Re: WOW Air Axes JFK and DFW Routes: is Their Model Failing?

If anything, maybe FI and WW each need to find their own niche markets. Perhaps FI gets to have CLE, MCI and SFO, while WW gets to have DTW, LAX and PIT. I could see FI adding something like MKE with the 737 MAX while WW could send an A330 to LAS, perhaps even PHX. How about merging the two of them...

One I always found interesting was AA and BN running flights DFW-IAD-DCA and DCA -IAD-DFW.
