Re: WN's Next Schedule Extension Due Out Sept 27, 2018

WN also is rethinking growth plans for 2019/20 due to the rise in fuel prices. And possibly start retirement of the early 700NG airframes sometime next year. I only expect normal bulk flying extended with maybe one or 2 additional new nonstop markets. Flyguy I think these are the reasons people don...

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...

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. ...

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

To be fair to the 'rest' of New England, UA is sending an A320 and an A319 to PWM, and (2) A319s + one A320 to BTV. Count me among the folks who would PREFER to fly from MHT but who ALSO have come to grips with using Logan. I live as far south as you can be in New Hampshire (my two acres goes right...

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

The problem is people do not want to fly from Manchester There is some truth to this, but I have to ask. How could one of the world's largest airlines not be able to fill a few planes between a 2 million passenger market and the worlds busiest airport? Answer, don't give them what they want. Yes, P...

Both MHT and PVD are beyond being able to restore to peak levels if WN backs off of BOS, but adding even two flights to both from LAS an...

Re: WN to Boston...the right move in hindsight?

I agree with those that say WN needs to be in BOS for network completeness and I also agree that they can't put the genie back in the bottle at MHT and PVD.
