San Diego Air Service Announcement 09/15

Wed Sep 15, 2021 12:39 pm

Any guesses on what this could be?

They used the teapot and crown emoji, so appears to be something British related, although BA already serves SAN.

Could that market sustain a second British route? I don't think TUI to MAN is out of the question since SAN is certainly a sun destination that fits into their network profile

Could also be more generic than that. Teapot is for secrets/gossip i.e. "don't spill the tea" and the crown is for power i.e. "we have a secret you don't".

I think you are looking too deep into it for an airport twitter account.

Perhaps resumption of BA service with the new Club Suite?! I'm hoping.

I hope SAN wouldn't make the mistake of using the crown for DUB service.

FYI, this was being discussed on the San Diego thread last night: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1456019

My guess is, as has already been posted here, that BA is announcing their return to SAN. As I posted on the other thread yesterday, BA shows in their booking engine service beginning Oct 13, 3X weekly for starters, on a 777. (Just a month away!)

This would be pretty important news for SAN!

Gosh I hope it's OMA! Is OMA the largest unserved market worldwide from SAN right now?

Alaska serviced this market with success daily until WN came in. Then Alaska left after a year, and then WN left. This is a huge hole and selfishly, my parents would benefit greatly from this! They basically quit going to SAN when the nonstop on Alaska went away and they were going at least twice a year for golf. The Alaska schedule was perfect for this route, the WN schedule was all over the board and terrible times quite a bit of it when they did fly it, especially at the end.

Air Canada is already back & WS is returning in early October. LH is unknown from any reliable sources. Japan has been back for months now.

BA was really the big mystery so it will be very exciting and important if this is about their return; we should find out pretty soon as the SAN website generally opens up about 9 PT.

IMO, Wiki is totally unreliable for future route news but the SAN page is pretty good for current and past info.

I wonder if it will be a 772, or 773? It would be interesting if BA started using the A350.

It's interesting about AC, remember pre-covid, Air Transat announced SAN-YUL? Now Air Canada Rouge is going to do SAN-YUL, and SAN-YYZ goes from AC Rouge to AC mainline, it seems as if Air Transat is now a subsidiary of AC, but AC dropped their bid to acquire Air Transat, maybe Air Transat changed their mind about SAN-YUL and AC snapped it up?

This is the best news I wish for. It’s been 33 years and I’m still angry about PSA selling out and then getting gutted.

Both BA and AA's web sites just say "777". Should be obvious if someone is able to pull up a seat map.

Until a few weeks ago when BA was just pushing back the old schedule, it actually was showing 359 for the SAN flight, then it changed to 789, and now with this announcement it shows 777.

US's coasts were so high that the PSA acquisition was doomed. Too bad a rising HP and PS couldn't have joined forces, and could have kept "Pacific Southwest Airlines" as that would have worked for a merged carrier. PSA had a battle on it's hands moving eastward from the West Coast (see Virgin America) but the LAS/PHX hubs combined with intra-Cali would have made a nice combo until later consolidation. Ah hindsight and "what-if" speculation.

USairways (USAir) was where my anger had been all these years. Even the US/AA/PSA retrojet only made one appearance in SAN. I guess PSA was just as much to blame by selling out.

Somebody needs to convince a local billionaire to donate enough money to the San Diego Aerospace Museum to put a smiling PSA-liveried 727 on poles in Balboa Park along with a fund for its upkeep.

Unfortunately, by 1985, the business was depressed and PSA was losing money quickly. They did try to put together a plan to acquire the remains of Braniff in 1983, but that didn't work out, and, if they hadn't found somebody to merge with, they would likely have gone belly up too. Unfortunately, US Air didn't have a clue how to effectuate a merger; they acquired Piedmont and PSA at the same time, and tried to force both of those cultures into the US culture, which didn't work. PSA was California's airline, and Piedmont was a "class act" carrier, even when it was a regional. US had a history of less than great service, although, honestly, my experience with them (including back in the Allegheny days) includes memories of really great people.
