On days of 100% flight operations-which is Monday, Thursday, Friday and, for the most part, Sunday, the outbound banks are:
-8AM, eastbound flights
-930am, westbound and southbound flights
-1130am-eastbound and southeast bound flights
-1pm-westbound and southbound flights
-330pm-eastbound and southeast bound flights
-5pm-westbound and southbound flights
-7pm-eastbound flights and southeastbound flights
-830pm-westbound and southbound flights
Within each bank, you'll find an occasional flight going in the opposition direction, like a EWR or LGA during a westbound bank, and an IAH during an eastbound bank.
And most airlines probably don't follow a schedule at CLE near CAL-they'll follow a schedule that flows into their respective hubs.
As for COEX to CO ratio, I'd say it's more like 70/30 in favor of COEX.

Can you guys tell me what is going on with the runways at CLE? When I look at the airport facility directory it showes three parrallels now. Its my understanding that one of those runways is going to be turned into a taxiway. Is this correct?

6/24C is going to,eventually, be just a taxiway. But with construction still going on on the two main runway, they do occasionally still use that as an active runway, and, I imagine they will until construction is finished on both runways.

Here's what I've wondered, best I can tell, CO is the most aggressive airline at reducing its schedule on Tu, We, Saturday. What's happening with those aircraft, are they literally parked? They surely aren't repositioned to IAH or EWR? So it's more profitable for CO to have those multi-million dollar birds sitting there earning nothing? I thought WN proved quite dramatically that it's best to keep those assets moving 16 hours a day, with minimal gate time, what's different about CO's calculations? I sure would have thought that it paid to keep the airplanes moving, but I'm sure CO analyzed it to death.

You don't make a move without analyzing it to death, and Bethune's team isn't the team that ran CO into the ground, who had the rep of anyalizing nothing and acting on a whim.
I can tell you, from being on the ground, that CO must feel it's costs them less money to have the planes sitting for an extran bank insteand of having the flights 50% empty on those days. Perhaps they think it ups the load factor on the remaining schedule for those days, and that makes up for that one less flight on tues/wed. Saturday has always been a reduced schedule day, has been for the 16 years I've been with CO.

According to CAL's electronic timetable, which includes about 10 NW codeshare flights and CO Express/Connection flights, CLE has the following daily departures:

For the most part, Ncflyer, it's just a CLE thing. I don't know about Saturdays-that seems to be, for the most part, a system-wide reduction day, but on tuesday and wednesdays, EWR and IAH run a tad under their normal schedule-maybe 3 to 5% below, say Thursday, but nothing major.
I think with the lowering of the landing fees, and if the industry can stabalize somewhat, I think you'll see the disparity between the "regular" schedule, and the reduced schedules, will be reduced to some degree.
