MSN-SFO is surprising indeed but I think it has the potential to do well. Epic Software continues to grow at an unbelievable pace and the airport has seemed to support the UA mainline upgrades to DEN and ORD (I suppose DEN would take a hit from this route). Definitely exciting news for us Madisonians!
