Re: OAG Changes 8/12/2018: DL Drops CAK-DTW;CZ Adds LAX-SHE;UA Back in IAH-MZT;WN Builds LGB;F9 Extension

CLT gets some more F9 service, including new TPA. I rarely see flights that don't have a completely full gate area as of right now, regardless of the destination.
Also, has anyone seen GDL-CLT/ABQ loaded to GDS or is it just on Volaris.com right now?
