General Aviation

In reference to an edit by User: there are General Aviation flights which operate into and out of Bradley International Airport. The reason they are not listed on the airport's website is both of these terminals are privately owned/operated and as a result they are not open to the public. They are only open to private and charter aircraft, their crew and passengers. Misterrick 21:52, 19 October 2005 (UTC)

So why are you are you including the general aviation in this article if it is not open to the public? 21:08, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

It is part of this article because private and charter aircrafts don't use the public A or B terminals and the reason these General Aviation terminals are not open to the public is because unlike Terminals A and B there are no airlines that operate out of these terminals, they are strictly for incoming and outgoing private and charter aircraft and unless you are departing from or meeting someone at the GAT you cannot just go inside and walk around, If you did and without a legitimate reason for being there you are basically told to leave.

Trivia Section

This article contains a trivia section listing airlines and aircraft types which a spotter may see landing at BDL. I would submit that such a list is not necessary and unimportant, since it would always be redundant with any similar list from any other mid-size airport in the US. In any case such a list will always be incomplete, as spotters cannot note every type that lands. The capper is the general discouragement of trivia sections anyway. I am removing. --Bridgecross 16:54, 1 November 2007 (UTC)
In any case such information is not independently verifiable by Wikipedia standards. --Bridgecross 16:56, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Current Events

Updated information regarding the Airbus A380 Visit. Pratt and Whitney is not the only player in the development of the engine. Hamilton Sundstrand also has designed allot of the subsystems of the Airbus A380. Hamilton Sundstrand is also located right across form the main passanger terminal. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:00, 13 November 2007 (UTC) This should be clarifed and state United Technologies divisions.

Keep an eye out for updates on the closing of Terminal B, which may be scheduled for July 1Engelalber (talk) 01:40, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Superfund Site?

This airport is listed as one of the List of Superfund sites, but there is no mention within the article of even a potential contamination at the site. Why is it included in the list? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:02, 11 July 2008 (UTC)

Continental Mainline

I dont think Continental even has Seasonal Mainline now.. Delta, NW, US Airways, United, and Southwest, have taken all the mainline. They may bring it back, but for the time bieng, as my research shows, no more CO mainline for now. Just be happy Delta/NW operated 9 mainline Dest. :-) Tofutwitch11 (talk) 17:02, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

I have removed CO mainline, i don't see it returning any time now. I'm still seeing Continental departing from Gates A1 and A3 on their website. Snoozlepet (talk) 04:02, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

US Air Seasonal Service to PHX

I do not believe US Air offers any non-stop service between BDL and PHX. Can someone check on this because I thought this flight was completely discontinued in October of 2008. (talk) 17:05, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Delta/Northwest Merger & Gate Assignments

During the night of 2/3 March 2009, Northwest vacated its gates and ticket counters. The local spotters' mailing list reports that gates A5/A7 are now officially "vacant". As I'm not able to independently verify this information, I've resisted the urge to edit the article...but I'd say that the Northwest gate assignments and Delta's expected assumption of a Continental gate mentioned in the article are now very suspect.

They will be taken by American Airlines when they move to terminal A east Concourse (Tofutwitch11 (talk) 19:15, 25 September 2009 (UTC))


Hi, I changed the airlines/destinations into a chart, i think it looks better than it was beafore, and that is how most airports have it now, i was wondering how you guys liked it. Leave a response and let me know. I think it looks much better. Thanks (Tofutwitch11 (talk) 19:13, 25 September 2009 (UTC))

WP:AIRPORTS guidelines is to use that table format. Snoozlepet (talk) 16:34, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Ok well it was not in a chart for a long (Tofutwitch11 (talk) 19:16, 1 October 2009 (UTC))

Most airport articles uses the table format. Snoozlepet (talk) 06:00, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

International Flights

The article has an unattributed statement about NWA offering a flight to Amsterdam:

In the next year or so, Northwest Airlines will begin the international flight to Amsterdam (AMS). These flights will be operated with Northwest's Boeing 757-200 aircraft. These aircraft will be retrofitted with winglets. The specifics of the flights are not yet known.

At this point, I believe this to be speculation. There is no source for it, and a search on NWA's website and did not find any reference.

NWA's website has the announcement and it is fouind on the main page of the website announcing new service from Detroit to Dusseldorf and Belgium and Hartford to Amsterdam. Bucs2004 05:25, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

Well, I think NWA started and then discontinued the flight to Amsterdam, because it is not listed under destinations in the article, however, it is possible that the destinations list is out of date. (talk) 03:21, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

NWA did have a flight from BDL to Amsterdam. However, this was cancelled.

The map under Airlines and destinations is out of date. Should somebody put it up for speedy deletion? (talk) 21:32, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Northwest (now Delta) is going to restart service again. This page and the Northwest page say so. (talk) 02:30, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

They have again canlelled it beacuase of the current economic state, they said that if the economy improved, they would consider recontinuing service. (Tofutwitch11 (talk) 19:12, 23 September 2009 (UTC))

Previous Destinations

Why can other airport aritcles on Wikipedia contain the history of previous destinations such as TF Green in Providence, RI, Rochester International in Rochester, NY, and Pittsburgh International in Pittsburgh. But the the article on Bradley International Airport cannot have this section? What makes the article on Bradley airport so special that it cannot have a section on service history that includes previous destinations but other airport articles can have this section?

The airlines below formerly offered service to cities that other airlines currently offer service from Bradley Airport. The airlines and cities are listed below.

Per longstanding editor consensus at WP:AIRPORTS, former routes are not listed in airport articles. However, they do remain in airline destinations. (talk) 20:31, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

American to London (LHR)

There's been no announcement about AA service to LHR.

No confirmation or source provided.

Removed as, at best, original research.

Delta/Northwest Destination Swaps

Delta and Northwest have been doing many destination swaps. EX: NWA=BDL-PBI (Ends Nov.20) They give it to Delta starting Nov.21. EX: DEL=BDL-RSW (Ends January 4) They give it to Northwest on January 5. I find this annoying. Bear with us and make changes as needed.

Tofutwitch11 (talk) 02:57, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

This is all part of the route demand and yes you will see Delta/Northwest routes being swapped. This is all part of their merger being completed. Snoozlepet (talk) 05:17, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

delta fort lauderdale service

I believe this service is still seasonal.
