as many of you have heard, the Swimming Trials for the 2008 Olympics Will be held in Omaha. Does this mean bigger planes will be coming to Eppley?

If so, can't wait!

I wouldn't count on it. The Huskers going to a bowl game would draw more traffic to the airport.  Smile


Any opinion/comment posted is that of my own and not that of Southwest Airlines Co.

Oh, please, not the Huskers debate again! We went through the same thing when the UNO Marching Band went to the Inaugural Parade! I mean, I was part of a marching band that made History and who gets the bigger press on Inauguration Day? HUSKER RECRUITS! I mean, we're talking about the Olympic trials! Something that could change the face of Omaha as we know it. Don't you think we at least MIGHT be seeing something bigger than a 757?

Bored seeing loads of 737's and CRJ's all the time? Go to Offutt, usually much more interesting spotting than OMA.

I wouldn't count on bigger planes coming into OMA because of swimming trials.

They draw about 7000 a day, but I would assume most of those are repeat and some will be local.

Still getting 5000 people into and out of Omaha in a couple days by air would take over 15 150 seat aircraft a day on top of the usual traffic.

I could see a few airlines scheduling a larger plane or two on top of normal frequency, and charging high fares.

How does an airline deal with full flights one direction, nearly empty the other, then the reverse of that 7 days later?



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
