Effective April 8, 2008, Northwest Airlink (Operated by Compass Airlines) will serve Phoenix to Memphis twice daily instead of the once a day mainline service.


Current Schedule:

NW 296 PHX-MEM 1:20PM

NW 295 MEM-PHX 9:55AM


New Schedule:

NW 1922 PHX-MEM 8:00AM
NW 1920 PHX-MEM 12:30PM

NW 1923 MEM-PHX 9:35AM
NW 1921 MEM-PHX 7:20PM


I discovered this while looking up airfare on nwa.com

Compass would indicate the ERJ-175 then?

Didn't they use an A319 on this route? If they did its a nice little capcity upgrade(152 seats daily as opposed to 124).

Correct.

As of now, the flight fluctuates between a 319 and 320.

This is as of Monday, February 11. I realize that some cities may be left out, but I tried to get it as complete as possible. Some cities that are served currently are seasonal or Saturday only, or both, such as CZM. SFO is served seasonally in the summertime. You will see from time to time the reinstatement of mainline on some routes currently Airlink.

LAX, LAS, MSP, DTW, VPS, CUN, CZM, IND, MKE, ORD, LGA, DCA, DEN, SEA, BTR, MSY, LIT, DFW, TPA, MIA, FLL, MCO, ATL, BHM, SJU, BNA, STL, OKC, MCI, MBJ, EWR, CMH, OMA, SAT, AMS, and the soon to be gone PHX.

In addition to COERJ145's explanation, NW can now offer more frequency in this market, thus making it more attractive to the business customer.

More frequencies are more attractive to all customers. Not just business customers. For me if I can avoid a 7am flight and catch a 1pm flight I'm happy. I'm not a morning person.  Smile. I'm no business traveler but I'd like the choice of being able to select the 7am or the 1pm. Of course those flight times are hypothetical.

That would really be nice! They need something more than just once a day service to MSP!

True but are you willing to pay $500 for the walk-up that the business customer pays? That's the big difference.

Huh? I don't think he said anything about walk up prices, just times in general when buying. He just was stating how some people like different times. Business people use the 7am more than the 1pm. Other non-morning people like Indy probably use the 1pm more for leisure.

I have traveled extremely short notice on personal trips. I even had to pay $1800 for international Y because it was 24 hour notice. Usually when I travel for business its planned out a bit and we still get good fares. I've never walked up to the counter to buy a ticket to leave that moment. I wonder how many people actually do that. My guess would be very few. And of those that do I'm betting most are traveling because of personal emergencies.

I'm not disagreeing that using two frequencies as opposed to one will attract all customers, as this is true. However, the overall decision behind this method, as asked by Indy earlier, was to point out the attractiveness to the business customer in particular. The market segmentation by adding frequencies has been expanded to more business customers, thereby allowing NW to charge more for inelastic demand; i.e. the business customer.

I just checked on our internal website (uses PARS), and MHT-DTW shows mainline through July. That might change, of course, but as of now it's DC9's & Airbii......

That's absolutely correct currently.

Since the original question from N801NW was about MHT-DTW going 2x daily with the E75, I was looking at MHT's schedule from the 2/14 change onward.
