Quoting enilria (Reply 149):
There is far more overlap between WN and UA at DEN.WN serves 49% of F9's DEN markets non-stop (32 of 65). They only serve 35% of UA's (43 of 121). That's the way DOT calculates overlap. ASM overlap would be even moreso.

All true but the majority of F9's markets are relatively large with 99+ seat mainline aircraft. UA flies to a lot of small markets on 50-67 seat regional jets with ExpressJet and SkyWest. I would say 2/3 of UA's markets from DEN are served with regional jets. History shows that's not a winning formula. Heck, UA is flying 50-seat regional jets from DEN to BNA aganist WN 737's and F9 A319's.

I'm not attempting to represent UA as doing better or worse than F9 or WN. The point was simply posed that WN overlaps UA more than F9. That's not really true by any normal standard.

I know but you did say UA isn't WN's target, F9 was. UA is much stronger now with CO, but they need to sort out DEN.

I've always thought that. As I said, I think it is fairly clear that WN has been chasing the other LCCs since the PHL debacle. I don't think WN ever thought they could uproot UA from DEN. Why would they? F9 is a much easier play. FL was the easier play in ATL. They won't uproot DL. It all makes logical sense and follows a pattern. BTW, trivia: UA only overlaps F9 80% in DEN on routes (52/65). I was kind of surprised. It's all the subsidy chasing causing it to be that low.

Maybe it's just me but that doesn't seem low. 80% overlap is high. I am actually surprised it is that high. UA serves a lot of smaller markets via the regional carriers from DEN like MFD, RKS & GJT. F9 doesn't have small RJ's based in DEN and I think that speaks volumes of DEN's hub performance over MKE's.

I know Shuttle America flies DEN-ATL for UA. I just took it. I guess there is no legal conflict because Shuttle isn't flying for F9. Republic Airlines is. However, I don't believe there are that many Shuttle America flights for UA in DEN.

Well, yes 80% is a large number, but UA had the hub first. I think DL had a virtual 100% overlap with FL in ATL.

BTW, the calculation is purely what % of F9's markets are served by UA, so if UA flies to Waterloo or Enid there is no effect on the %.

I'm pretty sure that flight is handled by compass. But the point is RJET competing against RJET means RJET makes money either way. Its not like if RJET wasn't there that the route wouldn't be flown, it would just be flown by someone else.

Quoting kingcavalier (Reply 148):
Coincidence had nothing to do with it but where else was WN supposed to add service from DEN except to the large markets, cities that were already in their network. There was a reason UA and F9 flew DEN to LAS. Was WN not supposed to add LAS when it reentered DEN?

What is so often forgotten here - or not mentioned - is that Frontier was not a picture of financial health before Southwest came to DEN. However unsuccessful Ted eventually was, that "airline" sure made life difficult for Frontier.

I don't think Southwest particularly aimed at Frontier, I doubt Southwest thought it was worth the effort, and the way Southwest has approached ATL would seem to bear that out.

Nor can it all be blamed on others - Frontier had made its own mistakes. There are external reasons (the actions of others) why Frontier filed Chapter 11, but there are internal reasons as well.

The question has to be asked - what is Frontier's place in this ultra competitive environment with high fuel prices - and does Frontier even have a place?

Like BB, I believe the answer is yes, but perhaps not in the elitist terms being used here, with the apparent insistence that the model must be "airline pure" - see the negativity towards subsidy, which Airtran did for years and to which Allegiant is no stranger. See also contract flying for Apple Vacations - PIT is still all Airtran, as is MKE.

The answer may be that Frontier needs a different model, which seems (to me) to be precisely why it is restructuring.

DOT may compute overlap that way, but many of UA's domestic non-stop markets from DEN have minuscule O&D traffic. Of the top 50 O&D markets from DEN, only five lack non-stop WN service. The largest is DFW (and DAL will be served in 2014), while the next-largest is ATL, which will be see WN non-stops early next year. The next two are CLT and MIA (#42 & #47 respectively), both of which WN does not serve. That leaves #50, CLE, which WN does serve.

