Re: Indiana State Aviation Thread - 2019

When American Eagle came back to SBN it had the opposite effect that anyone would have thought. They didn't siphon off traffic from other carriers in fact traffic increased at DL and UA. With reference to DL moving E-jets into FWA, It is probably a little ways off yet as both cities SBN and FWA can...

B6 A320s are IAE-powered, and Allegiant only buys CFM56 ones.

What's more likely, IMO, is an order at Farnborough for last-off-the-line CEOs. The IR ones that Airbus is pitching to G4 are all CFM.
