Greetings to all -
Okay, indulge me...growing up in Bakersfield I longed to live in a city with a busy airport. I used to religiously follow the airline service through the good and the bad. The excess capacity on mainline jets spelled the end of most service to the airport the in mid-to-late 1990's.
With the advent of RJ's, BFL has had life returned to it with DH8 service to PHX (on America West Express) upgraded to RJ's, in addition to the recently announced return of a LAS red-eye flight.
And now, with a modern terminal being built (you can't believe how early 1950's that terminal is!! It needs to be preserved as a museum!!), I am wondering possible new air service everyone thinks a metropolis of almost three quarters of a million people could sustain.
I believe either Frontier Express or United Express (already there) could do BFL-DEN (BFL is currently the largest city west of the Mississippi River with no flight to DEN) and OO could do BFL-SLC for Delta. And for my mom's sake, BFL-DFW on American Eagle for her FSM trips.
What others do you think could be flown? All replies appreciated!!
