FAQ

WHAT IS THIS REPORT?
This compares what is for sale THIS WEEK for the stated period versus what was for sale LAST WEEK...It does NOT compare to last year or now (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED).

HOW DO I READ IT?
XXX-YYY DEC 4>5 JAN 4>5 ; means that the listed airline changed the frequency between the two airports to add from 4 to 5 roundtrips in December and January. No other months were changed. I only list one direction, although it is possible the listed change is only one way. It is too difficult to average the two directions. I assume the change is roundtrip and that is most often the case.

HOW ARE THE DAILY DEPARTURES CALCULATED?
This report uses total operations for the month listed, divided over the days in the month.

WHAT ARE THE FRACTIONAL FLIGHTS?
Non-daily operations create fractional weekly service. In most cases flights are rounded, but in the case of international service or markets with low frequency, fractions are shown. If a flight operated 5 days out of 7, it would show 0.8 flights.

WHY ARE THERE WEIRD FREQUENCIES IN FAR AWAY MONTHS FOR LCCs?
Most airlines publish schedules 11 months in advance. This report covers the next 9 months. That avoids seeing schedules as they are loaded. Several LCCs load their schedules less than 9 months into the future. Their schedules may also end mid-month. If B6 loads their schedule until Jan15, all flights in Janaury will show half frequency because of the way the report is created.

WHY IS A WHOLE AIRLINE'S SCHEDULE SHOWN AS CHANGING FOR A FUTURE MONTH?
Similarly to the previous question, some airlines load their schedule from nothing inside the 9 month window of this report. When their schedule is extended it will show as new service because there was no previous schedule to compare to. In some instances I will show a more valid comparison against another period.

THOSE FLIGHTS AREN'T DELTA, THEY ARE PINNACLE
This report only shows the marketing code. It is too complicated to show all the operators.

THE FREQUENCIES MAY HAVE CHANGED AS YOU SHOW, BUT THE SEATS DIDNT CHANGE BECAUSE OF EQUIPMENT SWAPS
That is a natural weakness of a frequency based report, but it provides something to discuss below.

THE FREQUENCY DOESN'T SHOW A CHANGE, E.G. 4>4
This happens as a result of rounding. There is a change in service that is large enough to be listed, but through rounding it does not appear.

I marked some of the ones I thought were interesting with an "*".

**DL MEM-JFK JAN 1.0>0.1 FEB 1.0>0

This isn't particular surprising to me. DL previously tried MEM-JFK once daily only to pull it later, then decided to reinstate it (presumably at least in part to compensate for MEM-AMS reductions). I suspect MEM's relatively modest European demand is largely concentrated to cities that can be reached one-stop via ATL (if not also MSP and DTW), so I don't think JFK brings that much to the table. This would be especially true in winter given the seasonality of many of the JFK-Europe flights.

So last week we find VX cutting BOS, now they are adding the routes bacK? Can they make up their mind?

Also B6 adding frequency on LAX-BOS is interesting. UA is down to one a day on the route, and this is also going to put pressure on AA, as this has been one of their bread and butter routes for many years.

I notice an AF cut in BOS-CDG, but no addition from DL. I thought the plan was for DL to add a freq to this pair, unless that was in a different revision.

It was, but this is an EAS route that was taken over by SkyWest I believe operating on the DL certificate, or Great Lakes. Either way since the EAS is with a new carrier, this route can be cut.

PHL I believe could be another AF shift. Again the DL and AF schedule changes seem to not be in sync. PIT is ending the subsidies I believe, so I am eager to see if this route even lasts past summer.

The funny thing is that American complained that if WA went away then pax would flock to DAL because thats where they all want to fly out of. But it doesn't seem like that because many airlines have tried and failed to make DAL work with RJ's. Could they work with mainline planes? Maybe. But I suspect that post wright, DAL is going to be to the Metroplex what MDW is to Chicago.

PIT's thing is weird there. Cut in April and added in May.

For PHL, Wiki says it's seasonal. AF doesn't operate this route yet.

It is. After just being taken over by a European company, we just joined our first all-sites broadcast from the CEO who basically said Europe economy sucks and it will continue to suck for at least the next decade and it will not be our main focus so look for more involvement in the US and ROW.. so, uhmmm, yeah..

It is hub-to-hub, but that's no guarantee that it will work if the flows don't make sense and the local traffic is better served on the also hub-to-hub MEM-LGA flights. It's not much different than AA only flying ORD-JFK and DFW-JFK each once daily (and being unable to make STL-JFK work when they were still more active at STL), and that's with a much larger hubs and O&D bases on the non-JFK end.

I would be very surprised if B6 opened MEM ahead of many, many bigger holes in their route map in the center of the country.

Edit: Just realized I didn't answer your question regarding MEM-LGA. The route is served 3x daily with DL mainline equipment. It's currently 1x M88, 2x 319 and switches to 1x 320, 2x 319 on the next schedule. I believe UA is at 3x ERJ on MEM-EWR.

Interesting to see the COS pulldown. Probably a struggle between loads and yield management during low travel times of the year.

Orlando-Knoxville starts this Saturday, Oct. 20th, and officially ends January 6th, 2013. G4 has the market tied up with 4-5x weekly service in Jan/Feb and daily service in March (from SFB rather than MCO of course).

