Does anyone know anything about this say it on the local news today:


Who would run the service, my guess would be ATA?

I know a few years ago, USAirways had 'presence' of sorts in IND. I don't know what they are doing there now and its too late and I am too lazy to look @ the timetable.

But, what kind of crack are the 'airport officials' smoking:

Airport officials expect airfare for round-trip flights to Indy to run between $100 and $200 dollars.

$100 round-trip??? $200 - not in today's world catered to the biz traveller interstate (where time is too valuable).

I can't imagine this to cement. Sorry.

Wouldn't shock me if NW (Mesaba) was in the running for this route... they've kinda been "subsidy whores" of late (new service to Florida from FNT and GRR) and they tried something similar a few years back in South Dakota, allocating a Saab 340 for a RAP-PIR-FSD roundtrip or two.

I'll stay tuned...


Create your own luck.

Are the NW FNT/GRR-FLA flights subsidized? I had not heard that one.

Who said that this new service has to be operated by a "major" commercial airline? Here in MI we have intrastate service from Superior Aviation based in Lansing I believe. They offer charters, but also regular scheduled service between LAN, Escanaba, and Iron Mountain using the Cessna Conquest. So for little flights like between SBN and IND, it does not have to be provided by a major or one of their regional partners in order to be considered scheduled service.
