I understand there would be a small number of O&D passengers, and that most passengers would be connecting, but it seems strange to me that SAT is not linked on a non-stop basis with CLT by US.

I'm also surprised that they (or the entire Star Alliance for that matter) have no service to BTR either. CLT-BTR existed for a very short time prior to 9/11, and I'm absolutely shocked they haven't brought it back... particularly with that airport having (re)gained and sustained flights to four "new" destinations (quite significant for an airport that's long had only service to ATL/DFW/IAH/MEM) years after the storm, putting a serious dent in its erosion of pax to MSY,

US has tried BTRCLT and it failed. Before that, they ran BTRMSY
|Quoting MSYtristar (Reply 5):|
Yep, BTR-MSY (originating in MLU) several times daily with Beech 1900's as part of the US MSY "focus city" if you want to call it that in the 1990's. They usually had around 20 USAir Express flights to regional destinations connecting with US mainline service from MSY to BWI/LGA/CLT/PIT/PHL/DCA.

Now the E190 deliveries may free up a 737/319 that may be able to run this route. AUS is definitely screaming for a 319.
