Wow. We know the spotter scene has taken a plunge when we see posts like "US Airways 737 in CLE tonight."

Nowadays, in ROC, we see so the Dash 8 so many times that KROC has christend it "The Crapchester Special."

Where have all the INTERESTING aircraft gone?

Looks to be a daily 733 PNS-CLT-CLE, according to Travelocity timetables.


I'd rather be flying.

After pulling mainline out, US Airways 737s are back in Cleveland, 1x daily from Charlotte. This is just for the winter season, however, since the flight ends around March 8. US adds frequency to CLT in the winter--all upstate New York markets have seen additions (including US's beloved Sat. only service) this year or last year.

Yeah its true they dumped the all RJ idea and brought back the 737's , I saw one when I was at CLE when the AN225 was there.

There is one that RON's at CLE - must be for about a few weeks now. I see it on my way into the airport every morning.

The reason they were all RJ in CLE for a while was so that they could make it a "Mainline Express" station and pay all the gate agents and ramp agents at express payrates. Once that happens, they're allowed to add up to 2 mainline flights per day and keep the reduced payrates. It's already happened to several stations...look for it to happen to a lot more of them.  Sad


I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

Or was it a diversion from CLT-DTW. I know there will be a lot of delays and diversions at DTW they are supposed to get 65 mph winds

Umm... no that's a scheduled flight. Beleive it or not US actually flies mainline into here. Is this seriously a big deal? We just had an AN-225 and we've already sunk this low?

A330323X - Interesting info, I had no idea about the pay rates. Sure seems to make sense to me. I'd be curious to see if they eventually bump that flight up to 2X / day, but I wonder if the CLT market can handle that much capacity.

HlywdCatft - I doubt it was a diversion, it showed scheduled and the weather is pretty rough in Cleveland right now.

I heard a rumor about United bringing mainline back to CLE from IAD. Can anyone confirm this?

CLE-IAD has never been mainline, so they can't exactly "bring it back."

HlywdCatft - Sure is some strong winds! I live about 30 mins east of KFNT ( pretty popular east-bound michigan airport ), and maybe around 1hr 40 minutes north of DTW.

Let me tell you, the winds are SUPER strong. Our dining table on my back deck flipped over on its side, and all the chairs are jammed up against the eastern-side of my deck, and my BBQ fell on its side and ashes are dumped all over, what a mess, hopefully it'll all blow away but most of it is sticking to the wet ground.

My outside sensor-lights are all on cause all the tree's are moving so violently its causing the sensor-lights to stay on constantly as its detecting movement.

Probably will be lots of major delays for eastern-michigan airports ( MBS, FNT, DTW ), and im sure YYZ will experience delays too, possibly BUF and SYR soon too. Right now its just very strong winds, about 45 minutes ago it was very strong winds along with super heavy rain. Appears to be clear outside though with no clouds right now, as i can see the stars.

Probably will get worse again soon though.

US has indeed restored mainline to CLT. Dan and I did see the evening flight come in at the An-225 gathering. Glad to see that we're still worth it!
