I don't know why this hasn't come up in my searches, but did anybody else notice that come fall, FL is adding service to MSY and SRQ, in addition to one more daily frequency to both BOS and DCA? I speculate CUN or SJU coming eventually...    And why hasn't FL tried MKE-HOU yet?? Only CO is in the market, and YX did well with this service a few years back before Hurricane Wilma.. Thoughts?

Edit for spelling..

IIRC, there actually was a topic about this earlier, though I won't hold it against you as the search engine is kinda broken at the moment, ithasn't been showing recent posts of any sort.

Cheers!

Is this in response to F9's new CUN service?

The FL vs. F9 vs. WN battle in MKE continues...

Do you have a link to the application? I assume you are talking about schuled service and not charter flights.

FL's route map shows CAK-IND nonstop, but nothing shows up in the schedules. wonder if its a mistake or they have something planned.

Mke to Cun I can definitely see and maybe one or two other mexico destinations with less frequency. Also San Juan would be a hit. They do very well to San Juan from BWI ATL and definitely MCO. What I would like to see is Mexico City, Guadalajara and maybe Los Cabos or PVR. But good developments none the less. I guess that International Arrivals building will actually get a lot of use now. I wonder if there are any plans on making it slightly larger or adding new gates to it?

Here's the filing:

http://www.regulations.gov/search/Re...l#docketDetail?R=DOT-OST-2010-0146

FL wants to start MKE-CUN in April 2011. DL already holds an authority for MKE-CUN as do Sun Country and USA3000.

In order for F9 and FL to serve MKE-CUN, some of those authorities would have to be transferred.

I think their routemap is tied directly to their booking engine. Strangely enough, it's letting you select MBJ, AUA, and a few other Caribbean cities from CRW, but our MCO flight doesn't connect to anything but SJU.

Glitches across the board im thinking.

I checked it and they will sell you a ticket via MKE, but nothing non-stop like the route-map shows. It shows it as an air tran route too, If for some reason they were to attempt that route, I would think it would be a Skywest CRJ.

while we're speaking of Skywest CRJs, CAK could be a great place to channel them through to, to get a few CRJs doing some BWI flights. Places like BTV SYR CRW and GSO

Maybe they could use CRW as a bridge station too. Service to MKE and BWI might be the closest thing to ATL we could possibly ask for in terms of connectivity.

If they are going to do another round of MKE RJ routes I think we will see the next batch include some of:
CMH, DAY, BUF, ROC, MEM and perhaps look at a place like LIT with MKE CRJs and Florida service ala DSM.

That's about right, I think, and of the existing stations I'd add DTW and perhaps MCI to the list. In terms of new stations, in addition to LIT, I think they might look at TUL, OKC, SDF, and BNA.

I wouldnt think they'd add any more RJ routes. I dont see how skywest could be making money as is. Unless of course they're in a situation where they're stuck with the planes and it makes more sense to fly them around and get any revenue they can vs none.

That'll kill yields on the route - for both carriers. LOL.

I dont think so either, unless they shifted towards a larger RJ

Imagine the possibilities if FL had an 82-seat (4-J 78 Y) CR9

- All the less than daily florida service is now viable on a daily basis
- They can run 5-6 of those to places like HSV SAV BHM and BNA, where they can have a decent schedule despite still being outdone by Delta, its a better capacity/frequency ratio.
- MKE and BWI also become more sustainable in what they can offer.

OO is, to some degree. That's why they are doing a bunch of at risk UA* stuff too.
