I think people overplay the cost advantage of owning Chelsea. They only have, as I understand it, ops in 6 airports: the 3 current hubs and 3 former hubs of DEN, LAX, and HNL. That leaves them still...

I don't think it says too much about the UA and US partnerships, other than that they are somewhat limited as partners out of the important NYC gateway. UA has no NY hub to speak of, and US' NYC hub...

Missed the prior. Jersey Gardens Mall is quite close (less than $10 cab), but also quite ghetto.
