RE: Not-as-well-known West Coast Airlines

Seems like Harbor Air used to fly in Oregon and Washington up until 2000 or so...I believe they served places like Corvallis, Newport, Gig Harbor, and a few other very small airports.

Any Southern Oregon flyers out there? This terminal should be a quantum leap over the current one jetway building!

Anyone know how much longer Air Canada plans to fly the Boeing 747-400? I had read that they may phase them out. . .

The Most Annoying Passenger

That sounds frightful! My most annoying experience is sitting next a very overweight gentleman on an Air Nova BAe 146. I was smashed up agaisnt the window the entire flight. Of course, the flight was full and I could not be moved.

RE: United At MFR

Perhaps when the new expanded terminal is completed in 5 years, passenger traffic will pick up and more capacity will be necessary. Until such a time arrives, Skywest does provide good service on their CRJ.
