Disagree. I routinely buy Mint and UA biz for $400-$620 one way. I can assure you that filling the A321T's J cabin at $600 apiece (even if you are able to sell all the seats, which is certainly not a...

Exactly. The data is clear - the paid J demand (and willingness to pay) is massively higher on NYC-LAX/SFO than any other route. The 321T is simply not viable anywhere but those two routes, and even...

People going to Westchester use LGA because there's just so much more frequency. Same reason ORH has basically no volume and BOS carries it all, even though ORH is more convenient well over millions...

Forget population. If you measure by GDP of the metropolitan area, there is actually only one - Osaka. And Osaka does not have an international air travel hub, much less one with 900 daily...

Couldn't disagree more.

UA and DL see no issue flying to TLV (up to 4x a day for the former, 2x a day for the latter). TLV isn't exactly a bleeding edge destination that needs trepidation.

Thats my whole original point. The world’s largest airline, out of their largest hub, is too scared to attempt a daily service to a city the size of Tel Aviv. It’s pathetic.

The difference is that UA already ran double daily 77W/772 ex-EWR to TLV. In my mind it's quite different.

Yes, certainly - I'm not saying it never deserved that number, merely saying that the "prestige" nature of the route is a touch out of date. Whereas AA1 and BA1 retain strong significance to their...

CX doesn't use single or double digit flight numbers afaik, their "flight 1" equivalent would be CX100, SYD-HKG.
WY is basically the same, WY101 is the better timed of the two MCT-LHR flights.

I've been let in several times on a LAX-BOS in J. I think the issue is you were an arriving passenger connecting on a non oneworld airline. I don't believe you have access in that scenario.

Yes but if AA is selling those seats in J at $2000 apiece roundtrip to some travel agency for Danube cruises, that's not a particularly profitable situation to be in.
Sadly we can only speculate. I...

There is exactly one (1) non-seasonal transborder flight, and it is UA to EWR. AA isn't exactly in the wrong here - the demand just isn't there outside of summer.

They’re probably trying to see if there is a market willingness to pay for F by testing various price levels relative to J. No need to give it away just yet, they can always oversell J and roll up. ...
