Re: Six Airlines Bid for EAS at Scottsbluff

Let's see if Skywest does a DEN-BFF-ORD route? They seem to get routings into ORD (Clarksburg, Cape Girardeau, Paducah, Ironwood, etc.). I would think BFF-ORD would be far too long and thin to sustain service at gate-constrained ORD however I do see some potential of running a tag flight to LNK (St...

Re: TATL Flights / Wide bodies vs Narrow Bodies / Benefits for the airline

Not every route can support a narrow body Even if the CASM is less if you have 100 empty seats you'll still lose money. It alao depends where it's going from. AA for example may run a 767 on JFKAMS while running a 757 on PHLAMS right down the road. This is just due to the different demand levels.
