Frequencies And Aircraft

Wed Aug 30, 2000 4:25 am

A interesting question...

Since a international route are flown by more than one airline and many frequencies are provided (eg. Taipei-Hong Kong, more than 20 flights a day and served by 4-6 airlines [sounds too much for an 1.5hrs flight]),Which route do you think the airline operator should reduce the frequencies and switch from small jets to jumbo jets?

I think that maybe the jfk to ord route could use B747-400.

I don't particulary think they should be switched if Californian airports can get their act together, but in the near future LAX-SFO will need to get jumbos and in certainly sometime possible candidates in California are LAX-Bay Area, LAX-SAN, and SAN-Bay Area.

Continental currently has 11 daily flights between Houston and Austin. They are going to start operating 757s on the routes.

NW has 8 daily DTW-AMS flights. They have jumbos D10, 747 but i dont think detroit needs 8 flights a day to amsterdam. I know, i know, the alliance, but still, 8 flights a day??

I find it a little better for higher density routes to be flown more often with smaller aircraft
Dallas-Houston has a lot of business travelers from both cities that will go to the other for the day for business, those routes are flown more often with smaller aircraft(Md80,757,727,crj,737) so that way if joe who lives in houston has to go to dallas for the day,he can travel on a smaller jet but he will be able to find a flight that suits his times,if they were served with 747's,767's and 777's,more than likely he would have to spend the night in dallas or something like that. but if i did have to choose a couple of routes,
DFW/DAL-IAH/HOU
DFW-ORD
SFO-LAX
JFK-LAX
JFK-ORD
YYZ-YVR and YUL,
just a couple....

I think, you are confused. I read OAG shows. These are not 8 flights a day. NW partners KL. You count NW and KL flights. They can't fly two planes at the same time for same route. They use one plane for NW and KL partners two different flights numbers. They're four flights daily between DTW and AMS. Get it?

Thanks..

To Big777jet

You are right with 4 daily NW(operated) flights but there is also the fifth daily flight which is operated by KL (NW-codeshare).

These are:

NW 041 08.00-10.30 with DC-10
NW 067 10.45-13.05 with B-747
KL 617 14.20-16.35 with B-747
NW 049 16.30-19.00 with B-747
NW 059 18.50-21.15 with DC-10
