Re: Overbooking of Flights has become a major issue.

This thread is misleading. Overbooking has become LESS of an issue that it was in years' past; 2016 saw the second fewest passengers either voluntarily or involuntarily denied boarding since 1990 : https://www.statista.com/statistics/186198/passengers-voluntary-and-involuntary-not-boarded-since-1990...

Re: OAG Changes 4/16/2017: AA Adds CLT-SHV/TOL; DL Cuts SLC-GCC

I'm not sure I would say that TOL is terribly more convenient for Perrysburg residents. 25 min to TOL, vs 60 min to DTW (Plus you need to choose turnpike, or US-2 which both suck). The 35 min extra is a few gallons of gas and really not that much on the time side of things. That is exactly why TOL ...

Re: OAG Changes 4/16/2017: AA Adds CLT-SHV/TOL; DL Cuts SLC-GCC

Twenty years ago, TOL was handling over 700,000 enplanements. That's more than the all-time records for FWA, SBN, and many other similar airports. If TOL isn't necessary as you suggest, is FWA also unnecessary given that it's a two-hour drive from IND? Is SBN unnecessary because of the two-hour dri...

I'm not sure that DL's failure with ATL is predictive of AA in CLT. Specifically, DL had an incentive not to undercut DTW and cause people in the region to go to TOL and away from DTW. No, TOL/ATL ended before the merger. The problem with TOL is that its airport is not necessary. Nearly the entire ...

Let's not forget that AA has a very high yield on TOL-ORD. Because AA is the only legacy in TOL, they print money there - and with CLT, they'll print even more. TOL is hardly "printing money" At best, it's a marginal market. Loads are poor -- last summer, TOL just barely hit 70%; not good...

Wouldn't be surprised if Delta reduces the 359's order down to 15 in exchange for 30 or 40 more 321's - either neo or ceo. 739s and A321s seem a little large to cover MD88 replacement. Suspect th...