But I suspect that post wright, DAL is going to be to the Metroplex what MDW is to Chicago.

I suspect so too. Will be cool to see WN non-stops on DAL-LAS/PHX/LAX/MDW/BWI/MCO (all of which are pretty much a given IMO).



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

Actually after checking those all appear to be year-around, not sure why it's showing as 0 flights:

MSP-SFO, LAX, and JFK is daily except Saturday this Spring, ramping up by June
MSP-BOS is 4x weekly Jan-Mar, and ramps up to daily by the middle of April

USAirways is at two daily on the same city pair, so LH is not going to have trouble getting pax to PHL via codeshares.

Still, you'd like to see LH do well enough on their own to fly it daily during the summer. I believe LH has a hard time getting premium paxs, which seems to be a problem that plagues PHL.

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 4):
For PHL, Wiki says it's seasonal. AF doesn't operate this route yet.
AF operated this for a while. Then after ATI with DL they handed it over to a seasonal DL 752 which has been running the past few summers. Who knows where it is headed, with the other seasonal adjustments maybe DL is running this for an even shorter summer period.

Either very healthy up front yields or cargo below or both. Just checked with a couple of folks I know who fly it regularly and they tell me....F & J seats are very hard to get close in..always gobs of Y space. to them anecdotally, More than 60% of the plane now goes on to SIN.

Thanks, as always, for your updates!

 
Quoting steex (Reply 1):
This isn't particular surprising to me. DL previously tried MEM-JFK once daily only to pull it later, then decided to reinstate it (presumably at least in part to compensate for MEM-AMS reductions).

It's surprising because they cut MEM-JFK to help keep MEM-AMS going (pushing all the Europe traffic onto AMS). Now they aren't flying either in Winter.   Last year they were flying AMS non-stop in Winter and now JFK doesn't even work.  
Quoting apodino (Reply 2):
It was, but this is an EAS route that was taken over by SkyWest I believe operating on the DL certificate, or Great Lakes. Either way since the EAS is with a new carrier, this route can be cut.

But am I correct that was the last F9 E145?

Quoting apodino (Reply 2):
PIT is ending the subsidies I believe, so I am eager to see if this route even lasts past summer.

Correct. If the Europe economy is as bad as it appears then it seems doubtful, but that isn't PIT's fault.

Quoting apodino (Reply 2):

I'm just shocked to see LH fly a route like that 5/week in June.

Quoting apodino (Reply 2):
But it doesn't seem like that because many airlines have tried and failed to make DAL work with RJ's.

I wonder if this bodes poorly for DAL-ATL on DL. I suspect it means that is also awful.

Thanks E again for the updates!

 
Quoting PHX787 (Reply 4):
I am shocked though, isn't this a hub-to-(small) hub flight? What's the service like between MEM and LGA?

There's no local traffic of consequence. It's all connecting to Europe...or isn't since the flight is going away.

I'm smelling a B6 addition here in a few months  

Very doubtful

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 4):
PIT's thing is weird there. Cut in April and added in May.

Not added in May. They just delayed the start date so it operates less in April (0 to be exact) and less in May.

Quoting steex (Reply 10):
It is hub-to-hub, but that's no guarantee that it will work if the flows don't make sense and the local traffic is better served on the also hub-to-hub MEM-LGA flights.

I think the AMS flight won't come back this Summer for MEM. I'd be shocked. If it does, it will be 3/week. (BTW, I said that months and months ago.)

Quoting steex (Reply 10):
I would be very surprised if B6 opened MEM ahead of many, many bigger holes in their route map in the center of the country.

Agreed. Market is too small.

Of course it got hacked. F9 sidestepped a landmine by avoiding the merger with Westpac. Westpac failed because they couldn't get out of COS fast enough. If there was no market for them then, why would F9 think there was magically now? Republic has really spun them down the toilet bowl, just when they were on the right track financially coming out of bankruptcy.

I disagree. AS has shown over the last few years incredible restraint when it comes to routes and capacity. If they don't believe they can get their goal of 10% ROIC, they don't seem to be interested in flying it. Adding additional capacity on the market just to scare away F9 or WN is only going to decrease their yield, further reducing their ROIC goal. Why would they suddenly depart from that restraint they have shown so well as of late? The last time I can think of that AS through a bunch of capacity at a problem was when VX started SEA-SFO/LAX back in 2008 IIRC.

I also don't understand why AS would suddenly decide to throw extra capacity at the route to fight F9 or WN, especially since both have been flying that route for at least 4/5 years. Yes F9 has been struggling a bit as of late, but reports are that they are recovering, and the timing is all wrong now - they should have been going after F9 when they were struggling more.

Not so fast. You're grouping COS with all other airports in Colorado, and COS does not receive the volume ski traffic many other Colorado airports do.

Based on enplaned and deplaned passengers, Jan-April is the slowest time of the year for COS. Even months like May & October were busier (I pulled 2010 data to avoid the F9 skewing it).

I'd be curious if routes like BLI-LAS competing with 1-4x daily flights on G4 meets the 10% ROIC. It certainly might - but I do question it.
