American Airlines recently announced that it will launch nonstop flights from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Minneapolis, a route that is dominated by Northwest. In a petty and vengeful move, Northwest just announced that they will launch nonstop flights from LaGuardia to Dallas, a route dominated by American Airlines. The beauty of this is that Northwest has zero feeder traffic into either airport, meaning that they are willing to lose a fortune on this route just to torture American. And yes, ridiculous moves like this were one of the reasons Northwest had been sitting in bankruptcy for a couple of years. Well done.
