Yes, AM is to resume scheduled service in June 2015.

I believe they briefly operated a scheduled service before that was ostensibly just a way to position an aircraft for some charter work to CUN.
It is what it is.

It was daily from mid February 2004 to beginning of August 2005 then went to weekly and was coordinated with charters to CUN and SJD. That schedule ended in May 2007.

History shows loads were terrible for the most part but they were gaining traction from 2004 to 2005. They had one month at 78%. Some of the weekly flights had 80% loads certain months but who knows how it yielded. I flew BOS-MEX-ACA-MEX-BOS that high load month and it was packed but a lot of the plane was going to Pacific Mexican Resorts and I got a sweet deal ($400 for my flight on a DL code) so I'm sure others did as well. Connecting in MEX was a disaster too.

I'm sitting in the new UA club at terminal B, the club itself is pretty typical but the view...wow...probably one of the best "spotting" locations I've come across in the States.

Enjoy it, because that UA club's view blocks the old view from the Terminal B parking garage, so us plebs can't get the good view we used to have.

Gates 11 thru 41 are exactly as they were way back in 1975 .... TWA had multiple L10's and 747's .... UA D10's and 747's ... DL L10's ...

Actually, they're not exactly the same. On the C11-C21 side, UA re-positioned most of the jetways/doors to better accommodate their aircraft back in 1999-2000 when they did the $100m terminal remodel project. You can still see where the old jetways were mounted to the outside and old doors that were filled in. Currently, several of those gates can accommodate up to a 777 (C17, C19, C20) and C21 up to a 767. But the layout is not exactly the same. Also, I'm not sure if B6 is making any additional changes now that they are taking over that side of C.

I think the next big two big moves at Logan would be: if WN comes into Terminal A and DL agrees to that. The other one being the new AA dumping their side of the gates and consolidate their operations from US airways side. Both DL and AA are not that busy and if for anything are not keen to add any new destinations barring their hubs (or maybe PIT at the most may be retained).

I'm pretty sure the deal is done on both of those. It just hasn't been officially announced. There have been way too many reports of it for it to be "just a rumor".
Massport needs those NB gates in terminal E (gates 1&2), for airlines like FI, EI, AM, CM, PD, when they shutdown gates 7&8 for the terminal expansion which will be taking place next year. There's no other way around it.

AM flew a 737 into BOS (terminal E) arriving late evening, and the same crew would take it back to MEX with an 0830 (more or less) departure back to Mexico.

It would be interesting to see how AA has any plan for Boston other than to downsize. It seems they will start to drop non-hub cities such as MDT, BUF, SYR etc. The only exception maybe PIT. Maybe it's just a speculation! Hopefully if the city seals the 2024 Olympics deal, these folks will flock once again.

WN moving out of E in March makes sense. It gives Massport about 2 months to get those gates ready for the TATL Summer schedule. What I'm not buying is WN moving twice in less than 2 years.

I've been thinking about this. I wonder what the grand master plan would be to have Southwest move to A and then B? Even if AA/US consolidate, why wouldn't Southwest just stay in A? What would the plan be for those gates in A after Southwest moved to B? Maybe it's too far off to speculate, but it's an interesting approach.

2 things, IMO:
1) A is more expensive than B so if space is available in B, Massport has no incentive to lower the rent at A. Also DL may want their gates back at some point although I don't believe that at this point.
2) A is DL's terminal for all intents and purposes. In B, WN would have its own terminal with its own security checkpoint, more or less. Yes, they would share it with UA but UA is a lot smaller than DL and they're sort of to the side of the terminal.

It's worth noting a bit more of the history of wide-body aircraft spacing.

NW used to fly 747's out of BOS when they were in Terminal B (the side where UA is now - but before construction).

CO had DC10's in the same spot as above.

USAir used to fly a 767 into their gate area.

Sabena and AA had DC-10's on the AA finger.

Virgin Atlantic had a 747 in the gates between terminals B and C.

Eastern had L10's along their small old Terminal A.

As noted above, AZ, TW, UA, and DL all had a variety of DC10's, L10's, and 747's at C.

I believe the WN gates planned at Terminal A are tucked way back into the corner of the main terminal (the DL rj gates). The taxi in/out times at Terminal B (AA side), compared to the back corner of A, would be a significant cost savings for WN.

