Airtran applied to the DOT today to obtain authority to fly ATL-CUN, MCO-CUN and TPA-CUN. Service would start in December, with ATL-CUN being daily, and TPA/MCO-CUN occuring once a week.

It'll be interesting to see if DL responds with MCO-CUN or TPA-CUN. No US carrier flies this route, so two US carriers would be allowed.

There's no other carrier besides DL holding authority on ATL-CUN right now? I find that hard to believe.

I always hoped FL would add some soutbound spokes out of TPA or MCO. Once a week isn't much but it's a start.

Of course timing is everything, if those flights leave Florida in the a.m., it's just more point to point.

ummmm...doesn't USA3000 fly ATL-CUN or are they exempt from the "2 carrier rule" for some reason?

DL serves twice daily (3x on the weekends) and AM serves once daily. Each codeshare on each others flights.

Transmeridian flies ATL-CUN twice a week, and yes i think USA3K does also (or did). I beleive they are except because they are not "scheduled" carriers.

I would also expect a SJU announcement from Airtran... and there are 2 more cities..

later

I wonder if BWI and PHL are also possibilities for CUN and even SJU if you say 2 possible cities. BWI only has service to CUN on USA3000 unscheduled i believe and PHL has both US and USA3000.

No, they are not.

BWI is part of WAS, which has scheduled service on both USA 3000 and United Airlines. US Airways applied for IAD-CUN and BWI-CUN last year and was rejected because of this.

PHL has USA 3000 and US Airways.

USA 3000 is not a charter airline. They are a scheduled airline that also operates charters.

Forgot BWI was part of WAS.

USA3000 is a scheduled airline but the services they operate to CUN are charter operations on behalf of Apple Vacations. Do these charter operations still count towards the airline number?

USA3000 has some scheduled flights to CUN, and some public charter flights to CUN. The scheduled flights count towards the two-carrier limit. The public charters (from places like NYC and DTW) don't.

Off the top of my head, U5 holds CUN authority counting toward the two-carrier limit at PHL, PIT, WAS, CMH, CVG, but there might be one or two I'm forgetting.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

All the flights that USA3000 runs to CUN are done in conjunction with Apple Vacations who owns them and other wise there would be no flights. They do sell some of the seats via the USA3000 web site as a way to make certain the flights go out full.
