I am saddened when this sort of thing happens to a regional airport. I realize that LAF is very close to IND however wouldn't be the perfect place for Cape Air? When students at Purdue travel wherever during the holidays couldn't this work. 3 flights a day to one hub city -- how bout that......

Wow, I didn't even know they still had service. I thought they shut down a few years ago. I should know this, but wasn't it Corprate Express J31's flying from STL and that was pretty much it? I thought they were the last ones to service the airport and they pulled out. Even though my last six months with Trans States was in STL, I never really got to talk with those guys.

Quoting KarlB737 (Thread starter):

Sure, if you only operate the service during holiday periods, but what about the rest of the year? Not to mention that the college crowd gravitates toward cheap fares, which would not likely be viable if using a Cape Air type operation. Generally speaking, college towns are not great air service markets.

With lots of low yield seasonal college students and IND, MDW, and ORD all being relatively close, why would an airline ever start up service to LAF? This is not to mention anything about fuel being over $100 a barrel.
