Re: Rumor: United to commence mainline service to Central Illinois airports

I like the idea, but I still don't get where the aircraft are coming from. They are taking a couple of additionally A319s, but since the 737-700 order was cancelled I didn't think they would have the aircraft to begin mainline service to all of these new destinations. (MSN, MKE, IND, CVG, MEM etc)....
