    Delta already has 5x/day to CMH so that’s safe. DL also already has AVL (1x/day) and CHS (4x/day) and LEX (1x/day). Wouldn’t shock me if they ran MVY/ACK runs on the weekend out of LGA…I believe that’s what US ran.

    As for the others, I can’t say I’m surprised in the least.

    Thanks, Seth. I’m really excited about the LGA-IAH. Maybe that will put some pressure on UACO prices. If not, at least there are more direct options.

  3. Dear United: Welcome to competition - FlyerTalk Forums

    […] document.write(''); Delta officially announced their plans for their new LGA hub today and it looks like there will be some competition coming in more than one way for United. On the route map there will be direct competition on LGA-IAH (4x daily) and LGA-CLE (5x daily) […]

    I don’t think YYZ is conspicuous in its absence. YTO-NYC is already highly competitive, with 55 daily flights on 5 airlines (See http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/westjet-frequent-guest/1283735-westjet-land-laguardia.html#post17509622), and on top of that Westjet is about to dump major capacity there, as you mentioned.

    On the other hand, YOW makes sense because it is much less competitive (only AC to LGA 3 times daily and CO to EWR 4 times daily) as evidenced by much, much higher fares (routinely $100-$200 more expensive than YYZ).

    It will be interesting to see DL increase its presence at YOW. Currently there are only 2 to 3 daily CRJ flights to DTW. They abandoned service to ATL after the merger. Pre-merger NW and DL also briefly tried service to MSP and CVG respectively.

    […] gotta say, comparing this map and the one Delta put together for their LaGuardia service, that this looks pretty pathetic. Maybe I’m completely ignorant in the world of route yields […]
