I think cargo and shipments between the two will be huge, but people to fill a plane not so much. Why would they need to ship cargo between the two? It's a headquarters not a distribution hub. In conclusion would this allow AS or DL to probably add an EMB 175 flights between SEA and CMH yes with th...
