National Airlines and DCA service?

Anyone know when they will resume service to the DC area? I have 25k LatinPass miles I want to burn up and thougt it might be fun to use the miles on National instead of USAirways...

Last thing I read in Las Vegas was something about them still talking with FAA about that 156 seat limitation and the service restart date would hinge on what comes of those talks.

I'm surprised they haven't wet-leased a 737-800 or smaller in the mean time. They did this when they first started up using a Casino Express 737-200 from Chicago Midway. Sun-Country and Midway have some spare aircraft and would love the cash!

Or....fly out of IAD just like Alaska Airlines did when DCA was shut down. Now that they have resumed service to DCA, they have kept their flight out of IAD as well and are having great success with this route from both airports.
