    Ewr-oslo

    SAS was losing money flying a widebody from Oslo-EWR. Why should CO lose money by flying a widebody? They should do whatever is necessary to make money on the route, and in this case, its to fly the 757. Your logic is flawed. Just because everyone else does something doesn't mean you should...

    Ewr-oslo

    If it wasn't for the 757, EDI, LIS, BHX, and now Oslo and many other cities in Europe would not have direct service to EWR because it wouldnt be profitable to operate the flight. The 767's weigh more, can hold more cargo, and have more Business First seats. Flights to these smaller European...

    Gordon To Retire

    If Gordon decides to unretire, my thoughts are that he will go back to Boeing. It appears that he will continue to serve on CO's board as well, so it would be very unlikely he will move to a new carrier. He has experience at Boeing, and I think his leadership style can turn that company around.

    CLE-lower landing fees

    Thanks for letting us know. I was waiting for some sort of press release about it. Hopefully, the lower costs will allow for more growth to take place. Also, was this an across the board cut or was this a CO only cut?

    More new CLE service

    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/030409/daw045_...html New service to SAN and SEA and additional service to PHX and SFO. Also mentions the growth of Commutair in CLE. Does anyone have any idea how the loads have been on the new Commutair flights?

    CLE Landing Fees

    http://www.newsnet5.com/crimestoppers/2054...tml This is the link from the report I stated above. From the tone of the article, it sounds like CLE''s leaders are ready and willing to work with CO. Look forward to seeing the hopefully positive results from Gordon''s visit.

    CLE Landing Fees

    A report was just on the news about the landing fees at Hopkins. They say CLE''s landing fees are highest in the region. They gave PIT and DTW as comparisons to CLE PIT: about $1.50/ 1000 lbs. DTW: about $3.20/ 1000 lbs. CLE: $4.20/ 1000 lbs. They had a city council member on saying that...

    Route updates for CLE

    Excellent news for CLE. Since the old schedule is back, are their any more plans for new destinations? I could see Commutair moving into some of the towns in WV and PA that are dominated by US Airways. Could also try to enter into some small Canadian markets. Maybe EVV? I dont understand...
