where do they serve MIA from
Comair: What are the destinations from ATL? Why didn't they serve EYW from ATL? Where is their LAS, helena, Santa Brabara, Colorado Springs, and SLC service based?
Skywest: is their Eastern US Service based out of DFW or SLC?
could we see FLL or MIA-NASSAU AND FREEPORT soon? MCO-Freeport. MIA-EYW?

They don't serve EYW from ATL because the CR7 is needed on that route, due to the short runway and only the CR7 has leading edge slats. The CR7s currently being operated are primarily downgrades from mainline flights.
Out of SLC, Comair flies to HLN (1x), MCI (1x), OMA (1x), RNO (1x), and SBA (2x). Due to the lack of flights (only 6 daily), the aircraft probably rotate in daily via MCI and OMA and are staffed most likely with CVG based crews. Comair does not currently serve LAS, but when they did, it was via TUL with CVG based aircraft and crews.
ASA does not serve FLL. Delta Connection at FLL is provided by Comair and Chautauqua.
SkyWest's eastern service is based out of DFW. The farthest east they go from SLC is MSP. However, the flights that cross the Mississippi are all out of DFW.
As for your route ideas, we probably would see FPO out of ATL first. MIA is becoming a spoke city for DL, so I would say no to MIA-NAS. However, FLL-NAS might be in the equation with maybe 2 daily ER3. However, DL probably has other markets higher on the list than FLL-NAS. As for MIA-EYW, definetely not, since CO and AA already serve this route.

I remember back in the late '90s when Delta operated FLL-NAS with a mainline MD-88. I think the aircraft actually continued to LGA with a different flight number, when NAS got U.S. Customs pre-clearance facilities.

that was flight 1116 from DFW. some other odd routings out of FLLand to FLL were MIA-FLL and FLL-PBI... FLL-MCO was express for a time and FLL-TPA continued to LAX and at a time SFO... FLL-TPA was a great route.
looks like someone at DL reads these forums.... DL used to serve FPO from fll and its great to see service to FPO again. any route from FLL has a special meaning to me as for 3 months in 1996 i had to spend every friday at the airport and i did a lot of FLL-ATL traveling then as well. so FPO has a special place there. hopefully FLL-FPO will return soon and if not NASSAU-FLL should start to compete with Bahamasair.

I wouldn't be the least surprised to see US launch some ops ex-FLL regarding the Bahamas. The Caribbean has been the number one growth area for US, and I know they have announced FLL-SJU (or was it BDA) service. Anyway, I could see some more Caribbean service ex-FLL for US.
