With WN and FL serving all three of those airports in Virginia anyone have predications if all three will survive or will one be on the chopping block?

Quoting fascm170 (Reply 1):

I think the OP meant that all three airports are served by either WN or FL. WN serves ORF and FL serves RIC and PHF.

If any airport is on the bubble it would be PHF. I don't think there is a large enough population in the Hampton Roads area to support WN ops at two separate airports. WN is well established in ORF and the FL routes from PHF to LGA, BOS, and ATL could be transferred to ORF. WN might add a few cities out of RIC as well. Those living in the PHF area could drive to RIC or ORF to catch a WN flight. The driving time is about the same to both airports. In many cases it might be faster to drive to RIC knowing the tunnel bottlenecks in the ORF area.
