AIRLINES' SCHEDULE PLANS

This roundup shows changes in domestic flying by the 10 largest airlines and their regional affiliates for October 2008 compared with October 2007. The information reflects what airlines filed with OAG-Official Airline Guide as of May 26. This data may change because not all airlines have finalized their fall schedules.

Shown are the percentage changes in domestic seats and flights, some of the airports that show reductions of 10% or more in seats, and airports served in October 2007 but not in October 2008. Some losses may be seasonal or not permanent.

Most airline are decreasing 10 to 20% of capacity, especially 733 & 735 airplanes at UA & CO. Las Vegas, Florida and Hawaii are getting huge 25% decreases from some airlines. Spirit Air in FLL is decreasing FL capacity by one third. Florida will recover some capacity in the late fall before Thanksgiving and Christmas. The parking of older airplanes is good taking around 200 airplanes out of the domestic skies. IF AA would park 150 MD-80 the decrease would be complete.

Just wondering, but if these airlines wanted to cut capacity and fuel costs by 10-20%, why not do something different like, parked their aircraft one day a week (Tues for instance) and cut flying seriously during the non-holidays days of a holiday weekend.
