Re: DOT Grants tentative Approval to 15 US Airlines to Drop service to 75 airports

Not shocked at all by DL and FSM...I had been expecting that cut in every weekly schedule update thread from Enilria. XNA only has 1x daily to ATL. There's no way that FSM needs the same frequency (albeit a CR9 versus CR2). Prior to the current situation FSM was only 2x to ATL on CR2s. They tried a...
