Ft. Lauderdale is doing very good this week. Good for them.

Would an Orlando (MCO) - SDQ route be a viable route (AA or NK) by any chance?

Im prety sure 4 weekly MCO-sdq flights could work out, the Dominican community in Central Florida is growing and right now the fares between MCO and SDQ are ridicoulously high- $525.oo roudtrip on AA via MIA. Im kind of surprised AA hasnt tried this route yet, I believe they operate a direct flight via SJU.

Oh great... This route will only cater to planeloads of screaming lap children. Not a pleasant run for the crews at all.

Flybyguy,

Thats not a nice thing to say. I am sure most Spirit crew wont mind a few lap children here and there. They are a great group.

I think this is only the beginning! I'd expect to see more transcons to FLL once the Airbus comes in and maybe the "return" of DTW. also, expect an expansion to the Caribbean, but thats a no brainer. FLL was always called a hub for NK, but now, with connection oppurtunities to CUN and SDQ and more coming, FLL has truely become a hub for them.

Once they get some Airbus, do you think that they could fly some of the MD88s to TPA and MCO to get some passengers to the Caribbean?
Any chance on NK going public?

Flybyguy, you gave me a good laugh! It's true, though.
