This was like buying a pig in a poke from the beginning....how many business people are there in Youngtown who need daily flights to Chicago?
And how many Chicago business people need to fly to Youngstown daily?

As far as regular passengers go, why fly a little jet to Chicago for a connection to a major airline when you could simply drive to Akron/Canton or Pittsburgh and already get on a major airline?

Heck, the blimp factory and the indoor NASCAR track makes more sense.....

I heard a report on the TV news this morning.  This flight service to Chicago may terminate at the end of August.

The new flights to Chicago are less than 40% of capacity.
