    I’m not surprised about dropping any of these routes, given that F9 was flying a less-than-daily schedule. CLE-LGA is flown by UA and DL and CAK-LGA is flown by FL/WN, and there are several flights a day on UA between CLE and IAD. Given the competition, it would be hard to attract business travelers if you are only flying the route 4x per week.

    I read somewhere that TTN-CLE was among the least full flights in the F9 system; given that TTN is more or less maxed out, I can see why F9 would want to look at different routes from TTN.

    It seems as if F9 is chasing leisure travelers now, anyway, given that they seem to be focusing more on vacation destinations (e.g., adding lots of new routes to Florida) rather than business routes.
