walt jones 4 months, 3 weeks ago on Steamboat Springs City Council good for takeoff on Houston, Dallas summer flights

Milne responded that because those flights are coming out of large hub airports, that is his expectation...

Cmon Bob those hubs are larger than Denver and we all see how unreliable Republic had been so his answer is saying he has no idea if it will be any better than Denver. Its has less to do with the Hub than the feeder airline. SKYWEST is a much more reliable operator than Republic hands down. As mentioned before the LMD needs to ask which operator will be used for the Texas flights.


walt jones 5 months ago on Airline service board recommends summer flights from both Houston and Dallas

There are 10 American Eagle Operators and just like the issues that Republic Airlines has with cancelled flights at YVRA in the summer for United the LMD needs to request 1 of the 3 operators Envoy, PSA, SkyWest for the service any other will have the same issues as Republic with crew hours and chronic cancellations due to various issues.

Scott, you just may have been correct! Pro Challenge not happening in Colorado in 2016 due to sponsor and funding. At least that is one less time I gotta hibernate during the summer!


walt jones 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Snow on Rabbit Ears Pass near Steamboat Springs is six feet deep and counting

Interesting how there is a article any time there is a chance of snow in the forecast but when there is 10 days of sun and spring like conditions forecasted like this week, no such mention of it. Hmmm must not want to make the tourists unhappy


walt jones 6 months, 1 week ago on Steamboat officials approve contract for summer air service from Dallas on American

Does anyone know the fixation with Texas and Steamboat? I have no issues with Texans, some family is there, I just dont see why we have Houston and now Dallas in the summer. Is there no other demand from any other states to come here?

Also I will go out on a limb and say it will be a huge improvement to see SkyWest be the UE carrier going in and out of HDN. CRJ are a quick safe reliable aircraft and SkyWest business model is head and shoulders above Republics.
