How are they going to accommodate CRJ-200 or CRJ-700 service to Vero Beach with a runway of 5,400ft? Is there a planned intermediate stop? I would imagine that neither of those aircrafts could take a full load of passengers and full to make it from New Bedford to Vero Beach. Thoughts? Seriously dou...

Also, DL and G4 have dropped their plans to begin SJU service.
