Does National Plan On Serving Sea?

Mon Mar 26, 2001 11:34 am

Hey! Does anyone know if National Airlines plans on serving SEA? I read somewhere that it was on their 'list' of destinations, but heard nothing else about it. We could really use some competition on this route, with Alaska. Thanks for any comments!

"We could really use some competition on this route, with Alaska."

Alaska has 9 weekday non-stop flights (goes to 8 4/1/01) on 737s and MD-80s

Southwest has 3 flights on 737s

America West has 2 flights on a 737 and A319

I'm not sure what the load factors are on these flights, but it doesn't really seem like an underserved market. With the existing competition, would financially-strapped N7 really want to start new service on this route?

Thanks for all of that. I was unaware of SW and America West's service to LAS. Yes, I doubt that N7 would enter this market, but like I said, I read somewhere that it was on their list of destinations. Can anyone confirm anything? What are some other future destinations for N7 (National)? Thanks again.
