Did YX Ever Fly To HOU?

Tue Jan 30, 2007 3:41 am

Did YX ever fly to HOU ? If so when ? If not , will there ever be a service ? Living in Indiana, and frequently traveling to houston, and IND-HOU ( not direct) would be nice. I here YX is very comfortable. I know CO has the IND - IAH , but living on the southside , HOU is much more convenient, even if a stop is required.

I have wondered why WN does not fly IND-HOU. With Houston being such a big city, it seems strange that WN has neglected to connect many cities in the Midwest and Northeast with it (ex: IND, ISP, PVD, BUF, PIT, PHL?).

YX use to fly to HOU, but they pulled out citing the hurricanes--I cite poor marketing and weak market.

...and in the West (e.g., SAN, ONT, SJC, SMF, TUS, RNO, SLC, PDX.)

I was suprised about WN not flying to HOU direct from IND either. I dont know how the market would be though. CO Usually Fills the ERJ to IAH , at least from what I have seen. I dont think that there is a niche for a 737 on the route, although CO flies 2 X a day on the IND - IAH with one. Yet again, i hardly think its half full

Midwest served Houston (HOU) from Milwaukee May 27-November 30, 2005. There were two daily flights. The quick withdrawal was due to hurricane aftermath.

It actually was even shorter....it started July 10th. May 27th was the date this paper reported Midwest was coming to Houston.

I'd like to see them come back with CRJ, but we'll see.
