Merged US Airways Impact On Other Airlines At PHX

Thu Nov 10, 2005 8:50 am

Looking ahead at December schedules for Phoenix, I've noticed several airlines have not replaced capacity the way they normally do in the fall. Some observations:

Delta - Only one 767 on the schedule (ATL) - understandable due to
reduction of 762s from the fleet, but no increase in the number of
flights.

Northwest - Only one 757-300 (MSP-PHX-DTW), but no resumption of 2x
daily to MEM, and decrease in the number of usual flights to
MSP (I remember winters past with 9-10x daily and multi 753s)

Continental - No 757s to IAH, CLE down to one daily 738.

United - A320s to everywhere, boring, but not a change in the recent past
for them. Gone are the days of 757s/767s and DC10s.

Air Canada - No aircraft upgrade (to A321 or 767)

Alaska - no 739's or increase in number of flights

US Airways - even with the merger, no increase in hub-hub capacity (all 320
family a/c)

The only carrier that seems to be carrying on business as usuall is AA with 11x daily to DFW (mostly 757s) and 6x ORD.

What gives?

Quoting Thegooddoctor (Thread starter):
United - A320s to everywhere, boring, but not a change in the recent past
for them. Gone are the days of 757s/767s and DC10s.

US Airways - even with the merger, no increase in hub-hub capacity (all 320

For US there was an increase in frequency out of CLT, PIT did not lose a flight to PHX like they did to SFO, DEN and LAS on Mondays Tuesdays and Wednsday on the next schd and PHL gains at least on Flt a day. Also on thing to rember with US is that on a whole a bunch of transcon pax that would have had to connected thru one of the eastern hubs will have the opertunity to go direct on a HP flight.


As for UA PHX is TED station now.
