Re: Kentucky Aviation Thread 2018

With that in mind, though, I really think SDF should focus on BOS rather than LA. While glamorous, LA is simply a very long distance that requires a lot of aircraft time and good fares to support it. Louisville simply does not have that. SDF should target either DL for BOS, or B6. SDF is, I think, ...

Re: Washington State Air Service Discussion 2018

IMO probably not now. The reason why NK cut SEA-LAX is because of yields, not load factors. With up to 30 daily flights between AS, DL, AA, and UA, I think that it wouldn't be wise of WN to jump in. In addition, they only have 5 assigned gates and already do up to 45 daily departures during peak ti...
