INSTRUCTIONS

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 "*".

SORRY for the delay I mentioned last week. I have to do some work on the database periodically.

Wow. I'm honestly surprised this one went. Maybe the last Venezuelan withdrew the last dollar from their ATM account outside of Venezuela.

Ditto, I think many thought this one was going to remain. Can AA move the authority to MIA or DFW? I wouldn't think so. Does AA just give up at CCS?

Does SAN either have more O&D here, or better connects (ha) that UA pulled out and now K5 is using SAN as the only air destination to/from IPL? I would think that K5 would want to stay with LAX if UA didn't want this route.

Regardless of what they can "legally" do, Venezuela is unlikely to allow/sign off on it any time soon.

Do you think they'll have to push WN out of that route? I think that'll sort itself out.

It's going from 2 D95 1M88 and 1 CR9 to 3CR9 1D95 and 1M88.

I think that might be an error. The flight is staffed for next month and still in sabre thru summer.

I can't believe this...must be an error. Up to very recently, AA said the rights on this was very valuable and the O&D was very good. There is no way AA will ever be allowed to transfer it to another route. Maybe we will see B6 announce it "in cooperation with AA". Maybe the Venezuelans woudl allow them to sell it to another carrier.

When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No-one has ever collided with the sky.

Yeah. Still in SABRE as a daily 738 until the end of the schedule. Right now November, and with the situation with Venezuelan slots I don't think it will go anywhere unless they let AA shift the flight to DFW.

It will as FL eventually becomes WN and dehubs ATL. I think you'll see less service from WN in the ATL-CAK market than FL has today.

Interesting (and new) as I just did a summer 2013 AS Hawaii turn-schedule (based on "current" online schedules and the booking engine) and almost every one of the Bay Area-HI flights was still daily. I will be looking at this carefully to see what's happening.

Hopefully AS will find some a/c time to replace this surprisingly vacated route:

I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up gone. Maybe one flight and that's a big maybe IMO. It Depends on how much traffic they're wiling to flow through ATL and how small the operation ends up.

Highly doubt it's gone. Probably removed in error - the end date a week from now gives that away - should be reversed shortly, if not already. Flight is still bookable at it's typical astronomical fares through EOS.

If this goes, I'd be shocked. That route has to print money, or AA's costs problems are far more serious than we thought.

Can't say I'm surprised to see this one gone, no matter what I read here on a.net about how well it was supposedly doing. It did not fit the cornerstone strategy, and with no connectivity beyond SJU to other Caribbean markets, there probably wasn't enough O&D between SJU/Puerto Rico and CCS/Venezuela to make it worthwhile. After all, I doubt many Puerto Ricans think "hey honey, let's check out Caracas for our next vacation" and it isn't very easy for Venezuelans to get U.S. visas for Puerto Rican vacations...

*AC PVD-YYZ MAR 1.5>0 APR 1.6>0

I read that Rhode Island's unemployment rate is the highest in the nation (along with Nevada), so I'm guessing that may have something to do with AA's reluctance to restart PVD (according to wikipedia it is the largest metropolitan area they do not serve) and AC pulling out? In any case it is a big enough blow for the airport that a thread was started about it!

Maybe they overdid it with daily service on the nonstop p2p routes between the smaller, secondary California airports and the outer islands, but at least the routes themselves remain. Maybe its just temporary, i.e. a late aircraft delivery from Boeing forcing them to come up with metal for the new routes like SAN-BOS and SEA-SLC?

Quoting enilria (Thread starter):
*AS PDX-BLI JUN 0>0.7 JUL 0>1.0 AUG 0>0.8

This has been a summer seasonal service for a while. Given that AS can apparently make year round BLI-LAS and BLI-Hawaii work - on mainline metal, mind you - it is a bit shocking they can only serve their PDX hub with a seasonal Q400.. Then again, why connect through PDX which has inherently fewer options/frequencies than SEA?

Intereting. I wonder if they think they can push WN out.
*DL ATL-CAK MAY 4>5 JUN 4>5 JUL 4>5 AUG 4>5 SEP 4>5

Perhaps, but why CAK, where FL has a strong FF base that will probably largely migrate to WN? From ATL, there are certainly much weaker FL routes that DL could target like MEM, PNS, and RDU...

