Interesting bit about this, there's an email in the article to "suggest routes." I found that funny, but it's a good way to make locals feel like their input is heard and get the word about the service out there. I like the strategy. I emailed her just for the hell of it and got a really quick reply. I doubt anything will come of it, but it's kind of cool that they're that communicative.

Yes, agreed. It is interesting. I think they are weighing the options of Newark and Myrtle Beach. Maybe they are trying to gauge which would have more demand, but that is just a guess.

It has been great seeing the increased activity at the airport. I’ve seen larger aircraft in the past at EWB (DC-9’s, C130’s, ATR 72) but it’s nice to see a larger regularly scheduled flight. They used the larger CRJ700 on one trip instead of the normal CRJ200.

Looks like offshore wind is gaining some momentum in New Bedford. Last week, an offshore wind training facility was proposed at an former seafood packaging plant. This week, a large staging facility was proposed for 29 waterfront acres just south of downtown that currently houses the unused Cannon St. power station. It also looks as if this project will include a small mixed use component (adjacent to the existing hotel).
