Just a thought here....
Why is it that the TSA will seemingly in no way return to Klamath Falls (LMT) for the service that PenAir wanted to start from PDX,
yet I haven't heard the same reasoning or reluctance to return to Stillwater,OK (SWO) for American Eagle's service there?

Does AS plan to expand more out of PDX this year in addition to the all ready announced routes?

Not to be rude, but you ask this all the time and the answer is always 'yes.' If you're looking for specifics on what routes those might be, you just have to be patient. Alaska has commented many, many times that they are committed to Portland and making AS the largest and most dominant carrier from PDX.

Alaska will expand as the fleet grows, both mainline and regional.

Oregon tourism market is booming thanks to the many new flights being added.

Oregon tourism isn't booming because of the new flights, the new flights are being added because the economy is booming. Airlines don't add flights between cities based on hope or anticipation. The Portland/Oregon economy is doing very well and has been doing well for some time, and because of that, we are seeing an influx of new flight options from PDX, EUG, MFR, and RDM.

They should just hire a private company to do security like Covenant Security...they handle security at these airports:

-San Francisco International Airport (SFO) San Francisco, CA
-Glasgow International Airport (GGW) Glasgow, MT
-Sioux Falls Regional Airport (FSD) Sioux Falls, SD
-Havre City-County Airport (HVR) Havre, MT
-Tupelo Regional Airport (TUP) Tupelo, MS
-Wolf Point Airport (OLF) Wolf Point, MT
-Sidney Richland Airport (SDY) Sidney, MT
-Lewiston Municipal Airport (LWT) Lewiston, MT
-Glendive Dawson Community Airport (DGV) Glendive, MT
-4 Mile City Frank Wiley Field Airport (MLS) Miles City, MT

I'm sure they could handle PDT and LMT...

Looks like we'll see if DL was bluffing about pulling the PDX-NRT flights if HND opened only partially to US carriers. Maybe the DL NRT hub (inherited from NWA) is toast?

Would Delta add PDX-PVG in lieu of PDX-NRT? Intel and Nike both have contracts with Delta, and coincidentally both companies top Asian destination from PDX is PVG.

I don't know. DL's whole Asia strategy is built on the NRT hub inherited from NWA. Many passengers on the PDX-NRT flight are actually continuing on with DL to other cities in Asia. DL doesn't offer any connecting opportunities from PVG, so they'd have to fill the plane with people for whom that's their final destination. Also, I'm not sure the 767 is the right plane for PDX-PVG nonstop, DL might not want to put a bigger/better/newer plane on the route from PDX.

Indeed this is very true, it is hard to wait for the announcements. Because PDX is growing so quickly, we forget that most airports don't have the big amount of announcements we have been getting lately, so it seems even harder to wait knowing something is coming, just no idea what.

I was wanting to say the same thing, it is because Portland is popular with tourists from Europe. Daimler makes those Sprinter Vans here, German business people have been coming here for years & have seen the beauty & number of outdoor activities the area offers & they bring their families back to see a bit of paradise.

Not at the risk of cannibalizing their SEA-PVG route & PDX-NRT is a much stronger route with 90% LF's. I'd expect HU with a tie up with AS to make the first jump China - Portland.

Quoting Airnerd (Reply 57):

DL is going away from the NRT hub in favor of a SEA hub. DL will likely always operate some flights from NRT to non-US soil, but the reliance on the NRT hub is waning.

I'd be surprised, but I guess never say never. I could see this being one of the routes that gets the E-175 as they start trading out some of their older Q400's coming off of lease.

It's one non-stop flight per day right now on a Q400. That would have to grow to 4-6 or more flights per day on Qs and 175s before you're going to see a 737 on the route. It's going to be a while.

I don't know about that one, but MFR-SEA may be a possibility. But even a 319 to SLC on DL or mainline to SFO on UA might be more likely.

I'd guess MFR-SEA is short enough that it will probably stay on a Q. Based on current frequency, and what they've done in other markets (EUG), UA to SFO is probably the best shot at a mainline service at MFR. Still, as discussed a few weeks ago in this thread, there's still quite a bit of growth that would need to happen first.

