America West Express began non-stop service between BIL, and PHX on the 27th of October last year. They are the only one to consistantly fill flights as far as I know. Their fares are not really that much lower. What makes them flourish?

Indeed. Buts its not just Montana that feeds into the BIL hub (Big Sky). They serve the following locations:
Idaho: Boise, Idaho Falls
Montana: Billings, Glasgow, Glendive, Great Falls, Havre, Helena, Kalispell, Lewistown, Miles City, Missoula, Sidney, Wolf Point
North Dakota: Bismarck, Williston
Washington: Moses Lake, Olympia, Seattle/Tacoma, Spokane
Wyoming: Casper, Gillette
I remember even before HP express served BIL, if you looked up a fare on travelocity from say- Williston, ND to Phoenix, AZ; It would route you through ISN-SDY-BIL-DEN (Big Sky) then from DEN-PHX (HP mainline). Lol.. glad its more direct now...
