Negotiate with the New airport in Brunswick Maine. Portland is too small for anything other than commuter and the drive from Manchester is a pain.


PWM is getting bigger. jet blue has a few flights a day with a320 to jfk, us airways (a319) and delta flies a md88 out of pwm twice a day.


I'd love to see them in BGR but it will never happen. They definitely have the space to accommodate and it would be nice for some competition with Delta and US Airways. I recently looked into flights to Tampa, as much as people complain about pricing from Bangor, it was within $50-$75 of PWM plus I didn't have to drive 2 hours to Portland and pay for parking.

How about Virgin America?

They need to fly to: MEM, GRR, HNL, and ANC. They also need to add more service to: DAL, MCI, EWR, LGA, and DTW. That is just my opinion.

Through Airtran they already fly to MEM and GRR. They will fly to HNL as soon as they're ETOPS certified.

They cannot add many more flights at DAL or MCI because they they can't get any more gates at those airports and the ones they have are occupied nearly all day. However with Frontier's recent pull-down of flights at MCI they might be able to get more gates and add more flights there.

They can't add any more flights at EWR and LGA because those airports are slot-controlled.

Agree rw. Dood needs to go! Though I did say BFL would be nice if SWA decided to begin service there, but I know it will never happen. They couldn't even keep the Allegiant flights to LAS. Granted, competition with United to DEN would be nice, as would competition to Houston, and I know that people in Bakersfield would like to see a route to SMF again, it still won't happen with Southwest.

Then again, I am from Bakersfield, so I am a little bias as to wanting service added to BFL.
