Well you can only add so much and also look what TF Green has received in the past year: SATA, Norwegian, and now Frontier to Orlando and Denver.

Also- This is the time of year where we probably won't hear much anyways except for a new Caribbean addition from JetBlue (which hinges on them being awarded the Boston-Havana frequency if they do not get it they put the plane on Boston-Antigua).

Lets see what happens in September and October for any possible new additions.

Rumors are that Trump will roll back the Cuba policy to the Bush era. That means no more Havana*.

You cant ignore politics.

*Rumors are from a right-wing tabloid, so dont eat too much salt

Re: Logan Flight Additions

For any KBOS plane spotters, we've got a special treat today. An Antonov 124, a beast of a Soviet era cargo plane, will be arriving @ 3:30pm.

See: https://flightaware.com/live/flight/VDA5062

Enjoy.

Some of these are leased to NATO. I assume its picking up outbound equipment.

On a somewhat related (but certainly less political) note, I was in Baltimore last week and the city of Austin had an air stream set-up in the inner harbor (think Faneuil Hall) that was providing maps, information, and promoting Austin to tourists. Perhaps we should look at similar out of the box type promotional efforts but focus on overseas locales that have new direct air service and populations that would value what our area has to offer.

Logan could be getting competition on Boston-Santo Domingo.

PAWA Dominicana is rumored on a.net to launch Boston sometime in 2018.

No surprise! Its two daily weekdays once daily weekends. Weekend flights seem timed to feed Transatlantic in Logan.

Also Delta is doubling Cancun service for all of winter (Jan-April) now with Saturday and Sunday flights. They were running daily for Xmas/New Years in previous additions.

On top of Pittsburgh and Cancun, I've heard Delta's adding a lot more flights come September. No specifics but sounds like a decent increase in flights out of Logan.

It's a saturated route but Chicago is the biggest hole in their network from Logan.

It's going to be interesting to see how they finagle everything over in A. Southwest occupies what? 5 or 6 gates? They won't be leaving A until all of the work in Terminal B is done come the end of 2018.

Chicago and DC are their two biggest holes. Both of those cities are indeed saturated. It will be interesting to see what they do there. They recently added Seattle - O'Hare and that's a market that already had 3 carriers on it, much like Boston - O'Hare. Never mind the Southwest service to Midway.

Is this on top of the recent additions such as Austin,KC, Buffalo and Norfolk?

I was not aware those were made public already (turns out its been public since April). The additions I've heard about do include Austin, KC, Buffalo, and Norfolk, and I believe that's all of them, at least as of right now.

I'm hopeful about BOS-DCA and BOS-ORD but doubtful they'll be added in the near future. There have been rumors going around for DCA the past year but they seem like only rumors.

Delta added another one for the 4th.

Boston-New Orleans Sat/Sun only service starts 2/10/18 on E175 aircraft

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Another carrier will be flying to Paris - CDG. On May 2, 2018 Norweigan Longhaul will begin non-stop service from Boston to Paris with 4 weekly flights.

Service will run on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

I wonder if/when they announce seasonal service to Barcelona.

Hopefully Air Canada is happy with its performance and they not only bring it back in 2018, but extend its run too.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Laptop ban has been lifted for Turkish, Emirates, and Etihad. Sounds like Qatar's ban will be lifted soon too.

https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/wor...E7L/story.html

I wonder if this will entice Emirates to bring back their second daily? Or, if Etihad ever wanted to get into BOS, launching a route now would all but ensure that Emirates never goes back to double daily.

I canít see Etiahd entering the Boston market anytime soon. Between the daily flight to Doha and the daily flight to Dubai, that should be enough (for now anyways) to handle all of the traffic to/from India. It would be nice if Emirates sent the 380 on their flight to make use of the 3 expanded gates Massport had built. As of right now only British Airways sends theirs and only what, 3 times a week? Massport should have built E10-12 with 3 jet bridges, 2 at the lower level and 1 at the upper level to allow for dual operations on a plane like the 77W Ė this is how LAX has their 380 gates setup.
