Looks like in June 2001, mainline departures included:
Totaling 174 mainline departures a day

I remember flying a DL 767-400 to LAS out of CVG in the summer of 2004. (Sorry guys,I can't remember the flight number) but I know for a FACT it was: A) 2 hours delayed and B) PACKED!!! But it was a great flight anyway...my first on a 767!!

I used to fly the 738 between CVG and RIC all the time. The RIC-CVG flight left at 6 in the morning; in F a continental breakfast was served and "Just For Laughs" was played on the overhead screens. From CVG to RIC, an evening flight, a large salad would be served in F on the 738. I remember being disappointed there was no hot meal in either direction. At one point, I think Y even got those Sky Deli bags before the entering the plane.
I also got to fly CVG-HNL-CVG on the 764 back when CVG was just beginning to shrink and the 764 was the highlight of the day. I still remember coming in from warm and humid Honolulu into Covington airport, which was covered in foot deep snow. I remember we couldn't get home to RIC for a day because CVG ran out of de-icing fluids. This was Christmas of 04' I think.
The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

I would guess the peak in mainline departures occurred shortly before the CRJ came online with Comair. Most of the EMB-120 flights were to smaller cities, while cities such as ABE, AVP saw mainline flights. Once the CRJs came online, those cities and many other comparable cities saw the downgrades.
: that would be correct, no widebody's except for Europe (AMS gets a 757). In fact I think the 738 is about the largest mainline equip used there these
