It was mentioned in enilria's thread that UA will be stopping MHT in October. Assuming AA's October schedule rolls into November, that will leave MHT with 11 daily flights - 3 CLT CR9, 2 PHL CR7, 1 ORD CR7, 4 BWI 737, 1 MDW 737. Very discouraging to see that, but with PWM growing quite a bit (it's ...

Re: The Rest of New England Aviation Thread (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2020

I'll give this a try too. BDL looks good for steady growth with most airlines, mostly with upgauging, but like the other Northeast airports, WN may be down a flight or tow by the end of the year. I think B6 will be up a flight to somewhere. If it isn't LAX then look south. Probably the most exciteme...

Re: Does WN Need New Strategy for New England?

WN doesn't need to be strong everywhere. Their business model just doesn't work well in the Northeast. No shame really. Can I qualify your statement? Their current business model doesn’t work well in the Northeast. It used to and they grew great guns. And then things changed. And if they are OK wit...

Re: Does WN Need New Strategy for New England?

They claimed to have entered BOS from a destination standpoint as their other strongholds across the country wanted access to BOS directly. They cut too much from PVD/MHT to fund BOS service. PVD/MHT should have kept or gotten service to places like DEN, BNA, STL, and HOU where there is substantial...

Re: Does WN Need New Strategy for New England?

Sometimes you have to consider how valuable something is to an airline. The traffic in the Northeast Region is less than six airports in the USA. 0.55% AL Alaskan Region. AK. 2.21% CECentral Region. IA, IL (Madison, St Clair, and Monroe counties), KS, MO, NE. 3.21% NE Northeast Region CT, ME, MA, N...

Re: Does WN Need New Strategy for New England?

WN also carried more passengers out of BOS than out of ALB, BUF, BDL, MHT, PHL, PIT, PWM, PVD, or ROC in the October 2018 - September 2019 time period. Not by much and Boston is a much larger city than any of them except Philly and I think they still run a lot of discounts to fill their planes. WN ...

Does WN Need New Strategy for New England?

A simple question with a few simple statistics has me wondering if WN needs to think outside the box to grow in New England. I downloaded monthly WN specific domestic passenger data from transtats.bts.gov for BDL, BOS, MHT, PVD and PWM. I considered each airport market individually and collectively ...
