How does DL and AirTran perform - in terms of O&D customers - on routes from ATL to places in AL, MS and LA? Also, what about O&D on routes within GA and to NW FL, e.g. Ft Walton Beach, Penescola, etc.? Cheers.

I can only speak for DL on the ATL-BHM route, but as would be expected O&D is nearly non-existent due to the close proximity of the two cities, which can be reached in approximately two hours by auto. And with advance purchase fares approaching $200.00 r/t, fighting the airport hassle is just not really an option.

Delta's market share in BHM has steadily declined over the past several years, with WN #1 in passenger boardings, AFAIK. BHM used to see a steady diet of 757's from ATL-BHM every day, but now these are down to a mix of MD-88's and 737-200's. Quite a reduction in available seats...

I expected that. Is it the same case for, say, MGM?

I'm sure there is a lot of O&D on the ATL-MSY route.

I would imagine so, ATL-MGM is only slightly farther than ATL-BHM, and it is served via interstate (I-85). I figure the same would hold true for ATL-HSV as well. ATL-MOB may see some more significant O&D numbers though..

For Pensacola (PNS), the O+D to ATL is relatively low as well. It's about 110-140 (each way) daily depending on the season. However, DL and Airtran offer somewhere between 1300-1600 seats (each way) daily depending on the season. So, O+D traffic makes up only about 10% of the passengers.

The O+D has grown a bit with the arrival of Airtran in 2001. Before Airtran, the O+D was less than 50 passengers.

ATL-HSV is not an easy drive. There is no interstate, so you either have to drive I-65 to BHM and across I-20, or take US 72 to CHA and down I-75.

It's not really too bad. Most folks I know take 431 to Anniston then I-20 to ATL. Takes about three hours.

Point is, with DL being the only carrier on the route they tend to grab you by the 'nads and squeeze real hard to get those O&D dollars. That alone pretty much prices them out of the market..

Does AirTran still rely on the subsidies from the Beau Rivage on its
ATL-GPT, TPA-GPT, and FLL-GPT routes?
