Sorry if I seemed "selfish" Bosman, but I don't see how worrying about the loss of over 300 job, and the economy and the image of an entire city, if not an entire region makes me seem selfish. Thanks for the sympathy 24291. You do not understand the significance this airline has made at our airport, and Ohio. We have most of the lowest airfares in Ohio and surrounding areas because of AWA. It spurred the introduction of Southwest and Delta Express in Columbus. The growth at the airport has also affected the downtown here at Columbus. The economy here has never been better. Even the local mewspaper did a full page article on how the airport and city depend oneach other. Maybe Bosman has never experianced the loss of a hub. We lost TAT, People Express, TWA, and now maybe AWA. I doubt TWA would want another try at CMH. And a major point, our region is SATURATED by airline hubs! DL in CVG, CO in CLE, NW in DTW, AA & UAL in ORD, and US in PIT. We are lucky to have AWA in Columbus. If they go, so are most possible plans of a hub here. So, "who cares if one hub is gone?" Well, around 2 million people in the Central Ohio area.
