Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2019

I think WN could determine a lot in the future of BNA Vision. If it turns out they want the rest of C, then A or B would definitely have to be expanded.

Tells me that some of the more random adds by G4 such as SYR and RIC must actually be working out. Will be interesting to see how they expand in the future out of BNA.


Hence, I would like to see WN take on LIT and DSM.

This leaves BNA, STL and CVG as the only remaining major midsized markets that don’t have NK. BNA is the most surprising given it’s massive tourist appeal, I wonder what’s going on? You'd need to add SAT, MKE, SLC, SMF, and CLT to that list. BNA from what I've heard has space issues. BNA doesn’t ev...
