Shoutout to my home airport, PWM! It’s rare to see many bigger jets fly into there as it’s mostly just Regionals with the exception of Southwest and JetBlue. I’ve always wondered, being a smaller airport, is it more difficult to land a bigger jet there or does not make a difference? I also saw you flew into BOS. I’ve overheard some pilots say this is one of their least favorite airports to land because of it’s size and proximity to the water. Do you notice any of this, or is it just a matter of opinion and preference?
Sorry I just stumbled upon the July schedule now…

Julian,

The size of the airport really does not matter as runways all meet minimum certifications. Smaller airports are actually easier as there are less taxi ways. I have never liked Boston, but that is because I am a Yankees fan and I could never possibly trust a city that would trade Babe Ruth away.

Thanks for the Input! That makes sense actually.
