Re: DC/VA/MD Aviation Thread - 2019

Wow Air is reducing BWI from 11 weekly back to 7 weekly in S19. (Its other four North American destinations, BOS, YYZ, and YUL, were always 7 weekly and will remain so.)

They expanded way too quickly. I think on that we all agree. To me, the best option, which seems to be what they’re doing, is to back to their barebones network and grow organically.
