The reason why B6
is so popular is because it shows that B6
is not invincible like the press and Neeleman make it out to be. It shows that they do have a fault and that maybe they should not be so wreckless in the future.
**Reckless? Lets see they pulled out to better use there resources? Yeah that is real reckless, unlike the majors who fight tooth and nail for a single pax in the name of precious market share!**
venturing into ATL
was publicity stunt as well as B6
playing ball rather arrogantly. Everyone knew what would happen and it came back to smack them. Everyone saw it, except B6
**Backfired, hmmm, got Delta to give around hundreds and thousands of FF
miles, and put plane after plane on the route only so they could remain number one, seems to me that B6
to spend and use precious resources that they do not have to be spending right now!**
As far as the antics that Delta went to, all that you are referring to is Delta putting 7 more 757's into service on that route and offering triple miles. With those new flights, Delta offered nothing, as in no meal service. So those passengers got to choose between DL
, getting the same product, just three times the miles on Delta.
** Yeah and they got to experience the fine product that DL
As far as B6
pressuring Delta, what pressure are you referring to? It didn't have any pressure to begin with. Its FF
program is nothing compared to Delta's, and it does not have the aircraft to place any more flights into the arena. Delta offered flights every 2 hours, Jetblue offered 2 flights a day. Jetblue was completely outgunned there. All they offered was a cheaper fare. Delta simply put out what people want most, frequency and a good FF
bonus. That's all they needed. Other than that, their flights were nothing more, nothing less.
In this way, the geeky kid may not have had the looks, but he used his brains and won over the pretty gi...wait a minute. Your geeky kid/pretty girl analogy doesn't make sense in this situation. Either that, or you need to better emphasize a little more just who this alleged "pretty girl" is.
**Since my analogy escapes you, DL
is the geeky kid trying so hard to be liked, that they have to buy there love, and pay close attention here so you can get the analogy, like a divorced kid who's parents compete for his love by showering gifts upon them, that is what DL
is doing and yes it is fun for a while tho after while the parents wise up and realize you can not buy love, well DL
wake up, the new kid on the block is here to stay! **
