    Maybe FedEx will get into passenger service to fill the gap. There is little difference between cattle class and freight these days 😉

    Attention MEM: please call CVG to compare notes.

    Attention DTW: you might start planning now…

    Next question, how long before CLE becomes a stub?

    Agreed, MEM will turn into CVG. But at least MEM already has FL service and hopefully WN whereas CVG is the only major OH city without WN/FL service. (CMH, CLE, DAY, CAK)

    I wouldn’t worry about DTW anytime soon. There’s enough local traffic and the region MSA is in the neighborhood of 4 million people compared to CVG of 2M and MEM of 1.3M.

    Acronyms make people sound smarter than they actually are.

    Sounds like the same thing that has happened to STL since the TWA and AA merger. Sorry Memphis.

    While Detroit has a lot of population, its economy is shrinking rapidly and few who are there are distance travelers. O+D stats are very weak there.

    Detroit is the only top-50 MSA in the US to have negative population growth over the last 100 years.
