Well, if MCI had a more flyer-friendly airport, I would base an airline there in a heartbeat. Good geographical location and a large population base. Nonstops to key leisure and business markets with 737's. It'd be nice to serve all the former Vanguard cities, espcially the one's that no longer see nonstops to MCI....namely FLL, MSY, and AUS. Of course, throw in some CRJ's for some lesser-travelled routes. And don't forget the most important thing: marketing! Make the people of MCI know what's being offered...tv, radio, print, billboards, you name it.

I went to RDU recently and did not notice one airline that had a particularly large presence there, so I would shoot for RDU, and begin by serving the east coast, and as I made money and expanded, I'd move west

MCI,,,,,extract as much as u could from the airport on FEEs they are chomping at the bit for a MAJOR/LCO to jump in and save them from the depths of $%^ i mean STLl, after what AA did to leonard griggs and his band of airport cowboys, any airport would be grateful for a carrier to hub there...cheers, mayor daly
