I'm not sure if this indeed is entirely the case, but posting a profit because an airline got government support, to me isn't a profit. If that is the case, the term profit is misleading.

I look at a route like BWI-PNS which WN is flying 5x weekly in May, but that increase hasn’t been rolled into the June schedule yet.
