Airlines serve any number of destinations where they have minimal staff. I don’t think that will matter in the least.

I don’t think that is DL’s plan. Even if it were, I don’t think it arrogant at all. None of the alliances would be remotely viable without a major US and European carrier as the centerpieces.

I agree that MIA ain’t going anywhere and is the premier South American hub (I don’t think it as comparatively well-positioned for Mexico), both by geography as well as economic and cultural ties....

Sure. And that Boston is more populous and substantially richer than either Detroit or Minneapolis (much) better explains why it would generate more traffic than the number of Italian Americans does....

Either way, tourist travel to Italy is so substantial that I can’t imagine a handful of people going to visit Nonna’s hometown moves the needle.

Except there are! Just like almost every single other airport, you can connect with an airline through their hubs. Heck, with WN, you probably have more route competition than virtually every other...

Why would Aeromexico or Air Canada be interested in a) competing in the US domestic market, b) want to build a presence in ATL, specifically, and c) allow US airlines to compete on their own turf? AC...

Fraud is a crime. Fraud is theft. Are you suggesting that theft of any type should not be prosecuted or only white collar theft?

Whenever I hear about NW’s reputation in Japan I am left to assume it was a different airline than the one that routinely had such a poor reputation in the US. The whole idea is, well, really funny. ...

Exactly. Pit bull bans are perfectly rational when you consider not just the probability of an attack, but the damage that would likely result. Talk of aggressiveness is, frankly, a red herring.

I think they know how to handle it just fine. Unless you think chasing garbage yields in an over saturated market is a good business strategy.

But your point wasn’t that you don’t like apple notes, but that it was a mark of poor quality. I don’t really care for Dom, but it is still a quality wine.
