Ah, that airport does show it has a seasonal flight to DCA and not PHL or CLT. I couldn't find other airports that only have DCA linked, and not CLT or PHL through AA though. Anyone know if there are...

As UA is routing some of it's Europe oriented TATL traffic from FLL/MIA-EWR-Europe, could UA steer that through IAD instead, while focusing more on O&D and domestic connections, and non overlapped...

There is a 6am PHL-DCA flight that I've wondered about. As this doesn't service TATL traffic or even west coast red eye connecting traffic, is there actually PHL originating traffic using it to head...

I noticed that F9 runs a daily CLE-CUN flight.

Given that PIT's market size is close to CLE's, would WN be able to make a daily PIT-CUN flight work? PIT doesn't have a nonstop to CUN on any...

I think it's still pretty much a bummer that Frontier isn't running TTN-ATL this winter, and that it chose PHL-TPA over TTN-TPA. The rental car situation at TTN certainly doesn't favor point of sale...

Spirit originally avoided pmUS markets. It's very small in PHX even today. However, some PHX routes like PHX-LAS need more of downward fare pressure effect. Southwest fares for this short route are...

ATL-IAD is silently being cut on March 16, which is very peculiar. Southwest is starting the route however. But it's an odd time be cutting the route, and no mentioning of it going seasonal.

LAS is a 24 hour city. VX might be figuring some of the younger adult group might stay up late by the casino or lounge to later catch that red-eye back home.

Given the whole demographic VX has in...

Disagree. It seems like a much better route for VX to be on.



Perhaps VX could offer IAD-AUS one day, since WAS is important in it's network. WN services BWI/DCA-AUS and probably wouldn't add...

CLE-MCO has $29 fares and with then 5OFF code, It's coming out to $25 :confused:. Not exactly $24 or $19 but close enough.

I believe the aggressive fare matching is being spearheaded by AA, led really by pmUS.

When Spirit decided to go into DFW and make it a focus, the original AA was in bankruptcy and things were...

I think this sale is more a boon for the BWI and MDW hubs, particularly over the DEN and ATL hubs.

This is because BWI and MDW have a lot of short-hauls, and WN is discounting the advance WGAs to...

United also only offers 5 nonstop destinations out of PHL. JetBlue only offers 2 and AirTran only offered 2.

On routes like LAX-BWI, or AFAIK routes over 3.5 or 4 hrs, WN FAs do make two rounds of snack and drink service up and down the cabin. They also give the bigger snack bags.

By IAD's subpar location, I also agree that overall time to get to IAD over DCA, is longer for most people in the Washington region. It is more out of the way.
