Meanwhile, FL has yet to announce whether they are ever going to start CUN service that they got the rights to operate.....

DL also offers daily service to CUN from their SLC hub. These flights are always loaded as well.

For the immediate future, we are taking a rain check to CAN.
I and many of my fellow crewmembers are not crying over this fact. We are doing just fine with all of our other destinations. I trust our corporate brass to make the most advantageous decision that benefits our company the most.  bigthumbsup

USA3000 just notified the govt. that they do not intend to use their BUF or MKE-CUN rights. Cancun may have a harder time than people thought winning their pre-hurricane business back.

ATL - CUN

I heard that their application gave them 1 year from approval to start service.
(Look for FL to start service in December.)

I just read that USA3000 had informed the USDOT that have no intention on serving BUF & MKE-CUN. I think they would have done fine 1 or 2X weekly during the peak season.

BUF - MKE????

We finished a two month charter program there this winter (yes winter) and the loads sucked. The service to CUN is definitely going to increase, but the amount will be determined by slots and not how many planes are laying around and how much expansion into the high yield international arena the US Legacys want to get into. The airport is allready close to capacity during certain periods of the day.

Awwwww.......That sucks. I thought USA3000 was doing well to CUN from here in MKE. Anyone know what other routes USA3000 flies from MKE? I know for sure RSW and PUJ, but are there any others?
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.
