Sun Country. Add E170s. Create a hub similar to MSP at MKE to focus on being the airline of the Midwest. Add Spirit style big seats for front two rows on the 738s. Add WiFi.Jump to post
Everybody should see the number of DOT complaints Allegiant has had in the recent ATCRs. It is insane for the number of passengers they carry.Jump to post

A big flaw is the lack of ticketing agreements in the event of IRROPs. Spirit has pulled out the corporate business card to buy many tickets on other carriers this week.Jump to post
I think times have changed alot since independence air . I think it's much easier for a new airline then It was then. I think the legacies have sunk in quality and offerings are so similar to LCCs that most flyers are alot less loyal then they were in the day of independence air. Also miles are way...Jump to post

In this environment? Not likely. And Aeromexico would be a longshot even in normal times.
At one of the AA subsidiaries they put in a bonus system begging employees not to call out sick and pick up an extra 40 hours each month through the summer. They also are denying most vacation requests for Gate and Ramp agents. At CLT AA outsourced wheelchair assistance to Prospect which pays $9hr ...Jump to post
Sun Country to begin 4x weekly flights to PIE from MSP. Will compliment service to TPA. Starts Nov 25.Jump to post
More cuts for AA at RDU. They can’t make up their mind what they want for the station.
Also, big increase for DEN-CLT on AA. 7 flights is a lot.

You forget SY has AUS-CUN.
Do you think it is likely we will get JetBlue?
SY would make sense off the IND tweet. Sun like emoji and horizon. But I thought they were focusing on cargo. But I really have no clue. As people said in the SAT thread - SY doesn’t announce on Mondays though, nor can I recall any real carrier announcing at 6am... lol Not true about Mondays. Not t...Jump to post
It’s not on here but SY has discontinued most of its MSN routes. Down to MSN-MCO/RSW/MSP/SEA.Jump to post
SY maybe, although they are private so don't release financials. Their CEO said they are building cash. I'm sure the Amazon flying is propping up their pax service though. https://thepointsguy.com/news/ceo-chat-sun-country-airlines-fears-a-rough-september-as-travel-uptick-plateaus/ SY had an operat...Jump to post

Seem like June 27th is only available for AUS-SAT bookable route. I was hoping this is daily route.... I did see that too. I tried seeing if you could do AUS-SAT on SY and then come back to Austin on Amtrak but the times just don't line up. Looks like Sun Country is flying this route a few days in ...Jump to post

DOT also says airlines must process refunds in a timely manner - which it defines as within 7 business days if a passenger paid by credit card, and within 20 days if a passenger paid by cash or check.

Good morning enilria and thanks for the hard work. DL’s early June cuts on coastal hubs + focus cities. In May they made another cut closer in. Again, SEA has far away the most service with LAX trailing quite a bit. I think it’s clear at this point DL is fully intend on fighting it out at AS and ge...Jump to post
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Sun Country (SY). They appear to have suspended all operations at MSN. The new service they announced (e.g. MSN-PDX) isn't happening, and all of their already scheduled flights have been cancelled. (source: Dane County Regional Airport departure and arrival screen...Jump to post
Wish they had to give the government every share they purchased through buybacks since the AA/US merger. Why? Those shares are retired. We know the shares are retired; so it's a mute point. However, rajincajun01 most likely meant that AA (and the others as well) should give to the government that's...Jump to post

Sun Country begins freighter flights next month. Receiving a fleet of 10 Boeing 737-800BCF. They are being mod in China. I don't think they will get any before mid to late summer.

I've heard the rumor that VS is interested in SAN and AUS, BA is doing quite well on these two routes and I believe there's a room for VS to step in. If it’s Austin, that’ll be pretty insane.

I've hoped for a few years to see AS jump in but have given up. They don't seem the least bit interested and have had opportunities but remained on the sidelines. (When they pulled SFO-RDU just last August, why couldn't they have just moved the plane down the coast and started SAN-RDU instead? I'm ...Jump to post
Any chance AS could restart PDX-DEN and SFO-DEN? As a former AS agent in DEN, unlikely. SFO won’t happen with UA doing 12x daily, including a couple widebodies. PDX was close to happening on E175 about two years ago, but was pulled just before being announced. DEN-ANC would be a great addition for ...Jump to post
[twoid][/twoid] Is AS starting PDX-PIT? I saw a couple of social media posts from AS about new nonstop service but can’t find any flights, nor a press release. Social media team jump the gun a bit?
