Re: San Francisco Bay Area Aviation Thread - 2019

I don't see another carrier entering BOS-SJC when B6 is adding an A321 on top of A320. It's not that large of a market. I disagree. How many nonstops are there on SFO-BOS, and on how many airlines? How much of that traffic is potential leakage of both business and leisure from SJC area? B6 has had ...

Re: AA Announces AUS-BOS/SJC/SJD, One-Off BOS-SDF/OMA/AGS + More

As I said in the other thread before it was deleted for some reason, these routes are going to get bloody. AUSBOS will have four carriers offering ~1000 seats in a market that currently is around 500 PDEW with limited flow opportunities. And that’s assuming no competitive response. SJC might be a l...
