I was wondering...do they have any extra heavy checks coming up? I would venture to guess yes so they can get things ready for the Spring Break travel season. Remember, Easter is in late March which is fairly early (ok really early) so they might be making sure the planes are ready for the peak Spring season. As far as reducing flights out of DFW
, like someone else said, it's only temporary because I was looking in March and all flights are in there.
As to the question where are all of these planes going? They've got a plan and I expect we will get to know more soon. I would venture to say that they will continue to connect the dots and relieve pressure off of ATL
. Some cities like FNT, RDU
all have their added flight to ATL
in the schedule like they've had for the past few years. I would like to see FL
and maybe ICT
out west and out east I'd like them to fly MEM
, CAK, DAY
,etc. I would suspect you'll see a few more western cities open up in probably SEA
and maybe one or 2 out east (we know of at least one rumor). The west coast cities will open when they get their long haul costs inline with what they had anticipated. I don't expect FL
to defer their deliveries at all, infact, I expect them to continue to do what they do best, jump on an opportunity when they get one and stay on a cautious offensive.
