Okay, but as long as CVG has TATL service--which it will for the foreseeable future--why would someone drive to CMH for this flight?
Oh certainly. Actually that flight does indeed syphon traffic from CMH. In the hub heyday, it was estimated that CMH experienced approximately 8% leakage to CVG for the intl nonstops that were available. However, the leakage on the other end from Cincinnati to CMH is/was greater. More people looking to escape higher fares than limited nonstop European service.