Far more of WN's non-stop routes from DEN compete with UA/UA* than with F9.

The other way to look at it is from the perspective of which incumbent hub carrier was likely to fight for DEN. Frontier lives and dies by DEN, so they'd end up fighting tooth-and-nail for DEN, since it is a battle for survival for them. For United, on the other hand, the company's strategy has been to remove capacity from the domestic market and place a greater emphasis on international flying with little or no low-cost competition. As DEN is > 95% domestic traffic, they would be less likely to tolerate ongoing losses at DEN -- and they have no international service there to help shore up the hub, as US Airways did at PHL. United does have some niche nigh-yield domestic markets offered from DEN in the Mountain West, but they are also costly to serve. I think the ongoing reductions in UA service at DEN point to United "right-sizing" the hub; the only problem with "right-sizing" hubs is that the "right size" almost always ends up being "spoke size."

Even with WN's shared routes from DEN, F9 still (will) serves 36 airports from DEN that WN does not.

But here is my key point. Of those 36 airports, only 3 are WN station. LIT, LGA, and SDF. F9 just announced LIT, but I have no doubt it will be added by WN. WN doesn't have enough slots to do LGA, but I guarantee you it is coming after the slot auction and SDF is the only one without explanation.

Sure, LAS is easy to explain, but were GEG, IND, MSY, and TUS really critical to WN at DEN?

The answer may be that Frontier needs a different model

F9 should pursue the NK/Ryan Air model (which is a cousin of the G4 model), but the trouble is that it won't work in DEN. They need to be at an alternate airport near a major city. Something akin to SFB or LGB. Maybe it is Gary or Teterboro or Ft. Worth, but they need somewhere they can "own" and offer a ULCC product. That's the biggest open opportunity in U.S. aviation.

Allegiant is minimally focused on incentives, they care about long-term airport operating costs. They will say those exact words if asked and it's true, not a lie.

From all that I have read with regard to the current situation at F9 and RAH, it seems that from my vantage point of casual observer that WN really went on the offensive against F9...both in DEN and MKE...following WN's unsuccessful bid. With WN having come away from the failed deal fully armed with F9's proprietary information (from having viewed their books during F9's restructuring) to take full advantage of that carrier's more vulnerable state, do you suppose this was WN's intent?




If this is the case, I am sure there will be a significant lawsuit in the future. Repulic Airways will be around 1 way or another (not like Aloha which this is reminiscing).

Since you have directly quoted me, I'll say that the debate about "somewhere else" has been around since I first started following the airline, twelve years ago.

I have no evidence that what you suggest would work and I imagine that any move from DEN (which won't happen) would be met with cries of "woe is Frontier!"

Allegiant may be "minimally focussed" but in its time it has taken a number of them, even if it is only help with advertising, as at LAN. It cancelled BTR-LAS (as in didn't even start) despite having accepted the offer of help.

I just happened to know that isn't true. Talk to an airport that has negotiated with them. They are uniquely long term focused...to their credit. They will take an incentive, but just ask an airport which is their priority...or ask them. They want long-term low rates. The attitude of most of the other airlines is that as long as the playing field of rates is level (except for them during the incentive) they don't care about what the rates are unless they are ridiculously high.

I would think at least some of them are getting some "help." We know that DSM provided a revenue guarantee and that seems to have worked quite well, not to mention BKG, PHF (and PVU).

A number of airports provide first year only help and even the Mexican airports do hotel deals. LIR is "in conjunction" with Apple Vacations, and, somewhat less so, a couple of the other Mexican routes.

Virgin American is getting a big bunch of "help" at DFW, but it pales into insignificance with the "help" Qantas is getting at the same airport - more than $3 million.

Then there's the "help" that PIE gave Allegiant (more than ($1 million), at least in the first instance, and the big bunch of money ($1.5 million) that Airtran got from TLH before ending the routes.

That method wouldn't be terribly useful in this case, however. To bring this all back to where it started, however, there were several markets like GEG and TUS that were added fairly early by WN that seemed to make it abundantly clear to me that they were chasing F9.
