Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

Quite an exciting OAG thread day for the airports on this forum. I’ll let someone else who is more familiar summarize the many changes at CVG and a few at CAK and DAY. At CMH: AA September (back to almost normal): LGA returns (appears to be mostly Envoy 140s with a few Republic 175s in the mix?) PH...

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

Per this week's OAG thread:

CMH:
-AS remains daily through August.
-DL's JFK (2x) and LAX (less-than-daily) return in Sept.

DAY:
-MSP returns in Sept (3x).

CVG:
-DL brings back some of its spokes (DFW, BDL, DCA).

DAB is going back up to 7 daily flights- I think the split is 4 DL/3 AA.

Also, a News-Journal article indicated one of AA's flight is going back to a plane with "57 more seats", which I'm taking to mean an upgauge from a CR9 to 319.
