Default ATL Stagnent?

Is it just me or has growth in ATL completely stagnated? It blew up big initially with rumors of even getting 700 flying but now I question if it'll even be a long term base. Thoughts?

Im guessing OO was planning on getting more of the L-ASA flying. So they put in line mx and a crew base to show they were ready. Passed the garbage TA last year which was the final stake in XJETs heart. Then when all the XJET flying went up for bid. Endeavor got most of it and all the good stuff. Things change so quickly. OO could staff all of the current ATL flying from DTW, and MSP through SBN and FWA.

Even the Endeavor guys have complained about ATL being stagnant. The ASA flying is being wound down a lot of it is being consolidated down to ATL at the moment. Thereís still half a year of flying for ASA Delta flying. If it doesnít grow by December then thatís probably all sheís gonna be.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts everyone. I guess time will tell with the final winding down of L-ASA. Hopefully those guys land on their feet and get the job of their choice.

Over at endeavor the grumbles are about the same. There was hope for a lot of growth very rapidly but itís kind of slowed while they are having large New York vacancies as of late. No one is quite sure why.

Sorry for the ignorant question, but are you saying some of the ASA/XJet flying is being wound down and transferring over to the OO side?

Not some but all; Itís being transferred to both OO and 9E because Delta pulled the plug on them. They ended their contract early, ASA supposed to be completely gone by October. AA also cut ties with ASA so the ASA\XJT CRJ side will completely disappear soon.
