The reason I say that is are there not other passengers that are traveling to other cities on that plane that are not counted because they don't terminate at MKE or OMA. I think that is not fair to MKE and OMA.
was still around, yes there were surely passengers making connections. But now there really isn't an airline in MKE
that has connecting traffic, so the flight would have to survive on just those 56ppl/day. Which isn't even enough to justify a CRJ as you have to remember not all of those 56 people will take the nonstop, some will take the onestop through ORD
, or even MSP
Southwest is the only airline that would even come close to being able to offer this flight as they have a fair number of flights on either end, but that is the downside there as well. Why would anyone need to take a one or maybe even two stop through MKE
when they can take a nonstop or a onestop out of MKE
Realistically unless someone revives YX
or someone starts an airline out of OMA
, there isn't going to be much business sense for MKE
until that pax/day number gets above 100 or even 120. Look at MSN
that route has 100ppl/day and no flights. Maybe if that number comes up some DL
will throw a 50 seater on it but it is unlikely.
One mile of highway gets you one mile, one mile of runway gets you anywhere.
