Let's all hope that UNITED survives another year in this beleaguered industry. Otherwise Eau Claire/Chippewa Falls will have air service to nowhere.

I think that Eau Claire would be happier with the DL/NW if the little puddle jumpers were replaced by jet service.

I think if they make the move, they'll end up being a bit disappointed. Yes, Chicago (ORD) offers more destinations, which is good. But they also have a LOT more delays than MSP.

Why? A "jet" would be no faster on such a short route--the whole flight is basically an approach anyway. A turbo is basically a jet with the blades on the outside instead of the inside so a CRJ is quieter, that's about it.

From what I see on I94 it looks like most flyers out of the Chippewa Valley are taking an E350 Ford van to MSP!
