I've got a few questions about Spirit's recent Dallas-Myrtle Beach route. I know that AE tried the route a few years ago and failed, but NK has managed to keep it going, which means it is probably doing well. I was flying out of MYR in the beginning of September and the flight came in while I was there. From the amount of people that disembarked the flight, and the amount of people in the gate area, it seemed noth the inbound flight as well as the outbound flight were both full.
So my questions are:
1. Does anybody know how the flight does on a regular basis?
2. How come AE (AA) wasn't able to make the route work with an RJ but NK is able to make it work with an a319? Now, I know the NK flight isn't daily, but you would think that DFW would provide enough connections to AA to fill a flight? I guess yields are a major factor, but still...
3. If the route is doing well, what are the chance of seeing the flight's frequency increase?
Any insight is greatly appreciated!!!
