Re: Brawl on Spirit AL flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta 7/23/21

If it's an ULCC crowd thing why don't we hear about these type of incidents on G4? G4 attracts a different crowd than NK/F9, mainly retirees and families. You have to remember that G4 doesn't serve a lot of the big cities that some of these people come from. People from smaller cities tend to respe...

Re: What Gives with Jetblue's OTP?

Sorry, you've totally lost me. Of course it's easier to source a spare aircraft or crew at a giant hub like CLT than at a small outstation like BDL or HPN. That's neither odd nor unique to AA or B6. You've also missed the point because it's not what you wanted to hear. Guess I shouldn't take you se...

What you might start to see are more hybrid models that aren't full service carriers but aren't ULCC's either, airlines that are like B6/WN such as Avelo and Breeze.
