I'm looking for ideas about how the en route congestion problems
could be avoided by short-haul commuter flights.  One suggestion
that I have heard is to proceed from tower-to-tower, thereby
obviating the need to merge with en route flow.  Also, I understand
that the low altitude (under 10,000 ft) airways (at least in comparison
to the commuter and jetway altitudes) are underutilized.  Any comments?
