Spirit announces RDU service to seven destinations

Mon Jan 14, 2019 11:12 pm

INTL I would assume...BA? Condor?

Per their Twitter:

Psst. We’re making a BIG air service announcement tomorrow at 10 a.m. Now accepting your guesses in GIF format.

We’ll livestream tomorrow’s air service announcement via Facebook Live. You’re following us there, right?

Let's just hope it's not even more Frontier shenanigans.

This was the first thing I thought of when I saw they were having an announcement.

In all seriousness though, I'm guessing an announcement from Spirit.

Have they lived stream a domestic announcement before? Have they done it for F9? Only reason I assumed it would be INTL.

Has to be EK on a 380 to DXB right? that's BIG... but alas yes, probably F9..

I've heard a United Club was coming, according to some other posts on this forum. I'm guessing this is the announcement for that.

Wild card, but maybe RDU has secured a flight to China quicker than previously thought.

Frontier just announced new RDU routes a week ago.... why have another announcement when you can just announce it all at once? I’m confident it’s not Frontier.

I posted this in the other thread, but it's likely too late in the season for European Announcements, unless it starts outside of summer.

It is more than likely NK, or service from AS/G4/B6/SY, those are the carriers to expect considering they tend to have midweek announcements. I didn't include F9 since they had an announcement last week.

DL has its investor call tomorrow, so they won't have announcements tomorrow, and UA/AA announce new routes on Fridays and sometimes Thursdays

Maybe more UA service because of the new club, but I doubt it

My guesses are either Spirit to MCO and LAS, or AS to SAN, and PDX being a long-shot.

If it's FRA, it would probably be flown by Lufthansa, not United.

Well, I'd love for it to be FI, especially given that they've previously stated they'd like to grow by up to 35% this year and haven't announced any new routes yet. Also, it'd be a perfect route for the MAX. However, given their restructuring on the North American part of their network I unfortunately find it unlikely. Fingers crossed though!

I highly doubt it's European service because

A. As Midwestindy alluded to, this isn't the time of year when new TATL service is announced

B. With the possible exception of DL to AMS, RDU isn't big enough for additional European service yet

Tomorrow's announcement might possibly be G4 announcing new routes out of RDU since G4 already serves both RDU and TUL.

Another possibility is AS announcing SEA-TUL nonstop service along with nonstop service to PDX, LAX, and/or SAN out of RDU.

Was just about to say that SEA-TUL is likely that route announcement. I can't find the website link right now, but I remember that sometime in 2018, TUL was given $750,000 in incentive money to persuade AS to start SEA-TUL nonstop. If the TUL and RDU announcements are somehow coordinated, then I think this will be AS SAN-RDU and AS SEA-TUL.

As much as I'd like to see PDX-RDU, I just don't see it happening yet.

More than likely something like daily SAN or PDX on a legit airline. Outside chance Mexico City? Longshot, but not out of the realm of possibility would be another TATL from a Star Alliance member. The proposed lounge at RDU is a head scratcher for me.

RDU wouldn't be the worst choice for a United hub in the southeast. Delta's handful of rj routes wouldn't be any obstacle.

I think having a big livestreamed announcement limits it somewhat. I can't imagine that for an AS PDX or SAN route. My guesses would be
LH to FRA
Significant DL expansion, possibly including MEX. I could see them trying to push AA off LHR before AMS
Entrance of NK with several routes
G4 major expansion/small base
Something to Asia

F9 doesn't usually do press events, unless it is something like a crew base, so maybe that's a possibility.

If it's being livestreamed, I would have to say it's international.

In that case, my guesses are as follows:
LH to FRA
DL or KL to AMS
AM to MEX

My guess would be something International. When they announced BA launching LHR-PIT, that announcement was livestreamed. Then again, don't they launch transatlantic flights in the fall?

In terms of clue(s), I think it's the responses in GIF form...how many cities are there that are in GIF form? And if there are cities they are probably decent sized metro(s)/hubs.

I don't think a flight to China will happen any time soon. As far as the UA club I've been noticing UA has been attracting more premium passengers in RDU that are connecting to our Asia flights out of SFO. One destination in particular that see's premium passengers almost daily from RDU is SIN. I'm not sure if UA has secured a corporate contract with a company or companies based in the Raleigh/Durham and/or surrounding areas but we are seeing premium passengers connect to our SIN flights that are starting or ending their journey at RDU. I think this is the reason why UA is now planning to open a United Club at this airport because we need a place for these premium passengers to relax prior to their flight.

As far as the big announcement I don't think it has anything to do with UA. If it is a new international destination it will be to Europe and the only domestic airline I see adding a international destination from RDU would be DL to AMS, a European carrier would be LH to FRA or KL to AMS.

Probably uploading a bunch of new routes and at least 1 new city.

I'm doubtful about an AS announcement. They almost always announce their new routes on Wednesdays or Thursday, usually early in the morning Pacific time.

Therefore, my guess would be Spirit (and I'd fall off my chair if they announce a route to SAN. But when I got off the floor, I'd be quite happy!)

The passengers connecting for SIN are probably Lenovo-related as they have a sizeable presence in Singapore along with their Raleigh/Durham and Beijing main campuses, and opening a United Club at RDU to cater them and the other corporate passengers flying UA makes sense. I do also agree that it is too soon to have an announcement for China service, but I threw that scenario in as a wildcard because that is among the top priority list of destinations that the RDU Airport Authority wants to secure in the next 5-10 years.

I know of a couple of companies based in the Greensboro area that travel to SIN and drive to RDU to shorten travel time, the same way they’ll drove to CLT to catch nonstops to Europe.

Is it a coincidence TUL is also branding it as “BIG” on their Twitter?

NK into RDU seems obvious especially after the F9 adds - TUL not so much...

My thinking was, you don't usually find many 'GIF's' of cities or destinations. If they are asking you to reply as GIF to guess, that doesn't make sense to just reply with a SpongeBob GIF or any other non city/airline related GIF. You GIF London, Paris you find a lot of GIF's....you look for the same for other cities, much harder to find.

Or I'm looking too much into the GIF thing but an odd request to reply as a guess.

WN to HNL, you heard it here first.
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.

The real thirsty posters here know what time AS.com releases it’s dailies. The new posts come about 5 minutes later.

I can only hope you are correct about NK, I think the phrase “big announcement” is used far too freely with these things. Livestream is just an online connection & not really that big of a deal is it?

AS has just two flights a day at RDU currently & I was going use some employee passes to go there, but the loads are tight to/from SEA. And TUL is certainly on the AS radar with their E-175’s.
