Alot of news for ORD this week. Eastern will contract it's 777F to run Asia routes for Flexport. Also Swoop will start Canadian service in late May to ORD. This adds to the new service to Canada by Flair airlines.

Also ORD came in second for 2021 aircraft movements after ATL. ORD did lead after May 2021 but had lower movements Jan-Apr and could not make up the numbers.

Saudia to launch service to Chicago from either Riyadh or Jeddah (not specified) sometime in 2022. An interesting addition.

This is interesting. . . I was just talking with a friend of mine last night who is looking at getting a 3 month visa to SA so he can do his Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and visit with friends/family that live there. . . I wonder if SA has been opening up more to outside tourism as I would find it a tough sell that they have that many pilgrimage or business passengers (thinking Houston would be the more logical destination) to support such a route. . .

I know that is the definite goal of the Saudi government. I can't imagine to many Americans rushing to KSA. There are enough Muslims around Chicago probably that would utilize it for pilgrimage trips or use it as an alternative to the other Gulf airlines for MENA/Africa/South Asia.

This could be part of the planned growth by the government to grow Saudia into another Emirates style airline. They already have run cargo flights to ORD and ran a passenger flight schedule back in 2020 for several months.

For reference, ATL was #1 in 2019 with 110,531,300 and O'hare was #6 at 84,372,618.

#50 in 2019 was Narita with 44,340,847, which would have been good enough for #6 this year. Still a very different environment that we're in.

We got a lot of climbing to do to get back to #1, lol. Honestly, may not be achievable anymore, and we really haven't been competitive with Atlanta in terms of passenger numbers for many years. Hopefully as the Modernization Plan reaches completion, we can at least get back to a solid #2 spot.

Well O'Hare has to split flights with Midway. Atlanta has one single big airport.

Because Delta uses Atlanta as its only real mega-midcontinental hub. Detroit/Minneapolis play ancillary roles but nothing compared to the division that true mega-hubs in Dallas/Chicago divide work for American Airlines or that Denver/Chicago do for United.

Mega-airports like LAX, NYC, SFO, Miami, etc. will always be huge, especially for connecting international traffic but they will never be used primarily as spoke hubs to connect the nation's interior the same way mid-continent hubs are.

A lot of it is cargo and international freight. Airports have limited capacity, and O’Hare is extremely desirable for passenger, cargo and international freight.

While in the Southeast, Atlanta handles most of the regional passenger flights, and Miami handles most of the cargo and freight.

O'Hare Airport ‘People Mover' Passenger Trains Return to 24-Hour Service
https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/loca...rvice/2809227/

Shuttle buses will still provide 24-hour service through May 1... Does anyone know if that includes rental car shuttles for Hertz, Enterprise? The traffic chaos could be reduced even if just slightly, if the number of buses/shuttles around the terminals were reduced. And they should be with the ATS now providing direct access to the consolidated rental car intermodal facility.
