Sounds like things are going well up there. Has anyone heard anything else about possible further expansion?

Great news for FL. Sounds like a warm welcome for lower fares. How has DL reacted to this, does anyone know?

Perhaps some of the GPT capacity will be moved to RIC, while the casinos are rebuilt.

I wonder if any of these passengers are at the expense of the Newport News flights.

I just flew RIC - ATL round trip on AirTran. The first flight was nearly full, and the return flight was completely full. I noticed that one of Delta's RIC - ATL roundtrips was canceled that day. Some of the passengers on my flight might have been rebooked from the Delta flight. I'm glad to see them doing well.