In the grand scheme of things, it will be interesting to see what happens at CAK. Right now there is UAX to ORD, USX to CLT, DCA, and PHL, DL/DLC to ATL and DLC to DTW, WN to MDW and DEN, and FL to ATL, BOS, LGA, MCO, TPA, and seasonal RSW. WN drove F9 right off the DEN-CAK route, but who knows if they'll keep CAK-BOS/LGA/ATL going rather than just doing BWI and Florida like at FNT. So far they haven't reallocated 2 of those scarce LGA slots, but then again they haven't reallocated any of FL's at DCA either. Something tells me that CAK-LGA could continue until the Wright Amendment expires, and they can offer a 2x daily DAL-LGA. If FL/WN CAK-LGA ends, I wouldn't be surprised to see DL to start the route. If AA and US merge, I bet we'll see them add ORD-CAK, putting pressure on UA and WN existing services. There have been rumors of WN doing CLE-ATL in favor of CAK-ATL, but which airport got DEN service? I tend to think CAK-ATL stays...

G4 OAK-PSP FEB 0.3>0.0

I realize that there is a ton of PSP service from nearby SFO, but I wonder if OAK-PSP could be a good QX route. I've also wondered if the new WN could pull off PSP service rather than serving Palm Springs via ONT. The old airline had to run a minimum of 8 daily flights year round, which would be impossible from PSP - nobody goes there in the dead of summer. But now that they are a much more seasonal carrier (thanks, FL) I could possibly see a mix of OAK, SJC, SMF, LAS, PHX, perhaps even SFO, DEN, and MDW, 1-2x daily each, depending on the season...

LOL, well UA flew the route for a lot longer than VX did. As we have seen with many other transborder routes, AC has abandoned the routes in which they were in a weaker position than UA, and vice versa, in favor of putting a codeshare on the stronger carrier's flights. AC gave up ORD-YYC for UA, UA gives up SFO-YYZ for AC, makes sense to me.

I think DL would consider it a particular victory to push WN out of CAK-ATL as CAK was probably FL's most profitable station (certainly in terms of profit margin). I think it does not really fit with what WN is doing (or not doing) in ATL and thus is in danger. I can see CLE-ATL replacing it. I think CAK becomes leisure and CLE business markets for WN.

I know people say that CO really took over UA, but I feel like over time it is swinging back to UA. More and more they are behaving like UA and not CO. I think the UA people in the middle who stayed are gradually pushing their "strategies". I don't think the UA people care/understand GUM or Latin. I think they are fully focused on the prestige stuff to Europe with LH and Transpac.

I can see VX leaving IAD and moving to BWI now that they have a toe in DCA. UA should happily let that happen. OTOH, I think B6 leaving IAD is much more likely. I think keeping WN out of BOS-IAD is the only reason B6 is still in IAD.

All I can tell you is that I'm supposed to work a sequence that includes this leg for February. It is still in my schedule thru the end of the month so it's either a mistake (the OAG filing) or they haven't updated SABRE yet. If they are going to cancel it I hope they update the system soon!

For what it's worth, CLE has DEN on UA and adding service there would have likely resulted in WN and UA being in the CLE-DEN market while F9 remained at CAK. WN probably knew that going into CAK would eliminate the low fare competitor in the market. Not sure anyone could've predicted F9 starting CLE on a less than daily basis, but WN remains in a better competitive position with a daily flight.

Quoting enilria (Reply 16):

I could see that too. CAK was built around low fares (and a great airport with the best marketing I've ever seen an airport do). Without a significant connecting hub in ATL, WN is going to need to go where the O&D can fill most seats. The CAK-ATL market can not be stimulated beyond where FL had taken it (Unless NK ever builds up ATL....but thats another thread). CLE probably has a larger market of passengers and a higher fare which might, "might", have potential for some stimulation.

It could be very interesting to see how WN leverages their presence these two airports. There's always the possibility that neither could have ATL.

There is indeed O&D between San Juan and both Venezuela and Colombia. I have made sure to mention that whenever discussing how there is no O&D between Puerto Rico and SouthAm otherwise.

Venezuelan flight frequencies cannot be sold and Venezuela will never in a million years let JetBlue fly there. The government has already threatened to ban all U.S. airlines except AA.
