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

I think that having these two ULCC's means that BNA is probably going to be waiting a good long time for NK. Just not sure what is left for them. Also, I haven't dived into the schedules much, is there enough room for them to gate share with G4 or someone else? Or is this going to require a separat...
