Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

New director starts October 1st. He did mention that Manchester’s fees were high for its size. He definitely wants to lower those fees.

The new director mentioned that Manchester’s cost was a little high for its size. Maybe he’ll be able to lower costs some to help get some new service.

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

As mentioned before it would be nice to have a Midwest flight out of the snow belt. How did Southwest do on the PHX route back when they la...
