Do you think CLT will receive the BOS addition? I was surprised that RDU and CLT didn't get BOS off the bat like Pittsburgh...although, CLT is tight with gate space. RDU, I don't even know about that airport.

Quoting SQ452 (Reply 5): I did DL about a year ago in March, was pretty empty both ways. I don't see one of these other carriers lasting when B6 moves in.
I don't know...BOS-RDU has a fair amont of business travellers on it, with AA offering 8x daily and DL 4x daily service, so both can cater to the frequency. B6 will only have one flight a day, so the most I could see is DL and AA cutting a frequency or two, but the one flight a day doesn't really cut it for business travellers. The one B6 flight a day should be fine though for leisure travellers and the lower fares B6 offers should cause DL and AA to compete. The BOS-RDU flight is poorly timed for business connections (the return has good times), so I don't really see AA/DL cutting down on flights, especially morning flights between the two cities (allows for a daytrip, as its a 2 hour flight, and both carriers offer the ability to do RDU-BOS-RDU/BOS-RDU-BOS daytrips).
