I didn’t realize how few flights CLE had to MCO compared to other airports in the region. For example, next March during spring break (ignoring Saturday peak day flights), CLE has just 3 daily flights to MCO, one each on United, Frontier, and Spirit.
PIT has 6 daily; 4 on Southwest, 1 on Frontier, and 1 on Spirit.
CMH has 6 daily; 4 on Southwest, 1 on Frontier, 1 on Spirit.
IND has 6 daily; 4 on Southwest, 1 on Delta, 1 on Frontier.
CVG has 4 daily; 3 on Delta and 1 on Frontier.
Substituting LCK for CMH, all airports have Allegiant service to SFB. CVG and IND have daily service. LCK is 5x weekly, PIT is 4x weekly, and CLE is the lowest at 3x weekly.
I’m sure the spring 2018 schedules are probably close to being set by now, but you’d have to wonder if WN or B6 would be eyeing CLE-MCO for daily (at least seasonally) service?
Interesting, CLE seems like a market ripe for more service to Orlando

Interesting, CLE seems like a market ripe for more service to Orlando, but I am especially surprised that WN hasn't had a go at it, I can't think of any reason why they couldn't make it work...
