This is the kind of route (much like some of their west coast routes ex-IND) where YX (and probably US as well) will enjoy a significant yield premium
|Quoting CitrusCritter (Reply 8):|
FL's looking for vacation travelers who won't pay a premium on this route.
|Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 3):|
Since NW is now a YX "friend".. will we see NW offer complimentary service PHX-ATL..
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 9):|
Can they make money with bad yields? I wonder if they need to remove J from some of their aircraft if their business plan is leisure routes.
|Quoting CitrusCritter (Reply 11):|
They account for a few wealthier flyers -- often businessmen on routes that are mostly vacation travel -- who will buy a more expensive seat for the comfort.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 12):|
Do you have any idea what FL's LF in J is like? I don't fly them enough to make a good guess.
|Quoting ATLAaron (Reply 15):|
Are passengers in MKE really going to fly FL?
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 16):
The extremely price-conscious passengers will, just like in every other market FL serves. Unfortunately, FL is unlikely to pick up many high-yielding passengers at MKE.
|Quoting BP1 (Reply 14):|
Thank you YX. Any additional service and competition on any routes to and from PHX is appreciated. Now if we could get some competition on non-stop PHX-BOS (not PVD) but PHX-BOS that would be ideal.
|Quoting CitrusCritter (Reply 17):|
FL can also afford to lose out on high yield passengers if it forces YX's yields to plummet.
