Savanthi Syth -- Raymond James -- Analyst
Hey. Good afternoon. Just a little bit of a broader question, not specific guidance for 2019, but the kind of the growth over the last few years has been, just kind of medium-sized market, maybe smaller, secondary leisure destinations, and what should we expect kind of the market characteristics to be going forward especially in a higher fuel environment?
Drew Wells -- Vice President
Sure. As you look out toward 2019, I think what you'll see is some of that continuing primarily the growth will (technical difficulty) reconnecting the dots (ph) that exist today. There's a lot of destinations and origin cities including the sight cities that have yet to be connected. In addition even in a rising fuel environment, we're constantly looking at new cities to grow the network. We communicated before one to two midsize cities a year and I think that's still the target at least in the current fuel environment if that rises, we'll certainly reconsider.
Scott DeAngelo -- Chief Marketing Officer
Yeah, so that there's really two ways that we can grow the peak days, one is shell (inaudible) so that will be the biggest help. Additionally, with the improved economics on the Airbus, we can push the hours of the day a little bit, so I would expect to see kind of your fleet wide utilization particularly on peak days grow a bit, which is consistent with how we operate the Airbus today. But once you kind of get the MDs out of there, you'll see a bit more in earnest.
