FAQ

AS OF JULY 2018 THERE ARE CHANGES TO THE FORMAT OF THIS REPORT...SEE BELOW

WHAT IS THIS REPORT?
This compares departures for sale THIS WEEK for the stated period versus what was for sale LAST WEEK...prior year departures are now shown in brackets e.g. [0].

THE SCHEDULES SHOWN HERE CHANGE AFTER YOU POST???
-To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often---Winston Churchill. This is data the carriers filed at the point in time it was captured. It's changed since then. You are just going to have to live with it.

HOW DO I READ IT?
XXX-YYY DEC 4>5[4] JAN 4>5[4]
XXX Departure IATA code, YYY Arrival IATA code, Month, Average Departures/Day over the month for sale as of last week, Average Departures/Day over the month for sale as of this week, in brackets is the number of Average Departures/Day over the month that were scheduled one year earlier. So, it means that the listed airline changed the frequency between the two airports to add from 4 to 5 roundtrips in December and January. It also means that there were 4 roundtrips the prior year in each month. No other months were changed. I average two directions.

WHAT ABOUT CARRIERS THAT DON'T PUBLISH A SCHEDULE 9 MONTHS IN ADVANCE?
NEW CHANGE-Sometimes airlines do not load their schedules for the entire 330 day standard sales window. Southwest and many LCCs load their schedules for as little as 5 months into the future. When these flight are extended into a new sales month, it becomes a "schedule change". Previously, I have manually deleted these in many cases and replaced them with a Year-Over-Year compare. Effective immediately, this will now change. When a flight is loaded from 0 departures X departures, where X was the same the prior year, the record will not be shown. For example, if Delta loaded ATL-EGE MAR 0>1(1), it would not be shown because this additional flight does not represent a real year-over-year addition. Similarly, if B6 extended their schedule a record like this ATL-BOS JUL 0>4(4) would not be shown. It will be shown if the flight frequency changed from the prior year. So B6 ATL-BOS JUL 0>3(4) would be shown. If a partial month was loaded in a core schedule that became a full schedule month, those changes may be shown under this logic. For example, WN BNA-SEA 0.3>2(2). Because only a fraction of the month was previously loaded for sale, these changes will not be filtered out. I may, however, manually remove them to declutter.

HOW ARE THE DAILY DEPARTURES CALCULATED?
This report uses total operations for the month listed, divided over the days in the month. The following criteria are used to show a change: 1) The change must be at least 6 roundtrips per month with no exceptions, 2) changes of at least 6/week are always shown, 3) routes that are added or dropped are shown subject to the change minimum, and 4) in all other cases routes must change by 20% to be shown. For example, if a route changed from 21/week to 18/week it would not be shown because the change is -14.3%. This is done to filter minor changes that occur in large numbers.

WHAT ARE THE FRACTIONAL FLIGHTS?
Flights that do not operate every day of the month create fractional service. If the route has more than 2 daily flights, departures are rounded, but in cases of less than 2 departures per day a fraction is shown. For example, if a flight operates 4 times in April it will show 4/30=0.133=0.1. Also , a flight that only operates once per week may vary between 0.1 and 0.2 because a weekday may repeat either 4 or 5 times depending on the month.

THOSE FLIGHTS AREN'T DELTA, THEY ARE SKYWEST
This report only shows the marketing code. It is too complicated to show all the operators.

THE FREQUENCIES MAY HAVE CHANGED AS YOU SHOW, BUT THE SEATS DIDNT CHANGE BECAUSE OF EQUIPMENT SWAPS
Seats are not shown. That is a natural weakness of a frequency based report, but it provides something to discuss below.

THIS LOOKS LIKE AN ERROR?
The carriers file the schedules. They do make mistakes. Most of the mistakes I have seen are either related to code shares not being marked as "duplicates" or carriers filing flights with invalid data such as equipment codes that are not standard or overlapping schedule periods that see the same flight number in two places at once. These cause flights to not appear.

CHARTERS?
Lately charters have been showing up in the database. I have no idea if that will continue.

I marked some of the ones I thought were interesting with an "*".

Thanks enilria!

The B6 trims from LGA to BOS (which is currently at 6x), FLL, and MCO are surprising to me. Did they have to give back slots, or are they making space for a new destination?

As for FLL-SXM, I’m pretty sure the intention was for this to be year-round. I think BOS-SXM was always seasonal, however.

I suspect LGB will eventually be completely cut, perhaps with a token flight to JFK/BOS left over. (But then again I have been suspecting this for years lol)

the truth does matter, guys. too bad it's often quite subjective. the truth is beyond the mere facts and figures. it's beyond good and bad, right and wrong...

looks like they are finally pulling the plug on this hublet.

SAT Just started and it is down to .2

SEA looks like toast now.

like I said: Hubs, partner hubs, SFO

This is the beginning of that vision

With that and their are slots at LaGuardia (That lose more money every time one of these cuts happens) AA Becomes the new USAir in New York

Nice job Dougie!

