Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

Found this over at Flyertalk, but AA is apparently now the #1 airline in CVG (as measured by number of flights - 20 per day compared to Delta's 16).

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

I am back to booking some personal trips for late this year through the end of the schedule. Airfares are incredibly cheap right now. Even better, DAY is now often cheaper than CMH or CVG for the flights I am looking at (to Reno NV, for example). Its been a long time since that was the case (althoug...

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

I'm surprised that DAY is still open at all. You'd think that airlines would be pushing passengers to use larger airports at this point for efficiency. I doubt the CARES Act would allow for it, given DAY is the only commercial airport in SW Ohio. Also its the home of the only Ohio based airline. Wi...

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

You'll have to get in your car for DCA because AA is ending service to CVG and many, many other cities in a few weeks. CMH, CLE too for instance. United continuing Dulles but they have been cancelling many flights, it's spotty. Thanks. The May 1 AA flight is still there but cancelled thereafter -- ...

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

Looks like hub only flying from CVG on Delta for the entire month of May, with the exception of a scheduled flight to LGA.

AA will be the only service to DCA from CVG.

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2020

DL's CVG schedule for Monday, April 13th: 4x CVG-ATL 3x CVG-DTW 3x CVG-MSP 1x CVG-SLC That's it. I have no words. Wow. This could be devastating for CVG. I would not be surprised if its mostly hub only flying from this point on -- at least that is the speculation for CVG given Delta's plans to emer...

Re: Delta plans to emerge a "smaller" carrier

Delta's most recent cuts have absolutely decimated CVG. If DL emerges as a smaller carrier and doesn't bring back these flights, one wonders about the overall viability of the CVG airport. Just too much in lost gate fees if it is relegated to a spoke in Delta's network.

Re: Second Tier Airports

Re: NW vs UA Who was stronger in TPAC network?

While the original question limits the dates to the 90s-2000s, Northwest was, at one point, a dominant US-Asia carrier (perhaps second to Pan-Am at some points) and branded itself Northwest Orient Airlines. Aside from Guam, I don't believe United had a major presence in Asia until it acquired the Pa...

Yes funnel all Ohio traffic into three inadequate airports , with one airport being in Kentucky. I could understand if you were talking ORD, ATL,LAX, or JFK. But we are talking CLE, CMH, and CVG, three mid- size airports that go up and down themselves. CAK and DAY serve important areas of their own...

Re: AA300 JFK-LAX Hits object on takeoff!

What does the width of the runway have to do with whether the wing would have dug into the ground or not? Narrow or wide, the plane was airborne enough that the wing didn’t touch the ground, but rather a sign with some height off the ground. Are you saying the plane wouldn’t have gotten as high wit...

Re: One-off Delta Routes from DCA

At least a couple of those are non-transferable, route-specific slots. LEX was originally an Air21 award to OH. If I am not mistaken, some if not all of those identified routes were left in place to gain DOT approval of the "great LGA/DCA route swap" between US Airways and Delta back in 2...

Rumors that AA is looking to add even more service to its LAX hub, particularly from the mid-west. Would love to see DAY-LAX service resumed (formerly on PI). Also heard that CMH-LAX might get an additional flight.
