Does anyone know what the ABE schedule on NW will be when this settles out? We went from DC-9s and Avros, to props and CRJs, back to Avros and CRJ's, what's the final alignment going to be? We've definitely lost alot of seats though no matter how you look at it. If their schedule wasn't soooo freakin stupid here, they might get pax. Two departures before 8:30am, but yet none after 4:30pm?! That's not kind to the business pax at all who want to get out in the evenings... and why after my brief forray into WorldPerks, just stopped NW for the most part and fly CO now. In addition, one of their RON planes spends 12 hours on the ground here (or did as of a couple weeks ago, their schedule has changed so much here lately I lost track). That's what you call fleet utilization.
