Re: XNA (Northwest Arkansas) Aviation 2020

Interesting that XNA may rival LIT at the end of the year if the trend continues. I still think WN is a long-shot in the short term. If not, then I see F9 retreating and G4 cutting back. I'd assume WN would drop a minimum of 450 seats into the market per day...maybe closer to 600-750 depending on th...

Re: XNA (Northwest Arkansas) Aviation 2019

IMO, (business/corporate) air travel demand based around the "biggest" vendors/companies to WM is actually fairly limited given most of them have offices in the area. And the need for face to face interactions from anyone outside of the local offices is fairly infrequent and sporadic. (Obv...

Re: Will WN Ever Consider SGf?

Good evening everyone! I'm on a WN flight from TPA to MCI and on one of their newer 738s (a beautiful and comfortable aircraft). We just passed over the Springfield area and I can't help but wonder if WN will ever consider flying to SGF? I know BKG was a disaster, even with subsidies, but surely th...

Longest CRJ route I was on was SLC-XNA on OO. Fortunately, only had 13 pax so wasn't tight on the -200. Flew to DEN on way out.


That had to be brutal. Fortunately it'd be a CR7 at the smallest given DL's self-imposed limits on the -200s if it comes back.

Re: XNA (Northwest Arkansas) Aviation 2019

There are some more nonstop routes that could be added by US3 carriers out of XNA, including the following: AA - XNA-PHX (PHX will be the only remaining AA hub city that AA doesn't serve nonstop from XNA once AA starts XNA-MIA nonstop service) DL - XNA-DTW, XNA-SLC UA - XNA-IAD (IAD is only one of ...

Re: DL A220 DCA

I'm curious if they fill in more of the frequencies on already announced routes or if they spread them out thinly so they can announce new routes. IE, IAH-MSP in February only has 1 of 5 on the 220, but IAH-LGA is 5 of 5 on the 220.
