Allegiant, what a ho-hummer ... A couple of years ago we'd have been talking about it for weeks. But times change and, you're right, there hasn't been a lot to talk about lately.
My hope, that AA with its gate change may have a few surprises for CLE, was misplaced. Apparently, gates C10 and C14 were abandoned by UA a year ago; they just never got around to taking the signs down until lately. Those two plus C2 will be common use gates, available to B6, AA, or UA as needs may arise.
Lately the good news has been mostly a lack of bad news.
Slightly good news: BKL with just one route kept getting busier as the year went on. 16,418 total pax for 2016; that makes it bigger than most airports in the EAS program. And B6's December load factor was slightly over 88%. BOS seems to be a hot spot lately with even UA (the only CLE carrier that continues to show y-o-y passenger declines) adding a frequency for the summer.
