Effective Nov 30th, DL will discontinue its ASA CRJ service to HKY due primarily to poor loads. LF's had hovered most of the time in the 40's...way too low to sustain CRJ's.
|Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 1):|
I would suggest for them to move the flights to EWN (Craven County Regional Airport, New Bern NC) and do a 2x daily (1x Sat) service to ATL, and a 1x Sun-Fri service to JFK.
|Quoting HAJFlyer (Reply 2):|
US Airways Express already serves two destinations from EWN: CLT and PHL.
I seriously doubt that the New Bern area generates enough traffic to sustain US and DL especially during the winter month. The population of new Bern itself is only about 23 thousand and that of the greater NB area only about 80 thousand.
|Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 7):|
So enplanements have already begun to rise.. and so it does seem that additional service could be generated for a 2x daily to ATL.
