  1. Last ditch effort to make GSP work. Atlanta only with 3 flights a day for 2016.......aren't the lease agreements up between SWA and GSP at the end of 2016???? Hmmm. http://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/money/2015/10/27/southwest-airlines-scales-back-gsp/74676048/
  2. SWA has somewhat changed their business model and basically transformed into a mainline carrier. They aren't interested in smaller markets like GSP as they once were. They are re-allocating their planes to go head to head with other mainline carriers on high demand / high volume routes. When the Wright Ammendment ends in Oct, SWA will be flying to LAX, LGA, etc from Love head to head with AA from DFW. Those old Love-Little Rock type routes are being pruned quickly. Their planes do fly full, just not from GSP.
  3. What to do about IAD, what to do? Now that CLE is history, word is IAD will be "right-sized". Obviously can't let go of the international and major feeder routes, but right-sizing is on the way. I feel sorry for UA, in that market. With the AA / US merger, AA and DL now have almost a total lock on DCA. Then you have SWA at BWI. Couple all that with UA's poor customer service metrics of late and it is kind of sad for IAD.
  4. This circles back to one of my previous post, for which I was bashed by many, that GSP is one of the worst performing cities in the SWA system. Unless something drastic happens, SWA will fly off into the wild blue yonder. Chat among many in the corp staff is 100% negative about their limited future at GSP.
  5. Their load factors have been only average from the start of service. The reason BNA and MCO were cut completely and BWI was cut on number of daily flights. Sadly, GSP is not working. My understanding is that GSP is currently in the bottom 5 for all cities served. On the other hand, Charleston is doing excellent.
  6. Expect more news in the near future about Southwest Airlines and GSP......hint, it will not be good.....
  7. "I'm not really a nuclear engineer, I just rented a place at The Peacock". LOL The lobby will have a do it yourself waffle iron in the shape of the state of SC and all the cinnamon buns you can eat! This is one happening development!
  8. WOW just WOW!!!!! What an incredible building!!!! Fantastic! Such a great addition to downtown!! Greenville is ahead of the pack on the up and coming edgy / trendy Sleep Inn style architectural movement. QUITE IMPRESSIVE!
  9. Agreed. Major, major loss. Not sure how the city of Greenville ever let this happen.

    The West End

    Horrific mural. Nevermind the fact the average Greenvillian has no concept of Altruism. LOL.
  11. It was a 50 seat RJ and actually was almost always full. Easy way to do a quick Midwest connect. Fluor employees could always be counted on for a large percentage of the passengers, going to their Cleveland / Ohio / Midwest / PA operations and industrial projects. GSP was one of the few smaller Southern markets that had a nonstop to that specific hub, and the only SC city with a nonstop to Cleveland.
  12. No fault of GSP, but by June, the United (ex Continental) nonstop to Cleveland will be gone, as United is dismantling the Cleveland hub. Another nonstop for GSP, gone.
  13. Well thank you guber, that you think my statement MAY be factual. My chest swells with pride!!!! LOL! Confused on your whole post.....there will be no more AirTran shortly, as when SWA bought them, they starting phasing out the AirTran brand. Secondly, there are no longer any smaller AirTran planes. Southwest sold the AirTran 717 planes to Delta MONTHS ago. SWA will remain a purely 737 fleet. GSP, in the mind of SWA is history. Once some remaining contractual obligations are over, SWA is gone from what I hear.
