AirTran Wants BWI-CUN

Wed Jul 27, 2005 12:35 am

airTran never said it directly, but it is clear from this DOT submission that they want Baltimore-Cancun:

http://dmses.dot.gov/docimages/pdf92/340351_web.pdf

They are asking DOT to postpone renewing United's Dulles-Cancun authority, and saying that USA 3000 basicly shouldn't have WAS-CUN authority, because they are essentially providing a scheduled charter service. They never mention they want to fly BWI-CUN, but it is obvious that's what they are looking for.

They also argue it is senseless that DCA/IAD and BWI are both considered Washington, D.C. I agree strongly with this latter point. MIA/FLL and SFO/OAK are seperate, and they are considerably closer to each other than DCA/IAD and BWI.

Oh, they've been throwing a fit about it for months, in a couple of different dockets. It's really embarrassing to read some of their filings.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

They want it all right. BWI-CUN sounds like a good deal
