Excellent! DAB deserves more service.

What equipment will be used?

Perfect timing for the Daytona 500 and speedweeks. This is probably one of the few routes that will see 100% load factors during the inaugural week of service.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I never thought I would ever see the day that a Mesa flight will be recieving a water cannon salute upon arrival somewhere.  Smile

On MESA, which is a bad decision. No reliability with them, except a reliable delay.

Well, at least Air Wisconsin will be groundhandling them, so they shouldn't be Airport Ops delays!

But there will be the usual bad attitudes and delay's for no reason on the MESA side.

The Saturday ORD flight should do good, hopefully that will go daily before too long.


Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

I am confused on why Mesa isn't handling their own ground ops? Plus Air Wis. wasn't even here in DAB b4 now, correct?

Well, Mesa and Air Wis along with all the other commuter airlines bid for their contracts. For United, they were saving money by hiring Mesa to fly for them and Air Wis to do ground handling.

and you're right, ZW was not in DAB before. This, i believe is our most southern station.
