Indiana National Lakeshore a Possible National Park. What Does This Mean for GYY?

http://fox59.com/2017/10/05/indiana-lakeshore-closer-to-becoming-national-park/ We all know GYY is negotiating with G4 and other airlines to truly create them Chicago's third airport. If this national park plan goes through how could GYY gain further air service out of this, and how could Allegiant ...

I'm sure the flight will get the proper advertising once it starts tomorrow. The airport and media need to get on it.

Give it a month or two, and i'm sure that flight will fill up. The second UA flight runs the same times as VX.

Quick question to you guys in here. So I notice that WN is using the -800 on the EWR route quite often. Can someone find the load percentages on that route, and see if it is truly doing better than LGA was? I'm assuming it's doing a lot better if they're using the -800 on the route.
