Amusing idea. But won't play well with our airline status unless they join an alliance. And SJC/SFO-MCO is unlikely anyway...but AS has it!

Cheers.

I hope this is real. With the crazy prices Southwest has been charging lately, they can use some competition.

Hope Denver is on the list of cities being serviced.

Because Disney will be the low cost airline option

Cheers.

I’m trying to figure out if you meant “lost cause” or “low cost.”

I’m thinking the former.

I think this would be awesome! I hate airlines, but maybe if it's Buzz giving me the safety speech, I would enjoy it a tiny little bit more. I have very little hope in terms of the price, though. When I think Disney y DO NOT think cheap hahaha, and on top of that the article says they want to provide competitive prices like Southwest, yet I don't think Southwest prices are that cheap. I have found better deals with other airlines for my last trips, although it could be because only Southwest and Frontier have direct flights to Orlando from St Louis.

I can see it now...

You have to get a fast pass for boarding, but that is only for 10% of the plane. The rest, will have a long standby line.

If your flight is delayed, you'll get a bonus fast pass+ experience.

But hold on to you hats...

Now you will have the opportunity to join the exclusive Disney Flying Club as we buy our latest addition, a new 737 Max 9, NDFC001. Only 800,000 points will be sold. Initial buy in will be $200/pt.

Yearly M&R $50/pt

Initial point chart:

Mickey Class
6pts per leg

Goofy Class
3pts per leg

Pluto Class
2pts per leg
