Re: CVG New Airlines/routes?

If Frontier can operate CVG-MSY with an A320 then DL should be embarrassed that they can't operate it with a CR9. That is not the type of business that DL is trying to capture at CVG anyways, they have basically handed over markets/traffic of that nature at CVG to the F9/G4 of the world. If the pre...

Re: CVG New Airlines/routes?

I think DL will eventually add CVG-MSY/PIT/BNA/JAX/SAN/ORF back. One they get their hands on some more smaller mainline jets, some more CRJ-700/900s should open up and be able to operate these routes. CVG-CLE would be an interesting one, but I'm not sure that one will happen, but if it did, it woul...
