I think FAT/BIL were two of the first destinations talked about once we took delivery of hte XRJ....
SBA....would be a good route to possibly hit the malibu area
BUR....I would love for us to go to BUR....a very nice little airport
SMF....not sure about this....our load factors are very high right now.....but obviously it would only be in addition to our mainline jets.



okay, I'm waiting for the rich to spread the wealth around to me. Please mail your checks to my house.

IAH-FAT

Glad to hear it may finally be close. Another connecting hub from Fresno will be a good addition.

I thought the departure length at CLD was 4900 feet, landing at CLD is 4600 feet. Nevertheless, glad to here CLD might actually get a jet flight.  Wow!

I guess COEX heard that San Diego North County wanted a new airport more than any part of the county. They are tired of traveling down to San Diego, up to SNA or even further to LAX to catch a flight. All three airports are getting a little too crowded for a population of about 1 million looking for a transportation portal.

Could an RJ make it from IAH to Bismark, Fargo, or Minot, nonstop? I remember in the old hub days of DEN CO used to serve the upper midwest... It would be great to see them back again!

What about IAH to Santa Barbara

CO added CLE-OMA about 5 years back and within 18 months, it was changed to OMA-EWR (3 times daily)

This route was reduced after about a year to 2 times daily where it has been ever since. I noticed though that it returning to 3 times daily this summer. In addition, OMA-IAH will see a sixth N/S added this summer.

In regards to DSM, they tried service to EWR and it didn't even last 6 months. If EWR won't work, I highly doubt that CLE would be added. I think that OMA-CLE is a little more likely, probably in the 2 year time frame.

I believe that there will be a IAH-FAT, IAH-BIL, and IAH-SBA. Those three seem likely to me. Fresno is an underserved market IMO, BIL needs a connection to the south, and SBA is booming as far as air service goes recently too. All three of those seem viable to me.

Don't look foward to them, except EWR-HOU, which already operates.

Never saw a CO plane in Houston Hobby - HOU, Do CO actually flies EWR - Houston Hobby?

They used to fly HOU-CLE and HOU-EWR, having started the route after they stopped their COEx EFD-IAH shuttle service, but they stopped all of their service to HOU recently, right at the same time when WN said that they were stopping service to IAH.

A gentleman's agreement, perhaps?

Weird agreement I must say - CO won't fly from its EWR hub to HOU and Southwest won't fly from it's DAL hub to IAH, it makes no sense.
Does Southwest fly ISP > HOU and/or ISP > AUS nonstop?

Funny thing, I was just thinking about this today. The EWR service was very popular, especially with international connections (a nice alternative to ORD via UA). The problem was that the flight was in the mid-afternoon; prime time for ground delays. All the pax had to be re-accommodated, which was usually a chore, and the flights ended up going out almost empty. As for CLE, I just don't think there's the demand when you can connect to the cities CO hits from CLE on UA and NW from DSM.

As for new service, I know CHA is the next one to be announced, followed by the FAT and BUR.

The only thing wrong with SBA is their ramshackle terminal building. Look out if you have more than 2 full flights operating out of the terminal at once. Not much room and less in amenities.

Just looked and see that COExpress decided NOT to start their BOI-IAH 1:30am flight as planned.
I guess the TSA bitched that they didn't want to have to staff the checkpoint that late. Bunch of idiots. Of course, I bet our stupid airport management here probably had something to do with it as well. They have as much sense and spine as a jellyfish!

Cant wait to fly 3+ hours to FAT from IAH. That will be a wonderful ride. I think I'll stick to 57's into SLC and a short hop to FAT.

SprxUSA,

That sucks...I still hope for a 3rd flight though...maybe at a different time?

What about CLE-BOI...although I doubt it with COex. The only scenerio I could imagine is mainline and that don't seem likely.

Thats odd I have never known TSA to turn down additional staffing requests. For the most part TSA at smaller airports are fighting to keep the staffing they have. The only guarantee is more flights.



It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

CLE - SAV used to exist I think. I'm surprised there's not at least seasonal service with the amount of NE Ohioans who vacation in the Hilton Head, South Carolina and Georgia low country area.
