Re: Demise of WN in the PNW

Hawaii flying is not primarily O&D. Perhaps LA and Vegas could be made that way, but . . As WN gets started in Hawaii, they need to fly from the places that have the most connections (OAK) or the most O&D (LAX). A case could be made for flying from ONT, but it doesn't make sense to fly from...

Re: Demise of WN in the PNW

We are seeing similar things network wide. Flights are being trimmed everywhere to reflect O&D patterns. In general, flights between big cities are getting more connections as those with less ability to support nonstops on an O&D basis drop. This may be enhanced by WN's aircraft getting larg...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

I couldn't find the reference, but if they do consider the MHT fees, then it tells me MHT incentives (if any) weren't enough. Can't get much cheaper than PSM though. No substantial airport passenger services and bargain seeker clientele. G4 counts on ancillary fees and services for flight profits. ...
