Fair, but I’m also not 100 percent sure the CR2 can do DEN-MRY without restrictions year-round, especially if they need an alternate going west.
Aren’t there numerous alternates in the area? SJC, SBP, SXM come to mind.
I think that SJC is the natural alternative in that there are tons of options on apparently better aircraft - I’m happy on anything that can leave the ground. SBP just seems a bit far and at that point, you might as well just head to SFO. Mind you, I grew up in San Luis Obispo and I love the airport there so it’d be fun either way. SMX had service to LA on Mokulele but I think that’s gone and it left little in the way of connection opportunities. I may be wrong, however, but I’m relatively sure there is now only Allegiant to LAS a few days per week.
I was referring to landing alternates for MRY that the crew files in their flight plan. That what the post I responded to meant also.
I was not talking about alternative airports that passengers can choose to fly out of.
