PITrules read my post more carefully before you write I said ACA
changing in CAE and CHO
WILL be as easy as a logo change.
This here is my quote:
"Can they fly to PHL, JFK, EWR, PIT, ROC and a host of other cities where UA is the ground handler. Yes. Will the set up be the simple name change like it would for ACA cities like CAE or CHO. NO.
On the other hand UA
doesn't need the revenue from CHO
will need the revenue from PHL
. There is no comparison.
has to begin all over again in the largest markets it says it already serves. JFK
and lots of others. In addition it will have to surrender the leases back to UA
on a number of smaller cities that UA
holds the long term leases in. CHS
for example. How much more expensive is it going to be for ACA
to set up shop in these stations where they lose thier presence, than it will be for UA
to resetup in places that where only ever served by ACA
. The money UA
would lose if they pulled out of those ACA
stations completely would still be less than the money ACA
will have to shell out to restart thier ops in those big cities. Net gain to UA
through Mesa will be able to restart in many of those cities ACA
serves and I am sure UA
would just codeshare with US on many of the others. So the financial loss to UA
So tell me how is this a good thing for ACA
again? The more this is analyized the more it looks like ACA
has just bitten off more than it can chew and is unwilling to admit it.
I eagarly await an answer from the ACA
propaganda minister, PITrules.
A little less Hooah, and a little more Dooah.
