for kicks... can be defined as:
an airline entity that existed in a regulated environment prior to 1978 that, in collection with it's peer lagacy entities, spent billions of dollars and dedicated trillions of manhours building scheduling long-lasting paradigms, airport improvements, establishing consumer pricing and revenue control models, and partnering in the development of countless aircraft designs that still hold the test of time today.........in essence laying the framework of the USA's commerical aviation infrastructure.....
.......only to be trounced and beaten silly by post-deregulation carriers that did none of this, yet reap the benefits while they drag said legacies into the mire.
I know, overblown - but thought it was humorous. FYI, I consider WN
a legacy carrier whether WN
does or not. "Legacy" doesn't have to mean "cheap" - to me it means the definition of the word legacy itself - in short - "one that brings history." But I guess it's just a matter of opinion. I think the term was made up on Wall Street anyway.
