Does anyone know specifically when Independence Air will bring their blue and white birds down to Fort Lauderdale? I would imagine that they would want to get their planes flying on this route (FLL-IAD) before the holidays. Have they taken delivery of any of the A319s or is that why they only come as far south as JAX currently?

The first airbus is delivered in sept, and should be in revenue service by Nov 1. Yes, the florida market will be hit big. The rumors are that because our airbus MX base is temporarily in MCO, that will be the first florida city. From the corporate slide show it seems like they will be flying into MCO, TPA, RSW, PBI, and FLL. But these things are subject to change and nothing is certain until the press release says so. I would figure FLL should start late this year, or early next.
