· US Airways:
It’s still going to be winter for several more (long) months, but US Airways already has their eyes on seasonal service this summer. Starting on May 19 the airline will start a second flight from its hub in Charlotte to Frankfurt. If Germany isn’t somewhere on your 2011 list of destinations, there are still plenty of other overseas options to and from Charlotte. There’s Dublin, London, Paris, and Madrid just to name a few, so feel free to take your pick of summer vacation destinations.
They must have gotten all those engine issues resolved, or maybe it’s just that Oprah’s audience really wants to head down under in 2011. Qantas is expected to bring back its A380 service between Sydney and Los Angeles. Things should be back in business as of January 17, so there will be no need to suffer on a plane that is less than super-jumbo. Maybe there’ll even be a sale to welcome back the biggest plane in the sky to this route—probably not—but we can hope, right?
Delta isn’t done with New England—they must be scared of JetBlue—as they’re also adding service between Boston and Pittsburgh. The new service means three new daily nonstop options between the two cities, but unfortunately for NFL fans the new service won’t start until April 1. That means Steelers fans won’t have easy access to the AFC Championship against the Patriots. Anyway, the new flights will leave Boston at 9:30am, 3:05pm, and 8:10pm thanks to service from the always comfortable 50-seat regional jet.
