I was really hoping for CVG, as I need to get to Louisville (and I know they will never get a direct flight to Seattle), but this is good too.

Fantastic news. Excited to not see the inside of ORD again for quite a long time.

The press release from the Columbus Airport indicated that the service coincides with Spring Break at Ohio State.

I feel like just yesterday I read someone’s post that complained about a lack of AS service to Ohio. Perfect timing!

Haven't ever been, but maybe I should visit now.

Might be some people going the other way. I had a friend from Seattle who was in med school in the area.

I wish they had it 20 years ago when I lived in Columbus. I saw way too much of ORD/MSP/DTW/MEM and DEN! Happy to see this new service.

Maybe not SEA, but connections to Hawaii, or S California? Also, students visiting families

That may explain the saver Y space 10K award level being available on the way over and 30K award on the way back.
