    BGR would be nice as it shaves off a considerable amount of time off of driving to Northern and Eastern Maine.

    Sadly, no commercial airport is convenient to Northwestern Maine (Rangeley). It's just about the same distance drive from either BGR or PWM.

    If you want some fun, you can take some of the logging roads into Rangeley. Also, 4 is an option coming in from NH.

    CO4 once operated an IAH-BGR-LGW flight in a DC10-10... usually operated with a DC10-30 and nonstop, but that night (back in the late '80s) the plane went MX and a Series 10 was subbed in. Since I had an onward connection to ABZ, CO moved me over to British Caledonian. :D

    Nice to see BGR get service.

    No press release on UA's Newsroom.

    AUG is a lot closer than either of them, but I don't know how helpful having to stop in BOS would be or how useful flying on 9k would be either.

    BOS-AUG is actually very reasonable priced. only about $20 more than the bus.

    On the topic, I would love a US route BOS-BGR, but I doubt that will happen.
