NW tríed ELP-MSP and failed... about 3 hrs maybe a little more, on a cramped crj (who likes to fly on acrj's for more than 3 hours), why did't they try at least a DC9-10, maybe they would have done better. ELP needs better airline service overall, depends too much through connections at DFW, PHX or...
