Not really that recent, but I searched this forum and found that this hasn't been posted yet.
The Department of Transportation has awarded Duluth's Airport Authority $1 million to entice American Eagle back to the Twin Ports -- just nine months after the regional air carrier left, citing financial losses.
The return of American Eagle would mean the end of a monopoly hold on Duluth air travel by Eagan, Minn.-based Northwest Airlines and its affiliate, Mesaba.
I'm glad AE is returning, but I was hoping to get a chance to fly NW the next time I flew into DLH (since we always fly AA), but that won't be happening. However, I don't really mind, as long as I can get there.
