Re: Why don't low-cost airlines fly to ski airports in the US?

Alleigant's seasonal flights to Montrose are routinely the emptiest in their network -- often by a good margin. MTJ-DEN (both ways combined) Jan 2017 22.3% (34.8 pax / 156 seats) Feb 2017 20.3% (31.7 pax / 156 seats) March 2017 20.6% (32.4 pax / 157.25 seats) MTJ-LAX (both ways combined) Jan 2017 39...

ZK 3042 landing in Page about the same time -- both about 7pm Mountain
ZK 3039 is en route from LAX to Prescott and should land about 7:55pm Mountain

I think that's it.

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

Green Bay Airport's own figures for 2017 are out and, although the stats show only enplanements, they show the decrease in numbers are mainly due to a considerable drop in charter numbers (down 17% - a stat I cannot explain - perhaps someone here can?) and a large drop in Delta's numbers (also cann...

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

Correction to #3: WN did not acquire GSP through the WN-FL merger, but announced plans to serve GSP right after the FL acquisition by WN. WN also used to serve BWI, MDW, HOU, and BNA nonstop from GSP, but WN now only serves ATL nonstop from GSP. You're right -- Greenville was a direct Southwest add...

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

2017 stats are finally out for MKE. Total traffic up 2.4% to 6,922,130. Connecting traffic down 37.8%, virtually all of that is Southwest. If connecting traffic is pulled out of the stats for 2016 the local MIlwaukee O+D was up 4.9% in 2017. Southwest remains the largest carrier at 42.5% market shar...

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

Madison is definitely on the margins for Southwest -- some of its peers do have service but most who do were inherited from AirTran or have been with Southwest 20+ years. Here are some airports for comparison:with 2016 US ranking and traffic: #79 TUL 2.6m #80 GRR 2.6m #82 BHM 2.6m #83 DSM 2.4m #84 R...

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

We will almost certainly see fewer passengers between Milwaukee and Dallas with the loss of MKE DAL and Frontier not bringing back the non daily summer Dfw flight. Demand is not fixed — it is shaped by capacity quite a bit. That’s particularly true given how readily some of Milwaukees market spills ...

Re: Wisconsin Aviation Thread - 2018

With Frontier's Austin and Raleigh that makes 15 new nonstop cities from MKE since last March: When did we get a SJD flight? I don't see it on MKE's website and its not listed on the Apple Vacations MKE flight schedule. http://www.applevacations.com/flight-schedule/mke-milwaukee/ Interesting -- it ...

Re: Memphis air service discussion - 2018

OneJet will drive you nuts waiting for news. It’s certainly possible that PIT-MEM-MCI is not going to happen but PIT-MCI and PIT-PBI were only added to their website a few days ago.
