What is so disgraceful about the Judge's decision.

By the way, this quote from the end of the article is perfect in soooo many ways:
“You can’t just go out and lash out at people, just because that’s the way you feel, at your job. Even as a human being you shouldn’t do that. You should have a little bit of compassion.''

I don't really see their projections - I think they are maxed out to be honest. Where are they going to add 30% more capacity? Frequencies? Might the 380 be on the way out earlier than we thought?

The question is now why use a NMA or B787/A330 when you can offer more frequencies and the same CASM with an A223? I think that this also opens up a lot of thinner US transcon point to point routes.

They are fine. Just like any other airline in my eyes. Prefer WN because of the free bags and generous change policies, but will fly anyone when it makes sense. Have flown AA, UA, DL, G4, WN, F9, HA, and AS all in the last two years. The differences are pretty minimal if you are in Y.Jump to post

Naming rights doe nothing for the bottom line. Little brand equity benefits. It's expensive and multi-year requirements make them onerous. Allegiant apparently disagrees.
