Re: Cleveland Aviation Thread - 2020

I can't tell who owns the IX center?? Privately owned, no? Or is it city owned and privately managed? To my naked, untrained eye, a google earth view suggests plenty of room for a new terminal at the IX Center sight.

Re: Cleveland Aviation Thread - 2020

Speculation: Will JetBlue take over AA's JFK/LGA-CLE routes? When AA closes 50-seat bases at LGA and JFK, will they turn the flying and the slots over to their new partner JetBlue? Or will AA fly it themselves with E175/CR7 equipment? Or will they just let the CLE routes become a DL monopoly?
