Re: What's Going On At RDU - Part 1

I think a little feed should be considered by DL in the following stations:

2x ORF
2x EWN
2x AVL
2x GSP
1x CAE
2x CHS
1x MYR
2x OAJ
2x TYS

RDU-LHR typically has lower loads in the winter... as do most TATL flights.. but it still operates year round for a reason. I'm sure if it was too low and not making money, AA would find a way to suspend it but they haven't so I would assume it's still making plenty of profit for AA...
