We have supported our airlines. When Big UA
was in here up until last year Jan. Almost every flight was packed. Now that its all RJ
's in and out to chicago (nwa runs 1 or 2 flights to MSP
with DC9 equip) there still packed. I would like to see where you got your infomation from regarding this. I have lived here for 17 yrs. and do fly frequently. I not upset, just curious as to you source of info.
, and MLI were too close together to serve all three"
So why not just serve 1 or 2? CID
is 2:45mins east of DSM
. MLI is 1:45 east of CID
, ok MLI is to close, but CID
? You could do both easily to MDW
and not lose anything. Even if you did what Midex express did 2 yrs. ago, Milwaukee to CID
-MLI and then back, except it would be MDW
Point is, if you have a strong market base, then why move and drop one or more locations just to chase a buck that might not be there?!
Besides ATA had a market here that WN
hasn't even touched. There is money to be made here in Iowa.
Its a gamble, no doubt about that, but this still doesn't make any sense.
