Im shocked WN is still running BOS-ATL with it being only one flight per day running against B6's multiple turns and DL's 12X day.


Of the destinations that passengers would be connecting to from BOS, GSP is currently the only destination where ATL is the only connecting option on WN. The other destinations that passengers would be connecting to from BOS on WN have other 1-stop connecting options on WN, and most of the other destinations that passengers would be connecting to from BOS on WN are already served nonstop from BWI, MDW, BNA, STL, DAL, HOU, or DEN.

WN only needs to cover O&D and connections to/from GSP on its ATL-BOS nonstops since (a) WN already has a lot of nonstop service to BWI from BOS and (b) WN can connect passengers to most of its other destinations in the South from BOS through BWI.

I highly doubt WN is selling a lot of tickets from GSP to BOS given that they are only selling one option from GSP and it requires a double connect in ATL and MCI. My guess is that BOS is emblematic of what you see in ATL: WN slowly retreating from markets where they aren't strong on the other end and/or where they have a competitor besides DL.
