That's pretty impressive utilization there. I'm amazed that they can get 6 legs out of some of the a/c even with 4 of them doing at least one transcon run. Do they have a 6th a/c sitting around as a spare, as I hate to imagine what would happen if one of their a/c went tech.

Agreed, their utilization is very efficient, but I also wonder what happens during OSO? My friend was flying to FLL one day on SX and the plane had a MX problem, so they had to wait for about 4+ hours while the other plane completed a roundtrip to another city before they could fly it to FLL.

These are the perils of trying to squeeze more juice out of the orange.
