Regarding Frontier it does seem more like a pretty big adjustment. There are more than a few routes which appear unchanged for October (it's not like *all* markets got hacked off in a scheduled reversion), so I do think these are probably real.
Among the changes are new markets and some flight increases, nearly all to warm destinations.
Thanks. If it is real then they have a ton of new things left to announce.

I suspect there are routes in BOS that make more money than anything at JFK.

I think they are just airplane short because of the mass retirement as I predicted a while back, they have always cut long-haul when they need airplanes because it minimizes reaccom.

Maybe it's even, but when they do temporary cuts to long haul it has been because fo a fleet shortfall plus we know this is the 737-300 retirement timeframe.

It's hard to tell without a detailed analysis, but since WN doesn't run red-eyes those long-hauls basically pop a plane out, but those short-hauls ccan/could be fringe times.

Also, B6 might be beating everyone else on JFK to LAX basically turning that into a shuttle every 2 hours.
One thing that I don't think has been discussed anywhere...
DY has basically gutted any opportunity for B6 to do Europe to NYC with narrowbodies. BOS I think is still feasible, but I think DY pricing and the breadth of their schedule make it very hard for B6 to do it from JFK coupled with the limited range of a narrowbody. B6 could still do widebodies deeper into Europe from NYC. B6 has a lot more feed, but the higher yield local market is too important for those markets to work now for B6 IMHO. B6 also gets a much greater fare premium in BOS than JFK.
