Song (un)officially Dead In May

Thu Feb 23, 2006 1:02 am

Hey guys,
it appears as if the dreaded May schedule has come out. I was searching for BDL-FLL to go home for summer break and I have good news and bad news

The good news:
It will still be in a 1 class song aircraft
it will still be under the same flight numbers

the bad news:
its no longer a song operated by Delta
which means:
the fare is ridiculasly expensive. The same class as it was on song went from $100 to $259! It is now CHEAPER to connect in ATL.

I am not too happy about this. How does DL expect to fill the plane with fares THAT much higher?

I'm not sure if the other schedule changes are there at this time

please feel free post any other new schedule changes for may or more info on the song transition if possible! Thanks!
NEXT FLIGHT: FLL-ATL-HPN on FL

Well thankfully I shot some on Sunday. Im gonna miss those snot-rockets.... But I agree with you, all those flights were leisure fare's, with folks who dont want to connect. But then again, they were [i]leisure[i/] fares which ment DL made no money on them. But people will still fly direct, becasue its direct, even if it costs more.

Actually i think this was just a name change from Song to Delta, thats it, but I still dont think May schedule has come out. Though this is likely a sign that the schedule update is comming soon. All i know is im trying to plan a trip to get on song before song is over and done.

well, I've been a loyal DL flier all my life. I am flying WN BDL-MCO-FLL in March because I decided to travel later than the nonstop (and that backfired on me, so now I'm stuck with a morning WN connection because of my stupid spanish class)...
anyway, as loyal to DL as I have been, I am still a poor college student and I would fly WN if the price is right. Also, I don't care how in the red you are, you still have to offer liesure fares on these routes...and I'd like to add that the BDL routes are $250 while the LGA, JFK, and BOS fares are $70 :::caugh:::jetblue:::caugh::: (should I really be suprised that its only BDL losing their liesure fares...should I be worried that BDL will lose their FLL n.s?)

Well, frankly, there is no competition, well there is WN, but with DL's product you get IFE, BOB food and just a better ride IMHO. but it all boils down to the fact of supply and demand, DL and WN are the only suppliers, so they can charge what they want. But since B6 is undercutting them at evey station, they still have low fares....

Well, welcome to WN then. I am a loyal CO flier, but that doesn't mean I don't take another airline once in a while, and WN is a nice airline to fly. You won't have your PTV's, that's true, but I still like them.

I doubt it, since FLL is a large market from BDL and DL is the primary (only?) n/s provider. With DL trying to eliminate all the leisure fares, i highly doubt all those BDL-FLA seats will remain intact, but i think all destinations will remain. The hardest thing is that there is no competitive force there besides WN, but nothing like what BOS JFK and LGA have.

Here is what I can see for BDL-post song ( by fall when transition is complete)

FLL 1-2 mainline (732/MD88/738/757)
MCO 2 mainlline (732/MD88/738/757)
TPA 1-2 mainline (732/MD88/738/757)
LAX goes to a 738 4-5x/ week
PBI Either 1 smaller mainline or perhaps will become 2x CR7 like RSW.

250 bucks is a good deal, and 70 bucks is a steal. Offering money losing non-stop leisure fares while in the red is fiscal stupidity. Where are they going to make the money back from?

I'd rather airlines protect themselves with higher prices, preventing people who have no business flying from doing so. Rather than becomming the city busses in the sky.

Your case is just another example of people looking for the cheapest fare, having no airline loyalty, and still complaining about the price.

I thought the plan was to start converting these planes to a 2 class config, initially using them on all their current routes, but eventually expanding it to all flights over 1750 miles. However, I also thought that, unfortunately, the BOB program would be discontinued.

Well, I had to pay 769.00 US$ to do JFK-LAX-JFK December 18/21 which I found ridiculasy expensive. OK, I only booked the ticket a week ahead, but
thought that this was a really high fare. Booking Class B. Never got the miles
for it either. Next time, will do UA for 298.00 US$ or may be even Jetblue.

Well things regaridng post song at DL have been very quiet. My own personal assumption is that the song 757s will be replacing the 763 and 764s domestically as those 76's get placed internationally. MD88/738s replace the 757s and down the line you go.....

IMO, that's rude and you have no right to talk to him like that. Flairport is actually from Florida and attends school in Connecticut, but that's besides the point. He was simply explaining that $259 is double what he had paid to fly Song previously, that the connecting flight is cheaper than the non-stop flight, and WN is offering a better fare.

I mean really...they fought hard against B6 to regain control of the market. I highly doubt they're going to put us back on the dreaded M80s.

Easy now people.... I agree the comment was out of line, however, i think we all need to realize the days of low fares as we knew them are gone. Just two years ago i was paying $1.25 a gallon for gas and $125 r/t from FLA-PVD. The revenue environment today doesnt allow for those low fares to exist and i think BDL had some fares lower than were necessary (no B6 competition and limited WN compeition). Gas stations would not be in business if they were still offering it for $1.25/ gallon, same goes for airlines.

Best way to see if you are gettign a decent deal is just calulate the yeild.

BDL-FLA (1100 mi) @ 0.10 = $110 e/w = $220 fare + taxes and fees means $259 r/t is a very fair fare.

