This one probably is in preparation for the NW merger. Still plenty of connectivity between Green Bay Packer-land and DTW (Lions) or MSP (Vikings)

Delta has dropped IAH-JFK so many times...CO is leaving the market as well so I guess B6 has the market to themselves (from HOU).

I am surprised to see this flight go, but I dont see MQ doubling frequency or even adding one flight really. Hopefully they will as they are now the only airline flying MIA-TLH but DL is still flying FLL-TLH.

Is the route being converted to AX? That will at least increase seats by about 25%.

Gosh I hope that's true. It was nice to finally have jet service to Key West. I can't imagine it wasn't a money maker. I don't think I've ever been on a flight with more than 2 or 3 empty seats. And I don't think I ever got a flight for less than $260 round trip for the short hop.

So, that means that there is no nonstop from MCO to EYW? Gulfstream is gone too.

JetBlue seems to be picking at routes (such as adding them or increasing frequency) that other airlines are dropping - JFKSJU, MCOSJU, RICMCO, IADPBI, HPNMCO, HPNFLL, HPNPBI - come to mind. Hopefully JetBlue will apply the same philosophy to JFKHOU and add a fourth frequency. The flights have been doing rather well, even with the competition from DL/CO to IAH. Imagine how much better they could do with less competition...

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

I think that is nearly the same story for TOL & LAN, although I they are least keeping G4.

A lot of the smaller spokes are getting hacked off of the CLE & CVG hubs, and a lot of these weren't connected to any other hub.

At least all of the DL cuts in the Midwest will be right back in the network within 6 months since they all have ample NW service to DTW & MSP.

I believe that DL still flies to EYW from ATL...overnights on the island were always great.

GRB isn't that big a deal really. Remember ATW is only a half hour down the road, and I don't believe they are losing service. ATW seems to be growing slightly at the expense of GRB.

Is MIA-JFK still being flown by DL?

Well, this leaves DL just clinging to TLH-FLL, but I'm guessing even that routes days are numbered. If AA wanted to, they could probably add another flight or two to TLH-MIA and knock DL off the FLL-TLH as well.

Yes. 3x MD88 by November.

I don't think FLL-TLH would be left without service.

I expect AA to double MIA-TLH to 4x daily by November.

Count me in as surprised that DL would cancel MIA-TLH. I thought that if any route is the perfect stage length/revenue spectrum for a successful RJ route (just over an hour, high-yield business travelers), it would be this route. Could it be that AA simply beat them in head-to-head competition because a lot of business travelers based in Miami have frequent flier loyalty to AA?

I would tend to say so. Most of the traffic going between South Florida and TLH is originating in South Florida. DL's frequent flyer base in South Florida has eroded away, while AA's remains robust.

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 18):

In times of lower fuel, I would agree with you, but now I'm not so sure. If AA does add more flights to MIA, it could be enough to kill the FLL service. I guess Gulfstream could step in as they did in the case of TLH-PBI.

Growing slightly with G4, but not really growing alot. G4 moved because it costs more to fly to GRB than ATW, and I think the airlines are cutting more service because of that, and they have similar service to ATW.

Currently DL is running 3xdaily(except Saturday's) on the TLH-MIA/FLL/TPA runs but after 2Sep. it's reduced to 2xdaily for the above mentioned as well as 2xdaily TLH-MCO which is what they are running now.


25 Syncmaster : Won't even take that long, I'm sure they are already codesharing on these flights. I like, like you, feel a lot of the cuts in the Midwest are due to
26 ScottB : Actually, no, they haven't. B6 gets slaughtered by CO in terms of market share and revenue premium. B6 manages 11% of the Houston-NYC market at avera
27 AVLAirlineFreq : I'm surprised by that if that's the case. Mid-October is when seasonal visitation to EYW begins to increase for the winter. August and September are
28 RampGuy : You better check DeltaTerm again. JFK-IAH is still bookable well into October and even as far as December.
29 LAxintl : Check next week -- takes a little time for changes to get loaded
30 CIDFlyer : Yikes, poor GRB has really been hit latetly with cuts (G4, CO & now DL). But, as mentioned above, GRB will be back in the DL system once the merger go
