The more I think about MKE, RAH, and the ending DL agreement, the more sense it makes to me for RAH and FL to come to some sort of an arrangement. I think that RAH and FL should enter into some pro-rate agreement where RAH flies E70s (in a new 6C64Y config.) and ER4s out of MKE in conjunction with FL flying 717s and 73Gs. Obviously OO would be dumped. I would assume they would fly under the FL brand because IMO the moment the YX brand goes away, FL becomes the most recognized brand in MKE. This may seem like a big reduction of flying for RAH out of MKE, but of the planned 101 flight schedule this summer only 21 are on the E90 or A319. The other 80 flights are on E70s, ER4s, or ER3s. RAH could move the A319s and E90s to MCI or DEN to boost operations there. FL and F9 would then finally create a systemwide codeshare that would create a nationwide duo. In the future, RAH could potentially add some regional flying out of BWI for FL.
