In May 1989 I flew FAI-ANC-SEA-GEG-SFO-MRY on a UA 727-100. When I left Fairbanks at 11:30pm, it was still light out (Alaska Summers!!) and got into MRY in time for lunch. I remember seeing MRY bound 757's at the gate in SFO. They flew 757's into SBA back then as well. Both are now relegated to itty bitty jets and props. The MRY terminal is pretty small for a 189 seat plane. Beautiful airport though. You come in over the Pacific Ocean when you are on final if the winds are right.
I'm leavin on a jet plane. Don't know when I'll be back again....

With this news, I guess there's hope for BFL yet...if Monterey can get UA back to DEN, then with its new terminal, maybe BFL can convince United Express (already there) to bring in a couple of RJ's BFL-DEN.

BFL seems to be focused on SLC flights right now. From today's news:
Airport officials want to add another link to a national flight hub, possibly as early as June. They've held preliminary meetings with Delta Airlines. Now they are planning to meet in late March with the Atlanta-based carrier to discuss running a flight from Meadows Field to Salt Lake City. "It looks very promising," said Ray Bishop, director of Kern County Airports. "I'd hate to commit to it, but it looks very strong." http://www.bakersfield.com/business/story/5360439p-5381190c.html
