Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

NAIL ON THE HEAD about United’s inconsistency and how unbelievably ANNOYING it is for business folks. I heard in November that United was transitioning OMA back to United employees and focusing on schedule/service in these mid sized markets. Clearly there isn’t any indication of that thus far. Note...

Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

Still, what is up with United? It is peculiar, to say the least. They're to airlines what CSX is to railroads. Yes, they killed their schedule! 2 examples, on a Wednesday in January, the 1st flight to Houston was at 11:30am, the 1st flight to Denver was at 940am and the 1st flight to Chicago was at...

PS: I wouldn’t fly anywhere on Allegiant - even if you paid me to, which did almost happen once.
