US Airways: CLT-Hamilton, TX?

I wanted to post this last month but never got around to uploading the images until just now...

Last month's US Airways inflight magazine showed a route to Hamilton, TX, a town in northern Texas of less than 3,000 people. I somehow find it hard to believe that US flies the CLT-MNZ route.

Does anyone else think this is more than a joke by whoever published the map?

Well, the airport doesn't even come up on the US Airways booking engine. I'd assume it's some sort of error.

Secret CIA flights..  beady  Probably a joke by someone..back in 1977 the official map of Michigan added a new city just south of the state line. The city in question: BeatOSU. The folks in Columbus weren't to happy about it.

Ive noticed a couple things in the quality control deptartment at US. Things like this really shouldnt slip through the cracks. Just a few weeks ago they announced DAB but they forgot to load it into their res system for like 2 days, though they schedule was loaded into OAG days before the announcement.

Most people would think that mistakes happen, but trivial things like that should be noticed by at least one of the many layers of management. The airport engineering firm i work for, we have layers upon layers of checks for quality control before the final document goes out. When i see trivial mistakes like that i see it as a rather significant managment flaw of USairways.



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

Colgan Air has its headquarters at Manassas Field (IATA MNZ, FAA HEF) in northern Virginia. I think it's likely that IATA's MNZ (Manassas, VA) ended up in a list of airports served by Express carriers, and then the map editor checked a database with FAA coordinates for airports and selected FAA MNZ (Hamilton, TX).

Funny that Colgan doesn't serve CLT, but I'm wondering if there's a regularly scheduled nonrevenue flight between CLT and HEF for maintenance.

Definitely plausible, though it could also be that US flew a one-time charter to MNZ on the day's schedule they pulled to make the route map.

Hmmm....CLT-MNZ. You've discovered the location of the super secret NASCAR proving grounds. And didn't you know that all of the "cool" NASCAR bubbas winter in Hamilton???
