Thanx PDAflyboy. The AS SFO-CUN announcement had been posted, but not the LAX-LAP. To me, it seems like the LAX-LAP run would be a perfect fit for Horizon"s CRJs.

Juventus: Yeah, but QX CR7's are not easy to come by. Also, they seem to be routing them away from LAX. In addition, the LAP flight will also be tagged on to a new domestic destination that will be well utilized with a 734. This flight will operate to LTO on the other days it doesn't go to LAP.

The SFO-CUN service should do really well from what I hear both within the airline and outside the airline. This route could easily end up year round in my opinion.

Unfortunatly I can not disclose that info. But looks very good for LAX-SFO to get a morning departure also on the winter schedule, meaning SFO-LAX will get an evening departure.

Also, the gate situation at LAX will be very interesting.

Hey AS739X...any update on T3 & T5 past rumblings? Anything new on the refurbishment of T3 by LAX?

Thank you for your great insight and information you provide all of us.

AS739X,
From what I understand, AS will begin using the remote for some RON terminator / originators starting some time this fall.
