Massive America West Expansion Planned In DEN

Thu Feb 28, 2002 9:23 am

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?

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.

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.

Now that you mention it, I think that I did hear that.
