I have to agree with LambertMan as well, I am not sure if OMA
could support AS
mainline to Seattle...Unless, AS
were to enter another midwest market as well (STL
for example) and run a STL
flight. But, I don't see any real benefit of doing that. QX
2x daily, OMA
seems like a good place to start.
As long as we are talking about west coast routes, the LAX
run is the one that needs to come back. Despite what Midwest said (they were obviously leaving regardless of how the OMA
hub or LAX
route was doing, KC
gave them a sweeter deal), everyone I ever talked to said the LAX
loads were very good. Hell, you figure OMA
has had nonstop LAX
service for what, 25-30 years? That doesn't happen unless the route is profitable.