Thanks for doing so. I don't think you meant to come across as rude but I understand how you're feeling. $259 is a reasonable fare for BDL-FLL, and I wouldn't mind paying it, but if there's a lower fare I'd definitely buy that one.

In any case, I commend DL for attempting to increase its revenue on routes that traditionally have low fares. However, to be successful in doing so, I would think that WN would have to match the fare increase or DL would have to drop capacity.

DL should keep BDL with the low fares b/c I herd that they do great there on the BDL-FLA routes and by now making the fare sky high, they will most likely lose some PAX to WN and have tons more have to connect through ATL. I mean yea to connect through ATL is great b/c you have so many options but when you want BDL-Florida and a lot of people fly it and there is more than enough PAX to support the route, just keep it low.

Anyway, where can I find the schedule on the internet?

Why would any airline, esp once in BK want to offer low fares when they dont have to? My point is cut out the money loosing seats and let WN/LCCs have them. Offer a superior product to those who pay more, no crazy high fares, but decent ones where the airline breaks even.

yes it was a big steal! My comment was that people are not going to go from $70 to $250 overnight!

As opposed to $350! $250 is great for me, but not for the 2 times a year that I travel up with my family and they go home! Also, the market on FL-NE is not like the market in the Ohio area!

Now I understand you apologized, but i just want you to understand that it is such a large fare jump. Like I said if it was $70 to $150 it wouldn't matter. I see it as now that the song brand is gone, they can charge a premium and while thats not wrong, I don't know if its wise in this case.

I am not too happy about this. How does DL expect to fill the plane with fares THAT much higher?

 rotfl  Does this mean that DL isn't in a pissing contest with everyone and is actually going to persue RASM? While I agree this is a jump in fares... It would have broken my bank back when I was in college, so I feel your pain. However, it is a free market and you can take cheaper options (which I've noted you've done).  spin 

If I interpret your post 20 a little, you seem to be arguing for a "boiling frog" scenario where a slow increase in fares would preserve business/loyalty/customer relations rather than a sharp jump that everyone notices. Or did I put words in your mouth? $259 one way for your ticket isn't that bad, but it appears more than others will offer a 1-stop service for less. Gotta love the free market!  bigthumbsup

I agree the comment was out of line, however, i think we all need to realize the days of low fares as we knew them are gone.

I partially agree (or maybe totally, interpreting "tone" in posts is tough) in that fares will go up. However, I see no reason they won't stay low(ish). WN, B6, and others seem to be raising fares $40-$80/roundtrip not by $400 back up to the "good ol' days" of $1000+ walk up fares. (Yes, I know they still exist in some domestic markets... ouch!)

Quoting RL757PVD (Reply 17):

This I agree with also. DL seemed to aim for the foot and then reload... There is no reason their RASM couldn't be higher as this one example shows. I'm not saying they should get greedy, but a 10% increase in RASM (yes, that means a 15% to 20% increase in fare due to lower load factors) should be possible. IIRC they had about a 9.7 RASM. A 10.5 RASM would be pretty close to their BK inflated CASM. (Not quite, but at least slow the blood letting.)

For the record: DL was the first airline I flew on. For that reason and others I hope they make it. However, as their service from LAX has become... sparse... I admit I haven't flown them in a few years.

I would have thought that the mere point that you have booked a flight means you have business in flying on that plane even if it is for the ride,and sure put you airfares as high as you want and watch your shiny new planes that you just bought sit idley as the rest of the industry whos got their head screwed on the right way steal your business from under your nose.
Your comment is just oozing with bitterness towards people who do not conform to what you think we should all pay and feel that we are all somehow below the privelege of flying unless we pay top dollar for that,yeh right, i fly because i have to get my butt from a to b and who ever offers me the best price and service gets my bucks not some pumped up airline whos overheads are 3 times more than everyone else and whos service is no better than the rest(BA LOVERS TAKE NOTE) and think that its their god given right that they should get my money.

All I know is I'm looking forward to it happening...it'll be about time elites get pre-boarding and upgrades on these routes again...I will admit I have routed through ATL and CVG to avoid Delta Express and Song in the past several years (at least DLX had pre-boarding, so when on an award ticket I'd at least use them then).

song actually had preferred seats...rows 1-4 were preferred and would board in Zone 1...I understand the medallions frustration....however, for over 2 years i have heard praises about the product, the service, and yes the flight crews from Medallions....silver, gold, platinum and even MM....It's not everyones cup of tea...if you prefer the pre-board with a connection over non-stop....that is certainly your choice to make...I look forward to bringing the best of both worlds together

As far as I know, the 5/1/05 schedule has been done for quite sometime now...at least a good 9 months

That doesnt mean its correct  Wink

All airlines post up to 331 days in advance, however typically they are only accurate 2 months in advance. Often times you will notice if you look 3-4+ months out they re-set back to old flight times and flight #'s. That tells you you are looking at the "default" schedule, that hasnt been changed yet.

Yes you could...however...Other than the pre-boarding...there's no perk to sitting in the front cabin ...what I consider premium seats are...17 A, C, D & F (exit) 16 A, C, D & F (exit limited recline) 10 A & F ( exit ) and finally 9 B,C,D & E (exit last to board )

No he means when F comes back. When there actually ARE perks to sitting in the front cabin, when it has a 26F seat config.
