It was reported on Friday that the Department of Transportation having received four bids to supply air service for APN has chosen SkyWest. As many of you know Delta has wanted to pull service from there. They have been providing service to DTW until a replacement carrier could be acquired. The new service to both Delta hubs will begin in the fall. I am very happy for APN in achieving this new service. I applaud their hard work for a job well done.

DOT Picks SkyWest

"SkyWest beat out three other bidders in the fourth and final round of bidding to be the new carrier. After overwhelming support was expressed to the federal government, and by the local community, the department named the airline as Delta's successor."

I thought I had saw a while back that whatever carrier would most likely provide a DL codeshare on the route, is that true?

I believe you may have been referring to this from this previous thread:

SkyWest Makes Most Sense For Alpena

"One of the most beneficial aspects of SkyWest's proposal is that it provides Alpena passengers with continued access to Delta Air Lines' global network," the SkyWest proposal states. "Delta is a founding member of the SkyTeam alliance, providing seamless connections aboard 5,400 daily flights and unparalleled access to nearly all parts of the globe."

These flights will operate as Delta Connection, correct? The article doesn't specify. If so, why wouldn't they discuss the many advantages to this including continuing to use/accrue SkyMiles, etc?


Please direct your attention to the flight attendants in the cabin...

Correct me if i'm wrong but I believe the flying will be at risk on SKW's part. It's no a traditional CPA however it will be business as usual. You will be able to buy your tickets on DL.com and redeem SkyMiles.

Pretty much. SKW is making good money out of both UA and DL's inability/unwillingness to effectively service many markets---especially the EAS markets, which oddly neither UA or DL's marketing teams want to deal with. And yet, the passengers win by keeping their curret booking, keeping their mileage, thus creating further (mis-aimed) loyalty to the major.

Positive Feedback For SkyWest

"Mayor Matt Waligora said the people he has communicated with are hopeful SkyWest will be named by the DOT and pleased with the fact SkyWest operates under the Delta brand and code.

"I have heard a lot of support and especially about the aspect of a flight to Minnesota," Waligora said. "Having the Delta connection is huge as well, because people can still use their miles and not have to deal with checking baggage multiple times."

Much like the EMB120 flying for them, SLC-SUN

All of the EMB flying for DL is at-risk, as well as several jet cities.

Is there enough market to support both DTW and MSP out of APN? Alpena is a pretty small town. Not sure if it has the catchment area to support two airports as some of the catchment area could go to Pellston or even MBS

Depends on where the triffic is flowing. If it's generally to the south (FL) then either hub would get the job done. If you're talking west coast, same deal; both would work. Now anything going east to the large business centers such as NYC, BOS, DCA, etc. etc. DTW would make much more sense because a flight to MSP would be a lot of back-tracking.
