Nice, people have been clamoring for this ever since they dropped the 2nd daily flight.

The December/January upgage is interesting. Maybe it's for students.

Interesting that they're going with Raleigh/Durham. That's more of a business destination than a leisure one.

Though Spirit has Florida covered, so I guess the Raleigh doesn't have as much competition.

Spirit is launching non-stop flights to Raleigh/Durham from Boston. Flights begin May 2. It will be a single daily flight.

Yeah, I think they dropped it around the time of the laptop ban.

Yeah, they were running 2x daily up to that point. Boston was one of a bunch of US destinations that saw reduced frequency as a result.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Talked to a Jet Blue flight attendant and he said they will definitely be flying Boston London this year, though I've been hearing this for the past several years. I guess time will tell but he said it was a definite.

I am not saying it won't happen (tons of rumors), but flight attendants are not always the most reliable sources of information at an airline.

EK used to have 3x dailies to JFK and now those are just 2x now. Perhaps the cut backs happened across the board...

I think the market was a bit oversaturated at that point too. 3 daily flights to the persian gulf (quatar entered). Plus Turkish and the other European carriers competing for connecting traffic.

Well, European competition meant that meant it was really easy for business travellers to re-route their trip through laptop friendly countries, meaning the hit in traffic was very immediate.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Royal Air Maroc's request to serve Casablanca-Boston has been approved. Their new terminal will be in use by the time the flight starts.

Also - LATAM increases Sao Paulo - Boston to 5 weekly in early April.

Logan Airport almost hit 41 million passengers too for 2018.
