Good to see...don't really know what United is doing though by having both departures in the morning. I personally would think a morning and mid-afternoon flight would be more desireable. Another new destination for the Star Alliance network creating some competition for the Skyteam trapped DAB.

You can book it on United.com now

This will stick unlike the weekend only Air Canada that canceled back in 2003.

Not a rumour. Washington Dulles-Daytona Beach is already bookable on res systems, starts 08Feb06. It will be announced later this week, as will Denver-Knoxville, Tenn.

Cool... Would have liked to see something other than a CRJ (read: Ted), however any new airline is welcome to reduce fares down here... I too am wondering what airline will operate this route.

Are you sure Mesa is going to be doing DEN-TYS? Skywest has done most of the TYS flights out of ORD the past year or so, it would make sense to continue the plane on to DEN. Then again... we all know just how little sense UA makes.


What do I know? I just fly 'em.......

Mesa is doing IAD-DAB. Skywest is indeed doing DEN-TYS.

Why didn't they do this before ZW stopped flying for United? I would love to be able to nonrev into DAB, as my alma mater is in that town and I still have friends in the area.

Nice to DAB getting more service.

Just in time for Speed Weeks and Spring Break. Wonder how long they will operate it after the February and March rush?

Wow, and I thought for sure we'd see a US return to DAB before they saw someone else. Great news for DAB - I'm sure the flights will do very well...

...and another travel option for PVD travelers is always a good thing too. PVD connects to both DAB flights in each direction (1 each way is 3 hour layover though). No bargain fares yet as the rountrip I looked at in Feb was almost $800.00!

That's why UA is coming in. Because they see the high fares DL is getting. It's not like a LCC is coming in, I'm afraid...

I read that UA got some breaks to start service there . Good timing,right before the -500.

I spoke with the airport management at DAB some time ago. They do not reduce the gate fees there. However, they have a budget to "help" the airline with advertising in the area (billboards, tv, radio...)..not sure how much they put into it, but it helps. They also waive the landing fees for the first year to each new city opened. So no landing fees for this service for a year from the service start date. Not such a bad deal.

I was an intern at DAB this past spring, and I can honestly say that any perspective airline is offered a very nice advertising package. Though from what I understand, all of DAB's advertising is in-house, and it is lacking in creativity quite a bit.

Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!
25 B777ER : I don't suspect this route will last. The local paper here in DAB has a UA source stating that the initial round-trip fare would be over 700 dollars.
26 MAH4546 : I read that article, and it is pointless. The intro fares and proper inventory for the flight have yet to be loaded.
27 RL757PVD : Yea..that local article was dumb since they had no sources of comments from either the airport or United. If you noticed the article didnt even say "a

29 Iowa744Fan : Figures that they would announce this a week after I buy my tickets to MCO on them to go to the Daytona 500. Also, Go #24!!!

32 DeltaGator : Wouldn't you think they would use larger planes to ferry folks down for Spring Break and Bike Week? Or would they just move some planes around to add
33 RL757PVD : Its still early... you dont want to add capacity too early...typically florida seasonal additions are announced in December or January
34 DeltaGator : Very true. I grew up in Titusville and have never considered Daytona the capitol of Florida industry so CRJs may be the right size for normal conditi
35 RL757PVD : Usually there are contract issues with mainline, plus it may be better to add a 3rd frequency rather than add 50 seats to make it a 737-500. I think
