>LaGuardia Airport is one of two US Airports where the slots are actually governed by the FAA (the other, unsurprisingly, is Washington-National).<
Actually, the slots are governed by the DOT, not the FAA.
>I don't think WN
will enter the NYC market because of the expense involved and the way their business model is structured.<
has a lower CASM and flies out of JFK
>If they enter this market their fixed costs would rise so high, that they would be just another airline when it comes to cost structure.<
Now we know that is not true, otherwise LAX
, etc. would have already done that
>Thus going into all the secondary airports<
You mean like they don't do in LAX
, and more?
>where the landing fees and terminal leases are next to nothing<
See above and add that LAX
is a good example of where WN
flies from one of the most attractive terminals (Terminal 1, the first one in, and easy out because of the cut in the loop to 7 and the airport exit) that the need more space in?
>compared to NYC's big three as well as some other major airports around the country<
Do you know how easy B6
got it at JFK
because they brought some low fare competition there?
I agree with Fred about WN
missing the boat on JFK
, though I think they have been leary about markets that are rather open to big snow and congestion delays, as went their experience at DEN
