Re: Breeze - News and Discussion Thread - 2021

I wonder as their fleet grows would they do a WN maneuver and add MHT to serve communities north of Boston like they are using PVD to cover communities south of Boston? I know that once more aircraft enter the Breeze fleet, more dots in New England will surely be added. I would have to believe that...

Any chance of AA trying MIA-MHT saturday only service? I think it could work if flight was timed for cruise connections and South American a Caribbean flight connections. A nemesis is Spirit, and I could surely see AA tweaking them with MIA-MHT service to siphon some of the Spirit MHT-FLL traffic. ...

Re: Spirit launches MKE today and already announces new routes
