I am sure they will do well, but I wouldn't want to go on that flight personally because me and economy does not work well for red eye flights even if there is a TV playing late night TV shows.

because B6 is going after the BOS-SEA-BOS

AS has strong brand loyalty out of SEA and offers connections to west coast markets (from small northwest cities to Alaska).

BOS-LAS had a very slow launch and even performed poorly in the summer. But for some strange reason it's performing very well now. I guess the market just had to warm up to the new service. Same thing will go with SEA

It seems to me, that B6 will be the next airline to give a go, at operating a hub at BOS. AA and DL didn't do so hot, although if DL wasn't in such a position right now, I could see them using their new terminal. US is shrinking by the day it seems, even though HP added SFO and LAX last year. (I think they only kept the lax flight?!) So good luck B6, maybe you'll make it work.

Ahhh... but no one has mentioned that B6 has a large opperation in BOS with connections to E. Coast markets.
|Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 15):|
What connections does B6 offer in BOS that are not already available through JFK? There might be some connecting traffic on the BOS-SEA-BOS flights, but nothing that would justify the route. B6 has to be relying on passengers travelling between Boston and Seattle. Though I can't imagine them getting many SEA based passengers since there is little advertising. Good luck to them, but I still think that despite a somewhat inferior product (lack of TV) AS will still do well in the market.

LAS hits its peak in the winter as people flock to the winter heat and casinos.
