Given the absolute headache that B6
has been giving both AA
causing both of them to totaly drop their ambitious Domestic growth strategies from JFK
(based on large RJ
growth), why on earth would they want to set up a large operation to compete with WN
who is the largest and most succesful LCC of them all.
The first thing that is going to happen at PHL
is going to grow alot, making PHL
it's largest or second largest station. WN
will grab about 15 or more gates and boost it's flying up to BWI
Next someone like Airtran most likely will jump in and take over Domestic, Canadian and Carribean flying WN
will not touch such as..
, Atlanta, Boston, Bermuda, Cancun, San Juan, Dominican Republic etc..
NWA might be interested in operating some International flights from PHL
, and DL
may be interested in moving some of their International flying away from JFK
where there's much less competition.
Everything though is speculation except for WN
, they are going to grow PHL
one way or another to make it one of it's top two stations.
