It looks like the Sf will be coming from MEM starting in July via TUP. Also adding ATL-MSL ATL-CHA. No Dtw-TRI. I see alot of deadheading in the future out of DTW with all are overnights slowly going by by

Also, while adding those routes, they removed DTW-YKF and DTW-LBE

Not to mention CHO for sure was already gone. CRW goes away in July too. Are we still doing ITH or ROA? There are bad odors coming the way of DTW it would appear.

I believe ITH is gone at the end of summer according to NWA.com, But ROA is on the schedule for at least a couple months.

DTW-TRI! Damn, that's a long trip for a Saab! What's the block time for that trip?

If I remember it was about 2:05 or so... Actually TRI-MEM was even longer at about 2:15.

I think the TLH-FLL route is also blocked high as well. I don't remember off hand the exact number, but I think its 2:15 or 2:30'ish

Ouch!!!

Sitting in the back of a SAAB for over an hour is torture. Sitting in the back of a SAAB for over two hours is equal to waterboarding.

It's better than the 3.5 to 4 hour block times in the CRJ.

Sitting in the back of the CRJ is just as much torture. At least the nice hum of the engines on the Saab will put you to sleep

Is anyone else smelling the end of the Saab in DTW? And at Mesaba overall in the near future?

I wondered why they started painting 457 first and working backwards. It now makes sense. I'm guessing they'll park 402-411XJ.

Perhaps it also explains why they are getting the 900s painted so much quicker. Hope it doesn't mean what I am afraid of for the 200s too....

With the announcement of some EAS markets getting axed, I wonder how many of those north MI routes are going to survive. Those ESC-IMT/SAW/CIU/APN/PLN... etc routes are all but empty most of the time it seems.
