Re: Cleveland Aviation Thread - 2019

Actually Southwest added CLE-MKE twice-daily while UA* was stil operating it with CRJ's twice daily. And it was added during the tight-fleet period in later 2017 when Southwest was adding virtually no new flying anyplace. And then to the surprise of many United did not quickly cancel the CRJ's as s...

I don’t forsee this route being cut. It performs rather well considering its running 2x daily. Southwest also has a monopoly on the route — they’d be stupid to get rid of it. Quite a few corporate connections between the two cities, especially Eaton, Rockwell Automation, and Johnson Controls. Proba...
