The question is whether the yields will be there. Amazon employees fly economy - cheapest options possible. Microsof...

Re: Why are there no regularly scheduled Texas-East Coast redeyes?

Back in the mid-2000s, CO used to operate a brutal redeye (if you can call it that) on DEN-IAH. CO3081 left DEN at 0210 and arrived in IAH at 0524 - on an ERJ.
