How Will WN At IAD Affect 'Compass?'

Thu Apr 06, 2006 9:53 pm

With Southwest flying out of Dulles later this year, how will that affect NW's planned Compass? Won't many Compass flights be out of IAD?
The next generation of aircraft is just around the corner!

Quoting 7E72004 (Thread starter):

Most of their flights will likely be out of NW hubs, since they are planning on replacing some airlink flights and some DC9 flying. Their first flights are starting from Dulles to MSP, but I Don't think they will be hubbed there. Also, why would WN effect Compass, but UA and other carriers wouldn't?

The only reason for Compass' association with IAD is that it makes the transition from DH easier. In the end, the situation will probably be similar to ZW's current situation at MKE. (Is ZW hq still at ATW? That's not even a ZW station anymore.)
