Well TW fans, we've discussed this a lot lately, but TW announced today they're increasing their FLL-SJU service 200% (3 flights daily seasonally, 2 flights daily year round).
The interesting thing to me is what was said in the press release...
"We're adding service to meet the demands of passengers who have discovered Fort Lauderdale is THE new gateway to San Juan and the Caribbean"
This suggests 2 things to me:
1) FLL-SJU is doing extremely well on both ends, competing very well with AA, and people (like me) have discovered FLL is a hell of a lot easier to get in and out of than MIA.
2) If FLL is indeed THE new gateway to SJU and the Caribbean, and we know TW is focusing heavily on SJU and the Caribbean, we'll see more flights (new destinations) to/from FLL to feed their Caribbean network.
Here's the full press release:
One mission. The Caribbean.
