The 787 was made for an airport like SJC
. Anything bigger would be testing the yields on any route. NH
has no first class on their 787 and is/will receive subsidies for the next two to three years to stem losses.
/OZ would not venture into SJC
with their operations out of SFO
. Both carriers rely on their partners for connecting passengers.
/CA definitely not IMO. CX
and has taken The AA
philosophy that the will fly to where AA
works for CX
because of he large Chinese market and business ties. CA
relies heavily on UA
for connevting traffic, which SJC
does not have.
/CI would be a possibility. I would say BR
because they carry a lot of low yeild paxs on package deals through consolidators. The only thing that could help them is with the cargo from the tech industry. The only problem is that they fly mostly 777Ws across the Pacific and the plane is too much capacity for SJC
On a last note, a lot of people are saying how convenient SJC
is to the local area and the one hour or so drive to SFO
is inconveient. I live in Beijing and one hour or so to the airport is the norm with the traffic and I am still in the same City as the airport. All major cities around the World take time to get to the City center from their perspective airports. I assure you that most people here do not know where San Jose is and San Francisco is the known City in N. California. This is the same mentality airlines use. Look at NH
to put Silicon Valley in their title for name recognician.
