Not really sure how that is going to work when they are going off a subsidy for the EAS bid and that is going off the assumption that it would only be one airline, not two, competing for customers.
In theory I guess it could be for cape air to add a destination but that wasn’t how I took it.

This is kind of an interesting situation. Remind me, did Marion prefer the SkyWest bid over Cape Air when this was up the last time?
It almost seems to undermine the EAS situation if this does go through. I imagine some traffic would be stimulated with an ORD connection, but it will surely pull some traffic from STL connections.
