Re: MHT announce new carrier 16 June

On another note, it seems like NK is continuing to just go after WN on these Florida markets. As NK continues to add capacity on smaller EastCoast or middle of the country to Florida markets, what does that do to the legacy model where they rely on connection through ATL and CLT? I'm sure that a lo...

Most people in the BTV area who want that are probably already going to PBG which has RSW and FLL.

That's an odd time to launch as it's the time of year when the tourism demand drops off a cliff and the weather gets disgusting. That said It it was inevitable as they fly to every other major Florida airport aside from JAX and SRQ. I used to think that too but there really is no cliff. Traffic is ...
