    Never been a fan of EAS, even though the airport that I have often used (SOW) gets EAS subsidies. It doesn't seem to do anything to ease airfares, but I'm not sure that is what it is intended to do. I can often fly cross-country cheaper than the fare SOW-PHX.

    If the population and demand is not sufficient to pay for the service, the service may not be as necessary as implied.
