I thought the story wasn't written well enough to make that choice — and, in fact, seems biased in SkyWest’s favor. For example, Boutique is using propjets while SkyWest uses regional jets. We should know more about how that difference would impact travel and connection times. Given the distances between Victoria and the other airports, does a full jet’s speed provide a real advantage given the likely flight profile and ATC considerations? And that’s just one example.

There’s a benefit to having access to both DFW and IAH; but what about Hobby, with it being a fortress hub for Southwest? Doesn’t Boutique also code share? Is code share a deal breaker? What about TSA? And checked through luggage? And, are these airlines responding to an RFP or some other way to earn Victoria’s business?

For the community to decide, those questions should have answers.
