There will be no local market at all and Southwest doesn’t even have a truly banked hub. This will lose tons of money based on any industry typical modern measure o...

COU-CLT Awsome news! should be enough demand for at least double daily. Easy connections to Florida and the SEC schools. Only problem might be a crowded terminal for an early morning departure. A new terminal is at least 2 years away

Why couldn’t DEN add more trains and increase frequency? I’ve been on the Atlanta train before and you need board quickly. The doors don’t stay open that long and that’s not a bad thing

The train system can't handle a Concourse D. How so? They could expand capacity if need be. The train pretty much runs at capacity through the heavy banks.

AA md80s

I know it’s been discussed before, but here goes. The major carriers thus far have been reporting record loads and revenue. Would it not make sense to keep flying some of the md80s while AA has 24 max 8s parked?
Nothing long term, but better than canceling 100+ flights a day.
