With the strike now official at NK and all flights canceled. Do you think WN will try to gain market share @ FLL and a lesser extent DTW?

Look to B6 to make the most of the situation. WN only flies northbound from FLL, while B6 does have southbound flights to CUN, NAS, SDQ and SJU. The problem is adding new destinations south of FLL takes time, acquiring route authorities, spare aircraft, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if B6 is looking closely at the possibilities. Perhaps FL as well.

I think you'll find pretty much all LCC's going after NK pax, including FL and VX. I'm sure the international airlines like Aires, Avianca and Bahamasair will be reaping the benefits of the strike. AA should be getting some of this traffic as well.

NK management and pilots will need to resolve this problem quickly. Otherwise, NK may be no more.

I think they would be VERY intrested in NK IF in the unlikely event things arent worked out. Routes gates probably not planes or staff as FL has 51 planes on firm order and can flex up or down the amount they need to take delivery of in a year. Also I see B6 benefiting soley because they have the infrustructure to take the planes and staff.

I can think of a couple of potential buyers. But I'm not so sure about the "gently" part. LOL.
