I put very little stock in this quote but I am going to pass it along anyway.

Chinese carriers will ...Jump to post
Absolutely, I see no reason for BNA. If we are going to keep Cape Air in MWA, I think it needs to be six daily to STL. Either have frequency to STL, or Jet Service to Chicago. Why split your frequency between STL and BNA, and make it harder to get to/from Southern Illinois? It could go either way, ...Jump to post
STL/BNA makes zero sense IMHO. I get the need for ORD, but you are correct, STL/ORD on 9K would be a done deal. They have the planes to make it work! Does anyone know how fast these new P2012's are going to come into the fleet? I Absolutely, I see no reason for BNA. If we are going to keep Cape Air...Jump to post
Cape Air officially recommended for Quincy. I can’t see any reason DOT doesn’t approve them seeing they are the cheapest option.

I’m willing to bet half their problem is the fact their website doesn’t have a NYC search option to bring up results from both airports. Savvy travelers would know to search both separately but the majority wouldn’t. They have essentially blocked a majority of New Yorkers from even finding a flight...Jump to post
EWR is also a disaster for flow control. Any airplane that touches the airport after 3pm might as well be assumed to be 2 hours or more late for the rest of the day. That certainly hurts profitability. Not only is EWR marginally profitable, it is forcing delays and cancellations into the network My...Jump to post
I think DL will soon be the number 2 carrier at STL. They fly 6x daily ERJ175's on this route and are going after the business traveler that demands frequencies. DL maintains their frequencies on all of their routes in STL with little change. AA is constantly whittling away at flights. AA is curren...Jump to post
That's a St. Louis attitude… "It's not going to be successful, so why try?" I mean, that's the only way you're going to get an airline in the door, here. What does it hurt to try?

Down to just a E175 and a A319. Far cry from the 3x757 AA would ply the route with daily back in the day.

How many more flights? 2019 service started on the 24th of May so I believe it totaled 5 flights for that month.

Sarasota and Savannah probably are the most likely IMO. The expansion is putting in customs so after that maybe CUN (assuming G4 makes that one of their destinations).
