Re: NFL Raiders to LAS, How Will it Impact OAK

I am in agreement with the above comments that this will likely have no effect on Oakland flights. If there is a change, I would wonder if there would be an additional flight on game day or the day before to get Oakland fans to Las Vegas and back home.

Re: Proposed Essential Air Service elimination
