Allegiant Air begins 2014 with aspirations of launching transborder service to Mexico, betting it can replicate its business model in near-international markets. Its approach to international service seems a bit more conservative than its experiment in Hawaii, which has perhaps not lived up to the carrier’s initial expectations.
Despite some missteps in trans-Pacific service to Hawaii, Allegiant’s financial position has remained strong, and its ultra low costs are the best in the US aviation industry. Those results show Allegiant’s underlying business model remains strong, and the carrier is confidently planning capacity growth ranging from 9% to 13% during 2014 with Orlando Sanford playing a prominent role in its network.
Through its low fare, low frequency routes from small US cities to large leisure markets Allegiant remains the only true niche carrier in the US. And with no significant challenger to its business model, Allegiant seems poised to sustain its favourable financial results.
American Airlines is joining its US legacy rival Delta during 2013 in making a push from Los Angeles International Airport, a strategic but highly fragmented market where no one carrier holds a dominant, commanding position. Presently United has a marginal edge over its two rivals in terms of seat share, but it appears that American and Delta are aiming to close that gap by adding new service from Los Angeles throughout the year.
Unlike Delta, which is launching service to some already-crowded markets from Los Angeles, American appears to be undertaking a different strategy, introducing service in markets served by only one other carrier. In some instances the only other competitor is Allegiant Air, which is a low-frequency operator whose business model is not built on competing with other airlines based on schedules. In other markets Delta is American’s lone competitor, introducing an interesting set of competitive dynamics into the Los Angeles market.
A continued pare-down by Delta Air Lines of its Memphis hub that includes the elimination of approximately 56 weekly frequencies and three route cuts beginning in Aug-2012 will result in Memphis having a similar size in Delta’s network as the carrier’s Cincinnati hub, which has become increasingly marginalised since the 2008 merger of Delta and Northwest Airlines.
The latest pruning in Memphis by Delta should result in a decrease to approximately 125 daily departures by the carrier from the airport, down from a peak of approximately 300 in 2000, or a reduction of nearly 42%. As of Jul-2012 Delta estimated it offered 147 peak day departures from its Memphis hub.
After rolling out its corner-stone strategy throughout the rest of its domestic network, American Airlines rounded out its service expansions and terminal upgrades by announcing 10 new destinations for its Los Angeles hub, from 05-Apr-2011. American estimates that its expanded service will add approximately USD600 million a year in local economic impact, increasing its total annual economic impact in Los Angeles to approximately USD6 billion. However, it did not quantify what the new service would do for the airline itself. American expects to add to its current 4,400 employee complement with the expansion.