Will have to check later when this is available on Jetblue website, but I think LGA-BOS is probably going up to 7 or 8 a day during weekday at the expense of FLL/MCO, since Sat they only fly 3x.

In summer time, they have been running LGA-BOS at 5x on some days and LGA-FLL at 4x everyday in order to get 2x on some days on LGA-ACK.

UA drops ORD-YOW/TUS/JAN and IAH-CRW/CAE/LEX. Beginning to wonder if all that talk about beefing up the domestic hubs only applies to DEN.

The big AA cuts a for April only, they dont do network cuts that close in, and they dont do them for just one month. Its obviously related to the MAX.

The UA cuts to ORD-ELP/ABQ/TUS are suprising. Any theories as to why UA has trouble competing with AA and WN to this region?

Pretty sure UA added a bunch of new West Coast routes this summer (like EUG, RDM, DRO, etc) out of ORD, in addition to beefing up other routes (like FAT). So, I wouldn’t say they are having trouble in the Chicago region...

Heard yesterday from a 737 training manager friend who claimed that the Max's software update is well along - it will eliminate the single point of failure (one bad AoA input) amongst other changes. He also said that there will be a computer training module for all 737 pilots to complete and a likely change to the trim failure checklists. He didn't know how long all this would take.

We have seen some pretty nice IAD increases too it hasn't been all Denver. Maybe UA is choosing the hubs with lower operating costs ie delta style? ORD is competitive and expensive.

Also maybe these cities are just located closer to another hub or location wise the routes didn't make sense? For example YOW is only 300 Miles from EWR maybe they just decided it makes more sense to have have connections flow thru there to keep frequency up? They might also be doing some cuts to support the capcity needed for the MAX airplanes that can't fly.

With all of AA cuts to JFK, their route network from JFK is starting to look similar to DLs at BOS. A few “important” international routes and an array of domestic destinations

About KG service to Alliance, NE. I don't know if it is true. I have had noticed Boutique Air's schedule foa AIA and Chadron change in June and July, but AIA's makes sense, but CDR's is all fouled up by looking at it.
Anyway, since they (KG) are not doing Telluride, wonder if the Alliance thing will go ahead?
Continual thanks for your threads and input, enilria. Have a good day.

Looked at tgeir site and AIA is bookable 6/1 on. 9 seat SWM I guess.
Plus TEX once in awhile bookable,too.
Riddle: Which lasts longer, a start-up airline or a start-up football league?

Could they be taking aircraft out of service for the CRJ-550 conversion? Although the end result is the same regardless of why.

Could be. I saw United is basically cutting only 2 weeks ahead for the MAX. Personally I suspect the plane won’t be flying for a couple of months because the FAA has so much egg on its face it will be extra conservative.

As I said above I don’t see FAA rushing. It will depend how eager AA/UA/WN are to get the planes back as well. I’m not sure they are in a hurry once April hits. They are probably going to lobby for Memorial Day.

Aren't these all United Express markets? Perhaps a problem with one of the Express carriers?


I just checked ORD-YOW for a random date in August and another in September and to to my shock and disbelief it’s gone. That leaves YOW without any service to ORD for the first time since 1995 (I.e. pre-Open Skies when carriers weren’t allowed to fly said route). This route even sometimes sees E70/75s. It’s an absolute head scratcher.

I wonder if we will see AA reintroduce YOW-ORD or AC within the next couple of weeks.

This is so bizarre, as much smaller YQB has both UA and AA to ORD.

I can tell you that UA had 2 73M's on the LAX-IAH route that they are taking down from 12 to 9. Pretty steep drop on the busiest route out of IAH by passenger volume.

What's up with AV cutting BOS and ORD? I had not heard about this. Wasn't BOS a fairly new market for them?

Losing the MAX is really socking it to airlines.

Another week without a single freq/route change from AAG. What's this, the 3rd straight week, and there have been many '0 changes' weeks this year for AS I believe.

Management 'promised' ~2% growth in 2019 and I'm thinking they've achieved that already -- with PAE, ELP and CMH -- so maybe they gave the Route Planning Dept a few months off? (Maybe they've been sent elsewhere to help paint airplanes!)

On top of that, they've apparently given up publishing their monthly online Timetable (link: https://resource.alaskaair.net/-/media/ ... 19-AIM?v=1 ) so it sure seems the flight-scheduling gang in SEA has little to do these days.

I don't know how things are going at AS right now but I don't particularly like these signs of lack of activity with certain aspects of the usual operations at AAG...

YOW's transborder service in general blows monkey chunks. No ATL, no CLT, no MIA, no ORD, no IAH, and most of what's left is 50 seat RJs. Pathetic.

YOW, like just about all non-hub Canadian cities became pathetic when the US6 became the US3. YOW used to have ATL and CLT. YOW actually does have MIA, albeit seasonal on Saturdays as opposed to an E75 on AA.

Still hoping this is a misfile. If it isn’t, YOW-ORD won’t go unserved for long.

