    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Alright guys, I know we have similar conversations between the same 8 or so of us (maybe we should just discuss it all over a beer lol) but i was looking through the facility master plan and came across this drawing. We can see 2 new runways, as well as new facility locations located throughout the new taxiways. Along with this is a satellite terminal for regional jets, a destruction for most of E which would allow for more widebodies. Lastly, another runway located to the east. although it is all quite distant, this is what is needed for CLT. more space, taxiways, and equal runways which would allow for less congestion. Thought this was interesting, cheers!

    Once they take over the Phase I of the new concourse I could definitely see them adding a lounge.

    You are correct, the 767 and 330s will go first. However, a quote from SimpleFlying: "Earlier in 2018, American placed an order for the acquisition of 47 Boeing 787 Dreamliners, which the carrier intends to use as replacements for the 767. As part of the fleet review of American, the carrier evaluated the outcomes of retiring either the 767 or Airbus’ A330-300. The idea was to use 22 787-8 Dreamliners to substitute the 24 retiring 767s and another 25 Boeing 787-9s to replace the 15 Airbus A330-300s and ageing 777-200s." AA is investing to keep the 777 around long enough to last for the 787-9 orders.

    I agree with the midwestern gaps. Maybe Columbia, MO or Jackson Hole?

    It was a podcast kicking off Q1, they are additional to those listed.

    It is strange because AA tries to keep their fleets localized to a given hub. For example, ORD has all 787 (no 767 or 777) and DFW has 787 and 777 hubbed there (no 330s). With that said, why would AA switch from a 330-300 to a 777 that is also being phased out? In another news, I have seen multiple articles discussing the launch of four new routes from CLT this Spring; 2 domestic and 2 intl. Any ideas?

    The route switch for CLT-Havana to MIA got denied today, any chance this route stays?

    I flew the redeye a month ago and there was not a single seat open. Side note, it was an A320, which I have never seen on the CLT-DFW route. If you're a leisure traveller from west coast (Hawaii, California, Arizona, etc.) odds are you are going to have to take a red eye back to catch a morning flight out of CLT-XXX. I don't think it has anything to do with it being a leisure route, most likely just rising fuel costs more or less.

    Is JetBlue increasing flights out of CLT? Saw an increase in both JFK and BOS.

    There is no way this project is $200 million over. As reflected on the project site, the main terminal expansion is budgeted at $247 million.
