I hadn't heard of USA3000 Airlines 'till reading the paper today and finding that they're starting service to RIC 2x/wk and STL 4/wk in December. Looking in the May/June Flight Guide...I found that they also have 5x/wk ORD (making it the 4th carrier on the route, asides UA, AA, NK), 3x/wk CLE (to compete with CO), 2x/wk to DTW, PHL, PIT (to compete with NW and US respectively)
I did some research about them, and I found out that they seat 168 on their A320's....jetBlue only has 156. Has anyone ever flown them before, the seat pitch must be horrible. Any thoughts on this little-known airline..

Flying them Monday FLL - PHL, after flying ACA PHL - JFK and DL Song JFK - FLL. It cost $99 one way and I hear they have hot towels and full meals. Have only heard the best things. I'll be sure to post a T/R.

This little known airline is actually owned by a travel company called Apple Vacations. Apple vacations focus is charter flights sold with hotel packages from numerous cities in the USA. These flights they are now running to Florida are basically during times when they are not running the charter flights for apple vacations and other wise would be sitting idle and thus making no money. Any city to Florida is a pretty easy sell for the most part.

USA 3000 Airlines is owned by Apple Vacations, A leading U.S. tour operator. They mainly fly charters but have started using their aicraft when not flying charters for Florida Flights. They were founded in 2001 and currently operate 10 A320-200s. 7 of the 10 aircraft were delivered new to the carrier. They do a nice job, and provide a quality product. Below is their fleet:
