Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2021

Well, let's ask a few CMH questions for 2021 to get the conversation started: 1. How does CMH bounce back? 2. What routes do we think/know will be coming back? 3. What new routes? 4. What's next for NK? AS? 5. Anyone new coming? 1) I think travel will rebound once there's confidence in the vaccines...

Re: The Rest of Ohio - 2021

I anticipate JetBlue will either enter CMH or CVG this year. I think CMH is more likely, but CVG is possible too. If they enter CMH, I anticipate they will add JFK/BOS/EWR/FLL. I think LAX is also possible if AA drops this route. But I think it's more like they start off with their Northeastern foc...
