I always thought that Hooters air is a scheduled carrier.
We have this funny little side-set of charters in the US: Scheduled service charter airlines (I have no idea what the real name is!). Southeast Airlines, ATA, and Allegiant were all started as this, and as far as I know, Southeast still is...
IIRC, Hooters Air was started as one of these, but I do not know if they have sinced changed...

My friend flew Hooters air from Newark to Myrtle Beach and said it was god awful. First of all the plane left 2 hours early and then they cancelled his morning flight back and put him on a night flight. Stick to cooking buffalo wings Hooters.

Sorry about your friends flight but, I do have to ask this question. In the last 18 months of us being in business we have NEVER cancelled a flight. We have had serious delays but NEVER canceled a flight. The worst delay was about 2 months ago MYR-EWR 9 hours all due to weather and flow control. So how could his flight of been canceled. Must not have been an (H1) flight.

Public charters don't fall under the US DOT regulations of Part 121 Scheduled operations. IF all the passengers show up, then the airline can depart early. There is no law stating that flights "must" depart within 15 minutes of departure time.

I'll give you an example of a airline who is a charter but has sheduled flights. Southeast Airlines is a part 121 carrier. This may be something similar to what Hooters Air is. Their aircraft are owned by Pace Airlines. Under Federal Regulations, a Charter airline that sells seats to the public must hold it's money to the day of travel in a FDIC approved insured bank account. This is what Hooters Air may be classified as.

I don think the Hooters Girls are the flight attendants. I saw on their site that there are two Hooters Girls on every flight in addtition to the required number of flight attendants. I also remember seeing somewhere that the Hooters Girls assisted the Flight Attendants and did their normal Hooters Girl stuff, well what could be done on an airline with children around. I have heard though that they dont let 'fat' people be flight attendants. Is that true? Do all of the flight attendants have to look like Hooters Girls? Anyways I want to fly Hooters Air but can't because they don't fly out of LAX. I can't wait until they realize the potential and beocme a real airline.

I have heard that one of the problems Hooters Air is having is being based in MYR. Why? Because thats in the Bible belt and alot of folks down there don't like the idea that they think Hooters Air represents. I dont know if this is true, but I heard it from a pretty good source.
