Should the airline offer to serve Cleveland, we should certainly accept, however I don’t think it’s an airline our airport should persue. For year-round business oriented service to work in Cleveland it has to be on a full service carrier to a larger, MAINLAND European hub. CLE should focus efforts on Aer Lingus before it looks to persue other, less enticing carriers — especially new and unstable ones.
Not to be "that guy," but you do realize that Ireland isn't in Mainland Europe?
Ireland is part of mainland Europe. Iceland is the only country that is not considered part of the mainland. http://www.theaa.com/services/european_ ... overed.jsp
Lol what is that source?
Merriam-Webster definition of mainland: "a continent or the main part of a continent as distinguished from an offshore island
or sometimes from a cape or peninsula"https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/mainland
World Atlas: "Continental Europe is a continuous continental landmass that forms the mainland continent of Europe, excluding the surrounding islands. It is simply the continent of Europe, excluding European islands such as the Canary Islands, British Isles, and the Greek Islands"https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/wha ... urope.html
: "The most common definition of continental Europe excludes the Greek Islands, Malta, Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, the Balearic Islands, Iceland, Ireland, and the United Kingdom and its dependencies"https://kids.kiddle.co/Continental_Europe
It's not a big deal, but I thought I should say something since I have seen it referred to as mainland a few times on this thread.
