Re: Atlanta Air Service Discussion

I think in the next 5 years FI will be going to ATL, DY has no plans of it and WW doesn't have the aircraft to do it ATM, so I think FI would be in store for ATL. It's hard to get other carriers into ATL because of DL's firm grip on ATL.

Re: Spirit and United? Rumor has it.

I couldn't imagine how an NK merger would effect MCO, lots of duplicate routes, but it almost seems like they'd have to use a whole airside to operate. At DTW they'd have quite a few gates to work with, F9 has 1 and I think NK has 6, plenty of room to move planes around.
