Congrats to JAX for breaking their all time total pax record.

There are still more adds that could be made by WN at JAX, including the following:
  • Adding JAX-CMH, JAX-IND, JAX-MCI, JAX-LAX, JAX-MKE, and JAX-STL nonstop service
  • Adding Saturday-only JAX-DCA nonstop service
  • Increasing JAX-MDW from 1 daily nonstop to at least 2 daily nonstops

I would imagine most of that increase can be attributed to F9 and NK.

To Jplatts’ point, it certainly isn’t WN, who has stayed pretty steady, as have the legacies.

NK just started in late Nov. There have been some legacy mainline increases such as DL JFK & DTW.

DL runs a lot of 757's through JAX, even to ATL

Love to see these record threads.

Would also love to see WN bring back JAX-MSY-xyz, either that or NK.

DL has always done well in JAX. They even flew 767/L10s frequently when somebody service was frequent from ATL-MCO/TPA/FLL/PBI. DL will continue to send their 757s along with A321/739s since they have high demand there for those who transit via ATL. It is nice to see DL increasing other markets as competition moves in.

Perhaps we will see DL add A221 3-4x/week on LAX-JAX-LAX.?

Good to see these numbers, I suspect the Jax aviation authority is making contributions to NK and Allegiant for their additional service. I doubt any international service will come anytime soon, easy to connect through ATL or JFK on Delta, Philly or Charlotte on AA and UA via EWR to international destinations. Possible weekly European service one day from JAX. Hopefully, once Delta completes the LAX terminal they will restore JAX/LAX nonstop, leaving LA around 7:30 pm and returning to LA at 7:30AM a few days per week. Doubt UA would ever do JAX/SFO anytime soon, connection via Denver since they offer mainline service nonstop from JAX to Denver. Also offered on WN via Denver.
