S12PPL: ""Umm....Alaska HAS low fares, chief. You can fly PDX
for as low as $118.00. PDX
for as low as $198.00. AS
prides themselves on they're web specials, which are truely a bargain for someone planning ahead""
Ummm, yourself, the comment was in reference to INSTRAstate fares, notPDX
or anywhere else they fly outside Alaska. . .
EA CO AS
- I understand the yield/cost per seat mile, yadda, yadda. I know I could move to say OAK
or someplace and get a $69 fare. I understand how it works.
I'm simply defending the Alaskan posters here that get it in the shorts in Alaska everytime an AS
73 lifts off intrastate from folks that live "outside" that insist the there is no argument here. Simple as that.
Look at Lono's last post, and the cost for an ANC
trip. That would an prime example - no competition, rape the flyer . . . AS
knows there is no other option in Alaska. Can't drive there, they are the only came in town, lets make some real money off these poor bastards living in the frozen north.
Once again, well worn, old bitch, but right on target.
Lono: "Growing up in SE Alaska"
I grew up in SE Alaska (Skagway) also, been taking it in the shorts from AS from way back when. It was better when there was competition from Western and PNA, but that was way back in the day. Yup, it would be nice to see another "Morris Air" come to ANC and FAI - and hopefully JNU etc.
