How Is Spirit Is Doing On The New Jamaica Flights?

Fri Nov 25, 2005 6:11 am

Interested to know how NK is performing on the FLL-MBJ, FLL-KIN, and MCO-MBJ flights?


Thanks

If they can't handle the amount of baggage the Jamaicans carry with them back to the island, NK service to Jamaica (specially KIN) will end up like Jet Blue JFK-SDQ-JFK service.
I don't work for COPA Airlines!

Air Jamaica and US Airways do just fine with A320 family aircraft on FLL-KIN/MBJ, while AA uses 738s on all three daily MIA-KIN flights. Fort Lauderdale-Kingston is an important business market and Fort Lauderdale-Montego Bay has more American tourists than Jamaican residents. The aircraft size isn't going to hurt them here.

How is Spirit doing all around? Seems like you never hear about them anymore. How's their service also?

Flights have been full, I know that does not mean they are doing well but it does show that the demand is here. Also NK has resumed FLL-CUN

And sometimes JM uses both the A321 and A320

Loads from PVD have been picking back up from the SEP/OCT slow season if that means anything...

Loads are really high for Jamaica.... don't know how yield is though...As far as baggage, NK does not accept any bags over 70 lbs and no excess baggage to Jamaica, even if pax willing to pay for it. As far as overall, NK is privately held, so no one but mgmt probably knows how we are really doing, but haven't seen any desperate measures, so I guess it's a good sign.

Thanks.

I know Air Jamaica's loads have picked up significantly since NK lowered fares on the route. The yield will probably be quite challenging though.
