Thanks for posting that 727Lover! I was going to make a post few days ago about AA returns to SRQ. And just seeings today’s update with Delta I think there is hope for SRQ to get back up there, but I do have a question. Where is United in all of this? Only a daily ORD flight? For how long?

SRQ
Delta
To ATL from 3 daily in June, 4 in July to 5 in August
DTW for July is a 0 and New York?

AA
To Charlotte 3 daily in July
To PHL 4x weekly in July?
DCA, DFW and LGA are coming back in July too according to this article and I have seen the connections when booking a flight to ORD. I did not see them in the weekly updates from Eniliria?

Any new updates from G4? I think they are bringing seasonal RFW in August.

How long until AS moves to Airside F to join their AA friends at TPA? In the olden times, is there room for them there during peak season?

Nonstop service between LAX and RSW will be welcome once this virus situation is under good control. Great flight times in both directions .... no before sunrise departures, no redeye!

Interesting Youtube video showing a walkaround at TPA in late June 2020. Noticed the ticket counters are being remodeled and removing the black signage overhang depicting the carrier name that has been a familiar sight for many years.

Pre-COVID19 would have been a tight fit at F, since BA/LH/D8/WK widebody gate usage would have resulted in another gate being blocked. AA has even used overflow gates at Airside E.

EDIT: Actually in the previous Youtube video link, AA is using gate E73 at the 14:06 time marker! Looks like roof repair/replacement construction at Airside F blocking some gates.

When I worked for Jeppesen and Boeing I brought the Dreamliner in a couple of times. Boeing wanted to bring in the 747-800 for flight testing but the airport said no. The PCN of the runway wasn't high enough and the two outboard engines end up throwing FOD all over the runway upon departure. So who is bringing it in and when?
