I really wonder how the loads on BNA-MEM were for DL/NW back in the day. Northwest had about 4x daily DC9s going between the markets. Delta reduced it to daily/2x daily CRJ service till it was axed around 2013ish. Could BNA-MEM be a viable route for WN to tackle? If it was priced right, I wonder if it could get people to ditch their cars. Definitely could route some connecting pax.
WN adding BNA-MEM nonstop service would make it easier for Memphis-area travelers to connect to East Coast destinations such as BOS, LGA, EWR, PHL, DCA, RDU, CLT, CHS, and JAX from MEM on WN.
In addition, MEM is also probably far enough from BNA for WN to add BNA-MEM nonstop service since there are WN currently operates some nonstop routes shorter than BNA-MEM such as ATL-GSP, BWI-ORF, MDW-GRR, MDW-IND, DAL-AUS, DAL-OKC, FLL-MCO, FLL-TPA, HOU-AUS, HOU-CRP, HOU-SAT, OAK-RNO, ONT-LAS, and SJC-RNO. WN also used to serve BHM nonstop from BNA in the past, and BHM is closer to BNA than MEM is.
