Thanks for the numbers. Just to clarify, Eastern operates TPA-HAV twice weekly, HOG once weekly, and SNU once weekly. All on the 738, with 162 seats. That puts their load factor closer to 81%, but small peas.

There's definitely a population base within a 30-mile radius. The airport to the north is delay-prone. Airport is NOT congested. Quick TSA lines. AFAiK, free parking...could be wrong.
