    It appears as though the story mentioned in November is correct. The only flights out of GSP on Frontier this month have been DEN and TPA. So, then begs the question. When do these seasonal flights to LAS and MCO pick back up?

    Yeah. That’s what I was saying. Since it was for a specific event they probably wouldn’t. However, I believe they should consider west coast flights before they add more Florida routes or east coast i.e. Boston. Would be pretty legit if they followed Charleston’s example and land Alaska. Granted there is enough traffic between Charleston and Everett to justify a flight to Seattle, I just think either California or Pacific Northwest have great potential to work out of GSP. The 787 business helped land an international flight from Heathrow to Chucktown. Wondering also if there is enough international travel between GSP and Europe to warrant a flight to say Frankfurt am Main or Munich (Been I’m quite a few of those as well and almost the same as my flights to Seattle). Being situated between two major hubs woth connections to just about everywhere is what hurts GSP. Charleston doesn’t really have that competition. I guess they are holding their own with what they can do, but I guess the traveler in me just wants to be able to hop on a plane and hop off at my final destination without a stop in between without having to go 100-150 miles to do so.

    I thought about something today and wondered if maybe the airlines, even though it was just a small cross section and for a specific event, looked at the numbers to the 3 different airports they used this last week to judge the feasibility of adding flights to the Bay Area. I mean, United had a flight to San Francisco, Delta did a handful of flights to San Jose, and Southwest did Oakland. They filled up 2 767’s, a few 757’s, and a handful of 737’s. I counted a total of at least 10 flights out there and 10 back with nothing smaller than a 737. Before comments are made, just remember what I’ve said before, every flight I’ve been on to the west coast has had a good amount of people on it that I boarded with at GSP. Interesting thought to say the least.

    It is counted. Not sure though if it’s counted with their charter statistics, or with Delta seeing as how the university is chartering the flight instead of it being a scheduled Delta flight.

    I know they are offering more flights to Dallas this weekend for the Cotton Bowl. I’ve seen a few Southwest flights to and from Love Field. Wondering if that’s part of it of or just coincidental plane swaps on the same weekend.

    Pretty cool that they are seeking Boston, Canada and daily nonstop to Denver. I still would love to see Seattle on the list of places they are looking at. I’ve flown that route enough times to know it could be a viable option. Every flight I have been on to Seattle had a lot of people I saw from my flights to and from GSP.

    Not really sure what you’re basing it off of. Just went on and looked and went all the way to August next year and still had two flights a week nonstop to MCO. What I did notice on the calendar was that February, March, and April all dates were available as opposed to the 2 days a week the rest of the months.

    Ok, that’s what I thought. I figured what I had just wasn’t showing everything. Was thinking that’s an awful lot of investment and hype to just go away like that.

    Y’all are much more resourceful folk than I. That being said, my one resource is not showing the Air Atlanta Icelandic (Germany, Mexico) cargo flights anymore. Are they seasonal? Is it just not showing all information? Or did they cease? Does anyone have any inside info?

    I stand corrected. I looked but missed that story. But nonetheless pretty cool to see them here.

    According to Flightradar24 the first of the Emirates 777’s is scheduled to land around 1:00 this afternoon. Sure would be awesome to be there to see it. Anyone able to snag any pics?

    I won’t be able to make it because I’m living in Savannah right now. However, I would like to see a couple things addressed. Namely if the projections are on track or even slightly off from the original projection have they started the planning on the second runway. The original master plan predicted it could reach capacity by 2020. The second one is a more long range thought that I don’t see addressed is, they are planning linear expansion of the terminal north and south. What is the plan for future expansion beyond that. Seems like with the way they are planning the current footprint is going to be crowded and leave no room for expansion. What would be their idea for the location of a new satellite concourse in the long range future. Far from capacity at the moment, but still forward thinking for when it does and they need to expand the terminals past the current footprint.

    I was going to post something about that last week. I was looking at inbound and outbound flight info into GSP on my Flightradar24 app and that caught my eye. Looks like they have been doing that route for at least a month and a half. I do have a question though for the airline aficionados out there. Are Air Atlanta Icelandic and Saudia Cargo subsidiaries of Senator? Because from the looks of it there are already Atlanta Icelandic and Saudia flights going to and from. Sorry for rambling but curiosity got the best of me.

    All this being said, Allegiant figured out the Vegas route didn’t work with MD-88’s. So that should mean Frontier will at least fly 37’s out west. I’m saying this without knowing what their fleet consists of, so I’m just assuming. As a semi frequent flyer it’s a welcome sight for western flights and more mainline aircraft coming to GSP. Too grown to be comfortable in the smaller jets. Lol.
