UAL777, how will one flight "take market share back?" I'm just not convinced that that will happen. Sure, the service will entice loyal United customers who connect in ORD
to get to DCA
, but the increase in market share won't come at the expense of F9
. Trust me. You will not see a decrease in loads on the DEN
segment when the UA
nonstop starts. The market is probably there for four flights anyway.
As for your comments on how you wish UA
to "stick it to" F9
, well, it has not happened yet (far from it actually), and I doubt it will happen in the future. No matter how much bitterness UA
employees have towards towards F9
(and vice versa), both carriers are deeply rooted in DEN
and each has its own target market. Who knows how things will pan out over the next few years, but I will say this, F9
will continue to grow and prosper.
