Yes, Matt D, it is an outrage. And HlywdCatft, I heard from a 'reliable' source that Eastern is getting the 717-200 as a DC-9 replacement. As for Pan Am, that's anyone's guess, I presonally think the 777-200ER due to their long history with Boeing, but in today's amrket, anything is possible.

B&M is coming into Manchester in March. The owner of Pan Am said in a newspaper article that once our runway 17-35 opens at 9,250 feet this June he'd start Florida & Caribbean service from here using the 'mainline' 727-200s. I'll believe it when I see it, but the fact that we're the only airport in the whole northeast to have shown growth 2001-2002--and is in the midst of building more gates right now--is catching the attention of David Fink and perhaps the folks at JetBlue (who have to decide whether launching Logan service AFTER Song has already done so is a shrewd business decision).

Eastern will be hiring after the introduction of Tu-334s to replace the DC-9s. Ozark is also replacing thier DC-9s but with second hand Tu-134s(ex-Interflug). I'm sure both will be hiring soon. Rumor mills have also been speculating that Texas International will be adding YS-11s for inter Texas service, especially on the high-density Waco-Lubbock route.
Hope this helps.

Clearly whoever told you this doesn't know what the hell he or she is talking about. Why can't we get some reliable information around here?
Anyway, a REAL source (namely the late Ted Baker) informed me that 1) they will NOT be using YS-11's on the Waco-Lubbock route. They will be using Convair 240's. And the route is Waco-Harlingen.
Get your facts straight.
Also, regarding the RC dropping of the CID-OMA route, I realize that A) I have never been to either city, much less flown it and B) most likely never will, I still think it's an abomination. Hopefully Muse Air will see this Black Hole over Mid-America and send in their MD-11's PRONTO.

Will Pan Am be the Launch Customer for the 7E7? Also, When is National planning on taking delivery of their A380s? And I would like to know when Braniff will add the FLYING COLORS Schemes to their 757s?

Actually, the white tail Braniff 757s are leased from Interflug and will be returned to the East German flag carrier in April--Interflug needs more capacity on the Leipzig-Dresden-Karl Marxstadt shuttle and the Tu-134s are going to Ozark as previously mentioned. My inside sources (ex-Staatssicherheitsdienst) tell me that Braniff is negotiating a deal with Boeing for some 717-300ERs which will allow nonstop flights from DFW to Tahiti. Service to the Galapagos Islands will be henceforth discontinued, a severe blow to tortoise-spotting enthusiasts. Unfortunately, these enthusiasts are notoriously low-yield passengers.
