It's nice to see that they are promoting their hub out of CMH. I still think they need more destinations to "America's West". But, what do I know? Anyways, CMH is a very nice airport...I hope people continue to support it in these tough times.

I believe all of these flights will be connecting through PHX and maybe LAS. The Airbuses are usually used for the flights between LAS/PHX and CMH. The 757's are mainly used for east coast/FL/BWI routes, but are used on west coast only flights (I've flown SEA-PHX and SAN-PHX on HP 757's).

LAX is also flown nonstop from CMH daily with an A319. Good to see America West promoting the Columbus hub. Now if only we could see some more destinations...

Also, America West downgraded the last 757 flight between CMH and PHX last month. Prior to September 11, there were 4 daily 757 flights into CMH flown by America West.
