I noticed that AA is flying half of its flights to IND from ORD with mainline S80s. This is great news. When did it start? I'm assuming its a response to need for increased capacity.

not sure exactly, but I think it was either in April or May.

The mainline service started 14 June. O'Hare-Cleveland service is also being upgraded to mainline on 1 November. Also in Indianapolis, AA is adding daily Super 80 service to MIA 1 November.

It's about time. UA used to fill up a 747 CLE-ORD, and AA is serving the route with 35 passenger RJ's. It makes no sense.

I don't see why it makes no sense to you.
1.) How long ago did United fly these B747 CLE-ORD?
2.) What was the breakdown of connecting passengers on that flight?
3.) Compare CLE service then to now, across the board with all airlines, as well as cost levels and demand.

In the late 1980's, American flew 767's on IND-ORD. In 1992 I flew ORD-IND and back on Fokker 100's, my first trips on that a/c.

Wonder if anyone got pix of the UA 747's at CLE back in the '70s?
