Re: AA add new seasonal routes from PHX

SDF is n the same boat, we have PHX non-stop on WN but no AA. AA just added SDF - LAX, seems good but probably misses a lot of connection opportunities.

Re: Hey DELTA! Why No SLC-GRR?

While there are some great markets here for SLC (PIT, CMH, etc.) there is a new station manager at SDF who is trying to get SLC service for us as well. It seems when the MD-88 retires that Delta would have to upsize aircraft to Atlanta as the C-Series is smaller or to create other options for connec...

Re: Delta Air Lines orders 30 additional A321s

With the MD-88 fleet being retired it will be interesting to see what cities like SDF (my home) get for service. We get mostly MD-88 from ATL today and sometimes 737-700, 737-800, MD-90, A320 and A319. We've never seen the 752 or A321 in regular service may just be too big.

Fun days ahead.

Re: UPS crash at Charleston, WV

Still looking for the most updated details, does not appear to be a UPS jet but a carrier that may be flying cargo for UPS. Checking flights from our hub at SDF shows a Shorts flying the SDF-CRW route.

It appears to be an AIr Cargo Carriers flight that arrived at 6:55AM and went off of the runway.

SDF - PHX possible on AA

WN already serves this market and when US had their hub there I thought it was an underserved potential market and connection point.

Does anybody know if AA will try to link up other markets like SDF to PHX?
