UA Upgrades MSY In June

Thu Mar 22, 2007 8:17 am

Just a couple of additions, but a couple of nice ones nonetheless.

MSY-DEN goes back to 3x daily Ted service in June. It has been running 2x daily with one regular 737 flight on 6 and 7 only. I'm just surprised they didn't make it daily sooner, as UA now has the market all to itself with F9's absence. MSY-DEN has always been a solid market with decent O&D.

MSY-IAD gets the 8:00am E70 flight back for a total of 3x daily.

UA will then offer a total of 11 daily flights from New Orleans:

ORD (2x E70, 1x 733)
IAD (2x E70, 1x 319)
DEN (3x 32S)
LAX (2x 32S)

When that elusive SFO nonstop returns UA will be at 100% of its pre-K level from here.

Dang, I thought for sure we'd be seeing it with this announcement.

...can't believe we still haven't regained service to The Bay yet!

We went from OAK and SFO daily, to none. Once again, that demand doesn't just evaporate into thin air. Airlines are slacking, that's all I can say.

It's interesting that UA retains service to LAX, but hasn't brought back SFO, which is a larger operation. I'm sure it will come back at some point.

SFO is a larger operation for them; but MSY's O&D to QLA is larger, and (I'd postulate, based on several factors) higher yielding, despite the competition.
