AUS/RDU-DTW has no LCC competition, I wanted to pick on that one because DTW seems to be successful for Spirit. I do want to see BNA over all though, that would be an absolute priority for me if I was a Network Analyst.flymco753 wrote:If it’s 4 new cities I can put my bets on AUS, RDU, IND and STL.
Can I ask why RDU over BNA? While I think NK will come to them eventually, I would be somewhat baffled if they got NK before BNA. RDU already has decent ULCC operations, while BNA, aside for some token F9 operations, is lacking in the ULCC department. Also, all of those airports minus STL have G4 as well, while BNA does not. BNA would be among the most next logical adds for NK, considering lack of competition among ULCC's and its status as the fastest growing airport of its size.
By that logic, STL shouldn't be added then, as WN could put more pressure there (and bigger as its operations at STL are larger than BNA).
