That said, the C/D concourses are a royal dump, even with all of the refurbishments that have been made. The facility is embarrassing and I can’t quite understand why MWAA/UA are dragging their feet.

Those of you toeing the Gary Kelly line, the April loads are available from the government and each month will bring new data. Eventually the fare data will be available and the truth will be known.
Concrete delays are a nationwide issue at this point from my understanding., or at least it is a Mountain West regional issue. There is a lack of truck drivers available for both the concrete pouring and the removal of old materials (think dump trucks). Which means that if airliners knows this then...Jump to post
There are three main reasons that the Great Hall project was necessary, they are: 1.

Their DEN hub is about 66% local (on passenger segments), that is above average for the system which is about 63% now.

Current interest rates airlines are paying are record lows. United's ROIC is probably in the 10-15% range (I think they stopped publishing the number but you could calculate it).

I have a hard time believing ATL is higher margin than MSP which has much higher average paid fares. MSP has *marginally* higher average paid fares, but it's average length of haul is longer, so when you adjust for that it is a minimal variance. However, ATL has considerably lower average costs due...Jump to post
DTW/MSP are way above system average. Wall Street says 20+ margins full year. ATL is probably 15 or so
During the Q and A they mentioned that BOS will be expanded to about 200 daily flights. Didn't realize they were going beyond 170 or so.

Why MSY has experienced an explosion in ULCC service (its CPE has gone down significantly compared to previous years) Interesting.
