Juicy presentation from Pinnacle Airlines about Colgan Air's Q400 expansion

My good friend and colleague, Air Transport Intelligence US Editor Lori Ranson, sniffed out this late-2007 presentation by Pinnacle Airlines executives to investors.

There is plenty of stuff worth chatting about in here, but highlights include Pinnacle subsidiary Colgan Air's potential to expand its feeder deal with Continental Airlines to include 30 Bombardier Q400s, and a list of projected cities to be operated by the regional as Continental Connection from Newark.

Amusingly enough, the route map mentions IATA code BTW (Batulicin Airport in Indonesia) as a destination, but I think it's safe to assume they mean BTV (Burlington, Vermont).

If that wasn't enough, however, enthusiasts have started revealing initial cities to be served by Colgan at Newark in drips and drabs.

And now I'm being told that the first flights have been loaded into the CRS and include three daily flights from Baltimore/Washington to Newark starting on February 4.
