The UPoR had a piece over the weekend on how Charlotte Douglas International Airport ranked last year. Problems in the story? Absolutely. Consider this passage, the last paragraph of the story:
Last year, Charlotte Douglas added two new airlines, Frontier and ViaAir, and gained new flights. American Airlines, which merged with US Airways in 2013, added domestic flight between Charlotte and Evansville, Ind.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Tulsa, Okla.; and Oklahoma City, Okla. American also added a second daily flight to London’s Heathrow Airport.
You got to take the good with the bad. The airport also lost service to Sao Paulo last year, Rio de Janeiro early this year while the summer-seasonal flights to Frankfurt (second flight), Brussels, Manchester, England, and Lisbon won’t return this summer.
