Obviously this is not 'stop the presses' news, but AA Eagle is abandoning the Worcester Regional Airport, 50 miles west of Boston. Big yawn there. A city that doesn't care enough about its airport to keep the service it has, let alone attracting new service. Massport, which runs Logan as well as Hanscom Field and Worcester (for the time being) is cutting its losses at Worcester and handing the keys back to the city in a 'Here...YOU do it!' gesture of disdain for the horrible, hard-to-get-to, hilltop airport.
I do have to thank AA Eagle, though, for focusing on Worcester and Portland and Bangor and all the other New England cities and leaving Manchester to the 'real' airlines! Their 'little' RJs would certainly siphon traffic away from United (which uses 757s and A320s here) and USAirways (which uses A321s/A320s/A319s now and 757s next month). Without that bit of wisdom on their part, these real airlines would likely use smaller planes up here. So, a big Thank You to AA Eagle for staying away!!!
