Hello All,
I was wondering with B6 getting their E-190's, DL stating that it will convert more 757's to the Song product, with UA most likely making most of their A-320's TED aircraft, and with WN's longtime success, where will these airines seek to go next? B6 will clearly be able to go into smaller markets with their E-190's. If WN takes orders for more B-737's surely they will expand. However I see a slightly less of an expansion for Song and TED because of their mainline ties. Also feel free to talk about FL and F9. I just was wondering about this because there seems to be so much more potential with Song,TED,and B6, not so much WN as they already pretty much serve most major cities in the US or their surrounding area.

Regards from BDL,
DeltaGuy767

Personaly for TED, I think that UA should should make all of their Airbus aircraft (320/319) into the TED brand, and just have the Boeing's as UA! Also add more airbus' to replace the older 737's! But one problem, lack of money!

Song need to receive more 752's, I wonder if they will ever get 737-900ER's or 787's!

I think WN won't stop until they have a hub at every US city!  Wink

Jetblue are to receive 100 EMB-190's, so they have a pretty good expansion comming up!

I'm guessing Song will connect the dots on its existing routes, perhaps including some of the following:

SFO-FLL
SFO-TPA
SEA-FLL
SEA-MCO
BDL-LAS
BOS-AUA
JFK- Carribbean, Mexico

It would also be great to see some routes launched from new cities including:

PHX-JFK
SAN-JFK
PDX-JFK
DFW-JFK
DFW-BOS
DFW-FLL
DFW-MCO

My main hope is for DAB service!!! But otherwise I think someday we will see the day when DL just converts its whole product to the Song product and just keeps the DL name and a first class cabin...

I agree! Maybe expansion to Canada, codesharing with WestJet?? same for B6??

I believe UAL said the wont convert any more A320's to TED. They are tapped out plane wise.

TED will expand to Mexico, and the Caribbean, just my guess. Once the BK process ends I bet they will take delivery of their remaining Airbuses.

That wont happen. There is more cost involved with Over water planes, and so forth.

Why not, I'm sure JetBlue could fill up a E190 on a daily flight from JFK!

Anyone know where JetBlue plans to base the E190's? Any at EWR?

I wouldn't be suprised if WN entered the Canadian maket themselves, but I doubt if B6 or WN would codeshare with WestJet!

Would WestJet ever start ops from a city in the US?

Well, David Neelman (sp?) was involved with WestJet, thats the only reason why I say and also WestJet was initially modeled after SW. Also, that way neither airline would have to make a significant investment in flying to Canada.


And, if i understand what you are asking, Westjet currently serves FLL, LAX and various other US cities.

What do you mean though? like intra-US flights? because that's not legal (cabbotage) but if you mean fly to 5 or 6 canadian cities then I could definately see that from say LAX, SFO, LAS, and MIA.

I mean....
For WestJet to start up a base at (lets say SAN) and then starting flights to cities like JFK,EWR,MCO,MIA,MSY,ORD,BOS,BWI.... along with flying to YYZ,YVR,YUL.....

I think that helps  Wink

OK OK, Gotcha, I'm a little slow today. Yeah, that's not legal as no foreign airline can operate a revenue flight between two US cities (without special permission). Same situation if AS or UA wanted to start a hub in say, YVR... just cant happen. I think this is one of the reasons you don't see Virgin America up and opperating right now.

I think in terms of B6 you'll see a lot of connecting the dots ... JFK-BOS, BOS-BUF, BOS-IAD, BOS-PBI, BOS-SJU, BUF-MCO, BUF-TPA, SYR-BOS .. stuff like that.

I'd love B6 to start a mexican route, maybe send an e190 JFK-RSW-CUN. The gate we use at RSW is international already and we could have pax connect there from BOS JFK and EWR pretty easily.

I'd LOVE most of all to see B6 begin JFK-EYW, though I dont think its feasible with the 190.

I think there is a special freedom they need to operate the first flight, but most governments allow it no problem. But, it could not carry local traffic.

Ehtopian flies Ethiopia to JFK to IAD, for example. People can go Ethiopia to JFK or Ethiopia to IAD after stopping in JFK, but you cannot fly Ethopian from JFK to IAD.

Probably might not happen since they already serve DEN but it might be a possibility.

For B6 well with the 190's can't say where they will deploy them all. Like FA4B6 said, a lot of that stuff probably.

I will post more later.

I thought that Song and TED were just knocking off mainline routes of their parents? B6 and WN rarely compete, so I would say next would be:

B6 to Tucson
WN to Williams, Chandler, AZ from Salt Lake City & LAX

And I know I would be wrong.

What are the chances of SONG using other aircraft besides the 752?
It kinda limits their choices of airports does it not?

With jetBlue set to get the Jungle Jets, they have a much bigger bucket of opportunity to draw from....

I suspect that B6 will initially deploy the EMB-190s to their (required) upstate New York destinations, allowing increased frequencies on those short flights. After that it will be connecting the dots, mostly north-south on the coasts. Residents of smaller cities will be disappointed because there is still lower hanging fruit in the big cities.

Actually, this is entirely contrary to WN's expansion and profitability strategy. One of the reasons WN is profitable is because it only flies to cities that have the capability of filling its planes. Today, it's been said that if you can't fill 10 737s a day, you won't be getting WN service (I think this has been exaggerated, but you get the picture). WN hasn't been expanding to places like ICT, ABI, MLN, or PNS ... they've expanded to PHL, ORF, PIT, and BDL.

WN only serves 60 cities, compared to 200+ from most of the majors. You won't see them in "every city" anytime soon.

Here's a United press release from earlier this year detailing Ted's last expansion. They converted another nine A320s to Ted to provide the expanded service.

DL flies that 1X weekly FLL-ATL-FLL (competeing with themselves might I add as they have mainline flights at the same time)...they don't even sell meald on those flights...just snacks!
