Despite the rumblings from WN and AA fanboys, NK seems to be doing well at in the Metroplex (DAL/DFW)!
|Quoting airone1 (Reply 3):|
How many daily flights do they have at DFW now? 25-ish?
|Quoting ouboy79 (Reply 2):|
When you come in at such low fares it isn't hard to create a bit of a market. They also keep frequencies down so they aren't having to worry about a lot of unused capacity. DFW is now at 16 destinations. To my earlier point only 5 of those have more than 1 daily flight.

I wonder where the a/c availablility for these changes is coming from? I think I remember reading that they got their hands on a couple of additional planes recently so that is part of the answer but are there also some routes or frequencies being dropped in the system as well? (Always a good possibility with NK.)

Still, it's good for the Metroplex's airline market!

I didn't see anything about NK starting up PHL-DFW. Good for them.

Per their Q3 earnings call they have 2 A320s due this month, and they picked up 3 A319s on lease - 1 this month and 2 arriving in January.
Plus in 2013 they have 9 additional A320 planned
