OAG Changes 4/1/2010: AA/AC/DL/F9/FL/NK/UA/WN/YX

Posted (4 years 7 months 3 weeks 3 days 12 hours ago) and read 10915 times:

This compares what is for sale THIS WEEK for the stated period versus what was for sale LAST WEEK...It does NOT compare to last year or now.

How to read:
ABE-MDT 3>2 APR means a reduction in one roundtrip from 3 to 2 for April only
ABE-MDT 3.8>2.7 APR-JUN This is the raw format of the data which sometimes I'm too lazy to retype. It means that over a month they were averaging a little less than 4 trips per day and now it's a little less than 3 per day. So, basically they cancelled 8 flights per week or so. Airlines are doing A LOT of non-daily ops now, so these fractions are pervasive.
ABE-MDT 4>6 MAY- means an increase from 4 to 6 roundtrips starting in May and continuing
ABE-MDT 4>6 MAY-JUN, 5>6 JUL means the change is only for the stated period May to June and then a different change for July in the same route

Please take it easy on any typos, there was a lot to type...

Before people get too excited, I have to admit the YX and F9 change are for April Fools Day. I thought it would be enjoyable to imagine people thinking the YX code had been eliminated in advance of the branding announcement.

They called it a "boutique" product on their blog. I have said for years that WN has been very focused on hurting the other LCCs. If you look back, they added IAD when B6 and FL rushed in to fill the void from Independence Air's demise. IMHO, now that UA has retaken the hub and the LCCs never gained any traction, there is no reason for WN to be there any more. I expect they could even close it. If they get into DCA, they will definitely close it IMHO.

Why cut flights if they go out full...I'm sure if they cut capcity and I expect B6 to cut capacity now that they will be entering the DCA market then it will end up being closed and I can see B6 cutting all flights with the exceptions of LGB and OAK or all since those are outside the perimeter rule.

B6 peaked at 24 flights in IAD and now they are at 15. I think B6 could leave there completely if they take too many more lumps on IAD financial performance.

There are two ways to lose money. Empty plane and full plane of people paying nothing. The latter is probably the LCC's problem at IAD, but I haven't looked at the loads. Transcon has been unprofitable for a while and clearly B6 has sucked at JFK-IAD which will probably be a single flight before long. It's hard to imagine B6 flying BOS-IAD/DCA/BWI for very long. I'd think DCA would eventually replace IAD, but who knows.

I am of the oppinion that B6 would shift BWI to DCA... WN will lever Abandon that route and it would need to get really bad for FL to. B6 could let them fight it out and opt for the airport of choice, DCA.



Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

I definitely wouldn't expect that. FL is the weakest carrier in that market and B6 has the smallest aircraft and thus the best chance of filling the plane up for prices above ZERO. B6 is much stronger in BOS now than you are giving them credit. They have a formidable network there. For domestic I would argue they have the best portfolio of non-stop routes now at BOS. That's going to get them passenger loyalty. In BWI WN has that mantle. FL is neither fish nor foul in the market. They are a distant second in BWI and god knows what in BOS. The only advantage they have is history in the route, but that will continue to ebb as time goes on. History and tradition says FL will lose unless B6 decides to no longer focus on BOS which won't happen.

Also, DCA/IAD are much more overlapping than BWI/DCA. It's a hideous drive from NoVA and DC to BWI. People do it, but the train even sucks in that it doesn't go directly to the terminal in BWI. IAD-DCA is an easy 25 minute drive outside rush hour. BWI is an hour from DCA at the best of times and can take forever at rush hour. Also, they are building that subway line to IAD which will make it even more of a single market with DCA.

FL is very strong on the bos-bwi shuttle. It is always packed and is one of the top routes in the company. They have the right sized plane to fly it and have a loyal following on it. If anything it could stand one more flight in each direction just to have a tad more choice. FL might be a second in BWI but its not like southwest is 90percent and FL is 10 percent. If anything its growing there which means an uptick of use of FL. I doubt FL will lose when they have been doing this route before any of the two mentioned. They responded with dedicated check in counters, dedicated gates at BOS and BWI(yes it changes but not to often).

