For SkyWest it's 8 on Sunday and 4 per day, not 7 per day. Eagle is already supplementing SAABs with RJ
's from SAN
when loads demand it. Gate to gate in an RJ is 42 Minutes.
What I will say is this. All previous studies in San Diego were flawed. It's not just a committee working on it either. Miramar is on the BRAC list in 2005, as is North Island and MCRD. East Miramar is only a backup. At least one site will become available for development by 2010, and that site will be known before the vote in 2006, with the new facility opening in 2018-2020.
First of all, staff, not the public working group, added East Miramar. Of course the Marines say it's got environmental issues. The higher-ranking love to move to San Diego, get their COLA, buy a house and retire rich. For Miramar to stay off the BRAC, they (base staff) have to justify why it should not be closed. This is a recent change in the BRAC closure process.
San Diego will reach its MAP peak in 2018. At that point, supply will be diminished and airfares will go through the roof. The only solution then will be to kick GA
out of San Diego International Airport (Lindbergh has been dropped from the airport name) and accomplish a build out on the north side. There will be a solution, and it will not be to keep "SAN" as is. That solution will be on the ballot in November of 2006.
The new airport Authority (no longer the Port District) also has the right of Eminent Domain. Any new facility will result in the closure, demolition and redevelopment of SAN.
That's all I can say on the matter
