pretty good deal. 14,400 per departure guaranteed. Any tickets sales are bonus, and one less plane to park in BOS overnight(parking fees are very high).

seems like a money maker.

Also, AA is pursuing a dissolution of the NEA. Said if overruled they’ll get back in bed with us.

I wonder if this flight will be given SQ treatment (higher reliability) due to I believe you only get paid if the leg happens.

That seems like a lot of money for a short flight.

More than $100 per passenger since I doubt it's full all the time.

21,000,000 for 2 years, 2 flights a day $14,383.

gotta figure ground station pay into there also but it still seems like a great deal for us.

At that point I guess you just pretty much give away the PQI leg and then get additional revenue from the connections.

It does sound like a great deal for JB.

It's great to see the Federal Government finally reaching out and helping the poor struggling residents of PQI to spend my tax money so that they finally get to fly and see the world and take the vacations that they deserve!

I wouldn't be surprised if you work for an airline that has multiple EAS contracts for your feeders. So I'll take your comment with a grain of salt.
