I wonder how they're going to fill their flights?
|Quoting TSRA (Reply 7):|
Next weeks flights from MCI are either full or oversold and advance bookings are very strong. I would not be to concerned with WN's presence on this route. YX and WN compete on many routes out of MCI and both do very, very well. I could very well see another flight to SEA (when a 717 comes available) or PDX in the near future.

Well my RT SEA-DCA flight is $299 including tax... that gets lots of attention and Spring break is in full swing. the flight went out full today, but the inbound was not that full. I wonder what my return to SEA will be tomorrow morning. I will give an update on the load. But flights are very full in Midwest these days. Good for them!
|Quoting Flyboy7974 (Reply 11):|
there was a press release I think on their webpage from the CEO earlier stating that the MCI-SEA has been one of their most successful route intiations in company history, so, bold comment in the first couple days of service, but he noted that bookings through first few months are above expectations greatly

What was up with the NW jet being towed toward the gate?
|Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 2):|
Their marketing department needs some work. Almost no one in Seattle has ever heard of Midwest, yet they know of Southwest which also serves SEA-MCI. YX has superior service, but no one knows anything about them. I wonder how they're going to fill their flights?
|Quoting AirTran737 (Reply 14):|
The plane was most likely parked on a remote stande and being tugged to the gate, much cheaper than firing up the blowers.

F9Animal - a new favorite of mine, you said Jet America and that is one of my all time favorites and one airline I collect and follow anything I can get my hands on, just missing one or two of their entire timetable collection and them I'm there, but I remember watching their planes during their short stay in BUR, and thinking, wow. 20 years later and still collect their items.
With that, is there anywhere on the web that for airlines that have come and gone, that I can pull up a history of the airline, like Jet America, a historical timeline featuring start/end dates for cities they served, a/c additions, route announcements, some of the bigger airlines have their own sites, but wasn't sure if for some of the smaller carriers there was anything, I'm looking to find the exact start and end dates of the Jet America service.

Well just an update...
After a disappointed "inaugural" day yesterday, the festivities finally happened, but a day late. As my flight landed at SEA an hour ago, we were welcomed with speeches and festivities. Water salute first... then fruits and cakes at the gate area... stickers from AS and bag tags from Sea-tac authority...
So here is the updated album...
PS. the loading is about 60-70% this morning. The return looked pretty full!
