Exactly. Dyslexia might contribute to some misspellings of words (which I get), but doesn't prevent you from stopping at the end of a sentence to put a period or using a comma in the midst of a sentence.

I believe WN used A7 and A8. The old terminal was demolished in April 1990 to my understanding. I flew WN DAL-HOU-BNA and back when they were on A. They had like 24 departures back then. Started off with 8 daily departures. 4 to HOU, 4 to MDW. BHM and PHX were added in 87. I’m pretty sure that’s al...Jump to post

Downtown Nashville in the 80s/early 90s was a dump. Lots of prostitution and drug deals on lower broad.

I agree with your comment re: WN. They still have some good growth opportunities at BNA.

I'm slightly surprised to hear that WN's taking all of D. I had always thought that they'd have AA taking it, leaving all of C for WN.
