July Massport Meeting In Worcester To Market ORH
This past month we at FlyORH thought about attending a Massport Board Meeting. These meetings are held once per month.
This month the meeting will start Thursday at 9:00AM in Boston, but there is no way we can go. As far as we can tell these board meetings are always held in Boston? Maybe the board should consider to moving one of board meetings to Worcester once per year?
Now couple this with the fact Massport will be spending $300,000 on a Worcester Airport Marketing campaign. what better way to market Worcester Airport, but to hold a monthly meeting here?? Imagine if the Massport Monthly meeting was held July in Worcester:
1) Bring attention to the fact Delta is starting service in August.
2) Bring attention the two carriers that are flying already (American and JetBlue).
Best part is that it is completely FREE marketing, but will help to change the image of Worcester Airport and is all part of marketing.

Good idea. Maybe we can get the mayor, city manager and Tim Murray to attend so they won't be "shocked" when an airline cancels service here. By the way, I don't believe that Massport knew nothing about the scale back of the AA service. If that's true, they really dropped the ball here. It created negative PR that might mitigate the new $300,000 marketing plan.

Massports neglect of ORH seems to finally be coming to public spotlight. This would be one way of bringing Worcester back on track. Finding out through a blog that one of your carriers is going from 14 flights a week to 4 five months into service is the epitome of embarrassment.

Finally Massports neglect of Worcester has come to public light. Everything at the airport right now comes with some sort of catch. CS we thought the same thing but heard directly from several sources involved with the airport, plus they pretty much admitted it in the Telegram article. This would be a big step in bringing ORH back on track.

Things might even get worse my friend. The cutbacks on the AA service might give JB the courage to finally nix the JFK route. Then of course we got the Delta to Detroit service (not Atlanta) coming this Summer. I don't see this doing any better than the AA service. I still don't understand where you can get from Detroit that you can't get from JFK. Mr. Davis needs to be replaced as airport director. He only has two airlines with five flights to worry about. He should be doing conference calls on a weekly basis with each airline to address any concerns they are having. His claim that he was blindsided is inexcusable. If he knew they were having issues then he could have held things off by promising the new $300,000 marketing plan. Have you ever heard of introducing a new product to market and waiting a year to market it? Even people who have yard sales post signs around the neighborhood a week before the event. Changes need to be made or ORH is going to be one big solar farm in 10 years

Completely agree and such a good point. With 5 flights a day, not a single one between 6 AM and 3 PM, you have zero excuses to not be in the loop with how awful this flight was performing. Absolutely atrocious all around.
