"Mesa- CRJ, arrives at 3:30 a.m. and departs at 5:00 a.m."
Iowaman, when did this flight ever leave DSM
at 5 AM
? The one time that I saw it on the boards at DSM
was earlier this month and the flight left at 9:35 PM
(two hours late the night that I flew in). I have been trying to find it listed somewhere online, but no one has it anymore. The arrival time is correct, but the aircraft stays until morning when it leaves for Phoenix. The return flight to Las Vegas is done in the evening on a flight that arrives in DSM
from Phoenix. This is the general trend that HP
does with many of its flights from LAS
(arrive in LAS
really late and leave "really" early).
Also, as a side note, this is the third time that HP
has cut the DSM
service. They operated it a long time ago (like 13-14 years ago) with a 737, then tried it when Mesa operated the F70s, and again recently with the CRJ.
