Where are you seeing that? I'm only seeing twice daily for March and April.

I stand corrected...

First flight departs ILM at 0717, 2nd at 1531.

EWN is 2hr from PGV... Time will only tell but the reason why DL pulled out from EWN is because they are pulling the 50 seat CR2's. They couldn't fill the seats on a CR9 like OAJ, ILM, MYR, AVL, and etc can and are. I know here in ILM, we're getting 5 CR9 a day. OAJ 3 CR9.
