Spirit Finally Starts Climbing Its Way Out of the Doom Spiral

Operational disruptions happen all the time, but an operational disruption like the one Spirit has been experiencing? That is much rarer event. The last time I can remember something like this happening was the JetBlue Valentine’s Day Massacre in 2007. That was a long time ago, and it had far-reaching impacts on the airline. Spirit’s disruption looks like it’s probably even worse. Things had been going swimmingly for Spirit for the last couple years with just a few hiccups. Former CEO Bob...

Delta and United Set Schedules Until the Holidays, Frontier Goes Capacity Crazy

On the surface, the Cirium data made it look like a relatively quiet week in Airlineville. Maybe they were all masked up, isolating in their homes just like I was. Or maybe they were quietly hatching plans for the future. It was most certainly the latter for both the Widget and the Globe. It may not have looked like much, but they both seem to have made their plans all the way until the holidays hit in December. That just seems so far away. Meanwhile, the Animal behaved like a fast-grow...

Should United Eliminate Bag Fees?

It’s fun to sit back and ponder “what if” scenarios, so when I saw Holly Hegeman mention in PlaneBusiness a recent note from Wolfe Research analyst Hunter Keay, it caught my attention. The note is entitled “What if UAL adopts Bags Fly Free?” and Hunter was kind enough to provide me with a copy. As Hunter says in the note, this isn’t meant to advocate for United to actually eliminate bag fees. Instead, the note reads like a bunch of smart avgeeks sitting around on a Friday night with a beer ...
