Grand Rapids Michigan

With numerous cities having airline service downgraded from mainline to RJ, what is the future of GRR? Will UAL downgrade from A320/737 to CRJ's? Right now, NWA, UAL, and Delta have mainline flights into GRR. At one time, GRR had mainline service from USAirways,TWA,Midwest Express, and American, Delta (went from mainline/turboprop to all RJ back to mainline/RJ). JetBlue will be announcing GRR service in the next couple years.

Any thoughts?

GRR is all 737 except for one CRJ flight with UAL, and I believe only one ARJ flight with NWA. The rest on NWA is quite a varied mix, about everything mainline narrowbody except for the 757.

Delta just recently (in the last year or so?) upgraded one or two of its flights to CVG to the MD88. So considering that upgrade (all the rest to CVG and ATL is CRJ) things look pretty decent.

Also, Midwest Express/Skyway recently brought back twice daily non-stops to DCA which is in addition to it's non-hub flights to FNT and CMH from GRR.

Unfortunately on the other hand I have heard that American Connection is pulling out of GRR thus discontinuing its 4x daily service to STL.

GRR had UAL A320's in the spring/summer time this past year.

Northwest operated 757's into GRR on SOME FLIGHTS in March/April the past couple years for the added spring breakage pax.
