"Your chances of seeing Eagle at CRW
are pretty slim. CRW
likely won't happen. You have many larger markets in the East coast that AA
/Eagle do not operate to and would be ahead of the list before CRW
focuses primarily on strong business markets out of ORD
and really does not have a lot additional space in ORD
to spend on what I would call a third-tier market like CRW
. United is stronger in ORD
and flies to many smaller markets, this is part since it can leverage its stronger presence in the East due to the IAD
hub and be the airline of choice for people at CRW
who are both east and westbound. AA
doesn't fly to places like LAN, FNT, CHS
, etc. Several of these I would expect to see before CRW
. Plus Eagle isn't too keen on opening new stations. Only DL
Connection and NW
Airlink appear to be adding destinations while United and AA
are more or less operating on status quo in the domestic United States. "
Thanks for jumping on me even though everytime someone ELSE said sonething about ORD
i argued that UA
already had the market. Way 2 read all of the thread.
"You propose interesting questions, but unfortunetly the airline world does not revolve around CRW
. While you may feel it is most important, in the grand scheme of the national air transportation network, and it most airline's eyes it is not, due to its size. Neither you or I are privy to the tools that route planners use to determine new routes and markets. Population size is only one aspect, along with economic factors, business support, and the overall demand for air service. While CRW
may be up 15% from last year, look into why there was an increase. Was it because travel was supressed due to the rebound from 9/11, war in Iraq, etc. Was it because airlines unnecessairly reduced capacity and have added it back? Or is it because the area has grown? More likely its a combination of the 3 reasons"
I understand all of that also. What about the fact that CRW
is advertising all over the state, the fares have lowered, and they are getting back the passengers that used to drive to CMH
You dont live here so i didnt expect you to know that.
is now flying more FRJ's out of CVG
operated by ACA
since they were pulled out of BOS
and East coast flying as resources where shifted around. More 50 seat flying by Comair is happening there to consolidate the FRJ's at CVG
, which in the end should help to increase reliabilty and reduce flight delays. Capacity can be better matched with demand at CVG
by having the option of an aircraft smaller than the 50 seat CRJ's. Again in SCE, they pulled all 3 CRJ's and replaced them with smaller FRJ's."
Thank you, cus i didnt know that. And im not being sarcastic, i really didnt know.
And the topic was mainly about NYC, someone else brought up ORD
and i vetoed that.
And i dont think that the airline world revloves around CRW
. Im simply trying to gather information. If i asked this about RDU
no one would have said that, because it is larger and popular. Please, im just trying to get information. I heard that flight attendants and pilots are on this site, so i asked them some questions. Please give me a break.
