Interesting: I'm checking flightaware.com now for today and BTV-ORD, BTV-CLT = all RJs. AA on BTV-DFW and MIA aren't operating, and UA isn't flying BTV-DEN but F9 is. DL on BTV-ATL is either 1x 319 or 1x 320 at 6am. And UA is flying a 739 to EWR tomorrow morning at 6:30am? Can the runway even handle that type of plane lol? BTV is so up and down with scheduling.
Curious about when these projects are scheduled to be done, article does not say.
It's kind of funny, if you've ever been to BTV before you'll note that not much has changed in terms of expansion and configuration of the actual airport since the 1990s. It's similar in terms of a look and feel to the Fargo, ND airport, and a slight step up from say TTN. A few years ago I flew DL boarding a CR2 to DTW (and then to AUS on a A320) and still boarded walking outside with no actual jetway. I think it was when B6 came in was where BTV got its first actual terminal boarding gate. And it's interesting because PWM and MHT have always had them.
Although, inbound on DL AUS-ATL-BTV was a fun ride basically doing a steep right hand turn banking turn to land on a 73G. I picked that flight out on purpose, you'll never see DL flying a 73G into BTV ever again.
And alas, the last route, AA mainline to ORD too this summer, so that makes PHL, DCA, CLT and ORD. Will wait and see what comes of MIA for Winter.
Thanks for pointing this out, that is quite a milestone. Almost reminiscent of the old USAir days.
So I see, using August as an example:
ORD-BTV evening A319.
CLT-BTV midday A319.
DCA-BTV afternoon A319.
But where are you finding PHL-BTV mainline in the schedule? I searched a series of dates May-Dec and only see Piedmont and PSA RJs.
UA actually experimented with BTV-ORD flying something like 3x A320 back in 2007. I don't think it lasted all that long, at least back in the day once the recession hit. I remember this on vacation and watching one take off at sunset over Lake Champlain
