Iíve been to Big Bend and Balmorhea and Fort Davis and Mc Donald multiple times as I actually lived in Midland for a few years. None are worth the risk of having to spend any time in Midland or Odessa.

I have an ATL based friend who had to be in Bangor last week and he had to connect at JFK. He said this was the first time he connected anywhere in almost a year. So, I'll add ATL-BGR to this list.

At least I’m not the only one on here who would love to see this route daily again, even if only 1x daily. Probably won’t happen any time soon even with the # of people on here who would like it to be served. DL would need to get the slot from another flight at DCA and I doubt DL would ever do that for MCO-DCA.

PWM has a lot of seasonality out of DTW & ATL. DTW-PWM goes from 3x CR9 on an August Monday to 2x CR9 on a January Monday. ATL-PWM goes from 3x MD-90 to 1x MD-88.
No doubt about the huge seasonality flying to/from Maine.

I tend to go to Maine at least once a year (and it's not business) and my final location is equidistant between both airports, so I'll usually do a search and go to which ever one works best for my needs. Last time I went in the winter, it was much easier to go out of Logan instead because of scheduling.

It would be nice to have a second ATL flight in the winter that leaves PWM in the mid to late afternoon even if it was on a regional plane of some sort, it's still an improvement.

On the PWM front would love RDU - PWM but that's a pipe dream though Frontier just launched that route. We're headed up for a wedding in a few weeks and ended up doing the RDU - BOS direct with car option

RDU-AMS so I could connect onward in Europe without transiting CDG and flying Air France would be pretty nice.

MEM - SLC. The only westbound flight out of MEM is a once a day to LAX in the early AM.

I have a feeling we won't see anything new at MEM until the renovation is complete and Delta moves back to the B concourse.

I agree.....this would be a great flight if they would put it back on....I am assuming the Occupancy Load did not support it. MEM is one of the greatest and easiest airports to navigate.

Mco - Den would be good. Save me going through msp as I try and avoid Atl.

With Southwest out of FNT bringing back DTW-FNT would make sense. NW used to fly DC9s on this route.

I agree DTW-SMF/SJC/OAK is needed as well.

ALB-ATL increased frequency to 4x or 5x daily, even if additions are Delta Connection

ALB to any connection out west (SLC, SEA, or even LAX)

And selfishly, DFW-IAH so that I can connect on AF, KL, and KE with a 30min flight

I'd add CMH-SEA and CMH-AMS/CDG.

DAL to literally anywhere else besides ATL. Prefer MSP/SLC/LAX but I'll take anything.

Hell I'll take more flights out of both Dallas Airports but it just won't ever happen.
