Long Haul LCCs, Which Airlines?

Mon Mar 22, 2004 7:21 pm

There are a number of short and medium haul low cost airlines throughout the world right now. Long haul low cost carriers are also grabbing the market more and more (which are a pain for established full service, full fare carriers). Which airlines are now already long haul low cost and which will enter this market soon?

Corsair comes to mind.

And what about One-Two-Go by Orient Thai? Are they an LCC?

I'd go as far and suggest that any high-density charter/ leisure carrier with a long haul network falls into this category.

ATA has scheduled service trans-con. LGA-SFO has started on a limited weekly schedule. PIE-LAX is a scheduled route and of course all of the TZ HI flights from SFO, LAX, PHX and SEA. Word is out on European scheduled service within the next 1 1/2 years. Barring the addition of extended range a/c, ATA will be going its limits (non-stop). The L-1011 has been a great aircraft for ATA, but will not be used to start scheduled service. It is just a matter of time before TZ places that order for 767, 777 or I will go out on a limb and say 7E7. ATA has positioned itself better than any other U.S. LCC to get in the long haul market.

Thanks TriStar. That jogged my memory on another point to make. ATA staffs stations worldwide from its charter and military business further adding to its superior position over other U.S. LLCs as far as long haul service is concerned. I am afraid I don't know much about LCCs outside of the U.S.
