So permanent cuts are: ATL-BOS
Interesting. This should make life a bit easier for B6 and NK...
Also, WN's last international services from ATL (CUN and PUJ) have gone seasonal. Perhaps these suspensions provide additional opportunities for the ULCCs (F9 and/or NK) to further expand at ATL...
So permanent cuts are: MCI-BOS
Wow, further WN retreat from the Northeast. First there was massive cuts at places like ISP, MHT and PHL. Then a complete withdrawal from EWR. Now BOS loses all nonstop service not just to IND but also ATL, MCI and MKE. Meanwhile, BOS-AUS/DAL have gone seasonal. I'm sure DL is thrilled. Will be interesting to see if B6 sees any opportunities here too...
So permanent cuts are: OAK-CMH
This service paved the way for Columbus to get nonstop SFO service on UA. Perhaps it even helped CMH get AS to SEA. Then again, certainly not surprising considering how much OAK service has been on the chopping block due to the MAX groundings...
So permanent cuts are: CUN-LAX
The subpar experience for arriving international pax must really be taking a toll on WN's international services from LAX. Then again, WN seems to be quite disappointed by California-Mexico (all OAK/SJC/SNA-Mexico services are now seasonal) and LAX-heartland (and for that matter, OAK-heartland). Moreover, LAX-IND/MKE/TPA have gone seasonal. I realize there is significant competitive pressure at LAX from AA, AS, DL and UA - but are all these LAX reductions making room for LAX-Hawaii services?!?
So permanent cuts are: DAL-JAX
Whoa. In addition to these cuts, DAL-BOS/CHS/CLE/CRP/DTW/HRL/PDX/PHL/SEA/SNA have all been reduced to seasonal services. Have AS and WN reached some sort of truce at DAL, where AS has thrown in the towel on DAL-DCA/LGA/SAN/SJC and WN has more or less ceded DAL-PDX/SEA/SFO to AS? I realize AA must be a very tough competitor in the Dallas-Orange County market, but perhaps AS could fill the void on the DAL-SNA route if it is not simply turning scarce DAL gate space over to DL?
So permanent cuts are: FLL-JAX
Another victory for B6.
So permanent cuts are: LGA-MCO
I didn't realize WN even flew this route. EWR-MCO is gone, and so too is the last nonstop WN service to Orlando from a preferred NYC airport?!?
So permanent cuts are: AUS-SFO
Seeing California bear the brunt of the network cuts wasn't very surprising.. but seeing so much service to Texas get cut is quite shocking. AUS-BOS/CUN/RDU have all gone seasonal.. in addition to AUS-EWR ending when the Newark station is closed. Unfortunately I believe AUS is just outside the LGA perimeter...
