AS can’t compete with B6 t-con product, and B6 can’t compete on short haul west coast against AS. Both carriers need to seize this chance to add bulk to their network offerings in the quickest and most economic way possible.
I agree, AS needs to GIVE IT UP when it comes to trans cons. They have zero to no scope protection, they should take advantage of that and become a glorified regional to feed AA international and B6 trans continental.
oh brother... here we go again. AS flies transcons to a substantial number of markets that B6 doesn't, and likely wouldn't operate. On transcons operated using the B6 core A320's, which are a majority of their transcons, B6 isn't providing a product that is better than any other airline. They all have their advantages and disadvantages. Just because you don't like AS doesn't mean they should fold up a major part of their operation and become a small regional airline operating up and down the west coast only.
I concur. Plus they already have AA for the premium transcons so what exactly is B6 offering them? Seems like most the benefit would be in one direction.
