In today's Charlotte Business Journal they quote Andrew Nocella as saying that US Airways will announce new domestic destinations from CLT in a few weeks. Anyone want to venture a guess?

Could they finally be announcing the long rumored Austin and San Antonio flights???

Might it possibly be OMA or ABQ?

I think I like their chances...
Did the Charlotte Business Journal mention whether any of these flights might be US Airways Express?

CLT-SAT and AUS were loaded today.
Both start May 4th. Twice daily on CR9s.

My Guesses in order:

AUS (growing fast and tech city, No US eastbound)
SAT (very large MSA with no USairways eastbound)
OMA (very poor service to SE United States, No US eastbound (except connect in MCI on BE9)

No major surprise there...congrats to AUS and SAT! And thanks for the heads-up. Let us know if you find anything else!

Where do you see this? I just checked usairways.com and orbitz. Nothing.

There is sometimes a delay from the time the flights are loaded in the reservation system to the time you can find them on Expedia, Orbitz, etc. And they are probably not showing on USAirways.com because they have not been officially announced yet. Give it a bit of time and you'll see 'em.

Anything on OMA? I am keeping my fingers crossed. I will fly this several times a year!

I have no doubt that OMA could support a daily to CLT. Good luck and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Just because AUS and SAT have been loaded doesn't mean that there aren't more to come. Other than these two markets I feel and have felt for some time that OMA and OKC should logically be the next two to come online. Let's just wait and see...keep the faith. I believe it will happen for OKC soon.

Just remember, if OMA was really dieing to have OMA-CLT non-stop, Midwest could start it. Although, people need it for conections, correct?

OMA-CLT would not exist solely on O&D so I don't think that YX would start this one. US OMA-CLT would allow connections to the Southeast, East Coast, Caribbean, etc. I think that a 1X Daily E175 would suffice for now. Let the route grow and maybe a second daily in the future. But OMA is a definite hole in the CLT network as is OKC. US is working on growing their Southeast network as well and just started CLT-DAB 3X Daily with the E175.

That MCI flight is ZV and is going away, isn't it? In any event, OMA is probably a logical place to look next (especially since it's already a CR9 city).

Here's hoping for FWA and EVV... FWA needs more service to the south, and EVV has been rumored for some time.


I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.

I would be interested to find out what the LFs are for both FWA-ATL and EVV-ATL on DL. That could be a telling stat if anybody could share those.

DL GRR-ATL ops 4x per day and GRR-CVG 5x per day all w/ 50 seat CRJs. I'd think US would want a piece of that.

US tried GRR-PHL for a while after many many years of operating GRR-PIT, then pulled out of GRR altogether. CLT just might work better.....



Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

Omaha is really loyal to Star Alliance. 9 out of every 10 business travelers I know only fly UA from Omaha. OMA-CLT would allow for *A connections to FL etc while avoiding ORD (ugh). Midwest doesn't have any of this. Why do you think Midwest OMA-LAX was dropped? OMA-LAX on UA would be a entire different story. Not only is it *A, but it would have ample connections in LAX. 2 things Midwest can't provide.

Does anyone here think US at CLT might go to 600 daily flights?  hyper 

With these new additions, I think they're easily beyond 550 or even 560 daily departures?

Any chance of anymore European routes - maybe Paris, Madrid, Rome or Amsterdam? They say the international routes are where the money is to be made for the US airlines...

With more 757's coming online to fly some of the route from PHL to western Europe, these could replace the 767's and possibly free one or two of these up to fly CLT-Europe.

I don't think the 757's would have the legs to fly non-stop TATL from Charlotte to Europe.

In the case of AUS, I don't think so. US announced it's intention to serve AUS-CLT way back in early September of 2001.

Link to old press release

The service would have begun on December 9, 2001, but the 9/11 attacks happened and the service never started.

Nice to see they're finally starting the route even if it did take another 6 and a half years.  Smile

25 Steeler83 : Sweetness! I wonder when it is slated for completion. Finally, US can have a major hub like what AA has at DFW, UA at ORD, etc...

42 Super80DFW : I think both PHX and LAS are pretty well served, not just by US, but by WN also.

64 AWACSooner : TUL doesn't even have service on US to PHX and LAS! OKC will get the CLT run looooooooooooooong before TUL comes on the radar screen.
