was just bouncing around on justplanes.com, and was looking at their aviation news page, and it stated that European Transair will begin charter operations to Mexico and the Caribbean from the unused Mesa, Arizona airport in Aug 03 using a mix Boeing 737/767 aircraft, and ATR's as feeders. Hoax? or has anybody else heard anything else about this.

Wait, wasn't there a rumor a few years ago when the terminal was first built that WN was going to put a few flights into Williams Gateway because they weren't going to be able to expand enough at Sky Harbor and to further the market share in Phoenix

There would need to a lot of growing in what is laughingly called the "east valley" before an airline could operate form Williams with large aircraft. I could almost imagine Mesa operating RJ service to LAX, DEN and DFW. I've been to "Willie" countless times and I assure you it is not a pleasant drive.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.
