I don't see FWA happening. Just way too close.
|Quoting BravoGolf (Reply 4):|
These flights are not going to be used by the leisure traveler, but by the business traveler that has a meeting in Indianapolis and doesn't want to spend 4+ hours driving.
|Quoting FWAERJ (Reply 3):|
I watched the local news here a while back, and an official from FWA said that they were not interested in Cape Air to IND. I agree... what's the point when Indianapolis is a 2 hour drive down I-69?
|Quoting BravoGolf (Reply 9):|
You should try it in the winter with the snow blowing across the cornfields not to mention the increase in trucks!
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 8):|
Replace the 69 in that statement with 65, and you might argue the same is true in GYY. While getting out of Chicago is terrible, the drive from Gary to Indy typically isn't that bad.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 10):|
I'll give you that 65 has more trucks than 69, but there's no weather difference between the two drives...
|Quoting Tornado82 (Reply 11):|
The drive GYY-IND is alot longer than FWA-IND (the center city of IND that is) both miles and time wise.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 13):
But considering IND is west of downtown Indianapolis, it's actually only about 10 miles different from the respective downtowns to IND. Bear in mind that much of the population GYY serves is closer to IND than is downtown Gary.

Gary proper excluded and Lake County is a very prosperous area, and Porter County is second to only Hamilton County for median income in Indiana. Allen County not so much.
