Great Lakes is in negotiations with LAWA to shift its Ontario flights over to LAX(T6).

The carrier hopes the move will improve the performance of its routes, allow it to sign up a interline partner or two at LAX, and eventually grow its network

Also assuming the move goes through, the carrier mentions separately upgauging to 30-seat EMB120s particularly on the LA-PRC-DEN thru-flight with Horizon having exited the market in August, and relative existing strenght of DEN route already.

While the below article only mentions Visalia service, the move would include the other current ZK ONT flights (PRC-FMN-DEN).

I think this is a good idea and beneficial for all if it can get done.

I would be a big improvement in terms of connections and probably better access to a lot of LA areas for the O&D. And since ZK already codeshares with UA in DEN, I imagine it would be a minimal of effort to link up UA wih ZK there in LAX.

Yes certainly LAX should provide much more interline opportunity for Great Lakes, while also being a more popular market for passengers.

But LAX does have its downsides including operating cost factors which might be an issue as ZK is somewhat a shoe-string operation.

Suppose the key will be if the move generates more revenues to offset the higher cost and luxury of being located at LAX.

I think AS should negotiate a codeshare with ZK at LAX. Then ZK could expand LAX to serve all of those old Imperial Airlines, Desert Sun Airlines and Stateswest Airlines markets. Ha ha! Wishful thinking!

So Skywest moves EMB-120's out... and someone else brings them in.

Wouldn't be surprised to see ZK eventually backfill OO in prop-only UAX markets ex-LAX as the EMBs are withdrawn by OO. Several of those routes are EAS. Additionally, there's a few SCASD grants out there for the taking - particularly from Central Valley locales.

Potentially good positioning by ZK.



With a choice between changing one's mind & proving there's no need to do so, most everyone gets busy on the proof.
