Re: SQ signs MOU with MH to expand codesharing, among other areas of co-operation

The co-operation will increase premium traffic for the SIA Group, which reported its highest revenue ever last year and make MH even less relevant. Mind you this is one of the better scenarios for the struggling airline.

It’s not a perfect analogy, but isn’t this something like ISP/HVN-PHL where AA has carved out a small but apparently profitable niche? ORH is long enough that it might catch some business O&D, and PHL is more or less on the way to most domestic places folks want to go from ORH. Could HPN be next?

Looking at the DL route maps I count 6 TATL destinations (including partners) from BOS and 24 from JFK. It's an indication DL attracted few TATL bound PHL passengers at the right price. Starting BOS-PHL is all about B6. DL has to offer PHL to successfully compete at BOS. It's a strategic move with ...
