Hamlet (4/14)



  1. I think it's telling that XNA can't get them to at least Den at 3x a week. Add Huntsville Alabama to the Frontier service list to DEN and MCO as well. While some of the connecting times aren't great, they are one up on Allegiant on that front. XNA flyers should gladly replace Allegiant with Frontier on Orlando. Let's take DEN, if we could get some cheap Frontier like direct service, folks could take advantage of those sub $400 R/Ts Denver/London one can have at certain times of the year from there. I know the TUL/SAN flight isn't going to go on long but there's no word on that flight to San Jose. See...that made better sense for XNA due to the Walmart IT connections.
  2. Still no Frontier yet at XNA bit they are adding the likes of Asheville NC and even Lafayette LA to their DEN and MCO stations. Sure it's less than daily but still........
  3. Like I said, after Jan 1st. Around Jan 6th it drops off, I wouldn't hold my breath on it coming back.
  4. LIT/PHX on Southwest goes away in JAN 2019. No new frequencies have been added yet to make up for that. Around the same time that goes away, MEM/DAL is being bumped to 3x weekday and most SUN and 2x on SAT, plus they are adding DEN in OCT. Southwest is cutting from PHX these days as DEN rises. When does Southwest add LAS to MEM, jeopardizing LIT's flight? Southwest should add Denver and Nashville to LIT
  5. They need to add DEN as well but they are just starting MEM/DEN in October. They extended the schedule till the first of March. No changes for LIT but MEM gets bumped up to 3x daily to DAL for the week and the weekends see 2x and 3x to DAL. It varies weekend to weekend. While I like seeing more frequencies to DAL for the sake of better connections. I would have loved to have seen LAS or PHX added where those really open up West Coast connecting options.
  6. They do have MLS but the owner is determined to move to Austin. I always thought Louisville would be a good NBA market especially now with Yum, even more so than KC with Sprint.
  7. The reason I said Peer to Memphis is because of the size of the MEM catchment area outside if the immediate Memphis MSA. Columbus is big but it's reach is compact and the perimeter surrounded by large airports.
  8. Yes, 6 million total. My Brother called me to wish me a Happy Birthday from the Columbus Ohio airport. That is the size Memphis should mature to and be a peer of. I think Southwest should add Nashville from LIT.
  9. Being from there, I'm not. The MEM CEO made a good point that while Delta operated around 300 flights a day from there, the vast majority were 50 seaters. If you look at seat counts and plane size today it's the equivalent of 125 flights in the Hub days. He expects the 6 gates that are open currently after B concourse consolidation to likely be filled in the coming years. I don't know why they didn't go ahead and do all of B, there's about a dozen gates down the southwestern leg not getting to total redo. At the current rate of growth when MEM moves everything back into B in 2021, It will be near 6 million total passengers what they said was needed to do the rest of B. I wonder if the new Allegiant flight to OAK has poached any LIT traffic. It's said to be leaving nearly full. I was happy Air Canada entered the market never thought they'd add a second daily to Toronto.
  10. Speaking of AA, up the road in MEM, they have gone 3x daily(M-F) on DCA all in a 76 seater. All kinds of sub $300 R/T fares for it. Plus they adding a second daily to PHL and MIA. Just waiting till they finally add LAX to MEM. It and JFK are the only AA hubs missing in the MEM roster. It has been quite expansion post Delta Hub. Aer Lingus entertained the MEM folks for possible service to Dublin when they get their A321LRs. Still a bit of a longshot but with over 100 indirect pdew from Europe to MEM during the summer. A seasonal flight on a smaller single aisle is possible at 2 to 3 times a week.
  11. Air traffic is up at just about at most airports. My 'other' closely watched airport(MEM) is up around 7% for the year.
  12. They aren't joking. I'm going to Europe in summer 2019. It's much cheaper using Frontier or Southwest to get to an airport where ethere's some TATL.competition. Denver has been made on of those such places with Norwegian and the Iceland based carriers. We are talking savings of several hundreds of dollars per person and when you are booking for 4, it can save thousands. The XNA anomaly is NYC. Flights there are cheap on the legacies only problem is there's no JFK service where the best TATL fares are found with a few frow Newark.
  13. Frontier just added MEM and TUL to San Antonio. No XNA service still.
  14. This would allow them to close the existing Springdale store and look to west of I-49 for a new stand alone Springdale outlet.
