While I am no fan of the current regime, I think it's a little silly to say they'd sacrifice profits at CLE in the short-term to jimmy up a PR front to leave. If they're getting more aggressive on pricing because they no longer have to rely on CLE as a reliever hub between EWR/IAD and ORD, then that is a different story.
