With the MAX situation, this may just be the beginning. Will MSY benefit from this? Obviously there will be more Airbus ppl flying into Mobile and the need for smaller critical and expensive components that require air delivery.
I just don't see MOB ramping up requiring a connection somewhere, when MSY has nonstop service just about everywhere domestically. Would be a great time to start service to CDG, non?
I don't see how. Business types are not going to drive 2+ hours to MSY just to get a flight to the mothership. They'll just connect in Atlanta like everybody else. Maybe they'll upgauge some of the current CRJ routes for 'em.
