Re: Indianapolis Aviation Thread - 2018

Yeah, but there is pretty much 0 PDEW between SDF and IND. For a focus city, the routes need to be mostly supported by local demand, with connections used to top-off loads on the routes. IND-CDG doesn't need connecting traffic, RDU and PIT get along just fine with little and no connecting traffic r...

Re: Indianapolis Aviation Thread - 2018

I think if IND gets above 50 departures with some additional p2p flights it will be officially considered a focus city. 1xAUS 1xBDL 1xSAT 2xSLC 2xLAX 1xRSW (Seasonally daily) 1xTPA (Seasonally daily) 1xLAS Would get close to 50, if you add in well timed feeder flights to MEM, JAX, MSY, and MKE whic...

Re: Indianapolis Aviation Thread - 2018

SDF is too close of a drive to IND and CVG for that to work, IMO Back in the Comair days I flew SDF-CAE with a connection in CVG. I realize CVG was the Comair hub, but if DL could make money on it, I could see a daily CRJ200. Yeah, but there is pretty much 0 PDEW between SDF and IND. For a focus ci...
