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 would go against their business model to do that. Go on, tell us more about said business model. You know, since they bought Whole Foods. And become a television/movie production house. And bought a home security company. And started Prime Air. And started producing its own electronic devices. A...Jump to post
But this is essentially the new "business travel."
If I'm working remote, I can dart off for a week to a leisure destination, pretty much at my pleasure, "work" in the morning, play in the afternoon and evening for the week, and mark it down as only 2 PTO instead of 5.
A long talked-about and rumored to Florida would make sense. They've played the Chuck Schumer about as far as they can at this point and the move to Florida would bring about much needed lucrative financial incentives. A big sexy city isn't always needed for finding the right talent pool or the reso...Jump to post
We know that the two most over served hubs are Atlanta and Charlotte based on the metro areas they serve but what are the most underserved hubs based on the amount of flights vs the metro areas they serve. Well right away this is entirely subjective and posts are being made for the sake of posting....Jump to post
No one I know in West County has ever traveled out to BLV, so G4 isn’t known to them. Yes there’s F9, but I think NK will bring an ULCC that could eventually serve more markets. I think the market will embrace them. Just because *YOU* dont know somebody doesn't mean people don't do it. Show me the ...Jump to post
Allegiant has the same model out of BLV, and it's a success. Plus, I'm pretty sure a good portion of St. Louisans already know about NK and its reputation. I think that $90 flights to Pensacola will woo people regardless. I feel like most Florida and Vegas travelers know the deal with ULCC because ...Jump to post

Because they announce on Thursdays... B6 is probably announcing STL
MSP is a bit out of the way for most Midwestern connections, as others have mentioned, given its geographic location in the north of the country. That said, I have seen people flying STL-MSP-DEN, STL-MSP-LAX, and even STL-MSP-MDW. Yes, but it still hasn't historically entirely stopped people from d...Jump to post
