AWE can afford to expand?

Oh wait, they are closing CMH, so I guess those spare planes gotta go somewhere.

So closing CMH is that the solution now to AWE's probs?

The Express planes based in Columbus are ERJs owned by Chautauqua - those should get transferred to the DL Express operation that is contracted to Chautauqua.

The flights to BIL and MFR will be operated by Mesa CRJs.
