    They need to make flights that go directly to places where people actually go in this area other than DC, this would include Myrtle Beach, Charlotte, Pittsburgh, and NYC. If they did that many more people would fly with them. The problem now is if you fly you have to first go to DC and wait 4-5 hours then board your next flight which just isn't practical plus you pay $300-500 more than flying out of Columbus. They need to get a good marketing person in their and change the flights. If they did that they could actually pull a profit.
