It may only be Youngstown, but it's fun to post something new in this topic.  Allison Grant says in the PD that a Continental feeder will restart CLE-YNG service in a few months.


I have to guess that would be Gulfstream, using a B1900 displaced from Florida when they get their Saabs flying.


Youngstown is the new Houston.  Cool

In Cleveland

Continental Airlines cut service out of Cleveland in recent years as rising jet fuel prices and the recession took hold.

(Continental also added service -- to Green Bay, Wis. And one of its regional partners is expected to start flying to Youngstown within the next few months.)

Could flights to any of these recent nonstops out of Cleveland be restored with the kind of air service push Pittsburgh is trying?

Allentown, Pa.; Austin, Texas; Birmingham, Ala.; Charleston, S.C.; Charleston, W.Va.; Des Moines, Iowa; Greensboro, N.C.; Lexington, Ky.; Little Rock, Ark. ; Norfolk, Va.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Omaha, Neb.; Ottawa, Canada; San Antonio, Texas; Sarasota, Fla.; Savannah, Ga.; Toledo; Tulsa, Okla.

Cleveland also lost its only trans-Atlantic flights in the fall of 2008, seasonal service to both London and Paris.


All the cities fell off Pittsburgh's nonstop route map when US Airways

If UA decides to retain CLE as a small hub, somebody with a sharp pencil could probably make the case that CRW and ABE should be a CLE spokes, not ORD. A number of those other cities are up around 100 O&D and could support service on their own.

CO's pulldown pushed the CLE emplaned-pax costs up by about $3 a head between 2009 and 2010. Adding back some service would make that number better.

 Off topic: I try not to criticize, but that regional flying plan for PIT will cost a fortune in subsidies. Pittsburgh-Latrobe??? Are they kidding?

That would be interesting, we haven't served YNG in ages it seems.  It's always amazing to me how service to so many cities just comes and goes, each one a pawn in the big airline game.  Here today, gone tomorrow, maybe back again next year...it never ends. 

How can the public trust airlines that tout new service to this destination or that with press conferences and news events and other hullabaloo, only to spit it out when they don't like it?  Friend today, gone tomorrow.  I know it's all business and its pretty much always been this way, but the older I get, the more I get jaded as to real intent.  I don't pretend to know how this business really operates, but as time goes by, my eyes get wider while my spirit for the industry darkens.

I still love the machinery that makes this industry go, but it's the guts of the the industry that make my gut queasy anymore.

Okay...enough of that...off my soapbox now!
