American Starts Three New Daily Routes Between Major Hubs
Direct flights to Mexico City from Philadelphia to start this summer
American to offer flights from Philly to Worcester
On Nov. 4, Southwest will be resuming nonstop flights between Houston Hobby (HOU) and PHL, but only flown on Sunday. Sunday is the day people travel home, but it's still rather peculiar for Southwest, almost Frontier like addition to do a weekly on this route rather than daily.
Southwest Airlines Extends Flight Schedule Through Early 2019
I terribly miss the non-stop flight to HOU... my parents live there still and so I visit from time to time. For the past couple years at least it's been a long day of travel to get there, and same for coming back.
I'll take at least the Sunday option. But you're right, it should be daily... WTF!
says something about the increased diversity makeup of the Philly area population, I'm guessing.
I didn't see this posted here, although this is two weeks old:
Nonstop Delta service from Boston to Philadelphia coming Oct. 1
While this addition is good, there is a deletion as well. Delta will be discontinuing the JFK connection service on 9/30. I guess that will mean some will just have to drive up to JFK for certain international markets.
Question for international travel pros: Qatar Airways looks like a fantastic airline and the Doha airport looks spectacular, which makes the idea of routing a long-distance trip through them appealing. Is Doha a logical/advantageous place to layover en route to points farther east? Is it competitive in terms of length of itinerary, or would a Philadelphian seeking to go to India, Thailand, Japan, etc always be better served booking something direct through New York and/or flying west rather than east? I imagine it depends on the destination, but curious if anyone's used the PHL to DOH flight for a trip that did not involve the Middle East as an end point, and if so, what your thoughts are on the experience.
despite my serious reservations about supporting the Qatari government (QA is 100% government owned), I looked into it to fly to Malaysia, and ended up using Delta/Korean Air through Atlanta based on cost, timing, and convenience.
You seem to fly in and out of Philadelphia as well. I really loathe having to go to NY to do some traveling.
Yes. Sometimes I'll do Newark, although at the end of a lengthy trip, even that train ride seems like more trouble than it is worth, but both LaGuardia and JFK are a PITA to get to/from at any time of day or night, and particularly now with LaGuardia under construction, even with layovers, I'm content to fly to an international hub airport such as ATL, ORD or DFW to head overseas.
