I find it amazing that these forigen carriers can come in and actually be profitable.
Example: Here in Dallas, AAL
has a daily T7
fly to London, but so does BAW. Infact, the aircraft only depart some 30 minutes apart. Now either they are keeping eachothers prices down by doing this, or there just really is that high of a load out of dallas that warrants 2 diffrent carriers.
When I planned my trip to holland, I rode BAW...they were just a few bucks cheaper than AAL
, plus they had the PTV's in Y class. Same airplane too.
So how can Aer Lingus honestly come into a place like Miami, where I am sure that there are other airlines that service Ireland, and expect to turn a profit? Are the loads really that high?
