I was also struck by WN
's 1.5% decline in RPM in November, on top (or on the bottom )of a 2.4% decline in October. Are 717's already being pulled off line for the modifications before WN
delivers them to Delta? Although load factor in November dropped by a couple points. Perhaps the higher and higher fuel prices are affecting the discreottionary travel budgets of many of WN
's traditional customers or perhaps some of these customers have moved over to the Spirits and Allegiants of the world?
