You get AUS-HNL although that's probably not what you meant.

Any idea on when AUS-LHR actually comes back? I see March 2nd loaded into the schedule and 3x/week on the A350 and moving back to daily in April but I still have my doubts

That's a good start. I'm sick of AA and UA's Hawaii service that only includes a bag of pretzels.

That's too bad, though I wonder where you've flown on AA and UA to HNL, from LAX? If AA from DFW or UA from IAH I'd certainly expect at least a meal since it's about an 8 hour flight (average in either direction).

That’s as far as BA has posted so far, but it does seem promising that they haven’t outright cancelled the route, like they did with PIT, PDX, and CHS.

I did DFW-HNL a couple of years ago and can confirm there was exactly one pass with BoB and drinks, about an hour after departure. Around hour 5 I had to go looking for the flight attendants just to get more water. The plane was less than half full, but it was just unbelievable.

I do hope it comes back, but in all honesty, I can't see it coming back before Labor Day. Its too easy for AA/BA to funnel through DFW, and the same for UA/LH to funnel through IAH. (although I don't see LH or KL coming back at all)

Another CA company, Digital Realty, relocates their Global HQ to Austin. Should be good for a flight or two.

Norwegian ending longhaul is quite a blow for AUS. I've personally flown AUS-LGW for phenomenal value. I guess only BA will actually operate TATL from AUS this year, with a small chance of LH/KL by winter.

Occasionally it pays a visit to ABIA. It was reported a few days ago that Samsung recently purchased another 258 acres next to their current 300 acre campus.

This was posted a month ago in the 2020 thread. I guess we know now why they were in ATX.

Just noticed that you had mentioned in your original post. As a side note I flew on Azul last month from Fort Lauderdale to Sao Paulo and the flight time was about the same as flying from DFW to HNL but dinner and breakfast were served along with a couple of passes with the beverage cart. International flight of course but still...

AUS Airport Announcement Tomorrow

Wed Feb 03, 2021 8:35 pm

Sorry if I’m completely misinterpreting two emojis and this isn’t an announcement, but Austin Airport posted this on Twitter and Instagram: https://twitter.com/AUStinAirport/statu ... 0367378432

“Tomorrow: (Microphone and Airplane Emojis)”

Thoughts?

I haven’t analyzed all the airplane emojis but this one looks quite blue. JetBlue announces on Thursday's. Breeze? I think too soon.

Unfortunately it’s not a new flight. DM’d AUS on Instagram.

“Nope, it’s not an air service announcement! Something else that we’re excited to share tomorrow!”

Guess we’ll find out tomorrow if it was even worth making a thread :spin:

24 Diner is actually pretty decent - it's over on the east end of the terminal. I appreciate the fact that most of the food options are "local" but it is a shame that a vast majority of the restaurants are centered on ones found in the tourist trap areas. If they had a Matt's El Rancho or a Jack Allen's, that would be awesome. I hate to say it but it really seems that it's a majority of rabbit food restaurants.

DAL has the right idea and they have a Whataburger and Chick Fil A. You can cover most folks needs with those two restaurants, except on Sundays

I had the Earl Campbell’s Taco Truck tacos at AUS back in May and I’m still in love.

AUS could use a little more diversity in food options, but man oh man they’ve got tacos down.

I always thought "Riviera Paradise" by Stevie Ray Vaughn would sound good casually played by some airport band. IF they were ace musicians. Hey, it's kind of almost on topic.

In a post-COVID environment, looking at Google Maps, I wonder if AUS would consider expanding the South Terminal to join to a garage shed to the right, as well as what appears to be two hangars leftover from the AFB days. They did a good job converting the existing shed to terminal space, and no doubt could do wonders to these facilities as well. There are 10 narrowbody parking positions north of the three parking positions designated for the South Terminal, and likely could be used during the day while at night, are used for RON parking.

But currently the South Terminal is going to be lonely for a bit. F9 slashed quite a bit of flights in the most recent scheduling release, but could come back in a post-COVID environment.

A nice dot to connect. Don't think anyone has ever done it. We lost SNA sometime ago. ONT was lost, albeit it was a "dart on the board" route and F9 no longer flies to very many routes like they did that one summer.

Anyone notice that? They had announced 20ish routes out of AUS that year (man I remember seeing so many of their a320s that year..), cut a chunk of them, and then sometime later trimmed it down even further to just DEN, LAS, and MCO (the usual leisure routes).

G4 to fly to Bozeman and SJC this May. Wish I could take a trip up there.. don't think anyone has ever flown from AUS to Montana.

Yeah, I just thought that with 16 daily flights to LAX, that market is covered and some of the 3 million people that live north of Hollywood in BUR's catchment would use that route.

That's great, thanks for sharing! I hope things improve soon to the point that we get to occasionally see things bigger than the 737/320 at AUS again, aside from the longer routes (LHR, FRA and the upcoming HNL).

That's great, thanks for sharing! I hope things improve soon to the point that we get to occasionally see things bigger than the 737/320 at AUS again, aside from the longer routes (LHR, FRA and the upcoming HNL).


OAG shows Lufthansa set to return in June hopefully.

LH AUS-FRA MAY 0.7>0[0.4] JUN 0.7>0.4[0.3] JUL 0.7>0.4[0.4] AUG 0.7>0.4[0.7] SEP 0.7>0.4[0] OCT 0.7>0.5[0.2]


Fingers crossed. I wonder about HA as well; their 330 is still set to arrive in AUS on the evening of 21 April and return the next morning.

Not sleeping, I think those announcements were big enough to have their own threads...a couple of them making the rounds now. Pretty significant adds from American!

That makes sense. Haven't had time to just surf all of the forums lately. Just went to one I subscribe to and where I would have expected the conversation to be ongoing.

I certainly hope so. If you don't mind doing one, I'd love to get a trip report from you in this thread at some point...particularly on the AUS side. I'm sure others here would enjoy that as well.

Absolutely! I am doing the HNL-AUS segment. I'll share a link to the YouTube video once it happens. We are 40 days away from HA being in AUS.
