Here is a question on US if they go under. If they do indeed go under, what would be the logistics of Airlines like WN and B6 moving into markets such as PHL and PIT big time?
My rational behind this would say it is a bad idea considering that these airlines have hubs/major focus cities close by in JFK and in BWI. On the flip side of the coin, the advantages I can see are taking up slot space in airports such as LGA, BOS, DCA that will be bountiful. But it seems like it would be a tough call. My final question is how do you think the fleet would be divided up? I would think the 320's might head by way of B6 or NW, if either would take on more planes or used planes. The 319's, 321's to United/HP/NW? 330's to a plethora of carriers? Also the old 737s, do you think any would go to mainline US carriers or are they a little to dated/used, and would they likely be sent to "second rate" airlines? And of course the commuter fleets, I imagine would just enter service with numerous other airlines? Just a few thoughts to digest this evening. Thanks Folks.
