Arlington -- Business Profile is a "Thing" except that the definition is not always the same because it depends on the local jurisdiction making the assessment -- its a lot like SIC Codes or NAICS Codes -- there might be two codes that could describe a companyIs a Business Profile a thing or just a intuitive concept? Is there a match-o-matic tool somewhere?
Arlington -- Not that clear-cut -- in an ideal situation with excess capacity [planes, slots, crews] JetBlue would still want to have BOS to MEX on its menu of flights for completeness [capital city of a fairly large and important country]^ I read this as "I post-rationalized BOS-MEX discontinuance, but declared it to have been predictable" describing the past with a claim of foresight.
Can you supply the pertinent business profiles for Boston and other cities which then correlate (in advance) with unsuccessful (MEX) and successful (choose 5) daily air service?
Extra Credit: use business profiles to prioritize unserved BOS-XXX nonstops based on profile affinities the airlines have overlooked
From Delta's perspective it probably makes more sense to have people fly BOS-ATL then onward since Atlanta is already on the way and has proven demand...I wonder if Aeromexico or Delta will give it another shot? Given Delta's growth in Boston, and they have a lot of the A220 on order, maybe it could work with the 220 this time around?
I always thought JetBlue would rough it out until the A220 came and I also thought maybe Delta will do it with their Aeromexico partnership and their A220. I looked at this recently and realized: the geography of both Boston and Mexico City combined just do not work from a spoke and hub standpoint and the business and VFR ties are simply not enough to support the route.From Delta's perspective it probably makes more sense to have people fly BOS-ATL then onward since Atlanta is already on the way and has proven demand...
I’d rephrase that as ‘not exclusively a Boston issue’ though it’s probably not a viable route at all as AeroMexico couldn’t make it work either with a couple major advantages like brand loyalty/awareness and connections on the MEX side plus a Delta codeshare and premium cabin.So it looks like MEX isn't a Boston issue.
This is all theyre saying:Which gets me excited to think where they'll redeploy those resources.
JetBlue currently flies daily to Mexico City Juarez International from Boston, Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood, New York John F Kennedy and Orlando using Airbus A320 aircraft. OAG Schedules Analyser data shows it offers almost 8,600 weekly two-way seats.
JetBlue launched flights to Mexico City from Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in October 2015. In 2017 the carrier obtained improved time-slots at the Mexican airport as part of the Delta and Aeromexico divestment process.
Scott Laurence, the carrier’s head of revenue and planning, explained that the redeployment should allow for more day-time transcontinental flights, as well as added capacity on routes from the US Northeast to Florida and seasonally to the Caribbean.
Ultra Low Cost Carriers work better on leisure routes, which BWI isn't.Spirit Airlines is cutting service to Baltimore/Washington in January.
