Re: Greensboro / PTIA changing names

The problem with this is that Greensboro and High Point (Guilford County) fronted most of the money for the airport for years because Winston-Salem piped their money into INT.

Technically the name is Greensboro/High Point with High Point still funding more.

Re: Spirit announces GSO

Right, When looking at real sizes of areas, look at the CSA rather than the MSA. Plus GSO, when looking at GSO use; it pulls heavily from Northern Mountains (Boone/Wilkesboro) and Southern Virigina (Galax, Martinsville, Danville) and parts of RDU (Chatham County) on normal basis. And when prices are...

Re: Spirit announces GSO

Honestly, I'd be willing to bet Allegiant leaves GSO altogether and focuses on Concord. I am unsure how successful Concord is, but they have increased daily flights and destinations.

Re: Spirit announces GSO

I'd bet GSO's bleed is more to RDU than to CLT, at least for Florida, and NK in GSO has to stop some bleed at RDU more than CLT. RDU is a lot closer, and there were traditionally low fares out of RDU because of the sizeable WN presence and B6. At CLT, it's largely fortress hub fares from AA especia...

Re: Spirit announces GSO

Glad to see Spirit in here. Will be interesting to see how Allegiant reacts. I bet they just pull out and surrender to Spirit with Concord being as close as it is to GSO. And that may ultimately be GSO's angle too. Allegiant served GSO like a Charter airline since Skybus came in. If this works, they...
