Here’s an interesting little tidbit that I came across on airliners.net this week. Alaska currently flies LAX-Mexico City once a day. It wants to give that authority to American, which will fly it twice daily and put Alaska’s code on the flights. Why doesn’t Alaska just walk away? Only 2 US carriers can fly this market now, and United is the other one. If Alaska abandons it… then Delta might be able to pick it up. All kinds of interesting undercurrents here. What do you think?
