They won't be raking in any rcored profits with those fares....And they wonder why they continue to loose money at an alarming rate. Don't worry, as they will just take more from the Employees to cover their losses as they widen. :down:

NHBB,
actually, it's pretty likely AA will lose market share in LGAMIA. Like it or not but DL has done pretty well in the transcon markets which long have been dominated by UA and AA. Both of the markets DL picked to start service in were served by AA only. DFW and ORD are the only remaining top NYC markets that DL does not currently serve.
 
LGA-MSY in a CRJ? And to think airline executives wonder why the public is getting more and more fed up with being stuck on a RJ for segments of this length.

As for LGA-MIA, DL can run their two daily.We'll be up to ten daily as of Feb 16. As of today we're running eight daily LGA-MIA.

How much market share do you think DL is going to take? How much connectivity to the rest of Central and South America does DL offer in MIA?

I've also heard that the two trips on LGA-ATL that are currently operated by Eagle may well be turned into S80's as well for a total of five daily LGA-ATL.

I'm sure Jerry would love to do that but the reality is that DL has more RJs than they know what to do with. And, specific to New Orleans, that city is still very much in recovery mode; it appears that DL is trying to return to the position of dominant airline by adding multiple destinations even if it's only on RJs.