This may be old news, but I just went on K5's newly designed website and found out their flights to OTH end on 21MAR. Also, their proposed new service to SEA, CLM, and MWH has been postponed. Sounds like the end is near....at least in the Pacific Northwest. I hope PenAir takes over and is successful with their PDX "hub"!

Hey pdx, yes this is news that has been announced, but still noteworthy as the date looms close. KS is beginning service to OTH from PDX the next day or two after K5 bails, they will have 1 r/t a day to start, likely the same number of seats with K5's 3 flights.

Cancelled, for sure. K5 publicly has stated they are having a difficult time retaining pilots, which I firmly believe is not because there is a pilot shortage, but because it's K5. Let's face it, if you are smart enough to become a pilot, then you can surely grasp the concept of interviewing your prospective employer before agreeing to fly for them. K5 is a pubic hair swirling the drain of the industry, they got what they gave..

Quoting pdx (Reply 71):

They stopped operations in California, all but one route in Oregon PDT-PDX & El Dorado & Hot Springs AK to Houston & Memphis & Harrison AK to Memphis, at least that is what is on their website, although who knows from day to day. For all I know all the AK, TX & TN flying could end as well, given their "pilot shortage".

Just keep in mind K5 filed for CH 11 Bankruptcy in Oregon on Feb 5th 2016. There may be a shell of something leftover after they shed their debt, but their track record is going to keep them from ever being a success.

Oh yeah, what I came here to post: I was watching flightradar24 to see who was making noise over my house, then I was poking around and saw KS 340A EUG-PUW. I guess with 2 frames here they are operating a few school charters. Nice to see them making money with their fleet here in Portland, while they wait to start more flights up at PDX.

CSN 329 would spend 14 hours here at PDX. They eventually departed at 1205 am the next day. A very long 24 hour flight for these pax.

Does sound like SeaPort created their own "pilot shortage". No pilot wants to work for them cause of their very bad reputation that they caused.
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of. Same with OAK & SJC when it comes to SFO.

Out of those Mokulele, just because I can see myself very happy living back in Hawaii, if that's an option. But MW has been picking up flying all over the country & they are doing well for themselves, last resort is SeaPort after all the above mentioned carriers. K5 followed a bad business model & they shot themselves in the foot, eventually their reputation caught up with them & now it proceeds itself. K5 will be an example of how not to run an airline in future business classes, IMHO.

Just got a response from the Port of Portland:

Good morning,

Thanks for contacting Portland International Airport and inquiring about the Concourse E Extension project



The Port project team continually works closing with Alaska Airlines as we navigate through the details of this large scale project. The aviation industry is very dynamic and changes happen all the time, and so we are focused on building the infrastructure necessary to support all of our airlines, while providing the most flexibility now and into the future. At this time, Alaska’s expansion into more Embraer-175 and while reducing the Q-400 fleet has not significantly impacted the project and we are continuing forward as planned.

Some of those have 135 ops, but I don't think Silver does.

I know some of them do, but Silver and PenAir don't hire 135 pilots, which is my question of why he listed them.

Hawaiian leaving with wing walkers. The alley is rather tight for the A330 and wing walkers are required.

Who's ground handling HA these days?

PenAir hires a few 135 FOs for their freight program in AK.

Here's an update on the security situation at LMT, direct from your airliners.net member: http://ktvl.com/news/local/rep-greg-...port-talks-about-restoring-service

Walden said a bill to restore TSA service could be passed as soon as next month.
It's funny when I tell people I love planes and they think I'm weird.

This is 4x/week. It was 2x/week last summer. Doubling the capacity after only one year!

I am very happy to see PDX adding more and more capacity to Europe.

Condor will also be doubling capacity to PDX this summer, going 4x/week PDX-FRA from July.

Are these planes using standard jetway gates at PDX?

DAL and UAL uses jetway for their Embraers and AS uses both jetway and ground loading......
