Beyond transportation options, it's a matter of prestige for a city to have commercial airline service. 

So Klamath Falls took a punch to the gut lately when SkyWest announced it would no longer serve Klamath Falls (as United Express) with daily flights to San Francisco and Portland. 

The final flights left before dawn on Wednesday, June 4.

Airport Director John Longley joins us to talk about what options remain for bringing commercial air service back to the Klamath Basin.
