Today's World-Herald says that NWA will begin using new, larger 76-seat regional jets in 2 daily flights to Minneapolis starting next week.

This is great news for Omaha travelers, as it also means the addition of 40 new seats each day on NWA. Rumors also state that eventually all 5 daily flights will be upgraded.

Eppley saw 28,000 more people in July of 07 than July of 06. That's a substantial increase! It will be interesting to see how Midwest turns out with their new owners, and how that affects our emplanements...
