Air Tran Expansion From The New York City Area

Wed Jan 12, 2005 1:28 pm

It seems to me like there hasnt been much expansion from Laguardia for Air Tran except for adding a few flights to Newport News. In the future will Air Tran be adding any flights from the New York area to keep up with the competition from all the other low cost carriers around?All opinons welcome on this Post And A Belated Happy New Years

Unless we can come up with another gate at LGA, you won't see expansion anytime soon. As it stands right now, we rely on borrowed gate space to operate two turns and overnight an aircraft. At one point in the afternoon, there is a departure scheduled for 1559 with an arrival due in at 1600. With LGA's notorious congestion issues, this usually creates a problem. The ATL-LGA market contains are largest number of ASM's systemwide month after month.
