Just curious how the operators will keep costs down with the introduction of aerobridges?
I would hazard a guess the operators of OOL
are well aware of which airlines are prepared to pay for aerobridges. TT
is a no, but JQ
uses them at some airports. VA would also expected to be a user. There should still be hard stands available, since there's more gates than planned aerobridges.

Not everybody is flying to San Francisco," she said of the final destination on United. "A high percentage of our passengers are connecting on. That is where our true strength is in San Francisco."
Alison Espley isn't telling us anything new here. UA
offers superior connections over SFO
when compared to LAX
would likely only be taking some O&D pax from UA
(and some of their own pax who used to connect via LAX
). To backfill lost O&D pax, UA
can route more connections via SFO
if they wish. Which might explain eta unknown
's info above that UA
is not busy on SYD
