Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

Southwest's previous seasonal LAX service is going year round per their schedule extension announced today. http://www.omaha.com/money/southwest-will-offer-nonstop-flight-to-los-angeles-year-round/article_b57e939a-255d-5f9d-b0ad-abaf3906f7f3.html It seems like A A is throwing in the towel on OMA-LA...

Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

PS: I wouldn’t fly anywhere on Allegiant - even if you paid me to, which did almost happen once. So whenever they announce new service I just hope it creates more demand and competition so a real carrier starts flying the route. One of their Des Moines-Phoenix(ish) flights recently was delayed abou...

Probably my least favorite airline to fly. Of all of the delays, misrouted baggage, cancelled flights, you name it, that I can remember, most were United.

Northwest MO where it may be closer than KC, Up until ~2006, I never considered flying out of OMA (I live in the burbs). MCI was always cheaper and it wasn't close.

The intersection is 3/4ths open, except for Giles west of the intersection. The SE quadrant was untouched--no new bridge over the Pap--is that for next year?

That said, the simple fact that the two Ts are spread out--and signaled--and three-laned will help out a ton.
