Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

Looks like the BJX and MTY flights landed within one minute of each other today. Right now there are 3 AM planes parked at the McNamara terminal. How many flights per week does AM offer to MEX and MTY? I can't find any flights from AM on Sundays to MEX.

Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

In the meantime, how are the bookings for MTY and BJX keeping up? As BJX starts tomorrow! Looks like MEX will be less than daily for AM in the winter, 5-6 times weekly, but I can’t find bookings for the flight on Sundays, so it’s already less than daily. I also noticed that DL removed the second dai...

For Allegiant would they make more money at FNT or DTW? A split operation would be strange and isn’t normally a part of their strategy. What gate would they use?
