Well, it's bookable on nwa.com...
This is definitely a head-scratcher. There was never any announcement for this service which begins in 3 and 1/2 weeks. Looking further ahead, it looks like the weekend nonstop ends in April. Maybe it's just for the spring break travel season? As far as I know, NWA has no intention of doing a build-up in CMH like they've done in MKE and IND, so I don't think that has anything to do with it. The only one they're really competing against is USAirways' weekend nonstop service to MCO. This is welcomed, but definitely odd.

NW is doing the same thing with IND-MIA, Sat only, only flying for about 7 weeks. They made no announcement of that route either. This could be in conjunction with all-inclusive packages and cruise ships. Either way I'm really surprised they don't issue press releases for these.

It's a smart move on their part. Columbus is the largest city in Ohio and of course home to Ohio State. Other colleges and universities are nearby and all of those seats will be gone. If they can logistically pull it off, adding another flight on Sundays might fill up seats, too. I am surprised that even after America West pulling out that some carriers haven't come in with some other/increased point to point service to Florida, New York, Los Angeles, etc. Northwest probably won't expand in Columbus like they did in Milwaukee or Indianapolis, but you can't rule out the possibility of them exploring some options, albeit limited. After all, Columbus -is- in the Heartland and this is a good way for them to build up some business.
if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport
