It feels like a lot of focus is the west coast and Hawaii lately. Even with less-than-daily service, F9, NK, and G4 can still erode WN market share in Tampa.
Sweet Jesus WN still has a Huge market share at TPA. Just like MCO and FLL with the Business traffic depression from the covid fall out WN has just Shifted to a peak and off peak weekly schedule.
Most of the leisure travel flying especially in Florida ramps up Friday thru Sunday. But to A.net followers it's the sky is falling mindset.
If you actually do the some research you will find out WN has been constantly adding back Capacity in Florida markets week after week as the travel demand recovers from the pandemic.
But You see F9 adding a crew base which caters to reducing crew overnight cost and increase scheduling flexibility as WN losing market share.
WN is adding service to new cities, increased Californian flying and is expanding Hawaii because it CAN and has a plethora of Aircraft to do so!
