  1. Ugh, saturday-only service? Completely worthless. Ok but not optimal for weeklong trip, and useless otherwise. UA still the only real option for a quick weekend trip.

  2. Yes, primarily the msp route which would be nonstop for me. Atl schedule is crap too – need to waste a day in transit both ways, although this is tough to avoid for that route. Still, even out of atl, UA still gets you there an hour earlier with a reasonable 7am departure, and even better lets you fly out after work. UA also lets you leave 330 or 420 if you’re a risk taker, rather than 1230. Even from atlanta, you’re losing as much as a day’s worth of skiing vs flying UA.

    Late afternoon and evening departures please. I have to little vacation time to waste it in transit.

    I’d rather better-scheduled service through slc, although that would get no o and d traffic. At the very least I need schedules that don’t make me waste a vacation day in transit.

  3. This really is an example of DL’s ATL bias manifesting itself. ATL is a ridiculous place to fly to Aspen from. There’s very little O&D and geographically, MSP or DTW makes far more sense for the affluent East Coast and Midwest markets. Sometimes DL seems to want to force all their customers to transit ATL, which is one of the most unpleasant hub airports in America.

  4. naturally like your web-site however you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the reality however I will definitely come back again.|
