I grew up in Fort Wayne, IN, and have often flown from FWA since 1995.
I have a question about whether First Class has ever been offered on flights to/from FWA historically (especially when there was mainline service). I remember when FWA was served by 727s, 737s, DC-9s, and MD-80/90 family aircraft. Did these flights have premium seating then?
Now that FWA is served totally by US legacy regional carriers (AA Eagle, UA Express, DL Connection, etc), there are no premium class seats available on flights to/from FWA (since the equipment is all CRJs and ERJs, and used to be turboprops). Consequently ALL flights to/from FWA are all-economy.
Will there ever be a return of premium seating to FWA flights? For example, if the larger E-Jets and CRJ700/900 ever come to Fort Wayne, could there be a return of F or C class seating to FWA flights?
