I am so jazzed. I love winning once but winning twice is well…twice as nice. In case you haven't heard, Midwest Airlines contested the US Department of Transportation's slot award to US Airways for CAK-DCA service. Hey, we can't blame them for trying!
DCA slots are so valuable that airlines will do just about anything to get them. After a bit of back and forth between the airlines and a little letter from our President, Rick McQueen, the US DOT said "US Airways gets 'em- final answer." OK, this may be my interpretation of their 5 page response…but it is what really counts.
So, we can say, without a doubt, totally for sure, indisputably, irrefutably, and undeniably that flights to Washington D.C. Reagan National Airport will be starting on January 25, 2009. Flights go on sale January 10th. Book your tickets…on the 10th… at www.usairways.com.
Oh yes, Happy New Year everyone!
