Any Thought Of New EUG Service?

There is nothing in the archives about new service to Eugene for some time. So here is my question.

As there anyone thinking about coming to EUG in 2007 or so? They currently have:

Mesa/US
- LAS 1x daily CRJ
- PHX 2x daily CRJ (200? & 900)

OO/UA
- PDX 3x daily EMB?
- SFO 6x daily CRJ(700)
- DEN 2x daily

QX
- PDX 3x daily Q2/3/400
- SEA 5x daily Q2/3/400
- MFR-LAX 1x daily Q400 or CRJ(700)
- RDM-LAX 1x daily Q400 or CRJ(700)

OO/DL
- SLC 2x daily CRJ

I know that OO/DL was at 3x daily, not sure when it was downgraded. After F9 selects a new regional and adds equipment above the 9 they had with QX, could they possibly add a flight or two.

What about UA reinstating a LAX run with regional equipment rather than a 737 like the good old days? Could UA do a ORD run with a E170 or is that a long shot?

I think that CO & AA are staying well away as a 735 or MD80 may be overkill. BOI couldn't even support a 735 from CO and the ERJ's I don't think would have the legs or demand for that long of a flight.

The gate space is highly limitedbut they could share with both OO/DL (since there is only 2 turns a day) or with Mesa/US (only 3 turns daily). I know for the OO/DL service the airport guaranteed $400K or so and the chamber of commerce got businesses to guarantee an additional $400K worth of tickets to be purchased so a new entrant could get some kick backs of sort. Any thoughts from anyone?

oh good old EUG.

Haven't flown in there in a few years, and after school, don't have much need to.

That said, flying home from thanksgiving, it was crazy how many kids were OSU/UO students. EUG is expensive, might as well go to PDX and catch a ride back.

no insight into new service, would be nice, I assume the new parallel runway is operational?



They're not handing trophies out today

Sure is, I have even taken off from and landed on it, it's a little odd when you are used to a bigger runway though. Longer taxi times though. It is convenient for the self serve gas. Nice runway, they say it will mainly be for the GA.

So true, I live in PDX now so not much need for flights from EUG but all the family still lives there. It has been a while since new flights were added, other than the LAX and SLC flights which have been going for 1+ year now. It is a great airport with short lines and convenient parking. I flew out of there Aug 05 with the non-stop to LAS and was surprised out how comfortable it still is, although PDX is still a little nicer and a hell of a lot better for spotting.
