Wonder which gate these planes will use at CLE.
Plans are for Commutair to use the piers at D-21 and D-25, while COEX will keep the piers at D-17 and D-28.
shame on Continental-- no announcement on CO's website either. Their support of Cleveland is tenuous at best.
What's the big deal? It's not even CO
service-it's a codeshare. It's not like it's announcing CLE
4) CLE can't even support a lousy 757 to London year round, whereas smaller O/D markets such as RDU and CVG and CLT can.
Take a look at the loads out of IAH
this off-peak? The 777's out of IAH
are nowhere near full, and EWR
frequencies have been reduced. In fact, a 757 has been running on some of the EWR
instead of a 762. Right now, NOTHING is doing well for any of the carriers, if you've noticed.
flight is packed during the summer-I know, I've worked a good 350 of them since 1999. The best cure for CLE
and all hubs would be a stronger economy.
As for the reduced schedule, you run what is profitable. Right now, the least profitable days, probably at most hubs, are tuesday/wednesday/saturdays, where very few business fares are being bought-mostly discounted coach fares for people trying to get those maxi-shafter deals. There's nothing wrong with cutting out the red ink if that's where it's at. CO
has scaled back ops at all 3 hubs on those days.
