My boss asked me to help him find an itinerary with one-stop from MTY to SDQ next Tuesday, March 2, and I'm shocked that I can't find one. It seems they share the same U.S. airlines, but the wrong connecting city:
CO: MTY-IAH, but only EWR-SDQ
AA: MTY-DFW, but only MIA-SDQ
DL: MTY-ATL, but only JFK-SDQ
And then I checked the other regional majors, only to discover that:
Neither AM nor MX serve SDQ, while serving MTY; and
Neither CM, LR, AV, TA or even CU serve MTY, while serving SDQ.
How is this possible? Am I missing something? Are there any similar-sized regional city-pairs like these that can't be reached in one stop?
(edit: DL does fly ATL-SDQ, but not on Tuesdays, and even on the days when they do fly, it would mis-connect with the in-bound MTY flight)
