So Stillwater actually did nothing to get this upgrade. Basically AA switching from Envoy Air to SkyWest Air for its regional routes. Seems like a whole lot about nothing.
Stillwater kept their routes, because they did something when COVID hit. Ask the other 14 airports who got cut if they wish they'd have done more to keep theirs.

Not exactly sure why you'd think a press release announcing better passenger options, and a new terminal expansion are 'nothing.'

Stillwater kept the routes because OSU and the city of Stillwater subsidize it. I'm glad they did and I'm glad they continue to improve the airport.

They kept the routes because they got their Reps and Senator Inhofe involved immediately. Others weren't proactive in this regard and lost their routes.
I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact we cover the losses...

"OSU and the City of Stillwater would be required to make up any losses in revenue experience by American Airlines up to $2 million a year. The deal is similar to one that originated before the pandemic."

Correct, which is why securing Federal funding mattered.

I can’t remember the last report exactly but the economic impact from the flights was around 30 million per year for the city of Stillwater

Simple Simons closed. In the same building is a surf up cafe.
Firo closed and in its building will be Heato.
Thai Cafe is closing in 4 days. They are retiring and going back to Taiwan.

Thai Cafe was great but has lost its touch the last year. Coconut chicken got tough and old tasting and the building has been a dump for years.

I think Firo is going to be a tea shop.Not sure how you make a payment on a building like that selling tea unless it is overpriced tea that the college kids like.
