Why Doesn't WN Have Red-eye Flights?

Tue May 23, 2006 11:53 pm

WN has always made efforts to increase fleet utilization in its many years of profitable operation. But why no red-eye flights from its west coast points to its major east coast points?

Normally I try to keep from commenting on the search engine, but this really is a very common topic. At least a few dozen threads about this just in the time I've been here. Doesn't A.net have an updated FAQ somewhere?

Well, certainly not on all 450+ aircraft!

I can't imagine most red-eye flights make money! Why fly a plane if you're not guaranteed to atleast break even.
Good Luck to all Skyway Pilots! It's been great working with you!