I am flying BOS-DXB-CGK in three weeks - that's at teast more reasonable, and quite comparable to other options via Europe. Fares are quite reasonable too ... approx. $1300, right after Christmas rush.

Right - quite a while ago. I bought the BOS-DXB-CGK tickets about three weeks ago as well ... it was another $100 less (around $1200) when i started searching back in October. BOS-DXB-DAC was about $1360 then. And now, most dates are sold out around New Year's. EK must be siphoning a lot of passengers from the east coast to the far eastern destinations, I guess.

Its unreal that for an extra 100 you get to travel an extra 7700 miles.

I just booked an August trip to Europe to MAD and FNC (Madeira) using miles on BOS-FRA-MAD and paying for one ways on MAD-FNC and FNC-LIS-PDL-BOS.

For Delta's international/widebody flights, does anyone know where the crews are located? I know that pmNW had the AMS flights on the 330s, so I would assume that there are some crew in the area or in AMS? What about th DL 763/764 crew?

Does DL have any sort of a base in Boston? I would have guessed not but I have no idea.

C17 is jetBlue's which EK uses. Massport uses the other gates for hardstand RON parking.

Does DL have any sort of a base in Boston? I would have guessed not but I have no idea.

Delta has a Flight Attendant base only at Boston.

What I'd like to know is when Massport will break ground on the new terminal E expansion (A380 gates), Anyone know?

Should be Spring 2015 I believe.

With the new airlines coming to Boston in 2015 Aeromemico and ELAL( both returning) and Cathay Pacific I was wondering could BOS see any additional new carriers in 2015? I would love to see TAP return and replace SATA to Lisbon.
There are a couple European destinations I could see possibly working seasonally or a 3 or 4 day per week from KBOS. Brussels, Manchester, Glasgow and or Edinburgh would be cities 757's could serve while the route or routes mature.
Your thoughts?

I wouldn't - its the only way to get to Europe for under $1000 during the summer.

I sure wouldnt. I love to see those A310's. BOS is one of very few airports worldwide to receive a pax A310

Well - SATA will still serve PDL even if LIS service changes hands. Currently, its services are heavily PDL centric with a few weekly frequencies to LIS. I guess it depends on how busy this route gets eventually ... if it requires upgauge, either SATA can increase frequency or TAP could introduce its heavies.

But yes - I love those beautiful liveries of white/blue scheme A310s ... a treat to watch!

I would like to see Norwegian here. We need some TATL low fare competition.

No it's not. If you buy in advance TK will take you to Europe for that price  

I don't see TP coming to BOS in the foreseeable future, if nothing else because they will be short of long haul aircraft. They are getting rid of their A340's and therefore cutting frequencies and capacity until the A359's start arriving in 2017. IMO, BOS would be a great A321neo destination for TP but alas, they have not ordered any.

Forgot about them and WOW as well. I personally would not want to fly BOS-IST-anything west of FCO but I know people will.

Did see BOS-MAD/LHR/PHL-ATH for about 850 in early and mid may.

Can always fly Condor from PVD.... $900 r/t after tax... premium economy for about $1,300 and Business for about $1,800

2) WN Schedule extension on 12/17. May see BOS-DAL added (finally) May see BOS-CAK cut.

My prediction was completely wrong.

WN BOS-CAK increased to 2x daily
WN BOS-IND new route starting at 2x daily

I flew the shuttle today from BOS - LGA. A few thoughts - the 717 is great for that route. I landed at Terminal C at LGA, which was fine. The big test will be tomorrow evening when I fly back.

Looking to do BOS-IST-SZG during Feb vacation for only $650 each. Can't beat it. LH/BA/DL/KL can kiss my a$$ 
I agree, anything further West in Europe it's too much of a detour.

Still - it's just $650 !!! Nothing beats that. Haven't seen European fares like that since 2007-2008 I think ...

It is a detour alright - but for the explorer mind, IST is always a fun destination to sneak out of the airport or explore 2-3 days easily. And nothing beats the food!

WN's strategy at BOS: Block B6's next move. I can't imagine its even close to a lucrative strategy, but curious to see to what extent WN will fight whenever B6 adds a WN route.

Hello all,
An FI 752 (TF-ISL) seems to be running charters in between BOS and the Carribean as FI 1101. Anyone know why?
