In the never ending saga for Alpena, Michigan to acquire air service that would replace Delta a proposal was submitted by Air Choice One. It was hoped that the SkyWest service that serves MKG to ORD could be extended to include service to APN. Apparently SkyWest didn't bite.
What airline do you think could best supply air service to APN. The city would prefer to retain Delta. Delta wants out.

Is Air Choice One The Right One Here?
"In recent rounds of bidding, Air Choice One submitted bids to service a number of communities in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Mississippi, as well as Iron Mountain and Muskegon in Michigan. Ultimately DOT officials selected SkyWest to service Muskegon and as readers will remember, it was the hope of some locally to piggyback with Muskegon to attract SkyWest here on a shared route, so both airports could benefit with a larger plane. Obviously, SkyWest did not bid on the Alpena route in the latest RFP period."
