Smart move on his part - RDU is a great airport. One my favorites in the entire US. The problems at CHA are not his and will be tough to solve.

I'm thinking this guy sees the handwriting on the wall for the Chattanooga Airport. The future of regional airports is not a healthy one as long as their success is beholden to the feeder airlines that service them. As it is now, I would rather fly to Nashville or Atlanta and shuttle or rent a car. The odds are not in your favor trying to make a connection from your airport…3 out of the last 5 times I flew in and out of Chattanooga, I experienced issues…to the point where I had to rent a car, drive to Nashville, pay a huge fee for a ticket to get home to California most recently. I will never use your airport again…and I don’t think I’m alone in my thought process.
