New resident of Oklahoma City here. Does anyone have any clue whether this could happen?

Welcome to OKC. They did serve OKC from May 2005 (as HP Express) to PHX & LAS and continued through the merger up until around late 2008.

As far as having them return...I'd love to see it, but not sure when (or if) they will in the near future, especially with the WN/FL and CO/UA mergers about to take place. The good news, OKC is out of the downward spiral of the industry and is in positive passenger numbers for the year so far.

I believe if they return it would be from CLT, not from PHX. Personally they should do it from both as well as serve TUL

We just (finally) got mainline back on DL...so the numbers are starting to look a bit better. Hopefully, we'll get a better (meaning no more DL monopoly) southeastern connection when the WN buyout of FL comes to fruition. As far as US is concerned, I think it's highly doubtful we'll see them again for a long time. They launched both LAS and PHX when they started here (as HP express at the time) and got taken to town by WN on the numbers. CLT might be doable in an E70.

Most airlines (new entrants or new routes) in the state hurt themselves by adding both OKC and TUL mirror service to thin routes, as there is a point where the catchment areas do overlap. TUL would be a longer shot, they are still losing passenger numbers (versus last year, which was down against the year prior). That said, OKC and TUL are still probably not in the minds of US right now. They make smaller cities than OKC and TUL work, though....

Quoting AWACSooner (Reply 3):

What, you don't like getting taken for a ride (in every sense of the term) on the nonstop to ATL?   

As far as US goes, I don't think they'll be coming anytime soon. They'll be concerned enough about steeling themselves against WN. As mentioned above, if they do come back, the route will probably go east.

Flying friendly for a while, but is that a widget I see in the rear-view mirror?

My dimes worth is....
US Airways is watching these mergers take place around them and here they sit all alone in the corner.
They have to grow. What they have now will slowly in time get eaten alive by the big guys.

Goliath wins especially when David comes to battle without the slingshot.
US Airways have to add cities and routes. They don't have a choice.
That's my opinion and only an opinion.
