If my purchase prices don't mean jack without info on "AP window, fare class, etc," then neither does your consistent posting of load factors and trying to make a case of it. And "what usual business travel" was being supplemented? Have you been living in a cave or a remote Pacif...Jump to post
I flew from Indianapolis 3 times in March. Asheville, Dallas/Ft Worth, and Tampa at roughly $110, $90, and $95 roundtrip, respectively. However, if you want to be particular about it and say March Madness is to credit for all of it - then the numbers are all skewed since March Madness is a one-off e...Jump to post
Allegiant really is able to get some incredible performance out of their markets. Looking at places such as Minot with 40-something thousand people in the area and they're filling planes a few times a week to Las Vegas and Phoenix and turning an airport, such as Asheville, into a boom town for them....Jump to post
If one really wants to get out of Penn Station, trek through midtown with luggage clear over and up to Grand Central ... then this is the hell for you. I know he said he wanted to grab dinner in Manhattan - but zoiks!
A much easier connection to the local New Haven Line could be made at New Rochelle.
For STL. June will have 78% of the seats it did in 2019. With as full as planes have been I wouldn’t be surprised to see it over 80% based on passengers. BLV will be over 2019, by quite a bit. 2019- 32 flights a week 2021 - 46 flights a week. Potential to be best month ever. BLV is going to be busy...Jump to post
The direct Amtrak connection from EWR to Stamford is going to be a bit tricky as GalaxyFlyer said but if you're considering stopping in Manhattan to get dinner anyway EWR isn't all that bad, you could just fly there directly, then take NJ Transit into Penn Station (they have 3-4 hourly trains going...Jump to post
Trying to fly into anything and relying on car services or Lyft/Uber sounds like a total nightmare. Plus, good luck getting a driver to take you that far. I'd say fly into EWR and take Amtrak right up to Stamford. New York is one of a few places (oddly, Detroit is another) where car services work l...Jump to post
This just shows me again that NK is WN's biggest threat. WN doesn't know how to deal with NK. NK knows that the WN dominated markets are the easiest ones for them to expand in. Exactly. I’ve been holding back this comment for years, but there’s clearly now enough data to support that statement. In ...Jump to post
Looks like they will need another gate. The CUN & MCO departure times are both 7am. RSW is 6am and that's early for leisure. That’s perfect for leisure My own preference is later in the morning. 6am gets you there by 9am and then it's a full 6 hours before you can check into your hotel. For tho...Jump to post
The great deal with community is being the closest airport to some of the welathiest zip codes around the country. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. And skipping the drive down to LaGuardia and up to Boston! It'll be interesting to see what happens up the road in Providence as a result of this.....Jump to post

As I best remember-
Southwest typically focuses on national wires, publications, services and ownership groups and everyone works out of Dallas.
American, United, and Delta all have comms staffers in regions who probably have generated a lot more local contacts, etc. etc.
International gates are tricky. It seems no solution really pleases everyone. If you renovate them in C and make something great - you really leave the biggest carrier out of the mix. if you renovate them in E and serve your biggest carrier, you leave the other carriers out of the mix. If you do som...Jump to post
Many things would quickly add up: This is all in theory, of course- Time - I would suspect affected airlines would have a clause requiring at least a year notice for the move Advertising/Marketing - Of the changes would have to be picked up by Southwest including paid press/media campaigns and on-pr...Jump to post
I’d suspect B6 wants to see how NK does in STL. I think there’s other reasons behind the scenes as well, but can’t say what those are. B6 to JFK would be a good add and provide a nice connection to their new London flights. Their new international Mint product is going to be nice and less expensive...Jump to post
No idea how this notion ever came here that IND-BOS was one of the most profitable routes for Delta. From IND or BOS it certainly was, especially after WN dropped it. They were getting great yields from CVG & IND to BOS, comparatively these routes were way above average, especially given how co...Jump to post
Saying "all airlines need to be in the same terminal because it is inefficient," is strictly your opinion. And going big isn't going to happen. The point of the plan I laid out is simple - 1. Use of existing infrastructure, both building and field, wherever possible, streamlining costs and...Jump to post
A concourse rebuild is pretty easy and works out existing infrastructure, which saves a lot of time and money. Think of how the Denver Airport terminal is laid out with its Concourse A. You start with what is left of B - that becomes your primary point from the main terminal out to a proposed line c...Jump to post
Seems to be pretty active among airlines, even the regional carriers. A search pulls up some articles about the majors, and some regionals, doing more to push for this in their hiring practices. You could probably go right to the careers page of air carriers and even find more links or statements ab...Jump to post
Nothing like a website of aviation enthusiasts wishing every airline would just merge into one already giving you one choice to fly anywhere at a price you can never afford because there's a lack of choice and one simple color scheme to look at for the rest of time.
It's catty, it's juicy, it's down right delicious! A beauty pageant winner dethroned on stage.
