Re: What's Going In CLE - 2018

Looking at Flightaware, there are five flights all leaving at noon tomorrow from Burke to Centennial, Colorado. That's pretty unusual. Same flight plan filed 5 times (though with different aircraft) or something going on?

DFW goes to 3 738s, with only 2 MD80s left. Net of all this is a seat *increase* for the fall season. And it was i...
