AQ SNA-OAK Jun 1st Only

Tue May 30, 2006 12:03 pm

Hello, everyone!

I realized that this is only a reposition flight only, but apparently AQ is flying one-way SNA-OAK on 6/1.

Travel on June 1st only - Orange County to Oakland $20* one way.

Although, their online reservations states the routing to be SNA-SMF, which I knew about.

I'm kind of confused.

Perhaps AQ may start a flight between OAK and SNA? Possibility?

Not when they'd be competing against two established carriers - WN and AS - in the market. It would be rather stupid.

AQ flies against two established carriers on the OAK-LAS route. Why not SNA?

OAK-LAS is a tag-on designed to feed traffic from LAS to HNL. They're certainly not aiming to take on HP and WN in the O&D or connecting markets.

Besides, SNA is slot-restricted and AQ has no slots.
