British Airways will begin using a 787-10 on the London Heathrow route from Nashville beginning in September 2020 (which has more capacity then their 777-200). It seems like this flight at least during the spring, summer and fall months is doing phenomenally well, especially since it is not even 2 years in and being upgraded like this. This is also British Airways’s airplane with the most premium capacity (business and first class seats). Again BNA started expanding too late haha.

It fits their business model of connecting small towns to tourist destinations, so good for BNA. These flights will likely be 1-2x per week with maybe the exception of Pittsburgh.

They got Grand Forks and Sioux Falls reversed.  Grand Forks is in ND, Sioux Falls is in SD.  Anyway, this is pretty cool news.  I've got friends in Bozeman and Greensboro who are excited for this.

Also an article about this in USA Today said that nonstop service to Peoria, Illinois will be added? Don’t know if that is an error or not.

In any case at this point there are only a few glaring holes in BNA’s Domestic Network, namely being in my opinion Sacramento, Santa Ana/Orange County, Hartford Connecticut, West Palm Beach, Cincinnati and Indianapolis along with others. However with Allegiant and Southwest (despite max issues) clearly wanting to expand at BNA I am fairly certain almost all of these destinations will be added in the near future. It’s actually phenomenal how far BNA has come in terms of the nonstop destinations in only the past 4-5 years!

That being said I am hoping that this growth domestically will also be paired with growth Internationally once the expanded International Arrivals facility is built in 2023. If amazon, like the rumors say on this forum, is actually wanting to expand to HQ3 type numbers of 10,000-15,000 employees then I can’t imagine that kind of large business move won’t come with at least some increased demand for international flights especially with the salaries they will be offering. In any case sorry for rambling and here’s hoping for continued growth and expansion for BNA in the future!

Really cool if you are wanting to go to Glacier NP.

Allegiant currently has two weekly flights to and from Harrisburg, PA (of course I'm sure you all already knew that).  I have a brother who has a home about 20-30 minutes away from Harrisburg.  During the holidays we were trying to book a flight for my mother who lives in Nashville to Harrisburg and it was a little cumbersome to do because of their flights are on Sundays and Thursdays.  Even if we  were able to work around their flight schedule we still wouldn't have been able get her on one of those flights because by Thanksgiving they were booked.  We ended up flying her into Philly.  An Allegiant booking agent told me that the airline had thought about adding one additional flight during the holidays but wasn't able to get approval in time.  So, I suspect in 2020 Nashville just might see additional seasonal flights to and from select locations added to their schedules.  Right now you can't get a flight to Harrisburg on Allegiant until February 13th.  What's driving that type of volume this time of the year?

I’m the one that got the Dakotas mixed up. They blur in my head. I also did not get the Peoria flight, and it looks like the Grand Forks flight is a special flight one time only like Sean mentioned. 

These flights can have pretty big implications for Nashville. These are pretty clearly setup to bring people to Nashville for leisure. Assuming they get just 125 people on each flight, that means we will have over 1000 people coming into Nashville each weekend on just these flights. It’s crazy to think, but the people Allegiant brings with this announcement could effectively fill a hotel like the new Embassy Suites downtown.

Has anyone flown Allegiant before? My sister and her husband have a few times from Knoxville and the rates are good but they have always had multiple hour delays.

 

Also, will the expansion of the airport allow for BNA to take on more domestic lanes? If so, what is the capacity gain for the expansions?

I've flown them on the Grand Rapids to BNA route and the Punta Gorda to BNA route.  Both were newish Airbus planes and no issues.  Would fly them again in a heartbeat.  Seat is a little thin on the padding, but much better than connecting with another airline.

Maybe the airlines need to hook up with gym memberships for people that fly and lose weight so they can fit in the tiny a$$ seats.

I've used them several times and I was overall pleased with my experience.  Do they nickle and dime you?  Yes.  Is the overall experience lacking in luxury?  Yes.  But in the end, you do still generally save a pretty significant sum of money, and if you're just flying a couple hours there and back... I dunno... does it really matter if you have to pay for a pillow and don't have an in-flight movie?  I wouldn't fly an airline of that caliber to Mumbai or anything, but for a trip lasting only a few hours, I think they're just fine.
