Surprised FL hasn't jumped into this market.

How much longer until CID has too many flights and not enough pax? G4 recently announced SFB right?

I'm pretty sure MFE would bring some very good loads to ATL.

But unfortunately, AA and CO have dominated MFE again, and always! banghead 

I'd love to see DL to MFE.

Question kind of on topic...maybe.

The other day, like yesterday...I saw an ASA CR7 in BIL. Was this really ASA, or was OO just using it's newly acquired aircraft?

That was an ASA flight from SLC. Per scope clauses at DL, Skywest was not permitted to operate 70-seaters for them, so DL decided to send ASA and their CR7s to SLC to do just that.

MFE = McAllen, Texas
SGF = Springfield/Branson, Missouri

CID is on track to pass one million passengers this year, I am sure we can handle at least 3 daily ATL flights. We used to have about 8 MD80's/717's to STL per day on TWA, not to mention mainline from UA and NW (now we are down to one mainline NW flight, in addition to G4's M80's to LAS). SFB is only going to be 2x per week. ATL is a major business center and hub, one that is sorely missing from CID when you look around at the airports in the region of similar size who do have ATL service (MLI, DSM, PIA...for example). I know our airport commission has gone to DL to ask for this service.

How long until you stop complaining you don't have enough service? And you can't really compare CID and CRW.. CID has much higher boardings.

Exactly.. I would expect CID to get ATL anyways since MLI, GRB, MSN, and BMI are all getting ATL instead of CVG. Also as I've said before, I think just 2x CRJ to MEM to connect to 2 of the 3 banks would do well. Also on my wish list is a Mesa flight to PHX but that would be unlikely and I don't want to get carried away.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

Never....... The catchment area populations are close in size ; despite the boardings.

Hows CID similar to DSM in size, im not disagreeing with the others, but I thought DSM was much larger.


Calm down Iowaman. It'll be okay.

Ah yes. The root of the word is CATCH, which means to retain. Therefore, CID has a higher catchment area because it retains and boards more people than does CRW, no?

I also have wanted this route for a long time as well. CID pretty much has its bases covered for heading east (ORD, DTW, CVG, MSP, STL) and west (DEN, MSP, DFW, LAS). The one spot we are sorely missing is access to the SE United States. Having either MEM or ATL flights would help out in that regard.

Yes, as I'm sure people would much rather fly SGF-ATL-LAX than SGF-SLC-LAX.  sarcastic

When Wal-Mart employees want to go to LAX they take AA.



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

Sorry about that. I realized too late that we are talking about SGF and not XNA.

Just no planes for the SLC route.

Wow--the DL ATL build up of the heartland continues...reminds me of when AA added these similar destinations to their mega hub in DFW. Which city do you think has the next best chance of receiving ATL service?
