After switching to the 787 from the originally planned 777 for their cargo flights, BA is sending an A351 to PHL today as BA67F. No idea if this is a one off or if it will be an A351 going forward.

Nice looking aircraft, watched it land and then pull into their gate. Think PHLAirport has a picture of it on the IG account

Looks incredible. I wonder if they still plan to use the 350 when commercial service returns for BA

So for those who haven’t heard F9 announced “new” routes for the summer:

New routes from Philadelphia International Airport (PHL): Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR), Palm Beach International Airport (PBI), Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ)

I’m just a little confused as to why they are considered new when they were flown last year. Glad they are starting service overall.

Did some dummy bookings. Seems to be they are all going year-round instead of seasonal. Kinda surprised they didn’t bring Pensacola back in this mix since Florida seems to be quite the hotspot at the moment.

That makes sense. So I guess marketing decided to just market them as new for that reason. I guess Pensacola load factors didn’t meet expectations or could be from Covid. Thanks for letting me know about the routes being year-round

For sure. I recently was messing around with Key West which was Saturday only and AA is close to daily on some months through 2021. I guess since people are hesitant to take their vacations overseas and are staying more focused on sunny Florida.

I'm glad to see JetBlue coming back and we shall see what cards can Southwest can play.
I think it's going to be clear that Frontier will be the second busiest airline at PHL.

This year will re force AA strategy making PHL a Florida gateway.

I agree that Frontier will more than likely be aggressive especially for For Florida and Southern states. Side note for AA I highly doubt we’ll hear any August/September new international routes like they normally do each year. Overall any progress for PHL is good progress.

I can definitely see AA running a larger Florida schedule next summer. Just my two cents but I could definitely see something like this;

8x MCO
7x TPA
5x FLL
8x MIA
1x EYW
3x JAX
4x RSW

A little OT here but do people really know what beach weather is like in FL in the summer time. As a Southern FL it's not good. It rain/thunders constantly and even at that the amount of "sun time" is limited. Not to mention the humidity is off the wall. People coming to MIA/FLL/RSW/JAX/TPA/EYW will find they will be spending most of their time in a hotel room waiting for the rain to end (just to have it start up again as soon as they hit the beach).

People in the Northeast love FL because its an escape from the heat up here. MIA for the clubs, the rest I'm not sure, beach houses? It's cheaper in FL as well.

They just tweeted but BOS and ORD were supposed to have started already. I like the PHX add for fall since WN only flies seasonally although I wouldn’t be surprised for them to jump back in with lessened international travel.

https://news.flyfrontier.com/frontier-a ... frequency/

Also announced increased frequencies on several routes for this winter:

-MCO up to 6x daily
-MIA up to 3x daily
-TPA up to 3x daily
-ATL up to 2x daily

Either going after AA or more likely going after NK and WN. WN has backed off PHL-MCO, FLL, and ATL quite a bit.

MCO at 6x daily is scary. The demand is certainly there but F9 doesn’t typically fly so many frequencies on one route.

Just to piggyback of PHLspecial comment summer time is the best time for family vacations to FL especially with school being out.

I had a gut feeling at some point F9 would add PHX to this route. That route is very expensive with lack of competition.

They could probably do 7-8 flights a day per gate. Perhaps they made an agreement with B6 for partial use of their gate?

F9 could come in and fill the west coast gaps that AS/VA left since I know that was a goal of theirs from PHL. LAX was to begin (I expect it still will) and if it works, I wouldn’t be surprised to see SFO, SAN and maybe 2-3x/week to PDX, SNA, SEA, and maybe some other wild cards. It’s gonna be quite interesting to watch..

I could see them doing about 7-8 flights a day per gate myself. As for an agreement it could be B6 or even AS since all they serve for now is Seattle 1-2x a day and SFO seasonal. Who knows what’s actually going on but fun to think about overall.

PHL-LAX does look like it will launch, but not until next year. Playing around on their website, I see it starting on 4/12/21.

I am pretty sure E is CUTE with preferential use, so it shouldn’t be an issue.

No surprise here, especially since PHL still isn't an approved Covid-testing airport. Also arriving pax will still have to quarantine for 14 days depending on the country so clearly that's not helping either.

Going to add to your comment. Lack of booking for international trips and a second wave of covid possibly hitting real soon. Not surprised either. That also delays all other international airlines from flying to PHL.

Most likely will end up being October 25 with the rest of the IPD flying, I’m surprised they even announced trying for August 5.

IPD? You mean the other resumptions? I think it was DUB, AMS, maybe FCO? Hearing anything about the airport accepting international arrivals? No movement on that front means these are all moot.

More details from the Philadelphia Business Journal
https://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphi ... rning.html

  • The dominant carrier at PHL said Thursday the average flights per day at the airport will increase by 99% next month compared with June. American will fly an average of 187 daily departures.
  • American’s peak summer schedule will stretch from July 7 to Aug. 17, and PHL will average 207 daily departures during that time period.
  • The airline will resume service to more than 20 markets in July, including Austin, Texas; Denver; Hilton Head Island, South Carolina; Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket; San Diego; San Francisco and San Juan.
  • American (NASDAQ: AAL) will operate twice weekly cargo-only flights out Philadelphia to Rome, Milan and Frankfurt between June 27 and Aug. 5.


Not all that bad considering the AA PHL international network is 0.

Yeah, F9 has room to grow here during this time. Wonder if they can secure any gates at Terminal D, figures that there has to be a couple of common gates available now. It's not like Delta and United need all the gates they have now.

I know it’s the #1 destination but it perplexes me how PHL is going to have 20+ daily nonstops to MCO especially in a time when the future of theme parks is up in the air. Capacity to Florida is going nuts.

I definitely never expect F9 to increase to 6x daily for MCO especially once covid is over. It's going to be interesting to see if WN or maybe even NK hold up against the increase competition. I didn't included AA since I feel they can hold there own.

A little bit of a bummer that we have to wait for the PHL-CMN til at least 2023. Overall I don't blame AA for postponing some international route out for a few years

So... I think that's the only ex-757 route that isn't scheduled to fly next year then? Everything else is going A321/A21N/788.

I believe so. I guess since this route was only supposed to run 3x a week there's no point in rushing bringing it back next year as well.

It makes sense. Right now they can unfortunately route that traffic through JFK or BOS. I wouldn't be surprised if they could stick the A321XLR on the route by then.

Not sure where I saw it on here but I read that RAM to BOS was not so hot. Since they are now in OW, I wonder if a shift down to PHL could be in the cards before that potential 2023 launch.

I’ve read about that too in the BOS thread a few times. Some said RAM is not worried about loosing money since they’re government owned but who knows how true that is. I too have thought that a switch to PHL could happen. They’d definitely get more connections for sure
