I was looking through schedules and I noticed that during the Fall, that SBN
get 3 DC9s from NW
on Saturdays and 5 DC9s on Sundays. The loads are looking healthy and can support it. This looks more like a pre 9/11 schedule, but does Notre Dame really pull in that much capacity? I'm really suprised that the 9s are flying in on Saturday and not on Friday before the home games. Too bad SBN
couldn't support these loads year round, those mainline employees would still be around and not outsourced to ATS or Worldwide Flight or what ever lower cost company NW
decided to go with.
