I have a feeling that CLE pax growth, along with many other cities in the region, is plateauing, but I hope I’m wrong.
I’m beating a dead horse but I can’t get over the fact that Kennedy has to go before Cleveland city council over this. The money was already approved for the master plan, and furthermore these are elected politicians whose expertise ought to lie with fixing potholes and reducing crime, not running major airports.
I wouldn’t say so. Close to 3% growth through Feb. 2019, which is good for the slow winter months. I’d expect to see somewhere around a 4-5% increase this year because—
-DEN service is now 100% mainline
