I did not have enough space to fit this in the topic but NW will be cutting mainline to ROC in February:

The schedule will be as follows:

ROC-DTW

5 CRJs

ROC-MSP

1 CRJ

At the airport

Around 5:15 a.m., whipping winds momentarily lifted a 50-passenger regional aircraft into the air, said Airport Director David Damelio. The aircraft, which flies under the US Airways banner, was parked at a gate for overnight storage and was not operating at the time of the incident, he said.

The incident damaged the front gears and tail of the aircraft, Damelio said.

As a result, the plane’s flight to Reagan National Airport by Washington D.C. was cancelled and the aircraft will not be used until mechanics are able to evaluate and repair the damaged plane, Damelio said. Several other flights, all involving small regional planes, were cancelled early today because of the windy weather.

Air traffic controllers also evacuated the airport’s control tower for about 12 minutes, when the winds reached their peak, he said.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A wind storm packing hurricane-force gusts whipped across upstate New York early Wednesday, felling trees and power lines and knocking out electricity to more than 70,000 homes and businesses.

The storm was blamed for tilting two tractor-trailers on their sides and triggering a multitude of fender-benders during the morning rush-hour in Rochester. No injuries were immediately reported.

Was it an Air Wisconsin CRJ? if so, then the northeast weather hasnt been kind to them, the one that landed hard at PVD's fate is still get to be determined.


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

Yes it was. All the flights between ROC and DCA are Air Wisconsin flights.

Just to let you know, I had already started a thread on this topic:

US Airways Express RJ Damaged By Wind At ROC 1-9 (by DCA-ROCguy Jan 9 2008 in Civil Aviation)

However, I didn't have the part about NW cutting mainline at ROC. That is extremely surprising and a large amount of seat capacity. NW has always held westbound market share quite well at ROC against UA and AA. Is it seasonal? Are they cutting mainline at other Upstate NY stations as well? That's going to leave a real westbound capacity hole.

My bad I did not see that. I do not know how to but if you would like to change or delete I do not have a problem with that. I think this move is permanent because this has also happened in cities like GSO, DAY, BTV, PWM and MDT. I do think ROC will get the larger 72 seat jets when they start coming on line in large numbers. The only other change I see NW made in upsate citites is eliminating Airbuses in ALB.

That does suck. I've always enjoyed flying Northwest, but if I can avoid regionals, it looks like Delta will be my preferred airline now.

Heh. That looks choreographed. Perhaps it's an ad for NW?

No problem, anyway it's helpful to have more ROC news. I'm glad to hear that NW mainline is coming back in March--and according to the other thread a DC-9-50 too!

Everything always seems to happen on my days off!!!

I too am glad to hear about NW's D9Ss coming back in march. Does anyone happen to know more about AAs situation this year? Last I was told by an AEagle employee that this was the year that the contract was up and that they were going to bring back the MD80s to atleast ORD. Anyone know more?

The RJ that landed hard in PVD appears to have nothing to do with weather. Based on info I have seen, and the NTSB report, the incident was completely pilot error. But Northeast weather hasn't been kind to any airline period.
