My friend applied for a position at Air Wisconsin at RSW and was called for an interview. He was aking what kind of operation they would have at RSW. He was told to go to the UAX ticket counter. It got me to wondering how many flights a day does Air Wisconsin have out of RSW. I only saw one morning departure, Do they handle mainline too?

Ok United.com is not going to tell me if mainline or Air Wiconsin works certain flights....LOL. Again I am only seeing one Air Wisconsin flight a day. Do they handle any other airlines or just that one flight a day?

Looks like United flys nonstop to just Dulles and O'hare-- Can't figure which one of those routes would be operated by Air Wisconsin, probably Dulles though.

Thanks! My friend is just wondering if he is only going to be working that 1 flight a day. I wonder if Air Wisconsin handles US or any other carrier?

Exactly... UA contracts with ZW to ground handle the Shuttle America flight.

Does ZW operate any US Express services out of the airport?

Thats what I would like to know. My friend is a little worried to be there for 1 flight a day. What happens if they cut the onle flight a day. They have to handle something else as well. I cant imagine that would be it. Does US have there own ground and CSA's crew at RSW?

US is 100% mainline at RSW (service to CLT, PHL, DCA).

Assuming the merger happens and assuming that UAs work rules go into effect ZW would loose the RSW contract as all year round UA mainline flights have to be handled by UA Employees. Actually a good follow up question would be does CO have its own staff there...they do have mainline service at the airport as well as ExpressJet.

I would think so. CO flies 757s from EWR into RSW.

Yeah this sounds like bad news. It sucks because he has wanted to get into the airline industry for a long time, but this doesn't sound good.

Possibly it would depend on whether ZW has any other contracts at RSW...I have no idea who else they handle if anyone there. It never hurts to interview and ask what if questions...

This is true. I cant imagine what else ZW would handle there if US is mainline, they definetly dont handle B6, FL, or WN. I guess he could use it for the flight benefits for a couple of months until he gets let go. Ofcourse with only one flight a day and its not even on ZW metal they probably dont have any flight benefits....

CO does its own handling both above and below the wing at RSW. I'm sure the merger will bring the existing UA ops under CO's roof on the C concourse. CO holds the leases on C1/3/5, and those gates could probably absorb UA's operations for most of the year.

Seems like the most likely choice. Will RSW-ORD be brought back on 757s at least seasonally?

I don't know why the merger would affect RSW-ORD that much. UA has cut back a ton in RSW in recent years - I suspect WN is part of the reason, but I don't know that WN alone accounts from the drop to a solid schedule of widebodies and 75s in season to no mainline for much (all?) of the year.

One thing is that on Sa, Su they have two flights daily to RSW and IAD is seasonal winter service. I am suprised on how much they cut back they had a TED plane going there last spring break and I was so happy to fly mainline to RSW (and my first and last time on TED) they should bring back mainline but with all the LCC on the route it would diffucult.

Don't forget NK and FL. Both get up to 3 daily on ORD/MDW-RSW. I could see UA flying mainline ORD-RSW on the weekends though, much like they did with MIA this past winter.

UAX has that one daily flight, an E170 operated by S5.

I know during the winter they also get mainline A320's into RSW.

ZW's contract allows mainline for up to 6 months a year I believe, before the station has to become mainline.

ZW only does ground handling for United Express. Before the NW/DL merger they also ground handled for NW at 20 something stations.

What kind of operation UA has at RSW?
The correct answer is ALMOST NON-EXISTING.

In the summer, their sched is one, maybe two departures a day.
In season, its closer to six. They just about gave up on the ORD route since WN showed up at RSW a few years back with their flights and connections to MDW.
They do fly RSW-IAD in the winter with RJ's....or at least did a couple of years ago.

Maybe you're going to take over for CO........who knows what UAL has up their sleeve.

Unfortunately, you are way too generous. Yearround, regardless of season, UA only has one flight out of RSW Monday-Friday, an S5 E70 to ORD. In the summer on the weekends, it's still only one flight day to ORD. In the winter on the weekends, there are 2 E70s to ORD and 1 E70 to IAD. So UA in RSW is basically one flight for the entire year besides the weekends in the winter.
