STANDBY, there might be more cities added to that list. US is once again contemplating parking MORE mainline aircraft....Look for a press release forthcoming.

I heard from a skycap here at MSY who works for Express that they are adding BTR-MSY Beech 1900 flights in a month or so, to connect to mainline.

 Sad

Stephen - Didn't USAir Express once have a pretty good sized operation out of New Orleans?

FlyingTexan, they sure did, as of only 4 years ago or so, they had around 25 weekday nonstops to BTR, BPT, LIT, JAN, PNS, SHV..even VPS for awhile. Now, they have four flights a day to LIT and SHV. All Beech 1900's.
They flew EMB-120's for awhile to LIT and PNS when Continental Express entered those markets in 1994.
