NK once served both SFO and DEN, so I wouldn't put it past them.

NK also once served OAK-DTW with MD-80's at one time.

Why would NK serve SEA at the end of the tourist season??? Sounds counter-intuitive.

The end of our Seattle tourist season, but a great time to head south for the winter.

Seeing is believing...especially since the start date is late summer next year.

I'd say mostly from FLL, but a few new DTW routes wouldn't surprise me.

Hasn't DTW been shrinking?? They seem to be focused pretty much solely on FLL

Did they close the maintenance base in DTW??

And neither B6 or VX are ULCCs like NK. There is room for NK on the FLL-SFO route.

We'll take it. I wont use it, but STL-FLL-onward would be a decent enough route.

I could honestly see NK pull off AUS-FLL. As a ULCC, there are many families that would be willing to go with NK instead of WN or B6. Also, with their convenient schedules to Latin America, it makes for very good connection opportunities.

When the new North Terminal was in the works at DTW, Spirit originally leased 8 gates. When it actually opened in late 2008, they shrunk down to 3. They most definitely made a statement at that time that DTW was far from a priority anymore for them.

Either it was a bogus list, or somebody "inside" released something that shouldnt have been released. Now that we have the list, we will see which one.

I remember that. I thought I read where they wanted to expand to 60 plus flights a day. I remember they flew to places like BOS DEN and OAK. Didn't they want to expand the Caribbean also? Then they moved HQ to Florida and focused more on Fort Lauderdale service.

All of them make sense but Queretaro (QRO), it is just 2 hrs from MEX and really nobody flies there, not even AM!!
