It also appears that this route will receive the Transcontinental service standard, which is what I was hoping for as soon as I heard rumors of this route, as it would be pretty long not to have the upgraded meal service and staffing. Only downfall is that the return is a red-eye, with "lights-out" service in the FC cabin and beverages and pretzels in back.
Reno must being doing well. I noticed UA was also operating a 757 on one of the morning flights. Good size plane for a short hop. Also, rumor was that the CRJ's would be replaced with CR7's once more were provided from Skywest.

That's awesome. I'm sure RNO will enjoy that!! I'm glad they brought back the TUS flight as well...it did very well this past year. It was daily during the Xmas season...wonder if they will do that again.
Glad to see the addition of RNO and the return of TUS. Lets hope we see daily TUS again for the Christmas travel period. It would be able to take a N/S to EWR instead of having that dreaded connection in IAH.
