Re: What's Going On In Nashville? - 2018

We have to remember that AA just gave up C-13/14 to SWA. This decision very well may be due to AA gate constraints at that time of day as the RONs are beginning to roll in at that point. In addition to taxi from the current IAB to B-11 is much easier from a logistical stand point. The flight is for...

That seems to be the assumption, high-volume TATL routes.

With that being said, they'll likely be based at EWR and IAD.
