Re: What's Going In CLE - 2018

Speaking of BKL, trouble at OneJet. Are they out of funds? I hope Ultimate Air is still a separate entity and not part of OneJet yet so that it could be separate from this and continue to prosper at BKL...and hopefully add LGA and MDW. http://www.post-gazette.com/local/region/2018/08/10/OneJet-subj...
