Well I can see Hooters pulling their flights....It was stupid to take down their flights to just one one-way departure on thursdays with no return until Sunday...
I think that I would have liked to have see then Keep Denver and Atlanta and Myrtle Beach. The New United service with "Barbie Jets" will be no where as comfortable as the 737 Hooters flew to Denver. Now the only thing RFD will have for service are two daily flights to DTW
, two to DEN
and then Allegiant to LAS
United needs to drop a 737 or Airbus into Rockford instead of thise pukey little CRJs. The traffic is there, especially if they would be feeding a airport full of possible connections. If Hooters pulled out of the market RFD-DEN
it was probably because they didnt have any online connections as United will. All their traffic was O&D. Hopefully the CRJs will be a temporary thing and they will put full size jets on the route.
I would also love to see a AIR TRAN come into Rockford. Forget Delta, theyd also use those God forsaken Brabie Jets too. 50 Seats are not enuff and they can easily over book them and cause pasengers all kinds of problems. Actually, I think that if Southwest poped into Rockford thatd be nice. Otherwise, RFD suffers from too close to Chicago and Milwaukee-itis and will never be any kind of secondary over flow airport. It will always be the Red-Headed Stepchild of airports in the area.
