I guess i thought that CO downgraded to all Express. Whenever im expecting company it appears that its COEX flights ownly on the live feed from the airport. Plus the flight numbers seem high for mainline.

"One reason I like flying on NWA so much! Whereas AA, CO, and DL spits on ROC while maintaining mainline service to BUF and even SYR, NWA has bucked a trend!"
SYR has only managed to retain DL, NW and US mainline. We get AEagle and UAex to ORD instead of mainline . We used to get DC10s back in the day! Also, we don't have DL mainline to CVG. Don't know if we ever have, either.

DL had all mainline service to CVG until 1998. It was 2 732's a day. In 1998 DL added a CRJ to SYR increasing service to 3x per day to CVG. In 2000 it went to 2x CRJ and 1x 72S. Then 3x CRJ and 1x 72S in 2002. Then upon retirement of the 72S CVG became an all CRJ route with 4x per day.
It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

NW has dropped neither ROC or BUF as mainline cities
When American cut ROC back to all-Jungle Jets in 2003, Northwest promptly added a daily DC-9 nonstop to MSP without reducing seat capacity to DTW. (which is now an ARJ, but still an increase). There are advantages to holding onto all those good old workhorse DC-9's--like being able to afford to continue mainline service to many medium-size destinations.
I wouldn't be surprised to see DL mainline at ROC again soon, either. We're up to 5x daily CR7, 2x daily CRJ to ATL, and 3x daily CR7 to CVG.
