Re: Whats Next For TPA (Route Wise)? -- 2019

Looks like LH goes 6w (x3) on April 2. A last minute increase. But the flights are also showing CL as the operator, so it seems that TPA is back to the higher capacity birds.

LH goes up to 6w in November. Could this signal daily service by summer 2020?

Small peas, but WN is launching weekend only TPA-RIC, and Swoop is extending YHM into May.

This is a surprise. Up to six weekly in the low season, with DL also joining the AMS fray year-round. The six-way battle on TPA-Europe continues... surely someone blinks. DY would be my bet, but UK-Florida is something of a bottomless pit.

TPA-HAV is pretty well served at 9w 737 service. Don't see another carrier jumping in between Southwest and one of the longstanding charter operators. Given that the latter are still in the game, it must be at least marginally profitable -- but perhaps too marginal for WN to chase.
