    Nashville International Airport

    Well, the fact is their business community isn't incredibly large and their tourism market is more regionally driven, besides the obvious singular MAJOR int'l event every May.

    They'd be the only domestic player. Sun Country does their charter service out of Smyrna/Rutherford County Airport (MQY).

    Not at all. BNA hinted in the Facebook post that it is a new airline. Thinking it could be WOW, Icelandair, Condor, or maybe even Aer Lingus.

    New airline announcement coming tomorrow morning at 10am.
  5. I can almost guarantee had banks not be so skiddish on lending for spec space that that version would be standing today. Folks complain about Signature Tower failing, this design and plan blew it far out of the water than any of the Signature plans ever would've done. One of the most innovative proposals for a mixed-use project anywhere in this country.
  6. The only thing I see wrong with this is there needs to be either solar panels or a green roof atop it to reduce heat kept by a blank roof or at least create power for the building. That said, it's fantastic otherwise and really makes it pop within a sea of glass.

    JW Marriott - 385' - 34 Floors

    Not even close, there are multiple buildings in Charlotte and Atlanta alone that blow this out of the water.

    WestJet would move heaven an earth to stop that, since they literally follow WN's business model pretty well, with some service to Europe on some ER jets. The best thing for them to get into Canada is to do an agreement with WestJet.

    I'd personally prefer expansion of JetBlue at BNA and to grow their domestic options and also bring in some Latin American destinations. I worked for Southwest and they're a great company, but the product JetBlue provides to the Caribbean is superior to that of Southwest. My bet for a non-Icelandic destination is on Amsterdam via Delta, since that is a hub for them. Delta can afford to skip Atlanta and let's face it, while it's a machine when good, one thing goes wrong and Atlanta goes downhill very fast and it honestly needs to have some wealth spread, it's just a little healthier for the company and reduces some risk.

    Load factors that high will have an immediate impact in either this flight going daily, upgauge in aircraft, or both in the long run.

    Not sure, but it is guaranteed to have a load factor >80%, and I feel that's a very conservative low figure.

    The inaugural British Airways flight just took off and is on the way! Should arrive on time at roughly 545pm.

    So in retaliation to Southwest starting BNA-ATL routing 5x daily, Delta is upgauging several flights per day to 757s. I forgot exactly which ones but they start in August as well. Delta sees the chips laid down and raises by a ton.

    Literally will never happen.
  15. And if that happened, go for the original 750ft design instead of the ridiculous over 1,000ft design.
