NWA Announces FNT-FLL Oct. 30th

Fri Aug 05, 2005 8:32 pm

I think this is in response to Air Trans recent announcement, Norhtwest Airlines wil be starting FNT-FLL Oct 30th.

Not only will airtran be starting DTW-MCO, I belive I read Airtran will be starting FNT-RSW as well. . .

The new service will be operated with the 100-seat DC-9-30, featuring
16 seats in first class and 84 seats in coach class.
Currently, Northwest offers more daily departures (up to 11) and carries
more passengers from Flint than any other airline. The new service to Ft.
Myers will complement the seven daily flights Northwest currently offers
between Flint and its WorldGateway at Detroit hub, and the two daily flights
between Flint and the carrier's Minneapolis/St. Paul hub. Northwest also
provides seasonal daily service from Flint to both Orlando, Fla., and Tampa,
Fla., from Dec. 15 to April 30, and weekly Saturday service to those cities
the rest of the year.

NW started daily FNT-MCO, FNT-TPA, and Sat. only FNT-FLL about 2 years ago. This is nothing new. However they have altered their Florida schedule by making MCO & TPA Sat. only during the summer, but it will go back to daily during the winter. Weekly FLL will not return, however the new announcement is for RSW, which should do quite well in addition to new LAS service.

I think you will see NW go back to daily FNT to FLL and TPA in the late fall.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

As is says in the press release FNT-MCO & FNT-TPA operate daily mid Dec-April.

FNT-FLL weekly service will not return this year. AirTran is not going to operate FNT-FLL either.
