Re: Detroit air service discussion - 2018

I agree. I also think that it is highly probable that F9 will add more service sooner than later. They only have one gate though right now don’t they? I think F9 should make AUS and DEN year round. Possibly even MIA. I found out that the additional 763 flight to CDG is seasonal and last returning fl...

Let’s compare to 2016:

2017 pax number: 34.701.497
Easy math this time! So an overall increase of 300.243 passengers. For a percentage it comes out to be: +0.872%!
