Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2021

According to today’s OAG thread, DL has permanently cut CMH-LAX from the schedule. AA had previously done the same. CMH is now officially without a single nonstop flight to the second largest city in the United States. This comes only a couple of years after the route was 3x daily mainline on 2 air...

Re: Trump's Parked 757 N757AF

I don’t think the plane is used anymore, but not 100% sure. Information about Weststar can be very spotty. When Weststar got don...
