@ghimlay A tale of how an airline route’s popularity can change within months – LAX-MEX once had as many as NINE airlines planning/offering service. Now down to just five. UA and AS left, B6 dropped LAX for BOS, no start-up date announced by VB.

@julianoneill And here’s what NI airports are up against – just booked 4x Heathrow return flights which are half price from Dublin v Belfast with same airline. £270 compared to £540 ..

@justinbachman And then there was everyone… $ALK joined the $30 first-checked bag fee party today for tickets purchased on/after Dec 5.

@tedreednc “This is one of the best revenue environments we’ve ever seen.”  @United President Scott Kirby on earnings call.

@winglets747 Direct comparison certainly favours 359. Other factor in this example: SQ already operates 350 (345 needed its own pilot pool). Wider consideration: SQ’s 359 is more efficient than 345 – but competitors have gotten more efficient, too.
