Internationally, they're very constricted until new gates open up or until the A321XLR joins the fleet for secondary Europe. However, if gates weren't an issue, I could see them switch MAD to year-round? Sort of surprised it's still seasonal. Domestically, more seasonal markets? JAC/EGE? Maybe even...Jump to post
That runway widening project looks rather intriguing. When they shut down the runway for 16 weeks, I'm guessing NK will shift ops temporarily over to PIT? There were plans to convert the taxi way into a temporary runway so the airport could still function. Other airports have done it and plus LBE i...Jump to post
