This is going to be interesting, and I wonder if CO
is going to match the low ATA fares on the EWR
enjoys it dominant position at EWR
and would very much prefer to keep a low-cost carrier like ATA out of EWR
-Midway with onward connections is one thing, but a key transcon route such as EWR
is another. JetBlue also competes on trascon flights out of the New York area via JFK
airport, but its flights operate into Long Beach, Oakland and Ontario (is JetBlue still operating into Ontario?) which distinguishes their services a bit from the traditional airlines.
Is ATA setting up a mini-hub or focus city at SFO
? I am trying to understand why ATA selected a route such as EWR
as most of their operations are cetnered around Midway and Indianapolis.
