Re: AS temporarily suspends ops at PDX, RDM, MFR, GEG, EUG, ALW due to wildfires

Seems to me this thread needs an update. According to AS.com, flights at PDX and GEG resumed on Tuesday, the 15th. Partially at least. So I guess there was about a 24-hour cancellation of all flights at PDX? I haven't been able to find out about all the other airports listed but can anyone update u...

While AS has ramped up service at PDX lately, what happened to the ORD flight? It ran for like 2 days, then gone. Haven’t seen it scheduled this week at all. JFK and EWR were supposed to re-start as well. Has AS backtracked on the re-start of any flights trans-continental?
