Re: OAG CHanges 7/23/2017:AA Drops DCA-FLL/LAX-CUN, SY Drops DCA, UA Adds LAX-SGU/DEN-PUB

If you look at the profitability side of the equation using the DB1B fare info they are getting eaten alive. Profitability of the MIA hub has fallen a lot.I'd say it is close to ORD/PHX/CLT on margin when it used to be far and away #1. First off, I'm not sure that - in and of itself - is the most c...

Re: OAG CHanges 7/23/2017:AA Drops DCA-FLL/LAX-CUN, SY Drops DCA, UA Adds LAX-SGU/DEN-PUB

Meh - I'm unconvinced of just how big a threat that really is. The growth of three well-capitalized, well-run low-cost/low-fare carriers at FLL has persisted, pretty much unabated, for more than a decade. It doesn't seem to have slowed down AA in MIA all that much. Up until the Brazilian economy ta...

I'd think AA would love to be out of FLL completely given all the LCC competition, somewhat but not entirely like UA bailing on JFK. In the case of FLL I doubt any corporate contracts are at stake though In the jungle when you run, you tend to get chased! What do we think DCA -PBI will stay or go? ...

It's just exceedingly rare to see the hub airline run out of a market by two non-hub airlines. You could argue B6 maybe has a FLL hub, but WN definitely doesn't and neither have a hub in DCA. Imagine DL giving up on ATL-FLL or AA dropping LAX-LAS! There is also the UA IAD service which is probably ...
