Not sure if anyone has noticed yet, but all cities that CommutAir flies to from CLE
will be slashed to only 2 daily flights each. Have loads been extremely week system wide or is there anothe reason? I know in TOL
they have struggled to fill even half of the 19 seaters. It seems people just don't want to fly to CLE
to connect when they have a choice of 9 daily jets to CVG
or multiple jet flights to other cities.
Personally I've always worried about the success of such service. I've felt Commutair would be better off running a similar operation to the Northeast network providing routes such as CAK/TOL
and other commuter routes that would be attractive to business people. As far as Continental service goes, they would probably be better off working out a couple jet flights to the EWR
hub providing the only New York area service any of these cities would have.
