Surprise! New RNO Service

Fri Nov 17, 2006 1:01 am

Management here at RNO are holding a news conference in half an hour (0830 PST) to announce a "major" air service addition. Could it be WN non-stop to BWI? Something from Jetblue? A second ATL flight from DL? I know the suspense is killing you so I will post the news in awhile.

News flash! The backdrop for the news conference, visible on our CCTV's here in communications, has the WN logo. Please bear with the suspense just a bit longer...

WN just , a few hours ago, extended the time fram for reservations until early May, 2007 up from March, 2007 so anything is possible now. Interesting. Though I would think that other markets would come nonstop to BWI before RNO but, in this day, anything is possible.

It's SAN. Unknown frequency. Rumor has it the equipment will be 737's heehee.

Kinda disappointed. Was hoping for BWI.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

RNO-SAN:
8:25a 9:40a WN 912 X7 non-stop
6:00p 7:15p WN 383 non-stop

SAN-RNO:
9:35a 11:10a WN 680 non-stop
6:55p 8:30p WN 377 non-stop


Odd that it is only 1hr15min from RNO-SAN but 1hr35min on the northbound.

I didn't see the other conversation before posting. So, at the time I was thinking of Western Express.
