center in Upstate NY (near Syracuse or Albany, hasn’t been decided yet). Anyone think this could open up the possibility of new nonstop routes to the region?

According to a new study Syracuse Airport had the second largest decrease in average airfare costs in the country. Average airfare fell 11.1% compared to a year ago. The only other airport with a larger decrease was Long Island MacAthur where average airfare fell 18.2% over the past year. The airport with the largest increase in average airfare over the past year was Chicago-Midway at 6.6%.

Great news for SYR!!

Speaking of SYR I noticed a Metro on the ground at SYR that seems to be operating long flights involving flying back and forth cross northern NY and I can't figure out who really owns it?

It’s probably Wiggins Airways doing cargo runs between SYR and PBG. They usually use an EMB110 but maybe they had to borrow a Metroliner from their parent company Ameriflight.

The Buffalo area has an Amazon distribution center and we did not get any additional nonstops or anything even close. Prime does not fly here either.

If you look at flight aware the path that plane has been flying is a lot of back and forth over a long period of time so there's no way that plane is doing normal cargo flights

Oh, it’s doing new ‘satellite’ imagery for the area then. A lot of Google Maps, Bing Maps, Apple Maps and other private or government mapping programs actually use imagery from planes not satellites.

With this weeks OAG thread, it looks like AA metal is finally returning to ROC. Starting in January 2X A319 on CLT and 1X CR9. Despite the cut to 3X daily from 4X daily, that’s actually still a capacity increase of about 30 seats, and more importantly, it just makes so much more sense.

Amazon just bought 184.5 acres for a distribution center on top of another center they already have here ....... i guess Syracuse and Buffalo will see if they get nonstops out of it or prime cargo.

The Buffalo Sabres crossed the pond to stockholm last night on a A321 NEO. So definitely very doable for BNIA if it ever received transatlantic service.

I’ve heard rumors about DL starting BOS-SYR soon and has also been tossing around the idea of doing SEA to one or more airports upstate.

Not dumb if you’re talking about cargo. However, for passenger service, not a chance with the behemoth that is YYZ just up the road. Not to mention the fact that the overwhelming majority of visitors to the falls do so from the Canadian side.

That would be great, if DL started BOS-SYR then that would be the end of AA regional routes out of BOS. No point in keeping the base for just ROC and MDT

I’d be surprised if they started SEA to any airport in upstate, although with the largest amazon distribution center being built 30mi north of SYR I could see it there more than anywhere else.

Would love to see SLC-upstate NY on the A220, they’ve done SYR-SLC nonstop a couple of times as one-offs

Where did you get the rumors?

The BUF - BOS route yields are brutal for both jetblue and DL. Both keep those routes alive to to feeding their hubs.

AS adding BUF-SEA nonstop service is also a possibility with (a) AS recently adding CMH-SEA and PIT-SEA nonstop service and (b) AS already serving most of the U.S. airports that currently have nonstop service out of SEA.

I noticed last night at SYR that as a result of that DL 752 mess some other DL flights like the MD-90 from ATL were being held on the taxiway (BTW it finally left for LA around 2:30am). Also AA sent an A319 from ORD and E-175 which both overnighted and I was surprised that the 319 was being used out of ORD as I thought those weren't operated out of ORD by AA.

NFTA said their is demand for direct flights to Paris, Dublin, and London!!! Which is awesome news! The NFTA has never mentioned exact cities before. Just generalized saying they were looking into flights to Europe.

Also, they have adjust the plans the construction plans and adding more gates on the east wing? Which side is that?

from VS forever in the Boston thread

ROC - two way fight between Piedmont and B6 here, Piedmont has the upper hand with a 55/45 split in passengers, but both are seeming to co-exist happily here.

B6 BOS-ROC 460 46059 37708 81.9%
PT BOS-ROC 1198 59900 47883 79.9%


Much better load% than BUF-BOS

unfortunately the yield for B6 is about the same on BOS-BUF/ROC. PT is a little bit higher but those 44 seaters have really high costs.

NFTA said their is demand for direct flights to Paris, Dublin, and London!!! Which is awesome news! The NFTA has never mentioned exact cities before. Just generalized saying they were looking into flights to Europe.

Also, they have adjust the plans the construction plans and adding more gates on the east wing? Which side is that?


The East wing is the larger of the two without international gates. If you go to the BNIA website and look at the sustainable master plan dated 2013 (it probably changed since then) it gives illustrations of where they intended to add gates south of the east wing. Odd that they want to add gates at this stage when there are 5 or 6 unused gates now. Time and economic conditions will tell I imagine.

All the gates are technically in use ...... but they dont have an airline that owns it or rents it. They actually have a lot of RON aircraft that park overnight too.

From the OAG thread:

Looks like UA is ending ELM-IAD service


UA has tried three different routes from ELM with no success. I doubt we will see them back there again.

It is good news for ITH as they near the opening of the expanded terminal.

Found this link interesting for BUF / ROC - San Juan and top unreserved routes. Both made the list. B6 would be smart to add a direct seasonal route to ATLEAST BUF based on this information. But as we all know, politicians basically begged B6 for BUF - LA route. The NFTA would have do to the same for San Juan.

How much would a direct BUF-SJU cannibalize B6's BUF-MCO/FLL routes though?

It will take a little from that, but they would also capture a lot of BUF-JFK/EWR/BOS/PHL/CLT/ATL/MIA-SJU. I seriously doubt B6 is winning all of that traffic right now.

ROC is having issues getting its facial-recognition security camera system online. Airport director says he expects it to be ready in the first quarter of 2020.

Interesting article in the Buffalo News today about the efforts of the NFTA to secure trans atlantic service form BUF.

it'll be interesting to see if their efforts pay off.

I am sure the 388,000 is an educated guess ..... that go to Toronto or JFK to fly over to Europe. But overall it definitely seems like they want trans Atlantic service by the time the new updates are completed. But if that amount of people is anywhere close, they could definitely get a flight every couple days to Europe. Probly not daily.

very interesting to see what airline they lure over here. I mean we do have Niagara Falls. That helps.
