Yes, F28s and 727s did fly into Key West many years ago. I believe the 727s did the nonstops to Miami, a 126 mile flight.
I just discovered the good news.
It will be nice to see the CRJ-200 and CRJ-700 flying directly over my school on approach. I was surprised though that the CR7 will be doing the nonstop to ATL, but now that I see that it has restricted passenger loads taking off it makes more sense. I was just hoping for CRJs to MCO, but the ATL flight...Yahoo!
Here is a question- Will 35 passengers be enough to generate enough profit on the flight to ATL, or will a mostly full CR7 from ATL be enough to offset the loss of revenue on the return flight? I am sure the fares (high!) may help, but can somebody better explain how this will work? Thanks.
Anyways, it is good news for us down in EYW. Can't wait!
