Why No LGA-BWI On FL?

Out of curiosity, why doesn't FL fly LGA-BWI? They have BOS-BWI (with B6 and WN). WN has LGA-BWI. I would think that it would be a good move for FL for extra feed. I know there are slot restrictions at LGA, but maybe using them for BWI would come in handy a little more than other cities? Now that FL is expanding at other "hubs" besides ATL (MCO, BWI, MKE), maybe AirTran would want to give access to NYC travelers. Take HSV or GRR for example. They both lack ATL service but have BWI service. I think LGA-BWI would do AirTran some good.

The answer is simple: Lack of slots.


I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.

I know thered be zero O&D on it, but I hope they can find a way to add it, so they can bolster their BWI hub.


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

But AirTran has acquired more slots in the past and still hasn't started it. I know there are slot restrictions and I mentioned that. How can FL find LGA-IND to be more profitable than feeding pax (even O&D) into BWI?

Because they don't have enough markets (yet) to really feed into LGA. I agree that eventually FL will need BWI-LGA if they really want to make BWI into a hub. However, right now, I don't think they've got the feed to do it.

Well, yes and no. They have the feed, but only a few markets that are not accessible via ATL. I see where you are coming from, but the competition is starting now also. By the time FL decides to go in, they will get eaten alive (like almost every other time they attempt to compete, IMO).

Huh? That's like a 5 hour drive. Why would there not be O&D on it? Does US still fly this? If not, when was it dropped?



Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

If someone wants to travel strictly between NYC and Baltimore, probably the sanest way to do it is via Amtrak. There are dozens of departures per day each way on weekdays, and if you consider time to get to/from airport, security and wait to board, wait for takeoff, etc. the train will likely be faster and get you closer to business areas.
