  1. We just moved to Burlington from Rocky Mount about a month ago and went to Greensboro today to visit Edward McKay's bookstore (sorry the Raleigh location closed). We found some great books and movies and then drove through downtown. I was really impressed with all the shops, restaurants, and bars on Elm Street! We'll definitely have to make another trip over there soon! I'm also excited to explore the rest of the Triad...Winston-Salem, High Point, Pilot Mountain, Thomasville, etc.
  2. I remember Bob Vernon and Charlie Gaddy! We just moved to Burlington from Rocky Mount. I hate that Spectrum/Time Warner doesn't offer WRAL here. They have WTVD, but it's not even in HD.
  3. Man that's too bad. I wonder how long before AA drops SDF. I wonder what they'll do with those planes if they do stop. Will they use them on other RDU routes or move them somewhere else?
  4. I'm sceptical that Virgin America would ever fly to RDU. And like you said if they do it won't be for several more years. They'll probably fly the same overserved routes everyone else flies (SFO-JFK, EWR, IAD, BOS, PHL, MIA, MCO, ORD, etc.) As far as United goes... RDU's three biggest unserved markets are LAX, SFO, and DEN (though Delta's is starting LAX). LAX, SFO, and DEN happen to be three of United's hubs. Wouldn't it make sense to bring mainline back to RDU and fly to all of these cities once daily (maybe twice for DEN or LAX). After reading a.net for a few years I've decided that I'll never understand airlines.
  5. You're welcome. Yes, that's me. I don't post a lot at on any of the boards (SSP, Skyscraper City, airliners.net, or here), but I read them all daily to keep up with what's going on. Who are you over at a.net?
  6. Here's the old proposal for Terminal A. Even though Terminal A needs to be remodeled more than C, I'm glad they're going ahead with C. Terminal C's design is so much more dramatic and interesting than what they were planning for A.
  7. It's less than daily during the winter (slow season). I think it was 5x weekly this past winter. Lufthansa also decreases Los Angeles, Boston, and San Francisco during the same time.
  8. Now that's a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. I forgot about that. It wouldn't be so bad if they chose a brand Charlotte doesn't have like Radisson, Conrad, Loews, or Intercontinental.
  9. I really wish they wouldn't convert the Hyatt into condos! It's the only Hyatt in all of North Carolina. If they want condos why can't they build a new building. That way we could have the Hyatt and still have condos.
  10. Actually Mexicana left/was thrown out of the Star Alliance before they applied for CLT service. Mexicana left on March 31, 2004. They didn't apply for CLT-MEX until November 30, 2004 (and Guadalajara on 1/3/05). But, I don't think they're coming anytime soon either. They were approved for service to both cities less than a month after they applied and they're still not flying to CLT. However in Nov & Dec of last year they applied to have their exemptions to fly the routes extended, so maybe CLT is still in the cards. It would be cool to have another International airline at CLT. Let's bring back British Airways while we're at it. Here's where I got the dates/info if anyone's interested: Mexico City http://dms.dot.gov/search/searchResultsAdv...chType=document Guadalajara http://dms.dot.gov/search/searchResultsAdv...chType=document
  11. They've announced plans for four new Bloomingdale's so far, though you may not have included them because they might open before the SF Bloomingdale's is finished. I don't really know the exact dates. Robinsons-May, South Coast Plaza Robinsons-May, Fashion Valley Center (San Diego) Filene's, Chestnut Hill (Boston) Hecht's, Chevy Chase (under construction, will open as Bloomingdales instead) Source: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?...8787&highlight= (about 3/4 down the page) However, having said all that, I don't think Charlotte will get a Bloomingdale's anytime soon. I would be great if they did, but there are several larger metros without Bloomingdale's that would probably get them before Charlotte (Detroit, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, Phoenix, etc.)
  12. Thank's guys! San Francisco, Union Square - 250,000 (expanding from 195,000) Houston, Galleria - 224,000 Dallas, Northpark - 218,000 Chicago, Michigan Avenue - 188,000 Beverly Hills, Wilshire Blvd - 185,000 Honolulu, Ala Moana Center - 181,000 Las Vegas, Fashion Show - 174,000 Troy (Detroit), Somerset Collection - 157,000 Plano (Dallas), Willow Bend - 156,000 Atlanta, Lenox Square - 154,000 Here are the links to the PDFs where I go this information: Neiman-Marcus (page 16/18): http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_files/...NMG_2004_AR.pdf Federated (Macy's, Bloomingdale's) (starting page 41): http://www.federated-fds.com/ir/vote/2005_fact_book.pdf May (starting page 7): http://www2.mayco.com/common/2004arp/2005_fb_full.pdf Nordstrom (starting page 28/52): http://library.corporate-ir.net/library/93...662/2004_AR.pdf I've never been able to find a list like this for Saks, Belk, or Dillards. If anyone knows where to find them let us know. Charlotte's Nordstrom isn't really that small. 65 Nordstroms are larger, 38 are smaller, and 3 are the same size.
  13. There's some interesting information in that post, but the Belk at SouthPark is larger than the Bloomingdale's in Boca Raton. Belk-SP is 329,000 sq. ft. and Bloomingdale's-BR is 270,000 sq. ft. Also, the Charlotte NM will be the second/third smallest store (tied with Austin's opening 2007), but it's not much smaller than most of the NM stores in Florida. Of course the Miami area has 5 stores that make up for their smaller size. 10 Smallest Neiman-Marcus stores: San Diego, Fashion Valley Center - 106,000 Boston, Natick Mall - 100,000 Miami, Bal Harbour Shops - 97,000 Tampa, International Plaza - 96,000 Orlando, Mall at Millenia - 95,000 Ft. Lauderdale, Galleria Mall - 94,000 Denver, Cherry Creek Mall - 90,000 Austin, The Domain - 80,000 Charlotte, South Park Mall - 80,000 Palm Beach, Worth Avenue - 53,000
  14. Here are some numbers. I got them from the Federated and May Fact Books: http://www.federated-fds.com/ir/vote/2005_fact_book.pdf http://www2.mayco.com/common/2004arp/2005_fb_full.pdf Full line Bloomingdale's range from 122,000 sq. ft. to 935,000 sq. ft. The average is 233,472 sq. ft. Macy's range from 2,000 sq. ft.(Honolulu Jewel Gallery) to 2,168,000 sq. ft. The average is 177,890 sq. ft. Both averages include some specialty Macy's/Bloomingdale's that sell furniture only, jewelry only, etc. I didn't include the overlapping stores that Federated is closing. Here are the NC stores in question. Hecht's: Southpark (Charlotte) - 200,000 Streets at Southpoint (Durham) - 180,000 Triangle Town Center (Raleigh)- 180,000 Crabtree (Raleigh) - 175,000 Northlake (Charlotte) - 165,000 Hanes (Winston-Salem)- 154,000 Northgate (Durham) - 152,000 Carolina Place (Charlotte) - 150,000 Friendly Center (Greensboro) - 148,000 Wendover Place (Greensboro) - 140,000 Mayfaire Town Center (Wilmington) - 140,000 Cross Creek Mall (Fayetteville) - 133,000 Cary Towne Center (Cary) - 105,000 Lord & Taylor: Crabtree - 98,000
  15. They're leaving Miami, Des Moines, Madison, & Springfield, IL too. I think I read at airliners.net that the judge in charge of the bankrupcy will decide on Thursday whether Southwest or AirTran will get to buy part of the company.
