Idiots,

Hasn't anyone told you guys you can't make money flying to Hawaii?

And Delta will KILL anyone that flies into Atlanta.

I don't know. I'm just repeating what I've been told by my management.

There is a reason they are going to ATL, just like there is a reason we will build an INTL hub from SEA soon hitting major cities in Asia. We are codeshare partners. Will that grow into something more? MAYBE. Will I be flying to Sitka in the left seat someday? MAYBE. Will Ocity be flying in DTW? You never know.

Bye Bye--General Lee

NWA has had 3 or 4 flights a day to Asia or Europe from SEA, never really an INTL hub. They do hit INTL gateways, but not like we will possibly see in the future. Thanks anyway.

Why is Alaska hub raiding a codeshare partner....

Oh wait, I get it, Alaska is feeding Atlanta. Their role as a Delta Connection Carrier is almost complete.

The problem is the Alaska and Midwest codeshare... Republic thought they had and end run.

General Lee might find there is no left seat, as his job (and mine) are outsourced.

You sure this is a good thing, General?

I doubt it, you'll be too afraid to set field elevation in the altitude alerter on approach.

Is Alaska's 150 seats a day between ATL and SEA that big of a deal vs Airtran's 400+ seats a day and Delta's 1500+ seats a day?
