  1. Over on airliners.net it was pointed out that Air Canada will be swapping out their 4x daily 50-seat CR2 flights for 3x daily 76-seat E75s. A really great upgauge for CLE and speaks to the strength of the market, in my opinion. The new schedule is effective 04 May.
  2. Lol, if so, Southwest has really grown their presence at CVG and the Cincy skyline has gotten a lot taller! More than likely the article and photo was meant for the Chicago biz journal and the Cincinnati paper just amended the story slightly for its use.
  3. This article from the Dispatch includes a great shot of downtown from the Rickenbacker airport control tower: https://www.dispatch.com/news/20200119/energy-water-benchmarking-proposal-open-for-comments
  4. This article is surprising, somewhat. The WN flight to OAK was a tough route to begin with: OAK is generally considered the less-preferred Bay Area airport, connections are limited, and Southwest probably had a tough time getting the yields necessary to make the O&D on the route work, especially once UA entered the market. Add the fleet constraints due to the MAX grounding and the route was ripe for the chopping block. I do think the route could work on a summer-seasonal basis once the fleet is back to full strength, however Southwest has shown no indication of the resuming the route. United's 2-month suspension of SFO shouldn't be anything to worry about. Airlines cut capacity quite a bit in January and February, and the route was a logical cut for the airline. It's worth noting that West Coast access still remains good with Alaska continuing to run SEA daily during the slower winter months. I guess what I'm trying to say is that the article paints a somewhat bleak picture unnecessarily. It's definitely an inconvenience for local businesses that need the service year-round, but if they continue to move the necessary passengers over existing hubs this season, it could cause the airlines to reconsider the seasonal suspensions in the winter of 2021.
  5. Some photos from atop the Canopy Hotel and the National Vets Memorial, respectively, from this past weekend.
  6. More about the possibilities for the YMCA (think it can become its own topic?): https://www.dispatch.com/news/20191020/ymca-officials-confident-new-use-can-be-found-for-old-downtown-building
  7. This article from the Dispatch mentions the planned 3rd and State development, but also paints a picture of the overall status of Capitol Square, including its history, present, and some glimpses into its future. https://www.dispatch.com/business/20191020/capitol-square-changes-seen-in-last-empty-parcels-development
  8. Wow! My thoughts exactly! Really can't wait for more details to be released! Could this be the ~ 700 footer that's been rumored around here and columbusunderground???
  9. Correct. The $80 million terminal face-lift was to get the 1950s-era headhouse and piecemeal additions up to current standards (HVAC and cosmetic upgrades) in order for the facility to handle a max passenger count of 10 million. If the airport breaks that threshold earlier that anticipated, indications are that the new terminal work could be moved up as a result.
  10. Below is the conceptual plan for the entire build-out of the new terminal, garage, rental car facility, and relocated Lane Aviation. It looks like a complete reworking of the taxiways to 10R/28L is part of the plan.
  11. Wow, bombshell announcement this Friday! Below is the initial write-up from the Dispatch: https://www.dispatch.com/business/20190816/apartments-offices-hotels-announced-for-scioto-peninsula Really impressive plan for the land; I really like the design, massing, and detail. Hopefully the materials used are as first-rate as the images make them out to be (no repeat of the Edwards Gay St. development, please). I also wonder how this will meld with Gravity 2.0 across the railroad tracks - given the designs for both, they should integrate well. Hopefully all continues as planned and we see the groundbreaking come to fruition this Spring.
  12. Only counting places I've been, in no particular order: Lisbon, Portugal Bangkok, Thailand Buenos Aires, Argentina Paris, France Mexico City, Mexico In the USA: New York City Chicago New Orleans Seattle San Francisco
  13. Hello, and thank you taking an interest in and enjoying the High Street Streetscape Improvement. As mentioned, I believe you're referring to the section of North High Street in the Short North stretching from the South around the Convention Center/Hilton all the way North to E. 7th Ave: Much of the information requested can be found here: https://www.columbus.gov/Templates/Detail.aspx?id=2147501680 ...and in this thread locally: Hopefully this information is useful to you.
  14. It's a shame, for sure, but the era of local media outlets has been drawing to a close for some time now. As mentioned, most television stations in Ohio, as well as around the country, are now owned by some sort of media giant. I'll miss the local flare of WBNS-TV/AM/FM.
  15. I could see arguments for all of the above (Cleveland and Toronto being Great Lakes metropolises, Cincinnati and Philly having dense, historic neighborhoods abutting the CBD, etc). Since no real parameters were given, comparison cities is pretty subjective. For Columbus, I don't see much similarity with OKC, SLC and ATL other than them being rapidly growing state capitals. Rather, I would compare Columbus to Austin and Indianapolis - maybe Madison, Raleigh, and Minneapolis as well. Again, this is all pretty subjective.
