I know that UA had a crew base at CLE for some time. Can anyone confirm when this particular base was closed down?
Cheers.

Good question. I would guess sometime between 1989 and 1992.

Who knows? Maybe they will bring it back if UA and CO merge

It was after 1990 and before '93. So either '91 or '92.

I believe it was just about the same time when CO closed their IAD base.... 88 or 89....We closed IAD and opened up CLE, UA closed CLE and opened up IAD....

Apologies for going off topic , but I never knew that CO used to have an IAD base . It really is amazing the things you find out on this site .

CO had a big New York Air operation out of IAD.

Gone are the days where CO had decent presence at GSO, MSY, IAD, and of course DEN.

New York Air had a big hub at IAD, when we merged with CO, the HUB became a CO hub in Feb 1987. Presidential Air used to be a major feeder for Continental before CO pulled the plug on the base, and 'traded' bases with UA for CLE  
A lot of CO/NY people are still hoping for the base to come back (maybe soon it will .... the writing is on the wall)

Doh! I knew that , funny what you manage to forget over the years , then again , everything is always changing in this industry so I suppose eventually one is bound to lose track .
