Any time frame we can expect service to begin on the CLE-TVC route? Obviously after the new terminal is open this fall, but, will they jump right in or will they wait until next summer?
No clue, man. Heard XJT was in talks, and that's all, with TVC and GRB
. Don't know if TVC will be seasonal or year-round, either. Sorry.
Also, is Concourse D strictly for the RJs, with no possibility of mainline flights using it?
D is strictly for COEX right now. There was talk about 18 months ago that, with the start-up of the construction on the apron of Concourse C, that D-1 and D-31 would spring into being, with jetways, that could accomodate 737's, but I've not heard a word about that since.
I would guess it could be put between C and taxiway Juliet,
There was an article in the Plain Dealer a few years back, that showed a drawing of a D-like Concourse being built due west of gates C-16/18. In the plan, those gates would be removed, another underground walkway built to a D-like (but smaller I think) Concourse E. It's not needed at the moment, obviously.
