I guess a loss of a couple of hundred million is doing good, huh?
I love how you guys split ridiculous hairs. No matter how you slice it or what you call it, CO
are not doing well. Compared to US, they're doing well. Compared to any other business operated in a free market, they are not doing well.
JetBlue is doing well. They are doing well because they don't charge $1900 for a ticket. Anywhere. Period.
I also love how you guys are tying to enlighten me on LGA
. I was raised next to the airport--I KNOW the LGA
situation. Fact is, JFK
was long overlooked by the majors when it came to domestic short-haul service. They said nobody would fly out of JFK
because of LGA
However, considering the B6
business plan thus far has been based solely on flying out of JFK
, I guess the majors were wrong, weren't they?
It's funny, as much as everyone has responded, no one has yet to address the issue of JFK
going from 3 flights a day under DL
/TW to the busiest route in the country.
Will all of you guys who revere the old dogs please address how DL
had 2 727 flights a day and TW
had one MD
80 flight a day up until B6
I suppose the JFK
market has grown to 7X
it's original size in the past four years, right?
Because now there are 15+ flights on B6
and 5+ flights on DL
. 3 flights to 20 flights a day in just 4 years. ALL
LARGER PLANES WITH MORE SEATS.
How about PBI
One flight a day on an MD
80 with TW
. I suppose the 5-8 flights a day on B6
and the 2 flights on DL
represents a tremendous growth on the route--also in just 4 YEARS!
Just two examples . . . before you tell me how great AA
are at LGA
, please address why none of them ever had 15 flights a day to FLL
from either airport. Please address that first, then tell me how evil B6
is and how great the old dogs are.
