Re: What's Going In CLE - 2018

Maybe just maybe 2019 will be the first year that UA adds seats to CLE since the hub closure. They’ve done nothing but subtract until now. Though not announced, and not a ton of seats— it looks like SJU and CUN weekend service are no longer on UA. CUN weekend service still showing for most of the y...

With a $40M drop in debt levels and if $100m or so of the existing $680M is being paid directly by UA, there's certainly enough ability to spend $17M or $40M for a decent FIS, which the city could leverage for mainland Europe or other services.
