This has been discussed tangentially in several threads, but I thought I'd start a thread to keep track of all the changes...

ATL-HHH starts March 2
ATL-TRI starts March 2
MEM-TRI ends March 2 (?-- not sure on the date)
MEM-GTR starts May 4 (being discussed here)

Are there other changes happening? More new routes ex-ATL? More cuts?

Well, there will have to be a bridge route. These flights will be staffed by MEM based crews and they will not be deadheading. Originally we were told we'd be bridging over TRI, but that's no longer the case. No idea what the new bridge route will be. Our MEM flight attendants/pilots should see it in their march bid packet. I can't seem to find one right now.


Good goes around!

DTW-TRI remains on the Saab. Of course, that doesn't help us with getting MEM crews to ATL (for IIRC TRI was the only Saab bridge city between MEM and the northern hubs).

Well, that's always possible. MEM crews might bridge to Detroit, bridge to Atlanta, and do Atlanta routes from there out. MEM crews do definitely do some Saab flying out of Detroit. The only hub that's totally isolated from MEM Saab flying is MSP. And at XJ, double bridges aren't terribly uncommon. I've done MSP-LAN-DTW-BHM-MEM-DSM-MSP, hitting all three hubs in a two day trip.

They aren't-- or, at least, they haven't been. I can't find any bridge cities to MEM besides TRI in the current schedule, though... maybe you can help me out.

Searching through the schedules, it would seem that LEX may be the new bridge point between MEM and DTW for Saabs. They have added a single Saab each way on DTW-LEX effective 3/2 as well. That will leave the following Saab flights at LEX:

Inbound:
NW 3059 DTW 10:00 LEX 11:55 SF3
NW 2700 MEM 09:15 LEX 11:56 SF3
NW 2742 MEM 14:25 LEX 17:15 SF3

Outbound:
NW 2701 LEX 12:17 MEM 13:17 SF3
NW 3060 LEX 12:25 DTW 14:20 SF3
NW 2715 LEX 17:47 MEM 16:45 SF3

As that schedule shows, it would appear they could easily route aircraft and/or crews MEM-LEX-DTW on NW 2700/3060 or the DTW-LEX-MEM on NW 3059/2701.
