Looks like Austrian will be delaying their start of service to June 2nd. Not surprised.

"All mentioned destinations remain accessible via other Lufthansa Group hubs, such as Frankfurt. Affected passengers will be rebooked accordingly. The planned first flight to Boston will be postponed from 29 March to 2 June. There will be no flights to Tel Aviv until 24 April."

Terminal A opened about 15 years ago is starting to look a little drab... :duck: maybe some new seats and carpet?

i assume you mean the main Terminal and not the Satellite as that's had work done to it in the last few months at least on the A18-A22 side once WN left?

If so, I would agree with you, could definitely use a freshen up.

Well folks, given the uncertainty surrounding great portions of my life and involvement with the aviation industry, I think it's the time to sign off for a little while. I'll still follow along and keep up to date, but beyond that...we'll see.

Cheers for the good times, all! See you on the other side

Don’t be a stranger, hopefully 30 days will kick this and we can get back to normal service.

I will post the September international numbers after they are released tomorrow. After that out of respect i will take a break too, you guys are awesome and thanks for making this corner of a.net a great place to live

FGITD, I hope everything turns out ok for you.

Good luck to everyone throughout this epidemic. I enjoy being a part of this community and hope that everything will be back to normal soon.
Also, the coming year will be the first true test of what airlines are preparing to stick it out in BOS for the long-run and which will leave, especially Delta.
Hopefully, most decide that once everything is back to normal they want to continue service to Boston, I have been enjoying the wide selection of flights.

So after some clarifications, it appears BOS Europe sector will be left with the following for the rest of March and early April

British Airways - LHR
Virgin Atlantic - LHR
Delta - DUB, LHR
Norwegian (if they survive) - LGW
Aer Lingus - DUB and SNN
Azores & maybe TAP to the Azores..(if this goes longer)

Everyone else is SOL at this point. IB/AZ/LH/KL/TP (LIS)/AF/SK

Also clarified is that cargo may not be at risk, only passengers, so we might still see some other tails, if the cargo lift is worth it for them..

Yes I noticed the new gate desks on that side of the satellite, but wonder how it will look comparatively once other terminal construction is complete.

Well, that asks an interesting question, according to the policy, travel from Europe is banned for Foreign nationals of the Schengen zone countries (the 26), but does that prevent someone from say Germany, flying to Turkey, hopping a TK flight from IST and landing in BOS?

Well, that is a very good point and if that is also stopped, then probably US will have to implement total and complete lock down for international flying. I mean traveling through AC from FRA-YYZ-BOS is also possible IMO as an example. But IMO, all airports would have heightened security measures -imagine India has stopped passengers traveling on visa including OCI (Overseas Citizen of India - as India does not have dual citizenship).

It would be extremely tough on families with kids and for some reason they embarked on the trip and realize they are stuck.

We have to just see how many airlines are going to make domestic cuts as I am sure domestic travel would have also started to tank downwards.

Does anyone know which airport will fall the hardest this year in PAX?

Im thinking EWR, JFK, IAD, SEA, SFO, LAX and ATL will los the most based off what just happened. Then, MIA, BOS, PHL in the next tier.

The ban is not for nationals of the Schengen zone. The ban is on anyone who has been to the Schengen area in the 14 days prior to traveling to the U.S. including UK and Irish residents and citizens. So the connection airport is irrelevant. The U.S. is essentially using the UK and Ireland as quarantine states. Of course there are loopholes. A person can buy a plane ticket to Canada and then buy another plane ticket to the U.S., and self connect. Or just drive across the border. U.S. officials would never know. But I don't think enough people will be doing that.

But about my post above, I was thinking about the huge amount of passengers that airlines like LH/AF/KLM and even BA transport between the US and the rest of the world. Those people now will be traveling via the ME because make no mistake about it, the impact from this ban will last a lot longer than 30 days. No one in their right mind will be buying a ticket via Europe for future travel because of the uncertainty of this ban. And the crazy thing is the Middle East is one of the largest hotbeds for this virus thanks to Iran.

I noticed B6 is cancelling some flights lately.

For example of their 6 daily scheduled flights to EWR from BOS, four (!) of them are cancelled today, two are cancelled tomorrow, and two were cancelled yesterday. I did a dummy booking for one of today's flights and according to the seatmap (not a perfect indicator), the flight looks half full.

Do we think this is due to low loads from the outbreak or is this something else that I'm misunderstanding?

Some flights also cancelled to DCA, PHL, MSP, BWI, and more. FlightAware reporting 20 cancelled B6 flights out of BOS today.

https://flightaware.com/live/cancelled/today/KBOS
Airports: BOS, JAX, JFK, EWR, LGA, CVG, ATL, CLT, DCA, IAD, STT, PVD, ALB, MCO
Aircraft: 733, 735, 73G, 738, 752, 717, A319, A320, MD-88, E190, E175, E145, CRJ-200, CRJ-700, Q400
Airlines: B6, CO, DL, US, NW, WN, DH
...a good start but a long way to go!

