Neeleman already has staff on the ground, and there are 5 people in their Network Planning Department. I do know he has someone from Allegiant heading up much of that, and they have hired a guy who worked at America West who was instrumental in their Nite Flite Program, they also have someone who wo...Jump to post
Thank you Enilria for posting! Woah DL giving PHL-SLC from multiple flights daily? I'm happy Delta giving phl little tiny love. I'm wondering if this is to slowly enforce the SLC hub Thanks :) SLC still has very little ULCC service (oddly). I wonder if they are shoring up some at risk markets. Ther...Jump to post
They are beating Neeleman to the punch, and are in the intial stages of starting a Moxy type operation to those cities that have been left behind, but can support limited services to close in airports where people are glad to get the service.

This is great news. Perhaps we might see some new markets open up with these. Any time frame on when Cape Air will rake the first delivery?Jump to post

Ain't gonna happen people, this operation is on life support already. Give it maybe 2 months and then its over. Don't want to see that but how many have tried and failed? Maybe they can get a contract with a major airline and provide service to these cities on a CPA or FFD. They still have about 18...Jump to post

Their EAS ops and Charter Ops are definitely providing subsidy to their CLD ops. I was in SJC the other day and 4 souls got off. They really need to get an Interline agreement with somebody. They lost the Alamosa CO bid (which originally the city wanted them to get it) because they didn't have inter...Jump to post
I talked to a California pacific personnel today, they said that the flights are getting better as they go on. They wouldn’t tell me the exact numbers but they did say SJC has the best load factors followed LAS, AZA, and finally RNO with an average of 8 people per flight . Hopefully they will make ...Jump to post

What many do not realize is that in order for the addition of a flight line to be viable there are many factors other than "it would be nice to see this addition", or a particular airline has "every market covered except this one". Some markets are viable but have constraints on...Jump to post
California Pacific Lost their EAS bid at Alamosa CO mainly because they don't have an interline agreement with United Airlines.

I think the core problem is alot of VX flyers are sad their airline is gone. They have and are moving to WN as their main carrier. The vx product and experience is pretty different than AS. They won't dehub either, rightsize or shift to more proftible routes. Yes. Everyone is sad their favorite is ...Jump to post
The reason all the SGU service is dropped at that time, is because the airport will be closed for aprox 4 months, to redo runway problems. Issues from the original contractor that built the airport.

Im sure congress has figured Parkers intention into this. I would imagine there will be a provision that non-refundable tickets can be transferred to another name and would not be useless, as the airline will re-sell the seat.Jump to post

Sure some of these have just vapored away... but there doens't seem to be much news about them.
The article states that back in May the CFO stated that the highest priority would be PHX and SJC and that one company in the Carlsbad area had over 1400 flights (I would assume that meant seats) to PHX alone last year. It also stated they are hiring flight crews station personell and mechanics to b...Jump to post
So far as I know, JAC is the only airport of its size in the US that relies exclusively on hard stands. I have seen 10 or more airliners there at one time, including 757s, but no air bridges. The terminal is nice, so it isn’t a lack of funds. Is this arrangement because of the seasonality of demand...Jump to post
There is a market in many Western and Pacific Northwest Communities that could support service with aircraft such as the P2012 or the Cessna SkyCourier 408.

Do the "at risk" flights that SkyWest operate as DL Connection Flights constrict the number of seats the aircraft may have?

Would love to see routes out of ICT servicing some of the routes that Delta and United hold market shares on.

On a recent WN flight from SLC-LAX, as the cabin was being prepared, the pilot called all staff to the front. All were women, and she announced we were on a "manless" operated flight. Was kinda cute, and everyone on board seemed to enjoy the distraction.Jump to post
Southwest started as that alternative airports airline, and Neeleman likely thinks the time is ripe for another to try it. Fort Worth, Concord Regional, Gary, or a dozen others have potential in growing urban areas. And someone needs to take on the political monopoly Delta has bought in Atlanta. Se...Jump to post
(Moxy will never be the airlines name) One of Davids big things he says in his speeches is that alluding to mis-information is sometimes the best information one can offer.
