PDEW numbers. Only included the "off-season" numbers. There is no doubt there is seasonality in some of these markets. SEA numbers double into the summer months and SFO increases quite a bit as well.

I just double checked this, and NK and WN aren't even competitive in this market in the winter. WN has no flights and NK has 1x daily leaving PHL at 7:45pm. It's crazy to me that PHL-LAS has no nonstop flights before 6:30pm, and just 3 daily in total! US used to run 4-5x daily 757s on this route at...Jump to post
Surprised to see AA cede so much of IAH-PHL to UA; I and some colleagues fly this route weekly and at one point it seemed AA was going to give it a go against UA. Frontier is seasonal and less than daily and WN just (re)started PHL-HOU and Sat-only IIRC. UA has upgauged from the 175s and even UA se...Jump to post
Could some of these be upgauges? Thanks Eniliria, really like the YOY comparison. So far I do not see many upgauges. Seeing quite a bit of PSA CRJ7/CRJ9 flying gradually shifting to PHL in Q1 2019. I'm even seeing that a little bit now. An aspect of it might be the gate utilization at PHL. E-jets c...Jump to post

Is it just me, or does it look like there are quite a few reductions in ORD frequency for AA?
PHL got it worst

Thanks Eniliria, really like the YOY comparison.
AA winter cuts at PHL look like they are mostly extended through March. Par for the course at AA. But 2x on PHL-IAH and 5x PHL-ATL with only one morning flight is less than ideal.
UA's reduction of PHL-SFO is a sting, but still months away for tweaks to be made.
We've seen a good amount of these overfly routes, these are a few more, and I think we'll continue to see more
ORD and CLT are gaining routes in the NE or PA that overfly PHL in a sense, but PHL is gaining AVL and CHA that overfly CLT a bit.
I would have thought that Erie would have strong same state ties to Philly, and would therefore have some decent O&D traffic to supplement the connectors. It's a long drive. . . . But guess not strong enough. Not really as verified by the ~10 PDEW. Maybe 60+ years ago when coal and steel were t...Jump to post

Ugh, with IAD-PHL ending, it's becoming even harder now for TATL flying out of PHL on Star Alliance. I think it's down to LH to FRA or AC via YUL/YYZ.

1. I will not drive to EWR or JFK when I live 15 min from PHL. People who write that Delaware Valley, Brandywine Valley, and South Jersey residents prefer EWR and JFK really just have no clue.

Comparing ORD's service blunders to PHL is comparing apples and oranges.
And EWR is right up the road which wouldn't surprise me if UA takes quite a bit of Asian traffic from AA at PHL. AA wants me to connect in DFW or LAX to Asia...no thanks I'll take a nonstop from EWR.

Not that surprising to see the CLT F9 reductions. Not only is it the slower winter period but it is AA's sheer dominance in schedules (4-5x day each on CLT-SAT/AUS) that leaves very little low hanging fruit for F9.Jump to post
