I ran across this elsewhere but can't find any reference to it at a.net.
At the Smith Barney conference, ExpressJet presented. One of the slides shows their planned growth for 2003. Of course, in a volatile industry everything is subject to change. But for those interested here are CoEx's possible new routes for next year.
In the west it looks like new service at FAT, BOI, COS, DEN, and ABQ among others.

I'm not sure if it is Denver or not. It's hard to tell from this map and I'm not as familiar with the geography of the state. So it could be increased frequency. The other possibility is that it is new service at another airport. But I'm not sure what is located in that corner of the state. Steamboat maybe? or another resort area?

I'm thinking that maybe Colorado Springs. Also looks like Newark-Tulsa and Houston-Tucson are on that map, and so is Cleveland-Miami. CO only has one daily MIA-CLE run (and I think three from FLL). Putting an RJ or two on the route would be great.

Where did you get it from the schedules for first ERJ to MIA, DEN flight, too. I decide that will be used ERJXR with more range nonstop flight, too. How about more expansion need to do into 2003? Please let us know!!!! Thanks!

BA. don't bet on that yet. There is talk of an ERJ mini-hub in like DEN or LAX, so this may or may not be the only ERJ service to DEN. With 275 RJ's eventually in the fleet the bloody things have to fly somewhere beyond the traditional CO Hubs, one would think!

Yes IAH-COS is a current ERJ route. These CLE-DEN and CLE-MIA runs are supposed to increase frequencies to these big markets. That's how you get the yields up. As for Denver, I think we are waiting for UA to announce their May schedule before we announce something big out there. This is just a guess but if UA cuts some capicity out in DEN in a big way you might see many more ERJ's operating out of DEN to the West Coast to get som CAL flight numbers initiated out West again. LAX is another place where COEX might start a mini-focus city again placing CAL routes out there again without the higher risk factor of 737's and up initially. LGA could be another CAL/COEX stronghold again with USAir being a lessor of an entire concourse owned by CAL until 2015 and subleased to USAir. If USAIR can't pay the port authority bills, then CAL has to pay. CAl isn't going to let the concourse sit empty for a Airtran/Jetblue to enter. You will see XRJ's/LRJ's and 737's at those gates. One thing is for sure,2003 will be interesting in the airline business.

Good catch. I have wondered why this hasn't happened before now. MSY has been within the range of the LR's for years with weak loads on the 737 and only 1 flight a day doesn't provide the options most business travelers want. I feel for those who regularly traveled this route and were accustomed to the upgrade but feel it is in the best interest of the airline to deploy the ERJ on this route for a while and add a frequency or two.
I'm pulling this from you know where but I can see the following being announced next year.
What do you think? Any additions?

IAH- TLH... That's cool to see the Continental will be moving back into TLH. We lost Continental Connection when FL moved into TLH in 2001. Another flight out west. By the way, how is SkyWest service to DFW from TLH doing, I haven't heard much about that since they started it.

Yipieee!!!!!!!! Now I can travel coast to coast on a RJ with no room for a upgrade and no meal! Nice....... This is stating to make Southwest look better and better.
I think I will stick to Northwest and get my upgrades and meals instead of CO.....
It would be nice if CO MAINLINE could come into the Hartford market with N/S to IAH. It had a good amount of O & D traffic, and ofcourse feeder to the west. They had N/S service pre 9-11 with 737's. Oh but those were the days before ERJ-ER's.....
