You're forgetting that economy fares aren't really loss leaders though. The marginal cost of carrying an extra butt in seat is quite low. And someone paying CASM for their ticket isn't profitable...

I hate to say this, but there's so many properties in NYC and you've given us very little to go on. You're asking if the W NY TS is a decent deal on C&P but then say that the "point value" at the...
