Example below..(about our "booming" ( ) service expansion" Written in August 07)
"In May 2006, American Airlines upgraded three of its eight daily departures to Dallas-Fort Worth to the popular 70-seat jets to meet existing demand. This was followed by Continental Airlines adding two additional flights to its Saturday schedule to the Houston Intercontinental Airport for a total of five. Most recently, Southwest Airlines announced new service (Twice Daily) to the Denver International Airport. There is also another key stat you may not be aware of. Amarillo Rick Husband International Airport is inching closer and closer each year to passing the 1,000,000 passengers in a year milestone."
I guess he forgot to mention that Both Delta and ZK have abandoned AMA since 05
Since the paper is churning out more bologna then an oscar meyer factory, i felt inquired to ask for your opinions (Don't be afraid to shoot them all down...im just curious )
AMA - DEN on Lynx aviation? - Or will WN's new DEN service scare any chance of that off? (ZK ended service the day before WN started theirs....which means now there is no way I can connect on F9 or UA )
AMA - DFW mainline on AA? - Or is the American Eagle service doomed to be here forever?
AMA - IAH mainline on CO? - Same as above.
AMA - SLC on DL/Skywest? - Been rumored many times but im starting to lose faith in this one. i always thought a few CR2s would do the job..
AMA - ATL on DL/Skywest? - Same as above.
AMA - AUS or HOU on WN? - Ive always wondered why we are one of the few tex-centric cities without WN service to HOU or AUS....And since they seem to be slowly moving away from their texas routes, im thinking if it hasnt come by now, it wont at all. Any ideas?
AMA - Chicago on Anyone? - WN sure isnt biting at the chance, nor is UAex or AAeagle. Im thinking this one is a bust as well.
AMA - Anywhere on skybus? - Or will our "Isolated" location doom any chance of that? (AMA "Metropolitan" population = 273,000 as of July 07)
The airport expansion will give us a total of 7 gates ("easily expandable to 10") , of which 5 will be used as of now. Am i the only one that thinks the expansion will turn out to be a 35 million dollar waste?