This is the beginning of that vision

With that and their are slots at LaGuardia (That lose more money every time one of these cuts happens) AA Becomes the new USAir in New York

Nice job Dougie!

We have seen some pretty nice IAD increases too it hasn't been all Denver. Maybe UA is choosing the hubs with lower operating costs ie delta style? ORD is competitive and expensive.

Also maybe these cities are just located closer to another hub or location wise the routes didn't make sense? For example YOW is only 300 Miles from EWR maybe they just decided it makes more sense to have have connections flow thru there to keep frequency up? They might also be doing some cuts to support the capcity needed for the MAX airplanes that can't fly.


DEN and especially IAD don’t have super low operating costs by any means - IAD is one of the highest CPE’s in the country behind the NYC airports (though, MWAA has been somewhat effective in lowering it). DEN is kind of mid level, but I’m sure once these concourse expansions and Great Hall projects get completed - it won’t be cheap either.

The B6 trims from LGA to BOS (which is currently at 6x), FLL, and MCO are surprising to me. Did they have to give back slots, or are they making space for a new destination?

As for FLL-SXM, I’m pretty sure the intention was for this to be year-round. I think BOS-SXM was always seasonal, however.

I suspect LGB will eventually be completely cut, perhaps with a token flight to JFK/BOS left over. (But then again I have been suspecting this for years lol)

Will have to check later when this is available on Jetblue website, but I think LGA-BOS is probably going up to 7 or 8 a day during weekday at the expense of FLL/MCO, since Sat they only fly 3x.

In summer time, they have been running LGA-BOS at 5x on some days and LGA-FLL at 4x everyday in order to get 2x on some days on LGA-ACK.


Just checked again, looks like they are loosing 2 slots unless there is some new route added. No extra frequency on LGA-BOS. I'm assuming this is the 2 slots they had been leasing from VX/AS that got leased to WN. Not good

Looks like JFK-FLL is up to 7 a day to cover the lost of flight out of LGA. No change on JFK-MCO.

EWR looks to be 31 daily flight by November.

I would think that with the combination of AS’s very slow plans for growth, PAE startup, and Max grounding, perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised we aren’t seeing any new stuff.

Alaska has always been fairly conservative with growth. After absorbing another airline, overcapacity on Transcon, and prepping for next recession I doubt much else will happen this year.

I'd hold out hope that once the big DL/WS deal is formally approved that we'll see Delta add ATL-YOW. That's a route that makes a lot of logical sense. As for ORD...well, it's not like AA swooped in to pick up ORD-YEG when that was dropped so there's no guarantees on that front either. The other thing that has done a number on cities like Ottawa, Winnipeg, Halifax, and to a lesser extent Edmonton has been the relative decline of the CAD to the USD. When it was one to one, US-Canada traffic boomed.

From what I've heard, most of these cuts released today should be temporary - due to pilot shortage at one of the regional carriers (can't remember which one).

AA has lost market share system wide, it wouldn't surprise me if they are losing even more on transcon because of their new uncomfortable seats. AA is great for flights under 2-3 hours.

Maybe. I’m not convinced that WS is strong enough in eastern Canada to move the needle that much on ATL-YOW, but then again it is a somewhat surprising hole ex-ATL. It must be one of the largest unserved markets within 1,000 miles of ATL.

Oh, ok. You mentioned Southwest, so I assumed you were including MDW too. In that case, maybe they are focusing on serving that region from IAH instead of ORD?

Correct Answer, but more than one of them.. Too much flying, not enough pilots. This was announced a few weeks back that they would be cutting some flying this summer to reduce pilot hours for ExpressJet and Air Wisconsin. Time will tell if the cuts are extended beyond fall or brought back as staffing is increased.

IAH-CRW/CAE/LEX were some of the longest 50-seater routes left in the system. I wouldn't be surprised if these are permanent cuts as UA probably feels they don't warrant a capacity increase to an E70/75.

It makes sense to cut ORD-TUS in summer. There's no indication here that the route won't come back in October, which is when the high season for visiting Tucson begins in earnest. ORD-JAN is a bit of an odd cut given that it's a 2x daily route, but it looks like that one is actually back after summer. ORD-YOW is a truly odd cut if it's permanent (from 3x daily to 0?). If there's a pilot shortage at the regionals, I wouldn't be surprised if ORD-YOW and ORD-JAN are related to that.

I wouldn't fret too much about the IAH or ORD hubs... Both have more flights (including more mainline), more destinations, and more capacity than they've had in years.
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

In the last week or two, we've had numerous cancellations out of my local airport for "Crew Scheduling". (SHV) They were all ExpressJet operated flights. I'm wondering if it is the same operator for those other markets (too lazy to look them up).


The MAX issue only worsens that.


Of course, next week, some of this may be reversed, but who knows? UAL seems to be on a bit of a roll lately, so we'll see if some of these "cuts" wind up being adds to other hubs (like IAD).
