What's to the north of A? Is there no expansion space there?
But let's ignore the expansion issue for a moment. There're still quick improvements possible:
  • Climate control the cattle chute via an HVAC system, not obnoxious, unsightly, inefficient, ancient wall fans.
  • Remove the sponge carpet.
  • Paint.

You must have been flying Saga Class. Otherwise, standing in line at the North checkpoint at CLE would have to seem enjoyable versus actually flying on an airplane for several hours.

Not sure this has been posted anywhere, but FI now has a contract with airspace lounge now where all food/drink is included (if on the FI flight and have access via the flight). One guest if in business, or one if you are saga gold (?). First night this applied was last Weds 5/30, also they said they will stay open later if there is a delay on that flight. Not the most exciting news, but good to know if you didn't otherwise.

UA Nonstop flights to RSW?

Iím planning on booking my parents on a nonstop CLE<>RSW in February 2019 on UA. They did have seasonal nonstop flights this year and last but I donít see anything in the system for 2019. Does anyone know if UA will bring back seasonal FL routes? Perhaps they havenít loaded the winter seasonals into the system yet? Thanks!

Hey, you were the one who asked if it was any good - and, by its name, the other thread is about "good deals".

FWIW, you could post a pointer back to this thread to your post...

Does anyone know anything about the all white DC-10/MD-10/MD-11 that's been parked by UPS/NASA for the past couple weeks?

Haven't been close enough to see the registration number on it & the fact that it's just been parked makes me even more curious about who's bird it is and what it's doing in Cleveland.

It's waiting to be painted with a livery: RNE Airlines. I'm starting daily service to PBH.

SwiftAir. They do Caribbean charters. They have been subbing wide bodies for their usual 734s since mid-May.
