It depends on quite a bit of connections to fill the aircraft. This would seem to indicate a lot of ff with legacy carriers.
Just a question for good folks here, how many gates are actually available if another carrier wanted to expand here? There has been some chatter that JetBlue is looking at a new focus city and BNA was discussed. I personally think they'd be walking into a giant bloodbath given the WN/AA/DL strength there. But is there even 6 to 10 gates available if another carrier wanted to build up here?
"It depends on quite a bit of connections to fill the aircraft.......what % of WN traffic connects these days?"
