Yes, UA launched IAD-MYR shortly after NK got the slots at DCA.
Speaking of which, since Nk is giving them back, will the DOT hold another "competition" for the slots, or would they be rewarded to the airline that came in second the last time around (which was Comair IIRC)?

I wonder if MYR will remain on the NK route map at all over the next few months...

They will be up to grabs for anyone who applies. Comair will have to re-submit their application.

It is in the ACY and LGA sked thru the whole winter, although 5 days a week out of ACY....

I would love to see it go PVD-ACY-MYR... especially in the winter... last year was the first year ACY ran it year round, and the winter loads were not that great.

MAH-Was MYR one of the large-hub, medium-hub, small-hub, or non-hub slot exemptions? I totally forget.

That might help, specially if it didn't disturb the schedule too much. just add a hop up to PVD or something

Is Spirit dropping all service to DCA or just the flights between DCA and Myrtle Beach? I know they also fly to Detroit and Ft. Lauderdale from DCA...anyone know???

Just MYR. They are not dropping FLL/DTW service.
