Now with the addition of Independence Air, the DC area now has 75 daily nonstop flights to Atlanta from IAD,DCA, and BWI! This is an insane amount of flights. The flights are on Delta, United, AirTran, and Independence. If you miss your flight, wait a couple minutes and catch the next.

can somebody say "knee-jerk"

this reaction just typifies the whole problem with legacy carrier strategy. they have none. they just react. its really tragic because i could see AirTran scaling back at IAD and letting Independence, Delta and United duke it out. Four carriers in that market is a bloodbath

I know DL has hourly nonstops to ATL from both DCA and IAD, as with AirTran out of IAD. This in addition to Indi' almost hourly's out of IAD. I have no clue about BWI, as they are on my $hit list (They are fighting rail mass transit to IAD). They all add up I guess.

I don't see how BWI has anything to do with the Virginia rail system, but eh, who knows. BWI does have a significant advantage in being the easiest to get to without a car.

DL has less frequent service ATL-BWI, but it is on larger planes, even some widebodies.
