Re: WN leases slots from AS at LGA/DCA

MSY is an obvious add for WN at LGA, probably IND and CMH too, perhaps OMA or BWI. At DCA, increased frequencies, perhaps IND. ISP would be a cool add, though I know it's crazy. Would solidify WN's presence at ISP and show their commitment to the NYC area. I think we could see some adjusting at EWR...

Re: WN leases slots from AS at LGA/DCA

Also, just searching back...

AS was using 4 slots at LGA

B6 was using 2 of the 6 slots

If that still holds true, B6 not only lost out on bidding for slots, but will actually have to cut 2 roundtrips to LGA.
