Re: OAG Changes 9/23/2018:AA Adds PHL-SRQ; DL Drops CVG-MKE; Many F9 Changes

Of course the 3M drops are old news , but I still shake my head at them. I thought there was considerable promise, esp if they could get the UA code share on those routes, but alas, so many of their plans don't seem to come to fruition. I did question an October start for BKG, although I understood ...

Re: Sun Country 2019 Expansion Ideas?

Not an expansion idea, but a little know fact is that Sun Country has had and still maintains interline agreement with Emirates and when pulling MPS-DXB flights on Emirates.com, SY is offered on connection thru BOS or JFK . I assume with their new model , that will eventually go away.
