USAToday: MSY To Get More Seats In December

Sat Aug 12, 2006 6:59 am

http://blogs.usatoday.com/sky/2006/08/new_orleans_ben.html

It basically says that New Orleans will be receiving 18% of all new seats to be added in December. So it'll be 18% of 11,500 total seats. It says that AA and WN will be adding the most capacity to MSY, and that DL will also be adding seats.

Anyone have an idea as to which routes which will be added?

Wouldn't that be nice? USAToday must know someone on the inside.  Wink

with the AA BOS flight no where in sight, maybe a WN Saturday only PVD-MSY could work??

I honestly thought that PVD-MSY could work a few years ago, maybe something like PVD-MSY-HOU-LAX, or something of the sort. It'd be real nice to see, but when it comes to WN and MSY these days, I have my doubts....I'm guessing it'll just be a few more Florida flights, an extra DAL flight or two, and maybe one more PHX.

I would be willing to bet a B6 flight BOS-MSY would start before that would start.

If AA restarts BOS-MSY, that's when I know my milkshake will in fact bring all the boys to the yard!

I thought the AA to BOS was big success?

I'm disappointed US still hasn't gone back to MSY from PHX or LAS. What a sad hole in the network. Nobody on the west coast wants to connect through CLT or PHL, especially here at PDX since we don't have CLT service. Just to get to MSY we have to route PDX-PHL-MSY or, worse, PDX-PHX-CLT-MSY.
