I lived in Bridgeport and am in the process of moving to New Britain, CT
(outside Hartford)....I used HVN to return home to MI
to see family over Thanksgiving, and I also stopped in there twice to redeem "Delta Dollars" for tickets. The CSR's there when i visited the first time in August told me the flights were doing well and they often go oversold. During the busy season they sometimes even swapped out the 40-seat CRJ for a 50-seat version. The ComAir people there told me that many of the customers are requesting that they consider serving ATL
from HVN.... and with the ATL
expansion perhaps they will consider it in the future. The service is marketed well around the Yale campus - they have billboards, but i have seen little marketing for it outside New Haven in areas that the airport really should be drawing from (like Bridgeport and Stratford. The drive to HVN is shorter than LGA
for people in Norwalk too- no doubt HVN could support more service if it marketed itself better. DH
was supposedly looking at it also, i'm sure that fell by the wayside though.
