5 years in a row, not bad. Now how high would the chances be that this service goes year-round?

Not very high. Nobody goes to the Greenbrier in the winter. Delta could swap out that CRJ200 for a Jetstream 31 during the winter months and still struggle to reach a 50% load factor.
I'm not joking! This is my job!

US does the same thing. Adds lots of seasonal capacity on ERJs and Dash 8s, then flies a few mostly-empty Beech 1900s during the winter, only supported by EAS.
I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
