Hi Everyone. Been reading for years. But first time posting.

I think cargo and shipments between the two will be huge, but people to fill a plane not so much. Why would they need to ship cargo between the two? It's a headquarters not a distribution hub. In conclusion would this allow AS or DL to probably add an EMB 175 flights between SEA and CMH yes with th...Jump to post

I don't really see this as a big deal with WN wanting it shut down but then again I have saved a bunch of money over the years rebooking my flights on WN. It isn't that hard to check them yourself. If WN wants to make you check it yourself, instead of making it easy to see when fares drop, that's fi...Jump to post
Most of those are just LCC's. I think the key is that the PRIMARY customer of the airline are leisure travellers booking vacation packages (air + hotel + whatever). I would say F9 and B6 fly just as much "Ryanair" type low cost travel as they do people on sun holidays. For example, Thomas...Jump to post

Thank you! This is VERY informative. Now, looking at the International numbers on XTRA, it would lend me to believe that WN could have some business opportunities to MBJ and PUJ non-strop from STL. That would be my bet. Seeing the SDJ is only around 50% that won't happen and will have to filter thr...Jump to post
IND-MDW was at 3x day on WN earlier this month, but appears back at 2x I had no clue this is all they ran to mdw. I just assumed it was at least 4x daily. I also didn't realize they aren't running MCI-IND on Saturdays either. Surprises me a little. Not that it is a far drive to Chicago, I just figu...Jump to post

Unfortunately I'm not too knowledgeable on AS, but I know it was mentioned in the spotters page that IND said that multiple airlines are looking to put some more routes through Indy, including some longer-haul routes. Plus the fact that it was said last year that Alaska was heavily considering addi...Jump to post
Now that DL has added SEA, is there any chance that PDX is next for them? Or is that going to require an airline like Alaska to add the route? Probably AS, DL only flies to hubs from PDX. They don't even fly to the Bay Area or Chicago from PDX. DL has quite a bit of service out of PDX. In addition ...Jump to post

What's weird is that it takes Google Flights around 5 days to pick up the new route(s) off the airlines schedule. So, this was easily added 5 days ago yet nothing was announced. So, do they have more for that reason? (Network wide, not just IND wide.) From a MCI person, Delta is putting out a press...Jump to post

Based on those numbers, is there enough demand to justify a Montreal flight? Is there a hub at that airport? I wonder if demand between IND and Canada is so poor because of the lack of service. Perhaps this could be like SFO where the nonstop flight stimulates demand. Edit: I'd like to add that PIT...Jump to post

For CLE, Icelandair is 5x weekly on a 737 and WOW is 4x weekly A321. This ends up being a daily schedule to KEF from CLE, with only Tuesday and Sunday having both carriers running a flight.

The logical difference between an O&D or transit passenger is of course, does the journey end here or does the passenger continues on his/her journey. If you take the distinction of one or two or more different tickets, than you will count a lot of transit passengers as O&D: I don't think t...Jump to post
I would assume it is all done by your booked ticket. Each time you hit book and pay that is your itinerary and that is what is counted.

What would be the biggest reason statistically as to why DL would add CMH-AMS over BA adding CMH-LHR? Delta might just have more free planes for the route than BA.
