Well, here's to hoping that there isn't too much of this global warming/climate change so that there will be a lot of snow there next season, and there will be reason to fly there.
Last season, besides DEN, I believe that EGE had n/s service to all three NYC airports, LGA (Sat) EWR and JFK, and then to ORD, and then ATL, IAH, DFW, along with LAX and MIA. And a few years ago when I was up in Vail, almost everyone that I met seemed to be from the Miami area, so MIA seems a pretty good fit.
I also believe that EGE had n/s to SLC and MSP in the past, correct?
Now with IAD in the mix, these long and thins with EGE will most likely go as the snow falls......

They're sure not going to lose any money on that route - I just made a .bomb dummy booking and it rings up at $643. F was quoted at over $1700. Granted, there's always the bit about what price actually sells, but it is EGE.
737-700 currently being operated on the EGE-EWR route. It works, but it will not operate with a full pax load at any time. Unless it stops in DEN........which it has done a few occassions to accomodate all EGE traffic.

Quoting planeguy727 (Reply 11): Ok so I wasn't born in the US, but I thought IAD was in the East and EGE was in the west. Where's the midwest part?
Quoting RDH3E (Reply 12): He might have meant "middle-west" (not really considered a seperate entity) which would be places like CO, UT, ID, etc. As opposed to the midwest which is NE, OH, IL, IN, ND, SD etc.
Yeah,I probably should have used a different word to describe it.

This route would either need to be flown by the 737-700 or 757-200. Since its listed as a 737 on here im gonna assume its a 700. Saturday tends to be a very large day for arrivals and departures so the saturday only should be totally fine.
I have not heard this flight is revenue guranteed or not from vail resorts. I would think since its saturday only it might not be. Its just a large day and good place to use the planes. They probably got a nice offer from the airport though to add a new city though with some reduced fees and figured its a good spot to use a plane on a saturday and the EWR flights fill on o&d alone on saturdays so IAD can help to take more connecting passengers and northern virginia/dc has alot of skiiers who might pay a premium for a non-stop to save some time

Neither were the Pilgrims
**NEVER** apologize for that, okay ?
Amen, my entire family immigrated here from Africa, so cool, your part of the melting pot, like so many of us. Stay Proud of yourself always, where you come from is as important as where you are currently, honer it all.
Not apologizing at all. I find there are a number of things that I don't know about how things are labeled and discussed in the US. I was born a US citizen, just not in the physical country. Been here since I was 12 yet I still find things with which I am unfamiliar.
I want to live in an old and converted 727...
: I have felt the same feeling before, both here in America, and when I've travelled to other parts of the world, I hope it has been a good experience
: Does this flight have well timed connections for the GRU flight? I ask because on a flight from ORD-ASE on UA, there were a bunch of S. Americans that
