Here are some interesting sidenotes -
- TZ will offer roundtrip service from OGG/HNL to PIE, it will be one stop in either LAX or SFO. Here in SFO the AM HNL departure will come from PIE and continue on. The evening PIE departure will come back in from OGG. LAX schedule will be the opposite cities.

- The 738 will operate the SFO - IND trip
- The 753 will operate the PIE and CUN trips

Gosh, you people are quick!

As I've said before, I sure hope someone knows what we're doing... The 753 is a lot of capacity to dump into primarily low-yield leisure markets. Of course, it brings with it the lowest single-aisle CASM around. That said, it's always heartening to see the airline grow -- especially during these tremulous times.

I wish there was room in Indy to construct a true hub that could support (or vice-versa) C8 feed service. It's my feeling that relying solely on MDW for connx traffic is going to prove a poor choice as the airport only will be getting busier...throw in winter Wx and get ready for a winter saga a la NW in DTW.

Congrats to those of you in stations that will be seeing increased flying as a result of this announcement. Long live TZ.
