Cleveland business, civic and political leaders remain concerned about Cleveland Hopkins Airport's ability  to remain a United Airlines hub.

Last week, the Greater Cleveland Partnership rallied members to discuss the issue.

The Partnership is out to convince businesses and private travelers it's worth sometimes paying more to fly out of Hopkins in order to keep the hub here.

The hub guarantees more flights and more direct flights for travelers, a vital feature for business travelers seeking to avoid the cost of multiple flight trips.

An agreement negotiated by then-Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray with United/Continental to preserve at least 90 percent of their flights for two years after the merger expires later this year.

Some are concerned what happens next.

Tom Beres discusses this subject with Greater Cleveland Partnership President Joe Roman, former Shaker Heights Mayor Judy Rawson and former State Representative Matt Dolan on this edition of Between the Lines.
