For me this is one of those "I wish" moments. I won't believe it until it actually comes to fruition. The news article says this has been talked about for a decade, but actually it has been talked about for well over a decade. The last version I remember was the city manager and the chair of the airport commission were teaming up to talk to UA
, and I think US.
This business group does make a few good points. SFO
is one of the worst delay-prone airports in the nation. So why take the chance of booking a flight from CIC
that connects through SFO
? Obviously enough people do it or OO
would have discontinued the service a long time ago. Why not just drive to SMF
The flip side to driving to SMF
is that the highway isn't all that great. It is two lanes for the better part of the drive, and it goes through a lot of small towns reducing the speed limit.
That being said QX
recently discontinued service to RDD
. So why would they want to give CIC
a try? G4
also gave RDD
a shot and discontinued the service although granted that was to LAS
If they do manage to land the service I just hope the airline doesn't pull a MQ
and use times that just don't present any additional opportunities to the travelling public. I hope for the best, but I'm not holding my breath.
