Re: Help me understand codesharing...

So UA and LH share the costs on all their transatlantic legs, but one might charge more or one might charge less to recover these costs. The airlines are still free on pricing. And then they have to add the tag-on legs on both sides of the Atlantic, which both airlines might price differently, too....

Re: OAG Changes 8/12/2018: DL Drops CAK-DTW;CZ Adds LAX-SHE;UA Back in IAH-MZT;WN Builds LGB;F9 Extension

It depends on what point you think we’re discussing. I’m talking about a west coast presence, and west coast routes. B6 at LGB has them. Does B6 want that west coast presence or not? If LGB is dying, do they want to stay in that game or not? If not, then the whole ONT or LAX question is moot. A Wes...

Re: Sale / Leaseback / How does it work?

Additionally, there is some trickery on these sale and leasebacks. It is VERY common to monetize the lease at the aircraft list price which is often 30% more than the airline actually pays. So if the plane cost $40m, it is not uncommon to do a sale leaseback at $60m. So the airline gets $20m in add...

Re: JetBlue Adds Former Spirit CEO to Board

I think the ULCC business model is inherently flawed. I doubt Jebtlue will go down the path of ULCC. Cramming 20% more seats on a plane and selling them for 50% of the ticket price of competitors can only work for so long. They are essentially making the seats a loss leader and making profit on anc...

Yes, as does LAX, which has a B6 presence. B6 has ZERO regional service from LAX and doesn't compete with WN on a single route. How do you have a focus city without any short-haul or even medium-haul flights? You don't. B6's shortest route from LAX is MCO. I'd say you made my point that B6 avoids W...

Usually the airline orders the planes. The airline pays the PDPs (Pre-Delivery Payments the maker charges to make sure they aren't left with a completed airplane and no $$$).
