Just a month ago we were all expressing our opinions on what new and exciting services we could expect in Indiana. What are the weakest links at IND, FWA, SBN and EVV that could get cut once the dust settles from all of this and the airlines are reduced in size? I'm thinking there's a high probabil...

Sure. It's not even 7 days a week year around and it sucked its subsidies down more than a half a year ahead of the funding period.
