It'll definitely be interesting to see what they do with CLT/how large of a station they will make, until the merger FL had been on a downward trend at CLT so it will be intriguing to see what WN does with it.
The future? Well of course the most pressing topic about CLT's future is an AA/US merger. I think most will agree it will always remain a hub, but food for thought is what size it will be, what routes will stay or go...or be added if one takes Doug Parker's statements at face value and believes that CLT would expand to 900 daily flights with a merger, IMO that's bull, but will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.

What does the demographics look like for CLT? I know there are several trans-Atlantic services and US has a big presence with mainline and Express - is Charlotte a big destination for tourists, lots of O&D or connecting flights or all of the above? Is Charlotte a wealthy city or hit big by recession etc?
