Just last month, America West started leasing a 2nd gate in Denver (DEN).

I was browsing through there schedule and found out that they fly from PHX to DEN 6 times a day, 5 733, and 1 757.

Then I checked there schedule for May, and found out that they'll be operating up to 8 flights per day! 4 733s, 2 A319s, and 2 757s. Denver has never gotten this many America West flights.

Yesterday, America West just started operating a 2nd flight from Las Vegas (LAS) which it dropped in September as a result of the terrorist attacks. LAS is served by a 733 and A319.

That makes 10 flights a day on America West to DEN.

SLC currently has 5 flights a day from PHX on 737s. They will be recieving a 6th flight in April, but it will be operated by a Mesa Air (America West Express) CRJ which I found quite odd. I'd think SLC would get only 737s. America West is also starting an LAS-SLC flight also operated on a CRJ.

Any idea why the sudden expansion for America West in DEN?

Regards

10 flights a day from 7 isn't a massive expansion. It's expansion, but not massive. If they doubled flights and added more destinations, then I'd START to consider it massive.

yeah this is no where near massive, so ok they are adding a few flights, however when i saw massive i thought they were adding like 20 flts or more.

Looking at OAG for mid-May United is only operating 9 daily flights on a mix of 733s/A319s/A320s... prior to 9-11 and the demise of Shuttle there were 14 daily DEN-PHX flights. So HP may be trying to canabilize some of the volume lost by United.

Well sorry, I should have just said "expansion" without the word Massive.

Then they should add CMH-DEN. After 9/11, United dropped one of their daily flights on a 737-300.

The 2nd UA flight to CMH is coming back later this year.
