Word on the street is that BNA will be one of the launch cities for WN’s new MIA service. We’ll see. I honestly wouldn’t rule PSP out. Seasonally at least. Pre-COVID obviously, but the expectation was that DL was going to start this route as part of their 2nd round of adds at MIA to support their L...

Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2020

Speaking of BNA airline clubs, anyone know how the DL expansion is going?

I assume it is still underway since I haven’t seen otherwise. Do they have a temporary SC somewhere in B while it’s being expanded or is a portion of the club still operable?

AA announced they’ll be cutting 19,000 jobs in October and running at 50% normal capacity. They won’t be growing at BNA anytime soon, nor will any airline save for possibly WN.
