Re: Alaska Airlines adds SEA-CMH (from March 1, 2019)

Decent connections are possible to/from CMH if originating from PDX, SFO, LAX, ANC and others. It won't be only P2P on this route. Any 'subsidy' is likely a marketing budget in Columbus to herald the new route...pretty standard offering from the new airport/community on an unserved market. There ar...
