How'd that work? So the plane would not take any more pax. from JFK-PIT?

Also, I am pretty sure in the US the pax. MUST pass immigration as soon as they land in a US airport. Or something like that.

It depends how they are going to operate this service, if its advertised as a through service then passengers are going to be very disgruntled at having to get off at JFK, added to this if they (DL) intend to operate JFK-PIT as a domestic service with passengers joining in JFK then passengers will have to get off at JFK to clear all formalities as you cannot mix Intl and Domestic passengers, however if not passengers joining at JFK then really they could clear all formalities ad PIT.

From now on I decided to include Allegiant Air in this thread as well (IATA code is G4). For those who do not know who Allegiant Air is, they are a rapidly growing ultra low cost carrier carrier based in Las Vegas that specializes in connecting small and mid-size cities such as Bellingham, Boise, Pittsburgh, Austin, Richmond, and Harrisburg with vacation and leisure destinations. They have several large hubs/operations in Los Angeles, Oakland, Las Vegas, Phoenix-Mesa, Orlando-Sanford, St. Petersburg, Honolulu, and Fort Lauderdale.

CAPA: Allegiant Air works to exploit opportunities created by consolidation in medium sized markets

Quote:
Allegiant Air is making some subtle network shifts as consolidation in the US airline industry has made operating from mid-size hubs more viable for the airline. During 2014 it has rapidly built up Cincinnati, as Delta has pulled down service at its smaller hub to maximise its network utility.

During 2015 Allegiant is introducing flights from other mid-size markets as it concludes those larger regions may not require as much deep discounting as some smaller markets within its network. The airline is also using its Airbus narrowbodies to increase its network breadth by placing those jets in markets unviable for its MD-80s, which still comprise the majority of its fleet.

Allegiant’s moves show that even as the US market may appear to have reached a steady state of maturity, market dynamics within that framework are changing, albeit at less dramatic levels.

Allegiant concludes seat numbers have fallen most rapidly at medium sized hubs

During the last couple of years Allegiant has added a layer to its network utility, introducing service from some medium sized US markets to the numerous leisure destinations it serves throughout the US. Typically, Allegiant links its large leisure destinations such as Las Vegas and Orlando to smaller cities like Casper, Wyoming or Boise, Idaho. But more recently the airline has added more medium sized markets to its network roster including Austin, Texas and Columbus, Ohio.

Cincinnati is the most obvious example of Allegiant’s moves into larger markets. It launched service from the airport in early 2014, and by the summer 2015 time period projects operating 34 weekly departures from the airport.

Good call! I forgot adding that airline to the list since I was uber-focused on the larger carriers, but yes, Allegiant Air is a force to be reckoned with... its main competitor would be Southwest Airlines in this case.

In such changes, not really... typically, what happens would be this:

Manchester > JFK > Pittsburgh:

- Manchester > JFK would get a B757-200 (or a wide-body) and disembark its passengers at Terminal 4
- JFK > Pittsburgh would get a different aircraft (and a different gate assignment to boot), despite it having the same flight number. In this case, passengers arriving from Manchester heading to Pittsburgh will need to clear immigration and customs, collect their baggage, and head to another part of either Terminal 2 or 4 to continue on

Pittsburgh > JFK > Manchester:

- Pittsburgh > JFK would arrive at either Terminal 2 or 4 since it is treated as a domestic flight (depending on gate assignment)
- JFK > Manchester passengers from Pittsburgh might complete their customs and immigration processes in New York (despite the fact that Pittsburgh has its own international terminal) since the aircraft is assigned to a different gate (or terminal, if the flight from Pittsburgh arrives at Terminal 2 and the Manchester leg departs from Terminal 4)

Same thing happens with the Pittsburgh Paris flight. They fly into Pittsburgh on a 757 and then fly it to JFK and then vice versa they bring it back to Pittsburgh in the afternoon and then the flight leaves from Pittsburgh to Paris in the evening. Thats the only widebody flight from delta we get in Pittsburgh unless there is a diversion due to medical or weather on the east cost.

757-200 is not a wide-body.

Actually I would say it's main competitor would be either Frontier Airlines or Spirit since those two companies share the same business model operating as an ultra low cost carrier.

B757 is a narrow-bodied aircraft... and it must be configured with full-flat J class seats since it is an international operation. And by the way, what's the largest aircraft operated out of Pittsburgh at the moment (passenger-wise)?

What would Southwest Airlines' competitors be? It cannot be jetBlue or Virgin America since both carriers provide more in-flight amenities than Southwest (despite the fact that WN now offers WiFi on some of its aircraft).

Now that JetBlue is evacuating the LCC market, I dont think Southwest really has any direct competitors. They're sort of a middle ground airline between VX/B6, and F9/NK

I am going to have to agree with NatFan9 and say they are in a league of their own right now. They can't really compete with Spirit, Allegiant, or Frontier since their businesses models are totally different (they are more similar to Ryanair if anyone is familiar with them since they pretty much charge customers for anything other than the initial ticket). At the same time their cost structure is much more efficient than any of the legacy carriers.

CAPA: Southwest Airlines finally exceeds return goals with fuel windfall; but others want to share in it

Quote:
Southwest Airlines capped a strong 2014 by posting a 21% return on invested capital (ROIC) – it best performance in that metric since 1981. It is a welcome performance for Southwest after the company missed its return goals for the previous two years.

The airline also continues to see solid demand, but like United, is monitoring corporate travel trends in the energy sector as a result of rapidly falling fuel prices. Southwest is also predicting flat passenger unit revenue growth for 1Q2015, which is in line with the estimates of its rivals United and Delta.

A sharp decline in oil prices has resulted in Southwest projecting roughly USD1.7 billion in fuel expense savings in 2015. But unlike some of its competitors, the airline is not rushing to define how it intends to apply the savings. As the rising chorus of "me too" gathers volume, Southwest looks likely to be confronting the same issues that its major peer airlines are beginning to.

.........
Southwest Airlines financial results: 4Q2014 vs 4Q2013 and CY2014 vs CY2013


Southwest Airlines unit revenue, unit cost and yield performance: 4Q2014 vs 4Q2013 and CY2014 vs CY2013

Recently i read here ,US-based Alaska Airlines has placed a $594m order with Boeing for six Boeing 737-900 extended range (ER) aircraft.

With this order, Alaska's total of locally manufactured aircraft on order increases to 79.The airline is expected to receive four aircraft in 2016, and the remaining two in 2017.
