I know there had been some talk on this board a while ago about CO starting service to GNV. The idea is officially dead now.

I'm not real surprised. I don't think GNV has a large enough business market to make it work. There's still a chance at landing service from AA or increased service by DL/US.

That's disappointing, although I can tell you there's definitely a better market for AA with service to MIA....

In a related note, US Airways Express will be eliminating turboprop aircraft @ GNV. Beginning this spring, all service will be by jet or RJ.

Yea - depending on how long US lasts, you might not see any US jets at GNV.

Very strong chances that American Eagle will be landing at GNV soon. They have shown a lot of interest in GNV pending incentives, and CO's decession not to fly to GNV opens up the incentives to them. While Contineal was approached by GNV officials, American Eagle actually initiated discussions a few months ago by approaching GNV officals. They propose a daily ERJ to DFW and one or two daily ATRs to MIA.

The only problem I see with AA is that AA wants a lot of money in incentives. Last I heard AA wanted something in the ballpark of 2.2 million for the first year. That's a lot of subsidization for only two or three flights especially when one of them will likely be an ATR. This indicates to me that AA has real doubts about this market and expects big losses in the beginning.

Yes, that is true. AA wants a lot of financial backing to make this work. We'll just have to wait and see how talks go.
