Delta isnt going to lower fares just to fly a bigger plane there.
Perhaps I should clarify myself. My point was that Air Tran carried a lot of people out of PHF
, particuarly northbound. BOS
was a very popular destination. If half a million people have simply stopped flying there is potential for an increased market share and DL
could set the fares however they wanted. It's all about giving the community options. Feeding the hubs at JFK
would be logical. Frontier is doing a great job to DEN
with ongoing connections--very popular with the community.
People does not seem to be going anywhere fast. Nothing said of them lately in the local papers and the website shows no open positions. I wonder if they are having trouble raising capital.
For those of us that live on the peninsula most would prefer the drive to RIC
rather than ORF. The tunnels under the James River can turn into a nightmare in seconds and while I-64 is not great at least it runs smoothly unless there is an accident. Especially on weekends traffic through the tunnels is bad with all the road traffic heading to Virginia Beach and the Outter Banks.
has a lot going for it--easy access of I-64, a very nice terminal and parking is not at extortionary rates. Sometimes it gets a little interesting when Air Force One does their "touch and go's" but it's always awesome to watch.
