Interesting...AirTran is doing at BOS what they've done at LGA. The LGA routes to CAK and PHF have done very well. Wonder if BOS-ROC and BOS-BUF can be far behind. JetBlue doesn't get EMB-190's til next year and AirTran keeps taking delivery of 717's this year.

Air Tran is absolutely booming here in the Akron/Canton market. They now have non-stop service to LGA, TPA, CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO and ATL. And with the new service just announced to BOS, Air Tran has obviously increased its credibility and market share yet again. CAK is an absolutely wonderful regional airport. It offers a more than viable alternative to CLE regarding convenience and accessibility. Passengers can literally park a hundred feet or so from the main terminal entrance, the parking rates are roughly half of the rates required up at CLE, and you can literally disembark your aircraft and be out of the terminal in less than five minutes if all you have is carry-on baggage. In addition, Air Tran's fares to and from LGA are fractions of what CO charges up at CLE. For last-minute business travelers, CAK is a dream come true. Leisure-fare travelers living in Northeast Ohio, AND Western Pennsylvania also find CAK convenient and very easy to utilize.
