ATA Connection/Chicago Express To Pull Out Of TOL

Wed Dec 22, 2004 1:59 am

Another city gets the ax from ATA Connection. Looks like TOL couldn't survive the second round or cuts. There was one other city mentioned, but it is unknown if it is MLI, GRR, or FNT. Stay tuned.

Confirmed; per management TOL service ends 1/4/05. I'm jobless.

Merry Christmas,

Hmmm...I guess that keeps American here since their yeilds will increase a ton again. Perhaps FL was looking over the C8 ops area for a reason.

With all these Chicago Express cities losing service, are they expanding in other places, or have planes just sitting around? Also, with the announcement that SWA won over AirTran, is there any news on what will happpen to C8? Possible it will return to some of the cities it left in the dust after ATA becomes more profitable...if it becomes more profitable?

Most aircraft are going to serve the intra-Indiana flights...and the new feed into IND from places like DAY.
