Isn't that a peculiarity of the US?
It's all over the place by the looks of it Airline Earnings Roundup: Where Delta Soared United Continental, JetBlue Sink - Forbes certainly assisted AA.
This seems to back up my statement! Just to be clear, I meant US the country, not US Airways.
Virgin's Tigerair Australia losing $2 million a week http://www.smh.com.au/business/avia...a-losing-2-million-a-week-20140724-zwhn5.html
can you guys fly them a bit more, I need them for my JQ price beat guarantees
I still find it mind-blowingly stupid that they bothered to go through the relaunch and ended up going from Tiger Airways to Tigerair, they knew it was losing money, they knew the brand had the cachet and appeal of a fart in an elevator and it had questions over its previous grounding by CASA yet they took all the pain of a rebrand that did not differentiate it from the previous brand.
Keeping TT separate from VA will probably be viewed in hindsight as a reasonably smart move.
At the moment the customers seem to be saying "no way will I ever fly on Tigerair full stop" or "only if they are significantly cheaper than Jetstar" (and even then grudgingly), once the flight time goes up past 1.5 hours or the fare hits 3 digits then a wall of buyer resistance seems to be hit.
