DIA’s massive new lighted welcome sign on Peña Boulevard will cost twice as much for airport - The Denver Post


I hope this goes forward. It will look very attractive to people driving on a Peña Boulevard.


#189

This is allready there…


#190

United is also starting service to London on a 787. And southwest is starting service to Hawaii.


#191

That’s new information for me. Wow haha I had no ide that was happening.


#192

Really? I’m blind then.


#193

True, the sign is up and made of LED poles for a dynamic display, however they are just starting to test it. Hopefully it will all work out and the $14.5 million went to good use.


#194

From Denver? I doubt it.


#195

Yeah I doubt they will go from Denver. Probably from like SJC or ONT or other airports in CA.


#196

It’s possible from Denver. The flight is 7 hours, but Norwegian does trans-Atlantic flights on B738 everyday. Definitely not Ontario though, no demand for it.


#197

Hmm… I was thinking of WN focus cities.


#198

I think the cities they’ll start service are Las Vegas, Oakland, Phoenix, Denver, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Jose.


#199

Ontario I could see a slight (although very small) possibility for. A la China Airlines, WN could use ONT as an LAX overfill airport that is convenient for a different type of market (think places that are closer to ONT than LAX, especially factoring in traffic).

Denver, although it definitely has the connection possibilities and demand for it, doesn’t seem very likely with the 737. Considering that this flight would be slightly longer than Norwegian’s EDI-SWF, and that this flight would have more bags (bags fly free!), worse conditions (Hawaii is hot and Denver is high), it doesn’t seem all that feasible for a flight from DEN-HNL. Take LAX-HNL, for example on Delta. Their 737-900ERs end up going out with payload restrictions based on the fuel load, despite the fact that they have fewer seats per square foot (meaning less weight from passengers) and less fuel required (LAX-HNL is much shorter than DEN-HNL). If Delta can’t make it fly full, I don’t think Southwest could.

I dont think they will do service in LA because there are already many hawaii flights. The Max could defenitly do the route from Denver to Hawaii so I still think they will do it


#201

This is huge for Denver:


You can talk more about it here:


#202

This just might be the best thing I’ve heard all day! Now I have to find ways to calm down lol.


#203

Ha ha! I wonder if they’re adding more intl. gates?