I will point out that there is a good likelihood that the UK gets added to the "ban". The president said during his news conference today when questioned, that the task force was reviewing that decision due to an increasing number of cases in the UK.

airbazar - I only wish the part of your post I just quoted (in bold underlined) was true. Weeks before any EU travel ban was put in place I booked a r/t YYZ-BKK on KL because J class was was priced very cheap, and then booked separate AC BOS-YYZ-BOS tickets to position. I flew home from BKK last night as the ban was going into effect and arrived the next day, Saturday, into YYZ on KL from AMS. Sure enough when I checked in at AC and went through US pre-clearance at the Global Entry kiosks it spit out a receipt with a big X on it. My first time ever having that happen in the 5 years I’ve had GE. I’ve never been to China, Italy, Iran,etc., but because I transited AMS (didn’t even enter the country) I was X’d and waited for 4-hours in a sweltering hot room with almost a thousand other US citizens trying to get home before they told everyone nobody is making their flights and AC & UA will rebook you tomorrow and give you a hotel tonight. I’m now at the hotel and rebooked for an afternoon AC YYZ-BOS tomorrow with my plan now being to get to YYZ at 4am and try and be first in line at US Customs and standby for any earlier AC YYZ-BOS flights I can. I have a J ticket and AC makes that easy. But this has been a complete nightmare. The feeling of being trapped and helpless is terrible. I wish all fellow travelers who are also stuck trying to get home the best of luck. Keep your head up and try and stay positive.

I suspect immigration would be going over passport stamps with a fine tooth comb. For instance, I recently moved to Spain so my most recent stamp is from 25FEB in Lisbon. If I were to hop a flight to Canada, my next stamp would be from YYZ. If I then rented a car and drove to the border, the agent would almost certainly ask if I had travelled elsewhere. If I said no and he/she then went through my pages and put together my recent stamp history (and my passport is fairly new so there aren't that many to go through), I'd better have a good story to explain where I was in between otherwise I'd have to answer to why I'm lying to an immigration official. I would NOT recommend anyone to try to use a third country.

If I said no and he/she then went through my pages and put together my recent stamp history (and my passport is fairly new so there aren't that many to go through), I'd better have a good story to explain where I was in between otherwise I'd have to answer to why I'm lying to an immigration official. I would NOT recommend anyone to try to use a third country.

I have to say that I doubt this is happening. If you've seen how long the lines are recently, you could imagine how big of a mess it is. I went through CBP Saturday night and ti was a zoo. I didn't get asked additional questions aside from where i have been. There was no measure of my temperature, no hand sanitizers anywhere. It was just a terrible place to be. I don't want to travel again anytime soon. What's amazing to me is that the south american countries I was just at all have their checks in place much better than here despite much fewer cases.

So eerie. Hard time to be a aviation enthusiast. All we can do is hope for the better times to come.

Need a honest guidance please from folks here in the thread. My in-laws are currently at YVR and had intent to travel on WS from YVR-YYZ-BOS on Wed. The plan was to be in BOS until mid-May and then fly to BOM. There are currently no flights banned from CAD to US but the frenzy around the place wanted to check if it's worth it OR ask them to cancel the trip and they fly back home. Please note they are both healthy and Indian citizens.

Greatly appreciate guidance.

I have a situation where my mother was due to fly in to America from Canada on April 1st. I had her change flight to Wednesday. Any later, I think there could be a more broad flight ban. But if I have to guess, Their flight on Wednesday won't be canceled. I'd be a little concerned about flight to India in mid-May, since not sure how long these border closures will last.

If they're not Canadian, they won't be allowed back by the sounds of it. Very possible there won't be a great way to get to India in May. Best advice would be for them to be where they are most comfortable.

AA just pushed back the start of their BOS-LHR flight from 3/28 to 5/7, they are putting that date in for a lot of their cancelled flights, so me thinks it's a placeholder until they get better news.

That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.

However they did send the oneoff 772 from JFK yesterday.

I am told 250 out of 273 seats were empty.

Thank you and tphuang - I asked them to stay back YVR. Not worth the risk and getting stuck in no-man's land.

I noticed it too! It was good to see a new type with the TAP signs on the side ... :thumbsup:

While I was playing baseball with the kids in the backyard ... EI, TP and BA flew in.
Who are flying from those countries now ... US Citizens/Residents coming back?

I was wondering about that myself but EU countries are still allowing their own citizens to enter the country and New England has a lot of Portuguese citizens. With all that's going on it's very likely that people want to be near their family members. Speaking as someone whose parents are in the bullseye of this virus (my mother would likely die within 2-3 days of catching it), if I got news of her being infected I can tell you I'd be on the next flight to Lisbon regardless of the cost.
