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

AA won't start RDU-PHX again. The yields were too low and they state that DFW serves just about everything PHX offers. The same explanation was given for not starting AUS in terms of vicinity to DFW.

Couple of more pieces of information: 1) DEN will be expanding C concourse by another 7-10 gates to meet more demand from WN. WN currently has 26 gates, and this would take them to 33-36 total gates. WN is shooting for at least 250 flights, and eventually 300 flights daily at Denver. Didn't WN just...
