    Today US Airways (NYSE: LCC) began daily, nonstop service for its customers in San Diego to Washington Reagan National Airport. Military, business and leisure travelers in Southern California will have convenient access from San Diego International Airport to the nation's capital's downtown airport for the first time.

    "We are delighted to connect the San Diego community with Reagan National for the first time," said Andrew Nocella, US Airways' senior vice president, marketing and planning. "Not only will we offer our customers in San Diego direct access to our nation's capital, but the new flight offers the same convenient service to our Washington customers – providing them the opportunity to visit San Diego's beaches and top attractions. With San Diego established as the West Coast's largest U.S. naval operation, it is also important to connect our military personnel to the District." ]

    I wonder if they will encounter problems taking off with a full airplane and enough fuel for the trip with the short runways at DCA.

    Alaska has been flying DCA-SEA and DCA-LAX for years with no problems.

    AA is also flying DCA-LAX, while Virgin America and UA will be flying DCA-SFO.

    Upon a quick check of the flight loads, I'd have to say the route is performing well.
