Re: Alaska to announce new Paine Field route this week, along with other changes (June 3rd, 2019)

I always felt like PDX-PAE was a weird route to do 4x daily. The only way it made sense was if the connection opportunities to east coast i.e. IAD, ATL, FLL, etc. were available, but they're not. Why would anyone want to connect from PAE to go to California when the E175 can do it fine and when PAE...

Re: Alaska Airlines California Strategy

Alaska Airlines over the last couple of years have been on a marketing blitz to be the premier “go-to” airline for Californians. As we have seen, they have grown SMF, SJC, SAN, LAX, SFO (debatable) to support this strategy. However, I feel like there is a huge flaw in their strategy. CA and its res...

Re: Alaska to announce new Paine Field route this week, along with other changes (June 3rd, 2019)

It occurred to me that the times of the new PSP flights are very nicely suited to hotel stays: arrive the Springs ~3pm and after the turn there, the return flight leaves just before 4! So those folks who don't have homes in the desert are being nicely accommodated for their pay-to-stay arrangements....

Re: Delta transitions BOS to Hub status, names SJC, BNA, and AUS as new focus cities

:checkmark: 'tim' . I, as my screen name might imply, am very familiar with leakage to a mega-airport to the north! And I am also quite familiar with underserved airports. My airport has (finally) reached a point where I feel service (and competition) exist at decent levels. But then we expect to se...

Re: Delta transitions BOS to Hub status, names SJC, BNA, and AUS as new focus cities

The first new route that came to my mind is SJC-BOS. That market seems really underserved. AA once had 4x on that route. I’m surprise AS hasn’t added it yet. Presumably if there was large unmet demand on SJC-BOS, B6 would have expanded from their sole red eye at some point. SFO-BOS seems overserved...
