Re: Do airlines discriminate based on routes?

I guess I can say I was a bit flattered when AA started sending its 32Bs from DFW to replace almost all the MD80s it sent from there while other medium sized cities still had a slew of dogs (that's not a derogatory term; I just like calling them that). This was right around August 2016 when they re...

Re: Southwest Schedule Extension 6/28

Again, you don't add new transcon flights in the middle of winter! It's the wrong season to launch such a service. You need to understand the concept of seasonality. Not all traffic demand is created equal. I agree that WN might not be adding LAX-IAD, OAK-IAD, and SJC-IAD nonstop service in Thursda...

Re: STL air service discussion - 2018

With STL-IND being less than a 4 hour drive, I just can't imagine why anyone would opt to fly it rather than drive it, especially since they're both cities where you'd more than likely need to rent a car once you land. I get why you'd fly STL-MDW/ORD - parking at a downtown Chicago hotel can be 70 ...