Probably, but WN does well on cargo everywhere. That's a secret to their profits that the other airlines haven't noticed.

I sense you work for FL. I'm guessing you haven't seen the financial results since the war broke out. There's no way it's making money right now. Just looking at some random dates in May at fl.com its $78 roundtrip. That doesn't even cover fuel.

Quoting Atlwest1 (Reply 9):
It is always packed

Packed x $78 roundtrip = much less than the cost to fly the plane.

It costs $160-180 roundtrip for them to breakeven. It's a disaster. My guess is that FL will cut frequency in the next 12 months and slowly get pushed out.

Already cutting back the LAX expansion they just announced.

No matter how hard DL ties at LAX, it seems as if they can't get a "foot in".....lets see what the JV with V.Australia brings...

DL is doing a bit better in the New York Area as well-but competition is heating up.

Remeber to though BOS-BWI isnt just Bos bwi it is also used by people to connect to other parts of the FL network. I mean it just seems like any route that FL is flying people think oh there done for and they will be pushed out perchance this wont be the case? Also keep in mind the costs for FL are lower then WN and much lower then JB so this probably gives them an advantage plus offering a bizclass where if you need to check bags its free. Not to mention FREE gate check of bags and the knowledge of being the first on the route.

I'm hoping this will be one of the new A320's....

That will give ACY-MCO close to 700 daily seats between NK and FL.. thats pretty good for an airport as small as ACY.

It may be going down in frequency, but it's going to be all mainline with three B752s.

Was that in the OAG? last I heard (earlier this week) was that in the fall (low/shoulder season) that it would run less than daily. But I wouldn't be surprised to see them use that aircraft for a better performing route out of CLT

Glad to see DL's upping ROC a frequency to ATL in the summer. They've already scheduled the regular summer MSP nonstop, will be curious to see if the up seasonal DTW capacity as NW did in the past.

Quoting enilria (Reply 8):
Also, DCA/IAD are much more overlapping than BWI/DCA. It's a hideous drive from NoVA and DC to BWI. People do it, but the train even sucks in that it doesn't go directly to the terminal in BWI. IAD-DCA is an easy 25 minute drive outside rush hour. BWI is an hour from DCA at the best of times and can take forever at rush hour. Also, they are building that subway line to IAD which will make it even more of a single market with DCA.

The drive from downtown DC on east from BWI is not "hideous;" in good traffic it's 40 minutes, a bit less than the drive to IAD. Why anyone would drive fom DCA to BWI I have no idea; both DCA and IAD are much more convenient to NoVa. Maybe if the fare was substantially less.

As our discussions have established in exhaustive detail, the Metro won't be a great option to IAD. There will be 19 stops between downtown and the airport. It'll be an hour at least, and the trains will be packed with people for the stops along the way--Tysons and Reston are big business centers of their own. Not fun for schlepping suitcases. It probably will be a one-seat ride, as we established in our last discussion, but there's no happy option for squeezing another line into downtown, and delays will probably be common.

FL is very strong on the bos-bwi shuttle.

I sense you work for FL. I'm guessing you haven't seen the financial results since the war broke out. There's no way it's making money right now. Just looking at some random dates in May at fl.com its $78 roundtrip. That doesn't even cover fuel.

3 of my co-workers just paid $338.00/person r/t on BOS-BWI-BOS. So there are instances where the fares are pretty high given the route length.

LAX-IND 4/WK>1 AUG-

262 pax/day each way between IND-LAX (according to the latest IND Year In Review) and the route can't support a daily nonstop. Though one can wonder how many pax on that route were/are also from the catchment areas of CVG, FWA, EVV, etc; and if DL is cutting it to save LAX-CVG. Still, there's most likely a lot of locals on the route given the size of the Indianapolis area.

But DL can't make it work. FL can't make it work. WN tried it in the past and couldn't make it work. What's wrong with this picture?

I think you're misreading this one. DL has had this as 4x weekly in the offseason, but now it's going up to 1 daily year-round.

BTW, one of the big issues in IND is the expensive terminal they just built.
